Shoot to thrill at Abu Dhabi’s newest paintball centre
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.
