What an absolutely fantastic party my son had today. The staff especially Christine were extremely attentive. We had 14, 8-9 year old high energy boys running around playing laser tag. It was very well organised. The marshalls were firm but fair and enjoyed a bit of banter with these cheeky boys. I would definitely recommend this as a party option... More

Have just had a very enjoyable day at Ambush Paintball. It was very reasonably priced and very well organised. Safety was paramount and the staff were strict, but fair.We did lots of different battle scenarios and there was a good variety. It was pretty energetic and we were all very tired at the end of the day, but it was... More

Christine & Co are professionals in every sense of the word. Our son and his friends had the most wonderful time at a low impact paint ball party. Everything was very well organised. All the boys enjoyed themselves. Only thing I would say is that the children use so much energy, you need to make sure to take enough food... More

My son had a half day session here with 5 friends for his 12th birthday & I couldn't fault it. Christine & her team were very attentive, the kids loved every second, it was well organised & safe. Thank you, my sons expectations were hugely exceeded.

When yesterday , felt a bit letdown and mis-lead with whole experience , please be aware a days paint balling will cost you approx £50!! They say you are provided with all equipment what this actually means is you get a old pair of scruffy ill fitting overalls a mask and a gun that doesn't go far or straight .... More

We have just had our son's 8th birthday party at Ambush, had 18 children for the full low impact paint ball party package! Very disappointed, worst party we've done in the 8 years. The kids were too young and the marshals didn't have much patience with them! It wasn't worth the money at all!

All feedback is welcome but I am sorry that you didn't feel able to share your concerns with us on the day. All of the children that various staff members spoke to seemed to be enjoying themselves. I wonder if the local traffic issues, which caused some of your guests to arrive slightly late, combined with the misunderstanding regarding the... More

As a non-paintballer whose only view was that 'everyone says it will hurt', I was nervous about booking a low impact paintball session for my son's 9th birthday party. Whilst it is fair to say that low impact paintballs do sting and bruises are left - the boys say that the fun of the experience far outweigh any downside. Ambush... More

I'm sure this place is fine for adults. However everyone who turned up for the afternoon session was lumped together. This meant that young children (12yo), teenagers and adults were all mixed together. One team had a group of 6 lads who had all the latest equipment, every grenade and smoke bomb. The last game was a farce with their... More

I am sorry that your experience was not what you had expected. We do offer Low Impact Paintball and had a session running on Sunday afternoon. It is my belief that your group was booked in through an agency rather than directly with ourselves and the booking came through to us from the agency as standard paintball - which is... More
