Indy Acres Paintball Birthday Parties

With Indy Acres Paintball birthday parties, you give guests of all ages a fun way to celebrate getting older. And, when you book your birthday party with us, each player gets everything they need to play paintball. All our packages come with the paintball gun, ammo, all-day air and a protective face mask. Kids 8 and 9 years old can play paintball with an adult within arm’s reach while on the field, and 10 and older can experience a paintball birthday party on their own.

Not Just for Kids

Paintball birthday parties are great for adults too. Are you planning a party with a mix of kids and adults? They can all have a great time playing together and experiencing the thrill of objective-based games that keep everyone engaged and having fun. 

Girls Love Paintball Parties Too

Girls love to get out and play too, and our paintball birthday parties make that happen. If you’re looking for birthday party ideas that will keep them talking about it for weeks, just book your girl’s paintball birthday party and let them enjoy the fun too! 

Open Play or Private Party?

If you want to play with just your group and you have 10 or more players, a Private Party is for you. If you have less than 10 players or just want to save some money Open Play is for you!  

Private Paintball Birthday Parties

We offer private parties for birthdays! With a private paintball party, your group has its own ref and private use of the field during play, so you only play against yourselves. Simply book your reservation for 10 or more players and choose the package you want.

Open Play Paintball Parties

If you don’t quite have 10 people that you want to bring, book your reservation for open play. Even though you won’t play with just your group, you can choose the game you want to play from what is posted – and if you want to make sure younger players aren’t mixed with older ones, just go to the line that has other younger players. You’ll still get a picnic table for your party and all the fun that a paintball birthday party offers! 

Make It Your Own Paintball Birthday Party

When you book your paintball birthday party, you’ll also be reserving a picnic table (or two!) for your group. Bring cake, drinks, decorations, tablecloths and anything else you want to make the day special. There are also pizza places nearby that will deliver if you don’t want to worry about food until the day of the party. 

Birthday Party FAQs

What is a Paintball Birthday Party? 

First, paintball birthdays are all about having fun! All your guests receive everything they need to play paintball, including the gun, mask and all-day air – the number of paintballs included depends on which package you purchase. Your group gets to enjoy playing paintball on several different fields, and whenever you’re ready for cake and refreshments, just let the ref know and your group can enjoy the party portion of the day.  

What’s the Difference Between a Private Party and an Open Play Birthday Party? 

Private parties require 10 or more players and make sure your party is completely yours. Your group has its own ref and is the only group that plays on the field during games. Private party guests can also choose which games they play throughout the day.  

Open play parties have all the same benefits, except your group plays with whoever else is playing that day. This can be a great choice for smaller groups since more players always equals more fun!  

What Can We Bring? 

You can bring cake, drinks, coolers, balloons, table covers and anything else you want. Your reservation gets you 1 picnic table (or more depending on the number of guests). There are also pizza places nearby that deliver if you want to serve fresh, hot food for the celebration.  

Are Paintball Birthday Parties Right for All Ages? 

Our paintball birthday parties are perfect for both kids and adults. However, kids must be 8 years old or older to play on our fields. Kids that are 8 and 9 years old must have an adult within arms reach of them at all times when on the field. If you have a mixed group of ages ranging from kids to teens and adults, you can be sure all of them will love the competitive, objective-based games that we play!  

What Should We Wear? 

Our paintball fields are all .50-caliber, which has 60% less impact than traditional .68-caliber fields. Younger players might want to wear a hoodie or long sleeves, while most adults are fine without additional layers. Generally, dress for the weather, not the paintball! If you’re unsure how your child will react, wear layers so he or she can take one off if they get too hot while playing. We also recommend wearing clothes you don’t mind getting dirty – you’ll be playing in grass, dirt and even in the woods. 

Does It Hurt? 

Paintball does sting a little, but it isn’t that bad! If you’ve ever been flicked with a towel or a rubber band, it’s kinda like that. We use low-impact .50-caliber paintballs, which provide 60% less impact than the traditional size. We have surrender rules in place so players aren’t shot at close range during paintball birthday parties, but it’s up to the kids to make sure they follow them. We also have padded shirts available for rent if you’re concerned about the pain for your child (or an adult!). 

Does the Paint Stain? 

No, the paint doesn’t stain most clothing. However, it might leave oil marks on dry-clean only garments. It also wouldn’t be a good idea to wear white – everyone knows that color stains the easiest! 

Is There Anywhere for People That Don’t Want to Play? 

Yes, we have plenty of seating in our staging area. This gives a nice view of at least one entire field and parts of other ones. If party-goers want to watch on the field without playing, we can do that too – this is a great way to get memorable photos of the guests! If you want to be an on-field spectator, just let us know at check-in.
