What You'll Get
If the Hundred Years' War had been fought with paintballs, it might still be happening since it'd be so colorful that no one would mind. Experience your own vibrant battlefield with today's Groupon: for $19, you get admission and compressed air ($20), paintball gun rental and goggles ($10), and 200 paintballs ($8) at Splatball, Inc. in Rogers (a $38 total value). Outdoor open sessions are currently scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 p.m.–6 p.m. between May 15 and October 15.
Backed by 27 years of competitive paintball experience, the crew at Splatball, Inc. maintains three unique, obstacle-laden outdoor playing fields. After the resident staffers stack the teams fairly and evenly across both sides of the battle line, players grab a gun, hit the artificial turf, and engage each other until one team finally surrenders and hands over all their credit cards and car keys. Fighters who paint their way through all 200 rounds can visit the on-site pro shop, which offers a range of field-friendly paintballs ($20 for 500, $75 for 2000) that can be split among players both familiar and oppositional. Open play permits guests to fly solo or to bring a small army, regardless of skill level.

About Air Assault Indoor Paintball
At Air Assault Indoor Paintball, they've thought of everything. The climate-controlled indoor facility tasks players with a game that feels tough but ultimately stays safe. Players stalk their opponents across a 30,000-square-foot battle area, peppered with camo-printed inflatable obstacles. In an especially unique turn, the ammo here is designed to be "low-impact," sending players home with washable paint splatters but none of the bruises that accompany a typical paintball outing. The full-service facility also boasts a retail and repair shop, a large party area, concessions, and free paved parking. Staffers have even installed spectator windows, so guests can cheer on their friends or simply point and laugh.
