Harbor Queen Cruises' namesake cruise boat Harbor Queen slices through the sparkling waters of Narragansett Bay during daytime jaunts or evening soirees. Passengers can take to the high seas for dining and drinks during dinner or brunch cruises, or wander the two climate-controlled decks during cocktail parties. Harbor Queen Cruises makes parties memorable with the help of an onboard chef, who crafts buffet-style meals and New England–style clambakes, and a complimentary parrot for every guest’s shoulder.
Armed with safe BB guns, airsoft combatants storm Ultimate Battle Ground's two simulated combat zones, each fully stocked with war-ready bunkers, hideouts, and spacious battlegrounds. Similar to paintball, airsoft is a recreational sport that consists of overpowering opponents with team strategy, shooting, and secret signals using birdsong. At Ultimate Battle Ground's 90-acre outdoor facility, pellet punishers perch atop watchtowers or traverse rolling woodlands and war-ravaged sites including a firebase, medical center, fuel depot, and a downed airplane. The 12,000-square-foot indoor facility, on the other hand, allows adversaries to lay siege to a mock city named Urbanville. POW camp setups and a trench complex add realistic touches to plundered boroughs.
At Trader Jan’s Archery Pro Shop, up to 23 archers can take aim and send arrows singing through the air toward targets on 10-, 20-, and 40-yard ranges. Trader Jan's virtual ranges provide bow shooters with foam targets and 3D targets that simulate hunting deer, as well as paper targets that simulate hunting wild bullseyes.
In the pro shop, the specialists outfit customers with recurve bows, compound bows, traditional bows, and youth bows. They can also set archers up with sights, scopes, stabilizers, and supplies for building custom arrows.
Boxing is renowned for its full-body fitness benefits and its high-intensity workouts. It's also considered by many to be a male-dominated sport. Dena Paolino is changing that. In 2009 she established Striking Beauties, the only female-centric boxing gym in New England, as a way to introduce women to the sport. At the gym, instructors lead beginners and experienced boxers through sessions full of jabs, strikes, and uppercuts, all of which help build muscle tone, boost endurance and agility, and develop hand-eye coordination.
As neon obstacles glow under a series of black lights, teams move through two levels of mazes and catwalks as they avoid the photon blasts of opposing players' and the pitfalls of the 7,500 sq. ft. arena. While sprinting up ramps and seeking cover, players must avoid strategically placed laser mines that flash and beep before tagging anyone within reach, which effectively deactivates their equipment and James Bond trivia knowledge for 12 seconds. Players can earn points by blasting the mines first, while bases and targets offer chances to earn even more tally marks.
After futuristic battles conclude, guests can putt through an 18-hole mini golf course surrounded by alien planets and dinosaurs. Off the course, visitors can also sling skee balls and pop tokens into games in the arcade to win tickets redeemable for prizes. With a laser maze where players navigate beams of light and four party rooms added to the mix, Lazer Gate becomes the ideal spot for birthday parties or training camps for lethargic clones.
