Select the game you want to play (Paintball/Airsoft/Paintball Lite/SplatMaster/Nerf) Scroll to the package you are interested in and click on the Red “Book Today” button. That will take you to a calendar, select the date you are interested in and follow the prompts to complete your reservation.
Q. What do I wear to play paintball?
A. Long sleeve baggy shirt help absorb the impact. DO NOT wear just a tee shirt unless you are prepared for some sting and paintball on skin contact which is never fun. Light jackets are great also. Layer yourself or even wear a old riding chest protector or if you feel the need we rent padded chest protectors. Pants and boots/tennis shoes are good choices for clothing. Gloves and a baseball/soft cap are also highly recommended. If you don't want to take the mess home with you, uniform rentals are available for $10.00. Ask for a rental when you are at the register.
Q. Does playing paintball hurt?
A. In most cases you will hardly feel a thing or if at all. But if you do, it feels like a rubber band popping on you but of course if you let people get close and shoot you that feeling is felt even more the closer you get to your opponent. You can decide to stay back and get your shooting up close or even get up front where all the action is. Up close shots can cause a little bruise and a welt unless you wear all the recommended safely clothing. But remember to follow the ref directions on exiting the fields, just because you get shot does not mean the game stops. You exit to the rear and make your exit off the field. And if you're in the middle of intense battle wait, please do not try to exit until the shooting dies down. Paintball is a fun and very safe sport that you get to decide your paintball experience.

Q. Is my deposit refundable?
A. If you cancel or reschedule your event with more than 48 hours notice then yes we are happy to refund the deposit or apply it to a rescheduled reservation.

If you show up for your group and have less than the minimum required players and decide to play with walk on players rather than a small private group, you will loose your $100 deposit. The deposit is to guarantee that you are going forward with your reservation as planned. We bring on refs based on these reservations and the ref still requires pay and we can’t have refs at the field without a job to do.

If your numbers vary slightly between the time you make the reservation and the day of the event it is OK. You will provide registration with your final count at the register and be charged accordingly.
