Description

Black HUX Down! We got a Black HUX Down!!

Come join us for a full day of paintball action! Inspired by the award winning movie Black Hawk Down, we are hosting the first of its kind UX Paintball Experience with Force 10 in North London this fall.

Paintballing is a great way for you and your friends or workmates to share the same great drama, adrenaline rush, and above all life-long memories that will bring you all closer together as a unit. 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 in a highly stressed environment, and problem solving – 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.

What could be more fun than paint-balling your way through your favourite Hollywood movie set? 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.
