What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE - Bat­tle Park UAE, Ghan­toot, Abu Dhabi, Mon to Fri 8am to 10pm, Sat 8am to mid­night, Sun 8am to 2pm, Dhs80 to Dhs450. Tel: (056) 4062999. Taxi: Ghan­toot, near the Golden Tulip ho­tel. bat­tlepark.ae

Paint­ball fans have a new place to go and splat­ter their mates: Bat­tle Park UAE is the lat­est paint­ball and air­soft park to open in the Mid­dle East, and what’s more, it’s also the re­gion’s big­gest – its themed play­ing fields cover a whop­ping half a million square feet of land in Ghan­toot.

You’ll find it near to Blue Mar­lin Ibiza and there are six themed zones in­side. Zom­bie Wars takes place on a play­ing field full of grave­stones, while Ur­ban fea­tures a se­lec­tion of small houses sol­diers can duck in and out of to gain a tac­ti­cal ad­van­tage over op­po­nents. Cas­tle Siege is full of tun­nels, while Junk­yard is lit­tered with car wrecks that play­ers use for cover. They also have an in­door area, which we think you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate dur­ing sum­mer.

There are sev­eral pack­ages avail­able to wannabe Ram­bos, with names such as In­fantry, Ranger and Mer­ce­nary. The In­fantry pack­age costs Dhs80 and you get 100 paint­balls in the price, plus over­alls, a mask, a chest pro­tec­tor and un­lim­ited CO2 for your gun. The most ex­pen­sive pack­age, Mer­ce­nary, costs Dhs450 and you get 1,000 paint­balls in the price, over­alls and a mask and chest pro­tec­tor, but you also get a neck pro­tec­tor, padded gloves and a drink as well.
