The paintballs are non-toxic, non-staining, and virtually harmless, but you should wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. After all, you will be running, rolling, diving, and jumping around! While there are no hard and fast guidelines for what you should wear or not, we do have some suggestions.
Comfortable clothes you can move in
Long sleeves if you’re sensitive
A baseball hat
Clothes you won’t mind getting dirty
Very short shorts
Download the waiver ahead of time
Everyone will need to sign and fill out the paperwork to play paintball. For all players under 18, they will also need their parent or guardian signature. Often times parents bring the friends of their children to play paintball. It is recommended that each child has their own parent or guardian sign the waiver. It is provided here for convenience and can also be signed at the field.
There are no exceptions to signing the waiver and it may not be modified.

Do I have to share the field?
Just you and your friends
Urban War Zone Paintball is the first and only field that offers truly unlimited private play. All day. No limits. When you go out to play on one of the fields it'll be your team only. Unlimited Private Play is included for every group of 6 or more players.
There will be other people in the common area where you check in, sit at picnic tables, and our indoor restrooms.
We accept 10+ years old
The recommended age to play paintball is 11 years old, however we take 10 year olds who are properly dressed and who can follow the rules. This is the standard age limit for all fields in Houston and no reputable paintball field would accept anyone under 10.
Age limits are set by the insurance companies and non-negotiable. If you have young kids who can play, rest assured that they will not be thrown in with adults or other parties. Unlimited private play is standard at Urban War Zone Paintball!
Free downloadable invitations

All guests agree:
Urban War Zone is an FPO (field paint only) facility for all players.
ASTM Masks are required at all times inside the playing areas.
Barrel socks must be worn at all times outside the playing areas.
Yelling "hit", "out", or "raising your hand in the air" signals to the refs that you are out of the game.
When a player is hit, the player must place the barrel sock on the marker, walk of the field with the marker pointed at the ground and one hand raised in the air to signal they are out of the game.
All participants must be at least 10 years old to play. No exceptions.
Fighting will result in immediate dismissal from the park and you will be barred from returning.
Urban War Zone is a family friendly park. Please refrain from cussing or engaging in any offensive or threatening manner of speaking.
Guests may reuse paint purchased at the park as long as it bears the recognized signature of a park manager and is in good condition when tested.
Do NOT overshoot players who have already been hit.
No alcohol on property.
All participants agree to abide by these rules and other rules of the field. Other rules may apply.
This is the bare minimum we ask from every player. Additionally we ask that each guest be a good "citizen" and help support the a positive community atmosphere. Guests who are detracting from the family friendly atmosphere may be refused service and barred from the park.

Your fun is our business
Operating a paintball park is a part time hobby for most of the owners in the Houston market, but for Urban War Zone it's serious business. There's a lot at stake when our guests trust us with the things they hold most dear, their friends, family, and special events. We meet that challenge head on.
If it sounds like we are flexing, it's because we are. Our team is literally chalked full of people who live and breath paintball and customer service. You're in the right hands when you play at Urban War Zone Paintball.
Would you like to join our team? We'd like to hear from you.
Our guests have different opinions about how serious COVID-19 is. We obviously aren't experts on the disease and we've decided to take our cues from the community itself. Our guests, neighbors, and friends are asking us to be safe but not overbearing. We are cleaning and sanitizing everything and wearing masks ourselves. Urban War Zone is incredibly popular and so we've also limited how crowded the park can get. The rest is up to you.
3 part cleaning process
We have always sanitized our gear at Urban War Zone, but since COVID-19 we've added a final rinse through bleach to finalize the process. Helmets, markers, and chest protectors are all cleaned and sanitized after every use.
Urban War Zone has indoor restrooms with touchless sinks and toilets. Door handles and surfaces are cleaned hourly. Ample supplies of soap are provided. Outdoor sinks with a single push button and soap is also provided so you can wash your hands and clean up.
We sanitize each picnic table when a family leaves and we've spaced the tables out to give each group plenty of space to interact with each other without being in direct contact with other guests.
Covid Mask requirements
All team members are required to wear a mask, inside and out, at all times while at the facility. Cotton, surgical, or N95 are acceptable.
Guests are not required to wear a mask, but it is appreciated when you do - especially at check in where more people may congregate.
