Unlike plants—which convert carbon dioxide into oxygen that is freely distributed to one's enemies—paintball guns convert carbon dioxide into sweet, colorful vengeance. Seek decompression with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a paintball package for two at Paintball Explosion in East Dundee (a $91 total value).

The package includes the following:

  • Two all-day admissions (a $36 value)
  • Two sets of goggles & two rental markers (a $30 value)
  • 500 paintballs to be shared by both players (a $25 value)

This Groupon is valid during open-play sessions on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekday sessions are sometimes available—see Paintball's website for details.

Paintball Explosion’s eight fields challenge pigment-slinging players with diverse obstacles and game types during all-day open-play sessions. Upon entry, each competitor straps on a pair of protective goggles, then charges into the fray gripping a rented Tippmann 98 Platinum Series marker and a teddy bear for good luck. Lock and load 500 paintballs and march to Code Black Field, a concrete jungle of bunkers with wide spaces between cover, or deploy units to Turmoil Field, a wooded battlefront of defunct vehicles and claustrophobic buildings. Or, evade enemies with slides, rolls, and inscrutable hand signals in the competitive, tournament-specified Indoor Speedball Field, pausing only to refresh canisters with unlimited air refills or to help remove paint from a competitor's mustache.

Parents and friends of participants can connect to the park-wide WiFi to keep tabs on the conflict zones through a closed-circuit video feed. In between rounds, foot soldiers can scrub down in three locker rooms equipped with showers, or crawl inside potato-chip bunkers to banish hunger at the snack bar.

Paintball Explosion

Paintball Explosion began when a group of paintball fanatics decided to make their dreams a reality and set about designing eight different fields of movie-set quality. Located just a 40-minute drive outside of Chicago, the real-life fantasy land they created includes the sci-fi-inspired, concrete environs of Code Black Field as well as the abandoned amusement-park setting of Biohazard Field.

The expansive facility also sports indoor and outdoor speedball fields for adrenaline-fueled fastness. Between matches, gamers can prepare at heated buildings with locker rooms and showers. With an onsite sports bar and grill, Paintball Explosion makes the paintball haven a place where enthusiasts can discuss the forces of velocity, wind resistance, and the physics of splatter.
