If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so exciting that no one would mind. Experience your own paint-covered battlefield with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an all-day paintball package, including equipment rental and 200 rounds of paint, at Paintball Plex, located in Laotto (a $35 value).
Paintball Plex invites players to sharpen their sniping skills on more than 12 acres of paint-splattered battlefields. The all-day paintball package arms competitive trigger-painters with a Tippmann semiautomatic gun, mask, unlimited air, and 200 rounds of aesthetic ammunition. Engage in heated combat on the outdoor World War II scenario mounds field, which features foxholes, tunnels, and bunkers. Exchange feverish fire on a speedball field that provides perfect footing and inflatable objects that provide cover from artistic onslaughts. The 38,000-square-foot indoor arena eliminates elemental obstacles and provides cover from monochromatic-loving gray squirrels.
The 3,000-square-foot pro shop boasts one of the world’s largest selections of used paintball guns and gear, allowing players to add to their equipment caches. This Groupon is valid on Saturday and Sunday during open play from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
If you've never been paintballing before, there's nothing more terrifying than seeing an extremely coordinated teenager with dozens of games under his belt sprinting toward you with a raised paintball gun. But that's not really a problem at Paintball Plex. The staff is careful to put players on teams that have the same amount of experience, ensuring that beginners play with other beginners instead of advanced snipers.
Colorful clashes unfold on outdoor speedball, hyperball, and scenario fields, including a two-acre WWII-style scenario field filled with foxholes, 2,000 sandbags, and a series of mazes and tunnels. These outdoor fields are open from spring through fall. When winter chills settle on the area, games move inside to Paintball Plex's 38,000-square-foot indoor field, where players duck behind giant inflatables while spectators look on from the viewing area. Players can use Paintball Plex's Tippmann semiautomatic guns or purchase their own gear inside the 3,000-square-foot pro shop.
