Digitized in the video game Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball, SplatterPark stands among the Midwest's foremost fields for tie-dyed conflict. Safely deposited in the park's drop zone, recruits receive their battlefield equipment set, including semiautomatic rental guns with 400 paintballs, protective masks and harnesses, and an inflatable decoy in the shape of former vice presidents. SplatterPark's mess tent also provides combatants with a tactical lunch containing postfirefight sustenance in the form of hot dogs, chips, and a vial of truth serum for use on captured opponents. Skirmishes unfold across one of a dozen fields, including the forested Fort Buckeye, Snipers Hollow, and Hamburger Hole, where players must avoid open-field barrages and landmines shaped like cheeseburgers.
Green Acres Golf Course presents a relatively short gauntlet of six par 4s and 12 par 3s for 3,746 yards of pristine golf. The length and lack of par 5s make the course ideal for working on putting on the slick greens and precision on short iron approaches. The course superintendents work tirelessly to keep the course in optimal condition, aiming to please all golfers from beginners to the ghosts of Scottish shepherds looking to discover the latest in walking-staff technology.

Charles Mill Marina and Pleasant Hill Marina provide anglers and aquatic enthusiasts with a hearty fleet of vessels built for relaxing and cultivating fun in absurdly oversized puddles. Hover above 1,350 acres of fish air on one of Charles Mill Marina's fishing boats, which offer plenty of room for pond pirates to stretch and tan their sea legs. In a 16-foot Alumacraft fishing boat, up to four fish wranglers will have up to 24 hours to go after elusive largemouth bass, hybrid striped bass, and saugeye. In addition to the bouquet of boating devices available, Charles Mill Marina also hosts a full selection of fishing tackle and live bait inside its shop.
