Players armed to the teeth duke it out amid massive obstacles and modern amenities in Chicagoland Paintball’s climate-controlled indoor battlefield. Players don a vest and harness before storming the field with an air gun and 500 paintballs, splattering colorful pigment to defeat foes or create abstract-expressionist wall art. Huge obstacles provide cover for cowering members of the opposite team as sharpshooters scour the climate-controlled battledome. Though players can devise master plans on their own, staff members will train first-timers on basic strategies, such as the ever-popular Shoot the Gun. Between rounds, rainbow warriors relax in the WiFi-enabled lounge, or munch on a wide range of energy-boosting concessions (not included in this Groupon).
Friends, family, or codependent squash partners can watch the game unfold from the safety of Chicagoland Paintball’s 360-degree viewing area. After a hard day of painting friends, hose off technicolor wounds in the shower facility to return to the life of a civilian.
Housed inside of an airplane-hanger-like building with a high, A-frame ceiling, Chicagoland Paintball's battleground yields paintballing matches during all seasons. The center suits up players in rental gear before sending them onto the green turf floor to navigate mammoth inflatable X- and barrel-shaped obstacles. After the paint clouds clear, teams can agree to an armistice as they nosh on pepperoni pizzas and slurp down slushies at the onsite snack bar. And in the adjoining lounge, they recharge and recover with free WiFi and cable TV, plus nearby shower facilities that promote cleaner car rides home.
