Had a fantastic time on the 29th as a Halloween fancy dress night. Please manchester paintball areana don't stop this night.

So pleased you enjoyed it so much. "Working class comedian staff" I suppose we'll have to take that as a compliment! Thanks for your kind words. It was a great night, we all enjoyed it as much as the players. Rick. Syd, Mr Dawes, Jacob, and Monica More

I attended MPA after seeing their Halloween special advertised on Facebook and all I can say is what a great night it was! The staff were professional, friendly and clear on their site rules ensuring everyone was in for a good time. For the Halloween special they opened up both the main arena and graveyard as one massive playing arena... More

Great indoor arena with friendly staff. Was ideal for a stag-doo. Arena layout was of high quality and tactical.

My son and 9 of his friends had an amazing time here last week. Very well organised from start to finish and safety was paramount. Everything was explained in full to all the kids so they were in no doubt as to what to do and what not to do! Jacob was excellent with the kids keeping them all in... More

I attended today with three friends and we were joined up with another group of six so there were five on each team (red vs blue). It's the first time I've ever been paint balling and it was a great experience. The staff were very helpful and gave clear instructions for each of the games. Sid facilitated our sessions. Each...

Thanks for your feedback. Unfair team splits can happen as we allow people to choose who is on their team out of their own group, we do encourage people to split their group (as close as possible) to equal ability, but people have their own personal reasons for wanting to stay together, which we respect. We are the only paintball... More

Went here on Saturday for my friend's stag do and had a brilliant time. The games were well thought out for the location. The sabotage and bases games were really good for the layout of the arena. Been to other paintball venues where they try and make you pay through the nose for "optional extras" and extra ammo. None of... More

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you took notice of the lack of "Up-sell" at our venue compared to most if not all other paintball sites. We do not consider safety options such as gloves an "optional extra" and are the only site in the UK to provide groin guards. We are proud to be the UK leader in paintball... More
