What You'll Get
Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, it's demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $15, you get all-day open play admission, a gun, face mask, and air tank (a $10 value), all-day CO2 or nitrogen (up to a $12 value), and 500 paintballs (a $10 value) at Apocalypse Paintball in Angola, about 40 miles north of Fort Wayne (up to a $32 total value).
Apocalypse Paintball has carved its 37-acre site into four different fields to test the marksmanship and dodgemanship of paintballers in a variety of game types. On the speedball field, teams of three to five paint pugilists take to the air-ball fields for quick five-minute bouts of target practice. The large woods field offers plenty of bunkers for repelling flag capture attempts. In the swamp, however, paint-privates will search in vain for any underbrush to save them from oncoming paint orbs and paint-bear attacks. Perched on top of Bunker Hill, a large castle provides ample fortifications for the defending team to protect itself against the advancing enemy, who have 20 minutes to take the fortress. A ref is always around to make sure players aren't lying about their multicolored badges of courage or mother's maiden names.
