“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

“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.

Brought 10 tickets for £60 as my son was wanting to have his party like he did last year with Delta Force as these can be used with them. But when I received a text message offering free entry to Delta Force these tickets were useless but on contacting them asking for a discount on my overall cost of the £60 not interested just told seperate companies and cant give discount. Its false advertising and trading standards need to be told its a joke avoid… Read Full Review

“Worst mistake ever!!!!”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Moniquel117 (1 review written)

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.

“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

“Bought a deal for 10 tickets with 1000 paintballs....”

Written on: 13/09/2014

Bought a deal for 10 tickets with 1000 paintballs. Booked it online, then got a call saying he needed a credit card info, so he could charge us £140, even though we had already paid for the paintballs and tickets. He refused to give us a refund also. NEVER go there. EVER… 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

“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.

“High Energy Fun”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by jakewhit (4 reviews written)

As far as impulsive buys go, couldn’t have got a better deal than this. Bought as a surprise for some family and friends, they took a bit of convincing but it came to less than 10 pounds a head, an absolute bargain. Booking process was relatively painless once we had decided on venue and date, IPG team were very professional and helpful. The day out itself was fantastic!! It was raining but spirits were kept high by the staff, the paintball maps were great, clearly they run a tight ship as… Read Full Review

Hi Jakewhit
10 pounds a head does sound like a bargain. I often see IPG or similar people at my supermarket and have yet to be tempted - can I ask how many paint balls did you need to buy onsite and what was the total cost per head for the day?

“TERRIBLE ”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by kuTownsend387 (1 review written)

This was for The Ballymena centre but as a group IPG have the setup all wrong. I bought the tickets and explained to the guy selling me them that I was going in Ballymena, he offered me 1000 free paintballs. Once I tried to book a date I was told I could not use my free paintballs and they could only be used in the Republic of Ireland, this is the first problem. Then after 3 days of phonecalls with the group we agreed on dates, when I tried to phone and make the deposit, I was told they would… Read Full Review

“Great purchase, competitive prices!”

Written on: 17/02/2014 by Emmapple (3 reviews written)

I bought IPG tickets for £60 while shopping in Blue Water months ago as a gift for my some of my friends and I. It was a great deal, the tickets were discounted from £300 and it worked out really cheap per person. The guys were very professional and friendly and answered our questions with great detail. They gave great information on what was going to happen on the day and we were really impressed with the game zones and the whole day out event. The tickets are the best value for money on… Read Full Review

I have been looking around to take my son paintballing because his been nagging me he wants to go. It seemed like a rather pricey day out for a group and I am covering the costs. I saw these guys with tickets and it really was the best value I had seen since looking around. £60 for entrance and equipment for 10 poeple and they get 1000 paintballs for a bonus game, and when booking you do need to buy 100 paintballs for each of the players your booking in, which is fair enough because you get… Read Full Review
