A rainbow of paint showers Dynamic Paintball's 8 acres, where players weave between bunkers. Year round, these simulated battlefields host games of intense Capture the Flag, during which participants must dodge acrylic salvos, hide behind wooden structures, and race across grassy fields. To keep things fun yet safe, Dynamic Paintball's staffers supervise all games and matches up players based on skill level. They also set up paintball battles for bachelor parties and birthdays.
Away from the technicolor warzone, a shaded staging area lets groups strategize and grab bites to eat. Players can also head over to Dynamic Paintball's proshop, where staffers repair damaged gear and recommend new paintball guns from the likes of Tippmann.
The staff of Family Shooting Center maintains a public outdoor range, where shooters of all skill levels can hone their firearms proficiency. A day in the trapshooting area challenges sportsmen with pedestal traps, ATA automatic traps, and five-stand sporting clay stations. Alternatively, pistol and rifle ranges offer marksmen targets up to 100 yards away. The facility's multitude of shooting styles also includes an archery range that lets bowmen hone hunter's vision sharper than Davy Crockett's, even after he got LASIK.
To further develop responsible firearms operators, instructors lead classes that range from basic safety courses to private instruction for law-enforcement officials. Safety and camaraderie are further encouraged through trapshooting leagues and special rates for Boy Scouts. When hunger starts affecting concentration, an onsite vendor refuels guests with fare such as hot dogs, pulled pork, and gourmet bratwursts made from game meats.
Even the most avid golfer understands that the game can have its drawbacks: travel, expense, and slow play are often found at the top of this list of grievances. Though they can't recreate many of the characteristics?fresh air, natural surroundings, easily impressed caddies?of an actual golf course, the 20 golf simulators at American Professional Golf Links seek to alleviate some of the common hassles of a real round of golf.
Each simulator allows users to play world-famous courses they might not otherwise play, including Doral, Congressional, and Royal Troon?27 courses in total. Golfers simply pick out the course they'd like to play on the computer's user interface, and then watch while the course renders on the simulator screen with striking accuracy. Golf shots hit directly into the screen yield the same results as they'd expect on a real course, combining factors such as launch angle, spin, and an excuse to yell "Fore!"
