    Weekend walkon with own gear.
    This was my first time at Special Ops Adventure Center, and I will definately be going back. The site has ampel parking for everyone with just a short walk to where you kit out and prepare your gear. There is loads of room here for this, with a decent shop where you can buy drinks, coffee, minerals etc sweets, choclate and very importantly, bbs and gass. There is even the facility to order in pizza for lunch. The day out is well planned with 4 to 5 games during the day, and even if you havent played airsoft before the game rules are well explained by the very friendly staff. There is a goid facility to provide rental gear here however I did not avail of this. The games are played in a wooded area that is well maintained and safe. It is a great day out for groups, familys and friends of all ages and I would recommend to everyone. I would give Special Ops 9 out of 10, deducting 1 point because of the toilet facilities. I think a place like this would require something more permanent than a few portaloos.

    Great day out from the start to the end what a day !!! Everyone from ages 13-60 absolutely loved it
    What a day !! At the start we were very nervous as a lot of the players appeared to regular gamers and completely kitted out !! but how welcoming and friendly everyone was brilliant . We have already booked our this days outing 10/10 experience well worth a visit . Suitable for all ages & staff while strict were great fun especially the 2 girls that guided us around .

    Action packed, with zero risk
    The staff were great, very helpful and informative. The marshals were very good, very funny and gave great concise instructions. The safety brief was very reassuring, she layed out clearly what was allowed and what wasnt amd pit my mind at ease. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

    Great place, definitely going back soon
    Deleted my last one due to it lacking detail. Last time I went was I think about 6 months ago, don't renemeber it too well, but I renember I had a great and pleasant time there. The refs were nice and kind and the place was just really nice and big. Today we went again. Although there was not many people, we still managed to enjoy our experience there. The Marshalls were really nice and understanding. We ended up paying for the 'Premium' one which we got a vest spare ammo, and a better gun. The gun was really good, it felt really nice and the quality of it was excellent. I loved the place and will definitely be going back to visit again whenever I can.

    Excellent, my son loves the place!!
    My son has recently begun his ‘adventure’ with Special Ops, he has always loved BB guns but now has a place to go to play in a safe environment and with others who love them too. The staff have been so helpful, accommodating I couldn’t fault them. My son has been there 3 times in the last few weeks and is having an absolute blast. So glad we joined up to the Gold Membership as my son will definitely get a lot of use out of it. He’s outdoors all day long, doing what he loves in a safe environment it’s perfect

    5 star experience
    This was my early teen's second visit with his friends in the space of a month. Whereas I'm not a huge fan of war games and guns, I can highly recommend this place for a fun, well organised outing with lots of activity. On both occasions the staff went out of their way to make us as parents feel that our children were safe and looked after, as well as making a younger child who wasn't booked in feel included by allowing them a quick supervised use with the gun. Even in the teeming rain over this weekend, the children had a blast, not one bit bothered with the wet and cold...and I was able to take refuge in a small hut by a warm fire with a coffee while the children were entertained. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough on all fronts. Loads of adults having fun too!

    Great for a stag party!
    Highly recommend for a great airsoft experience! We went down with 16 guys as part of a Stag, all quite inexperienced with airsoft but we were quickly brought up to speed by the great staff. Fair play and safety is taken seriously. The experienced players are very welcoming of newbies. Best part was the end, when we were allowed to perform a firing squad on our Stag and Best Man!

    Superb
    Amazing. An end of season tour with our u13 rugby team. 24 kids and 6 coaches. 10 out of 10 from everyone. Paddy and his team were top class. We spent the afternoon there and kids were asking for a full day next time out. Very well managed from start to finish so well impressed and a brilliant team bonding experience for our group. Thank u and we’ll be back 😎👍

Went up to Special Ops last Saturday with my Godson & my friend. It was an absolute great day, Special Ops had put extra buildings & areas for us to get to know & it was brilliant. What a great day out, i have to say the Marshalls were excellent in keeping us going & the gameplay was spot on. Can't wait to go back again..😎👍

Had a great first time at Spec Ops! Highly recommend, the staff are helpful, and the rental equipment is just what you need without investing in the hobby. People are helpful and I went solo first time. A bit apprehensive going solo, but easily made friends for the day. Highly recommended, and will be back!

Very well organised. Plenty of staff to help out with questions. Tools for any last minute fixes. Strict on times and cut offs for crono and games. Rules clear as day. Any accusations of cheating and no hit taking is taken seriously. They do checks through out the day to ensure everyone plays fair. Game types vary, east 5-10 minute break between them to reload. Snacks and drinks available in their shop along with some other airsoft gear you may need. I'd highly recommend this site. I had a blast with my friends.
