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?
Do we play with the people we book with?
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!
What is the minimum number we can book for?
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.
Does there need to be a minimum number of players for the day to go ahead?
You can book individual places or multiple places. There isn't a minimum number for booking.
Can we provisionally book places?
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
Will it hurt?
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.
What clothing/footwear do you need to wear?
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.
How old does my child need to be?
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
Is there somewhere to park when dropping off the kids?
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.
The minimum age for our adventure camps is 10 years old due to how physically, mentally and emotionally demanding the camp is. The maximum age for adventure days is 16 years old.
Do I need to stay with my child?
Yes we have plenty of FREE parking and also coach and minibus parking. Players and visitors park at their own risk. Please note Lasergaming and High Ropes 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 sign an online waiver for 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.
What happens if it rains?
Yes, all players under 18 years old must have a signed online waiver form signed by their parents/legal guardian to play. NO FORM – NO PLAY. These are sent to you before the camp/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 online waiver 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 email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 fractures, recent injuries, suspected fracture, broken bones or players in casts to take part. If your child has had any injury/surgery/sprain/fracture/break in the last 6 weeks, they will be unable to take part
How do I book?
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 🙂
Do we pay a deposit or pay in full when booking?
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.
Can I increase numbers nearer the time?
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.
What happens if I book and then my child can't make it?
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 so if we are full, we will be unable to offer anymore places.
What are the drop off and pick up times

**Can I drop off my child later or pick them up early?
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. The right clothing is KEY to outdoor adventure so making sure that the kids have the correct outdoor clothing will ensure they can stay comfortable. We also have fires going if it rains too!
