What clothing should I wear?
Dress in layers for the weather conditions then add or remove layers as needed. The goal is to not fog up from overheating. Wear running shoes in warm conditions or boots in winter conditions. Do not let any negative weather keep you from playing. We are open all year around including winter and you can have lots of fun playing in any conditions.
How old do I need to be to play Airsoft?
Anyone 14 years of age and up can rent our airsoft rifles. You may play and use your own airsoft gun if you are 10 years of age and up.
Do airsoft BB’s hurt?
There can be a “bee sting” effect when hit by an airsoft BB. This can greatly vary depending on where you are hit and from how far away it travelled. We suggest 10 years of age and up when using your own equipment and playing with similar aged players. Chest protectors and all safety equipment required are included with your entry fee and all players are given full safety instructions before playing.
Do you have Bus Service?
We recommend Fenton Bus Lines, fentonbuslines.com ,when looking for group transportation to our entertainment venue. Call or text Kathy Fenton at 403-680-9394, email or check out their website for more info or to book busing.
Are you open in the winter or when weather is bad?
Yes we are open regardless of weather, even in rain, sleet or snow, all year around. Our facility has a house like a ski lodge to change and warm up in. Dressed properly, you can play in any weather conditions and have fun. If you are concerned about the weather you can switch to another date or cancel. Always call before canceling. People ski on top of mountains so you can easily play airsoft in the forest and trees as long as you are properly dressed.
What is the difference between the rifle levels?
The higher the level of gun, the better it functions. Features include increased speed & accuracy and a decrease in the chance of gun issues or breakdowns. Level one airsoft rifles are snipers which are single shot. Level 2's are Tippmann M4 carbines which are air powered and can shoot full and semi automatic. We also rent sidearm pistols.
Can I bring my own airsoft gun?
Yes, as long as your gun velocity conforms to our speed standards. We have chronographs available and check all own airsoft gun speeds.

We offer a free unlimited hotdog barbeque and drinking water fountain for all players. We also sell chips, pop and chocolate bars. You are encouraged to make it a tailgate party and bring any additional food or drink you want such as burgers, steaks, pop, chips, cake, etc.
I want to play airsoft but don’t have a group. Can I come out and join another group?
Yes, you may come out and join existing groups that are looking for 'joiners/walk ons'. Always contact us prior to review bookings because some groups prefer private sessions. We also run ~3 paintball and ~3 airsoft events per year. These are typically in the form of "Big Games" and are planned, all day events with games and prizes. These are great days to come out if you are looking to join with other players. For more detailed info see Paintball & Airsoft Events.
How many BB’s do I need?

Level one rentals are single shot action and level two’s and three’s have semi or full automatic mode. If you are purchasing for kids (and even adults) be sure to set your limit and any extras they are on their own or finished.
