Frequently Asked Questions
Q: "DOES PAINTBALL/AIRSOFT HURT??
A: Yes, it can hurt somewhat. It can be described as a slight toe stub, or getting popped with a rubberband. You might feel a "sting" or just a dull thud. Obviously getting hit on bare skin will hurt more than clothing, so cover up!
Q: "WHAT SHOULD I WEAR WHILE PLAYING PAINTBALL/AIRSOFT?"
A: The more cover you have on, the better. Baggier clothing is better than tight clothes. Hoodies, sweatpants, long sleeves, gloves, etc.. Layers are best. PAINT WASHES OFF! Just wash sooner rather than later.
Birthday party rates are the same as all rates listed on our Pricing page.
Every group gets a couple picnic tables and you may decorate them however you wish. You may bring extra chairs if you'd like.
You may bring any food and drinks you'd like. We do not have a refrigerator for cakes or outlets by the picnic tables. Marco's & Geppeto's (closed Sundays) in Denver deliver. You may eat before your reservation time, during your reservation (keep in mind 2-4 hour time limit with rental equipment), or after you turn in equipment, but must be cleaned up and packing up by close at 5pm.
Q: "THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME COMING TO YOUR FIELD/PLAYING, HOW DOES IT WORK?"
A: Arrive by the time of your reservation. We start you when your whole group has arrived with waivers already filled out online and everyone has paid.
You will start off by playing with whoever you came with for a game, then you will be mixed in with general population (other individuals, groups, and regulars). We'll organize and run continuous big, fair games with the general population throughout the day.
Low Impact will of course only play with other low impact, and airsoft will only play with other airsofters.
Refs are in control and keep the games fair, safe, and fun. We play whatever style of games people want, from just a "death match" of trying to shoot everyone on the other team, capture the flag, or protect the fort!
Groups of 8 or more playing regular impact paintball have the option to play 100% by themselves, if you pay a $100 private group fee. Please add the private party add-on button when making your reservation if you'd like this (this is only necessary for Weekends, all Weekday groups are private).
Q: "HOW MANY PLAYING FIELDS DO YOU HAVE?"
A: We have 7 fields. Four woods area courses filled with bunkers/forts- 1 acre "Mini Woods", 2.5 acre "Small Woods", 4 acre woods "Murder Mountain", and 5 acre "Big Woods". Then an open field course filled with can bunkers to mimic "speedball" style fast pace paintball, and another open field urban style with bunkers, buses, and cars. Our newest course has a 3 level house on about 3 acres filled with bunkers. This course is great for playing siege scenarios! You will get to play on each course throughout the day.
Q: "WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR IMPACT PAINTBALL AND LOW IMPACT PAINTBALL?"
A: Regular Impact Paintball is played with air powered "guns" that shoot marble sized, paint filled balls (.68 caliber), that break and splatter on you upon impact. They shoot around 280 feet per second and are for 10 years and up.
The Low Impact Paintball is air powered gun as well, just smaller and shoots smaller (.50 cal) paintballs that shoot around 260 fps, and will hurt less. MAJORITY OF GROUP MUST BE AGES 6-9! Older friends/family in group are welcome to play as well.
Q: "WHAT IS AIRSOFT?"
A: Airsoft is played with our electronic guns, that shoot small plastic biodegradable bb's. They shoot at 350-450 feet per second and are for 10 years and up. There's no paint breaking on you like paintball, so it's more honor system of when you feel the hit, you call yourself out.

A: When you make a reservation, you should receive an email confirmation within 10 minutes or so. Check your "spam" box if you can't find it. You do not need to call or text with every player number update unless it is a drastic change. We count the number of players in your group based on the number of waivers filled out for the group.
