What You'll Get
If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs instead of rifles, it might still be happening, but it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $40, you get all-day equipment rental for two people, 500 paintballs, two bottles of water, and two pouch carriers for extra paintballs (an $84 total value) at Skyline Paintball in Strasburg. If a group purchases and uses five or more Groupons on one day, participants may upgrade to a private session with their own referee.
Skyline Paintball wages war on boring weekends with a plethora of adrenaline-pumping pastimes in the Shenandoah Valley. The facility outfits pellet-slinging patrons with all the necessary rental equipment, including guns, goggles, air, and field access (a $50 value). Those who exhaust their initial supply of 500 pellets (a $20 value) can purchase more paint from Skyline ($20/500, $30/1,000, and $50+/2,000), saving players the trouble of having to harvest paintball eggs from wild neon hens. Today's deal also includes two pouch carriers for the paintballs (a $10 value) and two bottles of water (a $4 value). The facility boasts multiple fields, including the town field, castle field, frontier-fort field, monolith field, mars-attacks field, mars-just-here-for-snacks field, tunnel field, and more. Skyline Paintball is open year-round, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

About Skyline Paintball
Hidden among Strasburg's thicket of spindly trees, patchy grass, and dirt fields, castles and wooden forts stand strong while flying saucers hint of an alien invasion. This is all part of Skyline Paintball's battlefield landscape, which includes thirteen fields such as Mars Attacks and Frontier Fort. Before slinking through trenches and underground bunkers, players load up on fresh paintballs, sold by Skyline onsite. Refs oversee matches to ensure everyone understands the finer techniques of pointillism and that no one uses a marker that fires faster than 280 feet per second. Less experienced players who rent equipment play in separate games from more experienced players who own their equipment, helping ensure games are evenly matched. Players can walk on during open play each Saturday and Sunday during which up to 20 players can sling rainbows of paint throughout strategy-laden matches.
