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 $10, you get four hours of paintball admission, a paintball gun and mask rental, and all-day CO2 (a $20 value) at Apocalypse Games in Angola, about 40 miles north of Fort Wayne. Paintballs are not included in this Groupon, but can be purchased on-site (bags of 500 start at $10). If you bring your own paintball gun and paint, this Groupon is valid for two rounds of play.
Apocalypse Games 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. Call ahead to check availability.
All players must sign waiver; players under age 18 require a parent signature. Players must be at least 10 years old.
PBReviewers recommend Apocalypse Games:
- The paint was really cheap. The players were friendly. The field was great the turn around was great (we played forest and castle like 8 times each). The refs were polite and very understanding. Overall I'd give it a 10 even after going to several different fields. – Semperfidelis
- This is a great field. You have access to a wooded area used for capture the flag, a speed ball course, a castle and field, and a swamp which is also used for speed ball. The staff is very friendly. – oberon500000
