What is the game of Paintball?
Well, combine the game of capture the flag with chess, mix in hide 'n' seek and add a large dose of adrenaline. Paintball is challenging and fast-paced. As few as two or as many as eighty can play. Each team starts at its own flag station. A starting signal is given and each team tries to reach the other team's station, grab the flag and race back to its station. When a player gets tagged by a paintball he/she is out of the game. If a player is carrying a flag when tagged, he/she must drop the flag at that spot, and then leave the game. Elimination is a popular game as well this is simply where one team eliminates the other and whoever does it the fastest wins the game.
What to expect when you get hit
Most people that have not played Paintball before have no idea what to expect. The most common question is "does it hurt when you are hit?" If a paintball hits you fired from close range (20 feet or less) it does sting a bit. All parks are extremely family oriented facilities and set up for families and kids. We do not allow people to be shot at a close range. In the beginner games the pressure on the paintball marker is set at a lower setting than intermediate or advanced. Most people tell you that after the first time you've been hit. It rarely is an issue.
What to wear
It is recommended that you wear long pants, and long sleeves. Comfortable clothing that covers as much as possible. The fill inside paintballs is non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluble and biodegradable. It rinses out of clothing and off skin with mild soap and water. Gloves are also nice to have. A bandana is an inexpensive and effective way to cover your neck. Good running shoes or boots will keep your feet happy. Especially remember to wear a hat or helmet, a baseball cap or beanie is a good idea. Lastly, if you are inclined to jump, dive, or other hero-like actions, we recommend elbow and knee pads.
