Any wheelchair using guests wishing to play laser tag, are advised they will have full access to ground floor level of the arena via a lower ground disabled entrance door. You and your guests will be briefed in together, on the lower floor.
Guests with visual impairments may find the darkness of the arena challenging, so are advised to look inside before purchasing your ticket. We would advise a chaperone to assist you through the arena. Please note there are numerous strobe and flashing lights in the arena, if you suffer from epilepsy you will not be permitted to play. Some guests might find the lighting disorientating. Guests with any disability are welcome to bring a non-playing, non-paying guest with you to assist you in the arena. Wheelchair users will be briefed with their guests in a downstairs area and escorted into the ground floor playing space via the lower ground entrance door. Access to this is via a small ramp with handrails. Wheelchair users are restricted to the ground floor playing space. Our RISK ASSESSMENT is available to any organisation looking to visit Darkstar Laser on request, also, we will be happy for you to do a site visit and assist you with your own risk assessment, prior to visit.
