During a game of paintball, players eliminate opponents by shooting them with gelatin capsules, much like how museum curators determine which art pieces to remove from an exhibit. Take a direct shot with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a three-hour paintball package for two at Eastie Boyz Paintball (a $100 total value). The package includes the following for each person:
- Admission, mask, gun, and air (a $30 value)
- 100 paintballs (a $15 value)<p>
Eastie Boyz Paintball arms sharpshooters with multicoloured ammunition for three-hour sessions of competitive play in its indoor arena. After shielding themselves in masks, participants inundate guns with air and 100 paintballs before attending a thorough safety briefing preceding each session. Players can roam the cushioned AstroTurf field and strategically position themselves behind myriad inflatable bunkers arranged into a challenging layout and ineffective baseball field. Referees oversee each snipe and elimination while ensuring that partakers of comparable skill face off. The staging area’s main room and bleachers grant guests a plethora of angles from which to view each shot, and a vending machine dispenses treats for pre-game sugar highs and post-game surrenders. Individuals or a group of friends who bring in five Groupons can also call ahead to reserve a private game for 10 people.
Eastie Boyz Paintball
The inflatable bunkers that dot Eastie Boyz Paintball’s indoor field are pocked with the runny splatters of past skirmishes. As players step onto the AstroTurf battlefield, bright lights and defensive bunkers simulate the conditions of an outdoor playing field without threats of rain, snow, or squirrel commandos. Players outfitted with rental markers or their own equipment prepare for competition in the staging area or cheer on other teams from the viewing area. An onsite pro shop also lets players purchase additional paintballs or upgrade their markers and air systems.
