Update: Due to various circumstances, we will be unable to reopen until January 2022. We are very sorry about this but hope to see you next year and beyond. Thank you for your patience.             

We are an exhilarating outdoor laser adventure game that is played using wireless electronic guns that fire infra-red beams, so there is no pain, paint or impact.

We cater for birthday parties for adults and children as well as group sessions and corporate bookings. We are based within a large fully enclosed wooded area at Parrs Wood High School in Didsbury.

We play in all weather conditions – sunny (hopefully!), rain, cold or even in the snow!


Adult and Children's Birthday Parties

We start children’s parties from 7 years old (6 year olds can play). We try and get at least one adult on each team as it is such great fun. Don’t worry, it is not obligatory but we are more than happy for parents to join in and they do not count in the numbers for the children’s places. Adults are also free. We always start with a Free For All mission to get used to the guns and then we start the team missions. The longer the session the more missions that we play. We play missions such as Team Deathmatch, Storm the Bunker, Take the High Ground and Hunt The Sniper.

We have a special mission for the birthday child(ren) that has an extra twist that will delight them. For adult parties we do additional more technical missions, such as Hunt the General, to see how tactically aware you are!

Battlefield Live is an adult game that kids can play

It is full of adventure, played in the great outdoors and is bags of fun. The guns are radio controlled and give lots of feedback, from the number of players you have hit, kill points, accuracy – and these are used in the missions.

We have an indoor food area where you can provide your own food or your food can be provided for you by local caterers – Subway Didsbury and Dominoes Didsbury.

We have changing rooms where the parents can take their own children in to change or adults can change/shower if they are going onto another venue afterwards.

What is it all about?

We play the game using electronic guns that fire infra-red beams. The beams are 100% safe to the eyes and body.

We have a great format to the games and missions.

As well as children and adult birthday parties, we cater for stag & hen do’s, group sessions and children’s activities groups. Voluntry organisations, such as the scouts, get a 10% discount on our prices.

What do you play the game in?

We are based inside a large wooded area at Parrs Wood High School. The entire area is completely enclosed with fences and walls so no children can run off. The Arena is full of trails, bushes, natural bunkers and trees, including rare redwood trees.

There are bunkers and massive fallen trees to hide behind and lots of interesting hideaways to discover. The Arena is right next to the Parrs wood High School’s Sports Centre, where there are toilets and changing rooms if things get a little muddy.

You get the kids to us – we’ll do the rest as stress free as possible

The boys really enjoyed the party, and I have already been asked by other parents for the website as they have sons pestering them to do the same party when it is their birthday. Great fun, well organised, well controlled. 
Much better than nerf parties as the boys felt they were playing with grown up equipment rather than toys.

Latest News

First of all thank you to our customers for persevering with us, we really do appreciate this – these have been very troubling times for everyone. Following the Government announcement we are able to reopen Battlefield Live and so we will be back open on the 11/12th July weekend and beyond.

There will be some changes in the way we operate but these are done to keep everyone safe and to follow the Government guidelines. These include providing a hand washing station before and after the activity, the guns to be sanitised more frequently, social distancing during briefings and a restriction of 16 kids per party. After three months away, we are very relieved to be providing birthday parties again and hope to see you whenever you are ready to book with us.
kind regards, nicky -redmox leisure
