Ideal for business team building exercises and fun days out with friends, paintball provides plenty of exercise with a chance to learn new skills while having a laugh. However, based in a historic location, Chester firm Outpost Paintball offers its own original take on the competitive shooting sport.
Located between Wrexham and Chester on the Cheshire and North Wales Border, the company is run and owned by paintballers. With an understanding that no one wants to miss out on the fun, it provides experiences for ages 11 and up, but also low impact games for those who are eight years old or over.
Among the many unique characteristics of Outpost Paintball is its base. Games take place in and around a disused Anti-Aircraft (AA) installation constructed during the Cold War to protect Chester, Liverpool, Wrexham and the Wirral from a nuclear attack. The team at Outpost has expanded on the location to create a diverse range of scenarios each delivering a different challenge. Zones available include historic trenches with a World War I theme, post-apocalyptic ruins of the future and “The graveyard”.
On arrival, the team kits out all groups with everything they need (except courage!). As a result, full face masks, guns and loaders can be hired, and compressed air marker refills are supplied for free.
An eco-friendly firm, Outpost Paintball doesn’t use CO2 to fire markers. Toilet facilities and refreshments can also be found on site.
Outpost Paintball can be found on Moor Lane, Lower Kinnerton in Chester.
