Airsoft is like a production of Hamlet: it's exciting, demanding, and by the end everyone has pretend-died. Take pellet-riddled arms against a sea of troubles with today's Groupon for indoor airsoft at Vanguard Indoor Playground in Gilbert. With 19,000 square feet of indoor arena space, visitors to Vanguard can indulge in BB-based airsoft warfare on an epic scale. Obstacles and barriers abound, making a complex battlefield for gun-wielding participants to engage in competitive gaming with plastic projectiles. Up to 12 hours (4 hours per session; number of sessions vary by day) of airsoft play, rental equipment for both sessions, including mask and gun, and 2,000 BB pellets are included for simulating all manner of tactic, wound, and family-friendly power play. Concessions are available on site for refueling depleted nourishment nodes, while a lounge area with couches and WiFi lets visitors read the Wikipedia entry for Sun Tzu's The Art of War in steely-eyed preparation.
Vanguard Paintball & Airsoft has more than 900 Facebook fans; here's what some have to say:
Players wage war across VIP Airsoft’s 19,000-square-foot cityscape, unleashing BBs down alleys, corridors, and courtyards. Referees regulate each game, roaming the field to stop unfair play or illegal equipment usage. Vanguard also rents airsoft guns to warriors who often also don chest, face, and hand protection. Between games, players can take advantage of free WiFi and satellite-television streams or check out the on-site pro shop and online products page to pick up new gear.
