Paintball FAQ List

What is Paintball?

Paintball is a military type war game which is played with Paintball guns, which are called “Markers”. They shoot balls made of gelatin and colored soap. When the ball hits something or someone, it breaks.  Once a player is marked by a paintball they are eliminated from that particular game. They wait on the sideline until a new game starts and they are now back “in” to play.

Paintball is an active sport where all ages of men and women can play at the same time and age & sex is not a primary factor of determining success on the field. This game takes a combination of intelligence, skill, determination, confidence all while getting some exercise and having fun.

Paintball is a great activity to have fun as individuals or for team building for corporations.

So, if you want to get maximum play for your money come earlier in the day! Try to come before 3pm to have optimal playing time.

Does it hurt when you get hit by a paintball?

When you get hit by a paintball, it may sting a little. But, trying NOT to get hit is the name of the game. Many people consider getting shot at, to be the adrenaline rush part of the game.

Steps to lessen the sting and increase the fun:

  • Wear thicker or layered clothing to cushion the hit.
    • Optional Rental Clothes  for added protection/cushion – Military jumpsuits/shirts and pants available for only $6 each to simply slip over your own clothes.
  • We have a strict rule of no shooting closer than 10 feet from your opponent. The closer you are are shot, the more it stings. So distance helps.
  • Wear extra safety gear.
    • Rent chest protector from ala cart menu at pro shop.
    • Purchase from Pro Shop:
      • Armored fingerless gloves
      • neck guards
      • Brand new rental masks for you to keep (COVID precautions)
What if it Rains?

We play RAIN or SHINE!!

After all, it’s always more fun to play in the rain and the mud!

(No refunds for weather)

What Should I Wear?

Covering most of your skin will be less “sting” when you get shot.

  • Baggy clothes are best (tight leggings are not recommended)
  • Hoodies are a good choice.
  • Old clothes preferred since you will be getting dirty!
  • Wear good supportive shoes (closed toe) or boots!

Optional –Rental Military jumpsuits/shirts and pants available for only $6 each to simply slip over your own clothes .Let us do the wash and you will come out clean!!

Will the paintballs Stain my clothes/skin?

The paint “splats “are a badge of honor but when you go home you can get your clothes clean by a quick wash in your standard laundry machine.

Paint will come of the skin easily with soap and water. Paintballs are non-toxic, water soluble and non-caustic.

Optional -Rental Military jumpsuits/shirts and pants available for only $6 each to simply slip over your own clothes. Let us do the wash and you will come out clean!!

Air

The Paintball Markers require compressed air to fire. Our rental tanks hold enough air for 500 shots before you have to grab more air.

We have a compressed air tank to fill up during the day.

If you bring your own tank we will check tank dates to make sure its not expired.

We do not carry CO2 at this time.

Chrono

A Chronograph is a machine used to test the speed of how fast the paintball travels.

  • Our chrono limit is between 285 to 300 max fps (feet per second).
  • Self Equipped? Please make sure you are within our set chrono range (we will be checking)
  • Rentals- our staff makes sure your marker (gun) is at the correct limit.
  • We have a chrono machine on site to test your markers free of charge.
Do you accept Credit Cards?

We accept all major credit cards & Apple pay & and of course good ole’ cash!

Is Paintball Safe?

We take the safety of our players very seriously. Our referees are with players at all times while in the active shooting area. They are making sure we are providing a safe environment and enjoyable experience.

There is no physical contact permitted during play and you must be at least 10 feet away to shoot at your opponent.

Statistics for the insurance companies have shown that when safety rules are followed and protective equipment is worn, paintball is safer that tennis, running, golf, swimming and other recreational sports.

Mask -You are required to wear protective equipment for your eyes (paintball mask) at all times on the active shooting field (taking off your mask for any reason on the field will result in immediate removal from the park without a refund).

Do you sell paintball gear/markers/paint?

Yes we have a well stocked PRO SHOP where we carry many markers (entry level to expert level) and also all paintball and airsoft products you will need to get yourself outfitted.

Have your eye on something we don’t carry? We will order for you and save you the shipping costs you may pay online. We have competitive prices and will always be around to answer questions and support you.

Do you have Paintball tournaments?

We offer many tournaments for both individuals and teams. See Upcoming Paintball Events tab.
