We had yet another amazing experience at BMAZ! We had a group ranging in age from 8-75 and everyone had a stellar time! We did a 45min session with unlimited ammo (definitely the way to go if you have a score to settle with your family ūüėÜ) and we were thoroughly exhausted!

Had our 13 year olds birthday party here and it was an absolute blast! Great space and the kids did Gellyball and VR. Great value and tons of fun!

This place is awesome! We have had so much fun playing the Gelly ball. It’s like paintball or air soft, but it doesn’t hurt so young kids or older people can play. My mom and dad both played and it was an awesome experience.

GellyBall Gel Battle FAQ’s

How is GellyBall Played?

Depending on the type of event, age group and number of players, we run a variety of games which may include team battles, capture the flag, traitor town, one-on-one or two-on-two championships and more. Your BMAZ Host will organize and run the games during your party.

We typically play in teams of up to 5, So with more people, we will have more teams and quickly rotate between games so everyone gets lots of play time.

Our general rules of conduct are posted in the arena and we expect respect for other players, as well as our staff, equipment and facility.

There should be no physical contact between players or equipment. Our arena, bunkers and decore are not designed to be climbed upon or moved.

What equipment is required?

We provide all the necessary equipment as part of your party fee.

Our equipment includes: our battery-powered automatic  gel-blasting pistol, full-face protective mask and ammo.

You do not need to own or bring any special equipment.

Group Play and Party Packages include UP TO 10 masks and blasters. Additional masks may be available to use for a small fee. Guests are provided with sanitizing wipes if they wish to clean the masks between players in their group!
We maintain 2 sets of masks in order to accomodate back-to-back groups. 
Please do not take masks off our wall as they may be needed for the next group. Our staff will provide you with up to 10 masks.

How Many Players can Play GellyBall?

Private events include up to 10 players at a time. You can actually have up to 25 total people in your group. We play up to 10 at a time in the arena. If you have more than 10 players in your group, we will simply create teams and rotate every couple of games so everyone gets to play. 

Each party has a set amount of play time included. If you need more play time, you can upgrade or if you need more party time, you can upgrade. 

If you have many players, we recommend  unlimited ammo add-on.

Do you sell GellyBall Equipment?

Yes. We are an official, authorized dealer for Gellyball brand equipment. We carry a limited supply of equipment for retail sale.

Do you clean the equipment?

Yes! Between groups, we clean and disinfect our masks and the party room tables. We make disinfectant wipes available for guests to clean masks between players if they wish.

What should I wear?

We recommend bringing an extra layer (such as a light jacket or hoodie) until you know how the impact will feel. Bring or wear something with long sleeves and long pants until you can decide whether to shed a layer.

We also recommend wearing older clothes that can get dirty or stained just in case.

Our Glowing tracer ammo can leave a colored residue on clothes and skin. In our experience this washes out, however, we always recommend wearing clothing that can get dirty and possibly even stained.

What ages can play GellyBall?

Every player is different. We allow players as young as 5 because the equipment is easy to use.

When booking your event or considering walking-in, keep in mind that younger players will have a hard time participating with older players and may face higher risk of injury when playing with older or larger players. 

Does it hurt to get shot?

Each person’s sensitivity to the impact is different.

We compare the feeling to getting snapped with a rubber band.

GellyBall is much lower impact than paintball and airsoft.

Impact particularly at close range and on bare skin may leave a red mark. Red marks on bare skin or through thin or tight layers of clothes are common from close range combat – in our experience, these marks are not painful but can be apparent for some time.

is a waiver required?

Yes. please complete a waiver for each player using the tab at the bottom of the screen or this link (click here).

Our electronic waiver can be completed in advance and must be on file for every participant. For your convenience, a parent or legal guardian may easily include multiple minors on one waiver.

What is your GellyBall Arena made of?

Our indoor facility has about 1200 sq ft of dedicated arena. The arena is decorated with various objects like barrels, panels, plants, pallets, blocks and other items that we periodically rearrange to keep the arena fresh for returning guests.

Our green carpet  turf helps keep the players safe.

We have mounted blacklights around the arena and decorated with uv reactive paint and features along with fog machines to add to the experience. We call this Glow Mode and it is now included with every event!
