Arrive at your Reserved Time
Make a reservation online and arrive at that time
Think of it like a restaurant reservation. If you booked at 7, you arrive at 7. You won’t be eating your steak at that time, but that is when you will get seated, get water, etc… same here! People always ask, “Do we need to arrive early?” No. You can if you wish, but it is not necessary.
When the group arrives, they first go in to the video briefing room to watch a five minute video. Then we provide them with their equipment and lead them out to the field for their first games. They won’t be back to the table area for about 20 minutes, so most party hosts use that time to set up any party decorations, cover tables, etc.
We have reserved a table for you!
Have a larger group? No problem. We'll reserve a few for you.
Some people just come play paintball or nerf – others want to cover the tables, bring decorations, etc. That’s great – but please do not use silly string or confetti. Keep in mind there isn’t wall space by the tables, so don’t bring wall decorations. The tables are standard eight foot long aluminum picnic tables.
We can also provide basic white paper plates, forks and napkins. If you want to add a splash of color like the picture on the left, feel free to bring in anything you want to dress up the table to fit the theme of your party.
Bring any food or drink you want.
Each location has a pizza place that delivers.
We have soda, popcorn, etc, but you are welcome to bring in a cooler (no alcohol) and any food you want. We suggest you wait until after you arrive to order food in, use the pizza or food as a break in the middle of the party, instead of showing up and trying to get these kids to sit down and eat! Let them blow off some steam first!
We will forward the number to the closest pizza place, but you may use any one you want!
Players are grouped by ages.
But dads can play with their kids. They are just big slow moving targets!
We keep the younger kids playing against only other younger kids – so your seven year old’s birthday party will not go out against a bachelor party! If you have younger kids – just dress them up with a layer or two and they should be fine!
We also call games of mixed ages, where parents and older siblings, etc., can go out and play with the younger kids. If your kids don’t have any older brothers or parents playing, they can simply wait for another game for just the 6-12 age bracket.
Can we bring spectators?
Sure, but we need to limit to not more than the number of players.
We have a limited amount of seating space, and need to keep it reserved for our players – so while you can bring in some hosts – or non-playing guests, we have to limit the number of non-playing guests. The rule is that non-playing guests cannot outnumber the number of people playing. So, if you have 10 people playing, you can bring up to 10 guests; if you have six players, you can bring up to six guests, etc.
If the number of guests outnumber the players, guests will be charged $10 each – if we have room for them. So when possible, have players car pool, or get dropped off and picked up when your event is over.
