Andy, London, England, UK: ALL I CAN SAY IS BOOK AN EXPERIENCE!
I’ve been a long time gunge fan and experienced my first time in a real gunge tank and it was worth every penny. I booked “gold” wanting multiple tankings along the way and at no point was I disappointed.
The initial drop the tank gives you has to be experienced & the following games add to the fun of the day.
The game element of the experience is exactly as viewers of the show watch, so it’s like being an actual contestant.
Pete is OUTSTANDING from start to finish. He puts guests at ease, explains everything, is accommodating to game requests or particular specifications and looks after the well-being of splat show fans from the start to the end of their experience.
I can’t emphasise enough how any gunge fan needs to go along for a great day out. I’m already looking at dates for a return trip to the tank. Thank you Pete for an amazing experience and all the hard work and effort you put into running The Splat Show.
Paul and Martin, UK: Thanks for a brilliant first Splat! experience, we both really really enjoyed it, you made the whole thing really relaxed, fun and enjoyable, we’ve not stopped laughing yet!
Looking forward coming back to see you soon for another fantastic experience.
Matt, UK: “Taking the messy plunge on a splat show experience was such an epic decision. I’d never been in a gunge tank before and even though I was both excited and a little nervous, Pete did such a good job in creating a relaxed and easy atmosphere. He was also amazing in tailoring the experience and helping to set up great messy games that we haven’t seen on the show in a while. He put so much care into creating a memorable and fun filled experience.
I’m definitely going to find some time to come back for a return visit and I’d recommend it with bells on.
David From USA: As a fan of the show for many years I’ve always wondered what it would be like to experience it for myself, However living in the U.S. presented its own challenges because I would need to plan a trip to the U.K. After a delay of around 2 years due to covid I was finally able to start planning and I ordered the custom gold experience to have the full show and Splat Storm. It did not disappoint. Pete was very nice and professional throughout, and in the days leading up to the experience he also gave me all the details I needed to know before coming, and as such, the process is very easy. It was great not to have to worry about anything and just have fun. He lets you know what to expect and does his best to make you feel comfortable. I was also able to choose from a bunch of the different outfits that have been on the show over the years, The entire thing was a blast, pun intended, and because of how good a job Pete did of getting me ready I wasn’t nervous at all. He did everything in his power to give me a good time and get me as messy as possible.
The gunge was really warm, which was nice, and each game plus the tanking at the end of them got messier and messier. I got more progressively covered in gunge until it was time for the signature part of The Splat Show the Splat Storm. To say I wasn’t fully prepared for how messy it was would be an understatement. Not only was it the most intense gunging ever, it was completely overwhelming more so than anything I could have imagined. It was just so much gunge, the blasters were so powerful I couldn’t do anything other than sit there and take it, and I loved every second of it. After the storm ended and the gunge in the tank was released all over me I got so trashed, that I don’t think that even a single part of me was clean. I could barely even see, it took forever to get off, and the day still wasn’t done because there was still one more game left and I got even more covered in gunge, which was fantastic.
Even though the whole thing ended up being 4 hours, the experience still felt like it passed by in the blink of an eye and it was one of the most fun days I’ve had. Since I chose to have the experience filmed I got a fully edited episode of the show starring me to watch whenever I feel like. If anyone is at all nervous or unsure if they want to inquire about having your own private experience and even if you live somewhere much further away like in the United States, just take the plunge and do it. I did and had such a wonderful time I’m already contemplating another trip just to come and do it again.
Adam, Suffolk: Nothing prepares for you for when you walk into the room and see the Splat! Gunge tank. Pete was incredible from start to finish in the planning our custom event and made us feel so welcome at ease on the day. We truly hope to return in the future!
Andy from Birmingham: Gold experience is exactly what you get on the shows. A very warm welcome to the tank after talking about gameshows of old what had encouraged me to go for the splat experience. Pete’s hard work was much appreciated. Very good communication from Pete from initial booking to revisiting my experience from his well edited recording…Would highly recommend if you want to be on your own show.
had many smiles on my face while getting splatted!
What you waiting for? Don’t get gunged, get splatted!
Paul from London: My Splat Show Gold Experience was amazing! Pete was reassuring and thorough in the run-up to the day itself. He took care to answer all my questions about practicalities, privacy, and making the whole experience covid-safe. As for the day itself – well, sitting in a gunge tank and getting splatted is definitely a fun and unique experience. Especially when it happens multiple times! The gunge was plentiful, thick, and surprisingly warm. Throughout, Pete put me at my ease while making sure I was safe. If you’ve ever wanted to try getting gunged, a Splat private experience is strongly recommended.
Bob, Wales, UK: Despite being a gunge fan for years, I was so nervous when arriving at Splat. Pete was great, welcoming and calming. At least until I took a seat in the infamous tank! The gunge was thick, colourful and plentiful while I was completely covered time and time again. I was good at the games, getting cocky despite knowing exactly what was going to happen. A great day all round, highly recommended.
Zak From Wales:I had an excellent time participating in my own Splat! Show, and not just because of the incredible amount of gunge thrown my way! Pete was very professional but still easy to chat with and it was very interesting to see how the whole operation is run.
