If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $30, you get all-day open play, upgraded equipment rental, and 500 paintballs (up to a $60 total value) at Lone Wolf Paintball in Mount Clemens. This Groupon is only valid for redemption at the East Field in Mount Clemens. Open-play hours are generally held on weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but customers should call ahead to confirm when open play is available.
Lone Wolf Paintball offers woodsy outdoor paintballing in a number of classic paintballing scenarios such as capture the flag, center flag, and the nearly shelter-less speedball. Take to the East Field for all-day open play, armed with nothing more than rented paintball equipment, 500 rounds of ammo, and a Patton-esque thirst for victory (a $40 value for nonmembers). Included in this deal is an upgraded paintball gun model (a $15 value), featuring a longer barrel for better accuracy, a double trigger, and a more efficient paint-loading hopper. Lone Wolf Paintball guests will also get a two-pack pouch (a $5 value) for extra storage of pigment pellets. Once you’ve exhausted your initial cache of 500 color-bullets by going “all Pollock-like” on the chest of an unworthy opponent, you can purchase additional paintballs ($7/100 rounds, $20/500 rounds, and $35/1,000 rounds for nonmembers).
Crawl on your belly over rocks and dash between bunkers with the whiz of small paint-filled capsules humming past your ears; then open fire as you tuck, roll, and shout in slow motion, all while your enemies, best friends, or coworkers are decimated in a splatter of color. First-time paintballers can tap into Lone Wolf Paintball’s staff’s introductory advice and peruse the game’s rules and strategies in preparation for their entrance into the coliseum of tornado-speed, Technicolor-tinged tag.
Lone Wolf Paintball
Initially conceived of in 1987 as a way for an avid paintball player and his friends to acquire discounted merchandise, Lone Wolf Paintball swiftly evolved into a multi-location business throughout Michigan. One year after opening, Bristol Apple Orchard in Almont accommodated the budding business with its first playing field. These days, an indoor field allows for year-round paintball. The 20,000 sq. ft. facility encompasses a speedball field with artificial turf, which spectators can observe from viewing areas including a second-story observation deck. Referees ensure that each player competes safely.
