I came here to do the axe throwing and it was really good fun and surprisingly easy to pick up. After doing the scoring rounds and i’m happy to see my team won 😁 we were allowed to keep throwing, so we tried mixing things up by throwing 2 axes, one in each hand, even throwing from under and between my legs. All just a bit of good fun and a great morning spent with friends.

Pyrotechnics that can be purchased from a Skirmish Paintball site are hand grenades and Smoke bombs, with some also providing flash bangs.
- Hand Grenades
Hand Grenades are constructed using a cardboard shell, with a fuse inside that has 20-25 paintballs around the center. To light the fuse, you must tear off the cap, and use the reverse side, which resembles the side of a matchbox to spark the fuse. When the fuse is lit, there is an approximate 5 seconds before the grenade shatters and explodes, firing coloured paint in all directions.
- Smoke Bombs
Smoke Bombs use the same lighting technology as the hand grenade, with a reverse side to the cap which you must strike against the fuse. When a smoke bomb is lit, it releases coloured smoke for about 2 minutes, to provide cover, or smoke out other paintball players.
- Flash Bangs
Flash Bangs are more often seen on airsoft days. The flash bang has the same lighting technique as the hand grenade and smoke bomb, but after the fuse has been lit, it sparks a bright white flash to temporarily blind the opposition, or any other players that were staring at the pyrotechnic when it went off.
Axe throwing was right next to the car park on the level. For the larger activities like airsoft or paintball be prepared for a lot of walking and hills.
