David From Scotland – “After arriving at Splat! HQ, Pete and James relieved any apprehension I had. The guys were professional and the session was easy-going and a lot of fun. The quality and quantity of gunge is superb and my first experience of being in a gunge tank is something I’ll never forget. I’d absolutely recommend the experience to any fan and look forward to making a return visit in the future.”

Steve from Yorkshire – “Having viewed the Splat pages for 15 years (can you believe its 15 years of Splat handing out the gungings!) I noticed David had experienced a private session in that famous Splat gunge tank. The thought of sitting in there where models have come and gone and been slimed was too good an opportunity to miss and great you can experience a gunging in a tank in private like this. Pete is fabulous in the communication leading up to organising this and a great guy on the day, making sure everything is perfect and ensuring you are OK with everything. The build up sitting at the side of the tank, then the moment he tells you to step inside is out of this world… sitting there chatting, occasional drips of the goo above hitting your head, then when the trigger is pulled, gallons of the gunky stuff absolutely cover you. I opted by the bronze package which is just one gunging, this experience was awesome and out of this world, my only regret now is not taking the other packages and repeating this over again. I’ll be back for more. This was something off the bucket list, so if you have ever wondered what it is like, get booked now, and you will not be disappointed. Thanks again to Pete the host, a superb guy, sent the video and some pics so soon after, and I urge any gunge fans to give this a go.”

Neil From London -“I had a great time with the guys of Splat! for a private experience; five separate gungings, sometimes my own clothes, sometimes the well-worn famous clothes from the shows too.  Lots of humour and laughter and LOTS of gunge.  Time flew by and I’ve never had so many showers in such a short space of time!  I recommend it to any guys who have enjoyed the shows…..”

Richard From Yorkshire: “I have seen a few of the Splatette shows & have really enjoyed them, so the opportunity to experience the show for myself was something that was really appealing.

I opted for the Full Gameshow, followed by the Splat Storm after,

It was such a great experience being able to sit inside the tank & experience what so many others have before. This included the famous outfits that have become popular on the show, the countless wrong answers leading to a messy ending & then finally get the vast amount of gunge dropped on you from the tank above.

The colours of the gunge were fantastic.

After experiencing the countless sprayings & throwings of gunge as part of the quizzes & the inevitable tanking at the end of each round it was the end of the show.

Now onto the part I was looking forward to the most, the Splat Storm. There are no other words to say that what an amazing experience this was. To sit there & face a complete onslaught of gunge is something I would crave for each & everyday. If it was possible to have this happen each day then I would happily take a seat in the tank & face it.

To anyone who is contemplating having a session & are not sure what to expect, I would highly recommend that you take the opportunity at this as you won’t be disappointed.”

Paul From Essex: “Thanks for the experience yesterday, it was a great afternoon! And thanks for all the work you put into it. It was a top notch job! I will certainly be back, you guys really are the best around BY FAR!”

Kristian From England: “I decided to take the plunge for my first gunging experience with the Splat! crew, given the great shows they’ve made in the past and their great reputation for good quality gunge and games. I went for the full on Gold experience, with five gungings and the final Splat! storm. Although I was a little nervous on the way, Pete and James were very welcoming and I felt very at ease, and the hours just flew by. I didn’t opt for filming, so it meant they could be a bit more forthcoming with the messy chaos, and needless to say after all the gungings and the Splat! storm it took a while to get the gunge out of my hair! I absolutely reccommend all gunge fans to book one of Splat!’s packages.” 

Andy From The Midlands: “I went for the Gold package and it was a great choice. Although a “gunger” with some experience, I had to admit to being a little nervous, finally seeing SplatHQ from the other side (inside the tank!). Pete was great and quickly made me feel at home in the tank with a welcome interview and a nice warm gunging in a Splat T-Shirt and some shorts to kick things off. 

A variety of fun games and quizzes followed, most of which, of course, I lost, being gunged in various ”Splat wear”, Including singlets, trunks and the very recognisable “scuba suit” which was very ruthlessly pied when I got wrong answers and gunked with red gunge when the tank was unleashed! I found I wasn’t too bad at the general knowledge and actually won one game; you can guess what my prize was!

Pete worked hard preparing massive amounts of gunge and to say I was well covered every time barely describes it! Then there was the very awesome Splat Storm, and let me tell you, storm is an accurate description! The most intense, relentless deluge I have ever known, well worth it if you are considering the Gold option.“

David From London: “From start to finish I had an amazing experience with the guys at SplatHQ. Everything was personalised for me with more gunge than I ever imagined, great games and quite a few surprises. The Splat Storm was magnificent and definitely worth going for, there was no escape!”

