What You'll Get
Paintball is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and both are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Use the battle-vectors of your brain with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two admissions, rental gear, and 200 total paintballs at Ambush Paintball in Surrey (up to a $50 value).
Ambush Paintball sets the stage for mini-dramas of fast-paced, safe, and rainbow-homaging fun. From 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, you and a friend receive all day CO2 refills, a rental mask, a rental gun, and 100 fresh, name-brand paintballs each. With three playing fields to choose from—the action-filled Dirtmound, a 250x200-square-foot "city", and five acres of well-plotted forest with plenty of bushball hidey-holes—this nature's paint preserve keeps players at every level challenged as they point, shoot, and stick tongues out in defiance. The expertly trained staff carefully outlines how-tos on equipment operation, the rules of the game, and safety instructions. After play commences, ally with one tree for cover as shots are aimed at players hiding behind traitor trees. At the city field, giant foam balls valiantly but futilely attempt to blockade frenemies from staining swathes of paint.
At all times, referees dot the field, making sure safety is maintained and starving artists are escorted out. Vegetable oil forms the balls of color-blastin' ammo, so technicolored clothing washes up good as new. The cheerful staff at Ambush can answer questions concerning play or the premises.

About Ambush Paintball
Owned and operated by a cohort of passionate paintball players since 2001, Ambush Paintball's three recreational fields, with a fourth opening May 27th, constantly undergo grooming to ensure their safety and to accommodate new, challenging obstacles. A 200-foot-long tire wall, two-storey clock tower, and 50-foot easel for target practice adorn the massive 450'x250' Ambush City Field, whose square shape and symmetrical layout prevent either team from naming their strategies after famous couture dresses. Meanwhile, two mobile homes, nicknamed the Redneck Fortresses, shelter participants on the Grassy Mounds Field when they're not navigating the trenches and maze-like grassy paths on the outside. More paths abound on the 5-acre diamond-shaped Lost Forest Field, whose tree forts and barricades have hosted as many as 200 players at a time. Elsewhere, a celebrated speedball park hosts a range of guests––from first-timers to pros of the sport––for tournaments every Sunday.
