If you are tired of spending your Saturday and Sunday mornings lying around with a hangover — what better way to kick it then by running around outdoors and shooting people with paintballs while wearing a Darth Vader mask and army fatigues.
We went paintballing a couple weeks ago and, aside from the aftermath of welts and bruises, we enjoyed it immensely.
Weichang Paintball Shooting Sports Centre is a bit out of town, so share a taxi from downtown (100 RMB, takes 40 minutes). Entrance is 150 RMB per person including gear, 90 paintballs and one hour of field access.

Shanghaiist’s managing editor Dan Washburn wrote an interesting article entitled “‘That sniper was all over me, man’” about his paintballing experiences … in Georgia, but seeing as the the game is pretty much the same wherever you go, check it out. Our favorite line is “I love the smell of paintballs in the morning.”
