Teams clad in protective goggles scatter into a mountain field thick with laurel, rhododendron, and brier as they seek cover, their markers locked and loaded. Hearing paintballs whiz through the brush, a player dives into prone position. Adjusting her goggles after colliding with the ground, the combatant freezes, notices the silhouette of a whitetail deer crouched in the brush just yards away, and lets down her guard long enough to appreciate the moment before taking new aim.
At Pocono Mountain Paintball, players step onto 12 fields—including three scenario fields—ranging from untouched natural terrain to 1,700 feet of trenches and sandbag bunkers. To maximize players' game time, Pocono's staff maintains a reservation system that limits the fields to 100 players per day. Further touches include camouflage overall rentals, an online FAQ with participant advice, and changing rooms with hot showers so players can spruce up before meeting Mom for a post-game debriefing. Pocono's crew also coordinates rafting, biking, and kayaking packages through partner company Whitewater Rafting Adventures.

The thick hand-cut new york strip steak, like most of the dinner entrees, comes equipped with a side of potato and the vegetable du jour ($26). Lunch patrons can cool down torrid tongues with a cold sandwich such as the BLT with avocado ($6.50), or bundle up taste buds in the warmer bread-swaddled selections, which include the spinach-and-onion-laced chicken breast sandwich ($7.99) and the American burger served on a kaiser roll ($7.99).
Through the Looking Glass’s culinary wizards deftly silence hunger pangs with meticulously prepared lunch and dinner menus of upscale fare, welcoming diners to bring along their favorite libations within an eatery emanating romantic vibes.

Then, mouth dive into a petite filet-mignon sandwich that snuggles grilled tenderloin, sautéed mushrooms, and grilled peppers into the embrace of homemade bread, or sate herbivorous cravings sans chlorophyll injections with a portobello-mushroom salad dappled with sun-dried tomatoes.
