Owner description: VISIT WEBSITE LINK ABOVE TO BOOK. The closest all weather paintball site to Manchester city centre. THE CHEAPEST PAINTBALL VOUCHERS FOR CHRISTMAS AVAILABLE ON WEBSITE NOW! Voted the best paintballing site in Manchester by tripadvisor users, every year since 2008!! Manchester Paintball Arena has the largest indoor paintball game zone in the northwest which is officaily given accredited status by the UKPSF. Situated in a 19th century cotton mill basement. An eerie atmosphere sets the scene as the paintball guns echo, UV lighting effects add to the drama which will unfold during your unique paintballing experience in manchester. An intense environment with game play to match, the bunkers are specifically designed for high action combat. Paintball in an urban setting with thick brick walls, rescue your comrade from the car wreck, Only the brave will venture in our famous alleyway, which is not for the fait of heart.Open seven days a week for advance bookings 9am till 11:00pm all year round, and less than two minutes drive from Manchester's M60 motorway, with private parking for 40 cars and 3 coaches makes this the most accessible paintballing in Manchester. We now offer Low-Impact paintball for 10 years plus and Laser-Tag for 7 years upwards.

This is a great place to cater for the honing of your battle cry...
Staff were excellent and friendly, thankfully no-one had to be put up against the wall for flouting the rules... Prices are top too... perfect place to paintball when when either the weather isn't up to much or you just fancy an intense shoot-em up in a confined place...
Thanks again lads, our group had an ace time!

Thank paul t

As part of our Sport Tour Itinerary we had a morning session at the Paintball arena.

The instructors that worked with the group were very good and made the session extremely enjoyable for all of the college students and teachers.

Our group didn't stop talking about the paintballing.

I booked a works night at Manchester Paintball Arena for 20 of us, so they could let loose for an evening and rid themselves of the stresses and strains that come with our Job. They all had a smashing time, with beaming smiles from ear to ear. Jamie was just hilarious and kept our boys and 3 girls entertained and in check throughout(there weren't too many stray bullets firing around), Both Wayne and the Scotsman had us in fits of laughter throughout and were also very helpful and imformative. Would definatley re-book. Thanks to all the team at Manchester Paintball, you were excellent, and I especially liked the help you afforded me with my mask :) Gem
