Laser tag is as fun as it sounds!! Prepare to get your legs moving and your heart rate pumping as you manoeuvre through the arena, hunting as a pack, breaking up into small groups or going for the lone wolf approach. The darkness will act like your friend to hide you, but even the dim lighting won't stop the brightly coloured LED lights on your packs and weapons showing you exactly where everyone stands. You will get caught up in the moment and you will feel more than a little pride in hearing that you got the top score or that your team won.

It is recommended that all participants pack a drink bottle and lunch or bring some money to purchase refreshments (Lunch is not provided). All participants are also required to wear suitable footwear and pack a towel and change of clothes.
