Panels of drywall form an intricate labyrinth of walls and rooms inside Xtreme Tactics' 14,000-square-foot airsoft arena. Opposing teams softly tread through the warren, taking cover behind walls and shooting their foes through windows. Their weapons of choice are full-scale replicas of real firearms, whose plastic BBs help sideline adversaries and move teams closer to completing tactical, war-like scenarios. As real as the battles get, not all matches are grounded in reality—in the past, the arena has played host to games based on terrifying fantasies, such as the zombie apocalypse or Keebler elves going on strike. Helmets, masks, and tactical vests protect players during games, and when the final blow has been served, they can restock on guns and equipment from Xtreme Tactics' massive pro-shop.
In Vertical Adventures’ 5,000-square-foot climbing gym, visitors scale colourful walls or traverse the bouldering gym, backed by ground support from staffers and automatic belayers. Climbers of all levels can hone their technique by practicing independently with the gym’s rental equipment or through an array of courses for children and adults. Instructors teach belaying, rappelling, and other basics, along with more advanced self-rescue techniques such as always carrying a fold-up helicopter. The gym also hosts birthday parties for groups of six or more, where a dedicated staff member helps guests to familiarize themselves with equipment and optimize their safety.
U-Puttz Black Light Miniature Golf reimagines the prehistoric world, creating a scenario in which dinosaurs were hit with neon fluorescent fairy dust instead of a giant meteor. Visitors perfect putts across its 18 glow-in-the-dark holes passing by dinosaurs, deep-sea dwelling creatures, and craggy volcanoes. Inside glow party rooms, kids celebrate birthdays, snacking on burgers and hot dogs from the on-site eatery and practicing their reflexes on arcade games.
