Younger kids’ attention spans and listening skills are not quite developed yet. It’s important that everyone’s having FUN! FUN! FUN! and your kids don’t get put off playing paintball since it does hurt when you get painted.

ATTENTION! When it comes to your kids age, don’t be a LIAR! Our Marshals do their very best to insure that the kids are having fun enjoying the paintball day, but it’s up to YOU at the end of the day, OK?
It’s better than nursing bumps and bruises and oweees, einas and explaining to the parents why their child sat out the whole day.
