Overview

Edinburgh Combat Challenge is an exciting new laser combat game using state of the art authentic infra-red weapons with a range of up to 200 metres. You can experience being part of a real life computer game set outdoors with authentic live sounds and game plays. It's completely safe with no hidden costs. It's a great fun day out for all the family with participants from the age 8 upwards able to take part in our games set in our woodland. We have free on-site parking and are on an LRT bus route. We are situated just 4 miles from the city centre. Bookings need to be made in advance and we can run parties every day.
