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 $45, you get an all-day paintball outing for two at Smoky Mountain Paintball in Seymour (a $90 total value). The package includes:
- Gun, mask, and field fee for two (a $30 value/person)
- Two pods of paintballs (a $13 value/person)
- Neck protector (a $2 value/person)
- Complimentary unlimited CO2
Smoky Mountain Paintball arms marksmen with quality weapons and plentiful paintballs for a day’s worth of competitive play on its two outdoor courses. Players shield themselves in masks and neck protectors before crouching behind barrels, trees, and chameleons camouflaged as employees as they attempt to eliminate opponents with colorful pellet shots. Each participant brandishes a gun replete with a hopper of paintballs and complimentary CO2 canisters, and an additional 500 paintballs await trigger-happy clients. In addition to ensuring that gunsmiths adhere to rules and sportsmanship, referees can customize rules to patron preferences, such as replacing sniper shots with tickle ambushes. Visitors to Smoky Mountain Paintball on Scenario Saturdays may use their Groupons to partake in one scenario session.

About Smoky Mountain Paintball
A man runs through the forest, pausing briefly to take in his surroundings: rolling mountains and verdant trees as far as the eye can see. Suddenly, a twig cracks, breaking the silence, and the pristine view dissolves within a cloud of paint. The game is over.
At its outpost within the mountains, Smoky Mountain Paintball has converted the area's natural terrain into outdoor paintball fields. Here, players weave between trees and peak over walls in search of enemy combatants. The simulated battlefields are also a strategist’s dream; referees take requests, and will set up almost any type of game provided that players adhere to the rules and don't require a human-sized chessboard.
Away from the colorful warzone, a pro shop brims with camouflage and Tippmann markers, In addition to paint-fueled grudge matches, combatants can also settle scores with Smoky Mountain Paintball’s expanded arsenal of Airsoft and low-impact paintball battles.
