With a combat setting and makeshift war tactics, Darkside Paintball presents students with an alternative to studying or partying.

“I am impressed with how well the establishment was run. It’s another option for good, clean, wholesome fun,” said sophomore Isaac Stiegelmeier.

Joe Brandsma and Jeff Feucht will celebrate their second-year anniversary of owning Darkside Paintball when January rolls around.

Darkside Paintball is located in the Brookings Mall between Nyberg’s Ace Hardware and Carpy’s Bar. It’s open Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. They are also open to parties on any other day.

The average cost to play a round of paintball is $35 per person. This includes an entry fee, a paintball gun, goggles, all-day C02 use, and 500 rounds of paint. They also have other, less expensive packages available if you have your own equipment.

Groups of 10 or more that notify Darkside 24 hours in advance get a $5 discount per person.
