What better way to spend a Sunday Funday than at Xtreme Park Adventures playing paintball with the family. Let me start off by saying this was my very FIRST paintball experience and I didn’t get the dress code memo NOT to wear anything you actually like and to dress down. I should have been ready to get dirty or painted on with old shirts and jeans that I could care less about. I know some of you may think this is common sense but, the way my mind is set up… Lol! I totally didn’t think about it until we got to Xtreme Adventure Park and I saw the way people were dressed to play in the outdoor field.
I had on a good pair of jeans, knit top, Michael Kors Fall Jacket and Merrell’s Sneakers. I laughed when I figured out I would be in paintball crossfire with this outfit on. Oh Em Gee… How can I forget about my natural kinky & curly hair? I didn’t wear a bandanna, hat or head wrap. Needless to say my hair would also be a casualty of paintball war. On the upside, we had gotten a great deal on Groupon for an all-day field pass for $18/per person. It’s usually $45 for the basic package and $55 for the premium package. There are also other attractions like zip lining, ropes course, laser tag, escape room and more.
What’s included? You get field entry all-day, paintball gun, mask, hopper, 200 paintballs and one full air tank. You can rent a vest and purchase additional paintballs. The only difference with the premium package is that you get 500 paintballs and air tank with unlimited air refills. If you have your own equipment you will only pay the entry fee and for paintballs. They are a FOP (Field Paint Only) so, no outside paint allowed. Xtreme Kombat Adventures has reasonable pricing and deals for large groups. They also run special promotions on a monthly basis. I can’t wait to catch another great deal!
There are six people in my immediate family so I am always looking for a great deal. We also love to invite friends and extended family to join us. The more the merrier! After we checked in and received all of our equipment it was time to hit the field. We participated in public field play meaning that there were about 50+ other people we didn’t know participating in this activity. You have the option to purchase two hours of private instruction where it will be just your group. I may consider a private party in the near future for a fun family activity. It’s also great for corporate team building.
Our Mission: So our mission was to get the “President” from one side of the field to the other. There were the good guys and the bad guys. The good guys were the ones escorting the “President” across the field. The field was full of barricades, trees and rocky hiding places. There was a base that you could rest up at if you got hit before you got back in the game. Good guys had unlimited lives and bad guys had one life. I was a good guy! I did get hit twice and in case you didn’t know, it can hurt a little! I had a blast! Have you ever played paintball? If so, did you like it?
