Excellent laser tag with a brilliant 3 or four layers to play in, great guns that all worked and very atmospheric, a bit like the original Alien film. Really enjoyed this place and would definitely go back again.

We found this excellent value and our boys enjoyed a few hours here. We had a couple of coffees (not bad quality for this kind of venue) We were surprised it wasn't busier as it was Easter Monday.
