If you'd love to get involved, here are are top paintballing FAQs to help you with your planning...
Can anyone do paintballing at Heatherton?
As long as you're at least 10 years old and game for a challenge! We recommend younger participants play with an adult.
What should I wear?
Wear old clothing and footwear suitable for outdoors - game zones and pathways can be slippery so footwear must have good grip. Coveralls and masks are included and you can hire additional body armour if needed.
Will the paint wash off my clothes?
Although you wear overalls the paint can sometimes seep through to your clothes underneath. However, the paint is water based and should wash off.
Does paintballing hurt?
Many players compare being hit by a paintball to being flicked by a rubber band but everyone's pain tolerance is different.
How much it hurts depends on the speed of the shot, how far away you are from the shooter and where they hit you! You may have a bruise to remind you of your paintballing experience but any pain should fade after a few seconds.
How many different paintball challenges are there?
There are 6 thrilling battle zones to take on...
Flags - Capture the enemy base and raise their flag while holding off an attack on your own!
Fort - Storm the walls, eliminate the defenders and capture the fort!
Canister - Claim the canister and break enemy lines to plant the canister in their base.
General - Take out the snipers and battle your way through an enemy ambush to get the general to safety!
Old Assault - Enter enemy territory, recover all 6 flags from the battle zone and return them to base.
Survivor - It's every man for himself....until there's just one brave person left standing!
