How Do GellyBall Parties Work?
We arrive 30-60 minutes before the start time. We set up and get everything ready for an amazing party.
Your party will start with the kids picking teams, teams can be changed up through out the event so everyone gets to play on a team together if they want. We will hold a safety briefing to make sure all the players understand the rules, and then the fun begins as we run as many organized games as time allows. Please plan for cake and food after your GellyBall time.
Do I Have To Pay A Deposit?
All bookings require a $100 deposit via credit card, with the balance due when we arrive for your event. We accept cash and all major credit cards on the day of your event, no checks please. All deposits are non-refundable, but are transferable. If you need to change your party date we are happy to work with you to find a new date and apply your deposit to it. We do require 48 hours notice for any change that is not weather related.
Do I Have To Have A Liability Waiver?
Every participant, Child or Adult, must have a signed waiver on the day of the event. You can direct your guest to our website for them to download the waiver to bring with them, you can print and mail them with invitations, or we will have some printed and ready to be signed at the event. Any player with out a signed waiver will not be allowed to participate.
What Is GellyBall?
GellyBall is an ultra low impact sport, suitable for kids ages five and up. It uses GellyBall blasters an easy to use gun that doesn’t use much pressure to shoot GellyBalls. Unlike Nerf – where you have to constantly reload with ammo off the floor, a GellyBall Blaster holds 750 shots without reloading! Lots more fun!!!
What Is A GellyBall Blaster?
The GellyBall Blasters are electronic guns, so if you squeeze the trigger and hold it, they will shoot about 10 balls per second! However, we tell the players to shoot in “bursts” just a quick pull on the trigger. The pod that holds the ammo is called a “Grenade” and it holds 750 GellyBalls. The GellyBall Blaster accurately shoots a distance of up to 60 feet!
What Ammo Does A Gelly Blaster Use?
The GellyBall Blaster shoots GellyBalls! A GellyBall is like an Orbeez. GellyBalls are teeny tiny absorbent polymer beads that expand into small beads when soaked in water. They are biodegradable and nontoxic. They will not hurt your pets, plants or grass. Unlike paintballs that explode upon impact, GellyBalls simply bounce off or disintegrate, then they dehydrate! No stain, no mess!
Does It Hurt?
The GellyBall Blaster uses very low pressure to shoot, so it only feels like a good snap of a rubber band. But you’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even notice!
Is GellyBall Like Paintball or Nerf?
It’s all the fun and excitement of paintball, without the pain and mess! Like paintball, you get to play all kinds of different games.
GellyBall is WAY more fun than Nerf! The only similarity is that you get to shoot ammo. You aren’t constantly picking ammo up from the ground to reload; the GellyBall Blaster holds 750 beads! And it shoots 10 GellyBalls per second and accurately shoots up to distances of 60 feet!
Will GellyBalls Hurt My Yard Or Pets?
GellyBall beads are non-toxic, non-staining and biodegradable. They are safe for pets, yards and people! They are water-hydrated and will shrink to a tiny size before disintegrating entirely; no mess, no clean-up!
How Many Players Can Play At The Same Time?
We typically run 5 on 5 team games, however the referee may adjust that up or down based on the size of the play area or the number of players. If your group has more players than can play at one time players will be rotated in and out so fair play time is had by all.
What happens in the event of bad weather?
For the safety of your guests and our crew, we can not set up if it is raining or if rain looks imminent. However, we are happy to reschedule your event for another day.
