At Storm Warning Paintball, combatants wage war with pigmented missiles fired year-round on indoor and outdoor fields. Outdoor warriors pull on modern-day chainmail and strategically assess the layout of a forested field with multilevelled wooden structures or the inflatable obstacles scattered about the grassy X Ball Sup Air field. Indoor paint-slingers crouch behind barrels and track foes through thermal lens goggles, before shellacking them into human replicas of The Scream with Tippmann 98 paintball markers.

Determined to find a clean, safe place where his own two sons could play, Jamie Schneiderman founded Kiddietown Play Centre as a place where youngsters could romp heedlessly without their parents having to worry about them falling on a hard floor or drinking too much fizzy lifting drink. Amid the palm trees, painted walls, and 16-foot ceilings of Kiddietown's new 3,000-square-foot location, young adventurers giggle and squeal as they carom around a variety of interactive play stations crowded with entertaining fixtures ranging from basketball hoops to toy trains. Wee guests can also practice making faux burgers on the play barbecue. In addition to daily play, Kiddietown also hosts birthday parties.

Bowlarama welcomes rollers of all ages to challenge each other in matches of traditional 10-pin bowling. Once fitted into rental shoes, groups of up to five players suppress pin rebellions on one of 18–24 lanes. Players aim their sights down narrow, hardwood fairways at murals depicting neon bowling balls and the Norse god of strikes. Keep eyes active on overhanging flat screen TVs or hands focused in matches of pool, air hockey, and video games (amenities vary depending on location). In addition to food and bar services, each Bowlarama hosts cosmic bowling events.

Upon glancing at the par of 31 and the yardage from the back tees—1,880—players might assume that a round of golf at The Links at Montague isn’t too serious. They’d be wrong. The course packs refinement and challenge into every corner of its diminutive space, from the stately stone entranceway and the clubhouse’s robust white pillars to the academy staffed by a CPGA Class A pro and the layout designed by architect Graham Cooke. He used every yard at his disposal to develop a nine-hole course reminiscent of larger championship loops. Players trek across carpet-like bentgrass fairways and greens, Kentucky bluegrass rough, and large, shimmering white bunkers raked regularly to erase the scrawled pleas for mercy. Running parallel to the eastern edge of Loon Lake, play also pulls players along a path that weaves through native hardwood trees and century-old softwoods, culminating in dramatic waterfront greens on the fourth and ninth holes.
