What is a Private Game?
When reserving a private game your group will select a specific date and time to play. Since it is a private game, you will only being playing with members of your group. There may be other groups of players at the field that day but you will never have outside players allowed in your game. Private games also include group referees who will organize and supervise your game from start to finish. Before the start of every private game a staff member will run the group through a safety orientation explaining the safety and game rules as well as demonstrating how to operate your rental equipment.

Private Game Policies as of 2021
How far in advance do I need to book my game?
It is recommended that private games be booked at least one week in advance. Reservations with less notice are available but spots are usually limited so the sooner you can reserve the better. When booking during peak times (i.e. weekends), we do recommend paying your deposit or prepayment as soon as you are sure on a date and time. By doing so, you will reserve that spot and guarantee that no other group may book that session. All reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis and no spots will be held with the minimum deposit or prepayment. If you have not provided us with some form of payment (i.e. cash, check or credit card) to cover the deposit or prepayment, you do not have a reservation.
How and where do I make my payment?
Deposits and prepayments can be made by calling our main office in Clinton Township or through our Online Reservation Center by clicking here. Acceptable forms of payment are Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. For more information on reserving a private game contact the store at 586-463-9500
Where and when can we play?
What time does my group need to arrive?
The entire group needs to arrive at least 30 – 45 minutes prior to your scheduled start time to allow for registration and orientation. We will not extend your playing time due late players. Players arriving after the start time will have to wait for a staff member to get them orientated and joined in with their group. We also request that whoever is playing fill out a waiver in advance to speed up check-in at the field. Waivers can be found by clicking here.
Due to the time it takes to register players, perform a safety orientation, pass out rental equipment and play, your group must arrive with at least 60 minutes left in the session if you wish to play (this does not mean we will extend your session though). If your group has not checked-in by the cut off time we will deem the session has been canceled. If this happens no refund will be given. It would be possible to reschedule the outing but it would be subject to our Rescheduling Policy and a fee would apply.
Where do we park?
Clinton Township Indoor Field – The Indoor Field has its own parking lot surrounding the building. Once you park in lot you will use the side door in the parking lot that says Field Entrance. There is no fee for parking at this location.
Metamora Outdoor Field – The parking and registration area is located right behind the Cascaddan Lounge in Metamora. There is no fee for parking at this location.
What if I get more players at a later date?
Additional players are welcome to join your group on the day of play and will be charged whatever group rate you have reserved under. Though a few extra players are never a problem, please notify us before hand if it looks like your group is going to be much larger than you previously reserved for so we can prepare accordingly.
What food service options do you offer?
Clinton Township Indoor Field – We offer full pizza party packages for all of our private groups at the Indoor Field. These can be purchased in advance when you reserve or at the field when you check-in. We will provide plates, napkins, utensils and a private party room for any group who purchases a food package. In general outside food is not allowed but guests are permitted to bring in their own desserts (we will store in fridge/freezer for you) or a substitute entree for a guest who may require something different. Outside deliveries are not allowed.
Metamora Outdoor Field – Currently we do not offer any food service options aside from cold drinks at the Metamora location. Guests are permitted to bring their own food or go inside the Cascaddan Lounge which is located on the property.
What is the rescheduling policy?
Games can be rescheduled (not refunded) free of charge as long as the group organizer provides us with 7 days or more advance notice. Anything less than 7 days notice will be a $50 rescheduling fee due at the time of the reschedule. Reservations that need to be rescheduled on the day of play will be subject to a $100 fee. If your group does not show up on the day of play and you have not made arrangements with us to reschedule you will automatically forfeit your reservation without refund.
What is the refund policy?
All advance purchase private games and/or deposits are non-refundable once paid to Lone Wolf Paintball and will not be refunded for any reason. Your advance purchase for a private outing is the same as buying a ticket to a concert or sporting event. If you do not use it, no credit, refund, exchange or other form of compensation will be paid for persons or groups not present on the date and time of the outing. Additionally, if any players are deemed to be in a condition that would not allow them to participate in a safe manner (i.e. under the influence of alcohol or drugs), they will not be permitted to play due to liability reasons and no refund will be given. Lone Wolf Paintball reserves to right to make any final judgements regarding this matter. In the rare instance you do see an advertised rate lower than what you previously booked for we do not offer rate adjustments of any kind and will not provide any additional compensation.
What if some of my players have their own equipment?
If anyone is using their own equipment the group rate will remain the same but they will receive unlimited compressed air fills for the marker for the duration of the session (we do not fill CO2). If a player chooses to use their own marker they are responsible for providing all the necessary components to play (i.e. tank, hopper, barrel cover, etc). We will not part out any of our rental guns for players that are missing pieces. If a player needs to use a barrel cover for the day they are available for purchase only for $5. Regardless if they are using their own equipment or not, all players in a private group MUST use field paint only!
Can we bring our own paintballs?
NO. All paintballs must be purchased at the playing field on the day of play. NO EXCEPTIONS! Extra paint pricing can be found below.
What if the weather is bad?
We play rain or shine. In case of lightning or weather we deem unsafe, we will delay outdoor games or will reschedule, not refund for the players that showed. However, keep in mind that while it may be lightning where you live, it may not be at the field. If a session is more than 50% complete it will be classified as a complete session.
