Published on: 04/09/21

It’s getting to the end of the summer holidays, boo! But that doesn’t have to mean the fun has to stop. In fact, as kids return to school, it’s even more important to have great places in your arsenal, for weekends, rewards, parties, family catch-ups, or just running off after-school energy.

Research has shown that a balance of physical activity helps with children’s mental health and improved concentration, happiness and learning at school. But forget the boffins; kids or adults alike, we want to visit places like Bunker 51 because it’s so much fun!

Bunker 51, Sounds Intriguing…

It certainly is! Bunker 51 is a paintball, laser tag and airsoft arena in Greenwich, London. Themed as a military bunker, this immersive and indoor arena is the first of its kind in the UK. Conceived and developed by the creators of The Hangar at The O2 Arena and Star Command at Trocadero, Piccadilly Circus, it’s these epic game experts’ most immersive and intense attraction yet.

Situated right by the Thames, Bunker 51 has several hundred feet of themed playing fields. Likened to “a video game come to life”, you’ll join an elite special force team, receive your mission, gear up with the most technologically advanced equipment, and enter into the adventure of your lives.

Whichever activity you pick, games can hold up to fifty people at a time, so kids will never be short of anyone to play with; they can even take on their entire school class if they want to!
