What to expect while playing paintball
Second half on how to play paintball.
Q: What can I do to prepare for my trip to Vintage Paintball Park?
Q: Is there an age requirement to play?
A: To play paintball at Vintage Paintball Park you must be 9 years of age or older. If you are under 18 you must have a parent or guardian sign your liability waiver.
Q: How can I play at Vintage Paintball Park?
A: There are two ways to play paintball at Vintage Paintball Park: The first is Reservations. Reservations are where your group, or party plays with only your group. You have a private ref and are allowed to play each course as you wish during your 3-hour time frame. Reservations can be made 7 days a week. The second way to play at the park is Open Play. Open play consists of weekends, Noon -5 P.M. where all general admission players play against each other. We divide everyone into equal teams and play different courses throughout the day. It’s similar to a free skate session at a skate park. Just show up and we’ll take care of the rest.
Q: FPO? What is it?
A: Field Paint Only. Field paint only means you cannot bring your own paintballs to use at our park. All paintballs must be purchased on site from Vintage Paintball Park to ensure a quality product and safe environment. Anyone caught shooting outside paint will be asked to leave without refund and banned from the park for one year. No exceptions.
Q: Is paintball safe?
A: Yes! Being a non- contact sport it does not have anywhere near the injuries of other sports like Soccer, Hockey or Basketball. When playing under professional, supervised conditions with proper equipment, it is statistically safer than golf or bowling!
Q: Does it hurt when you get hit?
A: This is the most commonly asked question we get. Getting shot typically feels like being snapped with a wet towel. At Vintage Paintball Park we make sure every marker is chronographed at under 300fps (feet per second) and that every participant is always using certified goggle systems.
Q: Will the paint wash out?
A: Actually, paintballs have no paint in them! They are a gelatin capsule, much like a bath bead or Advil gel cap and the stuff inside is mainly a product called PEG. This is a food grade synthetic oil filler found in many household items like tooth-paste! You may get a few grease marks but rest assured, as our paint is all non-toxic, non-staining and completely water-soluble.
Q: What NOT to wear, bring or expect at the park.
A: Shorts or thin clothing, dress shoes, jewelry, bright colored clothing, metal spikes, weapons of any sort, a bad attitude, alcohol or drugs, and war-like militaristic activities.
Q: Should I bring anything?
A: Besides a good change of clothes, a snack or drink (NO ALCOHOL) that should do it. We have everything you’ll need on site. Please note that if you are renting equipment we will require a valid I.D. for collateral.
Q: Do you play in the rain?
A: We play rain or shine, however if the weather makes a turn for the worst (ex. Lightning, hail, tornado warnings, etc) we will call games. Please review our policies.
