A nice Paintball Experience near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Imagine crashing through the undergrowth, dodging exploding paintballs, hiding in bunkers or spying on enemies from on high. On arrival, be kitted out with freshly laundered combat coveralls, full face protection paintball goggles and top of the range semi-automatic paintball gun with 100 paintballs each. Be given a full safety briefing by an experienced marshal before commencing play. This is a real chance to shake off the day-to-day responsibilities and rekindle a spirit of adventure. There are between six and eight games included in the full day experience, played out within differently themed areas and zones, set up to test your skills of strategy, leadership, navigation and teamwork.
Every weekend throughout the year.
Paintballing will go ahead whatever the weather.
Please expect to be at the venue for approximately eight hours. Each game lasts around 20 minutes.
Work as part of a team of 15 to 20 people doing battle against an opposing group. There can be up to 250 participants on-site during the day; the more the merrier, extra soldiers make for more paintball challenging madness.
Because participants play in several different areas, spectators are not able to see the action and are required to remain in the safety zone at all times.
Wear old clothes (ideally layers or thick, padded clothing) and trainers or walking boots. You’ll be provided with overalls, full face masks, goggles with eye, ear and throat protection and all other equipment.
Exit the M1 at junction 38 and take the exit signposted Woolley Edge through Haigh Village on Haigh Lane. After passing through the village the entrance to the site is about 250 metres further down on the left hand side. The entrance is through a farm gate and then turn sharp right and follow the track to the car park and safe area.
Minimum age 13. Paintballing is physically demanding and paintballs can bruise if you get hit.
Players tend to use around 400 – 500 paintballs. Lunch and additional paintballs can be purchased on the day (balls costs around £7 per 100).
