Questions? We've got answers!

Does paintball hurt?

Paintball is an adrenalin activity. The excitement is created by a competitive atmosphere and an incentive to avoid getting shot. Our Junior paintball equipment use smaller more delicate paintballs which are felt slightly more keenly than a Nerf dart for example but should not cause pain. Under 12’s are offered protective gloves, chest/back protection and a head guard along with certifies paintball goggles/face mask.
For adults we use a larger paintball fired with a higher velocity. These are felt more keenly to heighten the excitement of the game and can cause minor bruising we like to call badges of honour! Adults are supplied with coveralls with an integrated head cover and certified paintball goggles/face mask. Additional padding or gloves can be brought along as you see fit.

How long do games last?

Games usually last between 15 and 25 mins. You should expect to play around 8 to 10 games in a full day but we are happy to play as many games as possible within your allotted booking timings.

How many paintballs will I need?

On average an individual will use 800 paintballs in a full day. However, the frustrated Rambo’s out there intent on shooting everything that moves you can expect to shoot 1000-1500 paintballs in a full day.

Can grownups join in with the kids?

I see where this is going! If you make a private booking and have the consent of all parents then yes. But don’t come crying to us when the kids gang up on you!

Is food provided?

While food is not included in the price of the event we do serve burgers and a small selection of hot foods during the day which can be purchased from reception along with the usual selection of confectionery and soft drinks. Alternatively please feel free to bring your own food and drinks to consume through your event.

Can we drink alcohol during the event?

Absolutely not! The consumption of alcohol or drugs is strictly forbidden while onsite. Anyone thought to be under the influence of either will be asked to leave immediately.
