Went with some friends to celebrate a birthday. Set up very good. Facilities excellent. Only reason didn't give this 5/5 was because of some of the inconsiderate driving of people who obviously had done it before, I do realise that this is somewhat out with the control of the company, although I did see someone being warned for their aggressive...

Had a great time at the outdoor Laser Combat with our Youth Club from Grangemouth. A group ranging in age from 7 to 17 years old plus some adults. Chuck and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helped make the night fun and run smoothly. Thanks Stuart Paterson

Went recently with a group of friends. I've never been karting before so was a little nervous. Staff were great at keeping you right with what to do. Seems like they have all the checks to ensure no one has any issues. Once on the track the adrenaline kicked in and it was a blast. Would love to do it... More

Arranged for my son & his friends to get exclusive use of the Extreme Combat facilities for 2 hours, with pizza & juice afters. They had an amazing time, even though it was wet & cold, and there were lots of happy faces at the end of it! Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Highly recommend!
