“Great day out in the mud with a gun!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I organised a trip for 18 of us for a mates 30th Birthday to Amberwood, he couldn't have been happier (except maybe not being given a pink Target to wear!).
Everything about Delta Force is expertly done, from the simple booking process, the e-mail confirmation with detailed directions & some handy hints, a follow up call to make sure evrything was ok & to check if i had any questions was reasuring. On the day the staff were great, cheerfull & fun, but always in control of their group.
The day before we went my wife had been in hospital & was sadly unable to compete but still wanted to come along for the day; The staff couldn't have treated her better, kept her topped up with cups o tea all day, she can't wait to go back and actually get on the gamezones.
I have already recommended Delta Force & will again, as well as going back ourselves.

As I said, It's "A Great day out in the mud with a gun!!!" What more do you need?????? You need a clean pair of shoes to go home in, & at least £50. that is all...Enjoy

“awesome birthday treat”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We arranged a birthday party here for my son and his friend for their 11th birthday as they were desperate to go paintballing but very few centres accept under 12s. The booking was very easy by phone and followed up with phone calls from the centre to check we had all the information we needed and to answer any queries we had. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff who sorted the kids out with the gear. The rules were very clearly put across so the 11 year old boys understood what was allowed and what was not. The safety aspect was very well adhered to. I would deffinately recommend Delta Force for any paint balling experience.

“Fantastic day out”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Visited Ablerwood on 19/08/12 as a suggested Late birthday treat for my 13 yr old son.The party consisted of 10 people with ages ranging from 13 to 60 !.
I got a deal for Delta force via Groupon which was extremely good value for money, consisting of entry,100 paintballs , all equipment except gloves (not really required ) and 10 pizzas.
The staff were welcoming , informative and very safety conscious.
The games areas were well constructed, safe and well supervised.
The turn around times between the areas of combat were adequate enough to have a hot drink which consisted of complimentary tea or coffee as well as cold water, drinks and refreshments could be purchased from the on site shop, if you had not brought any with you.
Paint balls were only purchased on site and could be purchased at a small discount if bought in bulk.
The day itself began at 0915 hrs with equipment issue and safety briefings and lasted in to the late afternoon with a break for lunch.The-toilet facilities for an outside event were of a high and clean standard...with hot water, soap and paper towels all provided.
Of course staff will try to sell you upgrades of guns and pyrotechnics , it is up toyourself if you want to purchase these , the amount of paintballs you use depends on how trigger happy you are !
Booking the site was very easy through the call centre and the after sales/ customer care is of a high standard.

All in all a very good , fabulous and enjoyable experience for all, young and not so young.

Had an amazing day at Amberwood, was up for the day with a group of mixed children and adults and got to say the marshals could not of been more helpful especially our lead marshal Ali. Inbetween games Martin and Sheila look after us well and mangaed to catch some of the banter from the other marshals. All in all a fantastic day only thing was hoping for a bit more choice in food but its understandable how it is not possible without the facilities.
