3rd time paint balling, this was was by far the best one. The people were so nice and friendly especially Sid, who was a great instructor. Games were also very fun and didn’t hurt as much as my past paintball games.

Had a great day. They dressed the stag in a costume and even set up a 10 second firing squad style shot at him. Very safe and great fun. The instructor Sid was firm but very fair. Would do this every week if I could.More
