  • For indoor and night-time parties, you can have a blast with U/V tracer ammo.

GellyBall can be enjoyed by children as young as five and adults of all ages.

GellyBall Blasters

Because the GellyBall Blasters are electronic, they will shoot roughly ten balls every second when you hold the trigger.  However, we instruct the participants to fire in bursts for maximum fun. The ammo pod is known as a “Hand Grenade,” and it stores 750 GellyBalls. The GellyBall Blaster fires a distance of 100 feet with pinpoint accuracy!

The blasters are battery-powered and will last a long time, so you get plenty of game-play out of a single charge. 

GellyBall Play

For our indoor arena, private parties include up to 10 players at a time. You can actually have as many players as you like. We play up to 10 at a time in the arena. If you have more than ten players in your group, we will simply create teams and rotate each game so everyone gets to play. 

While every GellyBall operator is different, many will introduce multi-player gameplay options that are similar to that which you’ll find with paintball facilities or video games. 

  • Freeze Tag: Players who have been struck must freeze until they are tagged by a teammate. 
  • Protect the Queen/King/President: A fun and accessible game, players on one team must protect a designated person from being struck at all costs. 
  • Capture the Flag: A flag is placed in the center of the arena, and teams battle to win it. If you’re stuck, you must go back to a fixed point on your side and respawn.
