Smoky Mountain's two outdoor fields host epic yet safety-minded battles in which recreational soldiers can combat opposing armies with paintballs or airsoft BBs. After being outfitted with paint- or BB-propelling devices and safety equipment, step out onto one of the combat zones filled with bunkers, hiding places, and paint-filled minefields. Officials spare the time and attention to listen to players' suggestions and ensure splattered safety for all skill levels, from impressionist infantry to pigment-pummeler. Bring a friend along and resolve that decade-long dispute about Triscuit toppings while forging new friends and enemies in the multihued heat of combat. Equipment is only included with the $30 option; customers can either bring their own unopened biodegradable airsoft BBs, or they can purchase them from Parafrog Airsoft in West Knoxville, where Groupon holders will receive a $1 discount on bags of BBs.
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.
