Battle Royale - Sword Combat
Minimum 2 to run the session, Max 4 per group (at this point in time).
You will be provided body armor, protective gloves, and a full face mask.
Once you are ready, you will receive some general sword training before battling it out with our single sword, double swords, sword, and shield, as well as sword and axes.. oh yes.. we've got it all!..
Bring out your inner warrior!
Please note that this is a full LARP combat activity, so please bring some extra layers as there are gaps in the body armor that can be hit. The body armor is designed to give you more mobility during the session, so the joints are exposed in some areas. We do not allow full contact (punching, kicking, grappling).
What to Expect
The activity lasts around 1.5 hours. You will be required to sign an online disclaimer. You will be given a quick intro and safety briefing before getting to the fun part! This is for 18 years + only due to the current sizing of our armor, glove and helmet.
This activity is very active (like Battle Archery), so please make sure your fitness level is ok before participating
What is LARP Combat?
LARP Combat or Live-Action Role-playing Combat is using foam weapons in an activity. The general rules we follow have been adapted to our session to ensure participants are safe when engaged with the activity. For example, no head strikes or you will be disqualified, No stabbing actions as the weapons have a glass-fibre core which could bruises and serious injury to the other participant.
LARP is a type of role-playing game in which participants physically act out scenarios, typically using costumes and props. Please note that this is not HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). We do not allow full contact (punching, kicking, grappling).
Please see the calendar availability and book online.
Max group size is 4. minimum group size 2 for us to run the session.
What should I wear?
Please wear footwear suitable for the outdoors, you may get muddy. Wear something comfortable and loose enough to allow for a full range of movement. Something you do not mind getting dirty. Bring extra layers for additional padding as this is a full-contact LARP activity.
Wear a face mask if you wish, bring alcohol gel and a change of clothes.
Please do not wear anything you could lose during the session e.g. rings, ear rings, expensive watches etc.

We have a 2 day cancellation policy.
We reserve the right to cancel the session due to inclement weather, however conditions would have to be pretty extreme for this to happen.
If using vouchers, we will only reschedule the session if we have been given advance warning of up to 48 hours, unless the voucher has not been redeemed or is past its expiry date. If cancelled on the day, I'm afraid you will lose your activity slot.
Do you allow alcohol?
We allow alcohol on site, but this is not for consumption whilst you are participating in the activities. We will not allow anyone to participate if they are under the influence as this is dangerous and a health and safety risk.
Avon Valley toilet facilities inside the park are now open to the public.
