New! Quaser
BOOK TO BLAST by simply calling 0871 873 2450.

Stalk your opponents through a futuristic quasar/lazer landscape featuring ramps, gangways, strobe and UV lighting, swirling fog and music with the goal of shooting your opponents and destroying their base using state-of-the-art laser gun equipment.

Lead your team into the Airlock and receive your mission briefing, safety check and rules of engagement before entering the quasar/lazer battle arena (features vary across arenas). Each player is armed with state-of-the-art laser gun equipment and body armour covered in laser sensors to identify if you get hit!

To score points you need to land a laser strike within the area of the pack and gun, but remember your opponents will be trying to do the same! You will know if you are hit as your armour vibrates and you are knocked out of the quasar/lazer game temporarily.

Quasar and lazer game missions and team orders vary according to the number of players, experience levels and the time booked so you can enjoy solo, team, advanced team or even base station and sentry missions. Ask one of our quasar/lazer mission commanders for more information.

Our quasar and lazer arenas are open to those over 4ft in height. Children aged under 6 are granted access at the managements discretion. The management reserve the right to refuse admission. Customers with poor eyesight, a heart condition or epilepsy are not permitted. For groups who are under 16 years of age it is requested that a parent, guardian or responsible person aged 18 or over is present.
