Twisted Paintball lets slip the dogs of nonlethal war across five distinct fields, each outfitted with different obstacles and forms of cover. Customers outfit themselves with a mask for protection before equipping an electronic rental marker with 3,000-psi compressed air tanks that hurl paintballs with the accuracy of a professional pitcher aiming at a dunk tank. The five fields span the drained banks of nearby Crystal Creek as well as its surrounding wooded terrain, although four of them are within a 30-second jaunt of the rest area.
Golf U at 242 sprawls across more than 20 acres of PGA-certified practice facilities, including driving ranges, putting and chipping greens, and bunker practice areas.

Golf U offers 40 hitting positions and 23 target greens, including an island green with lava moat. Fairway and greenside bunker practice areas fine-tune escape strategies from tricky lie angles with towering sides, tall grasses, and slowly swirling quicksand. The pro shop is stocked with drinks and snacks, and for an additional fee students can enroll in private lessons with highly trained golf instructors.
At the eco-conscious Legends Paintball, hopeful war-artists equipped with 500 paintballs each duck behind obstacles while searching for blank-canvas targets in daytime battles or nighttime skirmishes under the lights. Boldly sprint through the open tundra or pick off enemies one by one while crouching behind obstacles such as wooden spools, sandbags, and butter statues of General Patton sprawled out over the fields. The facility's environmentally friendly Draxxus EcoFill paintballs consist of food-based vegetal ingredients rather than oils, which ensures that there's no pollution runoff into the groundwater. After ducking, diving, and moonwalking through enemy fire, players can cool off with two drinks per person in covered picnic areas, stocked with gas grills and tables.
