Ghantoot has a new Battle Park UAE

The largest paintball and airsoft field in the Middle East has opened in Abu Dhabi

Do you feel the need? The need to blow off steam as you shoot paint pellets at masked rivals? Okay, that’s not quite how Maverick and Goose put it in Top Gun, but the sentiment is there. And there’s no better place to take aim than at the new Battle Park UAE, out in Ghantoot, that stretches across a whopping 500,000 sq ft, making it the largest paintball and airsoft field in the Middle East. That itself is a pretty big reason to check it out, surely.

The park features seven themed fields – including Castle Siege, Desert Storm, Forest Fire and Junkyard Raid (the latter is kitted out with metal scraps, vandalised cars and empty oil barrels). Groups are given special missions they need to successfully complete before they can earn bragging rights.

So, round up your mates (or, people you don’t like) and get ready to shoot them.

From Dhs80 (100 paintballs, park admission and equipment). Open Mon-Fri 8am-10pm, Sat 8am-midnight, Sun 8am-2pm. Battle Park UAE, Ghantoot, www.battlepark.ae (056 406 2999).
