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 $60, you get a paintball package for two at New Breed Paintball in West Milford (a $120 value). The package includes:
- Park admission for two
- Gear rental for two, including a paintball gun, safety mask, hopper, and air tank
- 1,000 paintballs
- Unlimited air fills
New Breed Paintball festoons nine coloring fields with old tires, barrels, heaps of logs, and wall remnants that challenge fleet feet, sharp eyes, and trigger fingers. Players can spend an entire afternoon crawling over rocks and dashing between bunkers with the whiz of paint-filled capsules humming past their ears. A castle field allows paint slingers to study the forces of wind resistance and splatter from a tall turret and within weathered walls.
The fields are located in West Milford next to Camp Ocawasin and are currently open Wednesday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Click here to see photos of fields and paintballers in action. Though the paint washes out of clothes, customers should be sure to dress appropriately—old jeans, T-shirts, and vintage WWII Medals of Honor—and call ahead for reservations and availability.
