Hell Survivors Paintball Playfield was not designed for the weak. Hell Survivors has the world’s largest walk-in, self serve air station. It has been voted the #1 Air Station in the industry.

While paintball here is challenging and fast-paced, safety is also a priority. Paintballs are not made of paint, but instead are soft gelatin capsules that contain vegetable oil and food coloring. These capsules are non-toxic and biodegradable.
