Frequently Asked Paintball Questions
What's the minimum age?
A: For Paintball and Airsoft it is 12 years old. For players 8 years old and above we have "Low impact" Paintball (see the Junior Paintball or Low Impact Paintball links).
Do you have to book?
A: Yes, we do sometimes have slots available for last minute bookings but try to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Half / Full Day?
A: None of our packages are timed, so it just depends how 'Trigger Happy' you are as to which package is suitable. Junior Paintball Games are Half Day only. See Junior Paintball page for details.
How many paintballs will I use?
A: Average usage is from 300 balls for a half day up to 600 balls for a full day.
What time do games start?
A: On weekends all games start at 10.00am due to the Safety Brief being given at that time. For midweek group bookings start times are sometimes flexible. Junior and 'Low Impact' Paintball Games at Thetford & Northwold have sessions of either 9:30am to 12:30pm or 1pm to 4pm.
Can individuals join in?
A: Yes, we can accommodate all group sizes.
What do I need to bring?
A: Sturdy outdoor footwear with ankle support is ideal (trainers are ok but will get dirty) comfortable clothing and a change of clothing for winter months.
Can I bring my own gun?
A: We allow players to use their own guns once we have checked them for safety. (We also have "Walk-On" events once a month exclusively for players with their own kit).
How many games will I play?
A: Up to 12 in a full day.
How long does each game last?
A: Game length depends on the scenario, games can last from 5mins for intense fast fire games, up to 20min for stealth and tactical games.
What happens if I get shot out?
A: Then you will be eliminated for that game. Once the game / half is completed you will be resurrected for the next game.
