Everyone loves to find new games. It’s fun to experience new activities, but it’s even better to be the person who gets to introduce their friends to something cutting edge and exciting. GellyBall has been around for a few years and is growing rapidly, but it’s still relatively new to people in our area. In this article, we want to introduce you to GellyBall and help you get started playing it. 

What is GellyBall?

GellyBall is a groundbreaking new shooting game for kids aged five and up. The ammo is less damaging than paintball or airsoft, making it ideal for smaller children. Parents, grandparents, and adults all enjoy joining in the fun! You won’t believe how much fun you’ll have playing this game!

What Makes GellyBall Unique

Many people have played paintball and airsoft. While those games are fun, it is common to have welts and even open wounds after you play. Other complaints we’ve heard about paintball and airsoft include:

  • The Mess: Paintballs explode and leave paint behind everywhere. Airsoft bb’s are metal balls fired at a high rate, so if you play on your property, you can expect a mess. 
  • Cost: Paintball and airsoft guns are complicated and expensive. They are typically quite expensive both in the initial purchase price and maintenance. 
  • Ammunition: Paintball and airsoft ammo can be expensive as well. You may end up purchasing in bulk and having to store it in large containers. 
  • Safety: Paintball and airsoft players often have to invest in other protective gear like helmets, goggles, and body armor. These items can be both expensive and cumbersome. It’s hard to run around, jump, duck, and hide when you’re wearing so much gear!
  • Gameplay: Younger kids find paintball and airsoft guns too complicated, ammo too painful, and gear too cumbersome to have fun. That may mean your family can’t enjoy these shooting games together. 

GellyBall answers all these concerns with a revolutionary product. 

GellyBall Ammo 

“GellyBall ammo is 90% water, biodegradable and non-toxic, containing no paint or stain.”


Getting hit with GellyBall ammo feels a lot like getting flicked with a rubber band. For kids as young as five, that’s essentially painless but still provides enough feedback for older kids and adults to know they’ve been hit, which adds to the fun. 

GellyBall ammo is completely biodegradable and leaves essentially no mess behind. If playing indoors, you can vacuum or sweep up the remains, but if you’re outside, the remnants will just take care of themselves. 

GellyBall Blasters

One of the complaints about paintball is that shooters are often inaccurate. From our sister company Black Mountain Adventure Zone:

“Our battery-operated automatic handguns have a range of up to 60 feet and can shoot at opposing players and targets with pinpoint accuracy. It will probably take just one game for your kids to feel like a pro.”

At Elite Action Gaming, we host GellyBall parties, but you don’t necessarily need us to play. You can take GellyBall home with you, with blasters costing much less than paintball guns! 

GellyBall Gameplay

With essentially painless ammo, GellyBall players do not necessarily need as much safety gear as other shooting games. We require our players to wear a lightweight helmet and masks with eye protection, but body armor is typically unnecessary. 

Indoors or Outdoors

GellyBall can be played inside or outdoors. If you’re in the Asheville area, we have an indoor arena at Black Mountain Adventure Zone that is set up and ready to go on a rainy day. Our team can also come to you if you even have a relatively small indoor space. We bring our own obstacles as well as the blasters and ammo.
