It does really bloody hurt, I had a bruise the size of a side plate on the inside of my thigh after getting hit. It's quite a bit scary in the being hunted sense, and there's a lot of running around if you play properly. But you know her best, if you think she's enjoy it then why not!

I hated it. It hurts and it scared me!

I'm very fit, active and adventurous (love things like white water rafting), but would never go paint balling again. However, lots of people obviously enjoy it- and you know your DM best.

I have 11yr old ds rather than 60 yr old dm but he's been to several laser tag parties rather than paint balling.

All the fun of racing around playing shoot em up, no bruises or paint.' Bullets' to buy. Win win. He and his mates live it. Locally we have at least 3 outdoor ones and 2 indoor ones. Not sure if they all use the term laser tag or if that just is for one brand but if you google you'll see what is around locally.
