Airsoft is a lot like chess in that both require complex strategizing and are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Forestall the robotic takeover with today’s Groupon to MooseHerd Airsoft in Dickson. Choose between two options:
- For $15, you get one pass for all-day airsoft play (a $30 value).
- For $25, you get one all-day pass, mask, and weapon rental, and 1,000 airsoft BBs (a $50 total value).
MooseHerd Airsoft’s indoor-airsoft facility, called the War Bunker, instigates action-packed combat play and intricate strategy similar to paintball with three detailed battlegrounds spanning 25,000 square feet. The Red Room bathes battles in a powerful vermillion light, adding an otherworldly glow to a room already eerily furnished with old car bodies, stark stone walls, and the ghosts of vengeful shooting-range targets. The Radioactive Room shields snipers with neon-splattered walls, boxes, and barrels that glow fluorescently under a black light, and the Village stages skirmishes in an arena of hollow house frames with windows and doors perfect for surprise attacks.
MooseHerd allows seasoned airsofters to bring their own weapons and digs, but provides novices with 1,000 nonmetallic BB pellets (a $5 value), an airsoft rifle, and a flip-up face mask (a $15 value) to allow for easy war-paint reapplication between shooting sprees. Combatants can purchase up to three Groupons apiece, allowing converts the practice they need to take on both of their doppelgängers at once in an epic but confusing showdown for who has to be the one to go to work on Friday.
With classic replica airsoft guns aimed, teams navigate a 25,000-square-foot indoor battlefield. Within the battlefield's three playing areas, gun-toters conceal themselves behind stacks of tires, stationary vehicles, and small wooden buildings. As combatants slink behind crates and boxes in the shadows, opposing players ferret them out using the light affixed to their weapons and a streaming fire of plastic BBs zipping at speeds up to 375 feet per second. Game play in the radioactive room commences under the glow of black lights that turn the graffiti-laden grounds phosphorescent and opponents' teeth bluer than their songs about battles lost. Adjacent to the battleground, airsoft enthusiasts mingle in the lounge space equipped with a retail shop, party area, and arcade for parties and group events.
