Providence Indoor Paintball, LLC's indoor field gives it distinct advantages over traditional outdoor spots. For one, paintball matches can continue well into the evening, with most nights' events carrying on until 10 p.m. Paintballers face less variables and weather problems, making for straightforward skill-based matches in a large facility loaded with inflatable obstacles. Tournament-style and rec-ball games welcome newcomers and experienced players alike. Those who prefer outdoor competition can take advantage of the facility's new alfresco field, which is open for the spring season, weather permitting.
Tom and his son Matt started playing paintball with their friends on a 23-acre field in the woods. Now the location of Matt's Outback Paintball, that field is equipped with four multiple-story forts and supplemented by X-ball fields, a tire field, and a seven-man speedball field for paintball games.
Clusters of forts and bunkers stretch for 30 acres on the playing fields of WarZone Paintball & Airsoft. WarZone's massive layout gives players ample room to plot sneak attacks from behind barrels or lead epic charges from the trenches, across fields, or up hill-top fortresses. With a village, multiple forts, trenches and more, WarZone is suited for groups big or small.
Rhode Island Paintball & Airsoft owner George Zervas created WarZone with Jeff Stein, the founder of the professional paintball team the New England Hurricanes.
BattlegroundZ facilitates recreational combat with an indoor compound designed to accommodate games of paintball, airsoft, and laser tag. At BattlegroundZ’s indoor paintball facility, masked and visored shooters safely bombard each other with reusable silicone balls while negotiating 10,000 square feet of treacherous halls and repositionable obstacles. Depending on the particular skirmish, joyful gangs of up to 35 paintballers strive to accomplish a variety of objectives, from pelting other players to capturing an opposing team’s flag or tricking rivals into designing a flag with clashing colors.
Split into two rooms, the 4,000-square-foot laser-tag arena lets combatants take cover behind phosphorescent partitions as they take aim at enemies clad in illuminated vests. BattlegroundZ also hosts airsoft competitions in which players dodge BBs while attempting to accomplish tactical objectives. Before games, weapons are tested to ensure they do not fire pellets faster than 270 and 350 feet-per-second, so their impact feels less like a blow to the body and more like a raspberry to the soul.
As a conglomerate of paintball facilities, Paintball International offers many distinct destinations for chromatic outdoor combat. Some fields, such as Splat Zone Paintball in Louisiana, challenge players to find adequate cover in an arena littered with creative obstacles. In Massachusetts, PnL Paintball thrusts players into a realistic Ghost Town, comprised of churches, multilevel buildings, and stone walls. Meanwhile, trees, leaves, stacked wood, and foliage inside K.C. Crusaders offer players all-natural hiding places from which they can spring forth to surprise their rivals or remain undetected while they determine the color palette they will use to paint Water Lilies on the surrounding bunkers.
Strategy is the hallmark of Citadel Airsoft & Gaming, whether plans of action unfold on a tabletop or the battlefield. Indoor airsoft matches pit players armed with pellet guns against one another in various modes of play, including team death match and capture the flag. More than 5,000 square feet of the facility are devoted to tables, which are used for hosting large events for games such as Magic: The Gathering and Star Wars X-Wing.
