Media Release: More ‘stags paint the town red’ at Bedlam

THE number of ‘stags’ looking to party on at Bedlam is soaring as revellers respond to the credit crunch by ‘painting the town red’.

Bedlam Paintball’s locations in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen-Dundee have all benefited from a marked rise in bookings from stag parties as the credit crunch continues to bite throughout the UK.

Roman Rock, MD of Bedlam Group, said: “Unlike other industries that are suffering the full brunt of the credit crunch, our bookings are well up on last year’s figures. I suppose that despite a difficult economic climate, people still need to let off steam – perhaps more so in the teeth of a credit crunch. And we’ve noticed, more and more stag parties flying up from south of the border for the weekend to paint the town red – quite literally!

“As everyone knows, there can be a lot of tension in the run-up to a wedding, and paintballing is a great way to celebrate and have some fun with the guys before settling down to wedded bliss.”

As well as stag parties, Bedlam is proving popular with corporate team building; birthdays or people just looking for a fun day out with their mates. Among an expanded range of theme-park game zones at any of Bedlam are The Black Fortress and The Stagecoach Stand-off.

Roman Rock said: “Paintballing is already the ultimate adrenaline rush and, with the introduction of the Stagecoach Stand-off and other attractions, such as The Black Fortress, our sites continue to offer the best range of exciting scenarios and storylines for paintballing.”

Bedlam Paintball hosts more than 20,000 players a year. The most professional operation of its kind in Scotland, Bedlam is the only paintball company in Europe that holds the coveted Investors in People accreditation.

In addition to being an accredited member of The UK Paintball Sport Federation, Bedlam has accreditation from VisitScotland. The Bedlam Group also operates Nationwide Paintball, a booking agency with 100 sites throughout the UK.
