Paintball Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Can I play Paintball at the Brentwood and Thurrock venues?

We currently only offer Paintball parties at our Colchester venue.

What should the kids wear?

Paintball - Our paintballs are water soluble and do not stain, however we do also provide coveralls. We advise children to wear outdoor appropriate clothing with long sleeves under the coveralls, and appropriate footwear for sporting activities (i.e. trainers!)

Are there any extra costs on the day?

​No! For our Paintball parties we refill your paintballs at the start of each game, which is more than enough ammo for every game. 

What happens if we can't find your site?

On the day of your party we place large outdoor roadsigns pointing you in the direction of our entrance from the location that your satnav will lead you to! Furthermore in our DOWNLOADS section we have provided accurate directions!

 

If you're worried about finding us, feel free to give us a call and arrange a time to come down and see the site for yourself!

Are Splatkidz Paintball games like adult Paintball?

For those familiar with paintball, our markers do have some similar characteristics on the surface. But dig a little deeper and you'll find that they really offer something totally new.


 •First, our markers are powered by spring pressure, not compressed air or CO2. This results in the Ammo only travelling between 110  to 140 feet per second versus normal paintball markers where the paintballs travel at 300 feet per second.

•Second, the paintballs we use are smaller in size than standard paintballs, and when you include that characteristic with the reduced speed the Ammo travels at, it results in less energy - which means, less impact and considerably less “ouch”.

•Last, our paintballs have a special shell and fill that is designed to break on contact travelling at the low speeds of the markers.rs.

What Does it Feel Like to Get Hit?

This is the number one question new players and parents ask. Our Ammo has been developed and designed to shoot straight, break on contact, and clean up easily with water. The way it’s been described by 8+ kids is that it has a minor sting, like that of a small, thin rubber band.
When the Ammo hits something or someone it will break most of the time, especially on hard services like the provided chest protectors, or muscle/firm parts of the body. We say, “most”, because there are times when the Ammo may hit a “soft” part of the body and bounce.

Is it like Indoor LaserTag?

Many kids have played indoor and outdoor LaserTag, however our system really is something totally new.  Our Laser guns are a state of the art design, and can be fully programmed to replicate a wide range of weapon types.  Coupled with the realistic recoil action, and amazing sound effects, the system is super accurate and intelligent, so can tell if you've taken 'splash damage' by being too close to a team mate who was taken out.  It really is like playing a live action, immersive video game, but in the outdoors!

Can I play LaserTag at your Colchester, Thurrock & Brentwood sites?

Yes!  We offer LaserTag at all three of our venues (subject to availability)
