Laser Combat at Hatton Adventure World

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.

Ei100B Smoke Alarm GIVEAWAY


Residential fire safety partner Ei Electronics is once again supporting the Fire Kills campaign to make people aware of the importance of regularly testing smoke alarms.

Based on the theme “Tick Tock Test”, the campaign starts on the 16th March.

The Fire Kills campaign is held annually by the Department for Communities and Local Government to educate people about fire safety to help them prevent fires; Last year over 200 people died in fires in the home. Statistics show that you are at least 4 times more likely to die in a fire in the home if there is no working smoke alarm.

Regularly checking your smoke alarm is just as important as fitting the alarm in the first place.  

Checking your smoke alarm takes no more than a couple of minutes each week and being too busy or forgetting could cause damage to your home or even worse, your life.

The Ei100B from Ei Electronics – which responds to a wide range of fires – is an easy to install, battery operated smoke alarm which starts from just £5 an alarm, which isn't a lot of money to put aside to potentially save you and your family’s lives.

When you test your smoke alarms you could help test the smoke alarm of an older family member, neighbour or friend too.  It takes no time at all and gives your family and others a much better chance of surviving a fire.

The Ei100B from Ei Electronics can be purchased from Wilkinson or online at Amazon UK.

For more information and fire safety tips visit the Fire Kills website at: 

and for more information on the range of products from Ei Electronics please visit


Now here is your chance to win one of two bundles of FOUR smoke alarms (RRP £5 each) I have up for grabs for your home to give you that little extra peace of mind and help protect your family against house fires.

Afternoon Fun In The Park Part 2

Friday Mummy went off to Blogon Cymru so daddy was left looking after us.

By the time we got back from the train station from dropping mummy off and having lunch there was only an hour left till we had to go and pick big bro up from school, so daddy suggested we went to the park again.

Awesome we thought, we loved going there on Monday and couldn't wait to go back, we didn't think it would be so soon but we're glad it was it's awesome there.

We played a little on the small children's play area then persuaded daddy to take us on the big children's area for longer this time compared to our short visit on Monday.

We went on the big climbing area which was really really cool, it has a awesome fast slide which we both really loved going down.


Daddy took TP along the climbing course holding his hand tightly to make sure he didn't fall but also letting him see how fair he could go by himself.

I went up and over and round the tunnel bit again and again whilst daddy pushed TP in the big circle swing thingy and also round and round in the silver shiny spinning thing, how he wasn't sick I'll never know.

It was almost time to collect JR from school but before we went daddy pushed TP on the swings whilst I played on the slide, how much fun we had, can't wait to come back again really soon I hope.

Afternoon Fun In The Park Part 1

This afternoon whilst mummy was getting her hair cut ready for her weekend away at Blog on Cymru daddy took us to the park.

As soon as daddy opened the gate to the play area we were gone, straight onto different climbing frames, in different directions, which meant daddy stood there with his head spinning wondering which way to go first lol.


Once we got bored of this area we got daddy to take us down to the big kids area, this was well awesome with bigger things to climb on and funny things to sit in and be spun round in.


Before we had to go and fetch big bro from school we had one last go on the swings which little sis didn't really enjoy at first but once she got used to it she didn't want to come off lol.
