I've done lot's of these and this place is up with the best, Chris who runs the place selected team games that worked well with rugby style tactics. Chris was very conscious of the safety side and kept 25 rugby playing kids and two dads safe while having lots of fun. Top day out and great value

Very poor communication from these people. Had one email saying we could book five teenagers onto a session at Ambleside site, and that was the last we heard from them despite me emailing them back and leaving several phone messages. We followed the directions from the website - stopped and asked three different staff members at the 'Drunken Duck' and... More

I took a mixed group of friends to Raw war and had an excellent time, all instructors were brilliant and very helpful. The bumps, bruises and laughter will be talked about for a good few months afterwards, once tried never

We have been taking school groups to Raw War Paintball for two years and it never disappoints! The young people always have a great time and Chris and his team always go out of their way to ensure this happens. I would highly recommend Chris and his business to everyone.

I took about 30 Year 11s to this centre and they had an absolute blast. From the moment I contacted the centre until th day we arrived, we were given all the necessary details including directions to the centre and treated like VIP. We got a great deal for our package and highly recommend the centre and the staff there.

I booked Raw War for a stag-do I was organising and I am so glad I did. Organising the event was made easy by Chris (the owner) who was very helpful and accommodating from the start; he even managed to rustle up some local lads to make up the numbers. The venue itself is excellent, a vast Forrest with lots... More
