The Go Wild Kids’ Zone

Welcome to the all-new Kids’ Zone at The Game Fair® 2019, with loads to keep the young entertained and amused throughout the weekend. From zip lines to catapults, mazes to a vintage funfair, there’s something for everyone and every age!


Have-a-Go: £2 for 7 shots, £5 for 25 shots or Gong-Ding prize entry

‘Make & Take’: £20 for materials and 25 shots

Children and adults alike can have-a-go at shooting a catapult on Slingshot World Magazine’s Catapult Range. Catapults are provided and adults are able to to try out a full tournament grade 10m super-range model! There’s even a daily cash prize available for the most consecutive ‘gong dings’. Youngsters can also ‘make and take’ by assembling a WASP Uniphoxx catapult, with long-lasting skinny tube bands and plastic ammo, and then shooting it on the junior range.


Should you go left or should you go right? Who doesn’t enjoy the challenge of finding their way through a maze? Just don’t get lost! And if you want to scale some heights, our pyramid is perfect for children wanting to let off some steam. All free of charge.


Calling all off-road explorers! Children can get behind the wheel of a mini Land Rover and practise their 4×4 skills by navigating our outdoor track. Very young children can sit as passengers alongside older children or adult drivers.
