Anyone having 10 or more players can call Orbital Paintball to check availability to place a reservation for a Private Group. A Private Group will ensure that everyone in the group will have rental equipment, if needed, and a referee assigned to their group. The referee will make sure the group is aware of the Safety Rules, show them how to use the equipment, and take the group to the different fields to play on so they get a change of pace all day long.

Private Groups get the Group Discount ($25 per player): Includes the following per person….. Rental Paintball Marker, Rental Paintball Mask, Rental Paintball Air Tank, All Day Air refills, All Field Fees, Bag of 500 Paintballs and All Day Play. Kids and ladies can request for a Chest Protector as well, but are first come, first serve!

MAKE A RESERVATION by calling Orbital Paintball at 813-ORBITAL (672-4825) to check availability for a reservation on the date you are requesting. No deposit is needed. They will take your First and Last Name, Cell Phone#, how many in your group, Date and Start Time of your Party, and what your party is for (ie. Birthday Party, Bachelor/Bachelorette Party, Team Building Event, Friends and/or Family Get-Together, etc…) If there are no openings for a reservation, ask them about placing your name on the Waiting List just in case a Private Group cancels. See Waiting List

Here at Orbital Paintball, if there are no openings for a Private Group reservation, a group of 10 or more can still call 813-ORBITAL (672-4825) and get placed on the Waiting List just in case a Private Group cancels, or just to get the Group Discount.

Groups MUST still check in with 10 or more players to get the Group Discount even though they are playing on the Walk-On Group.

All fields usually have a Walk-On Group, which consists of everyone who does NOT have a reservation for a Private Group! Anyone can come out to play on a Walk-On Group that is 10 years of age of older. You can come by yourself, or with friends and\or family.

Paintballs are round gelatin capsules containing mostly polyethylene glycol (PEG), corn starch, oil, as well as other non-toxic and water-soluble substances, and dye for color. Paintballs are made of materials found in food items, so are non-toxic to human consumption, but taste bad.

Orbital Paintball has a Speedball Field, Hyperball Field, Woodball Fields and a Field to Fort (Fort Freedom) Field. Each one of the fields play differently. See our FIELDS TAB to check them out at http://www.orbitalpaintball.com

We take Credit Cards, Debit Cards and, of course, Cash! We do not take Checks to keep our pricing down for our customers!

No, Safety Waiver for ALL FIELDS, per the insurance companies, MUST be filled out only once every calendar year. So they are good from January 1st through December 31st.

10.5 Balls Per Second.

280 Feet Per Second

BPS means Balls Per Second. This term is used to measure the amount of paintballs projected from your marker per second.

FPS means Feet Per Second. This is the measurement used for the speed of the paintballs projected from your marker!

Players should wear old comfortable clothing (ex: military pants, sweat pants, long pants and shirts, overalls, denim, etc,) and may also want to bring a change of clothes for the conclusion of the game day. Here in Florida, because of the heat, normally most players wear long pants, a T-shirt and tennis shoes, but during the winter sometimes it can get cool or cold, and you may want to add more clothing. We still recommend a T-shirt underneath though, because Florida weather can still get warmer as the day goes on, even during the winter. The most suitable footwear would be a light boot, but old running shoes are most commonly worn.

Cleats and open toed shoes are NOT ALLOWED.

Sometimes, it depends on several factors. Most of the time you will feel them when they hit you, but because most of the time players are a distance away, it does not hurt much, and sometimes, depending on what you are wearing, the referee will let you know you were hit because you didn’t feel it at all. The closer they are to you, the more you will feel it, and sometimes they can leave a bruise. Players 10 and up are allowed to play, and they do, so should give you an idea if they can take the hit, then you probably can as well. Most of the time, because your adrenaline is going, along with your heart rate, from paintballs flying all around you, once you do get hit, you feel it, then cannot believe you are now out of that game. Goes that quick through your mind, so don’t worry too much about it and go have FUN!
