Battle Zone Archery

Battle Zone Archery is the next big thing in combat sports. Combining the mayhem and exhilaration of paintball with the fun of dodgeball, and requiring the skills of archery, this is a really exciting experience. Have your very own Hunger Games!

Two teams are pitted against each other across a purpose built field layout with a referee. Each team has up to 5 specially designed bunkers, 5 target cones are placed in front of each bunker. If you get hit by an opponent's arrow you're out, unless a team mate catches an arrow headed for them, in which case you can be resurrected. Points are awarded for each eliminated player and for hitting the cones. The layouts and game scenarios are switched around, and a range of barriers strategically placed across the area of play as part of each battle. The session lasts an hour and in that time you'll play several games, such as Battle Zone, Archery Dodge, Last man standing and the Kamikaze run.

All equipment is provided, included a protective face helmet. The bows are easy to use, and the arrows are designed to absorb the impact meaning the whole experience is less painful and messy than paintball, but just as competitive and just as much fun!

With a location close to the centre of Edinburgh, Battle Zone Archery is a great addition to your weekend away. With no need for an expensive and time consuming transfer to an out of town paintball field, you can easily fit this in alongside other things that you can do in the same place, such as Bubble Football, Binocular Football or an Old School Sports Day.

Was football ever more crazy than this - playing in binoculars so that you can't tell how far away the ball and the other players are? We don't thinks so, and if you try binocular football while you're in Edinburgh, we're sure you'll come to agree. The laughs begin the moment you put the binoculars on. You'll be hesitant to move in case you collide with players who are actually miles away and more often than not you'll be kicking at air because the ball isn't anywhere near where you think it is. Binocular football is surely one of the craziest games out there, so if you're looking for laughs you have to try it.

Escape Rooms

You get an hour of play time in which you need to manipulate objects to find clues and solve the puzzles. If you work everything out before the time runs out, you escape the room and win the game.

In professional competition, the weights vary from around 265 pounds per hand to almost 400 pounds per hand!

River Bugging

River Bugs are the latest things to hit the UK shores from the adventure islands called New Zealand. River Bugging is a unique way of heading down white water, it's a bit like an extreme version of a Lilo but instead of chilling out on the sea you're heading down drops, past rocks in fast flowing water. You steer the bugs using your hands and feet, you'll have flippers on you're feet and webbed cloves on you're hands.
The River Bug has been put through its paces in NZ and now these things, that look like hi-tech blow up armchairs, are here in the UK to stay. A great way to play on the river if you want that little bit more excitement.

River Bugs are ideal for summer river levels so you don't have to wait for the rain and the big water to gain the thrills of the outdoors!!

After receiving expert instruction from some of the most experienced Bug exponents in the world, what could be more fun than negotiating your own path down the rapids.

You will find some serious entertainment in both halves of the city from the best comedy nights to sexy lap dancing bars and of course a club scene which doesn’t disappoint. If you’re not sure where to start, and that’s easy to understand as there is so much to do in Edinburgh, then a guided bar crawl will ensure you and the lads only end up at the best bars and most exclusive venues to the city has to offer.
