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 $40, you get a pass for two players for a four-hour session (a $22.99 value/person; a $45.98 value), 1,000 paintballs (a $35 value), and lunch for two (an $8 value) at Official Paintball Games of Texas in Forney (a $96.32 total value, including tax).
As one of the largest paintball parks in Texas, Official Paintball Games of Texas boasts more than 56 acres of battlefield. The first-strike package comes with free air refills, a semi-auto marker, and a safety mask. Twelve meticulously designed playing fields await the paint infantry, with scenarios designed to replicate famous scenes of mayhem. The Cyberball has a mirrored layout, 40-foot-tall netting, and a sneaky snake bunker for staking out and hiding while composing a Tweet. The Tora Bora field transports musketeers to an Allied base deep in the heart of World War II enemy territory, pitting platoons of paintballers against flankers who take no prisoners. Between battles, recruits refill their gullets on rations of hot dogs or nachos, chased with a canteen of cola and a bag of chips, before embarking on another tour of duty through camouflaged wood fields and Seurated fortresses.
Official Paintball Games of Texas
Through the haze of orange smoke bombs, a paintballer sets his sights on an opponent hiding behind a gutted helicopter before taking on others in a fort, leaving its wooden slats with freshly glistening paintball splatter. On more than 56 acres of varying terrain comprising 12 courses, players such as these negotiate the wooded ghost town of West World, the bombed-out automobiles of Black Hawk Down, or the fenced-in speedball court populated with large, inflatable obstacles. Throughout the imaginative battlefields, paintballers slink through elevated lookouts or cross streams over platform bridges and weave through forests while trying out their best tree imitations. The fields also play host to tournaments and a variety of themed games and can be booked for bachelor parties, youth-group events, and corporate team-building outings.
