Paintball Range General Questions

Is it painful?

No, the markers are only used to shoot the targets and at no time will participants be shot at….even if he/she is the stag/hen and you think it would be funny!

What guns are used?

We only use high end Airsoft guns which give a degree of kinaesthetic feedback when you pull the trigger to provide an even better shooting experience. To achieve this, we use guns which are referred to as gas blow back or electronic blow back airsoft guns as these are some of the most modern and advanced airsoft guns available!

Is it just shooting at one target?

No that would be boring! You can just shoot at one target if you wish but Rapid Shot is a range which has multiple targets available to each person. Our target system is so clever that we can change things up, adjusting the order in which the targets appear, how long they are active for and how many times you must shoot the target before it will move onto the next one!

Do I need to have shot before?

No, almost any one of any age or ability, with or without experience can take part in this activity. Our friendly staff are always on hand to offer coaching and advice at all times. If you are new to this type of thing then we can give you some basic skills to get you started. If you are experienced, then we will let you get your eye in before offering more in depth knowledge to help you improve your drills and marksmanship principles so you can get even more out of the activity!

Is It Safe?

Yes, safety is paramount when taking part in any of our activities and we hold appropriate insurance just in case. The activity is based around using a variety of equipment to shoot at targets; meaning no should be hurt.

We will not tolerate any deviation from the rule of shooting at targets only, anyone who does not adhere to this rule or is being unsafe at any time may be asked to leave the range immediately without a refund. We want people to have fun and enjoy the activity but we also want to be safe!

Do you have to be a certain age to take part?

No, the kids can take part too! There is no minimum age to enjoy our interactive range at shows/events as our equipment will suit all ages and where required 1:1 assistance will be given. We have even had children as young as 3 experience the thrill of firing our weapons!

For children to get the most out of our private hire experiences where they can take part in various activities and challenges using our range, they must be able to safely hold and operate the weapons unassisted so we do recommend it for those 12+ years to fully benefit from the experience, however, the age is only given as a guideline.

There is also no maximum age limit for this activity so all your family and friends can join in!

Do I need to wear certain clothes?

There are no specific clothing requirements to take part, however, please do dress for the changeable British weather if the range is going to be set up outside and wear securely attached footwear (no flip flops etc) just in case!

What are the paintballs made from?

The Paintballs that we use are made from food grade materials and will decompose without causing harm to wildlife or the environment.

As the target system is mounted within its own trailer, the majority of the paintballs and the ‘paint’ remain inside the trailer itself and are collected in containers through a gutter system. We can also layout netting on the floor immediately in front of the range to collect shell fragments that make their way outside of the trailer if the range is being used in an area where this is required.

Can anyone have a go?

Absolutely, Rapid Shot is an inclusive activity so that anyone can take part. If one of your group has additional needs please let us know. If we are made aware that a member/s of the group have a certain disability or condition, we can modify the way in which the session is run or the equipment that is used. Are staff are extremely understand and all come have experience in managing additional needs or support so will be able to make sure everyone’s experience is the best it can be!

Paintball Range Booking Questions

Is there a limit to how many people can take part?

There is no minimum or maximum group size for private bookings, as the price to hire the range is based upon the length of time that you wish to use it.

The more people you have in your group, the less it will cost per head, however, this means that each person will get less time shooting.

As multiple people can shoot at any one time, we usually suggest that for a good compromise between the length of time shooting and cost, that a group of 12 is optimum, however,  9-15 people is also works well and larger groups can also be catered for. 

What are the requirements for the range to come to my venue?

Our range is completely mobile and can be taken to any location in England and Wales. The range is designed for use outdoors, however, could also be set up under the cover of a barn or outdoor roof. The range requires an area 6 meters wide by 12 meters deep.

For extended hire periods, the range may require electricity, however, as well as a solar charging system, it also has an electrical hook up as well as a generator so we should have this covered!

What’s the cost for all this fun?

Our unique paintball range along with all the other necessary equipment can be set up at any outdoor venue in England and Wales that you have permission to use for £340 for the first two hours and then £50 per hour after that.

The price varies depending on the length of time that you wish to hire the range for as well as if you wish to add the use of pistols, so, we have created the following packages:

Package 2 Package 3
Range hire Y Y
Outdoor set up Y Y
One instructor Y Y

If you are running a large event, want to hire the range for periods of over 6 hours or on multiple days or occasions, please contact us to discuss your exact requirements as we have other packages available in these circumstances.

 

Are there any other costs?

We believe in being open and transparent about not only the experience that you get, but also the price! We dont lure you in with a cheap deal and then charge you a fortune for the paintballs you use like most sites that charge you up to £10 per hundred paintballs!

We want you to enjoy your experience and not have to stress about the cost of the paintballs, so, we provide them at the heavily discounted cost of £3 per hundred!

As the range is mobile, we obviously have to get to you and for this reason, the price listed is for a booking within a 20 mile drive of one of our bases which are in Bridgwater (Somerset) and Warrington (Cheshire). We can and do travel all over England and Wales to provide as many people as possible with our fantastic experience; if the location is further than this, just let us know exactly where you are and we will work out the cost of getting the range to you.

Our unique shooting range along with all the other necessary equipment can be set up at any outdoor venue in England and Wales that you have permission to use from £340 for two hours.

The range can be hired for longer periods of time and the use of pistols can also be added, we have therefore created the following packages:
