Parties and Groups
Whether it’s a birthday party, family celebration or you’d like to bring your sports team or community group to play, we’ve got something for you.
We can offer you exclusive access to our venue at Queen Elizabeth Country Park if you have 12 or more participants, or we can come to you if you have a suitable venue (additional fees may be necessary).
What does it cost?
To keep things simple, we offer three options and a per-person fee for those in addition to the minimum group size.
Up to 12 players:
1 hour: £180 (£15 per extra participant)
1.5 hours: £204 (£17 per extra participant)
2 hours: £228 (£19 per extra participant)
How many people are needed for a group booking?
12 Participants is the minimum requirement for an exclusive booking (you would be the only people in the session) and is subject to the date/time you’d like being available. If it’s not available because it’s already a public session with bookings on, we’re more than happy to offer the same rate, but there will be other smaller group(s) also participating on the day.
If you have less than 12, you can simply book onto one of our public shared sessions on your preferred date.
Is it just for kids?
Most definitely not, Laser Tag is suitable for a wide range of ages, we’ve hosted everything from 6th Birthdays, Cadets, Football Teams and 40th Birthday Parties and we can cater to everything in between – adults are more than welcome to participate too.
How do I book?
Please first check the dates available at the bottom of the page, these slots are dedicated to group bookings. If the date/time you’d like is not here, please also check our main bookings page – if the date/time you’d like is currently allocated to a shared session and does not have any bookings, we may be able to convert this into a dedicated session for you.
Please contact us by telephone, email ([email protected]) or via Facebook Messenger to enquire about your preferred date(s). From there, we’ll confirm availability and issue you with booking paperwork – owing to the popularity and demand for our group bookings, availability changes frequently so no booking is confirmed until booking paperwork is issued and a deposit payment has been made.
This is particularly relevant where your preferred date/time is currently allocated to a public session, these are available for the general public to book onto 24 hours a day in a completely automated manner. If your preferred date falls into the above and there are no bookings on that date, we’ll convert it for your exclusive use, if there are bookings, we will offer you the same group rate but make you aware that other groups will also be participating.
Can we eat there as well?
This one doesn’t have a straightforward answer, it’s a yes, and a no. You can absolutely bring your own food and make use of the facilities of the park itself before or after the session, including picnic spaces, but it’s outdoors, not covered and therefore weather dependent. We have a section of woodland which we use for our games, but have no other facilities of our own.
There is a cafe within the park, but it’s at the visitors centre, which presents a logistical issue as it’s not somewhere you can easily walk to so would need vehicles to facilitate this.
There are two barbecue spots close to our venue that offer cover, but these require additional payment and tend get booked up very quickly, booked by the ½ day session – these are ‘Juniper BBQ’ and ‘Pizza Oven at Juniper’ on the Park Explorer (https://www.hants.gov.uk/thingstodo/countryparks/qecp/explore). The closest uncovered BBQ spot with benches is ‘Windmill View BBQ 9’ on the same park explorer link above.
If there’s no catering available, what can we do instead?
Party organisers have proven resourceful so far, dependent on the time of your session, you could simply choose to not provide a meal, but provide some snacks for the break times between our scenarios (in a 2 hour session there are usually two 10 minute breaks for changeover of scenarios and time for a quick drink and snack). Skittles, Jelly Beans and/or fruit are ideal as these provide a well needed energy boost and a bottle of water of other drink is recommended too. Other groups have brought with them a flask of hot water to make hot dogs on the go, some have collected Takeaway Pizza or even McDonalds from nearby Petersfield. If you’re set on catering, there are limited options available from the park itself and we’d be happy to put you in touch with them to discuss your needs further – just ask!
What is the format of the event?
Our group bookings follow the same general format as our shared session, there will be a 30 minute period before the event allowing for equipment issue, ensuring all application forms have been completed and a full safety briefing and demonstration. From there, we tend to play 3 different scenarios, with each being played twice so that each team plays from each of the two bases to ensure fairness, with a ~10 minute break between the scenarios for drinks and a snack (which we recommend you provide, or ask your participants to bring with them). For an exclusive booking, we will ask you which scenarios you’ve enjoyed and let you determine what scenario you play for the final segment, for a shared booking, we tend to play a fixed scenario to finish up.
Enhance the group or party experience with Laser Squad Dog Tags and Certificates, for just £2.50 per person. Let us know when you enquire.
