To date, we’ve probably hosted hundreds, if not thousands, of organised paintball parties. Whether it’s the annual team-building office bash or the down and dirty stag weekend, where getting the groom is the name of the game, we have welcomed many groups through our gates and watched them leave with a smile. But nothing is quite as much fun as having a birthday party choose Bedlam for it’s entertainment.
There’s absolutely no doubt that paintballing birthday parties are on the rise (we’ll discuss this in more depth soon), so to us it’s not surprising that more and more teenagers and young adults decide that a day’s paintballing with their mates is how they want to spend their birthday. We reckon when it comes to organising paintball birthday parties, we’re pretty much the authority on the subject too, even if we do say so ourselves. And believe, us it can be a lot of fun organising one!
First of all, pick the right paintball site for the party. We’ve got 4 sites around Scotland, all of them run by experienced and trained paintball pros, who can kit you and your party out with the best gear and make sure you know all the dos and don’ts. Game Zone marshals are on hand to make sure that each game is played to it’s absolute max, explaining the rules and keeping an eye on everyone in the field.
But don’t think the fun has to begin once you enter the gates of Bedlam, oh no. You need to make invitations, right? Why don’t you theme your own party, like James Bond or Shaun of the Dead? Pick team names, design a cool invite and set the right tone in advance, so everyone knows exactly what they’ve got to look forward to. And don’t forget to pick the best place for afterwards; whether everyone heads back to yours, or carries on the day’s fun elsewhere. You can even mock up certificates and prizes for “Man of the Match”!
On the day though, you really don’t have to worry about a thing except getting here. We’re well stocked with food and drinks, and our marshal-to-player ratio is probably the highest you’ll find.
Basically, we do everything we can to make sure everyone has the best time possible, and if that comes with a couple of nuggets of YouTube gold, then so be it.
