The booking process was very easy and very flexible, you had all the information you needed prior to the event.

On arrival, I have to say it was chaos, the drive and car park is totally inadequate for the numbers of people arriving and parking either to drop off or to stay for the day. If you are staying for the day, beware - all cars are parked one in front of the other so if you arrive early you will be last to leave! This really needs attention from the owners as an area for improvement, the drive needs widening and more car parking is required. Talking to one of the Marshalls, they said the day we went was not one of the busy days so I dread to think what it is like on a very busy day! Our car was damaged whilst parked for the day and of course the culprit did not do the honest thing and own up either. The manager was made aware of this, but of course cars are parked at owners risk. This did put a dampner on the day unfortunately :(.

In terms of the paint balling, it was very well organised, safety is very important and they took this very seriously. There are plenty of benches and also covered areas to sit. Tea and coffee is free which is a nice touch. the area is kept very tidy throughout the day with bins being emptied regularly. The day is action packed from start to end with clear instructions of how much time you have before the next game starts etc.

Paintballs are very expensive but it seems all these types of place charge the same - beware, you will need more paintballs than you think!

If you are taking children/teenagers, I would recommend staying with them, just to help with the decanting of the paintballs in between the games and to have lunch ready for them. We took a picnic though you can order pizzas which looked ok.

All in all (with exception of car damage) they boys had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed it and will no doubt want to go again!

We went as a family of 4 to Delta Force and had a brilliant experience the wet weather could not dampen..The facilities were great stayed undercover the staff even supplied hot water bottles to keep me warm...A really nice touch.The hot drinks were constantly available and free !!! the shop was very modestly priced for snacks .The gaming areas are superb and the marshals excellent it brings call of duty and battlefield to life ..even better.The staff are so friendly and happy and ensure you all have a great day even the spectators !!.We could absolutely recommend this arena and its facilities.Bring a picnic or order pizza delivered hot and fresh people even brought birthday cakes.A special mention to the assistant manager sorry cant remember his name but had blondish hair who came to talk to us a few times today and was very pleasant and helpful.Come prepared with a change of clothes its muddy out there !!A great day out

Today I went paintballing with 3 of my friends for a birthday. It was very well organised and was a lot of fun. The saftey checks was brilliant and the activities was amazing. After having paintballed at other places this was definitely the best. I have a few brooses but that's understandable. Definitely recommend to anyone. Also it was a hole day activity. Recemended for hen parties stag parties birthdays or just for fun.

My son and 4 of his friends had a full day of paintball including lunch last Saturday 15th March. They had a great day and we were able to leave them in safe hands, he is very keen to do it all again :-)

As a group of neighbours we look to try and do an activity each christmas! it's getting harder & harder to find something different to do, but this place was well worth the trip.
Having originally booked into the Wakefield centre we were called 1 week prior to say there were no other bookings but the Manchester centre had several other team splaying and we could join up with them. We were glad we did as although the weather looked as though it was going to ruin the day it held off & the centre here is well organised & ran.

There was a team of 3 on duty and they certainly knew what they were doing, quickly getting everyone organised and split into 2 teams. They covered off the boring stuff quite quickly but thoroughly, ensuring everyone knew the rules & would enjoy the day whilst complying with the safety rules.
The guys quickly got the action started and were on hand to marshall the games and ensure everyone was ok. Any issues were quickly resolved & if equipment played up quickly swapped the gear out.

They split the day into 6 games, played 2 ways so effectively 12 games in all, with a break between each game to stock up on ammo & refreshments.
Don't go thinking you won't spend any money, but this will depend on how long you last in each game & how trigger happy you are. I would suggest you can get by on 400 paintballs but ours averaged about 6-800 per person for the day including the already included ones. So probably about £40 per person to spend on the day.

The organisers were well trained & friendly, ensuring continuity through the day & advice / assistance when needed. They controlled the groups to ensure maximum enjoyment and safety without spoiling he fun.

Well worth a visit, well organised, good equipment & not overly priced when paying for yourself, but I guess if your taking a family or group it can soon add up.
