FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
A paintball is a round, thin-skinned gelatin capsule, with colored liquid inside of it. Paintballs are similar to large round vitamin capsules or a bath oil bead. 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. Paintballs are even edible, although we don’t recommend it
Low impact is a smaller paintball that travels at a lower velocity. It’s perfect for players who have not played before or don’t want to play with experienced players. Player choosing this only use our paintball guns
Traditional paintball will have more of an impact than low impact. It’s perfect for people who have already played before, or who want a more tactical experience. Players are allowed to bring their own paintball guns.
The sting of the paintball hit is what makes this game unique. The thrill of running and jumping, dodging the paintball goes right back to your childhood, and the competition of trying to make the point to win the overall game just adds to the rush. So although getting “marked” by a paintball might sting a little, the sensation is similar to getting popped with a towel and will usually go away in a couple seconds.
During the summer months always carry bug spray and sunscreen. Application of bug spray should be done before you play and will keep the pests off you while on our many courses. Avoid using bug spray near your goggles. It will damage goggle lenses and other plastic equipment. In the winter lip-balm and good warm gloves are a must. Remember, we are outdoors so dress for it.
The most important safety precaution in the sport of paintball is the full face goggles. We require all participants to wear full-face mask system with ear protection. All visitors to Central Avenue Paintball are given a safety briefing every time they visit the park. This briefing explains the important safety rules at the park, along with how to properly use the equipment and play the game. We also require guests to chronograph their markers before each game. This allows us to make sure no guests are exceeding the maximum velocity of 285 fps (feet per second).
Paintballs are made of a gelatin shell, the same material that a Tylenol capsule is made of. The RPS Marballizer paintballs that we use have a fill of vegtable oil and food coloring. Our paintballs will not stain your clothes, they are composed of a water soluble fill material. One of the main reasons we insist on our Field Paint only policy and that you have to buy our paintballs is so that a staining paintball can not be brought in and used without our knowledge.
We offer Tippmann 98’s or BT Combats as our basic rental marker. These guns are good for 3-4 balls per second with a accuracy range of approximately 100 feet. We also provide a full face goggle, 200 round loader, a 48 ci compressed air tank that is good for 500 shots before you have to refill and a barrel sleeve for safety.
Yes, but we will inspect your equipment to make sure it meets our safety standards.
- All goggles must be full-face masks and be unaltered. There can be no cracks in the lenses at all.
- Paintball markers and airsoft markers are allowed to be brought in. A staff member will test them before you play to ensure they are safe to use. The decision of CAP staff is final.
- Barrel sleeves are required on all paintball markers.
- All CO2 or High Pressure tanks must be in test date. High-pressure fiber wrap tanks may not have any cracks or fraying and can’t have any stickers, decals or other coverings on them. Maximum velocity is 285 fps.
Central Avenue Paintball is a field paint only facility. By enforcing that you purchase all paintballs from us, we are able to ensure that: no staining or hazardous paintballs are being used, no frozen or nonbreaking paintballs are being used as well as keeping the environment clean with paintballs that we know are ecofriendly and made here in the USA.
You want to dress according to the season. Long pants and long sleeve shirts are always recommended, if nothing but to provide a barrier between the paintball and your skin should you get hit. Do not worry about the paint itself, it washes out with water. The dirt and clay from the fox holes and trenches will cause more damage to your clothing and footwear. So dress appropriately. Summer time warrants light colored clothes so as to not attract any more heat than what is already obvious. Winter time justifies a sweat shirt or hoodie, so not only will it keep you warm, but also provide plenty of padding. Don’t go to crazy on the clothing. If you have too many layers you will not be able to run around, crawl and jump in those fox holes. You will mimick the pillsbury doughboy and just be an easy target that can not get out of the way.
