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.

Enjoyable first time experience! Staff were very thorough and ensured you were suited and booted correctly. Answers to questions were attentive and welcomed. They were even kind enough to show our group other rooms that can be used after the session had finished. Thanks for a top day!

Excellent day for all family members aged 11 up, tried this event first time with 11/12 year olds. All staff were very helpful and polite, eased the children's nerves beforehand, Barnsey was great inside the arena. Will be visiting again in the near future.

Tried paintballing out with 11/12 yr olds to see if they would like it before booking her birthday party. Well, she liked it and wants her party there. The staff eased the kids concerns they had before they started. The Marshall " Barnsley" was brilliant. He interacted well with the whole group. It was a laugh, fun and exciting day.... More

Just a quick note to reiterate what a fantastic evening we had on Friday celebrating Nathan's birthday with his friends and brothers. I have been previously to some outdoor paintball arenas, but this indoor facility is far superior. Worthy of a mention also is the attention to detail and safety shown especially to some of the younger members of the... More

Paintball can seem expensive if you come on a basic package and purchase extra paintballs during games. Our paintball packages are the best value in Greater Manchester, as we do not charge extra for gloves etc. For a great time most people need 500 paintballs. Our 500 paintball package is on special offer at £35 per player. Cheaper per hour... More
