I booked the gold package party for my son's birthday. The kids were taken in to the maze, briefed, had photos taken and were off. As there were 10 of them I had assumed they would have the maze to themselves for the three games. However, random people were allowed to join which I did not expect. After the games were done, the kids were lead to a small room where they were given their food and drink. The walls are smeared with grease and it looks awful.
Following this, the kids were given party bags and a photo each which was a really nice memento.
If you're looking for a minimal fuss party then this is it! Staff handle everything, you just bring the cake and invite the kids.
Games and briefing are supposed to last 20 minutes each except they didn't. They lasted around 15 minutes. We were advised that three games would take an hour and yet they went in at quarter past and were out and eating on the hour.
I'd book again simply because the kids loved it but I do think if a party is booked then they should be the only ones in there at that time.

Hi, thanks for your review and feedback. With regards to the party packages, exclusive use is available for the arena if requested however 14 places must be paid for. Whether this is 14 players or 10 players and then an additional 4 "spaces" paid for at standard game prices. This is stated on the T&C's which are sent to customers booking parties under "The Session". Games are 15 minutes each, with regards to the 20 minutes - the extra 5 is to allow time for players to come out, look at their scores, grab a drink, etc. We say to allow an hour for 3 games as this all depends on how quickly we can get through the briefing (kids usually have a few questions and are also excited so calming them down can take a while) and also how quick they want to get back in the arena. With regards to the party room, we take on board the comment with regards to the walls. These have been painted 4 times since we opened in March 2016. We are going to be looking at some sort of wall covering to go along the bottom where kids sit so to stop sticky/messy hands getting on the walls. I am glad to hear the kids enjoyed themselves and hope to welcome you back again soon.

Didn't know what to expect but the kids and I had a brilliant time in Quasar, part of Ocean Beach pleasure park. We had a half hour game and it felt like longer. Terrific fun as part of a whole day out in the park and walking the beach.

While the staff on the ground could not have been more helpful..the manager was less than welcoming. Having organised a party with our food for allergic child she said she would heat up pizza. When we arrived she said she was only prepared to heat one pizza not 6, and charged me an extra £10. (Like £2 per pizza !). While I don't mind paying her attitude spoilt it, and frankly it is only a shed/ container at the back of an amusement park. the arena is not very big and only on one level. So while everyone had a good time I wouldn't go back. And I have not recommended it to my friends whose ten children I took along. But the kitchen crew and guys taking the kids around were fabulous and really made kids feel welcome and made it fun.

My wife, sister in law, 8 yr old son and I visited Quasar last Sunday. It gets very busy at times so we had to book in advance which was handled quickly and professionally over the phone. We were met by a friendly chap who looked after us and provided instructions as aswell as health and safety. He was very enthusiastic and friendly. We had a 30 min game and a great laugh. I have been to larger and better equipped laser game attractions however I found Quasar to be great value for money and the staff more than made up for any environment inadequacies. We intend to book the facility for my sons birthday. We will be returning soon.

We went for a birthday treat with a gang of kids aged around 8 / 9 this afternoon. The Polish guy (didn't get his name) was on duty at reception and was really friendly with the kids and obliging to the adults watching and waiting. Made waiting an hour for the kids to finish a real pleasure. Kids had a great time.

Booked a groupon for a birthday party £85 for 16 kids so wasn't expecting much but I was really impressed. The staff were particularly lush from the second we got there - nothing was too much trouble and they were brilliant with the kids who all throughly enjoyed themselves during the 3 different games. We also used the party room which is small but adequate and again the staff were incredibly helpful cutting and wrapping the cake would definitely recommend.

What more cud u ask for ... 13 10 year olds had a great time.I added laser maze and slush to the package... A week on and the kids are still raving about it. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Thanks for giving my 10 year old a great party and letting me arrange another date due to the weather.

The problems began at the moment of paying on line. The only option was via Paypal. I wanted to use a credit card but the only way to do that was to open a Paypal account and register my credit card. Life's too short! I did try it again a day later in case it was a wifi problem, but no. The feed back email contact option refused to send any of the dozen emails asking for advice. They must lose hundreds of paying customers this way and send customers to competitors.
