This paintballing event is a great way for you and your friends or workmates to experience an adrenaline-fuelled and action-packed drama that will bring you all closer together as a unit and create life-long memories. It can also be a great way to improve communication, encourage collaboration and promote teamwork. Teams will be formed and in order to succeed, the winning team will need to work together to develop tactics and strategy to outwit their opponents. While you're having fun on the battlefield, you’ll be developing valuable transferable skills including leadership, accountability, endurance and resolution in a highly stressed environment – skills that are essential in any line of work. From start to finish you’ll have a seamless, top quality experience talked about for years to come.


About The Game Zones:

What could be more fun than paint-balling your way through your favourite Hollywood movie set? The game zones are inspired by Hollywood movies, cult classic video games and iconic moments from history. These game zones have been brought to life using props and ex-military vehicles from real big budget movie sets. You will not be disappointed by its level of realism and attention to detail.

16 Movie Style Game Zones at one of the best UK paintball venues including the famous COD Map Bog - a full to scale Call of Duty replica playing area with a real Russian T55 tank, containers, buildings, bus, land-rovers and fuel drums; the Speedball - Fast paced speedball field based around a huge crashed helicopter. Cover, move and shoot around the rows of hay bales in the electric football pitch sized, flood-lit area; the Missile Command - A favourite packed with features including a huge cold-war Missile Lorry carrying a nuclear war head, Saracen armoured personnel carrier, Helicopter and sheds galore; and much, much more.
