If the Dadaists had owned a projectile device for spewing color across cardboard canvases, the most renowned modern artists would be paintballers. Craft a masterpiece with today's Groupon: for $25, you get all-day entry, including equipment, unlimited air, and 200 paintballs at Midway Paintball Facility in Vacaville (a $50 value), open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Additional paintballs can be purchased on-site ($20 for 500; $35 for 1,000).
Midway Paintball Facility’s kaleidoscopic arena contains six paint-by-numbers war zones designed for ducking, dodging, and hiding from the wrath of safety-minded paintballs picked from paintball bushes. Players can choose a themed field and hide behind a spread of obstacles as they and their rented shooters scurry to pepper the clothing of their opponents with various hues. This Groupon includes a jersey, rental gun, tank, and hopper, as well as safety goggles and chest protector to keep sacred amulets and clingy pet sloths safe. Midway Paintball Facility's fields are governed by judicious referees, who keep the high-velocity arts and crafts safe, fun, and full of artistic integrity.
Flying chromatic spheres splatter across the turf and cover of Midway Paintball's six fields situated on 22 acres of woodlands and open spaces. Protective rental gear and paintball markers aid games of elimination, capture the flag, and save the king. The western field's buildings shelter tactical retreats, and the hyperball field's huge prone cylinders of corrugated piping allow for cat-like surprise attacks or intimidating sudden naps. Dotted with inflatable cover, the AstroTurf-covered NPPL–regulation field presents an ideal arena for professional-grade matches.
