6 Unique Things to Do in Savannah
Everybody knows there’s lots of things to do in Savannah! But for the vacationer to Savannah that’s been here a few times and wants to try something new, we’ve put together this list of six unique things to do in Savannah that you probably haven’t done before!
Drive a Tank in Savannah
Did you know that you can drive an actual retired military tank on your next visit to Savannah?
Located near Pooler, GA 20 minutes from downtown Savannah, The Combat Zone has real military tanks available for the public to drive!
Featuring an FV432 Turreted APC, and an FV433 Armored Mobile Howitzer, The Combat Zone will let you and your family or friends operate and drive these real tanks around on their large track/obstacle course.
You can even rent both armored vehicles for a tank versus tank machine-gun paintball battle!
Enjoy Mini-Tank Paintball Battles!
If driving real tanks isn’t cool enough for you, we know you’ve never done this: The Combat Zone has the United States’ first and only mini paintball tanks ready for battle.
Visitors to Savannah can drive a scaled down version of a real tank that fires paintballs out of the cannon!
Adults and anyone older than 8 years old can engage in the mini-tank battles on the mini tank battlefield. Eight of the mini tanks are available for battle of teams of 4 versus 4.
The miniature paintball tanks run on tracks just like a real tank, and are controlled using two levers just like their larger relatives. But, again, and most importantly: The mini tanks fire big paintballs at each other out of the cannons!
For a truly unique (and affordable) experience that you’ll remember forever on your next visit to Savannah, check out these mini paintball tanks!
Glow in the Dark Paintball War
Night paintball is seriously fun. Full-auto military style machine guns fire glow in the dark paintballs at your opponents.
The outdoor paintball field is light up by flood lights and black lights, with fog machines to obscure your location, and that of your enemies. Participants are issued smoke grenades, and have to navigate obstacles and be on the lookout for trip-wire beacons that can give away their location.
Also, zombies. There are one or more zombies on the field looking for you, played by real actors! Watch out for and eliminate the zombies before they eliminate you!
Nighttime paintball at The Combat Zone is every night Thursday through Saturday. Reservations are required, so plan accordingly. Call (912)-675-9952 or click here for more info.
