Shiloh484's review of Go Ballistic www.goballistic.co.uk


“Misleading and poorly organised”

Written on: 23/02/2020 by Shiloh484 (1 review written)

The company have vague terms and conditions around the point of sale which leads to unrealistic expectations.

"100 paintballs included, free lunch" turns out to be no free lunch and the paintballs will only be provided if you are exactly on time arriving to a remote hard to find location in the woods.

The staff were very unprofessional and made some odd comments about drugs which were completely out of place and not funny.

The day wasn't very well run where we had to wait around for 20-30 minutes between each game and initially getting started we waited for around 1 hour.

The worst part of the day was that staff let their cousin join the games, seemingly for free with expert paintball equipment and unlimited ammo. Whichever team he was on would win and it ruined the experience for everyone else who were mostly new, inexperienced players.

The equipment was fairly poor, the guns would regularly fire out 3 paintballs at a time that shoot 1 meter ahead. The paintballs cost almost £10 for 100 and you need 300-500 for the entire day so you're looking at a cost of £30-£60 for the day depending on how conservative you are.

Someone saw one of the staff throwing a needle in to a lake on one of the arenas, presumably this was from drug users hanging around the grounds, this was very worrying and could lead to a serious infection such as HIV or Hepatitis. This will be reported to the relevant authorities.

Some parts of the day were fun but sadly it was let down by the unprofessional, lazy and rude staff and intentionally misleading pricing model.
