Paintball by its nature is a dirty sport. You are covering each other with paint, after all! With that in mind, it’s also important to remember that Steeltown Paintball Park is completely outdoors, so there will be dust and mud as well. Keep these things in mind when you’re planning, and you’ll have a great time!
Following these simple rules will keep you safe on the paintball field!
- SAFETY GOGGLES MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES.
Players must wear goggles whenever they enter any designated playing area. At no time will a player be allowed to break the seal of the goggle from the eyes. Only goggles specifically approved for paintball are allowed. Guests must immediately report rental goggle lens cracks to the Referee or Equipment Room staff. Any goggle lens that has a crack is not allowed.
- BARREL COVERS REQUIRED. Players may never remove their barrel cover unless at the target area or when told to do so by a referee. If you lose your barrel cover point your gun at the ground and call for assistance from a member of the staff.

Players may never intentionally fire at another player’s head.
