A: Our minimum age for paintball is 6 years old, though any parents of young children should make sure they can handle the equipment (roughly 6 lbs fully loaded), but parents need to make sure kids are mature enough to follow all safety guidelines at all times. Our standard issue equipment uses .50 Caliber “Low-Impact” paintballs (as mentioned above) and we find that pain isn’t a problem for the young ones, especially when they have a parent or sibling out playing with them. Don’t Forget, all our guests, regardless of age, must have a signed Waiver on file. Additionally, our facility offers other activities like a Shooting Gallery, Climbing Wall, and NERF Wars to occupy guests of all ages!
We run games rain or shine, hot or cold, day or night all year long! That said, we understand that not everyone likes to get wet, wild, and dirty, and we want to fulfill your highest expectations for your event. If you have a reservation booked and you see that inclement weather may hinder your experience, we invite you to reschedule any time up to 48 hours before your event without penalty!
A: Perfect, CAPP is the best place to start! The basic game format is two teams, total elimination. This means the ref splits you into 2 even teams which start on opposite sides of the playing field. Once the ref starts the game your objective is to shoot each player on the opposite team out- once shot= elimination from that game. Once shot, players will exit the playing field until the next game (this is the ideal time to grab a drink or refill on ammo and air). There are also many other game formats we can run- after a few games, once you’re comfortable with the rules, feel free to ask your ref about those other options!
A: Our paint is water based and will wash out first run in the wash, no matter what you wear, guaranteed. We generally recommend dressing more for the weather than the game. Remember, paintball can be very physical and long sleeves and jeans aren’t the best idea on a hot, humid Alabama day.
A: The standard issue at CAPP is .50 Caliber “Low-Impact” ammo. These rounds are about 2/3 the size and weight of a standard paintball (.68 Caliber). Because of this, even though they travel at the same speed, the impact is much less painful. .50 Caliber ammo maintains the same range (roughly 200 feet) and accuracy as a standard paintball, but due to the lesser pain it is obviously much more friendly for any player.
A: More safe than the car ride out! There are less than a dozen paintball related injuries a year world wide (on average)- as long as common sense is exercised all shooters, targets, and spectators are perfectly safe! Participants will be given a safety briefing upon arrival and are under referee supervision at all times. Our fields are set up perfectly for spectators with bleachers and benches in the main alley and see-through netting on all sides of the fields.
A: When you come without a Private Group, either as a solo player or with other players, you will be included in the Open Play group, which is comprised of all Walk-In players. If you wish to only play with your group, we offer private group play with 48 hours notice. Teams are divided based on skill level and advanced players in the open play group are treated appropriately when choosing teams.
A: It depends- but we ALWAYS recommend it! We REQUIRE a reservation 48 hours in advance on any private party, and strongly recommend one for all others- This can be made online any time. Any sized group is welcome to walk in for open play during regular business hours, though without reservations you will be checked in on a “First Come, First Served” basis. We recommend that any guests book a reservation as soon as they decide they are coming. Our booking system allows reservations based on available equipment, so reserving ahead of time guarantees that you will be able to play without a wait.
A: No- CAPP is a .50 caliber exclusive facility, so all equipment is provided for you!
A: Private party packages include full use of of our indoor party room for one hour after your playing time is over (extra time can be added, based on availability- call for details) and full use of our grills if you would like to cook. Additionally, there are picnic tables throughout the facility outside that customers are welcome to utilize- call us if you’d like to arrange a tent to cover your table!
A: Many local businesses gladly cater to our facility, including Pizza Hut in Calera! We are happy to arrange for you as well if you have specific requests. Call ahead regarding any needs or questions for concessions.
