If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $24, you get entry and rental equipment (a $30 value), plus 500 paintballs (a $15 value), at Cedar Hill Farm Paintball Park in Hernando (a $48.15 total value, including tax).
Cedar Hill Farm Paintball Park arms its guests with a gun, an air tank, a face mask, a 200-round hopper, and 500 rounds of splattering ammunition to defend humanity against the sinister forces of boredom. Sporting seven separate courses over 14 acres of park, Cedar Hill can accommodate large-scale battles and special-forces strikes in the Woods, Ambush, or Bunker Hill courses, and anyone looking for high-frequency action can test their trigger fingers on one of the farm’s speedball courses. Because war has no rules, except for a few necessary ones for safety, battle pacing and game types are left up to the players themselves, though Cedar Hill estimates that players can clean out their clips in two or three hours and are happy to suggest favorite scenarios for squads who’ve come up short.
Designed to appeal to cutthroat tournament players as well as first-timers still moving through finger-paint training, all of Cedar Hill’s match-ups are overseen by an experienced and safety-minded paintball referee. Participants can cut down on their pre-mission briefing times by printing and signing the liability waiver before arriving at Cedar Hill, and additional paintballs are available to players at $15 for 500 blasts of pigment.
