Gellyball is a new game that uses an electric pistol/rifle much like an airsoft pistol that shoots an 8mm water orb. The water orb allows for a much lighter impact and no mess. Unlike paintball, there is no messy paint, and because of the lighter ball and slower velocity of the Gelly Blaster, they hurt less, and generally don’t leave a welt. Because it’s so much safer, its more appropriate for younger kids.
Is it safe?
Gellyball uses a polymer orb that when water is added it becomes 8mm in size and upon impact shatters and leaves a small water drop. Low impact means less sting and no bruising. All persons under 18 years of age must wear full goggles during play. Players over 18 may opt for safety glasses. Having been hit in the head and lip (usually an easy place to draw blood) hasn’t broken the skin on the owner. Persons with health problems that limit running or walking are cautioned that it is a strenuous exercise.
What ages play GellyBall?
GellyBall players range from 5 – 99. Basically, if you are good with running/walking 60′, you shouldn’t have an issue. The lower age limit is simply because the safety gear will size down only so far. If the child is larger for their age, it may be possible. We are happy to test fit a child before you register to be sure.
What is a Gelly Blaster?
A Gelly Blaster is a airsoft style polymer orb gun that shoots out a GellyBall. The Blasters are light weight and easy to use, with only two controls, a safety, and a trigger. They have a hopper on top that holds 750 rounds of GellyBalls. This is usually enough to play 4 or 5 matches.
How much do GellyBalls cost?
For people that want to play GellyBall at home, we sell GellyBalls for $10 per approximately 10,000 rounds. While you are playing at BSR, there is no charge for reasonable GellyBall use.
What does it cost to play the game?
We charge $10 per hour to play. This price includes field time, use of Gelly Blasters, and reasonable GellyBalls. We will ask you to not waste ammo shooting at nothing, but one or two shots to ensure blaster is on is fine.
Can I rent Gelly Blasters?
No, Gelly Blasters are handed out when you enter the field of play, and they are returned when you leave. They are randomly handed out, and we make sure there is at least 1/3 of a hopper of balls when you start. You may not rent one exclusively for your use or for use away from where we are at.
Can I purchase Gelly Blasters?
Yes, however, they may not be used on our fields or mobile sites. This is a safety issue. If the blaster is not cared for properly it can malfunction and fire at a rate that is too high. During any of our events, we hand out equipment that we maintain and test. Basically it comes down to our insurance will not cover any game where a non-BSR blaster is used. You may purchase one for use at home or at events that BSR does not put on.
