Colourful combat: Vancouver's best paintball fields

Sneaking around boulders, hiding behind walls, getting off a shot as you’re diving to safety – there are few things that get the blood pumping more than the thrill of a paintball war. Suit up at Vancouver’s best paintball places and make victory yours.

Shock Entertainment Ltd

160-6631 Westminster Hwy, Richmond, BC V7C 4V4

The weather in Vancouver doesn’t always cooperate and it can be hard to concentrate on sighting your enemy when it’s cold and raining. Don’t leave anything in your game to chance and head indoors, especially with this paintball centre offering dozens of different games. You can book every day of the week, celebrate a birthday there and easily access it by SkyTrain or bus. Paintball gear is available to rent, as is some of the best equipment available.

Ambush Paintball

7550 160 St, Surrey, BC V3S 3T2

Since 2001, enthusiastic paintballers have made Ambush their second home, and it’s easy to see why. Wage war in one of their three rec fields designed for various different skill and experience levels. Each field features obstacles and challenges: try to conceal yourself in the trenches on Mounds Field, navigate the tree forts and barricades of the five-acre Forest Field, and jump over abandoned cars and piles of tires in Ambush City Field.

North Shore Paintball

100B Capilano Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7P 3P6

Paintball your biggest foe into last year at North Shore Paintball's outdoor fields, open year-round (weather permitting). You can stay as long as you like – or until your paint runs out – if making the perfect shot is more a matter of concentration than speed. Private bookings are available and there are special group rates for larger parties. You also always have the option of choosing to play in one of their many team games.

Call of Paintball

2203-1239 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC V6E 4R8

There are five Call of Paintball locations across B.C. including outposts in Whistler and near the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Vancouver location is indoors and open every day of the week except Tuesday, while Whistler is where you want to go to blow off steam on the weekends. If you want to make a huge event out of it, book a corporate event, stag/doe party or birthday bash.

Whether it be your difficult in-laws who are visiting, your party animal roommate from university or your workout-obsessed brother, it’s good to have a roster of fun things to do around the city when you have visitors from out of town. These Vancouver attractions will impress even your most challenging guests. [Photo © Yellow Pages / Pages Jaunes]
