Q. I've never played before. What do I do?
A. First, you will need a minimum of eight people to play. We only book one group exclusively for any given session. Your group booking will be the only group playing on the fields during that session. Second, you will need to bring a valid driver's license and complete a release of liability form.
Q. How much paint will I need?
A. We suggest 500 to 700 paintballs per person for a full four-hour session. This amount may vary, depending on how many times you pull the trigger and how quickly you are eliminated. Groups should consider purchasing paint by the case. It is less expensive if you buy in larger quantities.
Q. Does it hurt to be hit by a paintball?
A. Paintball can bruise skin. Safety is our number one concern. All players are required to wear a full safety mask, firmly attached to their face at all times. We strictly enforce this safety rule. Any person asked to leave the premises for any reason whatsoever will not receive a refund. Please obey the safety rules and the referees.
Q. What do I do with paintballs during play?
A. We are not responsible for lost, missing, stolen, damaged, or dumped paint. We supply each player with a pack and pods to store paint when you’re on the field.
Q. Can I purchase paint somewhere else?
A. No! Field paint only. This means you can only use paint approved and purchased at our field. This is so we can control the type of paint used in our rental markers and on our field.
Q. What should we wear?
