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 $25, you get a one-day paintball adventure for two, which includes two paintball guns, two sets of safety equipment, unlimited compressed air, and 200 paintballs per player at Husker Paintball in Murray (a $50 value). This Groupon must be redeemed on a Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The professional paint slingers at Husker Paintball equip recreational soldiers with the tools and supplies needed to do battle on multiple outdoor fields. Paintball partners frolic freely throughout this exclusively woodsball establishment, which is surrounded by trees, thick foliage, and ambassadors to the paintball afterlife. Sandbag and wood barricades, fallen logs, natural hillsides, and a creek bed yield ample ambush opportunities, and tape lines with flags separate war zones from safe zones. In the spirit of good sportsmanship, nonpartisan referees split up experienced players and beginners to make sure that teams are evenly stacked and everyone enjoys the kerfuffle. After players exhaust initial ammo supplies, warring factions can reinforce trigger-happy troops with additional splatter bullets from Husker's provision depot ($17 for 500 field-grade rounds).
Husker Paintball Adventures
Throughout Husker Paintball Adventures’ rural backcountry speckled with trees and tangled thickets, paintballers explore six battlefields spread across 20 acres and find refuge behind plastic barriers and stacks of timber. After traipsing through creeks and crouching along the low ridges of shallow gullies, players seal their truces with lunch by bringing their grills for a picnic among the spindly trees and garden of organically grown target symbols. In the interest of sportsmanship and making the hobby accessible to everyone, the staff never pits pros against rookies and enforces a 20-foot shooting rule. Safety is also paramount, so they turn down firing velocity on all paintball markers for groups of younger players.
