“Should we play paintball outdoors or indoors?” That’s a question we sometimes get asked. Obviously, the time of year can have a big impact. The outdoor paintball season in Minnesota typically runs from April through October.
Outdoor paintball has something indoor paintball simply can’t offer–large play areas. A larger play area gives players the ability to maneuver around their opponents. If you’re good, or maybe just lucky, you can work around your opponent and catch them off-guard. There is no sweeter victory than circling around your opponent and taking them out from behind. If you’re really good, you can get close enough to offer a chance to surrender and watch them jump out of their skin.
Another advantage of outdoor paintball is that you’ll have a variety of fields to play paintball. No two fields play the same, so every game is a new challenge. You’ll find yourself spending more time at an outdoor field. Most groups spend about 3-4 hours when playing paintball outdoors.
Our paintball facility in Jordan, MN has grills available for use, so consider bringing along something to eat and make a day of it. Hot dogs and burgers are always a crowd pleaser. Bratwursts are our personal favorite. There’s nothing better than spending a warm summer day outside.
Of course the weather can sometimes present a challenge and we all know the weather in Minnesota can be a bit unpredictable. That’s why we have a covered area that groups can find shelter under, should a spring shower pop up. Fortunately it’s rare that an entire day is a rain out. We play rain or shine, stopping only when severe weather is in the area. When that happens, we’ll take a break and let the weather pass. It’s never long before we’re able to resume playing paintball.
