Each arena at The Paintball Park brings in fresh equipment every season to keep paintballers on their toes. Barricades, bunkers, trenches, and tall trees provide ample cover for firing off shots at opponents, ducking from overhead fire, or meeting to discuss how to get the pizza-delivery man into the fortress unharmed. Games of elimination battles give players a chance to take out the other team while sprinting between the wreckage of tanks and helicopters.
Each of the Paintball Park's paintball fields has a distinct feel. Running beneath dinosaur sculptures lends to a carefree sensation, and trying to find an entrance in endless, gray castle walls evokes the sense that one is an ancient warrior who left his keys somewhere.
The Discover Scuba Diving class will outfit freshly finned divers with all the properly sized and fitted equipment necessary to dive and thrive under the sea. After comprehensive safety preparation and lessons in the function of each tiny piece of equipment such as the regulator, pressure gauge, and spear gun, you'll plunge into the pool. Under the careful, encouraging supervision of the resident dive master, you'll practice basic maneuvers, breathing techniques, and shark-boxing skills. Starting in the shallows, students will get comfortable with newly sprouted mechanical gills before venturing into deeper waters for more free-form exploration.
The historic attractions of Belmont Park have enchanted mail clerks and amateur parrots for more than 80 years since the opening of the iconic Giant Dipper roller coaster and Plunge Olympic Pool. Refusing to remain static, the park has expanded and integrated new entertainment pulls over the years. The black-light mini-golf course provides nine holes of addictive frustration, glow-in-the-dark geometry, and humbling humiliation. With putting secured under one's golf-belt, a sojourn at the funhouse world of the Magical Mystery Mirror Maze can aid in the embrace of altered perception as California’s only mirror maze of its kind, where long halls of mirrors unfold to the sound of '60s psychedelic music, and a million reflections of yourself unite to find an exit. Enter the Laser Maze with or without a spandex-nylon suit for a timed course of laser evasion. Normally, $20 gets you the Super Combo Package, which includes 9 holes of mini-golf, the laser-maze–mirror-maze combo, and 20 tokens; chipstix and soda usually runs $5.
The multiple Tony Award–winning La Jolla Playhouse stacks each spectacular season with audience-enchanting plays that often matriculate to Broadway and off-Broadway success. This year's season kicks off with the world premiere of Arthur Kopit and Anton Dudley's comedy, A Dram of Drummhicit. Directed by the playhouse's artistic director Christopher Ashley, fresh from a Tony win for the musical Memphis, this play follows a comedic culture clash in small-town Scotland as an American businessman breaks ground for his dream golf course—and digs up bodies in the process.
The craftspeople at Art & Framing by Munro Gallery draw on more than 45 years of experience as they frame cherished items and curate fine arts and crafts. With skillful hands, they swaddle artwork, diplomas, memorabilia, and photos using elements plucked from an arsenal of more than 2,500 mouldings and 1,000 mat samples. When they aren't adorning pictures with princely garb, they stock their shelves with paintings, sculptures, and jewelry that give residences and outfits more personality than Elton John’s herd of peacocks.
