CRU Paintball: The Ultimate Michigan Paintball Experience

At CRU Paintball, everything we do is part of a straightforward mission: to provide fun, safe paintball entertainment to as many people as possible. We’re a family owned and operated company dedicated to sharing the thrill of paintball with as many people as we can. We proudly serve Metro Detroit, Flint, Genesee, Ingham and Oakland Counties, though we get visitors from all over the Midwest.

CRU Paintball started in Chris Dixon’s backyard with his youth group in 2008. In December of 2010, we moved to our current location on Clio road, which includes a 50,000 square foot facility and 20 acres of outdoor fields.

Safety: Our Top Priority

Our commitment to giving our customers a great paintball experience is second only to our commitment to keeping them safe. We take no small amount of pride in our spotless safety record, which we diligently maintain through a dedication to safety both on and off the field. From using professional safety gear to keeping referees on the field at all times, we go the extra mile to ensure that each and every player goes home safe. Keeping our fields safe always has been and always will be our #1 priority.

CRU Paintball: Where Anyone Can Play

We believe anyone and everyone should be able to join the fun on our paintball fields. Anyone seven years and up can step onto our fields and have a good time. We’re happy to put children in groups and assign a referee to follow them during the game, ensuring they’re never alone on the field. We also know paintball can be intimidating to new players– which is why we pair green players with veterans to give them a fair chance. Another common concern is that paintball might hurt or bruise, so we offer low-impact paintball for anyone worried about the impact from a high-speed paintball gun. Making paintball fun and accessible for everyone– new or experienced, young or old, etc.– is part of the CRU Paintball DNA.

A Paintball Facility Like No Other

CRU Paintball offers the largest indoor paintball field in Michigan along with 20 acres of outdoor woodsball and speedball fields. Our facility also boasts indoor bathrooms with plumbing, a concession stand and a full-size paintball store for anything a player could need. Our pro shop offers equipment rentals and sales, with guns priced anywhere from $35 to $1,800 to accommodate new players as well as die-hard paintballers. If you’d like to watch a friend or family member play, you’re welcome to enjoy the view from our enclosed viewing area inside the facility. You won’t find another paintball facility like ours — we guarantee it.

In honor of those who serve or have served with the armed forces and law enforcement, we offer police and military discounts of 10%.
