If you've always wished that the work of John Woo was more like that of Jackson Pollock, and vice versa, today's Groupon brings you the artfully splattered faux violence that you crave. For $50, you and a friend get entry, rental equipment, unlimited air, and 500 paintballs each at Pev's Paintball, a $108 value. Surprise your sweetie with a Valentine's Day game of hard-to-get that leaves you splattered in the splotchy paint of your complicated love, which thankfully washes out in the laundry. Your Groupon allows you to drop in unannounced on Saturdays and Sundays. You must reserve in advance with a group of 10 or more to play Monday through Friday.
At Pev's, you can fulfill fantasies of expertly evading crossfire as you infiltrate enemy territory and annihilate the opposition faster than you threw your My Buddy doll away after seeing Child's Play. Or just spatter strangers with neon splotches. Pev's Paintball is designed with novices and expert players in mind, so you don't need years of mercenary training or a Blu-ray copy of Blazing Saddles to try it out. The expert referees at Pev's will ensure you have a safe day of warfare and will keep you from going home bitter toward your cheating paintball partner.
Paintball is the perfect opportunity to practice your marine crawl and put your yoga lessons and tireless cross training toward impressing others as you evade crossfire and encroach upon enemy territory. The paintball park's sprawling 48 acres contain 14 playing fields and offer looming towers, rock fields, obstacles, and buildings to duck behind, climb atop, and seek asylum in.
Remember to bring a state-issued ID with you to exchange for equipment rental.
- Each time I go there, I leave... exhausted, but grining [sic] happily and reluctant when the park closes…PEVS is a fun place to go to. The refs are fun to talk with, know the rules, make fair calls… – badger9, PBReview
- This field was worth every mile I travelled during a 4-1/2 hour trip to play at this field. It lived up to everything I have come to expect from the Pev's organization. – 4THDEGREE, PBReview
- [My husband and his co-workers] played on four different fields - rocks, a town, a fort and random buildings and other large items. They had organized games like Capture the Flag and just plain old elimination. – kendall a., Yelp
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.
