  • Adventure Days & Adventure Camps FAQ

    Below are a collection of questions other people have asked in the hope that this can be of help in the future.

    Is this suitable for girls?

    Absolutely YES!  The girls 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 girls LOVE Lasergaming because they feel they can join in the fun without being covered in bruises the next day!

    Do we play with the people we book with?

    Yes, when you arrive and we split the teams up we will ask you to stand with the people you want to stay with, we will then bunch lots of small groups into 2-4 main teams so you get to stay with your friends.

    What is the minimum number we can book for?

    You can book individual places for our adventure days or multiple places.  There isn't a minimum number for booking.

    Does there need to be a minimum number of players for the day to go ahead?

    Yes! We need a minimum of 10 players for each adventure day to go ahead. Our games are team games and we need players to make the experience fun. We will keep an eye on numbers in the run up to the event to make sure the day can go ahead but in the event we do not have enough players and we have to cancel the adventure day due to low numbers, we will contact you and you will have the choice to change the session to an alternative date or you can be refunded in full. Our aim is to give you 48hrs notice of any event cancellations

    Can we provisionally book places?

    Unfortunately we do not offer provisional bookings as all our bookings are offered online on a first come first served basis.  We do get booked up very quickly so we recommend booking as soon as possible.

    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 players 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 players 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 thick waterproof coat if raining. We recommend sunscreen and insect repellent.

    Please leave all valuables at home

    How old does my child need to be?

    The minimum age for our adventure days is 8 years old. In line with our insurance and health and safety policies, we can not accommodate 7 year olds under any circumstances. This includes children who are nearly 8. The maximum age for adventure days is 16 years old.

    Is there somewhere to park when dropping off the kids?

    Yes we have plenty of FREE parking and also coach and minibus parking. Players and visitors park at their own risk. Please note Oxford Adventure Park 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 and take care when entering and exiting the carpark as children are around. Please note Dogs are Not allowed in the woodland.

    Do I need to stay with my child?

    No, In line with our child protection policies, Parents do not stay on site, our kids adventure days are for kids only! Parents drop the kids off and then pick them up at the end of the day.  Abingdon town centre is 2 miles away, Didcot 4 miles and Oxford city 8 miles should you want to do some shopping whilst waiting.

    Do I need to sign a disclaimer for my child?

    Yes, all players under 18 years old must have a signed disclaimer form signed by their parents/legal guardian to play.  NO FORM – NO PLAY.  These are downloadable from our site here http://www.outdoorlaser.com/after-you-have-booked-your-adventure-day/.  If a parent 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.a

    Our Disclaimer forms require the parent to confirm that they do not know of any medical condition that their child suffers 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 or obtained medical guidance 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 if we allow the child to take part.

    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.  It may be a good idea to bring a spare pair of socks, change of clothes and some carrier bags for the journey home 🙂

    How do I book?

    To book your session pop over to our book online tab and select Adventure days.  Add the dates to the cart you wish to attend and check out.

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

    To secure the booking you will need to pay in full at the time of booking.  Payment can be made by credit or debit card.

    Can I increase numbers nearer the time?

    Yes of course subject to availability, you can pop back online anytime and check to see if there is space and if so book online.  Please note however our adventure days get booked up quickly.

    What happens if I book and then my child can't make it?

    If your booking is 30 days or more prior to the adventure day then you will receive a refund.  If the booking is for 30 days or less prior to the adventure day then unfortunately no refunds will be given for no shows, late notice cancellations or on the day illness's. The places are transferable for the same day so another child can come instead BUT they are not transferable to alternative dates.  To keep the costs down for all parents, we do not provide travel insurance or insurance for bookings that covers on the day illness's or late notice cancellations.

    What are the drop off and pick up times

    Drop off is from 9.50am for a 10am start and pick up at 5.30pm promptly.  On Arrival in the morning, please walk up to the forest shelter and sign your child in.  Pick up is also from the forest shelter where you will need to sign your child out.

    Can we buy food onsite?

    Food is available from the Forest Cafe, this includes burgers, Pizza, hot and cold drinks for an additional cost.   From February 2016, players can also purchase wood fired pizza cooked in our authentic italian pizza oven in the woodland for an additional cost.

    Can I order dogtags?

    Yes, you certainly can.  The dogtags are part of our adventure day ranking system so players can earn their ranks and progress the more they play.  Dogtags are £3.99 each and players will receive player perks depending on their rank in game. Dogtags can be pre-ordered at the time of booking or ordered on the day.

    No, our camps are for children only.

    **Is there plenty of lasergaming?

    **Is it suitable for boys and girls

    It certainly is!

    **What happens if it rains?

    We carry on! We are a wet weather activity provider. We have a forest shelter in the woodland but all our activities are wet weather activities.
