What You'll Get
Playing paintball is a safe, athletic, and deeply tactical way to humiliate your friends, like battle-rapping at the coffee shop or becoming a mime. Take on your friends or soon-to-be frenemies with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one day of paintball, including gear rental and 500 paintballs, at Black River Paintball (a $45 value). This Groupon can be redeemd at either the Fayetteville or Angier location.
Black River Paintball fosters paint-based mock warfare across two enormous outdoor arenas. Devastate the wardrobes of friends and family members with your state-of-the-art paintball gun, high-pressure air tank, and 500 paintballs, then shield yourself from their unified uprising with the included goggles and face mask (equipment rental a $5 value, paintballs a $20 value). Wage games of speedball, woods play, and simulated urban warfare on the 55-acre Farm arena or the nearly 100-acre Freedom field near Fayetteville (field fee a $20 value). Both locations feature multiple field layouts so paintballers can prepare for the impending landshark uprising on all types of terrain. Although the scope of Black River Paintball's offerings lures tournaments of professional paintslingers, recreational and walk-on players are welcomed.

About Black River Paintball
The expert referees and staff at Black River Paintball have hosted games of speedball, woods play, and simulated urban warfare for more than 22 years. The outdoor field—spanning over 85 acres of wooded terrain—is comprised of bunkers, particleboard barriers, and thick patches of undergrowth that serve as ideal spots for players to hunker down after assaults or botched Braveheart monologues. Onsite rental shops arm participants with all necessary equipment including markers, goggles, and paintballs. In addition to walk-on rounds, the facility accommodates players during annual tournaments and scenario games, including themed survival quests based on properties such as G.I. Joe, World of Warcraft, and Harold and the Purple Crayon.
