Paintball Samford is Brisbane’s ultimate paintball experience. The fun and excitement of playing on these fields is unmatched in Brisbane and we think Australia. It’s an easy statement to claim to be the best and one that we would not make without the confidence to back up our claims. We pride ourselves in offering a venue of the highest standards to our players, for games full of fun and action.
From the facilities to the playing fields and equipment right down to the very paintballs themselves, we offer our players only the best. Don’t be tricked, not all paintball fields are the same. Two pallets nailed to a star picket is not a fort, as some other fields might have you believe. Bring your mates here for a action pack, fun day, and you can rest assured that you’ll all have a great time, and that you won’t be embarrassed about the venue you picked.
At Paintball Samford, the minimum age to play paintball at Paintball Samford is 15 years. Proof of age may be required.
So if you have a sense of adventure, crave adrenalin and are 15 years or older come on out and join in the battle.
When you arrive, be it with a group, club, workmates, or just by yourself, you are split into two teams. Then after being given a participants briefing by the staff, the fun begins. No matter what your fitness, sex or even personality, there is something for everyone to enjoy by playing paintball. The young, bold and fast can run off and attack. While the older, slower and more cunning can set up the defenses. Once you and your team-mates have worked out a plan, you can choose to join the reckless charge or be a patient sniper, it’s pure fun and excitement.
The session comprises of several games that vary in length. They could be as short as 5 minutes to as long as 20 minutes. Remember each game is unique and you’ll never be out of the action for long. Don’t worry, there are rest breaks throughout the session to “relax and tell tall tales of your playing skills”.
Bring along your outdoor style footwear (no smooth soles or heels). Players must have fully enclosed footwear to play. You can play in any old clothes you want, however dark / hard to see colours are best. A towel and some drinking water is always a good idea. Younger players may also need to bring along some ID, as proof of age may be required. Don’t forget to bring along that sense of adventure!
Your pulse will be racing as you anticipate the whistle blast that starts the action, and your heart will be in your mouth as you alternate from one engagement to the next. Your adrenaline will be pumping as you try to out-maneuver the opposition to achieve the objective. Armed with a air powered paintball gun, the only thing in danger of being wounded is your pride. “Hasta la vista baby!”
Not as much as you might think! As the paintballs punch through the air and thump into your cover, your senses will heightened. As the action escalates, the adrenalin will pump, as you try to evade the incoming paintballs. When a paintball hits, the thin shell breaks and the paint splatters on you. As paintballs zip past your ear or explode on the barricade in front, you are faced with many options. Welcome to paintball.
