Playing Paintball in Indy with Kids


Paintball can be a fun and different activity to do with your children, young and old! Be sure you’re prepared for the excitement by dressing appropriately, and following safety rules. Protective eye equipment is required at all of these locations, and long sleeves/pants are often recommended to ease the sting of being hit by a paintball. Many of these facilities are flexible with their hours so always be sure to call in advance to make the most of your trip!

Indy Acres Paintball (7225 E. Raymond Street, Indianapolis)

Since this attraction offers fields and woods, it’s recommended that you be covered to avoid normal outdoor exposures such as insect bites and poison ivy. Indy Acres Paintball offers bunkers, a 2 bedroom style house, and a field for night play.

Packages begin at $22.90 for gun, 25 paintballs, a mask, and all-day CO2
