Tenpin’s Laser Tag is one of the better options for uni students location-wise. It’s roughly a six-minute drive away from the University of Nottingham’s University Park campus, next to the Showcase Cinema.
The fully interactive laser area offers two packages if booked online. Their weekday option is £30 for a team of six where players face other groups for a half-hour game. Alternatively, their weekend package can be up to £200, which works out cheap as groups as big as 30 can hire the entire arena for themselves – great for birthdays.
In the centre, prices are £5 per person for one game and £8 for two. The venue also hosts other fun activities like bowling, soft play, escape rooms and karaoke, if you still have some energy left over.

Next up is Laser Tag Nottingham, a great indoor laser tag arena in the heart of Nottingham’s city centre. The venue has the largest multi-level laser tag arena in the city, with strobe lights, music and swirling smoke to make the atmosphere as enjoyable as it can be.
They’re open to groups and individuals from age 8 to adults, again great for parties and socials. Each game lasts 20 minutes, with both team and solo games available (every player receives their own score sheet as well).
Their standard price is £6 per player, but they also have an amazing range of offers. For example, the best ones for students are their £5 tickets if you can show a college or university ID, and their two games for the price of one deal on Tuesdays.
We definitely recommend checking them out if you’re interested in their themed advanced games, like ‘Zombie Infection’, played on Wednesday and Sunday evenings from 7pm to 8pm.
