Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end, everyone has pretend-died. Arm yourself against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an all-day-play pass, equipment rental, unlimited air, 500 paintballs, lunch, and one bottled beverage at BlitZkrieg Paintball (a $63.15 value).
BlitZkrieg Paintball's paint-splattered premises encompass four different fields and one jungle-play area, giving Technicolor warriors of all skill levels plenty of space in which to engage in their good-natured skirmishes. To ensure no actual wars are started or art accidentally made, BlitZkrieg pros set fighters straight with a pre-combat safety briefing and outfit them with a facemask, vest, paintball gun, two ammo pods, bottled beverage, and pizza or philly cheesesteak. From there, warriors bombard the enemy with a rain of color on one of four fully lighted outdoor courses. Thickets of overgrown bushes, inflatables, and butter busts of Civil War generals conceal combatants on the open grassland battlefield soaked in Monet-like pastels.
Within the tight-quartered confines of the two outdoor speedball fields, paintballers duck and dive behind inflatable obstacles and blanket the opposition in one of 10 different paints such as Marballizer. When players desire a more methodical game, they advance on Blitzkrieg's three woodsball fields. During woodsball play, teams slink through narrow paths lined with dense green shrubbery, using trees for cover. Amid the jungle-like environment, combatants chuck paint grenades at distant enemies and plant paint mines in strategic locations that explode in geysers of pigment. Once everyone's clothing is coated in abstract art, teams can come to a truce over pizza, philly cheesesteaks, hotdogs, and the fact that everyone's veins pumps the same blue paint.
