Every airsofter fantasises about the perfect airsoft site. We’ve all been at an airport, small town or factory and wondered about how amazing it would be if you could use it for an airsoft site (with all the damage and danger to public put aside).
We’ve put together a list of 5 amazing places on planet earth that would make amazing airsoft sites if we ever got the chance. Oh, and we’ve completely ignored health and safety.
Gulliver’s Kingdom, Japan
This abandoned theme park, built in the shadow of Mount Fuji – Japan, is based on the novel Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift.
The park features dense forests, wide waterways and a plethora of buildings that you could fight your way through. Not to mention the host of electric golf buggies and the 80meter tall man.
Unfortunately, this amazing potential airsoft site was demolished in 2009 for redevelopment but we can still dream.
Michigan Central Station, USA
At the time of its construction, Michigan Central Station was the tallest rail station in the world at 18 stories tall and was closed in 1988.
The station features hundreds of long hallways and avenues that would make a CQC dream site, with attack routes from multiple elevations and tall ceilings that would echo grenades all day long.
Almost every single one of the windows at the station are smashed, we can’t help but think that this makes it very good for roof abseiling entries.
The Maunsell Sea Forts, England
Decommissioned in the late 1950s, the Maunsell Forts were built during the Second World War to defend the UK. These 7 ‘towers’, known as RedSand (pictured above), are situated in the Thames Estuary as AA (anti-air) forts. The forts each carried 4 QF 3.75 inch guns and 2 Bofors 40mm Guns.
Whilst the forts are around 9km from the nearest land, they offer great potential for land/sea skirmishes and milsim events.
The chances of being able to play at these stunning forts are next to nil as the buildings are practically falling into the water without help. However, there are a number of similar sights around the UK from the war that offer great potential.
Czestochowa Railway Depot, Poland
As one of the leading Russian Poland industrial leaders entering the 20th century, Czestochowa began to boom as it was connected to the rest of Europe via rail. Now the railway depot has been superseded and the remains of its past lay bare.
The railway depot is filled with… trains. The trains would make for amazing CQC opportunity, but the wide open spaces within the main halls and outside give excellent sniping and long range gameplay.
The dark, post-apocalyptic nature of the area lends itself to a zombie-esque kind of gameplay, or a post-war milsim experience.
Davis Monthan Airfield,USA
The Davis Monthan Airfield in Arizona is over 12 square kilometres of military history. Its most useful feature to us airsofters is an aircraft boneyard for all the excess military and government aircraft. Hundreds, if not thousands, of military aircraft all in one field; all of which would make for amazing milsim events, professional training and every day skirmish activities.
Besides being a current and active airforce base, the huge breadth and diversity of the contacts that this kind of area holds is something that most airsofters dream of.
