The area that the laser combat took place was well constructed and this encouraged a need for well planned use of tactics. However, the lack of the ability to run hindered the fun slightly.

Hi Paula, thanks for your feedback. In any forest area there are going to be potential hidden rocks and slippery roots that people dont see. We restrict running to try and prevent unnecessary injuries but hope that it doesnt hinder the fun too much!
