At Hollywood Sports Park, Paintball is more closely related to tag and dodge ball than to any other sport or activity. Paintball games last 10-20 minutes and have set objectives ranging from capture the flag to elimination of the other team (like in dodge ball). In all paintball games, a player is eliminated when they are “marked” by a paintball.
A paintball is a round, thin-skinned gelatin capsule with colored liquid inside it. Paintballs are similar to large round vitamin capsules or bath oil beads. The fill inside paintballs is non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluble and biodegradable. It rinses out of clothing and off skin with mild soap and water.
Paintball is a high adrenaline, highly strenuous game where participants shoot each other with paintball projectiles at a high rate of speed. You may be subject to bruising from such impact and/or minor scratches or cuts from running, jumping and rolling around in rugged terrain.
We suggest you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing that cover as much exposed skin as possible. Hooded sweatshirts, sweat pants, and good running shoes with ankle support are suggested in cooler weather. During summer or when it is hot out, please choose light weight clothing that can breath easy to keep you cool and covered from the sun at the same time. Hollywood Sports has a huge shop where you can purchase a large selection of paintball apparel.
The sting of the paintball is part of the mystique of the game. So, while getting “marked” by a paintball might sting a little, the sensation is similar to getting snapped by a rubber band and will usually go away in a couple seconds.
