Where to Play Paintball in Korea: Best Survival Sites

Experience playing paintball in Korea when you visit this site that’s only 2 hours away from Seoul! (New WAUG users get extra ₩3,000 or $3 off first booking 🎉)

Locally known as Survival, paintball in Korea is typically played in the great outdoors. Since there’s more room and natural elements to play, it’ll definitely feel like a leveled-up experience of continuous hiding, diving, and shooting around every corner. If you haven’t played this mock combat sports yet, then you can expect your first experience to be super fun and memorable. Of course, if you’re an avid player, you can look forward to a more immersive experience with higher stakes!

1. Buggy World in Chuncheon, Gangwon
