Activities really do make a weekend something special. You can have monumental fun and they’re a good chance to get everybody in the group involved. Stray paintball pellets and outrageous overtaking maneuvers are topics of debate for years afterwards. All these activities are carefully chosen and researched for compliance to E. U. safety standards.

Riga Shooting Range

Always popular and never fails to create such a huge buzz and mass excitement – these are serious guns. There sure is something mysteriously satisfying about letting loose with real shooters and live ammunition. It takes place in a former KGB bunker constructed for communist party chiefs to hide in case of a nuclear attack. There’s a whole variety of guns to choose from such as pistols, pump-action shotguns, assorted semi-automatic and automatic rifles and the Soviet beast itself – the deadly accurate Kalashnikov assault rifle.
