1. WHAT IS PAINTBALL?
Paintball is a game normally setting 2 teams against each other in a match to eliminate the other team by shooting them with paintballs. There are many different variations including capture the flag, defend the fort, etc.
2. DOES IT HURT TO GET HIT?
Getting hit by a paintball feels very close to the same thing as a solid bee sting. But it goes away pretty quickly and you are ready to keep going! We also have a low impact gun that hurts even less! It is perfect if you are afraid of getting hit too hard.
3. IS THIS REALLY SAFE?
Yes, paintball is actually proven statistically safer than bowling! (Look it up HERE) All our guns shoot below 280fps. (That is feet per second in case you were wondering) That is the speed of the paintball leaving the barrel so you aren’t even getting hit at that speed! You may leave with a couple of welts but they will go away usually within a few hours, and they make great war stories!
4. OK, WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We suggest you wear long pants, closed toe shoes, and normally a long sleeve shirt. (If you feel like being “THAT GUY” we won’t stop you from wearing shorts and a t-shirt) We supply your mask, which is the most important piece of equipment! We have coveralls and jackets available in the store as well! Just in case you forgot to bring some clothes to play in.
5. DOES THIS PAINT COME OUT OF MY CLOTHES?
Yes, we are a Field Paint ONLY location and all the paintballs we use will come right out your clothing! (Don’t worry mom we gotcha covered!)
6. HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE?
Our observation has been that the youngest age would be 10 years old. Normally we will not allow younger kids play and it is at our discretion if they are allowed to play.
7. HOW LONG DO 200 PAINTBALLS LAST?
We get this question a lot. From our best estimates you can play 2-3 games on 200 paintballs. We do have more available to purchase if you would like to buy more because after 2-3 games… You are just getting started!
8. IS THERE SOMEWHERE TO JUST WATCH?
Yes for those who are choosing to not participate, (You are missing out!) there is plenty of space outside the netting of the fields where you can watch the gaming take place. We also have picnic tables to take a seat and take in the paintball atmosphere!
9. DO WE PLAY IN INCLEMENT WEATHER?
We will play in the rain, snow, heat, cold, wind, cloudy, and sunny. We WILL NOT play if there is lightning or thunder in our vicinity. We take safety seriously and will not put you or ourselves in that danger!
10. OK WHEN CAN I PLAY?
We are open Saturday 12-3 for open play meaning you can show up and jump in with a bunch of other players! We are also open any day during the week for reservations (Including Saturdays). If you have a group of 6 or more give us a call!
