We need your help in ensuring that your guests arrive around 15 minutes BEFORE your booked time, to make sure their waivers are completed so that we can get your group started on time.

Yes! You are more than welcome to bring cake or cupcakes in when you make a reservation! However, we provide a wide selection of drinks and food at the Dig-In Cafe, so please leave those at home. No outside coolers, drinks, or food allowed.

Parties typically last anywhere from 30 min-3 hours depending on what package you go with! Parties aren’t “timed” but depend on what speed your group moves through each activity. Most parties are an average of 1.5-2hrs.
Can I hold a party or group reservation without a deposit?
A deposit is required to make a reservation to hold your spot/table and to ensure we have equipment for you.
What if some of my guests don’t show up? Do I still pay for them?
You may be eligible for a partial refund of your deposit. We use the deposit to make sure we have the necessary staff on hand for your party size.
Your deposit reserves your space and makes sure we have the staff dedicated for your party or event. Your deposit can be refunded by the next business day once we verify your area is clean, and there is no missing or damaged property.
What happens if more party or group guests arrive than the contracted amount?
Typically this isn’t an issue and we can work them in. Group sizes of 10-14 are best. With more, we will just rotate them through activities.
If the date/time I want for my party is not available, what are my options?

What Is Mini Paintball?
For those looking for a more modern alternative to the paintball and airsoft scene, gel blasters are here! These eco-friendly toys fire water-based gel beads that burst upon impact.
With these pellets come just enough of a little sting to make your game exciting – without causing serious physical harm like other options might. So if you’re in search of an interesting way to have fun while being kinder to the environment, try giving Mini Paintball at Action Jack’s a shot!
What should I wear to play MiniPaintball?
The gellets do NOT stain, wear clothes you don’t mind playing in. We suggest wearing a long sleeve top and pants to help protect your skin from the impact of a gellet as you’re still shooting projectiles at each other.
