Have Questions? We Get That A Lot! Check Out Our Most Frequently Asked Questions Below.
Q: How old do you have to be to play?
A: The minimum age required to play at our facility is 6 years old. There are, however, some children that we may deem too small to play if they cannot properly hold the paintball gun.
Q: How much does it cost to play?
A: We have different pricing options depending on the size of your group. See the group pricing page ( https://www.sdpaintball.com/pages/purchase-discount-paintball-tickets). If you come to play without a group, we offer three pricing options for individual players. See the individual player pricing page ( https://www.sdpaintball.com/pages/prices).
