Paintball Park Kidderminster strives to provide a really enjoyable day out for your child. We understand how important it is for you to organise your visit in the finest detail so that it is a fun, successful visit.
Let’s face it, taking a group of children to shoot at each other can be quite daunting. With that in mind, we have provided you with all the information you need to plan your day out including all the important information relevant to your risk assessment.
Paintballing is a brilliant way for your child to have a great time with their friends, improve on their teamwork and get outside. Children in the past have been blown away by our amazing game zones and have returned many times.
The 0.5c paintball equipment has been designed to be a low impact version of paintball because it uses smaller paintballs (0.50c rather than 0.68c) fired at a lower velocity. This version of the game has been designed for lower 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.
On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in, you won’t need to accompany the groups the paintball fields, unless you want to and tea and coffee is available at base camp.
Your children will be kitted out with all the gear needed for the day and then have the compulsory safety talk, you need to be at this. Then the action begins!
There will be 4-6 games during a 3 hour period with short refreshment breaks in between to reload paintballs and discuss tactics.
The day can be personalised to suit your needs and can be a half day experience if required.
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 are available to buy at the centre, but we would advise you to bring their own.
Visiting groups are responsible for the first aid needs of their group. Should a serious incident occur we have staff that are first aid trained.
When the safety talk is given by our marshals - your 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 game play etc.
Please note that our risk assessments are for guidance only and visit organisers are advised to complete their own risk assessment prior to a visit.

The importance of investing in corporate days out
Corporate days out, or team building days are hugely valuable for many reasons. Firstly team building days provide an opportunity for employees to engage in activities outside of the regular work environment and encourage teamwork, collaboration and communication whilst building relationships and bonding in a way that can lead to improved productivity back in the workplace. Engaging in fun activities outside of the office can boost morale and help employees feel valued and appreciated. They will see that the company values its employees’ well-being and is willing to invest in their happiness. The break from the routine of daily work provided by a corporate day out is also a great way to reduce stress and prevent burnout as employees are able to unwind, relax and recharge.
A paintball team building activity encourages communication, leadership skills, strategic thinking and problem-solving, as well as decision-making. All of these skills learned on a corporate day out can be transferred back into collaboration and efficiency in the work environment. Investing in corporate team building activities brings a great return by creating a positive work culture that is more likely to retain the talent in the team and the increased teamwork and collaboration will feed into greater productivity, which outweighs the initial investment.
What Are The Benefits of Kid’s Paintball?
Collaboration and communication
Paintballing requires teams to work together strategically to achieve a common objective and so it encourages participants to rely on each other, which promotes teamwork and camaraderie.
Paintball presents unpredictable situations which require quick thinking and fast decisions and teams have to adapt their strategies on the fly, making tactical choices to achieve their goals, which will develop the ability to make decisions under pressure.
Fun, Lasting memories
Ultimately, the main benefit of kids’ paintball is that it’s enormously great fun! Creating lasting memories with family and friends, what better way to let your youngster celebrate their birthday than with a paintballing party? Fresh air, exercise, strategy, competition, friendship, memory-building and happy, tired kids at the end of the day.
Encourage strategic and creative thinking
There are also massive mental benefits in playing kids paintball, as the games encourage strategic and creative thinking, improved reflexes and help them to develop social skills as they interact with their teammates.
Playing paintball also can develop leadership skills in your youngsters as they work together as teams, you’ll start to see your kids developing skills you didn’t know they had!
Safe & Pain Free
Kid’s paintball parties are safe, with low-impact paintballs giving around a third of the impact energy of a regular paintball, and the guns are lighter and more compact – meaning less weight to carry. The lower impact paintballs are also better for the gun’s gas efficiency which means the kids are less held up having to fill up gas tanks, meaning more time playing. The smaller paintballs also mean less paint, which keeps the mess to a minimum and also drastically reduces the likelihood that a hit will hurt, so keeping the games pain-free.
Another benefit of kids’ paintballing is the physical exercise it brings. By playing paintball, they’re getting physical exercise outside which is where natural sunlight gives them vitamin D, and the lowered anxiety and sensory overload are side benefits of physical exercise.
It’s a great workout – they have to keep moving and the physicality of the game will increase endurance and strength as well as burn calories – they’ll finish their games hungry and tired, ready for a great night’s sleep.
Emotional regulation and resilience
They learn emotional regulation and resilience as they have to learn to handle adrenaline, excitement and how to handle emotions during games as well as how to face challenges and setbacks to build emotional strength.

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.
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.
