FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Airsoft?


Airsoft is a sport where players engage in simulated gun combat, (not too dissimilar to paintball), with guns that fire 6mm plastic bbs. Where airsoft differs from paintball is that airsoft is much more focused towards military simulation. The players will also, for the most part, be more dedicated to dressing in more realistic military gear, including vests and sometimes helmets, in order to look more “realistic”. The games are team based with teammates working together to eliminate the other team or complete objectives.

How does it work when I arrive?


When you first come in you will head over to the check-in counter to fill out a waiver (previous waivers are good for one year) and sign in to the field. Once checked in, you will proceed inside the building to purchase a rental package if you are already not self-equipped. The staff will guide you to the staging area where the referees will proceed to get games started. Games run for approximately 10-15 minutes, with a 5 minute break in between.

How are the games run?


Games run for approximately 10-15 minutes, with a 5 minute break in between. The games are run by referees, who explain the game modes, organize teams, and watch over the players. There are always 1-2 referees at the time, to ensure everything runs smoothly. We have a wide variety of game modes which referees will cycle through.

Do I need a reservation to play?


No reservations required. Walkins are always welcome. Airsoft is available for public play every Sunday of the week.

How do I dress?


The most important piece of gear is eye and face protection. We recommend long pants, sneakers or boots, and long sleeved shirts. For extra protection we also recommend hoodies to protect the back of your head and gloves for your hands. Hats or helmets are also a good idea. We also offer a Pro-Shop with various protective airsoft gear.

What do I need to bring with me?


If this is your first time playing, you will need to fill out a waiver on arrival. We always have them available on site. If you have your own gear, we require full-seal full face protection and an airsoft gun that shoots under 400FPS with .20 gram BBs. Barrel socks (available in-store) are also required and a case (or suitcase or bag of some sort) to bring the gun in. We suggest you dress appropriately for airsoft. For questions on how to dress, refer to the previous question.

Is it safe?


Safety is our #1 priority at Pinnacle Airsoft. 1-2 referees will always be present on the field to ensure the safety of the players. Full-seal face protection is always a requirement to avoid any serious injuries.

Does it hurt?


It will sting a fair amount on bare skin and feel even worse on a finger, or an ear in the cold. However, there are plenty of opportunities to reduce the pain experienced. For this reason, we recommend that you dress appropriately.

How do you know if you’re hit?


One of the best things about airsoft is that it’s a sport based on honesty. When you’re shot by another player, there’s no mark from paint, so it’s down to the player and their honesty to call themselves out. This creates an honor system amongst players. Also, BB's fire at a high enough velocity that you will feel a firm hit on your gear to recognize that you are hit.

Can I come alone? If so, how do I join a team?


You can come alone or in a group. The referees will divide everyone who is playing into two equal teams based on numbers and skill level. When possible, referees will keep groups that come together on the same team.

What is the age requirement to play airsoft?


The age limit to play at our park is 10 and up.

Can I get dropped off by my parents if I bring in a signed waiver, or do my parents have to stay?


As long as your waiver is complete or already in the system, your parents can drop you off and leave.

Is there food available on site?


Food trucks are available every weekend. Refer to our info menu to see the food truck schedules. There is also places nearby that offer food delivery.

Do you have a gun tech?


Yes, we have a gun tech available for repairs and upgrades on personal airsoft guns. Call during business hours for inquiries.
