Paintball Plex hosts colorful clashes on the battlegrounds of a 38,000-square-foot indoor field and across multiple acres of outdoor fields that are open from spring through fall. In the expansive indoor combat zone, players dive behind air bunkers to duck from incoming fire and cacophonous army drummers before reemerging to pump opponents full of color with semiautomatic Tippmann markers powered by complimentary compressed air. Outdoor fields cajole combatants with a lush 300’x180’ speedball area and a WWII-style scenario field peppered with two acres of foxholes, mazes, and sandbags. Games typically last 10–20 minutes and often include combat missions such as search and rescue and capture the flag.

Additional paint is available for onsite purchase to replenish dwindling supplies for combatants or battlefield stenographers. Participants may also browse Paintball Plex's pro shop, which teems with new scenario- and tournament-style paintball gear and loads of gently used equipment.

Joppa Minerals founder Amy Casto-Booher began her search for chemical-free cosmetics in 2005, when her daughter, Hayley, was diagnosed with psoriasis. Dissatisfied with the products she found on the market, Amy started crafting all-natural beauty products herself, eschewing additives for pure minerals. Amy's mineral foundation is her first and best-selling product, melding into skin in one of four formulas that cater to oily, aging, or gill-flecked skin. Amy also keeps her lightweight products—which include face creams, blush, eye shadow, and blemish treatments—at a reasonable price.
