Holwell Pastures

Scout groups quite often book laser tag hire. Generally the laser tag hire is as part of a package of events for a scout meet up. Our event too us to a purpose build camp at Holwell pastures near to melton Mowbray.

Setting up the laser tag

We arrived early to set up. This was the second time that we had been booked to provide our laser tag. It poured with rain the last time we attended this event with out laser tag. So we planned for a similar day. As luck would have it the weather was amazing! Whilst the scouts were conducting the morning routine we set about inflating the laser maze.

We had some time before the games started so we relaxed with a cup of tea in the gazebo. Lots of the scouts remembered us from last time. As well as the laser tag there were lots of other activities for the scouts to visit. Such as human table football, laser sword fighting (for would be jedi knights), rock climbing and even axe throwing!

Activities were arranged. With scouts into groups and spent 45 minute at each activity before moving onto the next one. Before the scouts played in the laser maze we gave them a safety brief. This was to let them know how to use the laser guns safely inside the laser maze. Next they went into the laser maze to play all against all games. There was a lot of competition within the groups. Even the scout leaders enjoyed playing against the scouts. We did have a treat when one of the groups brought a tray of cakes. They parents bakes some cake and by far the best was lemon drizzle.

Movie night after The laser games continued throughout the day with lots of fun being had by everyone. We even managed to get some team games played. Eventually we packed down the laser tag and headed home. For a treat the scout leaders put on movies in one of the tents.
