Had a very good experience here. Our family of 4 had fun over 5 hours. Paintball can be painful, and not sure if it will be something that we will be doing all the time. But the staff (mostly college age young men and women),...More

I'm not a native to the area so I can't vouch for the comparative quality relative to other places in the Bay Area. Compared to other paintball places I have been to it's pretty average. They have 5 different arenas but all are pretty small...More

My son celebrated his 11th birthday with a Splatmaster party. Santa Clara Paintball offers paintball parties as well as Splatmaster parties but we chose Splatmaster because the Splastmaster guns shoot paintballs at half the speed of the Paintball guns. I had read reports of kids...More

Just go there with your friends, we enjoy this activity so much, it is very realistic and exciting. You should book if you are going with a large group and take your guns with you, the ones they have are a bit old.

So much fun but I recommend bringing your own gloves and wear layers of clothing to prevent the welts the paintballs leave on your body. Great place for the young and old, adventure seekers, or anyone else with a little energy.
