Birthdays are precious times to parents and children so we know how important it is that your event is not only amazing but creates memories that you look upon fondly in years to come. Organising a birthday party can be super stressful and Children these days have very high expectations when it comes to Birthday Parties.
With so many interactive devices these days such as XBox’s, PS4’s, Ipad’s and interactive consoles, when it comes to Birthday parties, kids expectations for their own birthday party experience is way higher than it used to be.

Please note - that we can NOT accommodate LATE arrivals under any circumstances, all players must be present for the party start time. The players will begin their 30 Minute safety briefing and Kit up and will be kitted out with team Id Headbands. These are used for Team Id. They will then go for weapon selection, we have 8 different gaming guns, ranging in weight and features. As soon as everyone is ready we will enter the battlefield for Mission Briefing.
After the first missions are completed the next missions will begin and this awesome game play continues until the last 5-10 minutes of the session, where they will return to de-kit. Don’t worry just before they de-kit we will group everyone together for Team photographs near the helicopter or the APC if consent has been given by all parents. If you have permission from all the parents, you can also take a photograph at this time too. Once the team has de-kitted and the final debrief completed, we will take all the players to the birthday cake area for 15 minutes and then escort you down to the car park for pick up.

With good preparation and management of the session, it is not very often players can not take part, it is better to email 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.

Once we are at full capacity, we can not add extra players on. We get very busy and most weekends are booked up. We highly recommend you ONLY invite the number of players you have booked for. That way you are secure in knowing they have equipment booked out for them and you will not have to disappoint and uninvite guests!
If you do not know your confirmed numbers yet, we have seen other parents throughout the years send a quick email or phone around guests parents asking availability about a specific date and explaining that there are limited places.
If you do find you need to add extra players to the booking, ALWAYS call us first before inviting those players, we can tell you how many spaces we have left and give you an idea if we can accommodate them. We really do not like disappointing parents or children so please, please do not invite more players than you have booked for.

When you make your booking, you will need to know how many players you are booking for, minimum x 10 up to 50. How many guns you secure at the time of booking is how many guns you will have on the day. If you book for 10 for example, and only 8 people turn up on the day, you will still be charged in full for the amount of players you have booked for. We may not be able to accommodate extra players if you over invite, please see our inviting people section. We do not take deposits, parties must be booked and paid for in full.

Once you have booked your session with us, you will receive your confirmation of booking via e-mail. There will be a link to our pdf attachment called essential booking info pack This will have important information on that you will need to read regarding your party. The email will confirm how many players you have booked for, the time and date of your party and the amount you have paid. You will also receive a receipt from stripe for your card transaction.

Please note this is limited to 1 free place per party and is in addition to the numbers booked. You also must have personally booked the party with us before in your name, unfortunately the offer is not valid whereby you have shared a party and a friend has made the booking and paid directly.
Your confirmation of booking will direct you to download your party invites, directions and player consent forms from our website for each player. Players that are aged under 18 years old are required to have a parental consent form signed by their parents in order for them to play on the day. No Form – No play. Over 18’s need to sign their own forms. You will need to issue the link to the online disclaimers for your party to your guests.
PLEASE NOTE – We recommend that you do not send out more invites than you have guns booked. With some alternative parties, parents will send out 15 invites in the hope of getting 10 “yes’s”. With Lasergaming parties, we do NOT recommend this, our parties are very popular, and most children will change their plans to attend. In the past there have been incidents where mums have over invited, more people responded with a yes, than they had guns booked, all our guns were booked out, so the poor mum had to let down children after they had been invited by telling them now they couldn’t come. This can be avoided by not over inviting!
Please start by sending out the same amount of invites as you have guns booked, and then as people let you know if they can make it or not, then send out others if need be. Once you have invited your guests and people start accepting their invitations, some parents will inform you of information specific to their child, for example, they are vegetarian, they are allergic to wasp stings, they have had a broken arm in the past 6 weeks, they have a nut allergy etc. If you are unsure how this will affect your party, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss. In most cases, with good preparation and prior knowledge before the party day, by our staff team, players can still attend. For more info on this, please read our FAQ section. Please note as our activities are adventure activities, we must conduct a safety briefing at the beginning of each party. We therefore cannot accommodate late arrivals under any circumstances once the safety briefing has started. All guests need to arrive promptly on time to take part.
So you booked your party, sent your invites out and now its party day! On your invites it would have asked your guests to arrive 15 minutes before the party start time but no earlier. Please note - We cannot accommodate LATE arrivals under any circumstances, all players must be present from the start of the session in order to take part. As your guests are arriving they will need to remain in their vehicles. All children will be temperature checked. Once we have all groups ready, we will walk the groups up to the woodland and into the briefing zone. The party host will be asked to wait in our party shelter area. Each party is limited to 2 non players waiting on site. For health and safety reasons and child protection reasons, players only are allowed into the laser zones. The groups will now be briefed and weapons issued. They will begin the gaming and will not return until 10 minutes before the end of the party time. We will return your group to the briefing area for pictures if all parents have consented and then gather your group and escort them to the birthday area or down to the carpark for pick up by their parents. Please note we upload any pictures to Facebook on Monday’s and Fridays only. www.facebook.com/lasergamingoxford We hope you have a great day with us, and we love to hear the parents and Birthday children’s feedback after their parties, and are always looking to improve our services. If you have any comments or feedback you wish to share, or any photos of players, cakes etc, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Once the 15 minutes is up, we will escort you and your group/guests down to the car park for pick up and departure. The next group will be waiting in the car park and we will need time to be able to clean the areas before bringing them up to the same area where they will be having their safety briefing
Can Other Parents join us? Parents of guests are allowed to come up to the woodland at the end of the party, to the picnic area for your birthday cake celebrations. So we can prepare for the next group's arrival, we will escort your group and your guests down to the car park after 15 minutes. Please ensure your guests stay in the birthday area only, they are not permitted in any other areas of the woodland and to enter gaming areas.
