Cheerful war cries echo across seven themed fields at Xtreme Kombat, setting the stage for good-natured, adrenaline-steeped firefights. As they run across varied terrain, teams of paint-spraying artists engage in scenarios that urge them to slay zombies, capture the flag, or slay the reanimated flagpole. A 20,000-square-foot model city unleashes faux combatants to romp through an embassy, a hotel, and a bank, or crouch behind cars while catching their breaths and wiping flecks of paint from included masks. During evening sessions, the 14-building fort complex glows among the trees as players creep stealthily through the darkening woods. Unlimited air refills buy duos time to learn to work together and let couples resolve conflict without sending flowers to aggravate each others’ allergies.
In Paintsburgh City, warriors use a rundown embassy and unoccupied police station for cover as they dodge opposing armies. Friendships have been put aside for the day as teams stealthily move about the 20,000-square-foot ghost town, aiming their CO2-powered paintball guns to hit targets and score bragging rights. The elaborate city is one of several scenario fields that make Xtreme Kombat's paintball and training facility a draw for both recreational players and professional law-enforcement and military personnel seeking challenging training environs. In addition to Paintsburgh's watchtowers and wrecked vehicles, the other themed fields—with names like Fort Massacre and Death Valley POW Hills—combine imaginative storylines with wooded landscapes, obstacles, and freelancing ghosts. The complex's fields are also illuminated for after-dark play.
