Bryan Gatley, the co-owner of Fore Seasons Mini Golf and Holy Cow Ice Cream, sometimes personally scoops ice cream or frozen yogurt at the storefront counter. He chats with patrons or throws one scoop over his shoulder for good luck as he dispenses cool treats from nearby Bliss Bros. Dairy. For more than eight decades, craftsmen at the farm have mixed pure cane sugar with natural vanilla extracts to forge cool swirls for filling cups and cones. At Fore Seasons, happy shouts fueled by the sweets drift from the indoor mini-golf course and a vintage arcade with 35 different games. The building started out as a nightclub, and the course still retains some flair from its former life; black lights buzz overhead and glow-in-the-dark strips line putting greens and holes. A whimsical ornament embellishes each hole, from a traffic light that radiates caution to a lighthouse that guides golfers back to the tee like the weeping of a lost caddy.

A player crouches and duck walks toward the base of an uprooted tree, stepping judiciously to avoid crunching the fallen leaves and pine needles that might give his position away. In the dense woods, an opponent could be mere feet away, perhaps lurking behind a nearby rock wall. Fox 4 Paintball's 34 acres span both wooded terrain and fields designed with inflated bunkers. In addition to supervising the grounds' public play, referees oversee special mission-based scenario games, which are designed after action films such as Ice Station Zebra and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Beyond the fields, Fox 4's facilities encompass a snack stand and picnic tables where players can enjoy any refreshment they bring, barring alcoholic beverages and whole roasted mastodons.
