Why Impact© Paintball?
Fun and safe paintball
Low and Medium impact© paintball
Everyone knows high impact paintball (.68 caliber) can leave a welt or bruise. That’s why TAG Adventure Park near Monterey offers Low Impact (.50) and Medium Impact© paintball at our fields so everyone can enjoy paintball! We invested over $500,000 and 10 years in developing a specially made formula – Medium Impact©. This is a 50% reduction in impact, which results in 200% more fun!
We also TEST our paintballs. Each new lot is tested before it is used. They must meet Bullseye’s (our owner’s) high standards: non staining, accuracy, 14% less mass, elastic test (less than 150 newton/meters) and more!

Frequently Asked Questions
Not at our fields! We invested over $500,000 and 10 years in R&D to create Medium Impact © .68 cal paintball – a reduction of over 50% from High Impact! And our Low Impact is even lighter! We took info from our research and applied it to the .50 cal platform to achieve over 90%+ reduction from High Impact!!
It should feel like the sting of a rubber band snap (lasts about 10 seconds). The more you layer your clothing, the less you’ll feel!
Long pants and long sleeves that you don’t mind getting dirty, layering your clothes is a great idea.
Closed toed shoes only, NO sandals or opened toed shoes!
Our paintballs DO NOT stain! They wash right out – we guarantee it!
For paintball, our minimum age it 8 years old.
Our field near Monterey is open Saturdays and Sundays. You can book Weekdays by appointment only.
If you call on the weekends, we may not answer but will return your call as soon as we can. We have paid players in front of us on the weekends (with loaded paintball markers).
We still play! Since 1984, we have never closed for weather! “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad planning.”
BONUS: Plastic trash bags make great makeshift ponchos.
BONUS: Bring no-fog wipes/spray for goggles. We sell wipes.
NO, sorry. Dogs love to EAT paintballs (and there are A LOT on the ground) and its not good for them (throwing up & diarrhea).
Also, we have had irresponsible owners in the past (incessant barking, whining, not picking up the poop, and one player got bit) That’s enough for us.
In addition, pets are distracting and distractions are not safe.
Lastly, paintball parks are a ‘gun-noise’ environment which isn’t a healthy environment for pets (terrifies some breeds).
We love animals TOO MUCH for this. Sorry 🙁
No, you must use our paintballs for your safety and enjoyment. We put a lot of work into developing a system that has less impact and want play to be fair for everyone.
We only use high grade 4-star rated paintballs that are eco-friendly, water soluble, biodegradable, light/temperature, moisture sensitive. If you dropped OUR paintballs on the ground, in 3 weeks you wouldn’t recognize them, in 5 weeks you wouldn’t even find them!!
TAG tests each new lot number of paintballs before use. They must meet Bullseye’s high standards: non staining, accuracy, 14% less mass, elastic test (less than 150 newton/meters, etc.)
Another TAG Innovation: we actually ‘pay’ players to be good ,which eliminates (95+%) of the following: “Potty Mouth, Lord’s Name in Vain, Blind/Friendly Fire, Shooting Too: Close/Many Times/HOT/Dead players, etc.”
TAG has over 10 award-winning courses. TAG has some SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED courses for Beginners; CQB that law enforcement uses weekdays; Trenches (created by a decorated US Marine), A Paintball Fort, multiple Speedball courses, Fox Holes, Natural Terrain (river bed). Another amazing feature…they can be COMBINED to create LARGER and more dynamic courses…to keep your games fresh and exciting!
TAG has picnic tables and benches under shaded aluminum awnings to shelter you from weather between games. In hot weather, TAG uses MISTERS (40 ft long, 2 gal/minute, 1000 psi to drop up to 30 degrees!!)
Our staging area is protected by netting 12′ tall. As netting wears, it inevitably gets holes in them. To properly maintain safety at TAG, we DOUBLED our netting to ensure integrity. Yes, is is the most expensive solution…but your safety is worth it to us!
