Alaska is home to some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and outdoor areas. Even though it is by far the largest state by surface area, it’s pretty small in terms of population, being home to only 733,000 people.
With these vast open spaces and plenty of natural covers, you would think that this landscape would be heaven for establishing paintball fields, providing a unique and challenging experience. But the truth is that Alaska barely has any paintball parks, and the few there seem to be closed temporarily or permanently.
There’s more money in oil fields than paintball fields, especially in a state where the winters are long, snowing from October to April, and may reach temperatures as low as -50 degrees. It’s not a likely place to have a thriving sports community, but here are the best paintball fields in Alaska.

Start a paintball business.
I encourage anyone brave enough to venture into the world of entrepreneurship and start their own business, especially to open a speedball or woodsball course in Alaska. Here are a few tips on how to get started:
- Choose a location for your course. You’ll need an ample, open space with plenty of hiding places and obstacles.
- Create a website that will help you promote your business and attract customers.
- Get the necessary permits and licenses from your state, if there are any. It may require some research, but you must ensure you operate legally and do not get in trouble. You may want to contact a law firm to review your safety waivers which all customers must sign to protect your company against liability and disputes.
- Purchase the equipment you need to host private parties and open play, which includes markers, hoppers, tanks, CO2, and paintballs.
- Find a supplier of paintballs at a reasonable price and order in bulk to save money. You’ll need to refill your supply regularly, so you must find a trustworthy supplier.
- Offer discounts and promotions to attract customers. Welcome beginners and give them some training. Many people are interested in trying new activities in a friendly and competitive environment, but they may not be aware of you. Offering discounts is a great way to get them in the door.
- Hold special events or tournaments to generate interest in your paintball arena, which is a great way to get people talking about your business and bring in new players. You may even get sponsors.
