If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an all-day paintball package at Disruptive Paintball (up to a $54.55 value, including tax). The paintball package includes:
- One all-day pass
- Semiautomatic marker and goggle rental
- Air tank with unlimited refills
- 250 paintballs
Disruptive Paintball's safety-conscious referees fast-paced paintball exchanges across 18 acres of ground and six diverse fields that include recreational and regulation zones. Before taking to the battlegrounds, players strap themselves with a semiautomatic paintball gun, 250 paintballs, and goggles for protecting eyes against impromptu Three Stooges encounters. Deploy to Western Town, a village littered with small buildings, two sniper towers, and a trench that runs the length of the field––or volley paintballs back and forth while taking cover behind the giant wooden spools that occupy the Spool Field. An unholy marriage of recreational games and competitive XBall occurs on the Drum Field, a mirrored arena covered in drums and a hyperball tube snake.
When air tanks run low, players can take advantage of unlimited air refills, and those who choose to bring their own markers receive unlimited CO2 refills that can also be used blow up inflatable paintball partners. Chromatic commandos can purchase additional paintballs at the field ($14 for 250, $17 for 500, $27 for 1,000, and $45 for 2,000).
Across Disruptive Paintball’s six battlefields, teams splatter blotches of color across 18 acres of dry desert landscape. Amidst the shrubs and sparse trees, they slink behind giant wooden spools and up stairs into watchtowers, where they pick off opponents belly crawling up dirt mounds. Players can also post up inside a dilapidated helicopter and various forts or challenge their aim and reflexes on the small speedball court furnished with large inflatable obstacles. Because the center's varied and exciting arena attracts players of virtually every age and skill level—from 7-year-old girls and boys to elderly grandparents—staff members divide participants by skill level to ensure every player has a safe and fun experience. Disruptive Paintball also hosts airsoft nights, a game similar to paintball that uses soft pellets in place of paintballs.
