Paintball Fixx's four playing fields provide battlegrounds for four different types of polychromatic warfare, allowing paint slingers to make artwork of their opponents on various terrains landmarked with obstacles. After selecting a battle style, players can outfit themselves with a marker and the appropriate safety equipment, such as masks and wound-erasing Wite-Out. Soldiers then take to the fields, sprinting through rapid-fire, five-player hyperball matches or dotting the outdoors during games of 10-man rec ball. Peg competitors as you scurry between course barricades and seek shelter behind lofty stacks of tractor tires or large wooden spools. An ammunition bag of 500 paintballs provides ample opportunity to slug opposing team members, and unlimited air refills for the day guarantee you won't have to resort to futilely throwing your paintballs. Although not included with today's Groupon, visit the on-site snack bar between matches to re-energize with a water ($1), soda ($1.50), or energy drink ($3).

On fall nights, Play Extreme Sports & Store's staff transport people a half-mile deep into the woods of a 30-acre outdoor entertainment arena and dare them to escape on a trail haunted by live actors. Twelve to 15 victims climb aboard a 2.5-ton military truck for a seemingly inconspicuous ride along the haunted trail each evening between 7:30 p.m. and midnight. At the epicenter of the paranormal playground, the truck mysteriously shuts down, abandoning riders, who must test internal compasses to find their way out. Explorers creep past trees dappled with severed heads while trying not to awaken sleeping pieces of possessed farm equipment. Costumed inhabitants draped in their finest layers of pond scum and spanish moss emerge from the shadows to cordially frighten wanderers frantically scouring the area in an attempt to find the exit. Face irrational inner fears by confronting scary props, spooky audio effects, and shadows that eerily mimic every move of the people they follow.
