WITH the Elite Ice Hockey League season
drawing to a close, the Coors Belfast Giants hung up their
skates and opted for a day at the Jungle Paintball in Moneymore.
The Giants, who are currently third in the
league, enjoyed a highly competitive day - divided into two
teams, the Canadians versus the British, several light hearted
disputes ensued over cheating.
The British emerged as the overall winners,
leaving the Canadians to pay for chips and beers on the way
home. Leigh Jaimeson from the Giants commented: "The Jungle was
a great set-up with explosions and smoke bombs simulating a
realistic battle scene". Meanwhile, Lewis Christie added that he
was surprised at how much the games got his adrenaline pumping!
The Jungle was the first paintball site to
open in Northern Ireland after the law changed in 2005,
permitting people aged 16 or over to take part in paintball
games without the need for a firearm certificate. Since then the
Jungle has gone from strength to strength adding four new games
zones to the original 10, a speedball field and a clay pigeon
shooting facility. The award-winning Jungle Paintball has
further plans to diversify this summer by opening Ireland's
first Zorb site.
Zorbing is a recreational activity which
involves rolling down a hill in an inflatable, transparent,
sphere made from PVC.
Robert Carmichael, from the Jungle said:
"We've had a great couple of years and hope to bring many more
exciting attractions to the site."
