Operating one of Pittsburgh's largest airsoft facilities, Valhalla Indoor Airsoft's owners named their arena after the legendary hall of Viking warriors as a sign of respect and a celebration of camaraderie. Realizing that airsoft can look intimidating from the outside, they maintain a nonaggressive, family-friendly atmosphere to encourage new players to try the sport. The house rules emphasize safety, such as never intentionally taking headshots, saying "bang bang" when within 5 feet of an opponent, and never planting old banana peels.
With the house rules in mind, players enter a warehouse filled with cover such as rooms constructed of wood, camouflage barricades, stacks of tires, and even a car crashed into a stop sign. These challenging obstacles foster a battleground-like ambience that demands teamwork and tactical thinking for players to win Valhalla's scenario-based and objective games. And to complement bouts of "Rob the Bank" or "Get Out of Jail," the facility also house an onsite pro shop, Cool Stuff by L&M, where the staff services gear and dispenses advice.
