What You'll Get
Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a half-day field pass, equipment, and 500 paintballs at GTF Paintball in Yulee (up to a $45 value).
GTF Paintball drops guests into the middle of a multihued blitzkrieg, challenging combatants to paint-pellet warfare across six different playing fields in a safe, controlled arena. After donning the provided mask, guests take up arms for a half day (9 a.m.–1 p.m. or 2 p.m.–6 p.m.) of bunker diving and flanking patterns, unloading neighborly rounds in the Houses’ suburban dystopia or staging a forested assault with the help of the Bus field's wooded cover spots, two trench systems, and owl-shaped smoke grenades. Spectators observe the chromatic firefights from the netted safety of GTF’s well-kempt staging area, and roving referees lay down the laws of sportsmanship throughout each match. While today’s Groupon includes 500 rounds of ammunition, additional paintballs ($15 for 500) can be purchased for cold hard cash or traded for the passports of captured enemies.
While GTF Paintball occasionally offers discounted rates to military personnel and other service members, this deal still presents the best value for most buyers.

About GTF Paintball
Wooded areas filled with abandoned automobiles, empty houses, and overturned barrels might evoke the set of a gritty war movie, except for one detail: they’re all covered in colorful splotches. These are some of the sights on the six unique fields at GTF Paintball, which host colorful mock battles on their expansive outdoor property. Whether participants stage urban combat on The Houses, or take to The Village to engage in fast-paced rounds, they can lose themselves in settings that simulate both real-life battle and pranks played by expressionist painters. No matter what the scenario, GTF places an emphasis on safety by chronographing markers and requiring goggles in all playing areas.
