Pesignated Venues Such as Paintball Parks Allow For Playing the Game Safely

The only place to safely fire a paintball gun outdoors is in paintball parks. These parks are designed specifically for paintball players, and incorporate features to keep both players and watchers safe. There are many different variations of the paintball game, and you can find a park designed for each one.

“Elimination” is one of the simplest paintball park games. The goal for two opposing teams is to eliminate the enemy players from competition by marking them with a paintball. The first team to remove all their opponents from the field of play is the winner. Hay bales, bricks, barrels and other obstacles may be placed on the paintball park’s field for cover.

“Capture The Flag” is one of the most popular paintball park games. Two teams with an equal number of members have a national “flag” that they must protect. The goal is to capture the enemy team’s flag and return it to base, before the enemy can do the same. Parks for this type of paintball are often played on a large field. Solid or inflatable obstructions simulate terrain and obstacles, and can also be used for cover. This park-style paintball game may have a time limit, or may continue until there is a winner.

“Woodsball” can consist of either Elimination or Capture the Flag. The difference is that woodsball is played inside a wooded park environment. Players can only see a small part of the park playing area due to trees and brush. Stealth, camouflage, and snipers are effective strategies when playing in a woodsball park. Woodsball should always be played in a park environment, where there is no chance of accidentally firing on non-combatants.

Many history buffs enjoy “Scenario” paintball. In this variation, various historical battles or events are re-enacted using paintballs instead of real guns. Civil War, World War, and even fictional battles can be simulated. Sometimes a paintball park is suitable for this game. A playing field larger than a park might be needed for historical accuracy.

“Tournament” and “Speedball” paintball have become synonymous. Speedball is played on a small field with man-made obstacles. Players can generally see the entire field in a speedball park. The small field makes for speedy and exciting play. Teams often participate in speedball or other variations in tournament park fields.

The paintball variations are limited only by the imagination. It is important that such games be played only in safe and approved areas such as paintball parks.
