Paintball combines the philosophies from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War with anecdotes from Jackson Pollock's autobiography, I Will Fight Your Painting. Hone combat aesthetics with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get admission to open play with equipment rental (a $35 value plus tax) and 200 paintballs (a $12 value) at All Star Paintball Arena in Spotswood (a $49 total value).
All Star Paintball Arena provides a 13,500-square-foot indoor playground for paint shooters to unleash their colorful wrath. During open play, two teams of five try their best to stay color-free as flurries of vibrantly hued spheres launch from paintball guns like NASA space shuttles sponsored by Crayola. Trigger-happy Picassos can bob and weave around a full set of 2007 X-Ball bunkers as a pair of all-seeing scoreboards keeps track of the action; teams also have the option of using flags in their matches to play classic games such as capture the flag and duck, duck, flag, goose. After battle, teammates can brag about their Technicolor battle scars while relaxing in front of All Star’s 42-inch plasma television and PlayStation 2.
All Star Paintball Arena
Armed with rental equipment, guests on All Star Paintball Arena's 13,500-square foot indoor field recharge their guns at three self-fill stations in between rounds spent ducking behind inflatables to dodge incoming splatter. Designed by avid players, the year-round field—heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer—hosts matches five days a week along with occasional cash tournaments and even a recent episode of TLC's Cake Boss. Along with its main playing area, All Star Paintball Arena houses on-site refreshments and snacks in case paint alone doesn’t suffice as friend-splattering ammo. To boot, a fully staffed pro-shop stocks an ever-growing inventory of brand-name gear.
