  • Stag/ Hen events FAQ

    We know how stressful booking an event can be and we hope to answer all your questions before you book your event with us. Below are a collection of questions other event planners have asked in the hope this can be of help in the future.

    What is the session format and how much time do we spending playing?

    On Arrival you will hand in your disclaimer forms to the commanding officer. You will then be briefed on the session ahead and begin kit up and weapon issue. Once you are ready the safety brief will begin and weapons training will commence. We will then form the teams and give you your first mission and send you on your way. This usually takes approximately 30 minutes in total. Throughout the rest of the session, other mission objectives will be given to you and you will continue to complete the mission objectives and you will continue gaming until the end of your session. If you are booking for the 2 hour option your game time will be 1.5hrs and if you are booking the 2.5hr option then the gaming time will be 2 hrs. The games are pretty full on and immersive so it will be action packed.

    Is this suitable for ladies?

    Absolutely YES! The Ladies LOVE Lasergaming, there is NO paint, NO projectiles, No Pain, NO bruises, NO masks and NO protective clothing needed just to play. We have 8 different gaming guns to choose from so we have the light weight SMG's that are only 2kg and we also have the big guns that weight 4kg so something for everyone in team. The way our games are structured it isn't all about who is the fastest and strongest, there are many roles within the team and Ladies LOVE Lasergaming because they feel they can join in the fun without being covered in bruises the next day!

    Do we play on our own or against other groups?

    If your group size is less than 25 players then the session will be non-exclusive so their MAY be others playing against your team.  If you are wanting exclusivity then you will need to book for 25 or more players.

    In the event that it is just your team playing at the time then your whole group will be split into 2 and the 2 teams will battle each other.

    If there is another adult group in at the same time then your whole group will stay as one and Battle the other group.  Other groups will have players that are only over 16 years of age.  These might be corporate events, stag & hen events or social clubs.

    We wouldn't ever split up any of the group and mix with another so if there are 2 different groups in at the same time then you would stick with your own teams, we would't split some of you up and make you play in a team with another group you don't know.

    If your group size is over 25 players or you are paying based on the minimum charge for 25 then your session automatically becomes exclusive to your group only.

    What is the minimum number we can book for?

    For our 2hr option, On a weekend (Saturday/Sunday), the minimum number you can book for is 10 players.  This is the minimum charge so even if you have 8 players you would still need to book and pay for 10 players for a weekend booking.

    During the week (Monday-Friday), the minimum number you can book for is 15 players.  This is the minimum charge so even if you had 10 players only, you would still need to book and pay for 15 players for a in the week booking.

    For both the 2.5hr and the Jungle Commando option the minimum charge/group size is based on 15 players.

    Does the Stag or Hen attend FREE?

    Yes they do, we know when organising your hen event you have to factor in the costs of the hen or stag's activities too, so to help you on your way with this, we give you a free place for them for FREE!   The free place is in addition to the minimum numbers booked, so if your booking for x 10, you would still pay for x 10 and the 11th place would be free, or if you were booking for x 15 then the 16th place would be free for you.

    Can we provisionally book a session?

    Unfortunately we do not offer provisional bookings as all our bookings are offered online on a first come first served basis.  We have lots of gaming guns so we can usually accommodate groups on most days.  You can always check availability online and then once you have collected all your monies in and you ready to book, re-check availability online then if there is space you can process your booking online.  If there is a specific date you would like that is not online or a date that is in the week then please give us a call and we can check that for you on 01865 410074

    Will it hurt?

    Lasergaming has no projectiles so there is NO paint, NO projectiles, No Pain, NO bruises, NO masks and NO protective clothing needed just to play.

    What clothing/footwear do you need to wear?

    Depending on the time of year you will need to wear appropriate outdoor clothing - there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing!

    For winter months we recommend warm layered clothing, waterproof coat/Jacket, old clothes you don't mind getting muddy and grubby in the woodland, trainers or walking boots only - no open toed/open heeled shoes.  Shoes must have adequate ankle support for outdoor use.  Thin gloves, and anything else to keep you warm.

    In summer months we recommend long trousers (we are a woodland and insects live int he woodland), long sleeved t-shirt, trainers or walking boots only - no open toed/open heeled shoes.  Shoes must have adequate ankle support for outdoor use.  You may wish to bring a think waterproof coat if raining.  We recommend sunscreen and insect repellent.

