What You'll Get
Hanging out amid a flurry of tiny, colorful spheres used to be a pastime reserved for marble-wielding scamps named Alfalfa, Stymie, and Spank-Wheat. Defect from that rascally gang and get a real shooter in hand with today's Groupon: for $25, you get all-day entry, all necessary equipment, limitless air, and 250 paintballs (up to a $50 value) at Paintball Sports Park in Puyallup. For Groupon customers who already own equipment, Paintball Sports Park will provide an additional 250 paintballs (for a total of 500 paintballs) to bridge the value gap. This Groupon is valid Friday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Paintball Sports Park specializes in speedball, a fast-paced, strategy-heavy sport with rotating rounds of approximately 5–7 minutes each. The park's super air fields, a specific breed of speedball battlefields, allow pigmented warriors to attack opponents in areas bunkered by anything from Lego structures to gargantuan letter x’s. Armed with today's all-inclusive package, players suit up with a semi-automatic marker complete with hopper and high-pressure air tank, a full face shield and battle mask, a chest protector (required for all women and/or players under 13), and access to limitless air throughout the day. Should a player paint a Pollock instead of a minimalist landscape, the onsite shop will happily provide additional ammo ($5 for 100 paintballs, $15 for 500).
To ensure overall safety, the pressure of the guns is set at a lower setting than it would be for intermediate or advanced players, allowing heroes as young as 10 years old to participate. Parents, kids, cousins, and coworkers can all unload a few friendly rounds at one another, all in a quest to stay the cleanest at Paintball Sports Park.
Parental waiver required if under 18.

About Paintball Tickets
The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.
