Why Outdoor is Better than Indoor Paintball in Newcastle?

Planning a paintball adventure for you and your mates, but can’t decide where to go? If you’re looking for the ultimate in action and adventure – a real competitive yet fun battle experience – there’s nothing quite like outdoor. Outdoor courses are like real combat terrain, complete with buildings, shelters, hills and other aspects to challenge your strategy skills and coordination. With indoor paintball in Newcastle, you’re usually restricted to a couple of obstacles and narrow passages where there’s little challenge except being the first one to pull the trigger.

Outdoor facilities are also more likely to have enough space for a large group to book at the same time – perfect for large social or competitive groups. It’s clearly a better choice than indoor paintball if you’re looking for a real authentic experience.
