We are a unique Military Themed Attraction which consists of a Military Museum and Outdoor Laser Combat games and Military Vehicle Rides. Our outdoor Laser Combat is used regularly as team building exercises. Providing a fun way for people to gain the ability of organisation, communication, leadership skills and working together as a team.

All the missions run by our instructors over our themed arenas are designed so your teams are encouraged to work and develop on all these skills and more. While also enjoying physical exercise! Our Military Museum consists of many artifacts from the cold war, it is a private museum collection of British Army equipment and vehicles. Our instructors will lead you on a tour with informative talks throughout the Museum giving participants the opportunity to gain knowledge of all the equipment and vehicles present. Also allowing you to interact with some equipment and see how it was and may still be used.

Why is this venue great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

We have over ten years experience with a large number of schools and clubs that have returned to us year after year or booked regular visits. Many staff having been in the armed forces themselves and are happy to pass on their knowledge.

What does a typical school trip or educational visit include?

Our centre is military themed from the moment you arrive, and all participants will be kitted with combat clothing, briefings held indoors in our military tents, sand bag hallways and loads of military vehicles to see all adding to the overall theme.

We do tailor each visit specifically to the needs of the group so whether you are taking part in our outdoor combat games or our guided museum tours it will be run to the ability of the group.

The Combat Games consist of team building and physical exercise as well as the ability to follow instructions in a fun and safe activity that everyone above the age of 8 years can take part in. Our Military Museum tours will cover some ww2 topics but the main focus is Cold War equipment and does cover gas masks and CBRN, camouflage and concealment, feeding the troops and rations, communications equipment, armoured vehicles, softskin vehicles, air raid shelters.
