We really like this Vintage Flying Experience near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
Calling all aspiring secret agents! This experience is an unmissable chance to learn real skills and techniques used by spies – from ex-surveillance officers themselves. Start in zone one with half an hour of code breaking, then take the laser room challenge. Work on those stealth skills and get to the target without setting off any laser alarms – a real test of agility. Next, learn to shoot from a distance with a sniper and air rifle session, then get closer with a secret agent pistol draw, and remember, speed is of the essence. Finally, brush up those fire lighting shelter building skills. Who’s got what it takes to be the next 007?
Saturdays and Sundays between March and November, at least three times a year.
Spy training will go ahead whatever the weather. Lots of the activities are outdoors, so if it’s raining you are going to get wet!
Lasts for around three hours.
Up to 72 children take part, split into three groups of 24.
Parents and friends are welcome to come along and watch the training. There are lots of chances to take photographs and video.
Training takes place indoors and outdoors, so dress for the weather on the day and wrap up warm in winter. Wear flat shoes – walking boots or trainers are perfect. Eye protection is provided where necessary. Changing facilities are available on site.
Suitable for girls and boys aged between 10 and 16. A parent or guardian is required to sign a disclaimer on the day (please be aware that no child can participate without completion) and remain on-site at all times.
A tuck shop sells soft drinks, crisps and snacks at nominal cost. Chargeable tea and coffee is also available for adults. Don’t worry, no live ammunition or weapons are used in any of the activities, to fully comply with current legislation.
