Information for our children’s paintball birthday parties

PPK strives to provide an enjoyable day out for your child, and a stress-free one for the adults! We understand how important it is for you to organise your visit in the finest detail so that it is a fun, successful visit. With that in mind, we have provided you with all the important information you need to plan your child’s party.

  • Our equipment for juniors

    The 0.50cal paintball equipment has been designed to be a low-impact version of paintball because it uses smaller paintballs (0.50cal rather than 0.68cal) fired at a lower velocity. This version of the game has been designed for younger ages, although it’s still just as fun for kids of all ages!

    The equipment has been engineered so kids (and adults!) ages 8+ can easily cock, load and fire the markers ensuring your child will enjoy hours and hours of safe, outdoor fun.

  • Parents and older children

    Our base camp area provides a comfortable space with covered seating and facilities to purchase hot and cold food and drinks while your kids are running around letting off steam. Parents and older siblings are, of course, welcome to join in the excitement and fun in an epic paintball game alongside their kids if they choose.

  • Clothing

    It’s important that the children wear comfortable clothes and may also want to bring a change of clothes. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support and deep tread, rubber soles – it can be muddy, wet and slippery in the woodlands. Paintball gloves and body armour will be provided as standard.

  • First Aid and Safety

    Should first aid be needed we have trained staff on site. When the safety talk is given by our marshals – you will need to manage behaviour so that the children are listening to the really important rules of safety such as not removing their goggles during gameplay play etc. Please note that our risk assessments are for guidance only and visit organisers are advised to complete their own risk assessment before a visit.

  • Why is paintballing a good activity for kids?

    There are a wide range of reasons that paintballing is great for kids, such as:

    • Physical activity – running and dodging is an excellent source of physical activity and helps them to stay active while having a blast.
    • Teamwork and communication – they learn to strategise and work together which helps them to learn important social skills and cooperation.
    • Critical thinking and problem-solving – as a strategic game that requires quick decisions under pressure, it helps them learn mental agility and improves decision-making abilities.
    • Sportsmanship and fair play – it helps them to learn how to follow rules and play with integrity – with marshals to help enforce the rules.
    • Outdoor adventure – helps them to benefit from fresh air and engage with the natural world away from screens.
    • Emotional regulation and resilience – they learn to handle adrenaline, excitement and manage their emotions during games as well as develop resilience when dealing with challenges and setbacks.
    • Fun – it’s incredibly fun and helps to develop lasting memories with family and friends.
  • What to wear to a paintball party?

    Your paintballing party participants need to wear suitable clothing for the day as choosing the wrong clothing will make your youngsters uncomfortable. They should wear loose and comfortable clothing that allows for free movement. Long sleeves and trousers are recommended to help protect arms and legs from bumps and scrapes and layers are ideal as you can remove or add them to regulate temperature during the day.

    Fully enclosed footwear is essential to protect the feet from injuries, such as trainers or hiking shoes, and shoes that support the ankles are ideal. Older clothing that you don’t mind getting paint on is ideal, and darker colours will help your team to blend into the background – making it harder for the opposition to hit you!

    When you arrive, protective clothing will be supplied, such as overalls, chest protectors, masks and goggles and all players must follow the instructions given – to wear these properly – as they will help to prevent any injuries. Your group should be encouraged to bring a change of clothing for the end of the games (and a plastic bag!), as it will prevent getting paint stains and other dirt inside your vehicle on the way home at the end of the day. For more information, see our blog.

  • How long does a kid’s paintball birthday party typically last?

    The paintball birthday party can last as long as you want it to! If you’ve got a very active bunch of livewires, you might want to book for a whole day, although some youngsters – especially younger teams – may find that a half-day is enough and they’re flagging after a few hours of intense adrenaline.

    You need to be the judge of how long your crew will cope and book for the relevant time slot. Our expert team can help you judge whether to book a half or a full day’s activity for your youngster’s paintballing party 

  • How many paintballs do you need for a half day session?

    You’ll need at least 300 paintballs for a half day session for your kids to really make the most of their paintballing party experience. Chat with our team about how many paintballs to purchase for the length of time that your kid’s birthday party will last.  

  • Is it Safe? What protective equipment is supplied?

    Paintballing for kids at PPK is a little different (and safer) than the standard game. As well as a compulsory safety briefing at the start of the session, and all the standard protective gear that includes masks, body armour and overalls, we provide a different paintball gun for kids. The 0.5c paintball gun is designed for children and is a low-impact version of a standard paintball gun, using smaller paintballs that are fired at a lower velocity. There will be safety equipment provided such as masks, goggles, chest protectors and gloves. You can upgrade these when you arrive if you wish, although it will entail an additional charge.  

  • Does it hurt to get shot?

     Everybody has a different pain threshold which makes this a tough one to answer definitively, but the smaller paintballs and lower velocity of the childrens’ paintball game generally make an impact feel like a firm flick to the skin. We have a more detailed explanation of what to expect if you’d like to know a little more.

  • How do you play kids paintball?

    ? Our highly experienced marshals will explain all of this in detail at the briefing and throughout your day with us, but they have also provided a comprehensive guide to the game that you can read for yourself.

  • What do you need to bring on the day?

    All the protective equipment will be supplied by us, so your children just need to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. All our paintball games take place outside, so there is a high likelihood that your kids could get muddy, and being hit with paint is almost a certainty, so choose appropriately! You can bring lunch and snacks if you wish, but if you’re booking a full-day session, lunch is provided as well as snacks and drinks being available all day at our base camp. Make sure that any additional clothing accessories, such as watches, glasses or earrings are either removed before paintballing or securely fastened.