MJ From Sussex, UK: ‘I’d been wanting to get in a gunge tank for ages and finally plucked up the courage to book it with Splat as a post lockdown treat. All I can say is I truly enjoyed every moment of it and would recommend it åto anyone who wants to be covered in endless gunge
Andy From The Midlands: “With a miserable 18 months finally behind us, I’d decided that the remainder of 2021 was going to be all about seizing the day, and high on the list was a private Splat! Session. Gunge for me has mainly been a solo thing, usually involving various foodstuffs, so this would be my first time experiencing ‘proper’ gunge, as well as a gunge tank itself, and someone else dishing out the mess!
The now-legendary Pete has the whole operation off to a tee. Everything was ready to go when I arrived (even just seeing the numerous buckets of gunge in the corner waiting for me was so exciting!), and I was quickly getting changed ready for my first game. I’d chosen to wear my own clothes for some of the games (experiencing the Splat! Storm in a full suit and tie was simply amazing!) but I also loved the opportunity to rummage through the ‘dressing up box’ of the various outfits made famous by the Splat! Models, choosing something to wear.
Proceedings began, and we had a real laugh as we worked through each of the games, with pie after pie being thrown at me, the (upgraded) gunge blaster aimed right in my face, and of course, some amazing tankings in between! (Oh, and don’t worry about how good or bad you’ll do at each of the games – Pete will always make sure you get the result you want!)
All too soon, I’d played my final game, and so after a final annihilation in the Splat! Storm, it was time to head home (still with a bit of gunge behind my ear, and the feint smell of custard in my nose). But I was able to relive it all again the following day when my video arrived (superbly edited to the same standard as the commercial videos) – the perfect memento of a truly amazing experience!”
Jamie From Scotland” “A personal Splat! show is just such a special treat. Peter really does everything to put you at your ease. It’s amazing fun and everything you’d expect it to be.”
BRENDAN FROM DERBY UK” I had a fantastic time during my Splat gold tier experience. Pete is a brilliant host. He is very professional, very easy to talk to and made the whole day a complete pleasure. I was incredibly nervous when I initially arrived and got into the tank for the first time but after my first gunging, I was raring to keep going back for more. The games and quizzes were really fun and the gunge felt amazing. It was everything I hoped for and more. I will 100% be going back in the future and I would hugely recommend it to everyone.”
Tom From London:I thought I knew what to expect with my second Splat private experience but Pete pulled out all the stops to ensure I had yet another memorable day in the gunge tank. I even got to try out some brand new games and got absolutely trashed in some new colours of gunge too. Thanks again for an awesome day and see you next time!
Tony From London – “If you are looking for a gunge tank experience then look no further than SPLAT you won’t be disappointed. I went for the gold package and it was perfect everything was planned before I arrived and I couldn’t stop laughing (although this was difficult at times due to the amount of gunge).
If you going to experience the tank you have to go for the storm the gunge is relentless and your only break is a few seconds before the tank drops. I went for it being recorded and the quality is fantastic it truly is your own show but importantly its Private”
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!”
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 Splat! HQ. I highly recommend this experience and I will probably be back again!”
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.”
Jonathan From London: A brilliant day at the Splat Show – it was everything that it promised to be and everything that I was hoping it would be. Like some others, I was a bit apprehensive as I arrived, but that disappeared pretty much immediately: the whole experience is so well organised and delivered, and Pete so easy to get on with, that all I needed to do was relax and enjoy it – and I did! Sign up – you’ll have a great time.
Aaron From England : I booked the gold tier including the epic Splat storm, although I have been gunged before it had been a while so it was a great experience to get back in a tank and covered in gunge, and I mean covered! Was v impressed with the amount of gunge! Pete was a great host, putting together some good games like on the show, the only difference being that getting questions right gets you gunged, because that’s what your there for! He also sent me the video of the session on the same evening, great customer service.
If you enjoy being gunged, or think you’ll enjoy it, go for it – it’s a great experience!
John From Bedford : “Really enjoyable day at Splat! HQ. Lot’s of great clothing to pick from and Pete was really professional and easy to get along with, and clearly put a lot of hard work in behind scenes. Would definitely recommended for anything thinking of trying it and would certainly do it again”
Jon from East Midlands : “i booked a bronze package late 2019 or early 2020 for June, Due to covid 19 I was lockdown so it was rebooked for august 2020. Pete was very helpfully all the way thur it to make sure I followed the covid rules. I’ve been a fan of the website for bout 5 years i seen that you can have a chance of getting gunged in the tank. The day has came and Pete was helpfully. There was plenty of lycra and clothes you can choose from to get gunge in so i decide to wear the famous lycra. The moment had came to go and i sat in the tank. I sat on the famous stool, my hands was away from my face and i looked up to the nozzle n close my eyes and then the lovely warm gunge pour over me face n body. The gunge was thick which was very good to have, it felt so great to be gunge was a dream to go in a gunge tank. i had it recorded and 5 hours later i got the video from the gunging what was very good n edit to i would be coming back to do more gungings in the future. you deffo get the valve of money with the gunge when you book it at Splat HQ”
