Choosing the perfect paintball or airsoft birthday venue

Exploring indoor vs outdoor options

When planning a paintball birthday party, one of the first decisions to make is whether to opt for an indoor or outdoor venue. Indoor facilities offer controlled environments, ideal for year-round play, while outdoor fields provide natural terrain and expansive battlegrounds for more immersive experiences.

At Robinhood Paintball, we’re proud to offer 10 acres for airsoft and paintball play on our eight outdoor fields! From The Castle, a relentless thrill of attack and defend gameplay where respawns for attackers intensify the pressure on defenders in a time-limited battle, to Big Woods, a field featuring natural vegetation, concrete blocks, and pallet walls with windows, providing an immersive and dynamic battleground.

Evaluating safety features

Safety is paramount in paintball, especially when hosting a birthday party for younger players. Look for venues that prioritize safety with certified referees, proper safety gear, and adherence to industry standards. Ensure that the venue's safety protocols align with your expectations to guarantee a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants. The minimum age to play at Robinhood Paintball is 10 years old. 

Considering amenities and facilities

Choose a paintball venue that offers amenities and facilities to enhance the party experience. Look for features such as covered staging areas, picnic spots for post-game celebrations, and clean restroom facilities. Additional offerings like party rooms or catering services can elevate the event and cater to your specific needs.

Food Ideas for Your Paintball Birthday Party

Portable and easy-to-eat snacks

Opt for portable snacks that are easy to eat between games. Consider options like granola bars, fruit slices, and trail mix for quick energy boosts without interrupting the action on the field. You will be moving around alot, so nothing too heavy. 

Energizing drinks

Keep players hydrated and energized with a selection of refreshing drinks. Water, sports drinks, and fruit juices are excellent choices to replenish fluids and keep everyone hydrated during intense gameplay.

Our favorite local spots for post-game meals

After the paintball excitement, treat your guests to a delicious post-game meal at one of our favorite local spots. Most people order from Papa Johns, but there are a number of nearby places to enjoy.

Gear Up: Essential Equipment for a Successful Paintball Event

Ensure a successful paintball event by gearing up with essential equipment. From protective gear to high-quality paintball markers, having the right equipment is crucial for a fun and safe experience on the field.

At Robinhood, rentals include a gun, mask, and all day air. We suggest that you wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty. The paint is washable, but you are playing outside. Also, dress in layers, that way you have extra protection if you want it. The baggier the clothing the better, because the paintballs and airsoft BB’s will get caught in the fabric. And finally, a baseball hat and gloves are suggested.

Inviting guests

Designing creative invitations in Canva

Customize templates with colorful graphics and playful fonts to reflect the theme and thrill of the event. Include essential details like date, time, venue, and RSVP instructions to ensure a smooth planning process.

Providing clear event details and directions

Communicate clear event details and directions to your guests to ensure everyone arrives on time and prepared for the paintball adventure. Include information about parking, check-in procedures, and any special instructions or requirements for the day. Clear communication minimizes confusion and maximizes the enjoyment of the party for all attendees.
