Frequently Asked Questions AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Question 1: How much does it cost to play paintball and how many paintballs will I use?
Answer: How much it costs is up to you, you choose the Paintball deal to suit your budget. How many paintballs will you use is also up to you but for a rough guide the normal amount of paintballs used at any paintball venue around the country for the younger player is between 400-700 paintballs and for adults is 700-1100 paintballs.
Q2: How do I book a days paintball?
A: Call us 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 and we'll talk you through the simple process and how to pay deposits or you can book online. Deposits are fully transferable but non refundable, if you need to change your booking date or if the country or region is put into another lockdown or Tier 4 we'll simply move your game date to a suitable time for you and your group, you do not lose your deposits. Please note, for weekday bookings a minimum of two weeks notice is required.
Q3: How old do you have to be to play paintball?
A: For normal Paintball 11 years or older, for low impact Splatmaster sessions 8 years up to 12 years old.
Q4: Can we just turn up on site and play?
A: NO, paintball sites are not open 7 days a week which is why you need to book your game day, you must book a specific date and pay the required £10 per person deposits first! Paintball sites and other organised team activity centers are not open waiting for customers to just 'turn up and play'.
Q5: Do you do half day bookings?
A: Yes but they are extremely rare and very unpopular due to the limited game time. Half days are subject to a minimum group size of 10 players with a minimum purchase of 400 paintballs per player or fewer players with a minimum spend (See the prices page for details.)
Q6: What are the start and finish times?
A: Arrive for signing in by 09:30 no later, finish time is up to you but normally most people finish between 15:00-16:30. Please do not arrive late as late arrivals disrupt other groups and interferes with the smooth running of the day.
Q7: What should we wear?
A: Comfortable old clothing and SUITABLE FOOTWEAR!, dress for the occasion and the weather, you're going to play paintball outdoors on a simulated battlefield environment in woodland so it could be wet and muddy or it could be hot and dry, you're not going to watch Kylie Minogue in concert so wear something appropriate.
#GOOD CHOICE: Boots with ankle support like walking work or even football or rugby boots with blades/studs are also a good choice.
#BAD CHOICE: Trainers and flat bottomed canvas deck shoes like Vans or Converse are also next to useless to play paintball in. Sandals, Crocs or flip flops (yes, we've had people try and play in all three) are a big No No!
Q8: What happens if it rains?
A: Dress appropriately or you'll get wet (see question 7 above)! Paintball is played in all weather conditions and rain often enhances the realistic battlefield experience.
We do not cancel games because its raining...or because you've heard or think it might rain or even snow for that matter!!!
Q9: Can I buy extra paintballs during the day if I run out?
A: Yes, once you've purchased your chosen deal you can purchase extra paintballs smoke grenades or frag grenades any time during the day.
Q10: Can we bring our own paintballs?
A: No that's silly, try taking your own burger to a McDonalds and see what happens. It would be like taking your own beer to a pub.
Q11: Can we bring our own food and drink?
A: Under normal circumstances you don't need to as we provide a lunch with all the deals except half day deals or either of the 300 paintball deals. Don't bring food or drink onto site as you will be asked to remove it due to added risk under the current situation.
Q12: What do we get for lunch?
A: Freshly baked jacket potato with the options of any combination of baked beans, a mild chilli con carne, butter and cheese.
Q13: Do you have personal lockers on site?
A: Yes, (£5 fully refundable deposit per locker is required).
Q14: We've bought some vouchers from ticket a vendor or shop can we use them direct with you?
A: Only if they are our vouchers, if neither of our direct contact numbers of 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 are on the voucher then its not one of our vouchers. You'll need to ring the number on the voucher you've purchased or been given.
Q15: Do you have Covid 19 Corona virus safeguards in place?
A: Yes, we have introduced even more antibacterial hand gel stations than we had before the pandemic including in all toilets and in the gun hut plus extra antibacterial hand gel dispensers are available for each table if required. We have introduced social distancing measures and a cleaning disinfecting and rotor system for all used rental equipment, this basically means any equipment used on any given day including guns goggles overalls ambush hoods etc do not get used for a period of one to two weeks after they have been cleaned and disinfected, also no equipment such as paintball guns or goggles are shared on the day which is something we have always done anyway, we have never shared equipment between players on any given day, not even guns. WE ARE CLASSED AS A "COVID SAFE" SPORT BY THE UK GOVERNMENT AND WE ARE OFFICIALLY A "COVID SAFE VENUE".
