Worlds Largest Paintball Bridge

Paintball games on the worlds biggest paintball bridge.

If you book your event at the Yorkshire Paintball Centre, we have something special for you to play paintball games on and around.

During your day you will play in the “Bridge” field. At its centre is the world’s biggest paintball bridge. It stands at over 50 feet tall and well over 300 feet long. We’ve been in touch with paintball media in the USA (The home of immense paintball structures), and they have not heard of a more enormous bridge.

We play a standard two-flag game on the bridge field. It’s fitting to play the world’s first paintball game on the world’s biggest bridge.

Not for you if you are afraid of heights!!

Going the extra mile with Guns

Between EVERY game, one of our trained Field Marshals has one job and one job only. This marshal checks every single gun. Ensuring it’s clean, safe, efficient and optimal in every way. 

When this trained marshal is 100% happy with a gun, they will place it onto the gun racks, ready for your next game. 

We are the only paintball centre in the UK to go this far and do this to make sure your day is the best possible. If you regularly play paintball games, you will understand how important this facility is.

Competition Guns

Competition Paintball Guns at the Yorkshire Paintball Centre

We use the latest competition paintball guns at Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park.
These are not like other “Site Guns”. These are genuine competition-grade paintball guns. They are extraordinarily accurate and reliable. The quality of the paintball gun is essential within paintball. If you have the best guns available, and they are checked and cleaned between every game, you can be confident that when you need to take that all-important shot, you will have the hardware to do it.

Goggles Checks EVERY Day

Yorkshire Paintball Centre goggles checked every day.

Much like the guns, we check every pair of goggles daily to ensure they are perfect. We will not compromise your safety or your enjoyment under any circumstances. Your goggles will be safe, well-fitted, and clean, and the lens will not be damaged.
All of our goggles are fitted with “Thermal” lenses. These are like double glazing, so don’t fog up.

Dedicated Host & Paintball Field Marshalls

This marshal has one job during your event: to look after your every need. This host marshal will be in the safe area to answer any questions you may have, offer tips and help on playing, and ensure you are ready for the next game.