Rich From South East:“My Splat private session was amazing. I did the gold package and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
 
Although I’ve been into gunge for years, I’ve never fully embraced or accepted it, limiting myself to small-scale, solo, messy experiences in private, always with a feeling of guilt and shame afterwards. It took me weeks to pluck up the courage to email Splat to enquire about a booking, and in a mad moment I booked it up. I regretted it almost immediately and felt so nervous and anxious I just put it out of my mind until it finally came round.
 
On the day itself I felt strangely calm about it and once I arrived Pete was so welcoming and friendly I felt completely at ease. Even just having a normal face to face conversation about gunge for the first time in my life was amazing and Pete really has seen it all and heard it all, so makes everything feel totally acceptable (even normal), which meant that my usual guilt and shame just disappeared, leaving me free for the first time in my life to embrace the mess with pure enjoyment and excitement. 
 
The session was a massive thing for me – first time with natrosol, first time in a gunge tank, first time being messed up by somebody else – and it was unbelievably good fun. I also was able to bring my own footy, rugby and kits to wear in the tank (although all the familiar splat show outfits were made available for me too if I wanted). Getting thoroughly gunged in my own kit felt amazing and the sheer scale of the gungings were truly epic – like nothing I’ve ever experienced before: several tankings, pies in the face, gunge blasters and even buckets of gunge thrown over me – it was heaven!
 
As a solo gunger it would be impossible to recreate the splat experience at home, so I wholly recommend it to anybody who is considering it. If you’re a nervous, embarassed, closeted fan like me, please, please be brave and book it up. I promise you will have the time of your life and no regrets. If you’re already a more experienced gunger then a splat private session is a great opportunity to experience a gunge tank and vast quantities of gunge with no prep or cleanup to do. Even if you’re just curious and want a gunge tank experience to tick off the bucket list, then a splat private session is a great way to achieve that. To anybody reading these testimonials, wherever you are on your gunge journey, I urge you to book it up and give it a go. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
 
Eifion From ChesterI recently returned to Splat for my second private session, this time taking advantage of the full Platinum experience. What an amazing experience! Pete was the consummate professional in the run up to the session, confirming logistics quickly and coming up with a brilliant plan for the day that would see me get completely trashed. The session itself was brilliant, with a good variety of games that kept me on the edge of my seat (in the tank) and also ensured that my host Kyle got a lot messier than he expected. I got thoroughly pied, gunged several times and completely obliterated in the Splat storm. There’s nothing quite like a Splat storm to bring you to your own personal place of Zen! And all the cleaning up is included in the session!
 
I would highly recommend a private session, whether solo or with a model. Kyle was a very willing sport, Pete was an excellent host and organiser; and all around the experience left me with a huge smile, a happy heart but thankfully without slime crusting my ears! I’ll be back next year for another go!”
 
Phil From London:: “My inaugural visit to the Splat Show was everything I hoped it would be. Any nervousness that I may have had disappeared instantly, as the producers talked me through how the day would work.
 
I’d left it up to them to plan my show (they’re the experts after all), but they still took the time to find out what sort of games I’d like to play, and the outfits I’d like to wear for each round.
 
I threw myself into proceedings with a level of confidence I never knew I had. And of course, I spent most of the day in the gunge tank. The gunge came from all directions – from above, from the front, and from the sides. And it felt utterly amazing.
 
The whole day was a riot from start to finish, especially the legendary Splat storm. If you’re thinking of booking your own shoot, don’t hesitate another minute. Just make sure you’re up for a laugh and make the most of your ‘star for the day’ status.’ Thanks”
 
Rhys From England “I had such a great time visiting the splat set. Not my first time on splat but my first time in the splat tank. It was huge! Much bigger than I expected but it didn’t fail to deliver several epic gunge drops. If you’re debating about going for the splat storm experience, I say go for it! All that gunge thrown, dropped and sprayed at you is truly a unique experience. The only way to know what happened exactly is to watch the footage back.  Pete was class, organising and delivering the whole experience.  
 
Spending the day playing games and getting messy, what’s not to love.”
 
Neil (aka Richey) from Ipswich: “I have been following SplatHQ productions for a number of years and initially made enquiries a couple of years ago about a private experience but, back then, I was not able to book a date.  Fast forward to June 2019, and I found myself sat in the SplatHQ Gunge Tank ready to have my ‘Gold Tier’ experience.  Reading the testimonials of others and chatting to some that had already taken the steps inside the tank, I booked a date that coincided with the first day of my 2 weeks leave from work.  Pete is a pleasant guy who is very welcoming and puts you at ease.  I didn’t have many nerves as I kind of knew what to expect from watching some of the previous productions.  For the Gold Tier, I got 6 gungings in the tank with the addition of some buckets of gunge thrown at me for the Splat Storm at the end.  Each time it was like a torrent of gunge cascading down on me completely covering me from head to toe.  A different outfit worn for each game (one of which I did quite well at). I have never taken so many showers in one day, but they were hot and well needed.  All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend the experience to anyone.  I look forward to making a return trip at some point in the future, hopefully in a head to head challenge.  Thanks, once again, Pete for all your efforts in arranging my experience.  A great way to start my leave from work
 

