How It Works

How Does This Paintball Thing Work?

We get this question literally every day. The process is quite simple. So I will outline it for you below in a step by step format. Remember that if you ever have any questions you can feel free to contact us!

Buying Your Tickets: How It Works

Step 1- View your package options by clicking HERE.

Step 2- Once you pick a package you can purchase it directly through our website HERE.

Step 3- Once you have purchased your tickets online we will call you to schedule your time.

IMPORTANT- Reservations as mentioned above are NOT REQUIRED but are highly recommended. You can guarantee your start time by making one. Otherwise, we take in groups based on availability.

Preparing for Paintball: How It Works

Step 1- Bring comfortable loose fitting clothing. NOTHING will stain as long as you wash the clothing within a few days of playing. We only use water based paintballs with no actual paint in them.

Step 2- Arrive for your reservation or desired start time 10-15 minutes early. We have to safety brief all players and get you geared up to play. This takes time. Come early to get in the action faster!

Step 3- Are you meeting people here? Make sure that everyone in your group has correct directions on how to get here. You can get custom directions to the park by just clicking HERE.

IMPORTANT- Paintball is FUN! Don't forget to bring a good attitude to the park. You will only enjoy your experience if you allow yourself to do so. If you feel scared, afraid, anxious, or nervous then just remember that paintball is safer than just about any other sport you can play. Simply follow the rules and most of all trust that we will keep you safe by providing a fun safety oriented environment.

The Actual Games: How It Works

Once you have been safety briefed and have your equipment in hand you are now ready to play. Depending on your play package and how your group is setup you will either be playing with just your group or with other public groups. To learn more about how to play private games with just your group give us a call.

You will head onto the field and be split up into two teams. Each team will go to their side of the field and prepare for the game to start.

Once the paintball game starts the players will be able to shoot their paintball guns across the field at the opposing team. Each game will have a specific objective depending on what your group decides to play.

Some of our game types include:

Capture the Flag


Protect the President

Buzzer Beater (A Personal Favorite)

King of the Hill


IMPORTANT- A lot of people ask us. How many games will we play? The answer to that is hard to determine and here is why... Each group and each set of games will be different as you can see above. Different groups shoot at different rates and different game types take longer than others.

What you NEED to know...

Since San Diego Paintball Park is an Indoor Paintball facility you will play much more games in a short period of time versus an outdoor park. When you go play outdoors they will say you have all day to play... And trust me, you will need it. Each walk to the individual fields can be over 1/4 mile walk to and from. Sounds tiring to me. I would rather walk 50 feet from my groups table area into the playing field...

Just another reason why we offer the most optimal paintball experience in San Diego.
