Flagswipe Paintball's 20,000 square feet of indoor space hide mask-clad players behind 49 bunkers and numerous padded pillars. Its green-turf floor is padded with an inch of polyfoam, ensuring that players can tumble, leap, and slide without hurting themselves. Outside, a woods-ball field exhibits a Vietcong theme, where jeeps, tanks, and villages of huts shield combatants, and watch towers allow players to let down their long, golden locks for teammates to climb. Along with traditional paintball, the facility also hosts airsoft and laser-combat matches.
Synergy Paintball aims to be a way of giving back to the community by offering a safe place to have fun and expend pent-up energy. On a given day, lively bands of birthday, bachelor, and bachelorette parties can be found swarming the grounds amid the whispery noise of paintballs cruising through the fresh air. It's here where teams engage in fun competition, regardless of age, size, or skill level. When the park isn't busy entertaining armies of thrill-seekers, they also play host to United States military reserves tactical training, an exercise that fills the park with humvees and transport vehicles before they begin mock Medevac evacuations. To further build on its reputation, Synergy Paintball hosts organizations such as the United Way, American Cancer Society, and St. Judes Children's Research while longtime supporting Local AR.
Happy shouts float across Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park, whipping out of the mouths of drivers racing around go-kart tracks and captains ricocheting off one another in bumper boats. The satisfying clunk of colorful spheres falling into holes on the mini-golf course perks up ears in the sprawling complex of indoor and outdoor attractions. Go-kart drivers whiten their knuckles behind the wheel of 9-horsepower Honda engines, tearing through a quarter mile of twists and turns on the Grand Prix track as if it were a high-school principal’s lawn. Alternatively, patrons frolic across the park’s two outdoor mini-golf courses before practicing their aim in a laser shootout game, and children ages 10 and younger scramble their socked feet over slides and rides inside the Kids Korner indoor play area. Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park is easily accessible from the area's major highways.
Hearing a cacophony of three-shots burst into the air but unable to see where it's coming from, a player decides to force his foes to reveal their positions by waiting patiently in the roots of an uprooted tree. Such natural cover lies throughout the backwoods field at Valley City Paintball, where combatants traverse terrain from wooded hills to a creek bed to stacks of fallen timber. The referees maintain safe conditions for all levels of players, showing guests a safety video and leading a field briefing before supervising games such as Defend the Tree and two-team Card Collector with re-spawn. Overseen by veteran Brian Gunkelman––who served four years in the 82nd Airborne and currently continues service through the Ohio Air National Guard––Valley City's team members allow up to 28 players on the field at a time. They also encourage visitors to take advantage of the natural cover, whether by wearing ghillie suits or painting a watercolor still life during the thick of battle.
