Paintball is an exciting and entertaining sport where two opposing teams try to eliminate each other while attempting to complete various objectives. The two teams compete using paintball markers that are powered by pressured gas. The markers propel a safe, non-toxic, washable gelatin capsule filled with water based paint and mineral oil. You eliminate a opponent when they are marked by the paintballs. A team is victorious when they have successfully eliminated all opposing players or complete the main objective of the paintball game.
Is paintball safe?
Yes. Paintball is extremely safe as long as the safety rules are followed. According to insurance statistics paintball is safer than golf, bowling, and almost every other sport out there. An eye injury is the only way you can get seriously injured as a direct result of playing paintball.
Eye injuries are easily prevented as long as everyone follows two basic safety rules. By following these two rules, it is very unlikely for an injury to occur. The first is goggles must be on anytime you are on the paintball field during a paintball game. The second is to have your barrel cover on when not on the paintball field.
Do paintballs hurt when you get hit?
There is a bit of a sting, similar to being snapped with a rubber band, or towel. However, we do our best to limit close range encounters and we insure a referee is on field at all times up holding the safety rules.
Who can play?
Almost anybody can play! Paintball appeals to people of all ages. Millionaire Paintball’s regular minimum age is 8 years of age. However, we can offer younger players the opportunity to play with similar aged peers such as during a birthday party. Anyone under the age of eighteen must also have their legal guardian sign and date a RELEASE OF LIABILITY FORM.
What to bring?
We supply players with all the necessary protective equipment that will be needed. However, we do recommend that people wear old, dark clothing such as jeans or sweats, and some good footwear. Also a toque or baseball hat is a good idea, as not only does it protect your head, but it makes the goggles and face masks more comfortable. We recommend bringing 20 to 30 dollars just in case you want some upgrades or more paintballs. Also, we have plenty of drinks available.
Can you bring your own equipment and paintballs?
You can bring your own paintball marker, and other paintball equipment. We only allow paintball goggles made by a reputable manufacturer. The paintballs must be purchased directly from Millionaire Paintball.
