What to Bring to a Paintball Game in Colorado Springs
When coming out to play paintball, airsoft or laser tag, there are a few things that you may and may not want to bring to the field. All of the activities offered at American Paintball Coliseum intend to get you running around and having a good time, therefore, the first thing that we recommend is closed-toed shoes for everyone that is coming out to play.
Clothing — Now, paintball and airsoft are more involved than laser tag is. Laser tag does not have a projectile moving through the air and you can play in shorts and a t-shirt if you prefer. When playing paintball or airsoft, getting hit can sting a little, this is why we recommend that players wear full-length pants and a long sleeve shirt with a hooded jacket out to play.
When playing paintball, the paint will wash out of clothes, however, it is chalky and you will still be dirty after playing. For this reason, if you’re playing paintball, we recommend a change of clothes to go home or out to dinner in.
In order to protect the hands, we also recommend that players wear a light pair of gloves. If you forget to bring a pair of gloves, have no fear! All of our locations are fully-stocked up on gloves and protective equipment for sale.
- Water — Running around playing airsoft, paintball, or laser tag can work up quite a thirst! Players are welcome to bring a water bottle or drinks if they would like. Our facility also offers a snack bar that carries small snacks and drinks during the time that your group is playing if you need to refuel.
What Not to Bring
Moving on, there are a few things that you do NOT want to bring to the fields. This goes for all of our activities including laser tag and the virtual reality arcade.
It is not recommended to wear jewelry, expensive clothing, open toed shoes, watches, cell phones, or other valuable items that cannot handle either getting hit with impact or getting paint on. These sorts of items should be left in the car, at home, or with a trusted individual in your party for safekeeping.
If you have any other questions about what to wear or not wear on the field, please feel free to contact us and our friendly staff will be happy to help you.
