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 deal: for $22, you get the Assault Package—all-day park pass, all-day CO2 fills, force-feed semi-auto marker, and protective mask ($30)—plus 500 starting paintball rounds ($15) at Fun on the Run Paintball Park (a $45 total value). With tax included, 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 cover across Fun on the Run's multiple obstacle-laden battlefields, including bunker-backed fort fields, gorilla-army-approved natural fields, and high-octane tournament-style fields. Wage colorful war across any of the battlefields throughout your day of open play. If you spend all your spherical ammo decorating one lucky combatant, feel free to fight on by purchasing additional paint at the pro shop (starting at $4.62 for 100 rounds), and if you miraculously spray your name in graffiti on your own shirt, you will be sequestered for study.
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 with all the eats and thirst quenchers you need. While you're at it, toss an adolescent in your picnic basket too, because all curious kids over 10 are welcome to join (children under 18 must have waiver signed by parent). The friendly and knowledgeable refs will make sure everyone plays fair and has fully functioning equipment.
Fun on the Run Paintball Park has 73 overwhelmingly positive reviews on PBReview.com:
- The new fields are great. Woods (with creek and forts) and speed ball are both available. The staff are pretty cool people with years and years of knowledge. It's family run and they care about their players satisfaction and have always been willing to make the player happy, if it's promptly fixing a quick cheapo repair on a players own gun, or swapping one of his rentals out if need be. – PaintballerJay
- Great prices, refs, and courses. There are a ton of courses, I played there for like 3-4 hours and never got through all the courses. – Sean Hanson

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.
