“You will pay more than you expect, lots more.”

Written on: 21/08/2015 by Jermaine83 (1 review written)

A guy sold us some tickets for this, he didn't say ALL the T&Cs for booking and playing. It looks cheap, but you will pay even for breathing, so please, do yourself a favor, find another company with fair prices, not all hidden fees. NOT RECOMMENDED!!… Read Full Review

“Absolute Lie!!!”

Written on: 21/07/2015 by cwThomson423 (1 review written)

They just lie to you about everything!! Free Balls, No Hidden costs, We've never done a deal like this before, etc. Absolute deception at it's best!! The people that are selling this rubbish just seem really nice so you just believe them cause you just don't believe that people would lie like that. Also the problem is that your probably not going to search them until you realise you have well and truly been ripped off!! If you are smart and have searched them before you've been deceived… Read Full Review

“What a rip off”

Written on: 02/07/2015 by AMR63 (1 review written)

It all sounds great when they miss-sell this to you, by the time you realise that you have to stay there all day to get the free extra 100 balls when you book a day, it's then too late to get a refund, fell completely ripped off and will never use them again, the only reason they got one star is because that is the minimum i'm allowed to give… Read Full Review

“when an offer is too good to be true it is !”

Written on: 24/06/2015 by 226Graves (1 review written)

Wish I'd read this review before being ripped off like everyone else on here. Makes me feel a bit better that I'm not alone. I bought 20 tickets for £60 and was told I was getting 2000 free paintballs. I think these people pray on those in supermarkets (in our case Sainsbury foyer) as they know people are often in a rush. They never told me about the compulsory £9.99 per head for the first 100 paintballs but I thought it's still worth it as we get another 100 each free. Only on the back of… Read Full Review

Got ripped by them inside tesco. Paid £250 for 20 tickets & got sucked into 2000 free balls, like everyone else had the same problem. They should be on watchdog & should refund everyone's money. … Read Full Review

“Not the deal you are expecting - shop around”

Written on: 22/02/2015 by Nathanaelj332 (1 review written)

I was met outside Morrisons in 2014 by an IPG salesman. I was hooked by the 'amazing deal' of £30 tickets for £6 each (10 for £60). Then he offered an even better deal if I bought 20 for £120 and I would get another 10 ‘free' plus 3000 free paintballs which works out as £4 a ticket. Let me explain what happens after taking your bargain tickets home with you:  - This entry ticket includes NO starter paintballs (only my free ones, which in turn can only be claimed in the 11th game and… Read Full Review

“ABSOLUTE RIP OFF”

Written on: 24/12/2014 by 305Murphy-Alt (1 review written)

Canary Wharf Tube station - I was on my way home, I run a large Bootcamp in London and thought what a nice gift for my Bootcampers. I was sold 30 tickets which he made out was a fantastic deal including the WHOLE day out, but failed to tell me that to reserve my spot I had to pay £10 per head over the phone, thats an extra £300 on top of what I'd already spent. When I rang to complain and get my money back, they said I had gone over the 7 day refund time frame and I would have to write to… Read Full Review

I had the same issue. Not only is it another £10 per head just to book, on top of what you've already paid, but you would then need at least 1000 paintballs, (which they fail to mention, are NOT INCLUDED!) costing you a further £69.90 per head.

“Don't even bother”

Written on: 06/12/2014 by Saul9 (1 review written)

I got approached and sort of forced into buying these tickets from a salesman in my local centre. He dragged the price down to £30 for 10 entry tickets. He told me about all the additional costs, that we would need to pay for paintballs and food etc, but when I looked online, I saw that it was free to enter at the centre I wanted to play at and I'd just given over £30 for nothing. I contacted IPG to ask for a refund and they told me that the manager wasn't in the office so they couldn't do… Read Full Review

“IPG Paintball”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by glen adams (1 review written)

Saw a woman in Chelmsford in the Meadows Shopping Centre just outside BHS. I was looking for a birthday treat for my partners birthday and was looking to spend around 150 for 10 kids total. Up she popped a woman called Suzie, so I was told and nothing from that point was true apart from the £60 fee as appose to £300 that we were getting for value. I thought great, the kid likes Call of Duty on the Xbox so I thought I would treat him. I paid in cash and she started to spill out the blurb… Read Full Review

“Do not trust them. Do not be taken in!!”

