What You'll Get
Paintball is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take paintball arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon: for $19 you get a full-day paintball package at SledgeHammer Paintball in Buena Vista (a $38 value). SledgeHammer Paintball is open to the public on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The package includes the following:
- A full-day field admission
- A Tippmann 98 semiautomatic paintball gun rental
- A 20-ounce CO2 tank with all-day refills
- Facemask, goggles, and barrel-cover rental
- One hopper of paintballs (between 200 and 300 paintballs)
At SledgeHammer Paintball, paint-splattering battles and simulated showdowns sprawl across four outdoor playing fields. Players ditch the easel and make opponents their palettes as they load up their Tippmann 98 markers and charge enemy lines. Players can duck and weave as they fight to control Ft. Apache, evade a torrent of fire in the Desert Storm scenario, or challenge a tumbleweed to a duel at high noon on the Western City map. Adrenaline courses through even the most experienced sharpshooter on the regulation-size speedball field, as a series of inflatable obstacles provide the only cover from adversaries' onslaughts and parents blowing kisses from the sidelines. Outside paint is not permitted at SledgeHammer; extra paintballs can be purchased from its on-site store ($16, including tax, for 500).
