Ithaca Paintball's two fields challenge gamers of all ilk to remain paint-free while chasing friends and opponents through and around a variety of obstacles. Two friends or abstract artists can gear up and traipse through the wooded field, using nature's leafy pillars for cover before ducking behind bunkers or climbing through wooden structures placed throughout the adventurous timberland. Aesthetics-minded competitors can turn friends into sprinting Jackson Pollock paintings by dashing after them in the smaller, seven-person speedball field packed with close-range bunkers and designed for harried action. Ithaca Paintball is open year-round, allowing players the chance to pound the sounds of summer out in the key of paintball explosions or leave the snows of winter covered in a kaleidoscope of color.
