Attraction Information

Bowhunter Archery offers a thrilling archery experience in a natural woodland setting. There’ll be life-sized 3D monster targets lurking amongst the trees. It doesn’t get any closer to the real thing than this!

To complete the experience you’ll have to shoot your way through 4 different zones, including Dragons, Dinosaurs and Creepy. Planning to play in a larger group? Bowhunter Archery also has a special Combat Archery Arena for bigger groups. All equipment is included, so all you have to do is turn up.

Young archers will get trained to use the bow by qualified GB Archery Instructors. You’ll see how the more your kids practice, the more their confidence will grow. By the end of the experience, you’ll leave feeling like Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men!
