Survival paintball is a really awesome paintball site that has a woodland theme of combat. They do great days out for family's, birthdays, stags ect. They even have walk on days for more advanced paintball players that meet up and play against each other. Really recommend this paintball site if you are near to the area :)

We took our two boys (ages 9 & 11) to play laser combat. We booked for two hours, which was good value for money, and enjoyed every minute. The different games and territories kept things interesting but without being too strenuous. The kit supplied was excellent and the facilities were very good. Credit to Jordan for making our visit fantastic... More

Back again for some more torture with regards to my muscles. This time we took my Mom along who is 72 years old. She did well and only missed 1 game as she was getting tired. The Staff as usual were great, very helpful, but remained professional when it came to safety. While Mom sat out of one game the... More

Went with 12 work colleagues & all in all had a good day. We were a little unfortunate that our goggles kept misting up so visibility was pretty poor for most of the day, there wasn't much that could be done about it but some of us did feel a little cheated by it, basically 4 hours of running around...

This place is great fun! We spent a very happy , but slightly mad 2 hours here with some friends. It is the bast fun ever. The owner is a lovely man, nothing phases him. The Marshall on the other hand was just the right side of seriousness incarnated which made us take the whole thing a little more seriously.... More

We played Laser tag twice on our Devon holiday last year and had a fantastic time so couldn't wait to return for another go this year. Perfect venue, brilliant staff and great value for money. Party of 7 with 3 adults and 4 kids ranging from 8 to 13 all had a great time and definitely will be returning again... More

Survival Paintball is brilliant on many levels, the natural woodlands with the occasional animal make it seem life like, while the barrel levels and capture the flag buildings let you live out your inner Soldier! Guns and ammo are both of a high standard, safety is always the marshals no.1 priority and it makes for a brilliant day out!

Went laser shooting today and loved it! Took a very mixed ability group in term of fitness age and some with leaning disabilities and everyone loved it.

Great fun. Some staff were not so helpful but majority were really happy and keen to help which made it great! Good pasties, all of us needed to buy more paintballs so it got a bit expensive but definitely needed the extra balls. I recommend getting the package with extra paint Great day! Thank you