Written on: 10/11/2014

Here's what they do ! They were at the entrance to a Super Market, offering discounted tickets to go Paint Balling. My Son's Birthday was close and I explained we had a budget of £100 for an event. The guy said that was easily achievable because he would discount 10 tickets that were normally £30 each to £6 each and throw in 1000 paint balls. He pressured me to pay there and then. It was good I didn't. Here's why! When you 'Carefully' check out their site the ticket (£60) are just for… Read Full Review

“WASTE OF MONEY”

Written on: 04/11/2014 by Kason97 (1 review written)

Ignore the 5 star ratings. These are done by IPG employees or really stupid people. They charge for entry (Ticket Books) on places that dont even have an entry free and add a surcharge to your booking when you can go directly to the paintball venue cheaper. KEEP CLEAR AND LET EVERYONE KNOW. … Read Full Review

“Its all true!! Do not hand any money over!!!”

Written on: 27/10/2014

This company were outside my local Tesco, stupidly I thought that becuase they were there, they would be a reputable company checked by Tesco.....how wrong I was. Please don't be taken in by this company as I was. I paid £61.99 for 20 paintball tickets which I was told would include 2000 free paintballs. What I was not told was that for every person playing I would have to pay £9.99 for the first 100 paintballs and that the free paintballs were for the last game only and would only be… Read Full Review

if you paid by credit card and the total cost was over £100, then claim a refund from your credit card provider saying the goods were not as explained or described to you and cite section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 which makes your credit card provider jointly and severally liable as the retailer.

You don't even have to have reached an impasse with the retailer to exercise your rights under the Consumer Goods Act.

Unfortunately, it was not over £100. It was £62. I have since found out that what they sold me was worthless as most paintball centres make the majority of their money from the paintballs.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I purchased 10 free paintballing tickets plus 2000 free paintballs for £60. When it cane round to booking my day I had to pay a further £70 for me and my 6 players for our first 100 paintballs and because I didnt have the full 10 players I got told I would not get my 2000 paintballs as promised but 100 free paintballs per player for the whole day instead. When I asked to speak to the Manager she tried fobbing my off with "we cannot alter the package details". Do not go to IPG VIP. They are… Read Full Review

“Secret costs, ripped me off.”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by adzyg (1 review written)

My birthday was coming up and i had thought about doing paintball with a couple of mates. When there was a stand at my university they sold it saying it was really cheap so we bought 20 tickets for £120 so £6pp with 2000 balls thrown in. This was what i was told and that seems like a decent deal to me. The salesman told us to just ring up to book a date and its as easy as that. So i go to ring up everything's fine until they ask me to pay a further £200 for the £9.99 booking fee with 100… Read Full Review

“IPG Great Value!”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by mr.goulding (1 review written)

I was more than happy with my purchase of IPG VIP tickets, bought from the Bluewater shopping centre last month. After acquiring the tickets I was worried the paintball venues would be average (and IPG had just given me some clever marketing) but the day and the venue more than lived up to my expectations. Incredible playing arenas and great fun for me and my friends. You really do get an all day event with this package. The staff also showed a lot of dedication and obviously loved their job… Read Full Review

Hi Mr Goulding - I often see IPG at my local supermarket. I'm worried about the poor reviews I have read about them. How many paint balls did you need to buy at the venue and all told how much did you and your friends spend on the day?

I have been looking around for the best deal for Paintball, I have heard how expensive it can be when hosting a birthday party. My son just won;t let the paintballing idea alone for his birthday party. I was at tesco doing my evening shop when on my way out i see some guys standing with a paintball set up. i had to check it out well my son wouldn't let me just go to the car. Turns out it was actually quite a good deal and we had Jacobs birthday party last weekend and he had the time of his life… Read Full Review

Hi melash. I am considering doing a similar bash for my son's next birthday. How many paintballs did you need to buy on the day and what was the total cost for the day?

“Book independently DO NOT give your money to these...”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Abigail130 (1 review written)

Book independently DO NOT give your money to these people. Booked a group of ten 14year olds a birthday gift. When I organised it with one of the sales people was ensured several times that the booking he was taking would not have any hidden costs over and above my £100. Just booked my sons date with the booking office and have had to lash out another £9.99 per child for the first 100 paint balls Bye Bye the first hidden £99.90 OH and the booking office wanted to charge another five quid for… Read Full Review

Your so right about these guys having hidden costs we paid for 30 tickets I think we have been ripped off and now we have to pay extra per person when we book.
