Frequently asked questions

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE?

Yes, the minimum age is 12 years old as required by our insurers.

HOW LONG IN THE SESSION?

Our sessions are approx 3 hours long and include a full safety rules briefing and demonstration. 

ONCE YOU ARE HIT, ARE YOU OUT FOR REST OF SESSION?

No, you are only out for that particular 20-minute game and you can rejoin in the next game. Or what ever your group decides.

DOES THE PAINT WASH OUT?

Yes, the paint is completely washable and non-toxic. We recommend wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We recommend jeans and a sweatshirt, and sturdy footwear for intense outdoor activity. 

DO I NEED EXPERIENCE?

No, the majority of our customers are beginners – we can teach you to paintball! We provide a full safety orientation, demos, guidance and tips.

HOW DO YOU PLAY?

After players receive a safety orientation, they are split into two equal teams identified by armbands. The teams attempt to achieve an objective within the given time limit. Players attempt to eliminate opposing players by “tagging” them with paintballs expelled from their paintball markers. If a player is hit and the paintball breaks, the player is out for that particular game and must return to the “safe area” waiting area. The player may join into the next game (games are a maximum of 20 minutes duration and we play as many games as we can fit into the 3 hour session.) Please see our  fields and  games sections for a description of our various field and game scenarios.
