Wow, what a week we've had here at Laser Mayhem! Our first official run of Fortnite themed events was a huge success with hundreds upon hundreds of children in attendance, beating all expectations and becoming one of our most popular scenario events to date!
The session was fully-booked within days, additional sessions were added on numerous occasions to try and accommodate the sheer influx of participants and we were still forced to turn people away due to its popularity. Many players left the field, at the end of the day, to book for our dates later in the year, with sessions reaching capacity before they were even officially announced.
The children got to experience huge fields, supply crates, loot drops and the ever looming presence of the storm (including one real one) on our Fortnite replica fields but no adverse weather conditions held back our dedicated marshalling team from providing the experience every child dreamt of.
With lots of laughter, dancing and combat all the children left Mayhem with big smiles on their faces; even John Wick had a blast teaching the children on how to earn that ever illusive Victory Royale!
Here's what some of our participants had to say about the event:
'So this review comes from my two boys who enjoyed the Fortnite laser tag session today, here is what they thought of it.
"It was really really good," & "it was the best thing ever"
The guy, Kieran, who looked after my boys team today was absolutely amazing. Everyone seemed very friendly, really good with the children and really well done. It's clear they have a passion for entertaining the children and our children plan on being back again soon.
The only incident was a child cheating (hiding his sensors) but when the marshal became aware he dealt with it kindly and professionally.
Facilities, were good, little shop, vending machines, the venue was massive and much bigger than expected.
Value for monaey was brilliant and definitely worth the small charge for the sessions.
Thank you for a wonderful day from my boys, Theo & Gabriel'
'Absolutely brilliant day at the Fortnite themed Laser Event- I had a great laugh and I wasn’t even playing! It’s rare to find a busy event that’s so well organised. Big thanks to the two lovely Alex’s and Kieran for making the day a great one.'
'What a great place, staff were fab especially getting into the ‘fortnite’ theme! Boys had the best time!'
A huge Mayhem thank you to everyone who came down and experienced it with us, come rain or shine, we're always happy to see so many familiar faces and a fair few new ones! And a massive thank you to the Marshalling team who made this all happen.
Sessions in July and August are already starting to book up fast, so come and experience the Fortnite Mayhem for yourself!
