Good clean fun gets messy at Paintball City, but the good news is that the splattered and stained overalls get returned to the owners and all you leave with are good memories and maybe a few bruises. The bruises fade, but the memories remain. Paintball is a game in which players eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with pellets containing a paint-like substance usually shot from a carbon dioxide or compressed-gas powered paintball gun. Two opposing teams aim to eliminate all of the other team's players or to complete some other objective, such as retrieving a flag. No need to worry about injuries as insurance statistics show that paintball is one of the safest sports, with fewer injuries per exposure than sports like football, soccer, basketball, baseball, golf, and bowling.
Paintball City is open from Wednesday to Sunday with two sessions from 8:30-12:30 or 13:00-17:00 for fans of this popular sport. Experts call them markers and 150 semi-automatic paintball guns are available for rent during any of the sessions. Masks, chest protectors and overalls can be rented separately if you own your own gun or marker. There is stocked tuck shop that provides anything as you are guaranteed to work up an appetite while running around the wide variety of playing fields. There are numerous bush fields for the recreational player and two airball fields stocked with Xball bunkers for the Paintball regulars. Painting the town red has never been such fun.
