Owner description: VISIT WEBSITE LINK ABOVE TO BOOK. The closest all weather paintball site to Manchester city centre. THE CHEAPEST PAINTBALL VOUCHERS FOR CHRISTMAS AVAILABLE ON WEBSITE NOW! Voted the best paintballing site in Manchester by tripadvisor users, every year since 2008!! Manchester Paintball Arena has the largest indoor paintball game zone in the northwest which is officaily given accredited status by the UKPSF. Situated in a 19th century cotton mill basement. An eerie atmosphere sets the scene as the paintball guns echo, UV lighting effects add to the drama which will unfold during your unique paintballing experience in manchester. An intense environment with game play to match, the bunkers are specifically designed for high action combat. 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. We now offer Low-Impact paintball for 10 years plus and Laser-Tag for 7 years upwards.

Came here for a stag do, had a great time the staff were very friendly and the arena is set out ideal for some intense shooting, I would recommend getting the bigger paint ball package as you will run out sharpish!

“Better than outdoor paintball!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

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.

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.
