No Time Limitations

At KW Paintball, we want everyone to feel included and be involved in the sport. That’s why we provide options for children under 11-years of age. These include GellyBall for ages 5+ and .50 caliber paintball for the transition between GellyBall and the real deal!

Great Outdoor Activity

It can be tough getting kids outdoors these days. Paintball and GellyBall let children play Call of Duty® in real life and gives them the chance to challenge their friends while getting some exercize!

Perfect for Parties

Safe & Engaging

As a non-contact sport, paintball is one of the safest sports out there. Our staff and referrees make sure kids don’t get too close in a game and ensure masks and barrel blockers are always on at the appropriate times.


GellyBall is an innovate way that bridges the gap between nerf guns and paintball. The gelly balls are soft and small gel balls like Orbeez™ or water beads that can explode on impact. Gelly balls are non-toxic and provide a very low impact, making this perfect for ages 5+.

Low Impact .50-Cal Paintball

For youngsters that are a bit more adventurous and want to play real paintball but aren’t quite ready for the sting of a normal paintball marker, these markers are lighter weight and shoot a smaller paintball. They shoot just as fast as a normal paintball gun but with a much softer impact. Kind of like getting flicked with a finger.

Frequently Asked Questions

For us parents, there are a few questions we’re going to have before planning an outting with the kids or rest of the family. Here are a few of the most asked questions we get for our kids activities.

Do Paintballs Hurt?

Standard .68 caliber paintballs don’t necessarily feel good. That’s why we have GellyBall and .50 caliber paintball equipment. .50 Caliber feels like a flick with your fingers while gelly balls are squishy and bouncy.

Can GellyBall players play with .50-cal players?

We do not allow players with different calibers of paintballs to play with each other unless they are using the same type of paintballs and marker. It creates an unfair advantage.

Are paintballs non-toxic?

Yes. Paintballs are made with a type of gelatin from corn starch and food coloring. They are technically edible… but they have an awful taste that’s similar to soap. They’re also biodegradable and safe for the environment.

Does paint come out of clothes?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer is as long as the clothes are washed right away. Paintballs are water based and are designed to wash out. The longer a paintball stain soaks into a piece of clothing, the harder it is to remove.

Does food deliver out to the paintball field?

Yes, popular places are Papa John’s and Domino’s. 

Can we bring food and drinks?

Absolutely. Just let us know ahead of time so we can secure a spot for your group to stage if you plan on bringing a fair amount of food and drinks. But please, no grilling. We are liable if anything were to happen.
