Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Live the adventure about which Shakespeare could only write with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an all-day paintball pass to Lehigh Valley Paintball, including a gun, mask, air tank, free air refills, and 200 paintballs (up to a $55 total value). Redeem this Groupon at your choice of either Lehigh Valley's Emmaus or Hatfield location.
Lehigh Valley Paintball empowers trigger-fingered artists with both indoor and outdoor canvases—the Emmaus location boasts a spacious, temperature-controlled indoor complex, while the Hatfield branch spans 25 acres of woodsball fields as well as a 10,000-square-foot indoor facility. Strap on a mask and take to the chromatic battlefield of your choice to adroitly dispatch 200 goop-filled globules at your opponents, inspiring proud smiles on the faces of high school art teachers, athletic coaches, and easy-going biology substitutes alike. Hatfield's outdoor arenas test each player's paint-shooting aptitude in diverse terrain, hosting scattered obstacles and bunkers amid lush forestation, and the indoor facilities provide inflatable barriers for quick dodging and cushy mid-battle hugs.
Both of Lehigh Valley Paintball's locations offer open field play on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Hatfield also welcomes players on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend wars at Emmaus run from noon to 8 p.m. Battlefields are fully enclosed with netting, so spectators can safely watch from the sidelines as paintballs hit targets with same the poignant, rainbowtastic verve as a katydid meeting its end while traveling the wrong way down the highway. Call to make a reservation.
