Brilliant have been looking for something for the OH's 30th :)
#2
how many paintballs do you get? The initial price usually includes about 30 minutes worth, then you have to pay for refills
#3
Not been paintballing before - sounds fun

It does say that you have to pay £10 each for 100 paintballs, is this quantity sufficient or would we need to spend another £10 on another 100 on the day?
#4
I got two of those on the 10th Anniversary offers for 10p each. Bargain!

If you are there for the whole day you need at least 1000 paintballs.

I went for the first time not long ago. It was a package deal with 1000 free paintballs, I used all them + was given another 600 approx by a freind + I bought an extra 100 near the end of the day.

I was a bit trigger happy but I would say 1000 would do most people. They have to make the money back someway, I did see a website that does paintballing nationwide for £5 each.

dont take a fully automatic weapon if offered. you will use a couple of thousand rounds
#7
you can buy them cheaper than that could you take your own??
#8
£10 per 100 is expensive and this is where they make thier money back... usually its £5 for 100 balls and you can spend £40-50 easily in a day.
#9
Thanks for the replies, I think I'll have a look for an all inclusive package

Off to soft play now - more my style!!!

They won't let you take your own.

£10 per 100 is expensive, at the paintball trade events you can buy 2000 for £20. I think they were £6 per 100 when I went.

I wasn't use a fully automatic gun either. Brilliant fun but expect to spend £50+

I am looking for some cheap packages where you get 500-1000 paintballs thrown in, if anyone spots any, let me know please :thumbsup:
#11
Seems like a fantastic deal, am I wrong?
#12

So did I. We went on one of those. A LOT of fun, really different fields, types of game, etc.

BUT-gets really expensive after firs couple of hours. Each of us spent approx 40-80 quid on pellets, plus 3 for 5er smoke granades :) IT is expensive. You can't take your own ebay pellets, hence they rotate colours. So, you'd have to buy around 1k of each coulour...not really good idea, is it?

well, anyway, try for yourself!

They don't search you but they rotate the colour of the pellets on a daily basis. You could get lucky & the colour could match yours that day.

The ladies playing our game were given bullet proof vests for extra protection of their mams, they got on just fine.
#17
your only really shooting guns for around 40mins for the day, but in the first 10 mins i used 500 paintballs

really need around a 1000
#18
If you must go paintballing, go in summer as paintballing in winter is no fun whatsoever. And, be ready to spend lots of cash buying balls as the ones they give you will be gone in a flash. It's also very sore if you get hit on an exposed bit of your body. Others might enjoy it, but I'd need to be paid a lot of money to do it again.
#19
You can often negotiate better rates on ball prices by buying by the box (typically 2000-2500 balls) which you can then share between a couple of mates.

AFAIK fully automatic markers (we don't call them "guns" in paintballing) are still illegal in the UK, so you'll end up having semi-auto, either powered by CO2 or air if you're lucky. You control how many paintballs you use with your trigger finger (or if you're clumsy, by forgetting to press the lid down on your hopper and end up spilling your balls all over the mud) so if you find you're using too many, just slow down!

Normally when playing "punter" days, I'd budget to spend around £60-80, which might sound a lot but you're normally playing from 9am-dusk so you get your money's worth. You normally get more games in during the summer.
#20
Oh, the pain is never that bad - no more painful than being flicked hard. Paintballs do tend to leave fantastic bruises (or welts!) though.
#21
Not a really hot deal... usually they have these 10 for £10 deals all the time, sometimes even throwing in free food. As mentioned earlier in the thread, they make their money from the extras, and you will definitely need extra paintballs as 100 is used like in about half an hour.

I would say budget for at least 500 paintballs, and then you get your true cost of the trip.

Reading the terms & conditions of the offer, I am not so sure.. It does state in the small print you have to buy £10 worth of paintballs for every person in your party at the time of booking. This will give you 100 paint balls each to "start" with.. So the actual cost of the offer is £110 if 10 people go. The gift voucher does appear to be little more than a "token gesture".
Upon saying that, it appears the "standard" cost is £14.99 including your first 100 paintballs So, it works out... If you take 3 or more people on this offer, it is a deal; less than 3 and it works out cheaper to book direct. :)

being quite frugal, 50 balls will do you per game. but thats no fun :-D

The balls are where they make all their money as once your there and run out, either pay their pices or don't play.

I think i spent about £40 on balls as a group of us went in on a bulk buy of them at the place and gt a discount.

oh and if you go, make sure your hopper (where you put th balls in) is a tight fit as in one game ine fell off spillingballs everywhere and you can't really pick them back up as they get dirty then jam your gun.

furthmore don't be tempted to pick old balls up off the ground as they also jam the guns.

Damn good fun though!

if thats the case then thats not a special deal, paintball places are always offering it at £8-£10 for the day plus 100 balls
#26
I found 500 is about right for a day.
#27
This isn't a good deal if it's just £10 entry to the paintballing venue.

Quite a lot of places will offer £10 per person entry and you get the first 100 paintballs free and sometimes lunch (usually burgers or a couple of hot dogs, nothing fancy). If the offer includes all that then it is quite good but nothing amazing.

As has been mentioned you can't take your own paintballs, it's how these places make money by selling paintballs with a 500% mark-up. Yes you may get away with it but they found out I am under every impression they will remove you from that match, or even the entire day.

A lot of places won't let you take your own markers, also as has been said fully automatic markers are illegal in England, but that doesn't stop people programming their own markers to fire 3 round bursts or fire fully automatic after the first few shots to diffuse suspicion. This is why you can't take your own as I'm guessing it's up to the paintballing venue to make sure the law is stuck to.

