Nestled inside wooded fields and on open plains, Red Leg Action Sports’s three paintball arenas entice competitors to partake in faux combat scenarios. The tree-covered landscape of The Woods arena impedes color-slinging warriors as they seek out potential targets, and The Fort’s seven-room bunker fosters close-quarter forays and postgame tea parties.
Littered with inflatable obstacles, the XBall field challenges opponents to rush from cover to cover under a volley of paint pellets and eliminate rivals before falling prey themselves. Players march to victory garbed in a full face mask and equipped with a paintball marker and 500 rounds, the exact amount needed to replicate the Mona Lisa on a bunker wall.
Red Leg Action Sports
Tractor tires, spools, high wooden walls, and giant pipes sit between trees in the wooded fields of Red Leg Action Sports. To an uninformed passerby, the arrangement may look like a city built by Peter Pan’s lost boys. But to paintball players, the structures provide a network of protection and cover essential to strategy and dodging colorful projectiles. In addition to the facility’s collection of tree-studded fortresses, Red Leg Action Sports also hosts a field with a series of inflatable bunkers ideal for speedball games, capture the flag, and to help players wearing arm floaties blend into their surroundings better.