    Please leave all valuables at home

    Is there parking?

    Yes we have plenty of FREE parking and also coach and minibus parking.  Players and visitors park at their own risk.  Please note Lasergaming UK Ltd does not accept liability for any loss or damage to motor vehicles, their accessories or contents whilst parked in our carpark.  Please leave all valuables at home.

    What is the difference between a group/stag/hen session and a pay and play session?

    A group session is specifically tailored and structured to the groups playing and their needs. The missions and the game play will reflect the type of event your attending. The missions will be fun but age appropriate.

    In the pay and play sessions we have families, kids and mixed adults/kids playing so our missions have to be very generic and suitable for both kids and adults.  They are very non-specific and non structured as the session is just for fun and there isn't any VIP's.  Players are mixed up in to different teams.

    Do I need to sign a disclaimer?

    Yes, all players must have a signed disclaimer form to play.   NO FORM – NO PLAY.  These are downloadable from our site.  If a player highlights a medical condition, they must provide details before the day, for example, if they have ticked back injury, they must provide details on the nature of the injury, how long ago etc.  If we feel the injury or medical condition may need further assessment we will recommend you discuss taking part in our activities with your GP as we are not medically qualified to assess you suitability to take part.

    Our Disclaimer forms require the player to confirm that they do not know of any medical condition that they suffer from which might have the effect of making it more likely that whilst under our care, the player be involved in an incident, which could result in injury to themselves or others.  This includes epilepsy, seizures, convulsions, Asthma, Back problems, recent injuries and other conditions.  In the event a participant discloses a medical condition, we would recommend they have written consent from their doctor to take part in the activities.

    In order to play Lasergaming, all players must be able to safely negotiate their way around our woodland and gaming zones and be able to hold their gaming gun unassisted throughout the duration of the gaming.  They must be free from serious injury.  Please call us on 01865 410074 if you are unsure about taking part.

    With good preparation and management of the session, it is not very often players can not take part, it is better to call us and check beforehand if there is anything you are unsure about so we can make preparations for that particular player, conduct the necessary risk assessments and check suitability in line with our company policies rather than them turn up on the day, and they can not take part due lack of time for preparation for medical conditions and injuries. They will also need time to check with their GP.  If we have recommended you check suitability or you disclose a medical condition, injury on the day on your disclaimer which we think increases the risk by you participating in our activities, we will ask you to sign an additional disclaimer.

    In line with health and safety legislation, If a player ticks the Asthma Box, they must have a inhaler with them to take part. We can not allow players to take part without their life saving medication to treat them in the event it is needed regardless of how long ago it was since they last had an attack.

    Please note we can not allow players with broken bones in casts to take part.

    What happens if it rains?

    Being in the UK where it rains ALOT, We are a wet weather activity which means we run our sessions in all weathers all year round. Providing you have the right outdoor clothing which is Key, you will still have an awesome time!  Our woodland is sheltered with leaf cover for most of the year.

    How do I book?

    To book your session pop over to our book online tab and select the type of session you are looking for.  If the type of session you are looking for is not showing online then please call one of our team and we will be happy to check the dates for you

    Do we pay a deposit or pay in full when booking?

    At the moment, to secure the booking you will need to pay in full at the time of booking.  One person needs to make the booking so it is a good idea to collect your monies in first.  Payment can be made by credit or debit card.

    Can I increase numbers nearer the time

    Yes of course subject to availability, it is always a good idea to drop us an email or give us a call if you are looking to increase your numbers so we can make sure we can accommodate the additional players.  We have over 100 gaming guns at Lasergaming.  If we can we will need to take payment to secure the additional places.

    Can I decrease the numbers near the time?

    We are a very busy site, so as per the booking terms and conditions we require 4 weeks notice for a full refund. We recommend booking for the minimum required and then increasing your numbers nearer the time rather than booking high numbers and then cancelling places.  Unfortunately we are unable to refund places which are cancelled within 4 weeks of the booking.  To stay cost effective to our customers, We also do not provide insurance for late cancellation of places due to illness or refund places for on the day illness's, please see our full terms and conditions of booking here

    Can we buy food onsite?

    On weekends Food is available from the Forest Cafe at an additional cost and can be ordered when booking or pre-ordered prior to your session.  From March 2016, players can also purchase wood fired pizza cooked in our authentic italian pizza oven in the woodland at an additional cost.
