Confession time. We’re all guilty of watching our favourite action movies and thinking ‘I could do that!’ Maybe you yearn for an opportunity to deliver a snappy one-liner like “go ahead, make my day” or “hasta la vista, baby”!?
Well, now’s your chance. Peel yourself off the couch, turn off Netflix and put down the Xbox controller. If you fancy yourself as the next Jason Bourne or Black Widow; it’s go time. Put your real-life combat skills to the test at Jack Splat Paintball.
For almost 20 years, Jack Splat has been the ultimate destination for heart-pounding paintball action in the Wide Bay Burnett Region. Only 15 minutes from the Bundaberg CBD and nestled in the scrub of South Bingera, Jack Splat’s grounds offer multiple scenarios for commando-style encounters in the fresh air.
There are multiple game maps and modes, each offering distinct shoot-out possibilities. Speedball is a no holds barred, Battle Royale field where no team or individual gain an advantage. Tyre Dump is, as the name suggests, a field of tyres used as barricades. This is a team-based field with a twist: each team contains a secret ‘traitor’. Trust no-one.
Road Rage contains numerous traffic barriers, and the name of the game is ‘get low and go!’ Tombstone is the classic ‘capture the fort’ pursuit, while keeping the enemy at bay.
Gel blaster aficionados are also catered for, with a gel blaster tournament the third Sunday of every month. Jack Splat is perfect for birthdays, bucks’ and hens’ parties, and team building work events (I mean, who hasn’t wanted an opportunity to pepper their boss with paint or gel balls at some point?).
Test your fitness and intuitive skills by engaging in camouflaged bush combat.
Yippee Ki Yay!
