Paint-flinging warriors wage war over 29 battlefield objects on Low Country Paintball's vast wooded field, or duck and cover in a fast-paced speedball arena. After donning protective gear, players test their mettle by playing chicken with trees and battling through the thickets and fields of the wooded battleground. Paint flies as participants complete strategic objectives such as protecting a castle, broken-down tank, or vitally important bridge. Action-oriented fighters also romp across the open PSP field, with inflatable bunkers and obstacles to block lines of fire. Sharpshooters can extend the adrenaline-pumping fun by purchasing 2,000 additional paintballs ($50) and extra air for their marker ($10), or reenacting the war of 1812 right down to the exciting courtroom legislation proceedings.
Low Country Paintball
Owners William and Paula Smith arm players with Spyder or Tippmann markers before they trek across bridges, sneak through the trees, and dodge incoming fire from behind a cluster of barrels on Low Country Paintball’s wooded field. The staff has decorated its massive course with obstacles and barriers such as an upturned rowboat and a rusty old truck. Elsewhere on the 63-acre facility, staff members oversee participants who weave through the speedball field’s bounty of blue inflatables. In addition to open-play sessions, Low Country Paintball hosts frequent games and events through its LCP Scenario branch, including bouts themed after famous battles such as the Thumb War of 1812.
