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 $10, you get a three-hour entry pass, equipment rental, and 200 paintballs at Action Sports Park (a $20 value). Today's deal is valid any day the park is open, but subject to availability. Girls play free on Thursdays.
Both the indoor and outdoor battlefields at Action Sports Park run wet with the paint of fallen heroes, hosting action-packed fun for group get-togethers. Though seasoned soldiers are free to bring their own equipment, Action Sports Park's armory issues new recruits a CO2-powered gun, a mask, and a bag of 200 white paintballs before teams head to the arenas to wage a three-hour war against cleanliness. Indoors, the scattered bunkers provide cover from whizzing paintballs and teammates' Platoon quotes, while the outdoor field affords more running space and fresh air.
Games are always frenzied and are reset frequently, and Action Sports Park limits guns' velocity and rate-of-fire to maintain a level playing field and dissuade guerilla Jackson Pollack tactics. Grab a group of eight or more for special scheduling, including a private field and referee.
Players at NVP Paintball wreak colorful havoc across two speedball courses during weekly skirmishes. A massive indoor arena houses the action during winter months, keeping harsh elements and battle-tested yetis away from combatants as they unload paintballs on nearby frenemies. Padded Turf XL flooring simulates the experience of playing on grass, and an upper-level viewing area gives onlookers an overhead view of every match. On the outdoor field, players duck behind strategically placed inflatable covers stationed on blue astroturf. Between matches, players can retire to the pro shop to peruse new equipment or grease their ammo hoppers with nacho cheese from the snack bar.
