- ABOUT THE SPOT
Paintball in Cromwell, South Island, Otago New Zealand
Before the formation of Lake Dunstan and the construction of Clyde Dam, Cromwell was known as The Junction, due to the confluence of Clutha River with Kawarau River. This used to be a gold-mining area. The climate is considered to be continental and dry, with hot summers (up to 35°C/95°F) and cold winters (the temperature can drop down to -8°C/17.60°F).
For the paintball lovers, Cromwell is the perfect place to be! Play this para-military game in a total area of 10 ac/40469 m² and three fields, feel the thrill of the combat without getting hurt (except for some minor bruises maybe), try to shoot the enemy without getting “killed” and have lots of fun.
There are plenty games scenarios you can choose from: Capture the Flag (capture and steal the enemy’s flag), Defend the Fort (try to invade the enemy’s fort), Hummer Down and many more.
Note: Wear closed-toe sport shoes.
