Zombies tap into humanity's two greatest human fears: wandering aimlessly through life among the equally forsaken masses, and fire. Run away with this Groupon.
$34 for Entry Into the Blood and Guts Run ($69 Value)
At the starting line of the Blood and Guts Run, you stare down a hoard of zombies. They creep closer, and you start to run. You sidestep a nearby monster and escape the pack of undead creatures, but reprieve is still a long way off. Five kilometers stand between you and the end of the zombie apocalypse. Along the way, you dodge foam projectiles and conquer obstacles from balance beams, to tunnels, to climbing walls. When you finally cross the finish line, the event's staffers reward you with a custom T-shirt and medal.
The Blood and Guts Run takes place Sunday, November 4. Races begin at 7 a.m. and start every half hour until 5 p.m. Participants can stick around after their race to enjoy music and entertainment.
When Mike "Pev" Peverill’s teamed up with his brother Todd to build Pev's Paintball from the ground up, his driving force was to grant guests the chance to test their sense of strategy and adventure. This goal is achieved each day on his park's 48 acres of land boasting 16 different themed playing fields dappled with huts, log stacks, and other obstacles. The park is open to paintballers of all skill levels, and all customers receive an orderly safety briefing before they begin play, much like the gentlemanly crumpet and tea parties that prefaced each battle in the Revolutionary War.
Additionally, to ensure that grumbling stomachs don’t give away hiding spots during paint-slinging battles, Pev’s offers a fully stocked and licensed onsite concession offers sustenance for battle-weary players.
