At its essence, paintball is a competitive game played like any other competitive game, to win. It requires specific gear, (goggles, a gun/marker, pressurized gas, and paintballs) so you can safely shoot at others and be shot at.
Paintball is like a more challenging, high-stakes version of tag, hide-and-seek, or capture the flag. Beyond that, paintball is hard to describe. It can be played with as few as two people or as many as 500; a game can last 5 minutes or 24 hours; it’s objective might be to take something, bring something, find something, or simply be the last person standing.
Depending on the field you play, tactics will vary as well. A paintball game will be different every time, but there’s one for sure when you play at Action Paintball Games: it’s an adrenaline rush.
Great for birthday parties or simply giving kids a treat (and take a break in our adult space while they have fun).
