    Great experience
    Fun experience, great instructor. The games were fun and we could play games with 6 people at the same time. We were a little early, so they started instructions early, so we could spend the full hour playing

    Brilliant
    Our 2 grandsons aged 12 & 10 had a fantastic time at their session this morning and we had great fun watching them! They are already planning to have their next birthday parties there. The instructor was very friendly and totally in-tune with what the boys wanted.

    Great taster experience
    Quick impromptu trip to Llanishen leisure centre today for the mini taster experience. Unable to book on the day via the website but called the customer service number and was able to book a slot for an hour later. Hosted by Adam my son (9 y/o) had a great time trying out a couple of the games. We were really impressed by the quality of the experience, location and equipment. Adam was really friendly and was great with my son who has sensory issues and can struggle to listen to instructions when experiencing new things! Worked great wearing glasses. Overall a brilliant experience and we will certainly be back for more.

    Gamers paradise!
    Wow what a fab experience. Rhian was fantastic throughout. She gave instructions and constantly encouraged you with every game. The room is really cool too. My 15 and 9 year old loved it. I would recommend this to anyone, sooooo much fun!!!

    Awesome!
    Went to the experience in Cardiff and it was truly excellent. I actually screamed when I realised a zombie had crept up behind me and was trying to eat my head 😂. Kids loved it (14 and 11) almost as much as I did (me being 40!). It's a bit expensive for the time but very enjoyable.

    👌 👏 👍 😍 💖 🆒️
    I really really enjoyed that. We had a really nice lady called Chanel who helped us out. Here's to her. My favourite game is probably that Death Squad game. I went with my friend and my dad along with my friend's dad. Ten out of ten definitely would recommend! MJS, Ten years old, 14:15, 2023. 🌟 🤩 ⭐️ 🌠 💫

    Really fun!
    Such a fun experience, booked for my son's 11th birthday with his mates but my husband and I ended up joining in. Really funny. Only issue I had is that it's difficult to get hold of the company by phone, but the lady who was there on the day was great 👍

    12 year old birthday
    My son had his 12th birthday party at Active Reality Cardiff. The staff were so friendly and great with the kids. They had a brilliant time and really enjoyed all the games. I wish we'd have booked for 2 hours! Thanks so much.

    Great fun, great value - will be returning
    We all had such a fun afternoon at Active Reality. We brought this fire a birthday present and weren’t disappointed. We went for an hour long session and played on a variety of levels. The lady who ran the session was brilliant too and gave us tips and advice and made it a really fun time.

    Brilliant experience
    This was my first experience with VR and I was a bit nervous, but the young lady with dark hair running it was absolutely fab! She explained everything really clearly and put me at ease. She was really polite and answered all of our questions. The games she selected for us (Zombie shooter, kitchen experience and PvP battle) in our 30 minute session were absolutely brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely be coming back with friends! Overall, a 5* experience.

Great fun! Absolutely would recommend to friends. Have recommended to my work for next team building activity. Worth the money. Adam was knowledgable, patient and fun.

Adam did a great job of entertaining our group of 11 year olds. They absolutely loved it. The zombie game went down particularly well but I think our group's karaoke skills could use some work so we'll have to come back. Would recommend!

Lots of fun for all ages. Our instructor was great and especially supportive when my son was struggling with one of the games.

Amazing birthday present for my son and 5 friends. Really recommend it for a group of 11 yr olds, they had a great time and the guy running it was really helpful and explained it all.

Good fun, and a novel concept. Turning a squash court into a VR room is an obvious idea, it's the right size and shape, and no-one really plays squash any more.
We played two games, both good fun but perhaps not as challenging (for the escape room) or as scary (for the zombie shoot 'em up) and I was expecting. The latter was probably for the best as I'm an incompetent boob at most video games.
We went as a pair, it's something that would be better in a group of 4-6, but it's still fine with fewer.
Cost-wise it's the same whether you go in a pair or a group of six, so you get a better price for more people (per person).
The game master was a good laugh, enthusiastic enough but also had enough perspective that we could have the kind of conversations adults have rather than him being stuck in the kind of way of running things that best suit sweaty young teens full of sugar and memes. A good guy.

I would recommend going at least once, and there is enough on offer to justify subsequent visits without repetition.
