Activity Rules

Remember these rules while letting your hair down:

BOWLING

- Do not step over or proceed past the foul line at any time. (That’s the massive black line at the start of the lane if you didn’t know)

- Do not bowl more than one ball down the lane at any time. Only one guest bowling at a time.

- We offer our Strike Bowling shoes as part of the experience. To ensure you look good on the lanes and to assist with your bowling action. (Stilettos look hot but not practical). Guests can wear their own footwear so long as they are deemed safe and appropriate. (Closed toe and flat soled e.g. trainers, sneakers, boat shoe).

- Strike bowling shoes must not be worn outside. (This is technically stealing)

- Do not place your hands inside the ball return (unless you have fully insured them beforehand)

- We allow 6 people per lane. For groups more than 6 we can split across multiple adjacent lanes.

- Any lane faults must be reported to reception. (Just because your mother says you're technical doesn’t mean it’s true)

- While a fault is being attended to, no balls are to be sent down the lane.

- For the safety of all guests, any lane misuse will result in games being immediately suspended.

LASER TAG

- We recommend all personal belongings such as keys, wallets, phones etc are left outside of the arena. We suggest using one of the lockers.

- Everything that you find in the room, needs to stay inside the room. The Game Master will get you to leave everything for the game in the game at the end of your challenge. They will also do a quick reset of the room in case things have accidentally ended up in your pockets.

- Please notify the Game Master about any medical background concerning Epilepsy, Colour Blindness, or Cardiovascular conditions, as the rooms might contain flashing lights, jump scares, triggering content, and/or puzzles that require you to perceive colors.

- Please read the information relating to each escape room carefully before booking. Most of our escape rooms have an age limit of 15+ due to adult themes. However, for rooms like Jailbreak or Moonshot, we do allow children who are aged 8+ with adult supervision.
