Paintball Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does Paintball Cost?
For the average paintball player in Columbus Ohio, you can expect to pay between $35 – $55 per player. The main difference in cost per player is how many paintballs you shoot throughout the day. Some players are more aggressive, sneaky, and like to make their shots count. Others like to stay in the back and cover their friends with a heavy-gunner attitude. Either way, you’re looking at about $25 to get in the door if you’re renting equipment, plus the cost of your paintballs.
What Is Low Impact Paintball?
How Do I Make a Reservation?
First of all, reservations are required ONLY for private groups. Anyone is welcome to play as a “walk on” and mix in with the other beginner or advanced players at the park every Saturday & Sunday without a reservation! If you’re looking for a private paintball event, where you only play amongst yourselves, a reservation is required. As long as you get in touch with us a minimum of 48 hours in advance, you can make a reservation for your next paintball birthday party, corporate outing, or just a fun event at LVL UP Sports any day of the week! Please call use (614) 313-1382, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form to set a date.
What Is a Private Party?
A Private Group means that your paintball group will have it’s own referee and your group will not mix in with the regular walk-on players! There are a few choices when it comes to private groups:
A Paintball Private Group needs a minimum of 10 players (ages 10+) Private Private Groups receive their own referee to coordinate and assist the party and a discount on rental packages! A $50 deposit is required for booking, which is refundable up 48 hours in advance, no exceptions.
All private groups can choose between High Impact or Low Impact paintball. The only difference is the size of the ammo! (High impact paintballs shoot farther and harder than low impact)
Each player will be provided with all of the paintball rental equipment needed. Amount of paintballs depends on the package chosen! For pricing information visit our pricing page (pricing coming soon).
What Is a Open Play / Walk Ons?
Open play is basically a pickup game that any individual or group of players can join in and out of at any time. There are no reservations required! You can show up by yourself or with a group, just remember that you will be mixing in with the other Open Play / Walk On players (which usually mean big games and BIG fun!)
LVL UP Staff Members will be rotating games on all of our different playing fields throughout the day. In between every game, there will be a chance for players to reload, refill their air tanks, drink water etc. before another game starts.
Open Play / Walk Ons are for traditional paintball only at this time. We currently do not offer Low Impact Open Play, to play Low Impact you just need to make a party reservation.
What Days / Times Can I Book a Private Party?
You can reserve a private group whenever is most convenient to you! For groups of 10 or more, you can reserve LVL UP Sports Paintball any day of the week. All we require is at least 48 hours notice on your reservation so we can work out staffing etc.
Is There Shopping Nearby?
LVL UP Sports is conveniently located just 5 miles from Stringtown Road in Grove City. Drop the kiddos off at the park and you’re just minutes from all your favorite big box stores like Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Michaels, Best Buy, Dicks, dozens of restaurants and more!
Can I Bring My Own Paintballs?
Our paintball park carries premium grade paintballs and rental equipment. We ask for all of our customer’s safety that only our paintballs are used at LVL UP Sports Paintball Park. Players are welcome to bring their own paintball guns, goggles and other playing equipment. Any player caught bringing in paintballs not sold by LVL UP Sports will be ejected immediately without refund and may be subject to a permanent ban from our paintball park.
Do Paintballs Hurt?
Paintballs are designed to be as pain-less as possible! We like to compare it to getting flicked with a rubber band. As long as you have your arms & legs covered with pants and a long sleeve t-shirt, you’ll be fine.
We also have a new “Low-Impact Paintball” option. It’s the same price, the paintballs are just smaller! Great for first timers and young ones. Call us for more details (614) 313-1382.
What Should I Wear?
We recommend wearing long pants, long sleeves, old shoes, and a beanie or hat. The paintball splats will wash out of your clothes, but your knees and elbows will definitely touch the ground, we’d hate for you to get grass stains on your nice jeans!
How Many Paintballs Will I Shoot?
Most players will shoot between 500 – 1,000 paintballs in a 3 hour period.
What Do I Need to Rent Equipment?
All players renting equipment are required to provide a valid drivers license or credit card. Parents can put multiple rentals on one form of ID! Make sure to return your equipment at the end of the day to get your card back!
Do I Need to Fill Out a Waiver?
YES! For our safety and yours, all players are required to fill out a waiver every time they play paintball at LVL UP Sports. You can download, print and fill it out ahead of time right here. Parents (or someone over 18) must sign all minor’s waivers. One person can sign for multiple minors (example: one parent can sign waivers for all the minors at a birthday party)
Is There an Age Minimum
The minimum age to play paintball is 10 years old. We do have options for younger players, for more information just give us a call! (614) 313-1382
I Want to Buy My Own Gear, Do You Have a Store?
We do have a store! And if you’re interested in something we don’t carry in stock, like a special color paintball gun, we’d be happy to special order any product on the market. Just ask or give us a call! (614) 313-1382
