Paintball adventure for the whole family

Family is one of the essential factors that help an individual feel loved and confident. Growing up in a loving family environment gives us a feeling of security, happiness and deep connection. Moreover, spending quality time among the family provides us with many benefits – less stress, less isolation, longer life and a healthier lifestyle overall, to name just a few.

Samy’s Ranch Medulin, situated in Croatia near Pula, offers various activities that can be undertaken with your family. Whether you are a paintball player (to-be), horse riding lover, or in search of a thrilling quad experience, make sure to include our ranch in your list of amusing things to do with kids in Istria.
Paintball is extremely adventurous and fun for the whole family, but families whose juniors are under 12 can have a tough time finding a paintball field where their kids can play as well. Paintball guns are still guns, and that makes them unsafe for use when the youngest ones are concerned. This is why we have decided to help.

Our JT SplatMaster gun allows children aged 9 and above to join their parents in this thrilling battle. It has all the perks of a regular paintball gun, but minimizes the feeling of pain and makes it more like being hit by a rubber band. Nothing to worry about, especially if you think about all the amusement ahead of you!

A few tips to make this a pleasant experience for everyone
  • There is no official paintball outfit that you are required to wear, however, there are some things that are good to keep in mind. For example, long sleeve shirts and long pants will help prevent bruising when the colorful paintballs hit you. In order for your opponents to have a harder time shooting you, you might want to wear dark or camouflage colored clothes. Ideally, these will be clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or ripped. Make sure the kids’ clothes are a good fit and there are no sleeves or pants that are too long.
  • As there will be a lot of running and possibly jumping, wear some comfortable shoes or, if you feel ready for a real battle, a pair of combat boots (don’t forget summers are hot in Croatia, though).
  • Family members that take pride in long hair are advised to tie it down or make a bun, as it might get in the way and potentially cause a surprise hit.
  • When dividing the family in teams, take into consideration each person’s abilities, strengths and weaknesses, and group the people so that both teams have an even chance of having fun and winning. 
If you feel a good, old paintball game won’t be enough of family time for you, try by adding a guided horseback riding tour around Medulin and its surroundings. With our skilled guides, even unexperienced riders are bond to feel secure and relaxed while enjoying the company of these beautiful creatures.
