Splatmaster Frequently Asked Questions
What is Splatmaster?
Splatmaster is low impact paintball where kids ages 6 and older can have a blast running around, shooting their friends, and marking targets with tiny balls of bio-degradable, water-soluble paint. Players use, spring-powered, light-weight paintball guns to cock and shoot in a variety of fun and exciting game types.
What’s the difference between Splatmaster and Paintball?
It is kid-friendly paintball. Younger players, age 6-12, will play a variety of different paintball scenario games, but with guns that shoot about half as fast as regular paintball guns and ammo that is about two-thirds the size of regular paintballs. In addition to playing paintball games, kids will have short safety and gun technique briefings throughout the party. If Paintball was high-speed go-carting, Splatmaster would be bumper cars.
What do you need to play?
All you have to do is show up! We have rental gear, splat ammo, safety equipment, and everything else you’ll need to have a great time. Contact us for more information!

Is there an additional charge for siblings, parents, and/or caregivers?
There is no additional charge for anyone who is not playing. If the total number of kids exceeds 8 kids, there is a per-head charge for additional players. See our Splatmaster page for upgrade options.
What time should my guests and I arrive at the party?
We ask that you and your guests arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled party time to allow time for check in.
Do I need to stay at the party?
We ask that at least one adult 18 or older stay with the party group during your party’s designated party time. Other adults are welcome to stay and watch the fun!
Does each player, including adults, have to have a completed/signed waiver?
Yes. For insurance purposes, all players are required to have a completed/signed waiver. A parent and/or guardian must sign for players under 18 years old. If you would like to have parents sign the waiver for you to bring with you to the party, waivers are available at our facility or online here.
Is Splatmaster safe?
Absolutely! Our top priority is the safety of all our guests and to make sure everyone has a great experience. Our staff explains the rules to the kids and how play safely. We supply safety masks and have referees that constantly monitoring the players to make sure they are playing safely. Check out more info at the product website https://jtsplatmaster.com/parents-zone.
Does Splatmaster hurt?
The ammo used is designed to be as painless as possible. The impact will cause a sting, such as the flick of a rubber band, but for the most part it is completely harmless. You can help keep your kids from getting hurt by dressing them in long sleeves/hoodies, jeans or sweatpants, tennis shoes, and gloves.
What type of safety instructions are provided?
We love to help people have safe, quality fun! During the activities rotation, kids will be briefed on safety, gun etiquette, and techniques for a couple minutes of every fifteen minute rotation.
Does The Paintball Park Aurora provide supervision?
Yes! We have referees facilitate games, teach kids about target practice and conduct safety briefings. Kids will be supervised the whole time.
What is the feet per second (FPS) for JT Splatmaster guns?
They are spring loaded and fire at a velocity of 150 FPS, which is about half the speed of a standard paintball gun. At this rate, you can see your ammo fly through the air before you get the satisfaction of seeing your splat! JT Splatmaster guns are spring-loaded and shoot more gently than regular paintball guns.
Can a guest play while wearing a cast?
Unfortunately for the safety of the kids running around and shooting, we cannot allow casts on the playing fields. However, we welcome the guest to come along and watch and participate in the rest of the birthday festivities.
Can I spend more than the designated play time?
We’re sorry, we cannot stretch play time in the arena, but we do have upgraded time packages available, if you would like to schedule a longer party. See our Splatmaster page for party length upgrades.
Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party area?
Yes. To preserve the integrity of our party area, we do not permit confetti, piñatas, streamers, silly string or strongly adhesive tapes (i.e. duct tape, masking tape) to be used.
How does Splatmaster compare price-wise to paintball?
It is less expensive than paintball and geared toward younger players, age 6-12.
Are gratuities (tips) appropriate?
Gratuities for our staff are welcome, but not required.
Can I bring food and drinks to my party?
Absolutely! You may bring food, drinks and cake or cupcakes (no ice cream or ice cream cake, please) to your party. We can also supply large Blackjack pizza for $7 each. You will also need to bring plates, cups, candles, a lighter, napkins, and cutlery.

What should the kids wear to the party?
We recommend kids wear long sleeves/hoodies, long pants and tennis shoes. Layering is always best, in case it is hot. Our splat ammo is washable, but we recommend that kids not wear their favorite clothes to play Splatmster, as kids may get a little bit dirty.
