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.

First time paintballing and would highly recommend. The team of 2 guys there were approachable and made us all very comfortable and made for an enjoyable experience. Jacob who ran the games was excellent as was the guy who did all the briefing. Excellent from start to finish. Plus..paintballs were quite soft so didn't really hurt on impact!

I wasnt sure how full paintball would be for this age range and there were lots of adult players... More

Great fun for me and my mates completely safe and it hurt a lot less than I thought the ammo cost a little bit more than I would of liked but the riot shield was well worth the money

Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed our more fragile paintballs (which hurt less than other sites) specifically sourced for us! To save money, next time please consider booking a larger package from the website in advance, as this is the cheapest way to play if you're a more trigger happy player! More

The visit was for my daughters birthday Party. The whole experience is very well organised, and the staff are very firm, but when you are dealing with 40 or so individuals of younger age groups, they do this to ensure that they get the safety aspects clearly explained to all involved, to make sure that all the participants get the...

What a great review and thanks for the advice to spectators. All the players get very warm, so we do keep the place at the correct temperature for the players. When the players are not sweaty there mask is less likely to fog up. Our booking confirmation does give this advice to spectators. Thanks for pointing out about the extra... More
