With the Atlanta skyline as their backdrop, players at Dosser Works Paintball fire rounds of pigment on four outdoor fields, each covered to keep out inclement weather and the sun’s judgmental glare. Experienced paintball players run these facilities, and they channel their knowledge of the game by supervising safety and regularly changing field layouts and game scenarios. Themed competitions and night games play out on two tournament-size fields, an astroturf-covered speedball field dotted with air bunkers, and a post-apocalyptic warzone where competitors dive and shoot from behind mounds of tires, sandbags, and an authentic burned-out Ford Windstar. A sniper tower between the speedball and dirt fields lets players take aim and give constructive haircut critiques to those below. The play area at Dosser Works Paintball has expanded to include two new fields called "The Back Lands" with two airplanes, a derelict van, two mountains connected by a bridge, topped with flag towers.
In July of 2014, Dr. Timothy Lietz admitted a patient suffering from a mysterious disease to his lab. Although she should have been dead?all her vital signs were virtually absent, save for a trickle of brain activity?the former medical student suffered from violent fits and, well, episodes of biting. The violent virus soon spread to the rest of the staff, including Dr. Lietz, as evidenced in the doctor's haunting audio logs. The disease has since spread, creating hordes of what are now recognized as zombies. Visitors to Zombie Works, located at Dosser Works paintball arena, have one mission: take out the zombies. Armed with paintball guns, the spooked survivors must take on scores of the undead, who succumb just as quickly to the impact of paintballs as they do to an axe in the skull or a very loud recording of the guitar solo from "Crazy Train."
Hauling Plus helps homeowners simplify clutter-clogged living spaces, removing unneeded appliances, furniture, carpet, and household debris. Its team of rubbish wranglers offers daytime appointments from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to carry and haul off a quarter of a truckload's worth of eight-track tapes and genie-less lamps. Hauling Plus's truck bed measures 14'x8', so today's Groupon will roughly cover the removal of 3.6 cubic feet of detritus. Hauling Plus will also schlep off excess remodeling debris, as well as yard and property waste, and it can arrange estimates for specialty assignments, including heavy items, bulk jobs, and the removal of houseguests who have overstayed their welcome.
