Futureball Paintball spreads 14 playing fields out across 115 acres of primed land to create one of Michigan's largest outdoor paintball and airsoft parks. The fields welcome competitors for open play on weekends with Saturday and Sunday sessions from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The airsoft rental package fills hand-holsters with an AEG airsoft rifle, a high-capacity magazine, 2,000 pellets, and two batteries. Teams of color commandos take aim during open paintball sessions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. The paintball Sniper package refits and refuels hungry Tippmann X7 Markers with a sniper barrel, nitro bottle, a 180-round feeder, and 600 rounds of paintballs with Empire E-Vent goggles protecting eyes from unwittingly changing shades.
Exchange crossfire on playing fields ranging from a Futureball cityscape complete with dozens of buildings, bridges, and barricades to an urban assault zone with a school bus and sniper stations. The 5-acre picnic area offers covered pavilions and seating where up to 500 water-based paint warriors can snack, strategize, or sign their latest limited-edition prints.
Futureball Paintball Inc.
One empty school bus, 27 abandoned cars, and a desolate two-story house are the only refuges for combatants roving an expansive urban field. Fourteen additional playfields set the stage for games, surrounding players in open fields and dense forests. It's at Futureball Paintball's 115-acre facility that friendly paintball and Airsoft battles unfold each day and have unfolded for more than 20 years. While vehicle carcasses characterize the urban landscapes, two airfields exhibit red inflatables that mimic the ruins of ancient bounce castles. Between games, a 5-acre picnic area serves as neutral ground to strategize and nibble snacks.
To ensure fair play, Futureball Paintball's staff leads brief orientations and monitors all action. They can also repair and upgrade guns.
