WHAT'S NEXT?

Step 1 : Get commitments from your guests so you're not dropped at the last minute. In certain cases, we recommend collecting the money from them in advance, so you have something to hold over them. ;-)

Step 3 : Remember that the only stupid question is an unasked question. We are always willing to answer any question, even if we've heard it a thousand times before. Rather have clarity, than misunderstand.

TIPS AND RULES:

1. NEVER TAKE OFF YOUR MASK!!!

The first and most important rule of paintball - NEVER TAKE OFF YOUR MASK! We can't say it enough. Your eyesight is the only thing paintball can damage permanently. Your mask prevents that. We have a 100% safety record in this respect, and we'd like to keep it that way. DON'T TAKE OFF YOUR MASK. We will yell at you. Like you're a two year old. Loudly. Its embarrassing.

2. Have fun with others as you'd have them have fun with you

That may not make a whole lot of sense, but basically, don't come here with the aim of hurting someone. It's not cool. No-one likes to be over-killed, or shot at point blank range, or shot after they've surrendered. We want everyone to leave our field telling everyone they meet what a blast they had - not that some idiot lit them up so badly they're never going to set foot on a paintball field again. And honestly, do you really want to be that idiot? I didn't think so.

3. Preferably, no children under the age of 10

Children under the age of 10 don't usually have the maturity or the attention span to play paintball with the safety level that we like to maintain. We know there are other ranges out there that don't have this rule at all, we just like to warn parents that the age thing can be an issue. That being said, we can make arrangements for special circumstances.

4. Wear sensible shoes and pants

Lets think this one through. Hmm. I'm going to go play paintball, in the bush, with trenches. Let me wear a dress and high heels. Um...NO! Or. Hmm. I've had a late night. I think I'll just wear shorts and go bare foot. Um...NO! People seriously! This is war! Not gym!

5. The paint does wash out

6. Paintball teaches kids to love war

No. It teaches them the benefit of working as a team, thinking strategically, and the dangers of weapons. Plus. Its fun. And a lot less real than any of the first-person shooter PS3 games out there, which encourage your child to murder people. We just encourage them to concentrate, use their hand eye co-ordination, and expect the person they shot in this game to be after them in the next...

7. Alcohol and Drugs

For your safety and the safety of others, the consumption of alcohol and drugs that may impair your judgement or co-ordination is not allowed before or during your visit. DO NOT bring alcohol or drugs onto the premises. Gungho Paintball reserves the right to eject any player(s) from the field without a refund should we think they may be a danger to themselves or others. We have been down this road, many times. Its not pretty.
