Paintball in an urban setting with thick brick walls, rescue your comrade from the car wreck, Only the brave will venture in our famous alleyway, which is not for the fait of heart.Open seven days a week for advance bookings 9am till 11:00pm all year round, and less than two minutes drive from Manchester's M60 motorway, with private parking for 40 cars and 3 coaches makes this the most accessible paintballing in Manchester.

I went here as a group of 11 for a mates stag do. Absolutely brilliant setup, with great staff and good equipment. Spent about 4 hours here, and enjoyed every minute. If I'm ever in the area again as part of a group, I'd definitely come back - either that or would recommend it to anybody who happens to be in Manchester.

Thank Matthew C

Thanks for your review.
Our Lockers are small and are for valuables only, but are large enough for most hand bags. We do have clothes hooks for jackets/rucksacks and large bags can be left on the tables in the reception area. Since we opened in 2008 we have never had anything stolen from the reception area.

Having been here last year with my college group and thoroughly enjoying it, it was ano brainer to book again for this year. All of the students (even the ones who werent sure!) came away from the experience with smiles on their faces and asking when they can come again! Staff were polite and accommodating and made sure that all members of the group were actively involved in each scenario. Will be pushing to return next year too!

Staff were very friendly. The kids were aged between 11yrs and 17yrs & they all had a great time. With it being inside there was no chance of the day being spoilt by the British weather. They had 6 great games. The safety instructions were gone through thoroughly by the staff. I was surprised to learn that the photos are put on Facebook quickly & that you don't have to pay extra. Thank you. The food sold is reasonable in price. I didn't feel that I was being ripped off.
