Total Combat Paintball
Covering more than 40,000 square feet of real estate at the Chula Vista Otay Ranch Mall, Total Combat Paintball strives to host sharpshooting clashes that players of all ages can enjoy. Take TCP’s Splatmaster parties for instance, where players as young as 6 can finally ditch the sidelines and join the action. During these rounds, lighter ammunition is used, ensuring no player leaves with welts or bruises that awkwardly spell the name of their secret crush. TCP hosts competitions for more experienced players throughout the year, too. It often transforms into a battleground for high school tournaments and other special events, such as “Glow Nights” that feature glowing gear, laser lights, and thumping music.
