Christmas Party Laser Combat Reviews

After stupidly leaving the staff Christmas party until the last minute I was seriously stressing about getting something organised. Thankfully I hadn't left it too late though and I managed to book a laser combat experience just in time to avoid a mutiny!

The reason I went for a laser combat experience was because my kids had been earlier in the year and watching on from the sidelines all I wanted to do was join in! It also gave the team the chance to let off some steam and have some fun at the end of what'd been a pretty hectic year.

When I told the guys in the office they were all really up for it too, in fact I don't think I've ever been as popular. We're a pretty competitive bunch so the chance to try a laser combat experience gave us the perfect opportunity to settle the office bragging rights once and for all. I booked the experience for all 18 of us, and even though we range from 18-60ish I was fairly confidant we'd survive 2 hours of laser combat.

Because I'd left booking our Christmas party so late we didn't have long to wait until our event, which was probably a good thing in hindsight. On the day of our laser combat experience I met the rest of the team at venue, and once we'd signed in and got changed into out combat gear we headed straight into the game zones.

I'd booked the same indoor venue that I'd taken the kids too, and I'd forgotten how good the zones were. They were more like movie sets than combat zones and they even had special lighting and sound effects. As we battled our way round the zones things got as competitive as I'd expected, nut everyone took it in good spirit.

We played loads of different games, and the whole team seemed to absolutely love the laser combat experience. I think I enjoyed it even more than my kids had and that's saying something. So I'm definitely going to squeeze another laser combat experience in before someone realises I’m old enough to know better.

"We came to Laser Strike for a stag party and from start to finish we loved our time there. Elliot, our Marshall, was very knowledgable and very helpful. He made the games fun and based everything around what we wanted to do. He's great at his job, and if you get him as your Marshall when you play, I can guarantee that you will have a great time.

We had to choose between laser strike and another nearby laser tag place in gateshead, and I am very glad that I made this decision. They bring you in early to brief you so that you're not wasting the time that you have paid for to do health and safety (which is what happens at other places in Tyne and Wear, so the hour that you paid for becomes 40minutes).

We found everything to be so fun and the staff to be brilliant. We enjoyed it so much that we are already planning to come back and try out their air soft games (I think that's what it is called. Basically their non-messy version of paintball)."
