Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $17, you get admission, gear rental, and 500 rounds of ammunition at 280 Paintball (a $35 value). Palette-popping marksmen can avoid inclement weather and attacks from guerilla rose bushes in the simulated post-industrial wasteland of 280 Paintball's 20,000-square-foot indoor space. Quartermaster staffers outfit each player with a semi-automatic marker, mask, air tank, and 500 rounds of ammunition before taking the field for elimination play, leaving sharpshooters to snipe newly found foes or compose insulting paint-splatter sonnets on the backs of enemy poets. All games are accommodated with staff members who oversee and regulate on-field action.
Six PBreview.com reviewers have this to say about 280 Paintball:
At 280 Paintball, players who can combine speed and stealth will prove most formidable on the indoor and outdoor battlefields. Bracketed by towering trees, the outdoor theatre fills a field with wooden spindles, massive drums, and small platforms, favoring those who can turn the obstacles to their tactical advantage. Inside, splotches of paint blot the red and blue cover bags that serve as shelter for retreating platoons to hide from ambushes or pause to glue festive glitter onto their markers. 280 Paintball hands out both traditional and smaller, .50-caliber paintballs, which hit their mark with less impact and are a favorable alternative for young paintball warriors.
