Frequently Asked Questions
Paintball has all the thrills of “Hide and Seek,” “Cops and Robbers,” and “Capture The Flag.” Conjure up all the fun, excitement and feelings of sheer joy that you had when you were a kid playing these games. Then try to imagine all of these games rolled up into one and you’ve got paintball — capture the flag in the woods. But just like a kid, you’ll have to bring your wits, your strategy — and above all your sense of humor! Now you’re ready to have a day filled with action and adventure. You and your team, equipped with full mask and semi-automatic paint markers, attempt to cross a wooded field in order to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it back to your flag station. Then BAM! With a well-placed splat of paint, you can mark your opponents out of the game. Don’t worry! Our specially-designed paint is as safe for you as it is for Mother Nature. You’ll get plenty of chances to play all day long. In a full day you’ll usually play at least eight games, possibly more. You’ll be exhausted but exhilarated by the day’s end and you’ll have plenty of stories to tell your friends at home.
How old do you have to be to play?
For paintball, we recommend 9 and above. Although there is no set age requirement, it is up the the parent to determine if the child is ready to play. We have some children that play at an earlier age because their parent feels they are responsible to follow the safety rules and they are comfortable with the impact of paintball.
We do offer a party option for younger kids (7-10 years old) that is called a splat party. It is a low impact alternative to paintball that uses smaller ball and a spring loaded splat gun.
Paintball is great for birthday parties, corporate groups, fundraisers, bachelor parties, church outings, and just for getting out to meet new people. We offer public play as well as private outings.
Is Paintball Safe?
Like any other activity or sport, there is always the potential for injury. However, standard safety rules and the proper use of industry developed and approved safety equipment have made paintball one of the safest participatory sports. In fact, insurance company statistics have shown that more people are hurt bowling and fishing than playing paintball.
When on the field players must ALWAYS wear protective goggles, which are part of a special mask which protects the eyes and face. When not on the field barrel plugs are inserted into the paintball gun to prevent paintballs from leaving the barrel. Safety is highly stressed at our fields with orientations given at the beginning of each session and referees/staff members on hand oversee the players. Finally, commercial paintball fields limit the velocity of a fired paintball to less than 290 feet per second. Fields which do not enforce safety requirements should be avoided.
Does it hurt when you get hit with a paintball?
It is a bit of a sting. Very often, you don’t feel it because your adrenaline is pumping. On occasion, certain shots can sting and leave a mark. That being said, it is not bad enough to keep the kids and adults from coming back over and over again.
What Should I Bring?
We recommend dark clothing or camouflage, high-top sneakers or boots and an extra change of clothes. We will supply you with all of the equipment you need to play the entire day. Hot and cold food and beverages are available at all locations for your purchase (some fields order the food in for you). Jumpsuits are also available for purchase.
Can I bring my own paintball gun, goggles and paintballs?
At our locations you can bring your own paintballs gun, we’re sorry no full auto or burst modes allowed. You can also bring your own paintball goggles. You must have goggles that are manufactured specifically for paintball and they must have a full face mask and ear protection. The paintballs have to be purchased directly from our fields.
Do I have to fill out a waiver form?
Yes, Everyone that plays must sign a liability waiver. If a person is under the age of 18, this waiver must be signed by their parent or legal guardian. You can get a copy of the waiver here.
When can we play paintball?
We are open every Saturday and Sunday for general admission. We can open any day with an advance reservation for a private field of 10 or more players. Like us on Facebook so you can hear about our special holiday openings as well.
Does the paint wash out?
Yes. It is a water soluble, non-toxic dye however, some clothing is sensitive to dyes and can discolor. Do not wear anything you would mind getting dirty.
Do I need to make a reservation or can I just show up to play?
For Private Parties, an advance reservation is absolutely necessary. For public play, you can just walk-on however, we strongly suggest making a reservation. This allows us to guarantee your equipment and be better prepared to host your day.
