Paintball, like chess, requires strategic forethought and enough camouflage to remain invisible to opponents. Hone your sight subversion with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get one admission, one rental package with equipment, and 200 paintballs at North Shore Paintball in North Vancouver (a $40 value).
North Shore Paintball encompasses a sprawling 3-acre paintball field flush with trees, paint-splattered walls, and towering stacks of rubber tires. Paintball pros outfit acrylic gunners with nontoxic vegetable-based ammo and semiautomatic Tippmann 98 paintball guns equipped with tanks of CO2. Meanwhile, goggles and masks shield heads as they creep up hills and cower behind heaping sandbags during rainy, snowy, and sunny conditions. Bevies of multicoloured balls fly overhead in games of team elimination, attack and defend, capture the flag, and quick-draw portrait painting. Once out of their allotted ammo, paint pelters can purchase additional paintballs from North Shore's store. Overalls are also available subject to availability.
