If you've always wished the work of John Woo was more like that of Jackson Pollock and vice versa, paintball may be the answer to your oddly specific artistic fantasies. For $25, today's Groupon gets you admission, a goggles-and-mask system, paint-gun rental, initial CO2 air fill, and 500 paintballs at Cousins Paintball (a $50 value). You can choose between all-day admission on an open field or three hours on a private field for groups of 10 or more.
At Cousins, you and your friends get to dress up like G.I. Joes and reenact Korean Conflict battle scenarios. Go all Hoth on your friends with a battle in the midst of winter, or slip through spring greenery in floral-print camo, moving as stealthily as a postal worker on an extended lunch break.
With the option to upgrade to a private field for groups of 10 or more, celebrate everything from bachelor parties and corporate outings to bar mitzvahs and successful dental cleanings. If you have no good excuse to do battle, Cousins has a calendar full of its own full-on wars and more. Just give Cousins your Groupon and 48 hours' notice, and you'll get to run around in the biggest backyard in town.
Cousins Paintball's Long Island location has gotten mostly positive reviews from paint-splattered ballers at PBReview.com:
- Cousins at Coram NY is my favorite [paintball venue] so far...Most fields at Cousins are big enough so you don't get taken out by 10 paintballs at the same time right away when referee blows his whistle to start a game and that's a plus IMO... – Xmarkerman
- What I was most impressed with was the number of refs and how engaged they were during the games. It appeared that they were right on the spot of any activity and ready to call out hits. Very little wiping which I can't stand. – Dr. K