Be prepared to not be able to see a thing. The masks which the venue provides will usually be absoloutly ****, their venting will be shoddy and the lense will usually have no sort of thermal conditioning. If you can blag/rent or buy your own (obviously if you never paintball again, dont bother) but it'll be the best descision you can make if you do. Good paintball masks with thermal lenses can be bought for either side of £40, if you can buy it from a paintballing store where you can make sure it fits correctly and is comfortable.

Paintballing does hurt but I've found most of the pain comes from falling over or sliding behind cover and catching myself on stray rocks/sticks. Getting hit is slightly painful but entirely bareable and not as bad as airsofting. Besides the whole point is not to get hit, so the best advice is to stay behind cover and bring gloves.

I think that covers most things, just remember to have some common sense and wear appropriate footwear. Boots are also a must, especially during winter when the mud is about 10inches deep, you will lose a loosely tied shoe and running through woodland in socks is not very fun.

[SIZE="3"][SIZE="4"]Very Bad Deal - Do Not Get Fooled By This!!![/SIZE][/SIZE]

As with most paintball deals, they offer 'promotions' like these - often from sellers on the high street - which fool ppl into believing they are getting a bargain day of fun.

To play you need a lot of balls, and at £10 each bag (100) is a plain and simple rip off.

Most places charge £5 or £6 per 100, and you usually get your first 100 free.

If you're gonna go, do some research first as a bargain this really isnt!

Yes, because its snowing outside!

And they'll make all their money back for this 'cheap deal' on the paintballs, charging £10 for 100 is crazy, check Ebay for some realistic pricing ;)

Not a fantastic deal as you will need to buy loads of paintballs... you will need at least 500, if you are new to it you will be trigger happy and need nearer to 1000, they are unlikely to allow you to bring your own that is where they make their money, they often quote heath and safety as inferior or heavier balls can cause injury (according to them). an "all in one package" with paintballs included is often a better deal.
#33
Usually get paintball geeks at these, who bring their own kit, then turn the pressure up to 300psi and use balls straight from the freezer, they then proceed to anihilate you and your ****** 'gung-ho' team mates who haven't got a clue, running round like headless chickens, a good laugh though, specially when you beat the geeks with ****** pump-action 'guns'.
#34
Doesn't seem that a good deal to me. The actual price is £110 because each person has to buy 100 paintballs at £10 for 100.
#35
Purchased one of these before, all of the other posts are correct. It will cost you a bomb!

Agreed. You may be lucky and get a site with the slightly "cheaper" price (after the first 100), "Additional paintballs may be purchased on the day. The cost of these is between £6 and £10 for 100 depending on your chosen location" but even then your looking at the same price than possible direct site pricing. Likely to cost you more.

If you're looking to go. Just make sure you check direct with your local field, you'll likely be better off.

Not hot.

been on a paintball deal like this... ended up paying out over £200 for pain balls...
Place was charging £135 for 2000 balls.... we had all day there.. like about 16 games, not including last man standing..
Found a nice little place.. took 13 mates.. we paid £80 each... got massive lunch, tea and coffee.... and UNLIMITED balls... plus.. they offered us a 2 to 3 hour session with a battle quest set.... but.. we ran out of time.. people had to get of home.. since we started at 9.30am... and it was 5.30pm..
Now thats a deal and then some.. oh and when I say small.... the grounds are about 5acres... took me half and hour to flank the enemy... lol.. going back again.. soooon.
#38
This isn't that great a deal as all the money is spent on painballs when you get there, but it's worth going paintballing if you haven't... I went last year and spent between £50 - £80 on paintballs, saying that though it was extremely good fun and everyone thought it was well worth it :thumbsup:

If you buy paintballs in bulk with other members in your group and are reasonably sensible with you paintballs you will probably spend half of what I did.

On the pain front, it does hurt point blank but you just have to get over it. I got shot in the chest and neck from 2m away, it stang but didn't spoil the day in any way, it's all part of it :)

We went to Hotshots near Newbury (really good place) - [url]www.hotshots-paintball-uk.co.uk[/url]

Let's be fair: Ebay's price for paintballs is not realistic pricing for paintballing. Ebay's price is realistic pricing for some guy that acquires paintballs in large quantity from some supplier, store them in his garage and resell them at a profit via mail order but without supplying any of the rest of what makes a paintballing day. i.e. staff, ground, equipment, building, etc. Someone needs to pay for that and it sure isn't the ebay seller.

So that leaves just a few ways for the paintballing companies to meet their cost and hopefully make a bit of profit: admission price, equipment hiring cost and selling paintballs. Any company that would let peoples brings their own ebay bought paintballs would need to charge £50+ for admission only.

Don't get me wrong, I don't like the "hidden" charge business model where you try to hook fishes by charging very little for admission and then try to rip peoples off once they are on site. So IMO, this is a very cold deal. I prefer clear upfront cost all inclusive, nobody trying to con anyone. But unfortunately, because some companies offer these pseudo-deals, reputable companies have no choice but to use a similar charging structure. They only way they can survive and compete is to reduce their "official" admission price to almost nothing too because they would loose too much business to less honest competitor. IMO, the honest paintball company should thenend up with two pricing structure: one as per cheap admin + rip-off supply and one all-inclusive deal and when you contact them to book on the rip-off deal, they take the time to offer you the all inclusive and explain you the benefits.

But still, let's be fair. The ebay guy that buys 100K balls for £200 and resell them at £10 per 1K + £5.99 postage is as much of a rip off merchant than the paintballing company. But that's capitalism for you.
