Megazone Laser Tag Parties

These take place in Megazone Derby, which is part of Willows Sports Centre.

If you’ve not had a go at Megazone before, it’s a futuristic playing arena filled with lighting effects and artificial smoke. Each player wears a state of the art vest equipped with targets and a laser gun, and people work in teams to try and shoot the opposition and score points.

It’s suitable for children aged 6 and upwards – but parents are very welcome too! – and is an ideal place to hold an exciting, activity based birthday party.

We provide invitations, food, drink and party bags, but you are welcome to bring along any extras.
