High Impact - Paintball and Airsoft

Paintball – High Impact Games: Full contact paintball awaits you at Pyrrhic. Most “hits” do not hurt that much and the pain goes away in approx. 30 seconds.

We speed check our paintballs at 270 feet per second. Walk-on public play or reservations for private matches.

Airsoft – High Impact Games: Airsoft play is for ages 10+ and is available on all open days. Field BB’s ONLY, no outside BB’s. Come join in on some super fun Airsoft at our Tactical Sports Center.

Join other Airsoft players – come battle it out on one of our tactical fields.
