The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.

Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (most cost between $12 and $70) from Color Me Mine's selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's idea gallery, painters will select an underglaze from a cast of more than 50 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within three to five days.

At Paramount Tumbling & AcroGymnastics, children bound and tumble across the brightly colored mats, bounce on trampolines, and flip around parallel bars. But kids don't have to be aspiring gold-medal winners to join in on the fun. Here, the coaches focus on helping wee ones to develop motor skills and an appetite for fitness through positive reenforcement, while also teaching them gymnastics techniques. They lead programs for children of all ages, starting with preschoolers, that focus on having fun while learning tumbling skills, bar routines, and acrobatic moves.

In addition to classes, the expansive gym hosts open-gym sessions, which give little ones free reign to caper about all the equipment. They also welcome birthday parties and lead summer camps, which teach children to flip with or without the birthday-cake sugar boost.
