Whatever the occasion, be it a birthday, team building exercise or stag or hen party, the Wild Park Derbyshire staff have the experience and skill to make sure your day runs perfectly and to make sure that everyone has a day to truly remember.

So what is so special about Wild Park Derbyshire?

Since we started the paintball site over 25 years ago, the industry has experienced massive growth and with so many more paintball sites starting up, the opportunity to play paintball has never been so great. Having sampled some of these sites, we are confident that our site ranks with the best and there are a lot of reasons for that:

Customer care is our number one priority. We appreciate you coming and we want you to come back – we have many people who regularly return to Wild Park Derbyshire year on year and many of our customers visit due to a personal recommendation.

We treat it as a day out in the country! A bacon buttie mid-morning followed by a home-cooked beef stew and jacket potato for lunch, along with tea and coffee available all day are the basic ingredients  to add to your activity to make it an experience you would want to repeat – (see our prices page to see the various different packages that we have to offer you).

Good kit and top of the range goggles are essential to enjoying your day. You need to feel safe and comfortable after all so that’s what we provide.

Our staff are highly trained and highly motivated to enable you to enjoy the whole experience. We have rarely had to recruit and instead are able to pick from the cream of the crop who approach us after coming as paying customers! This enables to maintain our wpd-logo-300incredibly high standards and we really are like one big family.

Our facilities are second to none. We have a modern, comfortable headquarters where you spend the day; it is completely enclosed so if the Great British weather isn’t playing ball you will have shelter to relax between games. It also has a purpose built toilet block with running water and flushing toilets, all to make your day more comfortable.

We continually invest in our game zones to keep them superb. We have a mature wood with streams, ponds and ravines to make your day truly memorable. We encourage tactical manoeuvres rather than just blasting paint at each other. Pride of place is still the 30 foot Tower in Death Valley. Customers come back time and time again ‘to take the Tower’. Coming this year will be a new game zone featuring 3 full sized helicopters!

Once you have finished your activity, we have separate changing rooms with sports centre standard showers and flushable toilets so you don’t have to drive home (or after a stag or hen party go into town) looking dirty and wet!! And if you forget your towel – don’t sweat it! Hire a freshly laundered towel and some shower gel from us!
