As a conglomerate of paintball facilities, Paintball International is a one-stop shop for weekend warriors seeking some chromatic outdoor combat. Partnering with fields across the country, the company helps players live out their battlefield fantasies, whether they're sneaking up on an enemy installation, executing tactic strategies, or painting Water Lilies on the chest of a charging opponent.
Owner Dewayne Convirs concocted a vision of an action wonderland, plugged that vision into an amplifier of ambition and excitement, then cranked that knob up to 12 and blew out the walls for the authentic outdoor sharpshooting experience that is D-Day Adventure Park. Home to “Oklahoma D-Day,” called the world’s largest paintball event, D-Day Adventure Park provides heat packers with 100 acres of rampant rapid-fire terrain. Grab a platoon of roughnecks and polychromatically plow down an infantry of musketeers with washable paint across painstakingly crafted battlefields designed to resemble famous raids and historical conflicts. Armed with a D-Day-supplied gun, protective mask, 200 paintballs, and one hopper full of high-powered air, agile assassins can take to the field for a full day of score settling and foliage redecorating. D-Day Adventure Park also provides free camping and showers for guests. This Groupon is valid Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Beneath towering trees, paintballs and laser beams soar across Bill’s Extreme Paintball and Laser Tag’s 2-acre outdoor arena. Tippmann 98 quality markers and masks arm paintball players as they scale sniper towers and dive into hideouts, while professional-grade laser-tag guns allow future hair-removal experts to shoot lasers up to 700 feet. Vigilant referees stave off tomfoolery during matches, and picnic tables scattered around the facility provide platforms for snacks or birthday feasting. Bill's can also tote equipment to a customer’s chosen venue, allowing a partygoer to host a game in their own backyard, local park, or favorite alderman's office.
At Doennig Sport Swings and Ozark Paintball, the theme is "go big." This slogan is apt, since kids and parents sway and soar atop mammoth Sport Swings and navigate giant obstacle courses. In between, they race each other in a bungee run or hop into large inflatable bounce houses to joust and box with oversized gloves before boarding a bus shaped like a log cabin called the "Hillmobilly" for a one-of-a-kind hayride. Also blanketing the park is a paintball field filled with wood-slat bridges, timber watchtowers, tunnels, trenches and plenty of thick brush to camouflage players. After a day's worth of colossal attractions, groups can wind down around camp-like bonfires with hot dogs, s'mores, and other scorchable treats in hand.
