Very friendly and professional staff. Equipment did not disappoint. Look for half price deals a few weeknight evenings and all holiday Mondays. The commando package is a very good deal. I would say their own specials even beat groupon deals so do the math before you book. The "paint" washes out easily. The entrance is a bit hard to find... More

The premises are in a very basic shape-the washrooms are dilapidated and I can't recall seeing anything like it in Canada; walls are not fully painted; there's nowhere for the parents to sit. There are strict policies on using paintballs from other places, although they are standard size and those other places encouraged clients to take them home and bring... More

This place has a really small area, also there is alot of sand. The whole battle ground is covered with sand. I've been to other indoor paintball places and they didn't need to use sand. Im not sure what the sand is for. Our group of 10 ended up spending about 800$ which i think is a bit over priced.... More

We had a bunch of friends go for a birthday party. We had a decent time for around 15 of us. There was a great deal through Groupon for the rental of the equipment. 30$* for 4 people for 4 hours: gun, mask, 100 balls per person. I was able to go through 2 rounds with 100 balls (though I... More

We had a bday party with a bunch of 12-year-olds - they all had fun - despite a few welts here and there. Note to parents who consider having a bday party there: 1. Bring a case of water - when I booked my party it included 2 pizzas - but didn't mention drinks weren't included - so I had... More

I'm surprised about the negative reviews here. We went as a party of 9, including three 10 yr olds and the experience was great. The staff were friendly and well informed. Went through proper training and played about 2 hours straight. The arena is bright enough and plenty of covers to hide in. I do, however, agree that the refs... More

Bad staff, overpriced, no one knew anything about prices and kept guessing and asking for money money. Only one referee for a full field. Referee was hiding behind a pole all the time and was texting on his phone mostly while ppl were screaming and getting hurt. Pure negligence!!! Everything was an extra and attitude was so bad by the... More

When they have deals, the prices are reasonable. They usually don't have deals though, so the prices tend to be ridiculous. During our (myself and seven other friends) match, I tagged numerous people on the other team. However, dishonesty is rampant here, as is the case in many games of paintball. That's what the refs are for though, right? Wrong.... More

There was no place to buy food or drinks, not even a bottle of water. There was one vending machine which was out of order. Also the washroom was not clean. The lockers were not clean looks like this place has never been cleaned before. The employees were rude, and did not proerply explain how to use the paint ball... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
