Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a full day of field access, all needed rental gear, and 100 paintballs at Off Limits Paint-ball (a $25 value).
At Off Limits Paintball, combatants pelt one another with vivid hues as trained officials preside over a 12-field, 50-acre expanse. Before taking the field, competitors outfit themselves with an included mask, gun, CO2, 100 paintballs, and a brief lesson in abstract expressionist tech-niques. Game sessions rotate across fields, with areas including a 10,000-square-foot indoor facility, the tubular barricades of Pipe Dreams, and the privately designed, 007-approved Thunderball. Fresh water on every field keeps trigger ticklers hydrated, while complimentary dressing rooms and showers help wash away remnants of paint and shame from playing dead all day. Fuel up at the course’s concession stand with pizza, hot dogs, candy, nachos, and beverages, then defeat opponents by exe-cuting a surprise midmeal combat roll. Off Limits is a field-paint-only facility, and customers can purchase extra paint ($5 for 100; $20 for 500) on-site.
