The first outdoor pay and play laser gun attraction for youngsters and their parents has been launched at Hatton Adventure World near Warwick, in time for the Easter holidays.
Called Laser Combat, the £70,000 laser tag game is expected to be a major attraction over Easter, said Adventure World manager Richard Craddock.
He said: “This is the first laser game of its kind, where you can just turn up without a booking and pay to play - we've trialled it on a couple of member nights and it was a huge success. The parents, especially the mums, were having as much fun as the kids.”
The games, which include Team Death Match and Capture the Flag, last 40 minutes and can be played with up to 40 children and parents at a time. This includes a health and safety briefing, getting kitted out with high-tech gear, dressing in army uniforms and being armed with MP5 style submachine guns.
“The staff have been brilliant, designing and building the bespoke half-acre arena full of obstacles such as sandbags, broken buildings and crates painted to look like explosives” added Richard.
Management at the park, which has until now primarily appealed to younger children, said the laser game had been introduced for children aged eight and above, and accompanying adults.
Other recent attractions for that age group include a reptile house, an assault course and the new code-cracker game, comprising a series of riddles around the adventure park.
Laser Combat will be available during normal park opening times (between 10am and 5pm) and is included in the entry price.
Notes: Laser Combat is only for children over the age of eight and more than 1.2 metres tall.
In addition, the school holidays will also feature falconry displays, fun fair rides, an indoor soft play area, a miniature JCB driving zone, children’s shows, a disco and the opportunity to meet farmyard animals.
Visitors will also be invited to pick a bunch of daffodils to take home.
Hatton Adventure World is located just off the A4177 between Warwick and Solihull.
