If the Hundred Years War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colourful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission, gear rental, and 150 paintballs at Ground Zero Paintball in Gananoque (a $28.25 value).
Ground Zero Paintball provokes the most colourful of warfare on its more than 200 acres of land and plays host to teams of dedicated paintball warriors. War games meet high-velocity paint tag in this action-packed test of strategy, stamina, and human-tree blending in which players aged 10 and older compete for the cleanest victory on a variety of fields such as XBall, a fortress, and woods warfare. Collect gear if need be, then proceed to belly-crawl over rocks and dash between bunkers as small paint-filled capsules hum past; then open fire, tucking, rolling, and shouting in slow motion, as enemies, best friends, or coworkers are decimated in a splatter of colour. Ground Zero fosters safe, challenging play, marshalling fairness-fixated referees to remedy wrongful hits and 20-foot-high netting to prevent stray splats from mussing spectators on the five voyeur-friendly fields. In between deploying secret missions appropriately named after Top Gun characters, battlers can heat up competitive spirits at Ground Zero’s grill-laden covered picnic areas.
