This visit was a gift for our granddaughter’s 18th birthday. None of the group who played, daughters, son in law and granddaughters had played paintball before and were really impressed by the different scenarios and the organisation of the games and enjoyed every minute.
From the moment we arrived at ZULUWOOD the organisation and efficiency was obvious. What looked like a huge queue disappeared in minutes (I recommend filling in paperwork before you get there). The group were directed from place to place to collect their safety gear and overalls. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was infectious. Even those of us who were not playing had a good time.
There were 6 scenarios each played for 20 minutes with 10 minutes each way. At the end of the 20 minutes the warriors reappeared looking excited relating all that had happened. This gave players chance to clean goggles, recoup and rehydrate and get more paintballs ready for the next scenario.
As each person re-entered the Game Zone, their gear was checked and altered to fit properly so no worries about the safety gear.
Instructions were clear and audible and the staff were friendly, efficient and professional.
There was free tea and coffee available all day and there were paper towels and water for cleaning goggles and hands. The attention to detail for the youngsters was great. The paper towels were at different heights for the youngsters. Their equipment was thoroughly checked and adjusted by the staff before every game.
Acknowledgment was made for those with birthdays.
At the end of the structured games there was a free for all which everyone seemed to enjoy.
The manager, Paul, and staff were constantly cleaning up and disposing of the rubbish as well as chatting to those of us ‘who only stand and wait’ none the less they remained alert to any safety breaches.
The refreshment area was clean and tidy at all times and the toilets were remarkably clean given we were in a wood.
One of our daughters enjoyed it so much she was on the phone to friends and work colleagues arranging a visit even before we left the venue.
The birthday girl was made up, not only did she enjoy herself but her family had enjoyed themselves too.
The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back again.
Well done Paul and team.
