Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Gellyball blasters shoot a soft gel ball, much like an Orbeez that your kids probably already play with. Shot from easy-to-use Blasters, the soft Gellyballs bounce off and simply disintegrate, leaving no stain, mess or sting. Unlike Nerf guns, where the players have to constantly reload with ammo off the ground, a Gellyball Blaster holds 750 shots without reloading! Just pull the trigger and they shoot! Easy even for 8 year old kids to use.

What is Gellyball?

GellyBall is an ultra low impact sport – suitable for kids age four and up. It uses GellyBall blasters – an easy-to-use gun that doesn’t use much pressure to shoot GellyBalls.  Unlike Nerf – where you have to constantly reload with ammo off the floor, a GellyBall Blaster holds 750 shots without reloading!!! Lots more fun!!!

What is a Gellyball Blaster?

The GellyBall Blasters are electronic guns, so if you squeeze the trigger and hold it, they will shoot about 10 balls per second! However, we tell the players to shoot in “bursts” – just a quick pull on the trigger. The pod that holds the ammo is called a “Hand Grenade” – it holds 750 GellyBalls. The GellyBall Blaster accurately shoots a distance of 100 feet!

What ammo does a Gellyball Blaster use?

The GellyBall Blaster shoots GellyBalls!  A GellyBall is like an Orbeez. GellyBalls are teeny tiny absorbent polymer beads that expand into small beads when soaked in water.  They are biodegradable and nontoxic. They will not hurt your pets, plants or grass. Unlike paintballs that explode upon impact, GellyBalls simply bounce off or disintegrate – then they dehydrate!  No stain, no mess! 

How long does 1500 Gellyballs last?

Not Sure… How long does a glass of wine last? It’s really all up to the individual. GellyBall Blasters are electronic guns, so if you squeeze the trigger and hold it, they will shoot about 10 balls a second! But we tell the players to shoot in “Bursts” just a quick pulls on the trigger. That being said, we have found that the average group goes through 1,500 GellyBalls each in about a 2 hour party. Of course if you have some of those trigger happy kids, you can always get some more ammo. Another 750 shots is just $10, and you can split it amongst the guests.

Does it hurt?

The GellyBall Blaster uses very low pressure to shoot, so it only feels like a good snap of a rubber band. But you’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even notice! 

Is Gellyball like paintball?

It’s all the fun and excitement of paintball, without the pain and mess! Like paintball, you get to play all kinds of different games.

Is Gellyball like NERF?

GellyBall is WAY more fun than Nerf! The only similarity is that you get to shoot ammo.  You aren’t constantly picking ammo up from the ground to reload – the Gel Blaster holds 750 GellyBalls!!  And it shoots 10 GellyBalls per second and accurately shoots up to distances of 100 feet!!!!

Will Gellyballs hurt my yard?

GellyBall beads are non-toxic, non-staining and biodegradable. They are safe for pets, yards and people! They are water-hydrated and will shrink to a tiny size before disintegrating entirely – no mess, no clean-up!

Last Man Standing

Protect the President

There is one starting point on each side. If you get shot anywhere on your body or your mask, you are out. Walk to the referee. When the game is over, the GellyBall teams will switch sides and play again.

Each GellyBall team will set up on their respective side. The goal is to get to the flag in the center and get it to your starting point – without getting shot. If you get shot, drop the flag . It is returned to the center by the referee and you are out. Play until one team wins, then switch sides.

This will be a timed event. Each team will take turns searching for a lost item, while the opposite team hides and defends the item. Whoever has the best time or has the most survivors left at the end of play wins.

Last man or team standing wins. Something like fortnite.

One person is unarmed and has to be lead across the field to other side (and not get shot).

Sharp Shooter | Each person will take turns shooting at targets while being timed. Which team has the best time wins. 

Resurrection | There are two starting points that are opposite of each other. If you get shot, call yourself out and with your gun up, walk to your starting point, touch it and restart! Keep doing that until you are out of ammo.

Top Gun | This game pits one GellyBall player against another one. These two play each other, then winners play winners, until there is only one winner left.
