What You'll Get
Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Stage your own tragically awesome event with today's Groupon: for $16, you get three hours of paintball for two with equipment and 100 rounds each at Fun On The Run Paintball Park (a $43.28 value). This Groupon is geared to go for an all-day war during open-play hours—Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Roll, sprint, duck, and wage colorful war across Fun On The Run's multiple obstacle-laden battlefields, which feature forts, wooded areas, and wide-open, high-action fields. Depending on their trigger finger's itch levels, 100 rounds of paint may last players anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, but should they spend all their spherical ammo decorating one lucky combatant, dye daredevils can feel free to fight on by purchasing additional paint at the pro shop (starting at $4.62 for 100 paintballs; not covered by today’s Groupon). Protective gear and a splatter-blasting marker are included, as are CO2 refills, allowing visitors to save their home fire extinguishers for their intended use of fending off blob attacks.
Beyond being a premium pigment-pumping play land, Fun On The Run also encourages guests to spend the day in comfort. Feel free to tote along a cooler filed with eats and thirst quenchers. While you're at it, toss an adolescent in your picnic basket too, because all curious kids ages 10 and older are welcome to join in the frescoing festivities (children younger than 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent). In addition to providing the means to chromatic mirth, Fun On The Run’s friendly and knowledgeable refs will make sure everyone plays fair and has fully functioning equipment throughout the day.

About Fun On The Run Paintball Park
From the top of a two-level fort, the sniper surveys the grounds below, where opponents lurk behind mounds and ready their semiautomatic markers from within two school buses. Those props, which adorn The West Lot, are among the many obstacles and barriers littering the 10 courses at Fun On The Run Paintball Park. Guests can duck behind army jeeps at The Fuel Depot, navigate The District's maze-style village, and storm the 15-foot, two-story castle, whose 3,000 square feet accommodates battling participants and court jesters performing medieval USO shows. Meanwhile, teams prepare for forthcoming competitions on three grass-turf tournament fields in the park's 3-acre training facility.
Elsewhere in the park, players wield paintball markers equipped with laser light beams during outdoor hide-and-go-seek laser-tag games. On the Airsoft field, participants use teamwork and squad tactics to win matches on an outdoor field with woodsy terrain. Each realistic Airsoft rifle fires small, plastic BBs that are biodegradable and won't injure players.
