Crossbow Shooting

Fun, On Point

Come and Experience Crossbow Shooting

You've seen them in films, and now you can use your very own crossbow in real life here at Live for Today, Yorkshire’s most popular and highly rated outdoor activity centre. The best way to describe our crossbows activity is to say it’s like a mix of two other of our popular activity sessions – Air Rifle Shooting and Archery.

Easier to handle than you might think and strikingly accurate, we will have you shooting your crossbow safely, comfortably and with pro-like precision in no time. Our highly qualified instructors love entertaining visitors of all abilities, from complete beginners wanting to try a cool new activity to those a little more experienced who want to hone their shooting skills.  Our crossbows sessions are certainly challenging (in a good way) but they are also 100% guaranteed super fun.

During your crossbows session, you will have plenty of shots to practice your new skill and to gain mastery of your very own crossbow. As you develop and improve, completely at your own level, your instructor will start to introduce you to a variety of fun-filled games and challenges, including Killer, Shoot the Stag, and the ever popular Destroy the Zombies. NB – only headshots count in this particular challenge!

The brilliant thing about crossbows is that they can be easily manoeuvred to allow you to shoot at a variety of different targets in the most powerful and accurate ways.

Trust us, you’ll surprise yourself at just how much fun you’ll have.

What To Expect on the Day

After booking your crossbow experience, you will receive a confirmation email with all the details on how to find us and where to park. We have plenty of free parking onsite.

We ask that you arrive around 15 minutes before your session. On arrival you’ll be asked to fill out a quick disclaimer and then be introduced to your instructor. They’ll give you a quick brief on what to expect and how the session will run.

It’s then time to head to the crossbow range where your professional instructor will show you how to safely handle, load and shoot our crossbows.

On the range we have a variety of targets including your classic round targets, dart targets, Zombie Targets and even Zombie Heads!!! We can’t explain the satisfaction you feel after hitting one of the zombie heads full on.

As with all our ranges, we have a variety of fun and exciting games to crown you or your friend the Zombie Hunter.

Something different for a day out with the loved one Loved the air rifle shooting but found out that the other half is a deadly sniper. Quad biking was a good experience the seesaw was much funner than the limbo. The most enthusiastic instructor award has gotta go to Sam thanks for the day out!

Extreme Quad biking I booked this experience for my partner birthday an when he was let down by his friends I had to step in but was extremely frightened as I haven't done quad biking before. Daz our instructor was great at reassuring me an ensuring I knew how to operate the bike. Daz was extremely patient and very reassuring with me. When Daz could see I was comfortable on the bike an had my bearings he pushed our skills to the next level making the course fun and exciting. It was by far one the best experiences I have had, I pulled up at the end with such an adrenaline rush wanting to do the course again. Thanks Daz for making our experience exciting and safe we be back.
