Apocalypse Games has carved its 37-acre site into four different fields to test the marksmanship and dodgemanship of paintballers in a variety of game types. On the speedball field, teams of three to five paint pugilists take to the air-ball fields for quick five-minute bouts of target practice. The large woods field offers plenty of bunkers for repelling flag capture attempts. In the swamp, however, paint-privates will search in vain for any underbrush to save them from oncoming paint orbs and paint-bear attacks. Perched on top of Bunker Hill, a large castle provides ample fortifications for the defending team to protect itself against the advancing enemy, who have 20 minutes to take the fortress. A ref is always around to make sure players aren't lying about their multicolored badges of courage or mother's maiden names. Call ahead to check availability.

Six galleries of fine automobiles adorn the space, each with a different theme and rotating assortment of retro roadsters. The Gallery of Classics houses a 1932 Duesenberg Model J Murphy convertible sedan, one of only 32 such examples bodied by the Walter M. Murphy Company that year. Non-automobile galleries range from a Clay Model Studio and a Hall of Technology to the original Auburn conference room, honoring art deco ingenuity with classic built-in banker’s lamps and chalkboard sketches for a flying car powered by the sound of jazz trumpet.
