Action Star Games' outdoor battlefields facilitate colorful clashes between paint-slinging friends. On fields dotted with bunkers, trenches, and inflatable obstacles, paintballers dart in and out of the chromatic line of fire where inky warriors aged 10 and older practice the fine art of coloring between the lines at long range. Face masks protect sensitive eyes from inbound shots and sensitive ears from stinging taunts, although the 500 included paintballs provide ample means to write blistering Op-Eds on nearby trees. Full days of warfare begin at 9 a.m. and run until 3 p.m., and all games are monitored by Action Star Games' experienced referees, who keep the splattering safe and the combat fair.
Tombstone Paintball Park offers outdoor enthusiasts an exciting opportunity to reduce stress and enjoy nature while flinging paint at foes with all-day access to the park ($45, gun and mask included), all-day air ($10), and 100 paint-filled spheroids ($7) that can be customized to leave a splatter pattern that looks exactly like your first name. Twenty acres of terrain gives ample room for a variety of different playing fields with various themes. Storm the Civil War field, which features log revetments and multicolored courage badges, or defend the Siegfried Line—a large network of unmapped trenches, sandbags, and conduits that keep the enemy constantly dizzy, lost, or both.
Fiesta Village provides fun-seeking families with a multifaceted recreational destination. Unlike 100-yard dashes, the winding Fiesta Raceway gives lead-footed youngsters the chance to put their metallic extremities to good use, and a pair of mini-golf courses provides an all-you-can-putt birdie buffet. Head for the roller rink for a leisurely leg cruise, or hit the ride park for attractions such as the tilt-a-whirl, Bogey's Bounce House, and Slugger's Super Slide, which shows kids that gravity does more than just keep us from bumping into clouds. A 2,400-square-foot laser tag arena allows children to wield future weapons with mock-deadly cunning. Fiesta Village offers a concentrated dose of entertainment that surpasses the diluted offerings of much bigger recreational municipalities, such as Funky Towns and Paradise Cities.
With bunkers, wooden structures, and trenches, Code Red Airsoft Park's outdoor arena sets the stage for recreational airsoft games as well as for military and law-enforcement training. Staff members rigorously enforce all safety rules as combatants—each clad in protective gear—sing soundtracks to action movies from behind the sprawling play field's various forms of cover. During breaks in action, Code Red's crew runs a pro shop and invites players to rest on its porch equipped with industrial-size coolers.
Aside from open-play sessions, Code Red Airsoft Park's staff hosts special events and tactical airsoft training for marksmen who would like to improve their game. Organizers also put together themed games, such as simulated zombie outbreaks, and teach courses on accuracy, safety, and handling.
