There are few things that excite red blooded men more than firearms. There are few things that excite women more than the prospect of shooting red blooded men with firearms. Add to that a safe, fun environment and the guarantee of some hardcore stories to tell (and bruises to show) and you've got an awesome weekend ahead of you.
Paintball has long been a rite of passage for young adults, a boozy bonding session for mates and the first choice for many a bucks party. The fact is, it's good fun for just about anyone. Anyone who's old enough, that is...
The first thing which must be said about paintball is that the age restrictions are there for a reason. Paintball guns are classified as firearms in Australia, and the potential for misuse means distribution is restricted. In the right hands, though, they can provide hours of high adrenalin fun.
There are many great places for paintball in and around Sydney, including Action Paintball, Rouse Hill; Paintball Pete's, Mt. White (just north of Sydney); Heartbreak Ridge Paintball, Marsden Park and Camden Paintball, Camden. All of these places are safety concious, with a minimum age of 16. They are ideal for bucks and hen parties, or just an exciting weekend outing.
