Any of the commercial venues in New Jersey provide amenities such as bathrooms, picnic areas, lockers, equipment rentals, air refills and food service. Paintball does have some sports guidelines which may vary from venue to venue. Always be sure you know the rules of engagement before you play.
The rules are on specific safety and insurance standards, and paid staff (including referees) sometimes must ensure players are instructed in proper play to ensure participants' safety. Some fields are "BYOP" (Bring Your Own Paint), allowing players to buy paint at unrelated retail stores or online and use it at their field. However, most fields are FPO (Field Paint Only,) meaning players must buy paint at the venue or at a pro shop affiliated with the park. Reasons relating to player safety are generally cited for the use of on site paint.and have merit as poor quality or poorly-stored paint can cause gun failures or personal injury to targeted individuals.
In paintball, players compete, in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by hitting them with capsules containing food coloring and gelatin (referred to as paintballs) propelled from a device called a paintball marker. Paintballs have a non-toxic, biodegradable, water soluble mineral-oil in them. Paintball technology is sometimes used by armies to supplement military training, riot response, and non-lethal suppression of dangerous suspects.
Games are played on indoor or outdoor fields of varying sizes. A game field is scattered with natural or artificial terrain, which players then use for strategic play. Rules for playing paintball vary, but can include capture the flag, elimination, defending or attacking a particular point or area, or capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area. Depending on the variant played, games can last from seconds to hours, or even days in scenario play. New Jersey offers paintball options from the most complex, rugged terrain which requires camoflauge gear, to simple outdoor fields with scattered obstacles and objects.
