Paintball, Airsoft, and Laser Tag Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need reservations or can we just come and play?

If your group needs rental equipment then we do ask for reservations at least 24 hours in advance. This allows us to be prepared to give your group the absolute best service and experience possible. A $5 reservation deposit is taken per player for the reservation deposit. The deposit is then deducted off your total sale when you arrive to play. Reservations can be made by clicking here or calling us at (303) 298-8573.

What activities do you offer?

American Paintball Coliseum is the only company to offer the thrill of paintball, airsoft and laser tag for players as young as 6 years old all under one roof! Our Brighton outdoor fields offer paintball and airsoft only.

Does paintball and airsoft hurt?

Both of these activities involve a projectile that is being shot by you, and at you. When getting hit, most BB’s and paintballs feel like a hard pinch. They may leave a welt if hit on bare skin or sensitive areas. We recommend long sleeves with a light pair of gloves when coming to play paintball or airsoft. Both of these activities are best suited for players 10 years or older. For players that do not want to feel the pain of getting hit, our indoor fields also offer laser tag as a no pain, no mess alternative.

Can we watch them play games?

Yes! If you do not want to partake in the action yourself, you are more than welcome to watch through our viewing areas no matter which activity your group is playing.

Do you allow food or drink inside?

We do allow food, drinks or cake inside the building. Our snack bar also offers refreshments and small snacks for sale. Our hot food options range from nachos, noodles, hot dogs pizza and more! Unfortunately, we can not allow any alcohol into the building.

Do you offer party rooms?

Party rooms are the perfect place to get away from all the paint and mess that happens here. We have clean party rooms available for $20 an hour. These rooms are locked and kept clean as a space for eating and opening presents. Party rooms can be scheduled through reservations or by availability at the time of your event.

How much ammo should I get for my group?

As much as you want! Generally, a bag of 500 paintballs per player will last about two hours of gameplay. If you are playing airsoft, we recommend 5000 BB’s split between 4-5 players for an average two hours of play time. More ammo can be purchased at any time.

How long is the average stay?

Most groups stay anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours. This is dependant on how long you plan on staying at the facility. There is no time limit.

Do you provide clothing or padding?

Our rental equipment does NOT include clothing or soft padding. It is recommended to wear long sleeves as well as a light pair of gloves for both paintball and airsoft. Our store carries a wide variety of various gloves and protective gear for sale that can be shopped when you arrive.
