There’s nothing like the smell of fresh napalm in the morning.
Or in my case, the smell of fresh paintball. A few months ago, I purchased a voucher from Living Social for a paintball session at Eastie Boyz Paintball. I’ve been paintballing before and at most places, you are placed on teams and given a mission like capture the flag. Then you strategize how you’re going to win. It’s more like playing Call of Duty or Battlefield.
But this time it was vastly different. From start to finish the Eastie Boyz experience was fun and accommodating, the host’s were hilarious and made us feel welcome and like we belonged. They provided everything including the coveralls. The price wasn’t that bad either. For $30 you get 100 paintball, rental of the gun, coveralls, mask and three hours of play time. We only played for a little more than an hour and a half but with only four of us playing two on two teams, we were running around like crazy.
The field brings out the true competitor in you. Imagine half a soccer field, scattered with inflated obstacles for cover and two teams in a free for all death match. You play a running and diving, free-for-all battle that simulates a soccer game with guns instead of a sit-in-a-tree-and-wait kind of game, and it really made this adventure a new experience for me.
Even though it was only four of us playing, we had a great time and were sweating by the time we were done. It was a great experience so thank you Eastie Boyz!. Thanks for a great experience, I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know and next time I’m bringing my whole family for some good ‘ol family bonding.
