Splat! Let's play paintball at Ground Zero Paintball Center

Splat! That's the sound of being hit by a round capsule with gelatin and food coloring (no worries because it's a non-toxic, biodegradable, water soluble mineral oil). One hit and you'd be tagged with colors- either red, blue, yellow, pink, orange etc. and you or your team would lose the game. This is a game called Paintball.

Paintball is said to be a combination of the childhood games "tag" and "hide & seek" but instead of tagging through physical contact, a paintball is fired from a painball marker (paintball gun). Paintball is played with potentially limitless variety of rules and variations, which are specified before the game begins. The most basic game rule is that players must attempt to accomplish a goal without being shot with paintballs. But what sets the game apart is the adrenalin rush, competitive edge, team work, and strategy brought by the gameplay. 

Before, I had to Camp John Hay in Baguio just to play paintball. That is about 1 hour and 30 minutes travel time from Dagupan City. Now, I could play paintball anytime I want because the first Paintball Center in Pangasinan is up. Yey! 

Ground Zero Paintball Center, a 3,000 square meters net-enclosed facility with obstacles and designed scenario field would be open starting February 18, 2011. It is also the FIRST Paintball Center in Pangasinan! It is located at Brgy. San Vicente-Banaoang Road (Back of Plato Wraps, De Venecia Highway) Calasiao, Pangasinan. This is perfect for school & company tournaments, team building sessions,  barkada gimmicks, birthday parties, etc.

Let the games begin! Splat!
