A trip to the paintball field is the only way to treat an itchy trigger finger, outside of expensive rash creams or firing a water gun carved from a cactus. Scratch the itch for vengeance with this Groupon.
$20 for an All-Day Paintball Outing with Marker, Safety Gear, and 500 Paintballs ($39.99 Value)
Three recreational fields sprawling across 75 acres sport large teams of paintballers as they vie for control of battlefield objectives such as wrecked tanks, broken-down houses, or a large castle. Games go nonstop with minimal breaks between every two sessions, and Extreme Paintball outfits each player with a Tippmann 98 marker, safety gear, and 500 paintballs.
Jim, the owner and operator of Extreme Paintball, bought his first paintball marker––a Nelspot 007––more than 20 years ago. Shortly after discovering his passion, he toured the country on a National Professional Paintball League team, retiring after 11 years to open Extreme Paintball. Nowadays, Jim and his staff work to introduce new players to his preferred method of paintball: woodsball. Contrasting with bunker-based speedball, woodsball is played in the natural outdoors, such as in the woods or at the bottom of the ocean.
At Extreme Paintball, Jim's three vast courses are designed around different scenarios with thematic obstacles scattered throughout to enhance the experience. The tank course carries the scars of war as crashed planes and the wrecked husks of tanks litter the battlefield, and the Vietnam course is shrouded in the area's densest foliage, finally making use of all the artificial trees populating the region. Jim's team rotates the courses throughout the year to preserve the environment and create an ever-changing battlefield.
