We really like this Experience located in Eccles, Manchester.
Imagine crashing through the undergrowth, dodging paintballs, hiding behind buses or helicopters and spying on enemies. This is a real chance to shake off those day-to-day responsibilities and rekindle a spirit of adventure. On arrival, get kitted out with full body armour, head protection and the latest USA-spec rapid-fire semi-automatic machinegun. Begin with a briefing from the friendly DF marshalling staff, prior to selecting a game zone of choice. There are six zones in all and as many or as few can be played as you like. Paintballs are not included but there is no limit on how many can be bought on the day and hot drinks are on tap throughout. The day concludes with a debrief and awards presentation.
Events run every weekend and occasional weekdays.
Paintballing will go ahead whatever the weather.
If choosing to stay for the full day, please expect to be at the venue for approximately seven hours, beginning at 9am and ending at around 4pm. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start. Lunch is at around 1.30pm.
There is no limit to the amount of participants but generally, there are no more than 20 to each marshall.
Spectators are welcome but must remain in the safety zone at all times. Viewing of the actual experience will be limited. Bring a camera as there will be some great shots to be taken in the safety area.
Wear old clothes (ideally layers or thick, padded clothing) and walking boots. Full body armour and face masks are provided.
Minimum age 16. Paintballing is physically demanding and paintballs can bruise if you get hit.
As the experience is for entry only and does not include any paintballs, they can be purchased at £7.99 per 100. Expect to use on average 400 paintballs over the seven hours. Lunch can also be bought on the day.
