What You'll Get
For $30, today’s Groupon gets you an indoor paintball experience for two (a $60 value) at Paintball Action Games, located on 90 Avenue.
One of the largest indoor fields in Edmonton, Paintball Action Games pits players against each other in a 15,750-square-foot playing area. The two-player package bestows field admission, as well as 200 PMI paintballs and full gear, upon each warrior, including markers with CO2 canisters, goggles, and head-protection systems. From the referee's signal call of "Game on!" or "Long live pointillism!", each usually 20-minute indoor game smashes open a window for competitors to capture the opposing team's flag in between running for cover on the nonslip floor and ducking behind large padded walls, mounds, and logs.
More than 200 scrappers can exchange biodegradable, washable fire in general-admission walk-on games, in which referees assign teams and generally place contenders with others of their skill level and blood type. A large mezzanine and two levels of viewing areas allow marked players to keep an eye on their teammates' progress. Participants must attend a safety-and-rules orientation before converging on the Airball field's constantly changing terrain.

About Paintball Action Games
Paintball Action Games' 18,000-square-foot facility accommodates players aged 10 and older, who shield themselves in coveralls and goggles for indoor games. Participants race across the tournament field, dodging paintballs as they crouch behind inflatables and aim their semi-auto markers at unsuspecting opponents. In between bouts, a pro shop with certified techs helps visitors stock up on markers, apparel, and accessories such as the same pellets Michelangelo used to paint the Sistine Chapel. Meanwhile, the picnic area hosts guests after their contests, where they can grill up on a feast on barbecues.
