Your experience starts with a full briefing before you split into groups to learn how to fire automatic pistols and sniper rifles. Next try your hand at axe-throwing, unarmed combat and escape techniques. Learn how to conceal covert surveillance cameras, transmitting bugs and listening devices, then take part in a shoot-out and learn contact drills using a high-tech laser combat system. All instructors are highly experienced in carrying out surveillance operations, and will be on hand throughout. Please be aware that no live ammunition or weapons are used in any of the activities, in order to fully comply with current legislation. The full range of equipment used includes a combination of airsoft, air rifles, replica and laser guns.

Professional staff, and activities such shooting guns a lot of fun!
Just great fun and good to interact with the others there. FUN FUN FUN !!!!!
Well organised day with no 'flaffing about'. The instructors were cheerful and positive, explaining clearly and making it all fun.
A fun and interesting day with plenty of activities. Best bit had to be the sniper shooting! All the instructors were friendly and helpful. Well worth the money and would happily go back again.
Bought this for my husband who really enjoyed the day. Staff are all excellent. All in all a highly recommended day.
This was a great morning's entertainment and the chance to do something really different on a Saturday. I see a great future for myself as a sniper! My only comment is that it would have really finished the day off a treat if we'd been given a Spy Academy certificate to take home.
Thank you for a great day. What I didn't understand was that there was only one or two other women taking part in the Spy Academy, all the others were partners who came to watch. What is wrong with women in England ... why on earth would you prefer to watch! How fantastic to dive through holly bushes, playing with guns etc.
After a quick brief I was straight into the action throwing axes and shooting guns. It was great fun and everyone was taught the skills of a spy! A great day for any one old or young.
The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The day was well organised and ran to time. All events were good fun for people of all ages and abilities.
Great day, really really good fun. The instructors were fantastic, and it was a really great range of activities to take part in. I'd really recommend this!
