What do the passes cover?
They cover the admission to the park, with all day use of the fields, equipment rental (semi automatic gun, face mask and goggles), and safety instructions. The customer needs to only pay for their ammo (500 paintballs and CO2 or compressed air is the typical minimum requirement)
How much is ammo?
It varies from park to park, but on the average is 4 – 7 cents per ball ($20 – $35 for 500 balls). Some parks include the cost of CO2 or compressed air in the cost of their paint, while others charge a nominal all day air fee ($5-10).
What does it normally cost?
The average cost of admission to a paintball park is $20-$25 and the average equipment rental charge is $10-$15. After paying these expenses, the customer still has to buy the ammo. Dependent on the park, the average customer pays $45 – $75 for a day of paintball, if they don’t have our passes.
When can you use the passes and when do they expire?
We do not put expiration dates on our physical passes. Each pass is good for one person for one day of open play. Since most all of our participating parks offer open play on Saturdays and Sundays, the passes are good for open play on those days. If a park has open play hours on weekdays, they usually accept them, but you might want to check with the park to make sure.
Can these passes be used for a private party?
No. They are for open play only. While some parks do not require reservations, you may want to call ahead or check their website to assure the availability of rental equipment. If your group is 10 or more, you might want to call ahead or check their website so that the park can accommodate you quicker on your arrival.
What are the age restrictions?
At most parks, players must be 10 or older. Some parks offer low impact open play paintball for younger players.
How do I fill out a waiver?
All players must sign a waiver. Players under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent. In most cases a parent can either do this ahead of time online. You can find the links for the waivers in our list of participating parks.
What do I wear?
You will be provided the appropriate head gear, which must be worn at all times. Make sure there is no exposed skin. Wear loose clothing, not skintight clothing. The “paint” will not ruin your clothes, it’ll wash out easily in the laundry. Weather permitting, wear layers. Some parks offer chest protection or coveralls for a small additional fee.
Can I bring my own paintballs?
No. All of our facilities have a strict “field paint ONLY” policy.
There are many safety issues that come up with offsite paint. Our fields ensure quality paint and shelf life. Old/cheap paintballs can also jam up the gun. This can disrupt your game time and can potentially damage the equipment. Also, our field owners already allow us to sell the passes at a considerable discount. The small charge for air and paintballs helps our fields pay for the massive overhead and fixed costs of running the fields.
Where can I buy equipment?
Many of our participating fields have their own pro-shops where you can find a great selection of markers, masks, and other gear from the industry’s leading manufacturers. Plus it helps to support your local field owners!
