TIFTON - The world's largest indoor paintball-only facility is coming to Tifton.  Construction is underway, converting the 56,000 square foot warehouse into six paintball fields. Each will have different obstacles to challenge both experts and beginners. 

"There's a lot of potential in this place, with six different fields you can't get bored of it," Tracy Swing said. 

"There's really no place you can go with insurance covered by liabilities that go with it, we'll be the only one within an eighty mile radius," owner Jim DeHart said.

You'll be able to play paintball 24 hours a day on weekends. Play begins Saturday, March 1. Paintball City is expected to be complete by the 4th of July.
