Where is Panic Point?
2808 Cedar Creek Rd. Youngsville, NC, about a 20 minute drive from 540 & Capital Blvd.
Do you have age restrictions?
We don’t book parties for players younger than 8. The guns are 5lbs, so kids between 8 and 10 sometimes get tired. The equipment is built for adults, but we can modify it slightly for younger players. Our missions range from very simple free-for-alls to complex tactical situations, so we can do anything from a birthday party to military-style scenarios.
Is it all outdoors?
All missions are played outdoors on “Chaos Field” which is about 200′ x 300′. Each side has a base. The center of the field has a “house” with 4 rooms, windows, and hallways. It is surrounded by barriers, tires, utility spools, and bunkers. There is a picture of Chaos Field on the home page. Depending on conditions, we sometimes allow limited play, such as free for all games, in the woods in “Apocalypse Arena”.
How long is a session?
A session is 2 hours, plus an optional 30 minutes of picnic area use. We have a 30 minute orientation and 90 minutes of game play. Each mission lasts from 5 to 8 minutes, so depending on how much debriefing goes on between missions, you’ll engage in about 8 to 10 missions per session.
Do you allow outside food/beverage?
We encourage outside food & beverage. Out picnic area has 4 tables under a shelter, and you have access to it during your session and for 30 minutes after. We sell cold drinks, or you can bring a cooler, pizzas, cake, whatever! No alcohol. We don’t have a license for that.
What is your Refund/Weather Policy
We always watch the weather closely, and will stay in contact with you regarding the status of the field. We usually wait until the day of a session to make a call one way or the other (unless its REALLY bad). If bad weather keeps us from playing, you are entitled to a refund of your deposit, or we can reschedule. If you want to modify your reservation for any other reason, you have until 48 hours before your session to cancel and receive a refund.
What is the gear like?
We use iCombat Equipment. 100% wireless M-4 short-barrel rifles that emit a “laser” beam similar to a remote control, so it cannot hurt you physically. Players wear bandoleers and/or headbands to engage in combat. All scoring is downloaded through a Command Module and displayed on a monitor after each round of play.
Do you offer Open Play?
Not at the present time, but all you need is 8 players to reserve a session, and the cost is only $20 per person. 10-16 players is only $199, which is $12.50 per player if you bring 16!
Do you do other Events?
Periodically, we hold cash prize tournaments. We also play our exclusive game, Apocalypse. More info on those here. But you can create your OWN special event at Panic Point if your group is large enough. We have 47 acres of open fields and woods, Chaos Field, Apocalypse Arena, and equipment that can function over the entire property. Play a huge game of capture the flag. Make your own rules on health and respawns. Play your own, private, Apocalypse game, where half the group is Zombies and the other half is Survivors. Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties, Youth Groups, Reunions, Corporate Outings, we can do it all!
