“Excellent day out - safe and fun for the kids”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Visited in mid October with my 15 year old son and three friends. They had a great day out - lots of fun and adrenaline with a high standard of health and safety. The manager works hard to ensure that the standards are maintained and even when on this day the pizzas were late and too few she dealt with the situation quickly and recompensed those affected not just with action and an apology but with free paintballs.

I would thoroughly recommend it!

At Delta Force Paintball we understand a parents concern when allowing their child partake in this activity, and therefore safety is of the highest importance. We have passed your review on to the centre manager and her staff, as we are sure she will be pleased to hear of your kind words. Thank you for recommending us, and we look forward to having your son back, for another day of real life "Call of Duty".

Kind regards,

The Delta Force Paintball Team.

“Brilliant day out”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This was our first experience of paintballing and it completely exceeded our expectations. We booked a 10th birthday party for my son & eight of his friends (1 girl included) The kids absolutely loved the day. We only played 4 games which took us up until lunch-time, but as this was our first time a morning session was plenty - the kids were all knackered. The site manager and Marshals were brilliant, they totally went out of their way to make it a memorable occasion. We had a seven year old with us who was too young to play, but the manager arranged for one of the marshals to take him to the practice range and let him have a go with the paintball gun and we were able to take pictures so he felt included - brilliant touch. There is a well laid out `base camp' with plenty of wooden tables and seats - we took our own party food and the birthday cake was delivered to the table by `the terminator' which our son thought was brilliant and all his friends and staff sang 'happy birthday'. Safety equipment (Helmets, body armour and ninja suits) is provided but I would suggest thick padded gloves a must and wear old clothes and sturdy footwear. Paintballing is definitely for kids and adults who like a lot of activity and rough and tumble and don't mind getting mucky! I would definitely recommend this- it's a great day out and we will definitely be going again. A big thank you to the manager & staff for making our day such a brilliant experience.

“10 year old birthday party...amazing!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We went on a stormy day in sept 13 but rain or shine what a great day. Staff were fantastic, Sheila the manger especially switched on, and little touches like blankets and hot water bottles to keep warm we're thoughtful. 6 kids with me had a ball...and I to top it all I played
the last couple of games. Brilliant day and great clue considering its a whole day. Thx to all the staff.

“Fantastic Day Out”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Took my 14 year old daughter and 5 friends for a birthday party and they had the most amazing time. We bought this on the spur of the moment and were a little apprehensive that it may not be suitable how wrong could we be. The staff went out of their way to make the girls feel comfortable and part of the whole experience and even though they were the youngest and the only all girl group they had an amazing time and played for the whole day. The teenagers were grouped together and played different games to the adults.
I sat and waited while they played which showed me how hard the staff worked behind the scenes to ensure the safety, smoothing running and excellent customer service. The toilets were constantly cleaned and any rubbish collected, at one point it started to rain and a Marshall came and helped me move all our stuff to a dry area, they also ensured that I knew where the complimentary tea and coffee were. They also ensured that all safety instructions were followed to the letter which was very reassuring.
Overall I found the whole process from booking the event to the day itself to be easy very customer friendly which added to the overall experience for everyone. They are already talking about their next trip. I would recommend this to anyone struggling to work out what to do with a group of teenagers. The Manageress and her staff go out of their way to make the day special.
