Why not do something fun this weekend? It’s never a bad idea to gather your friends and do something exciting for a change, instead of just sitting at home staring at the TV. We know just the thing – paintball! There’s nothing like spending an afternoon outdoors, running around open grounds with a paintball gun in your hand, and various moving “targets” (who just happen to be your friends).
There’s nothing wrong with being a little competitive with your friends on the ‘battlefield’, it’s a thrilling and entertaining experience. And best of all, it gives you ample opportunity to enjoy some friendly payback on a certain mate who has had it coming. Just make sure you watch your back because you never know when a return fire will strike. Expect an afternoon of running, hiding, ducking and diving, leopard crawling and practising your stealth skills while stalking your opponents. And don’t worry, if you’re hit, it only stings for a bit. Remember, pain is temporary but glory is everlasting!
So, if you need to plan something action-packed for a birthday celebration, a bachelor or bachelorette party, a team building exercise, or simply want to spend an afternoon outdoors, check out this paintball ranges around the city. Make sure to wear old clothes, and as for safety gear – you’ll hire that at the venue.
