Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had an absolutely awful experience here.

I went to DF as part of a birthday party – 7 kids ranging from 10 – 13 years and 3 adults. On their website, they sell it as a kids birthday party but the kids participate with whoever else has booked at that time, for us there was another group of around 10 kids and about 7 particularly aggressive adults. It boggled my mind that they think it’s ok to pair adults and children together – adults have much better aim, were mocking the children for when they were in pain and the dynamic completely changes for children if they are up against fully grown men. In the last 10 minutes of this painfully long afternoon, someone finally had a brain wave of separating out the adults and the children, and the atmosphere completely changed for the children – it’s outrageous that this was done so late in the day, esp as DF advertise this as a kids birthday party.

They try to create some sort of military experience, but frankly they come across as completely rude to paying customers so they are absolutely not doing something right. A group left because of the disrespectful way the staff were speaking to them.

The whole experience felt a bit haphazard and disorganised – the set up and briefing was quite protracted, on their website the timings are 2pm-5pm, but we left there with hungry tired children at 6pm. There wasn’t a debrief and top gun award at the end, unlike what they’ve advertised. They could be better when it comes to safety reminders, when we played the game in one of the more open spaces, they should have reminded people about their rule not to shoot anyone closer than 3 metres – esp when the group was a mix of children and adults. They did come down hard on those who were blatantly not following the rules like continuing to fire paintballs after they shouted ceasefire and they were strict about some rules like not taking your mask off.

The only positive was that the actual gameplay itself was fun, but everything around it, including the company of the accompanying staff was disastrous.

We had some paintballs left at the end, they refused to give a refund for it and would only give a credit note, despite my telling them that we were not going to return because it had been a pretty bad experience all around.

This whole thing is a complete rip off – we had to spend an extra £300 once there on pellets and gloves, the gloves are essential if you don’t want broken/cracked fingers because the bullets fly at 200mph and you can easily get hit on your hand. It’s appalling that they aren’t included as part of the equipment that you hire but you have to purchase them for basically one time use. Altogether the experience cost over £500.

This is not an event suitable for children, in our group we had several children crying between games because of how painful the paintballs are on impact – your neck isn’t protected and you can get hit on your neck, which happened to two kids in our group. Several children weren’t willing to play the whole time because they were in too much pain and most of us left with bruises. If you’re thinking of booking this for a party, don’t do it because you will regret it - it ruined our birthday boys’ day.

You will pay for the privilege of buying liberally overpriced packs of paint-balls, only after you have already committed to booking your tickets and arrived with your group of friends, which would all be welcomed as a captive market by ineffectual staff members.

You will be supplied with equipment of questionable age and working capacity. Your guns will occasionally jam while you aim through the foggy scratched up plastic of your helmet visors. You will brush this off, as you share this experience with many other naive souls who had the idea of choosing this company for a fun day out.

After surviving a patronizing introduction and a first few rounds of games, you may start to assess the rules of the playing fields to strategize your victory. Eventually, you may perhaps even come to the conclusion that they heavily incentivize repetitive standstills where you can promptly and efficiently dispense your ammo, almost if by design. This won't be an issue either however, as you will soon all be cattled back into the lobby area for a fresh new course of enthusiastically marked up paint-ball packs and snacks, ready and prepared to repeat this two or three times.

Suddenly, the games are announced finished and you are encouraged to leave the site as soon as possible; but not before you clean up the gear bestowed to you back to its most pristine condition, ripe for handing over straight to the next batch of valued customers.

Enjoy your future booking!

Made a corporate booking only to be called the next day to reschedule my booking as it was not cost effective enough to just have 7 of us @ £50 per head for 4 hours unless I paid for another 3 players or bought more paintballs.
In my opinion this is extortion and disgusting.
I was promptly made aware that if I did not like it there was no refund policy in place anyway and best to take it.

Avoid at all costs

I had booked this for my kids 12th and 13th birthday. It wasn’t an actual birthday party I booked just for 15 of us (12 kids and 3 adults). I had to change the date of paintball due to Covid but they were brilliant and just moved the date when I phoned them up.

It was a brilliant 3 hours and our team leaders were fantastic. It was a love day too. We were allowed to bring food and a birthday cake and have it after we finished.

The reason I only give it very good is the price of paintball. Or I should say the price of getting more paintballs. Very expensive but apart from that it was a brilliant day.

Bunch of conmen, I have been trying to get my money back from them, they have ignored all attempts to contact them, even ignored trading standards wont reply to them either, looking at my next steps, this is really theft. I haven't had the party that was booked and they only seem to contact you if you are making a booking.

Huge scam of a company. Didn’t honour our booking on 9 may and now not answering any calls/email/website enquiry/tweet when asking for assistance. Spread the word!! Scam. I will be reporting to all relevant authorities.
