kids paintball - new low impact paintball

Perfect for 8 - 11 year olds.

100% safety record with junior Paintball at Manchester Paintball arena! No accidents in three years of low-impact paintball parties.

Perfect for birthday parties of all ages from 8 years upwards.
Low impact, less pain, no fear with less bruising or marks. Just up your street if your kids are seeking the pace, atmosphere and adrenaline rush that indoor paintball has to offer and just don't want to play Laser quest in Manchester.


Mini Paintball guns use a smaller lighter paintball which means less mess and less impact area when hit. Each session occupies a two hour slot to ensure you make the most of your experience.

Due to our ongoing efforts to improve the overall safety of all of our paintball games, the smaller more manageable gun makes it easier for kids to move around the arena with ease. Protection for kids paintball is provided by a mask fitted by trained paintball staff, an armoured hood and overalls. Gloves protect hands from paint and hand shots.

£30 for 2 HOURS.
300 low impact Paintballs included
Within the two hour slot you will be given 300 paint balls and play six paintball games!

£25 for 1.5 HOURS.
200 low impact Paintballs included
Within the 1.5 hour slot you will be given 200 paint balls and play four paintball games!

Upgrade your package to include Pizza for £4 per person.
(10.5" Margherita between two people)

Groups over 12 players please call us. Pizza stock is not guaranteed unless purchased in advance and there may be a waiting list, advance orders go to the front of the queue. Including free party room use.

30 min party room use only £20 (bring your own food)
McDonald's and subway are only a short drive away, refreshments are available on-site.

Kids only groups
A minimum group size of 10 players ensures games are played with players of a similar age.

We consider low impact paintball ideal for 8 - 11 year olds, suitable for 9th birthday parties (for 8th birthdays please see our laser-tag parties).

This is still the real thing and the paintballs fire at the same speed as our standard paintball. We consider the safety of our guests our priority, especially our junior paintball players.

The party is supervised throughout by our trained staff, but we do staff according to group size so book all players in advance, yes Dad can play!!

Players must be at least 8 years of age (Strictly no 7 year olds).

Players under 16 years must have one adult group organizer present for registration.
Players aged 10 years and under must have one adult group organizer present for the duration of the activity.

Loads of fun, James ran our session and made sure things were going great. It being indoors meant the weather wasn't an issue, but the concrete was a tad unforgiving. Brilliant overall, anyone that's not tried it should definitely give it a go.

The guy we had taking us through the day was awesome - went above and beyond to make sure the day was spot on. Young lad with short black hair - can't remember his name. We went at 2pm on 4th November as part of my mates stag do. We all had an awesome time made better by the guy running the day. All staff were fun and easy going. They made clear all health and safety info and were very helpful. Will definitely return and recommend Manchester Paintball Arena to friends!
