Archery Tag & Shooting range

The hunger games have started. Tension, active and challenging.

Archery Shoot Out, this year’s Outdoor Game, archery at each other.

A mix of Conquer the flag, paintball and archery. Armed with bow and arrow and a tough face mask, you dodge the arrows of your opponent in the Archery field.

You wear a tough mask and there are hiding places in the course so that you will not be hit quickly. Finally shoot at your friends, do you dare?

You compete in teams during this activity. The Archery Shoot Out lasts 1.5 hours (starts at 16.30) and is supervised by our enthusiastic outdoor specialist. Archery Shoot Out is the painless version of paintball. The arrows have a soft point and you shoot relentlessly at each other!
