Hinterlands Paintball operation has been running in Hamilton for many years and offers you a professional and friendly service, high safety standards and quality gear, all situated over an awesome 10 acre block on the banks of the Waikato river.
Our three outdoor fields are brimming with atmosphere, action & adventure making Paintball at Hinterland THE place to experience this amazing team sport.
A fern lined creek runs through the centre of our pine gully & the many trees, ferns & barricades are perfect cover for those commando moments! This open, flowing field with no blackberry bushes! allows for great game movement, helping ensure all players are involved throughout the session.
Containing over 60 strategically placed obstacles, with a central fort for the taking our Speedball field is tactically completely different from the pine gully, it is a fast moving highly strategic game which is great fun and has paint flying in all directions!
A challenging field with swampy area, small stream, heaps of ferns, punga’s and unevenly shaped terrain. Rated a favourite by players, select the $80 full Paintball package to experience this awesome zone when available.

This is high on the list of questions asked by new players! Getting hit by a paintball generally stings or smarts, especially if shot inside 6 meters and directly on your skin and can often result in a small welt or bruise. The best comparison for how it feels is snapping yourself with a rubber band. Overalls help with providing another layer of protection and we have a limited number of chest and back protectors for those really concerned. Paintball masks come as standard for all players. You are welcome to bring along your own extra protective padding if you wish.
If you’re really nervous about Paintball, Outdoor Laser Tag is a great alternative.
You’re welcome to bring along your own marker, mask, gas cannister & hopper and in this case you will receive double the paintballs on whichever package you choose. You must however purchase your paintballs through Hinterland – we do not permit you to bring your own.
Paintball is fine to carry on in the rain & plenty of groups do. However, if the weather is forecast is looking really bad, we are happy to re-arrange your booking to another day/time. Showers are completely fine.
It all depends….some players make 100 paintballs go along way, others use them all in 10mins. The average shoot rate at our site is 250 paintballs per person, therefore it is likely you’ll use more than 100 paintballs during your event. The markers are semi – automatic, i.e. every time you pull the trigger a paintball will fire.
Yes, we’ve got very small overalls suitable for small 11yr olds and some very large overalls suitable for larger adults.
Yes, there’s no charge for spectators. The facilitator of your group will advise you where your friend can watch from safely. Spectators need to ensure they listen carefully to the rules given by the facilitator and follow them, to keep themselves safe.
Unfortunately no, there is no running water or electricity to the site so we’re unable to provide these facilities. We do have toilets and a large tank of water for washing your hands.
No, we do not allow pets on site.
It’s likely that other groups will be playing Paintball at the same time yes, however you’ll have your own platform from which your group will be based. We rotate groups around our fields, so unless we’ve combined you with another group (we reserve the right to do this if you have under 10 players), you’ll be playing on your own field with your own players.
Young children must be actively supervised at ALL times by a responsible and known adult while at our site. Paintballs are travelling very fast (250 feet per second) and it’s important that care givers keep children safe at all times. It is NOT Hinterlands responsibility to supervise young children and/or non-players.
Paintball is a whole heap of fun for everyone & we look forward to seeing you soon at Hinterland’s Paintball fields at Horotiu, Hamilton.
