What is a Baseball Simulator?

About the Experience

What you do

The Activity

You have one job. Step into that cage and smash that ball as hard as you can!

The ball is thrown towards you from our pitching machine and you simply have to hit the ball as best you can! Our system does the rest...

What the technology does

The Game

The super-smart technology tracks the trajectory of the ball after it leaves the bat. It measures velocity, launch angle and a whole host of other metrics.

Your hit is then shown on the big-screens so you can see where the ball would have gone in a real baseball stadium.

Depending on what game is being played you can either score points or play a real game where you can be caught out by the fielders!

What Our Visitors Say About Us

I organised a surprise party at 1st Base and admittedly wasn't sure what to expect. The experience was unique, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the night was an absolute success. Highly recommended, ***** (5 stars)

John Lee

An awesome work night out! My work mates were really impressed I managed to find something that none of them even knew existed! If you're after something a bit different then give this a try. Far more fun than an escape room and for a cheaper price! GO HERE 🙂

Jess Mckay

I've never played Baseball in my entire life so I had no idea what to expect but the whole thing was awesome! It's so satisfying to hit the balls and the technology side of it is really impressive!

Jasmine Benwell
Hmmm but what about....

Still have questions?

Being the first venue of its kind in Europe, not many people have ever really seen a baseball simulator before.

So expectedly there are so many questions, such as:

  • Is there an age limit to who can participate?
  • I've only ever played rounders before. Is it difficult?
  • Is there parking available nearby?
  • How early before the session should I arrive?
