Kids Paintball and Laser Tag games are usually conducted as a closed (private) group.
Can our group be on the one team if we combine?
Groups will always be mixed. That way your mates still shoot and play against each other. In addition respect for the opposition is always maintained and is much more fun.
Can more players come on the day?
Yes, we can assemble additional gear whilst the group prepares to play. However if possible give us as much notice as possible.
What happens if players arrive late?
Late arrivals have to be geared up and attend our safety brief. It is unfair on punctual players to wait for late arrivals. Players arriving late may miss one or two games within the session.

Can I bring my own paintballs?
Definitely NOT. Paintballs must be purchased on site on the day. This is for financial as well as safety reasons. Persons who try to bring their own paintballs will be asked to leave the premises.
Does paintball hurt?
Most people describe a paintball hit similar to a slap. However it all depends on where you get hit or tagged. If the paintball hits you on the goggles you will not feel a thing but if the paintball hits on a fleshy body part, then you will feel it.
