Apocalypse Games has carved its 37-acre site into four different fields to test the marksmanship and dodgemanship of paintballers in a variety of game types. On the speedball field, teams of three to five paint pugilists take to the air-ball fields for quick five-minute bouts of target practice. The large woods field offers plenty of bunkers for repelling flag capture attempts. In the swamp, however, paint-privates will search in vain for any underbrush to save them from oncoming paint orbs and paint-bear attacks. Perched on top of Bunker Hill, a large castle provides ample fortifications for the defending team to protect itself against the advancing enemy, who have 20 minutes to take the fortress. A ref is always around to make sure players aren't lying about their multicolored badges of courage or mother's maiden names. Call ahead to check availability.

Stepping into the Roller Dome Skate Center is like traveling back in time to the 1950s. The two retro rinks on the north and south side of town are still run by original owner Marg Wall—now in her 90s—who is proud to say that the centers' gleaming floors and '50s decor still draw skaters of all ages. But some things have changed. Amid modern amenities including with air conditioning, advanced sound systems, and lighting, skaters can enjoy turns round the rinks during open-skating sessions and special events, such as birthday parties and family nights. The seasoned instructors teach newbies how to skate during group lessons, and in speed-skating sessions, skaters learn how to quickly race around the track, practicing avoiding banana peels left by gorillas in go-karts. Both centers also offer on-site pro shops, where guests can outfit their skates with colorful wheels and skate bags.

Putt-Putt Fun Center combats the doldrums with the triumvirate of putt-putt golf, go-karts, and arcade games. The center boasts three themed putt putt golf courses, one of which rumbles the ground under golfers? feet with a volcano that regularly spews a ball of fire 20 feet into the air after the sun sets. Meanwhile in the Race Zone, go-karts zip around a track designed to accommodate all ages of driver, and double-seated family karts allow underage riders to tag along. The arcades allows guests to continue the simulation of extreme experiences with games such as Big Buck Hunter Safari, which helps players to feel the hunter-gatherer?s feeling of elation at a kill or shame at having to return home with rock stew. After a long day of activity, the center?s Snack Shack facilitates the scarfing of pizza, hot dogs, and soft pretzels, which can be washed down with a bottled Coke.:m]]
