FAQ

WHAT ABOUT THE RULE OF SIX?

 

The government just published their list of exceptions to the “Rule of 6” and we’re glad to say that we fall under a pretty clear exemption:

 

There are exceptions where groups can be larger than 6 people. These include:

 

  • supervised activities provided for children, including wraparound care, youth groups and activities, and children’s playgroups"

We feel that anyone would be hard-pressed to argue that what we provide isn't a "supervised activity provided for children". There are also no restrictions in the guidance as where these activities can take place, the law treats private houses, private gardens, public parks and venues the same way, so running at a private home is fine as long as we follow the COVID-Secure guidelines.

 

We also see no reason that food could not be provided to the children during or towards the end of the activity. We are also happy to continue to supervise the activity for 30mins after the gaming, we can talk to the kids about the games they’ve just played while they have a slice of pizza.

You can see the full list of exemptions here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing#seeing-friends-and-family

 

What we can’t do.

 

  • We cannot be part of a larger social gathering, while the children's activity is clearly exempt any other social activities happening around that would most likely still be illegal.

  • Kids party actives for more than 12 guests. This isn’t illegal but we’ve made the decision to limit numbers so we can be confident that we can easily follow all the COVID Sercure guidelines

  • We can’t do party activities for people over the age of 18 as they’re clearly not “children” and it would therefore no longer be a “children’s activity”

 

HOW IT DOES IT ALL WORKS

 

We create clearly marked and colour coded gaming zones that keep each guest a safe 1m apart.

 

We have PS4's, Xbox One's, Wii U's and Nintendo Switches and a great range of the latest games for the kids to play.

 

Thanks to some really cool tech, we can then link all the screens together so anyone can play any game on any console with any of their friends without needing to leave their zone or touch any controller but their own and we'll have no more than two kids sharing one of our big 1080p gaming screens so they'll have plenty of space.

Since we need to be outside we would run all of this under a waterproof gazebo.

We're also able to have up to 7 people all playing Fortnite at one time.

WHAT IF IT RAINS

Our All-Weather Heated Tents are designed to keep everyone dry and warm even in the worst of weather. The tents large and well-ventelated so all there is plenty of room to social distance and plenty of fresh air moving throughout. We also have our Open-Air Gazebos for warm sunny days. We'll bring both on the day so you can decide which you prefer.

HOW MUCH SPACE DO WE NEED

We need about 4mx6m of outside space. We have long extension leads so we can be up to 50m from the house.

 

6 screen set up, linked up screen so they can play with their friends without needing to move around.

HOW WILL YOU KEEP EVERYONE COVID SAFE

Safety is our top priority and we’re taking every measure to make sure that we’re within all the guidelines:

 

  1. Our host will be wearing PPE (face shields and gloves) the whole time. 

  2. We will be disinfecting all the equipment before the kids come anywhere near it

  3. We have clearly marked and coloured zones for each kid making sure they are a safe distance from each other and the host. 

  4. We’ve even developed a system that allows the host to access all the equipment while being safely away form the kids so they can fix any issues or help the kids with the games while staying at a safe 1m distance.

  5. We also have a well thought out system for getting the kids to and from their gaming zones while maintaining a safe distance.

WHAT IF RESTRICTIONS CHANGE

 

If things change we’ll change with them. We want to give your guests the best possible experience we can with in the guidelines. As the regulations relax we will be constantly updating our experiences to make the most of those changes and we’ll let you know as soon as those options appear.
