Yorkshire Paintball and Outdoor Activity Centre

The Yorkshire Paintball and Outdoor Activity Centre started out in 1988 as a pure Paintballing venue. Since then we have introduced a number of new and exciting outdoor activities. These include Airsoft, Knife and Axe throwing, Archery, Air Rifle Shooting and Battle Zone Archery for players over 12 years and for the kids, we have introduced childrens parties. These start at school year 1 and include Nerf Wars, Laser Tag and Junior Paintball. We also host two Airsoft clubs for players with their own kit, Halo Mill Proving Grounds and the 6mm Airsoft Club.

Airsoft in Yorkshire

Airsoft is very similar to paintball but the guns are a lot more realistic. The ammo used is much smaller than a paintball, but just as bio degradable so airsoft is environmentally friendly as well as being fun. The fully auto machine gun that each player is given to use is great fun and will absolutely bring a smile to your face. If you have played “Call of Duty” on the PC, then why not give it a go in real life. A new event at the Yorkshire Paintball Centre.

Laser Tag is one of our newest events. Grab your camo and your laser gun and it’s off to the future of combat games. Each Laser gun will shoot up to half a mile so you don’t have to do much running around if you are cunning. You can’t outrun the speed of light.

Battle Zone Archery

Battle Zone Archery

Battle Zone Archery is archery but with a twist. You don’t shoot at targets, you shoot at each other so it’s more of a sport than a passtime. We use specially designed bows and arrows to make it possible to actually hunt your friends. Each event is split into matches. When you are hit, you are out of that match, but if one of your team hits a crystal skull, one of your team can re enter the game. Catch an arrow in mid air and you can bring back all of your eliminated team mates. Something a bit different to paintball. Unique to the Yorkshire Paintball Centre.
