Our playing fields are located at the eastern end of Boundary Road. Head towards the Mackay Airport. Go directly past the Mackay airport entrance for about 500m. The bitumen road turns to dirt and you will see the Adrenalin Paintball sign. The road veers to the right. You will come to a gate that is normally closed. Open the gate and follow the signs for about 2km to get to our playing fields. You will see the big Adrenalin Paintball sign on the left hand side and our Marshaling Area.

There are 3 basic packages:
- Shoot and Run – $50 – All equipment and 200 paintballs
- Weekend Warrior – $110 – All equipment and 700 paintballs
- Get Peppered – $190 – All equipment and 1300 paintballs
The most popular and best value-for-money package by far is our Weekend Warrior Pack which costs $110 per player and includes 700 paintballs. We find that nearly every player who buys the $50 introductory package with 200 paintballs inevitably run out and wants to buy more paint and are pretty disappointed if they did not budget for this. If you are on a tight budget you might want to just buy another 100 or 200 balls or try and play conservatively. I thought I should flag this so that your players can plan their spend and not be disappointed.
A full description of each package can be found at http://adrenalinpaintball.com/paintball-prices.
If you organised the game get you get rewarded with free paintballs on a sliding scale depending on the number of players that you get.
A full description of the organizers bonus can also can be found at http://adrenalinpaintball.com/paintball-prices.
If you are someone else in the group is having a birthday or some other special occasion they get 200 paintballs free, valued at $38. Note, we only give this bonus to 1 person per group. If there is more than 1 person celebrating a special occasion in your group than the paintball bonuses are spit between them.
Public Session Times
Sessions are normally on weekends at 9am and 2pm on both Saturday and Sundays. A session normally goes for about 3 hours. Please note, we only hold sessions when we have bookings. So it is essential that you book and do not just show up at the fields.
IF YOU’VE BEEN INVITED TO A GAME MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE TIME WITH YOUR ORIGANIZER. HE OR SHE MAY HAVE ARRANGED TO START A GAME AT AN ALTERNATIVE TIME.
You can also have a private booking. Here, your group will play their own games on separate fields and have their own dedicated senior referee. Please note that for a private booking there is a $150 surcharge to cover the costs of an additional senior applies and a minimum of 10 players is required.
Normally a session goes for 3 hours from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Over this period we normally play 4-5 games.
When to Arrive
Plan to arrive 15 minutes before the start of your session. Note it takes about 5 minutes to drive from the front gate on Boundary Road to our playing fields.

What if it’s Raining
If it is light drizzle it is fine to play paintball. If however there are heavy showers, we may need to postpone or cancel the game. The referee will normally inform the organizer 1 hour before the game is scheduled to commence if there is a need to cancel or postpone the booking.

I would appreciate if you could email or text me once you have done this.
How some social clubs work that I have had down in the past is that they pay a certain amount and then if the players want to spend more or upgrade to a higher pack they pay for this themselves.
If you are considering paying for kids in the birthday group what parents often do is pay for the introductory package ($50 and 200 paintballs) and let them know if they want to buy more paint or upgrade then that is there expense.
