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 game play. 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.

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.