Rob From New York, USA: “I had an awesome time at my Splat! experience.  I was made to feel very comfortable and relaxed, everything was super chill and taken care of, and all my requests taken into account.  It was so fun to finally sit in the tank I’ve seen in so many videos and feel tons and tons of gunge pouring down on me.  And the video turned out amazing!  Perhaps the best part is not having to set anything up or clean anything up — just arrive, play some games, shower and go!  Super easy train ride from London to Kettering.  I highly recommend this experience and I will probably be back again!”

Dan From Leicester: “I recently had my first session at Splat HQ. The booking of the session was easy and straightforward. 
 
When i arrived i was made to feel welcome by Pete.  For the session itself i chose the gold experience which was 5 games in the tank followed by the Splat Storm. I had given Pete a few ideas of games to play which were taken into account and asked him to suggest one for me. After each game i got thoroughly gunged in the tank in various outfits from the show.
 
The whole day was fantastic and great fun. Thats to Pete for all the work he did before, during and after the session.”
 
Steve From Newcastle: A great experience in a friendly atmosphere.  On arrival Pete was so welcoming and put me at ease straight away, explaining how the session  would work and answering any questions I had.  The whole thing was really well oragnised, incorporated suggestions I had made beforehand and the games were fun.  The wheel of woe was my particular favourite – adding that little bit of jeopardy and anticipation made for a more exciting experience. The resulting video looked really professional – giving me my very own splat show appearance to treasure along with the memories of a great day.”
 
Stu From Scotland :“I chose to have a gold tier private experience with Splat! The booking process was seamless and I was contacted and my date confirmed within a few hours of my initial e-,mail enquiry. On the day Pete and James were friendly, good banter and made me feel at ease. I was impressed at the amount of preparation the guys had put in to make sure my private experience was tailored to my suggestions. I was allowed to play every one of my suggested games and the chance to select from the Splat! clothing and lycra collection meant that every game was played wearing an authentic outfit as worn by the Splat! models. During my five games the gunge flowed and the custard pies hit me from all angles. The gunge was freshly mixed, warm and brightly coloured and whilst it was fun playing to avoid the gungetank, it felt amazing to be sent inside it to be covered in gallons of thick gunk. The piece de resistance had to be the Splat! Storm- in all my years of getting messy I had never experienced anything quite like it. It was brutal and relentless and I was completely trashed with gunge and foam from every angle. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a fantastic day and I’d like to thank Pete and James once again for all their hard work before, during and after my visit to Splat!HQ. I’ll definitely be back!”
 

Ollie From Portsmouth: “ I was a little nervous on the way to Splat, but these soon subsided when I met Pete. He showed me around and where to get changed. Within a few minutes I was in the traditional Splat get-up and sitting in the tank for my first game, the interview. I probably babbled on a little too long on this, but I really was relaxing at this stage. Then the moment came my first tanking. It was great. Four other games followed, and I discovered I was terrible at quizzes, plus I really was not lucky in lucky or mucky. The gunge stepped up throughout the whole experience until it was time to film the infamous Splat Storm, and it was all that was promised, a not stop barrage of gunge, it was amazing.”

Post visit as I chose to have to have the experience filmed, it was edited and sent to me within 2 days, and really is to the same high standard of the real show. I recommend this experience to anyone and am already working out ways to try and get back in the future.”

Brian From Birmingham: “First of all, thanks for the experience on Sunday – I thoroughly enjoyed it. As I said at the time , I enjoyed my experience the last time, but this time was even better. The show looks great and the storm is spectacular. I will be back next year, one of the best experiences around with one of the friendliest people in the gunge world. The original and the best, by a long way.”

Joe From Bedford: “After considering other sites who offer a similar service, I decided to take the plunge (in the gunge ha ha) with the original guys. Oh boy, I’m so glad I did! What an absolutely wonderful gunge filled day . Pete put so much work and effort into making me not only feel at ease and relaxed, but he also managed to exceed my wildest expectations. Being on a show I have watched grow over the years and being in the famous Splat! Tank was an amazing experience I will never, ever forget. If you are considering taking the plunge (there I go again!), then do it with Splat! They know how to run these things and put others to shame. I will be back again very soon!”

Mick From England: “I signed up for the Gold package, and simply had the most wonderful experience with Pete and James.

