Across Xtreme Paintball's three outdoor fields, colorful salvos paint the sky as opposing gunsmiths duke it out during simulated battles. 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. The 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.
Make the most of the summer's end and the school year's impending beginning at Maple Hill Sports Center, where gamers of all ages engage in friendly contests. The mini-golf course features a challenging layout of aquatic holes, complemented by amphibious floating golf balls to aid retrieval.

At the Aeroball cages, trampolining foes go jump-for-jump, competing for ballistic superiority of the hybrid basketball-volleyball-moon-exploring sport. Back on Earth, ballplayers of all ages can swing away in one of the five baseball and softball batting cages, all of which come standard with options to raise, lower, or bowdlerize the pitching machine.
The Discovery is an apt name for the Cumberland River Cruises pontoon boat, which explores the winding waters of Old Hickory Lake and the Cumberland River. Though available as a venue for on-water private parties and other events, the vessel's chief purpose is to provide scenic public tours. Every Thursday through Sunday, an experienced guide leads groups of 6 or more people on tours such as the nature tour, which showcases lakeside vistas of cliffs and creeks. Another variation on a basic trip includes the sunset tour, which passes a local cave just as the resident gray bats depart for their nighttime hunt.
