Adrenaline junkies, listen up! We’ve got just the list for you. Test your stealth, aim, and courage with a ‘friendly’ game of paintball with friends, family, or co-workers — because let’s admit it, it’s always fun to belt your friends with a paintball or two, all in good nature of course. We’ve rounded up some of the most adventurous and spookiest places to play in Auckland! Lock & load…
World Challenge Tag
Head over the bridge and up Riverhead ways to play paintball at New Zealand’s largest paintball fields. World Challenge Tag has more than 18 battlefields to chose from and available themes to suit any occasion. Whether you’re wanting to duck behind posts, shoot from trenches, or aim from the tree tops, World Challenge Tag has got you covered (in paint that is).
Asylum has everything and more for all your paintball needs. It specialises in low impact paintball games for the younger ones, stag and hens do packages for adults, and everything inbetween. Rain or shine Asylum has got your back with both indoor and outdoor battlefields, as well as party rooms and bbq areas so you can really make a day out of it!
Lock N Load Adventures
A bit closer to home, Lock N Load Adventures is just out by the airport with the ultimate adventure packages available. The multi-activity venue hosts paintball, archery, and arrow tag so there’s no time to get bored. With nine battlefields including D-Day Landing, Area 51, and The Graveyard, this is a great one for some work team building (we’re sure you can convince your boss) or a fun family day out and about.
Red Alert Paintball
Get your running shoes on because Red Alert is the ultimate outdoor paintball playground. The huge battlefield allows for heaps of paintball dodging to really test your skills. They also offer paintball grenades for when paintballs just aren’t quite cutting it anymore.
Delta Force Paintball
Take a short drive through to Woodhill and you’ll come across Delta Force Paintball. Get trained in the art of the game on the base camp before venturing out into one of the awesome themed battlefields such as “Tomb Raider” or “Resident Evil”. Their battlefields are decorated with the most realistic giant sphinxes, huts, zombies, guard towers, and barbed wire fences to really freak you out.
High-energy, full-throttle, no-mercy paintball is what Actions Paintball out in Beachlands do best. The East Auckland location hosts some of Australia and New Zealand’s biggest paintball competitions so you can play like a pro in the battlefields. They also specialise in tactical paintball—ideal for team building and strategical playing.
