Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Wear?

Loose fitting clothes and trainers are recommended whilst playing. It can get quite warm once you start moving around so you will probably be most comfortable in a T-Shirt and loose fitting trousers/shorts. Dark clothes are a distinct advantage under the UV lights, which makes anything white glow.

How Long Do Games Last?

Each visit players have to participate in a “safety briefing”, explaining the rules/risks and tactics for laser games. Games last 15 minutes but we allow 20 minutes with suiting up/score analysis etc.

If I play 2 or More Games, How Long does it Take?

By default, we schedule a 20 minute break between games to allow players to get their breath back/grab a drink. Two games would take an hour. With three games we would allow you two games in a row followed by a 20 min game and then finish with your 3rd game. If you have limited time or would prefer to play your games back to back for any reason, please discuss this with the staff member taking your booking or email after making an online booking.

What If I Have a Medical Condition That May Affect My Ability to Play?

We do not recommend playing if you suffer from Epilepsy as there are flashing lights in the arena, we also recommend that Asthmatics or anyone sensitive to smoke machine smoke take caution when playing as there is a constant atmospheric smoke effect within the arena. If there are any other medical conditions you have that may affect your ability to play, please inform the marshals when asked during the relevant section of the safety briefing.

What Can I do In Between Games?

In between games you can relax in our cafe area which will serve both hot and cold drinks (including Slush) as well as cold snacks or hot/cold food from our kitchen; food such including "buckets" of chips, freshly-made 12" pizza, hot dogs, burgers and nachos.

Is There Parking?

Yes, there is a car park for up to 50 cars plus off-road parking. We do share our car park with Kidz Planet Playcentre and so allow time extra time for parking if you are visiting at the weekend as it gets busy during certain times of the year.

What Food Options are Available?

We have a kitchen on site for reasonably priced, tasty hot and cold food purchases; our fresh 12" pizzas being a speciality.

We also offer a cold buffet option for Christmas/large group bookings (min 15 players). Please email for details.

Do you Offer Group discounts for clubs etc?

We offer discounts to schools and some societies, please email for details. All groups of more than 10 paying players get a £1 discount per player on the "3 game" option.

Why is the Minimum Age 8 Years?

We have a recommended (not compulsory ) minimum age of 8 with a health & safety minimum height requirement of 1.2m. This is due to the body pack the players have to wear, the complexity of some games and the fact the arena is lit only by UV and has smoke effects.

There are two options available if your children are aged 8-10 years:

1) Come in and try the packs on your child and view the arena to decide if you think it is suitable .

2) We have a younger option in Kidz Planet that doesn't require the body pack and is suitable from 4 years (no height restriction).

Can I Look Around the Arena?

If you have never played before, we will be happy to give you a free guided tour.

What is the minimum/maximum number of players?

Our arena has a capacity of 24 players. There is no minimum. We will mix your group with others playing at the same time. Where possible we try to "age match" but this is not always possible, apart from in our age restricted sessions.

I am an adult, am I going to feel like a child again and have such a great time?

Yes, definitely!!
