Please allow time to reach your venue 15 minutes before your session start time. At High Lodge Thetford Forest the site is barrier controlled and a car parking charge is levied by the Forestry Commission. Charges are per hour and not included in your activity charge.

You will be met in the game site compound by our marshalls, be divided into two teams, kitted out into battle ready overalls, and then offered camouflage face paint for the ultimate effect. The overalls  will fit over your normal clothes, so wear loose comfortable clothing. You will get hot in the summer so we recommend shorts and t shirts at that time of year. 

Please wear sensible shoes, boots or trainers that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Our marshalls will give a full safety briefing including details of the guns and safe handling techniques Everyone is equipped with their own individual weapon with headband or hat fitted sensors and then we proceed to the battle zone. The session will involve a number of game play scenarios to suit the players, ages and terrain with opportunities to discuss team tactics. Each individual game will last around 10/15 minutes with breaks in between. All under the watchful eye of our marshalls who have full radio control and can start, pause and stop the games remotely.

After each game the scores are compared and the next scenario explained. At the end of the session players will be taken back to the compound to compare final scores, de-kit, remove face paint (and plan their next visit!).
