What You'll Get
Paintball fights are the best way to surround bodies with tiny, colorful spheres, beating out naps in ball pits and taping marbles to pants. Take aim at a less sticky pastime with today’s Groupon to Apocalypse Paintball in Poynette. Choose between two options:
- For $11, you get a paintball field pass, walk-on paint fee, and one free air or CO2 fill (a $22 value).

Apocalypse Paintball's seasoned snipers hone tactical know-how during fast-paced days of enemy elimination, territory infiltration, and neon-splattered sharpshooting. Novices strap on an array of provided gear, including masks, goggles, and a Tippmann 98 semiautomatic paintball gun, and paintball veterans can bring equipment from home to ensure precise fit and accurate marksmanship. Stalking through one of 15 diverse paintball fields, commandos trail unwary prey into forest undergrowth, snipe approaching hostiles from a WWI-inspired trench and tower complex, or add new shades to masterpieces in Apocalypse’s replica of the Louvre.
While Apocalypse Paintball suggests reservations, it also offers convenient walk-on hours for solo players. During firefights, members of Apocalypse’s fun-loving paint platoon stay on hand to referee combat, troubleshoot equipment problems, and recruit promising talent for Wisconsin’s paintball militia. Participants younger than 18 must have parent’s permission to paintball, and all patrons must sign a liability waiver.

About Apocalypse Paintball
Two teams of gunmen disperse across the tower field, some marksmen ducking for cover in the World War II–style bunkers constructed of railroad ties, others seeking protection inside the field's two-story pillboxes. Silently holding their positions, the players feel a hush fall over the field as they wait to see which side will make the first move in their battle to take the central, three-story tower. As they sit frozen behind their barricades, an excruciating hush envelops each one until it seems they're each alone on the territory. And then someone sprints toward the tower.
Apocalypse Paintball spans 50 acres of playing grounds, encompassing 15 current and upcoming fields that range from two speedball courses to a 40,000-square-foot castle. Coordinating both walk-on and private play, Apocalypse's staff maintains active, challenging bouts through organized games such as capture the flag and downed pilot. Between competitions, a fire pit, grills, and a large picnic area invite players to recuperate and exchange stories of catching incoming fire with their bare hands.
