We took our daughter for her 10th birthday party, with 10 of her pals and her wee sister. They *loved* it - all red sweaty faces and big grins. The food was sufficient to keep them fuelled for the 2nd game (they had 2, 30 minute games), and the staff helped out with the birthday cake too. Overall the trip was excellent and we'll definitely be going back - hopefully for an adult game at some point.

Points to note: as has been mentioned already, the cafe area is quite cold, so take extra layers if, like us, you're just sitting around waiting while the kids have all the fun. The kids were coming out of the game arena and there were two or three (minor) complaints from them about bumps and bruises - mostly from people colliding when running; although this is against the rules, these rules were clearly being broken by the kids - I think that a couple of extra marshalls in the game zone for kids parties wouldn't go amiss - we'd have been happy to take on that role to assist but weren't made aware if that was an option or not. It did feel like there was a staff member missing - the cafe was mostly unstaffed, so we only really had the chance to buy one cup of coffee - a permanent presence in front of house would have been nice.

None of this, however, would prevent us from going again - I can't wait for my own first visit to play.

Thanks for taking the time to feed back to us, we really appreciate it. We are aware of the potential for the front of house to feel a little cold due to the vast height of the celing. This is something that we're looking at tackling, but it's quite an investment though of course it will pay dividentds with our current rather high heating bill.

As far as bumps and bruises are concerned, we do warn players, as you rightly say but we will be speaking to supervisory staff to ensure that they are as proactive as possible in safeguarding players, so thanks for the feesback on that issue.

Finally, re the front of house cover, we'll look at the way we manage breaks in future to make sure that they don't impact on customer service, we hate to leave money unspent!

Thanks again for the feedback, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Had our son's 9th birthday party there, a few of them had been there before and first time for others. All nine of them had a great time and would definitely recommend it to others.

My 12 year old had a great birthday party here. All the players seemed to enjoy themselves immensely and had a good time running around. The staff were very good. They worked well together and managed to create just the right atmosphere of fun and excitement. They also provided very good service for the party meal. I did not play myself, but saw the battlefield area which looked better than it does in the photos. Darker and more exciting with two levels and plenty of 'streets' to run down and places to hide in.

Celebrated a friends birthday here. We were a group of 20/30 year olds and had a great laugh and run about. I would definately recommend a visit.
