    HISTORY- this now abandoned paintball battlefield was created in 2008 on the hilly terrain of the formby pine forrest , a stone throw away from the sandy expanse of formby beach . this site was ideal for providing team building exercises for corporate parties , they also catered for school aged groups with less powerful paintguns or pretty harmless laser tag weapons , the site was made to be as realistic as possible with the added addition of obstacles , barricades ,missile sites , rocket launchers ,camouflaged bases , NAAFI , armouries and artillery pieces that look so realistic that you would struggle to tell em apart from the real thing unless you had served in the royal artillery !!!!
    on certain games they also had some big fella who would dress up as PREDATOR , his main duty was to scare the crap out of 8 year old kids from the southport n liverpool area , and pull there spines n skulls out while avoiding being shot by some paint !
    THE EXPLORE- we had planned on checking shorrocks health spa out ...but we found 3 cars in the front car park and signs of of people inside ! we nearly bumped into a cleaner and her dog bringing a bin bag down the fire escape ! ...so we went round the back of the building to scout out another point of entry , this is when we discovered the paintball area..... a good couple of hours was spent walking the mock battlefield , so a good day was still had by all !..... visited with fellow member @Cazel#HT

    Haha yeah, it used to be a good day out. I don't suppose it would be if you got your spine pulled out though...

    @scottymarkfour I would like to be in contact due to you writing incorrect comments regarding the closure of my business, the paintball site has never been closed and is always open for business. This is an act of trespassing and if the post is not removed I will be taking legal advice.

    Looking at the state of site surely one could be forgiven for thinking it was derelict.

    Any discounts for 28dl members?

    Could do with some team building on here :D

    Rather than being "Predatory" threatening Legal action for trespass on a walk in site :confused: you should maybe ask to use his pics to advertise your business a little better ? & I"m sure most members would appreciate a discount for providing their own Cammo gear ;) (if you could fit us in of course ) :thumb

    Predator eh ? being located in Formby, i"d be more scared of a 7ft Red Squirrel after my nuts :eek:

    I'm not entirely sure why this post hasn't been taken down anyway?

    I put a report up from a paintball site local to me when I was first starting out and got torn a new arsehole!

    No offence to you Scotty but it was a much more interesting site than this one too, with actual ex RAF aircraft included...

    Quite bad how PC and nicey nice 28 has become over the past few years.... If this had been posted in 2012 it'd be in the pit for sure...

    @Terry Mac - I wouldn't waste your time... The legal advice you seek is this - Pretend you never saw this post, and get back on with your day.

    You have no details as to who 'Scotty' actually is, when exactly he was there or anything, so you're pissing in the wind and wasting everybody's time, including your own tbh...
