Our company specialises in hiring pretty extraordinary locations around the world for paintball events. We've run games in abandoned chemical factories, Military FIBUA facilites, an abandoned military outpost island off the coast of Croatia, Napoleonic Forts in France etc.
But this is probably one of our best locations to date: A 500 year old Citadel in Belgium....build by Charles the 5th and fought over in every major European conflict in the past 500 years. It is an important historical monument in western Europe.
It looked nice, so we hired it for a paintball game.
The Citadel has walls 200 feet high and the mountain it sits on is honeycombed with 14 miles of underground tunnels. Which is nice.
The game will be capped down to just 150 players. Some players will parachute in to the game via an air drop and the rest will abseil in to the game zones. Only players who are physically fit are permitted to attend.
The game will see players breaching the Citadel walls by climbing up ladders over 120ft high and actual mortars will be firing in smoke from outside the facility. Each team will be equipped with a UAV so that they can scout for enemy and every single player will be issued with a digital licensed radio and earpiece for flawless comms.
It should be quite nice.
Tickets go on sale next Monday (12th) at 7pm UK time. They are expected to sell out in seconds.
