Owned and operated by Kiwis and staffed by those who have been involved with the industry for over 14 years, Lock N Load is run by paintballers for paintballers. Whether it’s your first time or you are a seasoned pro, you’ll feel at home on one of our nine themed fields! Add to this our staff with experience in sports, outdoor recreation, music & corporate events, we become your one stop shop for a good time!
Is it safe?
We have staff trained in First Aid on site and an emergency paramedic service available just up the road at Auckland Airport. There is also a doctors’ surgery situated at the Airport shopping centre.
How does it work?
There is a minimum age of 11 years for adult paintball and 7 years for low impact paintball. You need to be present at all times while your child is at Lock N Load. Any child under the age of 18 must have an adult responsible for them at all times. Parents and caregivers can watch the games or relax by the BBQ tables but they cannot leave their children on site by themselves.
You will need to arrive 20 minutes prior to your allocated time. After signing in and filling in the necessary forms, your child is given a safety instruction session and outfitted with all their equipment. The field referee then escorts your child and their friends to their field and explains the game they will be playing – including all the rules. Then it is GAME ON.
What do we bring?
If your child is going to wear our overalls and the weather looks fine then please remember that with all the running around they may get very hot – so choose appropriate clothing.
Your child will not be allowed on the field in jandals, sandals or bare feet. Sports shoes are best. You may also choose to bring along some light gloves – or purchase/hire them from the shop.
Games proceed unless the rain is very heavy. Please bring a jacket or raincoat for your child if the weather looks less than ideal. A spare change of clothes for afterwards is highly recommended. We have changing rooms and toilet facilities available.
How do we book?
Paintball is a sport that is best played in groups and for this reason we take bookings of 8 or more people. We are open from 9am - 5pm.
- Monday - Friday bookings - you can choose your time, please email us
- Saturday and Sunday bookings - sessions run at 9am, 12pm and 3pm
- Sunday ‘walk-ins’ - 12pm, no booking is required for these
Our walk-in sessions allow any number of people to attend. If you and your mate (or up to 6 mates) want to play, this is the best time to come.
