Guests artistically alter each other in cheerful battles across Blitz Paintball’s five distinct battlefields, which fill several acres of varied terrain with obstacles and structures. Color-flecked warriors settle scores with semiautomatic paintball markers while using spools, bunkers, and aircraft to dodge the high-speed brushstrokes of opponents. On the symmetrical hyperball field, teams advance on each other from equal footings, while the spool field offers front-line muralists more than 50 obstacles to navigate or trade to opponents in last-minute treaties. The urban combat arena fills with war cries as vibrant spheres ricochet off houses and buildings as players sheltered by included safety gear sprint across open passages or recline at shaded picnic tables. With a helicopter, bus, and van, the Black Hawk Down field provides a multitude of props for scenario players or amateur engine impersonators, and the fort field’s labyrinthine trailer network equips teams with ample places to hide from perched opponents.
Teammates skirt the abandoned RV, dart through the open door of a downed helicopter, and duck for cover behind a concrete bunker. After a pause, a player stands to check for enemies on the landscape of dusty huts and fences—only to have paint splatter across his chest. On Blitz Paintball's five recreational paintball fields, players immerse themselves in the thrill of paint-based combat through a range of scenarios. The staff designs regularly changing games for each field, including the traditional Capture the Flag or UN treaty signing, and also allows players to create their own styles of play.
Players rent standard semi-automatic, Tippmann A5, or high-end markers, pressurized tanks, and masks, and they prep for combat in a 5,000-square-foot shaded staging area. They're then turned loose to compete on the football-field-size Hyperball field, the Spool field, or themed Urban Combat, The Castle and Military Base fields, upon which elevated fortresses allow players to duck for cover from the aggressive native pigeon population. Projectiles whisper through the air in a two-story, 7,000-square-foot castle, where warriors work their way into an interior courtyard and massive throne room. Two regulation PSP tournament fields host more competitive play with astroturf and padded barriers.
