Poconos Paintball

Paintball. It was created before most people that play were born, but in recent years the extreme game has found a revitalization as paintball fields pop up around the nation. Those who love the game will drive for hours to play at a new field to test their skills against the locals. Or maybe to just light up a few newbs. If you happen to be in or around the Pocono Mountains, there are two fields you shouldn't miss.

Skirmish USA, just outside Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, is known for its award winning paintball fields. With twelve fields such as Tippmann City, a mock town with twenty-seven buildings or the Tippmann Castle with ten towers, six gates and inner rooms to hide in, you are sure to leave with enough bruises to show off to your buddies. There is even a downed helicopter. Make sure to check out their rates and specials at skirmish.com.

Also located near Jim Thorpe is Pocono Mountain Paintball. PMP has eighteen fields with three scenario fields. The fields are arranged so that there is no long bus ride to get to anywhere you want to go. Try out the challenging Bear's Den, Fort Courage or any other of their fields with range of terrain from streams and hills. You can find them at playpaintballhere.com.

So if you're one of those guys that has markers and masks strewn throughout your house, you might as well try both. Because after all, true paintballers never miss an opportunity to gog someone.
