Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.
Since 1978, families have flocked to Five Towns Mini Golf & Batting Range for a day filled with raucous fun. On the mini-golf course, they traipse through well-manicured greenery, wielding putters as they strive for holes-in-one. A circular batting range offers 10 different cages including machines that chuck softballs and baseballs at varying speeds, with a special wiffle-ball cage dedicated to little ones and people made of glass. Armed with paintball markers, players take aim at black-hatted villains in the Wild West–themed arena, then further train their eyes and hands in the arcade.
A palatial playscape, Inferno Limits Paintball & Laser Tag spreads its activities across 30,000 square feet. And 7,000 square feet are dedicated to arcade games alone, from classic skee-ball to multiperson racing games. The laser-tag arena is so large that up to 48 players can battle one another in scenarios that change every three months. A versatile space, the paintball field can be adapted for smaller, faster games or more complex ones, and skirmishes can unfold both inside and outside. But the arena's most daring challenge is to avoid Justin Bieber, should he ever stop by again. To refuel gamers, whether they're tuckered out from shooting basketballs, lasers, or paintballs, the caf? doles out pizza, hot dogs, and chicken fingers.

The nine outdoor paintball fields at Battle Creek Outdoor Paintball Fields turn players’ adventure fantasies into reality. Each has its own terrain, obstacles, and atmosphere to transport competitors into new worlds. In James Town, players can duck into the remains of abandoned buildings to take cover from incoming paint pellets like Jesse James once did, and they can climb the Junkyard's towers of tires or perch atop large spools to take aim at approaching opponents. Players must decide whether to be good or evil in The Fortress, either defending the fortress-like structure’s honor or attempting to conquer it and vanquish their opponents. Fantastic narratives aside, those seeking regulation-style play can face off in The Woods and Speedball fields.
