Antwerp Mansion is coming back as a laser tag venue for over 14s
Battle Mansion? R u ok
Some comebacks are made to happen. When Britney Spears emerged from 2007, we rejoiced. When Lindsey Lohan made it out to the other side with a newfound faith and sobriety, the world was happy for her.
After closing a couple of months ago, Antwerp Mansion seemed to be gone for good. But it's having its very own comeback. In the form of "Battle Mansion".
The official Antwerp Mansion Facebook page announced earlier today that the venue would be reopened next weekend, as a laser quest?
They wrote: "While we continue to fight the council’s decision to restrict our club licence, Antwerp Mansion is not staying static – there have been rumours abound about what our next steps are ranging from the amusing to the absurd, and now you know…
"From the same team that made Manchester’s greatest sh*thole comes Battle Mansion, a revolutionary new concept in live action gaming and the UK’s first fully immersive laser combat system. Get ready for something different.
"The Mansion is back, but in a way you’ve never seen before…"
They also shared this video, which shows grown ups running around the old nightclub pretending to shoot each other and throw coke-can-grenades.
The Mansion has reinvented itself as Battle Mansion and it will host live-action gaming from Saturday the 28th April until Saturday the 12th May, with further dates to be confirmed.
It won't, however, be like the old the days of Antwerp, just with guns. Strictly no alcohol or drugs are allowed before taking part, due to health and safety reasons.
Another concern is that the venue is now restricted to over 14s, so kids could literally come here for their 14th birthday parties. Not quite the grungy rave venue we once knew and loved.
There are slots available every two hours from 10am-8pm, so there's no risk of missing your 9am lecture the next day!
Anyone who wants to revisit Fallowfield's favourite haunt to shoot your friends in the same place you actually almost died after taking too much K you can buy tickets on Skiddle here. Tickets cost £25 per 90 minute slot.
