Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

What is the age requirement to play paintball and airsoft?


You must be 10 years old to play paintball or airsoft with a parent and/or guardian required to sign off on the waiver for play.  You must be 8 years old to participate in Low-impact paintball with a parent and/or guardian required to sign off on the waiver for play.  No exceptions.


What is paintball?


Paintball is a team-based activity which players eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with dye-filled gelatin capsules called paintballs, which break upon impact. A player is considered eliminated once the player is “marked” by a paintball. Games typically last 10-20 minutes depending on the size of the field and number of players on each team.


What is airsoft?


Airsoft is very similar to paintball, the main difference being that you shoot plastic BBs or pellets from replica firearms.  These do not leave any “marks” to confirm an elimination, however, you use the honor system to call yourself out. You also may be called out if a referee witnesses you being “hit” by a pellet.  Hits to the replica firearm does not count as an elimination.

Do I need to make a reservation to play?

You do not need to make a reservation to play general walk-on games during regular hours (9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday). Just show up, pick your walk-on package for either paintball or airsoft, and have FUN!

We do require at least 24 hours notice if you would like to book a private group, you will not play against any of the other groups making this ideal for birthday parties, youth groups, and corporate team building. Click here for Private Group options.


Will paintballs stain my clothes?


Paintballs are spherical, gelatin capsules filled with colored liquid inside.  The liquid inside a paintball is non-toxic, water-soluble and biodegradable. It rinses out of clothing and skin with mild soap and water.


What should I wear to play paintball?


We recommend wearing clothes you don’t mind getting dirty that are comfortable to run and maneuver in when coming out to play paintball.  Long-sleeve shirts and pants are recommended. If you are concerned with the sting you feel from the paintball, you can always wear an additional layer of clothes. We recommend you wear boots or closed-toe shoes with non-slip soles while out on the paintball fields. We also sell jumpsuits to help keep you clean in the pro shop. 


Can I bring my own paintballs?


We do not allow our guests to bring paintballs that are not purchased from our facility. We only sell the highest quality, environmentally friendly paintballs. This allows us to control the quality of paintballs that are being shot through our equipment and at the paintball park. G.I. Sportz paintballs have a bright fill to confirm eliminations and break on impact.


Do I need to wear cleats?


NR Adventure Park is an all-terrain environment. You do not need to wear cleats, however if you have some, they can help provide additional traction on the fields. We recommend you wear boots or closed-toe shoes with non-slip soles while out on the paintball fields.


How does Low-Impact Paintball differ from regular Paintball?


Low-impact paintball is very similar to paintball, however, it features ammunition that is less than half the size of a traditional paintball.  (.50 caliber paintballs versus the standard .68 caliber paintballs).  The Low-impact paintball equipment is also lighter, and the paintballs deliver less of a sting upon impact.  These are the main reasons why low-impact paintball is perfect for beginners, families, youth groups and anyone else looking to have a fun time playing paintball!
