How long before my session do I need to arrive
  • Customers need to arrive on site 45 minutes before their session for check in, safety briefings and orientation time. Failure to do this may result in you missing your session.
Do I need a licence?
  • No you do not need a licence to experience the Crossbow. We can show you the basic and give you hints and tips on how to become an expert in no time.
What is the minimum age that you have to be to take part?
  • The minimum age for the crossbow is 14 years old.
How many people can take part at the same time?
  • Seven people are able to shoot at the same time. This means you are able to compete with up to six other people at once. Our standard sessions are 60 minutes and have a maximum of 7 people per session. Larger groups booking private hire can take turns to go head to head with one another throughout the session and collect scores at the end.
I have a bad back, shoulder or neck, should I do the Crossbow?
  • The crossbows require a certain amount of strength and mobility in order to be able to draw the cross bowstring back effectively. You will also experience some tension followed by the rapid loss of that tension when you loose (release) the arrow. If you have a mild back or neck problem that wouldn't be effected by this, then as long as you are aware of the risks, we would be happy to allow you to take part.
  • However if you are in any doubt we would advise you talk to your doctor for further advice before making your booking.
