Military Mayhem gives your team a double order of adrenaline; a Tank Paintball Battle and a Woodland Paintball session. Access to our Military Museum is also included. This action packed activity day will last around 6 hours and can be run for groups from 3 to 80 people.
This activity, in a nutshell, has you split into teams of 3. Each person learns to manoeuvre the tank around the track, charge and load the cannon, aim and fire the paintballs.
After a team discussion, you will head into battle against another tank. Don’t worry if your numbers are not divisible by 3, we have plenty of ways to make any number from 3-80 work for this activity.
Our world-renowned, unique, Tank Paintball Battle experience gives you the chance to learn to control an FV432 tank around our ex-World War II bombing ground, which we have turned into two tank tracks. We will split your group into 3-man crews each with its own dedicated Instructor. After you have mastered the controls and have become used to heading full pelt into a dip, bouncing your crew around in their turret seats, and keeping the acceleration to come back up the other side, it’s time to drive in battle conditions.
With the lid closed, your only viewpoint is through the telescope above your head. Looking through a screen just 10cm wide and 5cm tall gives a very different perspective on the world! Judging distance over the rugged terrain of our track takes a bit of practice, but our FV432s have seen much worse and will keep you upright. These machines are quite remarkable when it comes to a centre of gravity that keeps you the right way up!
After each member of your crew has driven and become accustomed to the controls of your tank, it’s off for some shooting practice. Parked up opposite our static targets of a disused tank and a huge bull’s-eye target, your instructor will explain how to manoeuvre the cannon into position, to charge and load and then to fire the giant paintballs. What is easy for some is impossible for others. What will be your strength? Will you be a driver? Will you be the quick-handed charge and loader with precision and attention to detail? Or will you have an eye for the target and be the sharpest shot on the track?
Next it’s time for your battle. Heading to the far side of the track, each tank will take up their starting position. From there, it’s a race to position one, at which point your fire crew will aim, load and fire their first cannon at the enemy tank. With one point for each direct hit, although speed is important, precision and timing are of equal focus. A second paintball is shot at the same position before they shout through the tank to ‘GO GO GO!’ and it’s on to position two. Getting into position first provides an advantage, as you are able to shoot at the enemy tank as they arrive at the checkpoint and start to ready themselves for their shots. If you can shoot and be gone before they are ready, their chances of a direct hit on you are significantly reduced.
With 6 checkpoints in the battle, 12 shots will be fired at your enemy tank in total. With the winning crew being the one with the highest number of direct hits, bragging rights back at HQ for those with the best record will only be outlived by the smiles etched on your faces. The instructors, however, are very much focused on their season score so will certainly be very supportive and excited by direct hits!! The instructor league is a heavily guarded secret until the end of the season, but you might be able to tease some information out of your tank instructor…
Activity Two: Woodland Paintball
We all know what paintball is... dress up in army gear, grab a paintball marker (that's the bit that looks like a gun), run around the woods and try to avoid being shot somewhere painful!! Getting hit does smart a little, but that's soon forgotten when laughing takes over!
At Chaos Paintball, we have the natural woods to provide cover and a load of extra items to hide behind and include in the games. We will include a variety of landscapes where the object of the game changes from defending or attacking a particular point or area, capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area or guarding a hostage.
The per person charge includes all the equipment you need:
- 500 balls
- Semi-automatic gun
- Unlimited gas refills
- Full face Goggles
- Body armour (females only)
- Head protection
- Padded NBC suit
Our Woodland Paintball games include; our famous Landing Craft Assault, Battle Bus, Missile Base, Bunker of Death, Speedball, Bamboo Fort, Radar and Convoy.
Your activity day will include up to 6 games.
Additional Activity information
Woodland paintball is an outside activity where paintballs are fired directly at one another. Although protective clothing is provided, a direct hit does sting and can cause bruising. This activity is more suited to a physically able and active corporate group.
