Bush ball takes place in the wildness of any bush-dominated area and is perfect for those who want to break out the camouflage and Men in Black sunnies, while speedball is a fast paced game which takes place around bunkers made from tyres and pallets. Now it’s with MilSim which stands for military simulation that you get to break out the skills you learnt in online combat. So blast away your stress one paint bullet at a time and have fun doing it at Hillcrest Paintball.Fight fact: Before paintball was invented, people in South America would play a similar game where they shot daisy seeds and fat-free milk at their opponents with a catapult.
