    Go if you want to have fun!!
    It was without a doubt the most enjoyable and pleasant event I had in a long. The staff was incredibly helpful and always willing to assist, even if it meant taking a paintball to the arm. One of the staff members, Leo, has assisted us with setup and game marshalling alongside other staff members. I had a great time.

    Birthday fun
    Great muddy, exciting Saturday afternoon fun. Leo and Kian was good instructor's, safety was their priority, Thank you. Shame a lad from the cohort spoiled it for another lady, maybe next time Leo and Kian should insist that player and team be sent off.

    The staff were extremely helpful , approachable and friendly. The whole set us was really well organised and the play areas were comprehensive and plenty of places to hide and shoot from. Our men’s Kings arms Bedford church group had fantastic fun, lots of banter and loads of great memories made.

    Skirmish airsoft
    This review is for Airsoft but I’ve never seen any young people walk away from party paintball disappointed, anyway back to Airsoft, good fun, different sceneries and we’ll marshalled, just the right amount of stern hit cheater briefings, and by that I mean a good telling off and to remember the rules, it’s only a game and we’re all adults, mostly, the young people I believe from 12 upwards are a credit to themselves for taking there hits like Troopers, they are part of your team and just blend in, a truly diverse demographic of people taking part, doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, the Camaraderie sets in at go time, and if you want to just blend in then where a full face mask and you’ll look like everybody else skirmishing around getting hit and taking the walk of shame back to you’re respawn area. Overall a top day out with your mates and if it’s your first time you’re highly likely to be going home with twenty more mates gagging to meet them again in two weeks time. Bonus, you don’t need any kit, they have it all to hire out along with optional food and drink to purchase separately from reception. If you see an airsoft weapon you like, just ask to see it. Honestly you can go wrong

For myself and the group It was the different locations where you could defend or attack.The first round for my first time was good,the thrill of looking and hiding to create division,oh and outlasting the lads and being one of the two girls still playing and not manage to get hit.Feeling sore today was worth it to role around in the mud.I just want to say a massive thank you for all the wonderful people who work here for helping me out massively whilst I was having a asthma attack;you all went out of your way even the first aider who wasn't working came running over.Thank you so much

We had a great time today. Steve, Sam and Will were amazing, so friendly and funny. Fun was had by all of the group. Food afterwards was very welcomed on a chilly day. Sam even went above and beyond by fixing our flat tyre after we finished without hesitation!!! Couldn’t recommend this facility enough!!

I have recently started using this site for airsoft and it is a really good site. The Marshalls are good and fare and can have a good joke with everyone. The games are good and the Marshalls are hot on if someone ain't calling there hits! Would definitely recommend trying it out.

One of if not the best place in n the midlands to go and play paintball and airsoft. The staff are professional but also make you feel comfortable if you are going for your first time. Definitely consider this place at the top of your list when looking.
