How rough do you like your ball action? Do you like when you’re gasping for air, covered in bruises and moaning in a this-sorta-hurts-but-feels-good kinda way? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Wicked Bucks has the solution for you. Paintballing gets the heart pumping, the brain cogs turning and boosts the endorphins. It’s the perfect way to put the soon-to-be-groom back in his place and seperate the boys from the men. When you imagine paintball, you probably envision being shot at, the inevitable bruises and the jail-like overalls that you get to wear. Well, your daydreams aren’t too far away from the truth. It’s one of those activities that looks stark-bonkers to outsiders (probably because it is), but it down-right fun for anyone playing.
After donning a glamorous pair of overalls, your group will be split into teams and armed with state-of-the-art weapons. With an expansive open terrain and your playing field, you’ll be let loose and sent head-to-head. It might look like a bunch of lunatics running around in circles, but the sport actually requires teamwork, communication, collaboration and careful coordination. The aim of the game is to splatter as much paint over your opponents as possible, while making your way into the opposing team’s territory, seizing their flag and returning to base. It’s like an Hollywood action blockbuster, but IRL.
With a name reminiscent of Sunday school and ancient cathedrals, you might be surprised to hear that Christchurch is actually a pretty rowdy and cheeky destination. While there are actually a seemingly endless number of churches in the city, this vibrant and dynamic region offers something for everyone. The burgeoning arts scene welcomes regular music gigs, a string of live performances and numerous galleries. These venues are the perfect place to recharge the batteries during the day, so that you can let loose at night. Speaking of hafter hours fun, Christchurch knows how to turn it on.
From Fairy-lit laneways and local craft breweries to quirky bars and chic urban hangout, you can mix, sip and boogie your way around this city. If you’re more of a nature-nerd than a night-owl, Christchurch offers a range of different outdoor playgrounds, including seaside neighbourhoods, walking tracks, epic surf breaks, and mountain biking. You can probably tell that Christchurch has a special place in our hearts, but we’re willing to share the love. Holler at us, and in return we’ll throw the greatest bucks celebration to ever go down. It’ll be one for the history books.
