What to expect

What to expect on the day

The easiest way to give you an idea of what to expect is to watch our trailer.

You can expect a fun filled session, unlimited paint and some exciting and challenging games.  At Gunsmoke Paintball we want you to have a great time.

We have games on our silo field, the barricade field and also the woodland field.  Each game is different and we have scenarious such as band of brothers (team with the most captured armbands wins), Supply Drop (capture fuel drums in the woods), Team Deathmatch (annihilate the other team) and Duel (team who scores most time on the buzzer wins).

Make sure you check out our gallery page for more photos of the action.

All you need to play is parental consent and a group of friends.
