Paintball Jungle Kids options

We know how keen kids are to come and play paintball and we totally understand why because its so much fun however we feel its important to offer paintball options geared to a guests age and ability and to give parents options to ensure there kids are not mixed in with adults unless that’s what they are happy to do.

At The Paintball Jungle in Sherwood Forest we have 3 different paintball options.

  1. GOTCHA Paintball for 8 years plus
  2. CADET Paintball for 11 – 16 year olds only
  3. Traditional Paintball for players aged 11 years (must have left year 6 at school) upwards

This page is all about GOTCHA and CADET paintball so please scroll down the page to read all about these options to make sure you find the paintball event that best fits your requirements.

If you have a group of experienced young paintballers (aged 11 years plus) or have a group of adults and kids then please take a look at the other paintball pages on this website for more information about the Traditional Paintball options we can offer you.

This event is specifically for younger guests but as we know this will be mainly for birthday parties we will be allowing parents / guardians or an older sibling to play alongside the birthday guest but we guarantee to never mix a group of adults into a “Gotcha” sessions keeping this all about a fun family and friends paintball experience.

Loads More Info If You Have The Time

If you are 11 -16 years* old or a parent and are looking to arrange a paintball event / party for a birthday, school trip or end of season event for your sports club / team, the Paintball Jungle Cadet Event is ideal.

The Paintball Jungle is very keen to promote a fair and level playing field for every level of paintballer which is why in our opinion the Cadet Paintball event is ideal for junior paintballers that are 11 -16 year olds*.

Each junior will be kitted out in all safety equipment and protective clothing including body armour so they are fully protected along with state of the art paintball markers along with fully trained event staff and 150 acres of Sherwood Forest for them to run around in screaming and shouting as much as they like.

The event cost of £25 per player is fully inclusive so ideal if you need a party to stick to a budget. We provide everything they will need including 400 paintball all for the £25 entry fee.

As we know kids can often go trigger happy when playing paintball so we won’t be giving these budding Rambo’s all 400 paintball at the beginning of the event like some venues do often meaning after game 1 the kids have ran out of paintballs meaning your wallet or purse gets hit because you have to buy more ammo.

We will issue each player with paintballs at intervals across the event so the worst that can happen is that if they go mad in game 1 and shoot all there allotted paintballs they may have to sit out a game but trust us when we issue the next lot of paintballs they will have learnt a valuable lesson so it’s very rare they do it again.

We find this approach works for all groups as no one player has an advantage over another. They all have the same kit and number of paintballs regardless of how much pocket money they may get and we guarantee to never allow cadet paintballers to purchase any additional paintballs so it’s fair for all thereby delivering a fair & thoroughly enjoyable day.

It’s all about team work and the great outdoors, no Nintendos, PSP’s or X Box allowed!
