Below is a list of common questions regarding Paintball. If you can not find what you are looking for then please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Is there an age requirement?
The minimum age to play is 10 years old for Paintball and 7 years old for Splatmaster. We encourage players to be 12 years of age for Open Play. All players must sign a waiver. If you are under 18 you must have a parent or guardian sign your waiver.
Is it safe to play Paintball?
Being a non- contact sport it does not have anywhere near the injuries of other sports like Soccer, Hockey or Basketball. When playing under professional, supervised conditions with proper equipment, it is statistically safer than golf or bowling!
Can i bring my own Paintballs?
Oakland Paintball Park is a field paint only park. All paintballs must be purchased on site from Oakland Paintball Park the day of play to ensure a safe environment. Anyone caught shooting outside paint will be asked to leave without refund.
Does it hurt when you get hit?
Yes, it stings for a few seconds similar to getting snapped with a wet towel. It do not sting for long though!
Will the paint wash out?
Actually, paintballs have no paint in them! They are a gelatin capsule, much like an Advil gel cap and the stuff inside is a food grade synthetic oil filler found in many household items like tooth-paste! You may get a few grease marks but rest assured, as our paint is all non-toxic, non-staining and completely water-soluble.
Can i bring Food and drinks?
You can bring any food and drinks that are legal to consume in a public park. No alcohol or drugs are allowed.
