Harlow’s Hidden Gem



DESPITE being the largest laser tag in Britain, and having exciting plans for the future, The Q Entertainment Centre, Harlow, still finds that people do not know of their existence.


Centre Manager; Mandy Nickson, said:

‘Many people after walking in on a whim stated that they didn’t even realise the place was there, due to the advertising being out of the street eye view’.


She acknowledges that the main problem the centre is facing remains a lack of knowledge of its existence.


Mandy Nickson has been with Q Entertainment for 19 years, progressing all the way up from a cleaner to running the Harlow-based site. ‘I’ve been here for 19 years, it’s a very good, rewarding job.”


The crazy golf is one of several new additions for the centre, including ‘the Panic Room’, ‘the Tomb’ ‘Witch House’ and ‘Enigma’.


Laser Tag is the largest in the UK, boasting a 5000-sq./ft. arena, allowing up to 30 people to battle it out in unique game modes.


There are a range of deals, spanning children’s parties of all size, specific packages for adult parties and special occasions.


The Panic Room section includes four individually themed rooms, in which 2-8 people must solve puzzles and find clues to escape within the one-hour time limit.


The lobby area offers a large café, serving a variety of hot meals, snacks and drinks, plus specialties such as slush puppies and coffee. For adults looking for something stronger, the ‘Q Bar’ has a range of alcoholic drinks suited for parties and events.


These new developments point towards a new future for the centre, being a place for both children and adults alike.



Nonetheless, Facebook reviews show mainly positive reviews from locals.
