Ancaster Karting and Paintball is a family run business first established in November 1991 with the creation of a 300 metre track using twelve 160cc swift karts. The business has progressed with the completion of a new building, which boasts a 6 lane bowling alley, amusements, cafe, bar, briefing room and reception, and a full size podium. In 1985 Paintball was introduced and over the last 20 years the venue has developed into one of the leading venues in the UK.
