Our paintball site, Layer Marney, on the outskirts of Colchester, Essex offer a variety of challenging game zones to suit all player abilities. We cater for groups and individuals. This includes younger players (must be over 12 years old to play) and also walk on players. Last Sunday each month at Layer Marney are especially reserved for walk on players and pre booking is essential, we also offer low impact paintball for the young ones, age 8-11 year old only.

We have just invested in state of the art laser tag, no other venue can offer the laser tag like we do, we are the first and only site in the UK to have these state of the art taggers, once you have seen them, felt them and used them, we know you will never want to go anywhere else for your tagging games.

We aim to offer you the best paintballing and laser tag experience in the area, as well as being one of the cheapest on paintball prices, we only use good quality paintballs. Our equipment is serviced on a regular basis and kept to the highest of standards.
