FAQ

What is Paintball?  

Paintball is a sport of shooting paintballs out of a paintball marker (some call it a gun) using compressed air.  It is a very safe and fun sport of shooting paintballs at the other team of players.


What is a paintball made of?

A paintball is a thin-skinned gelatin capsule with a colored liquid (paint) inside.  Very similar to a medicine capsule that is filled with medicine.


Does it hurt?

At Adventure Park Paintball we require that all paintball markers be set (chronographed) at no higher than 280 feet per second. At this speed the feeling is very similar to being snapped by a rubber band.  We offer FREE chronographing  (or setting) of the speed of your paintball marker.


Is it safe?

Yes.  An independent insurance did a recent study that has shown that more people are injured during a one year period while playing Golf, Tennis and even Bowling than are injured while playing Paintball.

Do you explain the rules and let everyone know what is expected?

Everyone is required to watch safety video and take part in a safety briefing for our field's specific rules.  We also have trained referees during every game that keep things safe and fun.  Those not abiding by our rules to keep this a fun and safe family game will be asked to leave.  If you would like, we have placed a copy of the safety video on our website for you to review.

How old do I need to be?

The minimum age to play at Adventure Park Paintball is ten (10) years old. And please do not forget to bring your signed parental waiver with you.

Can I play by myself?

The Paintball Park is open every Saturday and Sunday for open play.  You can come by yourself but we recommend that you bring a couple of friends to have fun too!  We always encourage you to make a reservation.  This way we can assure that we have plenty of equipment and staff on hand.

How do I make a reservation?

You can call (319)453-5530 to make a reservation.

Will it stain my clothes?

The paint used in our paintballs is non-staining.  If left in your clothing over time, anything will stain so we recommend that you wash your clothes soon after play.

Do I need to bring or wear anything special?

We would recommend that you don't have a lot of bare skin so long pants and long sleeve shirts are nice.  Don't come with flip flops or sandals and although our paint is non-staining, we would recommend that you don't bring your best clothes.

Do I need to have my parent with me?

If you are under eighteen (18) you must have a parent's signature on the waiver form.  You can download the waiver on our website listed under safety information.

Do you have a gun and protective mask for me to rent?

Yes, but there is a set number of rental packages that we have, we recommend calling ahead to reserve the equipment to be assured that we do not run out when you arrive.

Do you have a store?

We have a proshop located at the outdoor location that offers many paintball items.

Do you service paintball equipment?

We have a certified paintball technician for many of the guns, hoppers and other paintball gear.  Many times you can wait while your equipment is being repaired.

Can I bring food or drink?

Paintball is an extreme sport and you should  make sure that you stay hydrated and nourished.  You are welcome to bring food and drinks to our outdoor location.




Can I bring paint I bought from my local store?

We are a field paint only playing field.  We do this for many reasons but here are a few:

  >  Poor quality paint will only ruin your day as your marker breakes the paintballs instead of shooting them.
  >  Some paintballs stain clothing.
  >  Old paint can become hard and cause bruising.
  >  Yes, we make a profit from paint sales.  We use this to ensure that you have a funfilled, entertained, safe day of playing paintball.
