important information and frequently asked questions
Question 1: How much does it cost to play paintball?
Answer: It's up to you how much it costs as you choose the paintball deal that suits your budget, we can't tell you how much to spend but we can give a rough guide to the average amount of paintballs used at any paintball venue around the country:
For younger players (12-16) its around 400-600 paintballs.
For older players (16 plus) its around 700-1000 paintballs.
WE ACCEPT MOST MAJOR CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS ON SITE BUT DUE TO A SPORADIC AND VERY POOR GPRS MOBILE SIGNAL CASH IS STILL ACCEPTED AND A PREFERRED METHOD OF PAYMENT UNTIL SUCH A TIME OUR PRESIDING GOVERNMENT AND MOBILE PHONE SERVICE PROVIDERS SORT OUT BETTER COVERAGE ACROSS THE WHOLE OF THE U.K. OR WE ARE ABLE TO GET WIFI IN THE WOODS.
Q2: How do I book a days paintball and will we be playing with other people?
A: Call us 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 to book and pay deposits over the phone by card or you can book online (weekend games only). Yes you will be playing with other groups unless you book a private session, be aware private sessions or parties require a minimum of 35 players.
Q3: How old do you have to be to play paintball?
A: 12 years or older for normal Paintball, 8 years up to 12 years old for low impact Splatmaster sessions.
Q4: Can we just turn up on site and play?
A: NO, paintball sites are not open 7 days a week, Also we could be fully booked which is why you need to book a specific date in advance and pay the required £10 per person deposits first!
Q5: Do you do half day bookings?
A: Hardly ever, they are extremely rare and unpopular due to the very limited game time.
Q6: What are the start and finish times?
A: Arrive for signing in by 09:30 no later, late arrivals inconvenience other players and staff, if you arrive too late you may not be able to participate as you will have missed the signing in process and mandatory safety talk, finish time is up to you but normally most people finish between 15:00-16:30. Do not arrive late.
Q7: What should we wear?
A: Comfortable old clothing and especially decent and appropriate footwear, dress for the occasion and the weather, you're going to play paintball outdoors on a simulated battlefield environment in woodland setting 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 FOOTWEAR CHOICE: Boots with ankle support like walking hiking or work or even football or rugby boots with blades/studs are also a good choice.
#BAD FOOTWEAR CHOICE: Trainers are a poor choice and flat bottomed canvas deck shoes like Vans or Converse are next to useless and even worse than trainers. Sandals, Crocs or flip flops (yes, we've had people try and play in all three) are a big No No! Use your noggin and a bit of common sense.
Q8: What happens if it rains/snows/or is foggy?
A: Paintball is played in all weather conditions and rain snow or fog often enhances the realistic battlefield experience. With 30 years playing experience I personally love playing in the rain fog or snow, it's brilliant!
N.B. We do not cancel games because it might rain, might be foggy or might snow or indeed is raining is foggy or is snowing!
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 if you run out plus 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 McDonald's 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 without permission as you will be asked to remove it.
Q12: What do we get for lunch?
A: Our famous freshly baked jacket potato with the options of any combination of baked beans, mild chili 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 paintball experience vouchers from ticket a vendor or shop can we use them direct with you?
A: Only if they are our own Warzone Paintball vouchers, if it doesn't say Warzone Paintball on it then it's not one of our vouchers.
Q15: Do you have Covid 19 Corona virus safeguards in place?
A: Yes, antibacterial hand gel stations in all toilets and in the gun hut plus extra antibacterial hand gel dispensers are available for each table if required. We will continue to implement a strict cleaning disinfecting and rotor system for all used rental equipment just as we always have even prior to the pandemic, no equipment such as paintball guns or goggles are shared on the day which is something we have always done regardless, 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".
