This year marks a special milestone for The Jungle. We opened back in 2005, as a Paintballing site. Back then, we were the first to bring Paintballing to Northern Ireland. We began as a young crew, full of passion and excitement for our new venture, running paintball sessions from morning to night with our new and exciting activity.
Since then, we have grown steadily and added a few more strings to our bow. We added loads more activities over the years, as well as a roster of large scale seasonal events and an array of accommodation options for our customers to enjoy. We also added a few new faces to The Jungle team.
It’s been quite the ride. Things haven’t always been easy and we’ve had to ride the ebbs and flows of changes in customer demand and trends, learning along the way that innovation is key to survival in this highly competitive market. We are proud to say that all our ideas have been generated in house using our own creative abilities and initiative. We are thrilled to be at this point and to be celebrating 15 years of delivering fun and adventure to you good people.
It’s down to each and every person who has ever came to The Jungle for an activity or event that we owe our sincere thanks. We couldn’t be here today without all of your support. Without adventure seekers, weekend retreaters and day trippers like yourselves, we wouldn’t have a business.
