I had booked Archery, .22 Air Rifle Shooting & Axe Throwing combo for 2 hours for my husbands birthday as a surprise for him and his friends. The experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Tom the instructor was so lovely and entertaining. He had us all laughing for the whole 2 hours to the point where we were in tears. Made the whole experience that much better.
Nina who I had booked the event with went above and beyond to find us a time slot as it was so last minute, which I really appreciated.
I would 100% recommend this event and we will be visiting again soon.
What a brilliant time
Went with some mates as part of a Stag do. Tom looked after us and we had a brilliant time. I had thought we had booked as just us, but we had one extra join who wasn’t part of our party. Nevertheless they were made to feel as part of our group and we all had a great laugh. Loved the idea of archery, .22 rifles and axe throwing. Thank you so much for great entertainment!
