A traditional paintball is a .68 caliber ball. While it does not hurt very much if you are more then 100 feet away, it can sting more if you are closer. The minimum age to play this type of paintball is 10 years old. As a parent, you have to decide when they are ready to play traditional paintball. If your child is 12 or less, we definitely recommend they try the low impact paintball game first. We do not want any kids to play traditional paintball, get hit by the ball and never want to play again. While this isn’t the norm, some kids (and adults) don’t like paintball because they got hit at too close of a distance or played somewhere where the guns’ velocity wasn’t checked properly. We want everyone to LOVE paintball!
We recommend low impact paintball for kids 7-14 years of age. The only difference between low impact paintball and traditional paintball is the size of the paintball itself. The low impact paintball is smaller than a normal .68 caliber paintball. A low impact paintball will travel almost as far as a .68 caliber paintball, but since it’s a lot smaller, so is the impact! All the fun of traditional paintball with way less sting!
