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. We now offer Low-Impact paintball for 10 years plus and Laser-Tag for 7 years upwards.

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.
