Indoor Extreme Sports

    If you are the parent of a teenager, you know how difficult it can be to plan a birthday party for them. When they were little, it was easy to get them excited about a cartoon themed celebration and some goodie bags. When they get older, it’s not that easy to plan an event that will make them happy.

    Last month, my son’s fifteenth birthday was coming around and I was picking my brain for weeks trying to figure out how we were going to commemorate his special day. I found out about Indoor Extreme Sports through an online search and I knew immediately that I had found just the experience to make me cool mother of the year in my son’s eyes for the rest of the year!

    Indoor Extreme Sports is the home of New York City’s only indoor Paintball/ReBall centers, host to the world’s most unique Laser Tag experiences featuring 5 Adrenaline Pumping fields to choose from! We run NYC’s first and only Archery Tag Centers. They have two Locations – Long Island City, Queens and their New Staten Island Facility! The convenience of having two locations right here in the city made it so easy to plan ahead for my son’s special day.

    When we arrived the morning of my son’s paintball party, I was immediately impressed by how friendly all of their staff was towards all of our party guests. They were meticulous about checking for and making sure that all of the guests had submitted waivers and were aware of all the rules of the game.

All of the kids and adults who were going to go out onto the paintball field were required to participate in a safety training prior to receiving their paintball guns and equipment. As a mom, and since I was responsible for other people’s kids that day too, this definitely made me feel more at ease.

    Staff members took the time to check every single child’s safety equipment to make sure they were properly protected. Once out on the paintball field, the referee was attentive to making sure everyone was safe while having a good time. My son and his guests had a ball and many of his friends from school who attended shared with me that they will be having their birthday parties at the Long Island location too since they had such a great time.

    I highly recommend that, if you live in the New York, Tri-State area, that you plan your teen or tween’s next party at Indoor Extreme Sports! Here are some tips to consider when you plan your special event:

  • Children under 10 cannot participate in paintball as per New York State Law
  • The paintballs are rubber and will not stain clothes but do hurt as much as the original paintballs
  • Make sure you ask all your guests to wear long sleeves and long pants because those paintballs hurt and will bruise if they come in direct contact with skin

  • The Long Island City location does not have a parking lot so arrive early enough to look for street parking
  • If you invite guests under age 10, they can still enjoy the indoor arcade while the older kids are on the paintball field

    Whether you’re a first time paintball novice or an experienced paintball player, Indoor Extreme will offer you the best time and most bang for the buck than any facility in the region! Take it from this now “cool” mom!

  1. This looks like the perfect activity to keep my crazies busy this winter holidays! Thank you for sharing!

  2. That’s a great combination of text and photos. All ingredients of a great blog post.

  3. Planning for a teen’s birthday can be one of the most hectic things to do but you surely did it perfectly! I’m sure your son was so happy spending the whole time having fun at the Sports ground, right?

  4. That does sound like a perfect place for a teen boy’s party. I even know of a few adult guys that would probably have a good time there today.

  5. This place sounds amazing! My oldest has been begging to go paint balling.

  6. Catherine Sargent says

    This looks like the perfect place for a teen’s birthday party. I know my son and his friends would absolutely love it.

  7. How fun! I think my kids would love to do something like that. My daughter has done some outdoor air soft, but the winter missions can be brutal. This would be a great way for her to get her adventure fix without freezing.

  8. Jessica May says

    I have a few teenagers who I know would love this. I think we will definitely be trying this soon!

  9. maria long says

    Looks like a great activity to occupy the kids on a rainy summer day or one that is super hot. Keeping boys entertained in the summer can be challenging.. this is just what they need.

  10. Now that looks like fun. It’s cool that they did the safety training before hand. That’s not usually offered at other outlets.

  11. Neely Moldovan says

    Oh, this is so fun! I think I would want to do this! I need to recruit the Hubs.

  12. It sounds like it was a perfect way for your son and his friends to celebrate his birthday! It’s always important to do what the child will enjoy and to plan around their likes and their energy level. It sounds like this birthday hit all the marks for doing just that!

  13. What a cool place. My daughter would love it here. She’s all about sports like this.

  14. Very cool. This will definitely win me Aunt of the Year when I throw a party like this for my nephew when he is old enough!

  15. Annemarie LeBlanc says

    My sons are young adults but they still love playing paintball with their friends. This place, Indoor Extreme Sports. looks like a really cool place to have a party or just to hang out with friends. It is also good that there is a safety training provided before embarking on a game of paintball.

  16. Very cool! What a fun day, I love this and would totally take my niece and nephew here for some extreme sports.

  17. My son would really love doing this! We would have to talk him into it but as soon as he started , he’d love it! Looks like everyone had a lot of fun.

  18. Indoor extreme sports look like a fun way to have some fun inside, away from the heat outside. I love that there’s so much to do here.

  19. This looks awesome! I’ve never tried this before, but I might just try to look one up this weekend and see what I get!

  20. Looks like so much fun. I love activities like this, both doing them and watching.

  21. Wow, this looks cool. Can’t wait until my son is old enough for this!

  22. I would love to do this with my oldest. I think we would have a blast. Those are some serious looking guns there. I wouldn’t want to take a shot directly on the skin at all.

  23. My kids would have a blast there. I would have to drag them out. Fun filled exercise for everyone.

  24. Tonya Tardiff says

    This looks like it was so fun! We have a place just like this nearby that I love going to with friends!

  25. This looks like such a good time! I’d love to do this.

  26. My older kids love extreme sports. I’m so thankful we have one of these in our neighborhood. It keeps them out of trouble.

  27. Oh cool! We have like that here too and we had so much fun playing as well.

  28. looks like heaps of fun! gotta love exercise combined with fun times.

  29. What a wonderful post! This seems like a fun time. My nephew would like this. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  30. Catvills says

    I love this! It will not only give the kids the exercise they need, but it will also teach them to “work as a team.” My family and I did play some paintball, but that was a long time ago. We might as well try it again soon a nd have good “clean” fun.

  31. Wow this would be perfect for my teenagers. They love stuff like this, and it is nice that it is an active activity. Wish we had this closer to home.

  32. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg, how fun!!!! This is totally something I would have loved when I was a kid! I was all about extreme everything.

  33. Oh man, this looks like it would be so much fun! I love paintball!
