Get shot by one of these and chances are you'll have more than just a bruise to worry about, but if you're looking for the ultimate paintball rush, tankball is for you. You'll have to fly out to Northhamptonshire, England to give it a try, but $139 gets you two hours of tank time and quite possibly the biggest rush ever. Each battle pits you against another tank and you can have up to three buddies inside your vehicle. This is cool as hell, but it's a good thing we don't live in England cause we'd be too tempted to drive the tank out of range and invade small towns. Get us to England.

There used to be one of those Scandia "family fun" centers on Interstate 50, just outside of Sacramento, they had Tankball, but in basically overgrown gocarts with plywood on them to make them look like tanks, big targets on the sides, and a turret mounted air powered tennisball launcher.

One person drove the "tank", one person fired the "cannon", goal was to hit the target on the other tank, which would stop the tank for a few seconds and spew smoke, you weren't supposed to fire until the tank moved again, not that anyone ever listened to that rule.

Now they sell RVs there, I miss that place.

Would have been MUCH better with paintball guns.
