Below you will find a listing of the most Frequently Asked Questions here at WHIL’S PAINTBALL. They provide basic information that most first time visitors will need when visiting our facility.
What is the minimum age to play?
The minimum age for regular paintball games at WHIL’S is 10 years old. We also offer special SPLAT Kidz options for ages 6 to 9 as you can see in the above video.
What type of clothes should we wear?
You are allowed to wear whatever clothing you feel comfortable playing in based on the weather conditions. It’s our recommendation that you wear long pants to help protect your legs from low lying brush as well as bug bites in the tall grass, but you are allowed to wear shorts if you like. Before you ask, yes the paint does wash out of the clothing but we don’t suggest wearing anything you want to keep from getting dirty.
The only restriction we have is that all players must be wearing a closed toe shoe of some sort. Due to safety reasons sandals, flip-flop, or crocks are not allowed on the playing fields.
What are Public Walk-On Sessions?
Public Walk-On Sessions are game sessions that are designed to accommodate any number of players. When you arrive for a Public Walk-On session you and your friends will be mixed into a larger group of similarly skilled players which you will play with throughout the day. This means that beginners will only be playing against other beginners.
A Public Walk-On Session is comparable to attending an amusement park where you ride the attractions with other guests. Staff Instructors are assigned to the group who act as supervisors and referees for the games and will be with your group all day long. Public Walk-On Sessions last all day long and you may come or go as you please.
How much do extra paintballs cost?
We currently offer paintballs in the following quantities: 500 extra paintballs = $15.00
*The average player will shoot approximately 500 paintballs in a day.
Can we bring our own paintballs?
All paint used at WHIL’S PAINTBALL must be purchased through us. WHIL’S PAINTBALL uses a special formulation of paint that is created to meet our specifications and the environmental limitations set forth by the county we are in. In order to ensure that only the proper bio-degradable paintballs are used on our property you cannot bring your own paintballs.
Will we be playing by ourselves?
If you are playing in one of Public Walk-On Sessions you and your friends will be mixed into a larger group session with other public players. You will be allowed to stay together on the same team as your friends, unless of course you prefer to be on opposite sides. The choice is yours.
If you are playing in a Private Group Reservation then you will only be playing against the other members of your group and will never be against strangers.
What do we wear? Is the paint washable?
Clothes you do not mind getting dirty. Paint is 100% washable. Looser clothing so you can move, run, and jump. Long sleeve and pants. No open toe shoes. Please refrain from wearing neon colors (orange, pink, lime etc…), neon colors are what our staff wears. Dress for the weather and to get dirty.
