Alternative Hangout in Lagos: Go Paintballing

If I had a dollar for every complain of how Lagos hangout/date scene almost always involves restaurants and food, I would have a house in Banana Island right now. I decided to start the Alternative Hangout in Lagos series to highlight all the other fun things you can do in Lagos. However, I cannot promise that they won’t involve food at some point or the other.

What better way to kick off the series than with an activity that allows you to release some of the pent-up frustration that comes with living in Lagos. The best part about paintballing is the intensity and excitement. Okay, maybe also the fact that I got to act out my secret agent fantasy while others got to recreate scenes from Call of Duty. Whatever you do, ensure you wear comfortable shoes you wouldn’t mind getting dirty and select the camo overalls because they’re the thickest and offer some protection from the impact of the bullets.

There are two major paintball arenas in Lagos; one on the mainland and the other on the island. The pricing of both is very similar but I went with the one on the mainland because of the ease of communication and friendliness of their handler.

Nigeria Ultimate Paintball is located at Ziggies Compound in Magodo Phase 2. You can reach them on +2347080750055. For 6,500 Naira, you get overalls, a gun and 50 paintball bullets. You’ll pay an additional 1,500 Naira for extra 50 bullets.

Tired of visiting only restaurants in Lagos? Check out this fun thing to do in Lagos!

I loved the experience so much that I signed up for a monthly membership immediately after my session. The membership allows unlimited visits for the month and 500 bullets. However, because I bruise easily and had visible bruises from the bullets two weeks after my session, I’ll be giving out my membership for the month of November. Leave a comment with your Instagram handle and I’ll be in touch with the lucky winner.
