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.

“really good place well worth a visit”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

needing to find somewhere for works day out asap I found this place on net. booked us in no problem. the place is really easy to find 5 mins walk from metro station. never been indoor paintballing before but enjoyed it just as much indoors without getting muddy and wet. they provide gloves and body armour at no extra cost which is nice . decent sized play area as well. Would defiantly visit again.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review.

The "Freehold" metro stop is very conveniently located to the arena. We would like to advise anyone using this method of transport to allow a little extra time than advertised by metrolink.

“9th Birthday Party”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Just come back from the best party my 9 year old son has ever had!!!! We had the Laser Arena for 6 children and 2 adults and it was brilliant. Mike, our 'team leader', was great with our party and really good with the kids. The venue had tons of space and was well set out with plenty of places to hide. I would recommend this to both boys and girls (my 11year old Daughter loved it) and hope to book again next year. Great idea with the party room as we had time to cool down before going home. Thanks again and great value for money

Thanks for your review of your Laser Tag party.

Mike will be pleased to get a mention, I hope the players were not too hot in the camo overalls we now issue, but due to the slight mess made by the new Low - Impact paintballing (for ten years plus) which is sometimes played in the same arena, we feel they are now necessary.
