Paintballs and airsoft ammo whiz through the air across East Coast Extreme Inc.'s 8 acres of simulated battlegrounds. On wooded fields, forest canopies cast shadows over paintball players as they weave through tree trunks, duck into ditches, and launch more acrylic salvos than a frustrated cartoonist. Elsewhere, splatterless ammo fires across 2 acres of airsoft fields. East Coast Extreme Inc.'s pro shop helps players stock up for these friendly battles. Its rich blue walls enclose a sea of airsoft and paintball gear, including guns with flashlights and laser scopes as well as safety gear.
Hot Shots Paintball?s 20 acres of sprawling terrain play host to paint slingers dashing around ten outdoor fields during adrenaline-pumping speedball, woodsball, and scenario games. Strewn with tires, a maze of plywood walls, and even an old bus, the fields conceal players from advancing enemies and stealth bombers migrating south for the winter. After epic battles, the onsite pro shop plies players with extra field-paint ammunition. Paintballing friends can also plan fun paintball-team events, birthday parties, and corporate outings for effective team-building exercises that don?t involve gluing the sales staff to people in marketing.
Competitors take aim during both regulation-style and free-for-all play on Spent Paintball's two fields. On the speedball field, players traverse artificial turf as they duck behind orange geometric-shaped obstacles to evade their opponents, and on the woodsball field, combatants trample real grass turf that is regularly trimmed by the staff so as not to trip up patrons. Fill stations are conveniently located in the park, and both staging areas and spectator bleachers offer protection from the hot sun or unexpected Skittles downpours.
At Action Town Florida, battles take place with paint, lasers, and putters. A professional paintball team designed the outdoor paintball arena, which sprawls across 2 acres and encompasses urban-warfare and garage areas. Area 51, the laser-tag arena, fuels competition with high-tempo music and glow-in-the-dark obstacles. The nine-hole miniature golf course also glows in the dark, offering a helpful way to distinguish between real obstacles and imaginary friends' heads. Action Town Florida also fills its facility with arcade games, bumper cars, and climbing walls, as well as a bounce-house city with very reasonable property taxes. Its party packages give guests a taste of all offerings, along with refreshments and food.
From the outside, China Steak House's diner-style windows and corner location almost make the restaurant feel torn from an Edward Hopper painting—with the addition of red lanterns hanging from its awning. But within, it’s the eatery's commitment to a variety of regional Chinese flavors that’s the main draw. Cantonese noodle dishes find good company alongside the menu’s spicy Szechuan entrees and occasional Miami-style touches—such fried plantains—find their way into the mix. The dining room incorporates a bit of a ballroom vibe with its high-backed booths and heavy wood chairs surrounding lacquered tables that add class to an already refined dining experience.
PMC Airsoft was bred out of a love of sport and teamwork. It started when a group of friends—all airsoft players—formed a competitive team. Determined to get better, they built their own private airsoft park, which eventually transitioned into what PMC Airsoft is today: a sprawling store with an exhaustive stock of airsoft guns and accessories.
PMC Airsoft's team can help customers select the perfect airsoft firearm, or peruse accessories such as camouflage and face paint—perfect for surprising a rival in his or her bedroom. The staff also includes a resident airsoft gunsmith, who can add upgrades to equipment, such as scopes, or customize an airsoft gun from the ground up.
