In pictures: New Zapt Laser Tag at Milton Country Park is sure-fire hit with all





A new leisure attraction, Zapt Laser Tag, was a hit with visitors to Milton Country Park over the weekend, as more than 250 people – of varying ages – took aim.

Located in a designated area of the park, Zapt Laser Tag is the latest attraction to be opened by Beth and Chris Walthew and Walthew Leisure, the award-winning family business behind the successful Clip ‘n Climb Cambridge.

It was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday (11 May), with Mick Woolhouse, CEO of Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust, doing the honours.

Beth said the launch was “brilliant” and bolstered by beautiful sunny weather.

“We had about 150 people playing on the first day. There were some people there that were in the park anyway and had signed up for the launch day, so we had all sorts. It was really good.”

Beth says that on the Sunday a number of those who tried it came from the Junior Park Run. “We probably had about 100 on the second day,” she noted, “so it was quite a full day.”

Reviews so far have suggested that Zapt Laser Tag, a team strategy game, is “very good for families”. “A lot of adults were playing with their kids,” said Beth.

“I think the youngest we had in there was seven and the oldest we had in there was 80! He didn’t play as fast a game, but that’s still fine.

“I think it’s just a really nice addition to the park. A few of our players just signed up on spec – they were out for a walk and then just added it on.”

Other reviews stated that it was good value for money, with sessions lasting 75 minutes, including the briefing, and typically charged at £18 per person.

“They had good games and felt that that was good value,” said Beth.
