When 'Call Of Duty' Doesn't Cut It

Every now and then I will do something crazy like jump out of plane or ride a stubborn horse.

This weekend I played Indoor Paintball, what's so crazy about that? Well, I played with a team that are backed by 14 years of experience in THE Special Forces!

What was I thinking? I don't know, but I must say these guys really know how to have fun!

Located 5 minutes from the CBD and right next to the Normaby Hotel, Spec Ops Paintball is every mans dream come true.

Ladies, if you're not afraid of a bruise or two, you will really enjoy letting out a little steam on the battlefield.

The amazing team behind Spec Ops paintball have recreated a realistic combat arena in a safe urban environment.

What makes Spec Ops paintball different from the rest is that their game-play is based on real experiences from conflict zones.

It is purpose built with interchangeable walls and props that are moved around depending on the scenario. You are encouraged to slide over the hood of car, use the fridge door as a shield, break through a door, whatever you need to do to complete the mission.

They even turn the lights off at the end to make it even harder, because surviving wasn't hard enough when I could see!

You will be amazed at how much of this game is tactical and about guts, and teamwork.

Which is why this is the perfect the team building activity or bucks outing alternative, although I should warn you that it's likely that the groom will be picked to play the hostage.

The team is also open to special requests for private bookings, gather 20 or more of your friends and have your very own WORLD WAR Z!

Expect your heart to race, your pulse to...pulsate and mainly to have a hell of good time.

I didn't know what to expect, but I can tell you that this seemingly 'bit of fun with paint game' exceeded anything I could have imagined and I am a writer!

I will be back for more and I now know where to send every male who claims to be a Call of Duty expert. I dare you tough guys to go up against the Spec Ops team! No....I DOUBLE DARE YOU!

To my friends who may be wondering, yeah I got hit a lot but I also kicked a little 'paint around' of my own.

Brisbane make sure you tell Aletheia and Francis I sent you, no they won't go any easier on you, but it's my way of saying thank you for an unreal experience. Calling all hot shots ... Paint ball just got real!
