I booked a party and paid the deposit 3 weeks in advance of my son's 13th birthday party. I received an emailed confirmation of the booking and my account was debited for the deposit. The day before the party I phoned the Stockport centre to check that everything was in order. The phone was not answered. On Saturday morning I got a call from Stockport. They had no booking for me on their system. They were fully booked and could not fit us in. I phoned Go Ballistic who blamed Stockport. That... (read more)

Knowsley safari park paintballin. From start to finish awful!!! It was my sons 21st birthday and booked for him and his friends to go. They changed the event time informing me that a corporate event had cancelled so I would have to change the time. So we changed the time. When my son arrived at the event the time was wrong!! They had given them the wrong time again!! The event manager asked for the paper work but we had only received a reference number. He said that wouldn't happen, and... (read more)

My sons Birthday was ruined and we then had the expense of looking to... (read more)

Horrible experience with a recommended go ballistic venue in Maidenhead. No signs whatsoever and direction given made no sense (they claimed they will send us a map which they never did), parking provided was basicly a suspension killing farm field in the middle of nowhere once again with no signs and then the venue was a dilapidated shed with 1 mind bogglingly idiotic worker that seemed without a clue and who then tried to get my group out of more money. We did not entertain this joke of a... (read more)

Avoid this company, they are terrible. They failed to make my booking, then charged me for it after the event (£150!) They are reluctant to answer difficult questions, they give contradictory answers and are not in the least bit interested in you as a customer. My advice: search online for the phone number of the site in question and call direct to cut out this pointless, time wasting middle man. I know I wish I did..... (read more)

I recently booked their stag package in Bournemouth. This is the first time i'd been paintballing. I booked and as there was 28 people booking I negotiated 2 free spaces. I enquiried about the stag package at £34.95 per person, they confirmed that on the 'BASIC FEES' 2 people would be free. I'd also previously received an email quote from them quoting for 28 people at £34.95. The quote explained that any extra paintballs could be purchased at an extra cost. With this in mind I assumed that... (read more)

I rang Go Ballistic to see if the date and time I wanted for my son's birthday were available. I was told they were and advised to book online. I booked online and Go Ballistic took my money. Three hours later they rang me to say the date and time were now not available.They offered an alternative site halfway across Manchester(2hr bus journey-I don't drive)when the one I booked at is a walkable distance. I told them I was cancelling and asked for a refund but they said they couldn't refund... (read more)

Well, let me start with the background story. For my birthday my sister booked and paid for me and 11 of my friends to go paintballing using the 'go ballistic' website. She booked a full day which was £10 per person which gave us 100 free paintballs to start with and a free lunch. Upon arrival at the site, despite £10 per person, none of us were entitled to 100 free paintballs or even a free lunch like it advertised which meant we had to pay more money! Basically this pitiful website had... (read more)

My son has been dying to go paintballing and when I finally said yes he was over the moon. I booked with Go Ballistic and what a nightmare this was. The booking office didn’t know what was going on, couldn’t provide me with proper information without having to put me on hold at least 3 times. When I got to the centre I was shocked at the state of the facilities and the amount of money I had spent on this. This definitely not what I was expecting. When I called to complain, all they...

I had a weekend arranged in Kent for a bit of a lads weekend away. We had a hotel booked and then looked to book activities. Go Ballistic Airsoft in Tonbridge looked promising so I went through their website to book. They said they do all Sundays, which suited us perfectly. So I booked my Sunday session and rang them up to pay the deposit. The next day, they send me this: "I have spoke to my site managers and they have decided to run the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month only, Would your... (read more)

This company are an intermediary agent for the site i went to ... Wolverhampton. Whilst the site was fantastic and have no complaints about them, Goballistic charged me £7.50 per child for an entry fee that didn't exist. The site do not get any of this money and if i phoned them directly I would only have been charged for the game the children played (pay as you play), which is what i paid the site for anyway. DO NOT use these agents, phone the site directly, they are a rip off. (read more)

I booked and paid for £250's worth of paintballing for my son's 15th birthday party, but would never use Go Ballistic again! Not only are they more expensive than other providers - who we have since found are better - but they mucked up our booking, which meant we had to attend a site that wa further away, and the 1.00-4.00 session ended at 3.15.

This was a complete waste of money! We went for a friends birthday and got ripped off! They use a small woodland area which has been divided up using 'rope'. You turn up and it looks like hillbillies own the premises with rubbish everywhere, smashed cars, etc. The staff were extremely ignorant and every other word that came out of the lady's mouth was a bad word. Seriously I've never used the word 'cowboys' to describe anyone but I now completely understand what people mean by that and if... (read more)

My parents wanted to take the kids for a fun day out when we went up north to visit them recently. We thought Go Ballistic would be the best option since they were the closest to my parents place. We've been with another paintball provider back home, and figured it'd be at least as good - especially when they boast to be the UKs largest paintball network! How wrong we were! Firstly, we got to a centre in complete shambles. Although I don't expect anyone to greet us by name, it would have... (read more)

Paid for 5 12 years olds to visit the Northwich site. Staff were pleasant with me (the adult) but were rude an awful with the kids. They were only interested in the over 18's and we were left with the kids unable to play the last 2 games as they were for the over 18's. The staff promised to take the kids to the "range" to fire their last painballs but never did. Each child was left with around £14 worth of painballs they were ordered to bin. Rip off. Don't go there! (read more)

I had even called them on Wednesday to make sure and apparently is was cancelled on Tuesday !!!!

Booked and paid for paintballing several months out, got confirmation, directions etc. Turned up on day, after a couple hours drive, to find paintballing was cancelled without notifying us??!! Phoned their customer services who informed us that they'd phoned and spoken to me earlier in the week to tell us it was cancelled - obviously no such phone call took place - very poor do not book with these cowboys.

You just can't beat Go Ballistic in the UK. I have now been to 6 of their sites and they are the dog's bo....cks.
These guys have been in paintball for years and actually play themselves at league level - they are paintballers running paintball for paintballers. They have a huge number of sites and I intend to play them all - before their cheap offers ends I reckon.
Try Bricketwood in St Albans - what a day me and guys had there!!
I found the booking process dead easy - online availability... (read more)

I booked with Go Ballistic for my friends birthday weekend, there were 22 of us. I have to say it was so easy and efficient, the people on the phone knew so much and were really friendly. My booking was confirmed quickly and i was sent everything i needed to find the paintball place. We had such a great time at the go ballistic paintball Bournemouth, the people running the games were amazing and made sure the birthday boy had a day we'll never forget! We are already putting a list together... (read more)

Me and a couple of friends went to Go Ballistic in Ashford for a 21st birthday party. The site itself was ok and with some basic facilities, the staff were friendly enough but we had problems with the kit they gave us.
The paintball prices were a joke. It was £7 or £8 per 100 and the staff said that we would need at least 100 per game. Most of us only brought around £20 with us so we only played three or four games before deciding to leave. The games weren't great either and our guns either... (read more)

The site itself (Hurn)was okay with a few basic setups village, fort and hamburger hill.
The staff were disorganised and we only managed 4 games in an afternoon waiting 1 - 1hr 15mins for each 15 min game! Place was very busy and staff numbers were low. Prices were average.
Will try other companies in future. (read more)

Went to the " Go Ballistic " paintball site in Northwich. I found the parking adequate, the event was badly organised, the staff were rude & consistently swearing (with 12 years old present, this is not really expectable). None of there equipment worked as the guns jammed every 5 mins & then when the guns ran out of gas even though we still had paintballs left over the gas was not refilled by staff!!! No refund, apology offered when complaint made. Very disappointing!! (read more)
