We visited for a 21st and the whole team are absolutely fab! Didn't think it'd be my cup of tea as I'm a bit of a wimp, but Sid was great at getting us stuck in. Highly recommend, thank you!

Thanks for the review. I agree with the advice, the arena is very cold for spectators. Every booking confirmation does advise this and suggests warm outdoor clothing. We actually deliberately keep the place cold and encourage wind to blow through, this helps the paintball masks...More

Hi, does anyone have recommendations or advice for the party room hire? Booked for a group of 10 year olds and not sue whether to take own food, go to McDonalds or have pizza from the venue?. Also wondering if need to take extras of any kind? Thanks for any replies.
