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 $22, you get an all-day paintball pass to Sure Shot Paintball, located next to Jellystone Park Camp Resort in Quarryville (up to a $45 value).
Sure Shot Paintball's squad of chromatic commandos outfits new recruits with rental equipment and sends them to do battle across 10 fields of glory. Each all-day pass includes an all-day field fee (up to a $20 value), 200 paintballs (a $10 value), and rental equipment, including a paintball gun, an air tank with unlimited gas refills, a mask, a barrel cover, and executive permission to wear a bandana (a $15 value). Brush-based battles occur in The Bear's Lair, featuring metal tubes that snake through large dirt mounds, providing high vantage points and ample spots for ambushes. The Assassin's Castle Compound provides the backdrop for attack-and-defend games, centered around a compound that must be infiltrated to secure the flag and the kingdom's reserve of precious gold paint. Frenetic action can be found at the Air Ball Facility, a netted arena with inflatable cover that can convert from a 7-on-7 field into two 3-on-3 fields.
Spectators can watch in splatter-safety from multiple netted areas or avail themselves of the park's snack bar. Fine-tune marker sights at the shooting range, or browse the pro shop's wide selection of paintball guns, equipment, and Pollock prints.
Sure Shot Paintball closes for the season after November 13, 2011 and will re-open in April 2012.
