Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a reservation?
No, walk-ons are welcome! Reservations are used as a tool to help us adequately staff our employees so that we can provide a premier paintball experience. You only need a reservation if you are going to have five or more people.
We recommend you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing and good running shoes, (ex. Jeans and a long-sleeved shirt), don’t be afraid to layer up, you can always take layers off.The paint will not stain your clothes. The fill in a paintball is actually quite similar to vegetable oil and is a mixture of non-toxic and water-soluble substances. Some of the dyes in the fill have more color in them, but if you rinse it with cold water, it should come out.
Does my group get to play by themselves?
The majority of players are teamed up with the other members out here depending on experience level, equipment, and age. We also offer Private Parties for $75.00. Booking a private party gives you a Private referee and ensures that your group will play separately from other participants. A private party reservation needs to be made one week in advance so we can adequately staff for your party and must have 8 or more players. A reservation can be made by the phone, email, or coming into the store and booking one personally. You must specify that you are a private party when making the reservation. Just making a reservation does not mean that you will be a private party.
Does getting shot hurt?
Getting shot is most often compared to getting snapped with a rubber band or popped with a wet towel and usually will go away after a few seconds. Getting shot at close range can hurt but we have a 20ft surrender rule to reduce the amount of close range encounters.
Do I have to sign a waiver?
Yes, all players must have a liability waiver signed; those under the age of 18 must also have their parents or guardians signature in order to participate. You can fill out a waiver online under “Facilities” then “Waiver Download”. All players must be at least 10 years of age or older. Waivers filled out online will last all the way to the start of next year.
Can we drink alcohol while we play?
