“A fun filled afternoon!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

For starters I must say that all the staff were really friendly and involved, shout out to EddieZ and Coyote. Visited on November 23 2013 and the cooler temp was a plus as once the adrenalin starts pumping your body heats up really quickly!

Signage isn't too clear at the main road so be prepared to make a sudden turn if you are approaching at speed. The exact location is beyond the barns and farm equipment so once you've turned off the road keep to the main track, about another 1000m once you're past the barns the parking lot & wooded area is in site.

Fun filled and exciting activities for everyone 8+ and the amenities are convenient. Personally the half day was enough for me as it was my first time.

Parking isn't a problem neither is there a cost.

Thanks for a great weekend guys, I'm looking forward to my next visit!

“Perfect, every time!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Went to Ambush last weekend and as it has been for the last 9 or so times I've been, it was awesome!! The staff are really keen to help and Jim & Christine ensure that you have the best time possible!

Hopefully it won't be long until I'm back again.

“Action-Packed Adrenaline-pounding adventure”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Went here for a weekend (SATURDAY) stag doo with 11 friends. Had a fantastic time. It was one of the hottest days of the year, but we still all thoroughly enjoyed our time. The staff were helpful and made us feel welcome and made the event safe. We played around 7 'missions' with each game taking around 20 minutes. It cost £10 plus extra paint-balls. As normal, the paint-balls were extortionately expensive but it is well worth getting a good number. I recommend buying around 500 for a good day. 5 friends came together and we purchased a 2000 box set (for £100?!) this made the day £30 in total which isn't cheap, but comparatively not too bad.

The 'maps' are well laid out and well equipped with different structures for different games laid out over the 100 acre site. Equipment was good and clean and there were 'hire upgrades', though we did not purchase any of these.

All in all a very happy and exhilarating day of paintball

“Top Notch”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

Couldn't ask for a better day. It's great value with the pre-booked packages and they have some excellent, well thought out game zones. The staff are friendly and helpful, but above all they want to make sure you have the best day possible.

Can't recommend Ambush enough!

“Superb Day Out”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Friendly, helpful staff.
Exciting day & good value (book an inclusive package in advance or buy in bulk on the day - helps keep it manageable!) - have been elsewhere and felt ripped off but this wasn't the same.
