    Action Paintball & Lastertag

    Fun-filled, action-packed paintball and lasertag

    PAINTBALL

    Sneaking through the bush. All’s quiet, where is everyone? A twig snaps to your right. You sink slowly to the ground scanning the bush. Nothing but your heart beating, sweat trickling down your spine, eyes and ears straining to pinpoint movement or sound. Bang, zzzzziip. A paintball whips past your shoulder. Dive, roll onto your knees.  Another paintball splatters against the tree next to your head. Duck!!  Laughter to your left. Spin, movement, shoot. Splat!! “Ouch” and your opponent is out of the game. Relief and adrenalin pump through your body as you realise that you have survived your first contact in a Paintball Game.

    Suitable for players from age 11, all the way up to Granddad.  Fee per player is R 170.00 per AM or PM session which includes the paintball gun, Co2 gas for the session, full facemask, throat protector and the first 100 paintballs.  Extra paintballs available at R 35 per 100 ( IE: R175 per factory sealed bag of 500).

    LASERTAG

    Enjoy both the mental and physical thrill of taking on the ‘enemy’ in a safe, exciting and environmentally friendly way.  We play in a bush field with a rest area under the shelter of pine trees, having an area of thick bush for the sneaky shooters and an open grassland area with minimal bush for the leopard crawlers – a really awesome tactical field with something for everyone!

    Unlike Paintball, the Lasertag gun does not shoot a projectile.  It only emits a harmless infra-red beam, so no impact or bumps. Unlimited ammunition and lives and our generation 4 systems are light and compact without cumbersome cables or sensor head bands and vests.

    Different team and individual game formats including President, Medic and Assassin keep players entertained throughout the session.

    Shoot and watch your opponents gun flash and beep as it is disabled and he is eliminated from the game.

    We run Lasertag games during the week and on Saturdays and Sundays. Weekdays are more flexible so contact us for your requirements. Saturdays and Sundays run at the scheduled times given below.
