A boozy battle to save planet earth!

Feeling competitive? Grab your crew and head down to our alien invasion training centre to learn how to grapple with some intergalactic JERKS using only a laser gun and a bevvy.

Join the training centre (Digbeth branch) and get thrown in at the deep end, preparing to save the world from an impending alien invasion.

You’re out for a few beers one day when your phone starts going mad – everyone’s in a spin about the apocalypse, the end of days, THE ALIENS ARE COMING!​

Suddenly, a huge van squeals round the corner and pulls up in front of you – before you know what’s happening, someone’s yanking you and your mates inside and telling you you’re the planet’s last hope. You must come down to their secret training camp (in Digbeth) and learn how to exterminate the aliens for good – using nothing but a laser gun.​

Life comes at you fast, huh?​

No time for panicking – get the laser pack, grab a Hooch, and save this fucking place before it’s too late.


What’s an adults-only Laser Quest without a few cocktails? Give one a try between games, they’re absolutely out of this world.
