Paintball evolved from the days when Michelangelo challenged da Vinci to a duel with the slap of a watercoloured glove. Defy foes using Pollock-esque weaponry with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a paintball package at Stormin Norman’s Paintball Adventures (a $39.20 value) on Vancouver Island.
For 29 years, Stormin Norman’s has loaded ammo into hue-spewing machines on more than 11 acres of open, rustic terrain. People of all experience levels can pull the trigger on finger-painting’s untamed cousin with up to 2.5 hours of colourful manhunts overseen by referees. Today's package snares a paintball gun, 200 paintballs, safety goggles, and a pair of coveralls for fuss-free controlled frenzy. Obtain package upgrades at additional cost to benefit from a snazzy camouflage jacket or a portable force field of stretched canvas. Stop by and visit the facility’s new seven-acre course on Sooke Highway, with mountaintops that facilitate birds’-eye views on enemy camps and bald-spot bull's-eyes.

Referees scrutinize combatants' shots and maneuvers as they crouch behind trees, rocks, and other natural cover.

Stormin' Norman's outfits guests with Tippman 98 Custom markers, camouflage protective gear, goggles, and ammunition to give them a fighting chance on the battlefield.
