“Great family day”

Skirmish Edinburgh Paintball
Reviewed 15 March 2012

My boy's loved this, took a picnic, great staff, fun for all ages and even mum's can join in. Well worth the price for a family or boy's day out.

Thank Sharon M

We bought vouchers through Groupon. We were anticipating a full day, but on booking were told that we'd only get a half day but "We'll sort something out for you."
On arriving, it turned out the site had massively over booked and were delayed following an earlier booking. We all stood around for over an hour while the staff tried to organise things, although throughout this time communication and briefing was limited to "Wear the goggles when we tell you." and "We were doing someone a favour and that's why we're late. Sorry."

We were given a small discount on paint, but in total spent an extra £30 a head. The entire day was a shambles. Rude and aggressive staff and marshals who spent the majority of the games yelling at players for infringements that had never been explained in any briefing. Not to mention the paintballs pinging into the 'safe' waiting area (where we spent the majority of our afternoon, rather than playing) where we were told we were allowed to remove our goggles.

Oh, not to mention they didn't have enough markers for everyone, so we often had to stop playing and leave them on the floor so the other half of the overbooked group could play.

As one friend put it "If I wanted to spend £50 being shouted at and treated like a child, I could go shopping with my wife."

Avoid.

My friends and I were given free entrance tickets for Skirmish.
What a day it turned out to be.
First we were told by our friends that you get nothing for nothing they were wrong. On ariving we were given all the eqpt we needed to play at no charge and free tea and coffee, so they kept there part of the deal.
We had prepaid for a box of 2000 paintpellets before we arrived , and that was enough for the 8 of us for a half day with a total of 5 games in our half day.
Thanks to all at Skirmish
