At the forefront of paintball safety is the mask. NR Adventure Park provides rental masks that are ASTM safety certified, ensuring that they can withstand the impact of paintballs. These masks are not just a precaution; they are mandatory during active gameplay. They're designed to cover and protect players' eyes, ears, and the face, which are particularly vulnerable during the game. With a universal fit, they're suitable for most participants, ensuring that everyone has access to the highest safety standards.

Barrel Covers: The Unsung Heroes

In the safe zones, where excitement is high and adrenaline pumps, the risk of accidental discharge from a paintball marker is neutralized by the humble barrel cover. These bags are engineered to catch any unintended shots, providing peace of mind as players strategize for their next round. NR Adventure Park insists on the use of barrel covers that meet high quality design standards, reaffirming their commitment to safety.

Tippmann Chest Protector

While some protection is mandatory, there's additional gear that, while optional, comes highly recommended, especially for younger players. Gloves and chest protectors add an extra layer of defense against the sting of a paintball. These items can often be rented or purchased at parks and might be included in select package deals. NR Adventure Park ensures these options are available as an option when booking.

Safety Briefing: Knowledge is Power

Safety Netting for Players and Spectators Alike

Every field at NR Adventure Park is a fortress, safeguarded by safety netting. This netting serves as a barrier, keeping both players and spectators safe from any stray paintballs. It's a physical reminder of the park's safety-first policy, ensuring that the excitement of the game never compromises the well-being of anyone on or off the field.
