Paintball is a type of extreme sport. Two opposing teams compete using paintball markers that are powered by compressed air. The markers propel a safe, non-toxic, washable gelatin capsule filled with water based paint. Opponents are eliminated when they are marked by the paintballs. Marker hits as well as goggles hits do count as an elimination.
We recommend that each player wear clothing that covers most of the body, such as jeans, long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, or hoodies. The less exposed skin, the better!
We supply your safety gear as part of your entrance fee.
Allowed Equipment – You can bring your own paintball markers and goggles. However, you must have goggles that are manufactured specifically for paintball.
Non-Permissible Equipment – You may not bring your own paintballs. Our facility sells reasonably priced paintballs – this allows us to regulate the type of ammo used in order to prevent injuries.
We do allow walk-on players (particularly for our standard .68 caliber paintball, and airsoft play), but we recommend making an online reservation – we make it super easy!
A bit. It can sting – the feeling is similar to getting snapped with a rubber band or towel.
Since most of our play is with low impact .50 caliber paintballs, the sting is less intense. Again, we recommend dressing for the occasion, the less exposed skin the better!
Are you a “sipper” or a “gulper?” It all depends on you!
How aggressive do you play? If you’ve got a bit of an itchy trigger finger, you’ll go through them fast. However, on average, 250 paintballs per hour is a good estimate.
Yes, it does. Surprisingly enough, paintballs don’t actually contain paint. They are composed of a gelatin capsule (like a liquid gel pain reliever) and the inside is a product called PEG.
PEG is a food grade synthetic oil filler. While PEG may leave small grease-like marks, you won’t have to worry about hot pink or neon green stains on your clothing. The paintballs we use are non-staining, no-pigment, and non-toxic.
However, we don’t recommend wearing your *nice* clothes.
At the outdoor facility, players can enjoy open play on both Saturdays and Sundays. We do ask that you call ahead to confirm the number of players participating in the sport.
If you’re looking to play during the week, you can book a private party (8 or more people) to play airsoft.
We make it simple – if you’re filling out a waiver for minors, you can add up to up six children to one parent or legal guardian’s waiver form.
However, if you are hosting a party, we require that the parent or legal guardian of each participant complete the form.
All players must sign a waiver before being able to play at Steeltown Paintball Park. We only accept online waivers which can be filled out HERE. Once you have filled out the waiver, you do not have to fill one out for an entire year! We will be verifying everyone’s waiver by First name, Last name, and Date of Birth.
We are willing to accommodate groups and birthday parties by opening the field to them on specific days of the week for private sessions if requested. Please contact us at least one week prior to the session. You can contact us via email at email@example.com or by scheduling over the phone at (412) 443-9287.
Of course! As long as you pick up and take home what you bring, you can decorate to your heart’s content!
We allow coolers, but again – no alcohol is allowed on site.
