Indoor Paintball Fields Vs Outdoor Paintball Fields

Indoor paintballs fields? The concept sounds unusual and it is with regards to U.S. paintball standards. Paintball is considered a rugged sport to be played on outdoor rugged ground. However, if you have ever traveled abroad and thought you would be playing paintball outside on a field, you thought wrong. Europe is more than likely where you would be playing indoor paintball because European cities donít have the outdoor space to house the huge playing fields that the US does, and following are the distinct differences between the two types of playing fields.

One commonality that both indoor and outdoor fields share is that they charge fees for entry and play. The game of paintball has become a business and so long as the fields are professionally run you can expect an admission fee. Though you may be used to bringing in your own equipment when playing on an outdoor field, many indoor fields will require you to buy their paintballs.

Want to try playing paintball in an indoor field but youíre not traveling to Europe any time soon? Although not as common in the United States, there are indoor fields inside of warehouses in some cities. Beware there are adjustments to be made when trying indoor paintballing for the first time. Remember to trade in your cleats for more appropriate footwear. The flooring for an indoor field is usually AstroTurf and does not require cleats for running like rugged terrain does.

The main difference between indoor and outdoor fields is the cost of running them. Outdoor fields cost much less to run than indoor fields and many of the costly indoor paintball hubs have been shut down. Not to despair, because the successful ones are still operating. There are a couple of ways the indoor successes stay afloat. One is that they have to be far more diverse than other fields just to stay in competition. Not to mention, they are usually running some pretty great specials to bring in new customers and keep their current ones.

If you live in places like Lancaster or Las Vegas, you know that the summers can be miserable! As a result, many people flock to pools or stick with indoor activities. Thatís when having indoor paintball fields can be a summer fun saver. Think of all the frustration youíll save by being out of the smoldering heat. You get shade and air conditioning on top of energetic, strategic fun with your friends and/or family.

It is widely popular to acquaint playing paintball on an open and rugged outdoor field, playing in indoor arenas offers really impressive benefits. For instance, indoor facilities can offer glow in the dark paintballs and other very unique sort of games and perks. The normal Ďoutlawí games played on the open field can be done indoors only if done in protected and professional environments. So, by all means have a load of indoor paintball fun, just be safe and let the pros run the game.

Planning a Paintball Party
