LOTS OF INTERESTING THINGS PACKED INTO THE EASTER BREAK

So much has happened in the last two weeks:-

MINIATURE HORSES

The Falabellas #followthefalabellas from Marros Riding Stables came here for a visit.  We were second on their list of attractions to visit in Pembrokeshire (Folly Farm was the first stop).   One of the little cuties, I think it was Marlowe, took a liking to our cam netting and was caught nibbling at it and trying to pull if off a post. lol.  They were so sweet and a great hit with our customers.

TEAM BUILDING

We had the Abergavenny Under 13’s Rugby Team here for some team building.  They were a great bunch and some excellent team bonding took place.  Here is a video review from their coach

OUR NEW AREA

On the 12th April our staff underwent intensive training by A Squadron (Specialist military, security and survival training & instruction) for our new CQB area.  Our £25k CQB (close quarters battle) area, which we have been working on for 12 months, will be open soon. This will be for older players (min age 14) and will be very exciting and will also be great fun.

The area has been tactically designed by a Hostile Environment Close Protection operative and set designed by a head set designer of Torchwood and Dr Who.

Definition of CQB –

“CQB consists of small units or teams which engage with the enemy with personal weapons at very short range, up to 30 meters. In the typical close quarters combat scenario, the attackers try a very fast takeover of a vehicle or structure controlled by the defenders, who usually have no easy way to withdraw. Because enemies, hostages/civilians, and fellow operators can be closely intermingled, close quarters combat demands a rapid assault and a precise application of lethal force. The operators need great proficiency with their weapons, and the ability to make split-second decisions in order to minimise accidental casualties”

We look forward to welcoming old and new customers for this experience.

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

Thanks to local (and not so local) word of mouth I think most people are aware now that we run regular zombie events.  They are terrifying, but there are so many of us who want to be terrified whilst having a load of fun lol.   These are for the over 13’s only and rather than try and tell you what they involve I have posted below some reviews – enjoy!

“Epic!!!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 8 April 2014 So I returned to battlefield Live http://bit.ly/1e5R14f again for another EPIC/AMAZING/WOWZA Zombie Apocalypse with my Youth Group on Saturday April 5th – Luckily it was still light and as we had been before it wasn’t as scary – HAH who am I kidding – we were TERRIFIED! This time we were fighting for survival against another surviving group – and had to dominate certain survival kit – harder than it sounds – especially when you are running away from the two stray Zombies that were roaming around!

When your 20 lives are gone – you had to re-spawn – IN THE GATES OF HELL! The first time I had to re-spawn I had to have some of my youth group go with me – it was very very nerve racking – especially when you are then chased by two child zombies! And when the gates of hell are opened — still gives me chills seeing all these zombies come sprawling out! RUUUUUN!

All in all the event was again AMAZING- everyone came away with smiles on their faces and filled with adrenaline! The staff make you feel at ease, they guide you when you’re stuck, and if you were too scared (I wasn’t, promise) they took you around the gates of hell. 

I cannot recommend BFL enough – a family outing, a stag/hen do, Youth group, girls vs boys – whatever, make sure you get yourself booked in for a thrilling and scary event!

We will be seeing you soon BFL!  Kate from Point Young Persons Trust, Fishguard

A review from another ‘survivor’ who also happens to have a blogspot
So now that it’s term time again we have a bit of space to get geared up for the forthcoming Summer.  Looking forward to it.
