“Fantstic Staff, Great day, super value for money.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Me and my boys went on a Friday afternoon. the track was quiet and the staff were fantastic. avoid weekends, if you can go during the week, but if not, do not let it put you off, still go.

Very clean, well set out, staff make your experience. They even gave us advice after our first track outing, which improved the experience no end.

When you book it looks expensive, but its good value for money. You can get snacks and drinks. Health & Safety is very high on their agenda, but not so that it spoils your day.

“Best 2 hours of adrenaline packed fun.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We arrive 12 o'clock Sunday, a pleasant welcome and easy signing in process. We were briefed on the weapons and games superbly, very simple to understand.
It was myself my wife and our 2 children 11yrs and 13yrs old. We were on the area with other groups and split into teams, amazing how the teams got to know each other so well and start working as a team.
The weapons are just so realistic, weight and dimensions and accuracy. The game designs are well thought of and challenging, utilising teamwork and skill.
My children are still laughing and talking about it now 5hrs later, my wife was not to keen on going but soon as she got her rifle she was GI Jane, I think she was addicted after 30seconds.
I would highly recommend to all families and business for team building and just pure fun, thank you to all the staff.

I came here with a group of 12 teenagers and two staff. The karting session was very well organised and the young people loved it.
After lunch we were kitted up for the Combat session and led out to the arena. I thought it might be a bit dull compared to indoor laser type games but this couldn't be further from the truth.
It was fun, exciting and exhausting. As a Youth Worker I've done a lot of team building activities with young people and would definitely recommend this as a fantastic way to develop communication skills, improve team working and encourage cooperation.
