What You'll Get
With the advent of paintball, Jackson Pollock imitators finally have a way to replicate his signature method of coating stray dogs in paint and waiting until they shake onto a nearby canvas. Splash paint all over opposing human canvases with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a full-day entry to Tombstone Paintball Park in Colton, complete with a gun, mask, air, and 100 paintballs.
Tombstone Paintball Park offers outdoor enthusiasts an exciting opportunity to reduce stress and enjoy nature while flinging paint at foes with all-day access to the park ($45, gun and mask included), all-day air ($10), and 100 paint-filled spheroids ($7) that can be customized to leave a splatter pattern that looks exactly like your first name. Twenty acres of terrain gives ample room for a variety of different playing fields with various themes. Storm the Civil War field, which features log revetments and multicolored courage badges, or defend the Siegfried Line—a large network of unmapped trenches, sandbags, and conduits that keep the enemy constantly dizzy, lost, or both.
All skill levels and degrees of intensity are welcome at Tombstone Paintball Park, although guests must be at least 10 years old to trade paint with other players. The park is open on weekends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and it also hosts games on certain holidays as well as every day between Christmas and New Year’s. Gear up with your paint-proof vest and radar-scrambling belt buckle for an exciting day of dodging paintballs like Neo in The Matrix Repainted.
Groups of 20 or more, please call ahead ($200 refundable deposit required).
