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 $17, you get a paintball outing at i70 Paintball and Airsoft, located in Huber Heights (a $35 value). The paintball outing includes:
- Field admission for one
- Equipment rental including gun, mask, and ammo belt
- Unlimited CO2 refills
- 500 paintballs
I70 Paintball and Airsoft's friendly staff sends chromatic commandoes on paint-slinging operations across a 10-acre wooded field and fast-paced speedball arena. Before taking to the battlegrounds, each operative receives the proper paintball accoutrements, including a paintball gun, a mask, an ammo belt, 500 paintballs, and protective parachute pants. More than 130 bunkers dot the facility's outdoor zone, leading up to a two-story fort that spans 150 feet of the field's southern border. Close-quarters coloration abounds on the speedball arena with stadium lighting and inflatable barriers, facilitating fast-paced, five-minute matches. When sharpshooters run low on air, they can take advantage of unlimited CO2 refills that can also be used to re-carbonate flat sodas. Every match is supervised by experienced referees and group guides to ensure the safety of all players.
The field is available for open deployment on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Empty-belted players can purchase additional paintballs at $15 for 500 and $45 for 2,000, or stop by the equipment shop to browse guns, masks, and night-vision berets.
Close-combat guerilla paintball matches lob combatants into a woodland field or speedball course for fast-paced war games supervised by trained referees. In the woodsball field, soldiers slide behind some 130 bunkers, ducking under branches and leaping over fallen logs while dodging fire and infiltrating a two-story wooden fort. Referees oversee various forms of gameplay—from standard single or double elimination bouts—to more tactical scenarios such as capture the flag, medic, predator, or marines vs. aliens.
