3) Crossfire (SG)
http://www.crossfire.com.sg/individual.html

The cost for each Crossfire Paintball game is:
* $25.00^ per player for session 1 and 4
* $40.00^ per player for session 2 and 3. 250 pellets is required to be purchased.

Purchase of additional pellets is available at 10 pellets for $0.70.

Each player is entitled to:
* 50 pellets of paintball

1. Our daily timeslots are as follow (including briefing and game play):
• Session 1 : (9.00am – 10.30am)
• Session 2 : (11.00am – 1.00pm*)
• Session 3 : (2.00pm – 4.00pm*)
• Session 4 : (4.00pm – 5.30pm)

So assuming If I want to play a game with 250 pellets, I'll have to fork out..
Session (1,4): ( $25 + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.70 ) * 1.07 = $ 41.73
Session (2,3): ( $40 + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.70 ) * 1.07 = $ 57.78

In summary:




This is only a flat comparison of prices.  You should consider the other factors before deciding where to play.

  1. Hey..
    you calculated the SDC one wrongly liao la!

    Session (1,4): ( $25 + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.70 ) * 0.07 = $ 41.73
    Session (2,3): ( $40 + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.70 ) * 0.07 = $ 57.78

    it's 7 cents per ball, not 70 cents! and when I played there they didn't charge 7% gst for the balls. so it should be

    Session (1,4): ( $25 * 1.07) + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.07 ) = $40.75
    Session (2,3): ( $40 * 1.07) + ( 250 - 50 ) * 0.07 ) = $56.80
