As a relative newcomer to the Pocono Mountains, I was very interested to learn about the myriad of options awaiting the paintball enthusiast in our four-county region. I decided to see what all the fuss was about. My first experience was in the vast fields of Skirmish Paintball. I was not disappointed.
My friend and I suited up, loaded our guns, and took to the legendary Tippmann Castle field. The game started and we were immediately taking fire. We scurried from bunker to bunker as paintballs whizzed by us. My first "battle wound" was in the lower right leg as I climbed a ladder in the impressive castle. Being hit resembles snapping a rubber band against the skin. With all the adrenaline pumping, the hit is more surprising than painful. In fact, adrenaline is the name of the game. Paintball is an exciting, challenging, and altogether fun experience. I can't wait to go again!
