Junior Groups (8-16 Years)

Join In With All The Fun and Games!

Are your parents constantly giving you grief about sitting in front of the TV all the time! We can understand the dedication required to take out those virtual bad guys in Call of Duty™ and the like, or keeping up with your favourite TV series.

How about some fresh air, exercise, hot food and getting out of your parents feet for a few hours, and who knows they might even stump up the cash! Just put down those Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers, grab some friends and guide your parents over to our website and we’ll do our best to persuade them how both Paintball and Low Impact Paintball can be great fun!

Birthday Groups

People of all ages organise birthday parties here with us at Bristol Activity Centre. And what could be more fun than running around shooting all your friends and family in the safe and supervised environment of our game zones – a unique way to celebrate your birthday!

We are also always happy to consider and facilitate any “special requests” from our guests to help make a special day even more special. These may include organising a surprise cake, or putting up balloons and banners etc.

Check out our “Paintball Party Invites” for you to print off and use to invite your friends…

Information For Parents and Guardians

Please ensure that there is at least one responsible adult in attendance to ensure that all the children participating have understood our pre-activity safety briefing, and to ensure that they are booked in.

Parental/Guardian consent forms are to be filled in “after” the children have watched our safety briefing.

Once this is done, the group can then be left in the capable hands of our staff until the end of the session. Although we do recommend that at least 1 or 2 parents remain at the centre whilst the children play.


Although Paintball and Low Impact Paintball are not inherently dangerous! Bristol Activity Centre takes safety very seriously, and we have a first class safety record. Parents often comment that we take safety more seriously than many other Paintball providers.

All participants receive a safety briefing for each activity they participate in – whether Paintball and/or Low Impact Paintball etc. This way we can be certain that young participants especially, are clear on how to stay safe, and how to keep their friends safe too.

Players will then be divided into teams, with different coloured wrist bands and gun colour. When everyone is ready, a senior staff member will then explain how to use the equipment. And then the battles shall commence – with all games fully supervised by our trained instructors.

We’re Accredited!

Bristol Activity Centre is an “accredited” member of the United Kingdom Paintball Sports Federation (UKPSF) and adheres to their strict code of practice.

In order to hold accredited status, we have had to pass a rigorous site accreditation scheme, and must continue to maintain high standards of safety, equipment, staff training, site services and customer satisfaction. As well as having public liability insurance, an agreed level of first aid cover and staffing levels.

What To Wear

We supply all standard equipment, and all-in-one coveralls for the children to wear over the top of their own clothing.

We also supply as standard, full-head Paintball goggles that are fitted and checked by our staff to ensure that they fit correctly and safely, and are comfortable to wear.

All participants will need to be wearing suitable footwear, like walking boots – and perhaps a good pair of gloves. We do additionally hire armoured Paintball gloves for £2 per person, or they can also be purchased from our on-site shop for £5 a pair.

We would also suggest that bringing a change of clothing might be a good idea.

Food and Drink

As well as our fantastic ‘Meal Deal’ offer, which can be purchased as an optional extra on all of our packages. We also offer a wide range of food and drinks from our on-site shop. Information about our ‘Meal Deal’ offer and additional menu listing – with pricing – can be found on our pricing page.

We politely ask that only food purchased from our on-site shop is consumed on our premises. Unless it’s for a special occasion such as a birthday party, and you wish to provide a birthday cake.

Children With Disabilities

Paintball and Low Impact Paintball are both physically demanding and require a certain level physical ability.

While we always welcome players with disability. Both the player(s) and their parents or guardians need to be aware of the nature of Paintball and the terrain that we play on. And therefore make a subsequent assessment of their ability to safely enjoy the activity they wish to pursue, based upon their own physical ability and overall disability.

School and College Groups.

Ideal for school outings and activity days, Bristol Activity Centre has specially designed “Young Guns” game scenarios for 8+ year olds (Low Impact Paintball) and 16+ year olds (Paintball). Players will be totally supervised as they are put through their paces and experience the excitement of either paintball and Low Impact Paintball.

An informative safety briefing and game advice is always given before the action commences. Games are designed to develop teamwork, communication skills and leadership qualities in an entertaining, exciting and fun atmosphere.

Furthermore, an activity day with Bristol Activity Centre forges closer relationships between students and staff, as groups and parties are our speciality.

“… We just wanted to thank you for an excellent day on Wednesday. To be honest, the thought of taking nearly 200 students paintballing was a bit daunting. However thanks to you, your efficient organisation of activities and food and your wonderful staff, we had a really good day and felt safe and secure at all times.

Hopefully we can come back next year. Thanks again…”
