Richmond Indoor Paintball enthralls competitive sharpshooters as they show off their sniping and strategic skills on a 25,000-square-foot air-conditioned field. After strapping on a full-covered mask, a tactical vest, and camouflaged jacket and pants to blend in with do-not-enter signs, players load their markers with an unlimited quantity of compressed air and 100 paintballs. Sidle up against graffiti-cluttered walls or crouch behind beat-up old cars as shots fire from the light-aluminum body of a standard BT marker. Gunsmiths can also opt to shield themselves with complimentary kneepads, gloves, and a neck protector, though paintballs beyond the allotted 100 require an additional fee for visitors itching to play longer. Richmond Indoor Paintball accommodates guests from noon to midnight each day except Tuesday, when the facility closes for cleaning and community art-history lectures.
Though Richmond Indoor Paintball sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Richmond Indoor Paintball
Competitive sharpshooters flock to Richmond Indoor Paintball (Best of Groupon 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015); the facility holds the Guinness World Record for the longest paintball game ever played. The reason why is clear: players can live out intricate battle strategies in 25,000 square feet of barricades, abandoned buildings, and streets made to look like a real town. Open year-round, the facility’s graffiti-splattered walls surround the field, and the beat-up old cars littered about offer cover. Players find only premium rental equipment, paintballs, and all elements of play kept feeling as though they were plucked straight from a video game, and the low-impact paintballs they use help minimize the pain of impact. The space accommodates up to 60 guests from noon to midnight each day except Tuesday, when the facility closes for cleaning and community art-history lectures. Click here to view a virtual tour.
