It is very cheap too. Me wearing a zebra onesie wasn't the best camouflage haha. And at the... More

Having participated in paintball a number of times, i was really pleased with our day at Skirmish Dorset. it has much larger grounds than most paintball venues which allowed for a wider variety of games that could be played. There isn't enough time for all of them in one session they have so many. The team there were fantastic and... More

Visited recently, venue was average. Toilets were diabolical, stank to high heaven. Tea/coffee and food was ok, nothing special. Helmets & suits could do with renewing, especially the suits as most of the Zips were broken. Staff were very polite and friendly. Could do with somewhere to wash hands other than those toilets. Good fun all n all, just facilities... More

I booked this 4 days prior to the Bank Holiday weekend and they manage to fit us in and made the day really exciting, Rusty even gave great advice on what package to go... More

From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff were most welcoming, friendly and totally professional. We felt completely safe and knew that they were doing everything to make our experience as good as possible. Everything was well organised and efficiently run. Unlimited free tea, coffee, squash and water most welcome. Food available but ok to bring your own.... More

So I was taken here on my stag do. Had a great time; one let down...loo facilities. After a late night the night before, and a morning of quad biking (read: being bumped about a lot), I had an urgent call for an extended visit to the smallest room. Problem was, these loos were, shall we say, several shades sub... More
