Drakes Creek Activity Center entreats groups and families to explore its numerous, family-friendly activities. Nine batting cages hold batters as they practice their homeruns, as an 18-hole mini-golf course strewn with fountains challenges putters. Meanwhile, an outdoor laser-tag area spans five acres, as others sup on soft serve or play aeroball, a mix between volleyball and basketball played on trampolines.
Across Xtreme Paintball's two outdoor fields, colorful salvos paint the sky as opposing gunsmiths duke it out during simulated battles. Red-and-black inflatable cover peppers the speedball field, guarding teams from enemy fire. The warzone field sets the stage for intense scenarios such as capture the flag and team elimination, during which players attempt to mark each opposing paintballer or stick a Kick Me sign to their back. Both open-air arenas play host to casual paintball outings, special events, and league play.
Xtreme Paintball's safety-focused experts monitor each 3–10 minute skirmish. The staff also checks over equipment between each game, whether players rent their gear or airdrop it in from home.

At Centennial Sportsplex, groups of laced-up gliders soar across a 200'x85' rink during public skating sessions. After strapping on chartered hockey or ice skates over thin socks, guests arc in gentle figure eights, practice salchow jumps, and carve complex polyhedrons into the smooth, icy surface. Snacks from the concession stand (available for purchase) quell seismic tummy grumbles mustered up after speed skating across the rink's frozen tundra. Visitors can store their worldly possessions in coin lockers or tote along their own padlocks to take advantage of complimentary lockers. Centennial Sportsplex recommends wearing a jacket or sweater in the rink, which at times feels as chilly as the snub of a popular snowman.