Both of them are super nice guys, and they do everything to make you the star of a Splat show like all the shows you’ve seen, but making it personal to you. 

Pete is superbly organised and replies to email really quickly, so getting booked up a few months in advance was a doddle. He got in touch again about a week before my shoot to check things were OK, and to see about any special requests, and nothing I asked for in terms of games on the day or colours of gunge was too much trouble. He’s such a positive bloke, and kept on smiling, even when I accidentally splatted custard and cream up the walls, or when he had to wash used outfits by hand because the washing machine had broken down! I can’t describe how much it meant for the guys to organise a rainbow of gunge for my first gunging after the Splat interview: seeing myself gunged in rainbow stripes and foam the first time I took a tanking couldn’t have been more special.

James is stunning. Not knowing much about me apart from my name and my couple of requests during the week, within a few minutes it was like we’d been mates for years. He is so easy to chat too, and is clearly a massive gunge fan at the heart of the messy community. He made sure the experience was safe in every way: health and safety is taken care of, with him clearly describing how to get out of the tank and into the shower once you’re covered, what a tanking is like if you’ve never had one, and how best to enjoy the Splat Storm. But it’s also safe in that there are no surprises, you know what’s going to happen at every stage, and you can talk openly with a kindred spirit about what you like without embarrassment. He let me choose outfits from the classic Splat collection, and made suggestions about what to wear and colours of gunge that would look good on camera. I would say give him an idea what you’re looking for, and let him take it from there: I would never have thought of being in a baby blue singlet and getting splatted with shiny black gunge, but it was a great transformation.

I also signed up for a head-to-head with James, and kept on checking in the run-up that he was actually willing to risk a gunging in the middle of a working day. As if gunge mixing, tank emptying and cleaning, hosting and filming weren’t enough. Well, he was very much up for it. My favourite game of the day was our extremely messy Pass the Pie trivia quiz, where he was definitely playing to win, taking the pies like a trooper and doling them in every way possilbe. No holding back from either of us! Gentleman that he was, I took the victory tanking and he let me go in the shower first while Pete and himself got the next round ready, all the while in his singlet absolutely obliterated with custard pies and a plate still on his head. He shrugs it off as ‘whatever I can do to make your experience as you want it’, but he brings a huge degree of commitment and enjoyment to your show. Just remember if you go head to head with him, he’s the guy who’s organising your Splat Storm at the end…

My advice? Just sign up and get in that tank. I’ve enjoyed all sorts of wet and messy things in my time, but nothing is like the classic gunge tank. If like me you’ve seen hundreds of people getting gunged on TV and on shows like Splat, and you’ve wondered what it was actually like to be the lucky person in there, there’s no substitute for getting some lycra on and climbing onto that famous red stool. It’s quite a cascade of sticky stuff, but it sort of gently envelops you, it doesn’t blow you away. Sit up nice and straight, feet on the rail, hands out of the way, relax, smile and wait… Get your head right under the nozzle and let that lovely warm stuff go everywhere. Get a nice gungey face, and don’t wipe it clean until it’s all over. It feels wonderful: it’s not dripping off you at the end, more like it clings to you. You definitely need to get squeegeed down before you step out of the tank! And the best of it is after the first one you have another 5 to go. In fact the last one will come in the middle of gunge blasters and full buckets of gunge being hurled at you. I’m not sure what the usual reaction is, but I just ended up in hysterical laughter.

One more thought: consider getting stills rather than filming the whole thing. I definitely wanted to see what I looked like clean and messy for each round. You can’t see a thing after you’ve been tanked, you can’t even see what colour it is, so it’s great to be able to see the full effect of 50 litres of gunge. James and Pete were great at taking pics, and they have the idea of doing a hand-held film of one tanking which is brilliant, but without filming you can just enjoy the moment, and they can move around the room much more easily – they can stand right in front of you with those buckets and gunge blasters. So I’ve got great pics of the highlights and a slow-mo film to keep on enjoying, and great memories of the experience in my head. I think that’s the perfect combination.

Thank you, Pete and James, for making my day a really special one. Thanks for customising it from the first gunge to the bonus beans after the Splat Storm had passed. Thanks for making it safe and laugh-out-loud fun. Thanks for doing all the work behind the scenes so I could just play and enjoy, and I hope everybody who’s debating whether to go for it reads this and signs up to get in there.”

Tom From Oxford: “Any nerves I had disappeared as soon as I arrived as Pete immediately makes you feel at ease so you can relax and enjoy the experience. My first time in a gunge tank is an experience I will never forget – I only wish it had lasted longer! Pete’s top notch organisation ensures he takes into account your preferences when arranging the games and best of all the clean up is all taken care of. All in all it was an incredible day and I can’t wait to book my next session.”
