What You'll Get
Paintball is a lot like chess, in that both require complex strategizing and are almost impossible to win against autonomous robots. Stick it to the human element with today's Groupon: for $30, you get six tickets from Paintballtickets.com (a $75 value), a website that offers substantially discounted admission and equipment rental at a number of paintball parks across the country. The tickets provided by today's deal include all-day admission and any necessary rental equipment, and can have a value of up to $40 each, based on admission and equipment rental costs at different locations. Your tickets can be redeemed at any of the following San Jose-area paintball parks (see park websites for individual policies):
- Santa Clara Paintball in San Jose. (A minimum additional purchase of $25 per person is required at the field. This will cover unlimited air, 500 rounds of paintballs, and chest protectors for women and children 13 and under.)
- United States Paintball Nation in Hollister. (A minimum additional purchase of $25 per person is required at the field. This will cover unlimited air and 500 rounds of paintballs. Reservations are required at this location.)
- Sunol Paintball in Sunol. (A minimum additional purchase of $30 per person is required at the field. This will cover one fill of air, 500 rounds of paintballs, and, subject to a limited availability, chest protectors for women and children under 13. Reservations are required at this location.)
A stress-shedding family-friendly sport for splatter soldiers of all types and stripes, paintball grants its combatants the perfect backdrop for one-on-one duels or group-oriented maneuvers. Spread out your tickets over six solo sessions, or round up five friends, coworkers, or NBA starters for a fast-paced adrenaline-fueled jaunt across unique indoor and outdoor terrains that can include pastoral fields and themed villages. Each trek arms guests with a battle mask and goggles, semiautomatic paintball marker, hopper and tanker, and orientation that lays out the rules, safety precautions, and the symbolism behind to Jackson Pollack’s early work.
