The ultimate laser tag adventure at Bewl Water

Time to round up the family! With summer fast approaching, we know how difficult it can be for parents to find six weeks’ worth of activities to keep the kids entertained. Whether you’re looking to teach them a thing or two with a summer’s paddle, or want to cool off with some inflatable fun, you won’t be short of things to do this summer at Bewl Water, and for an adventure, we promise the kids won’t forget, there’s no better activity than laser tag. So, grab your camo, it’s time to step into battle…

What is laser tag?

Gone are the days of claustrophobic spaces, flashing lights, and unrealistic sound effects. Nowadays, laser tag has evolved, and thrill seekers can expect a much more immersive, genuine experience as they face life-like combat scenarios on the battlefield.

The game itself is like paintball, minus the painful pelts to every part of your body. Laser tag is no-contact and instead of pellets, adventurers shoot laser beams at their opponents aiming to hit as many points as they can without getting zapped themselves.

What to expect on the day

At least 10 thrill-seekers are needed for a match where they’ll be kitted out with rifle-style guns and sensor packs ready to battle it out for 50 heart-stopping minutes. Games are chosen in advance, and players can choose from team deathmatch, last man standing, attack and defend, hunt the VIP and manhunt. A 10-minute briefing and demonstration will be given before the high-adrenaline, action-packed battle begins where teams can expect an exhilarating and unique experience like never before over in our specially deigned forest arena.

Who can play?

When we say everyone, we mean everyone! The great thing about laser tag is its appeal to those of all ages – from kids aged eight plus to mums, dads, aunties, uncles, and everyone in between, it really is a popular hit for everyone making it the perfect summer activity for all round entertainment.
