For the last 10 years, Prairie Storm Paintball's staging area, racks of guns and gear stand ready for friendly battles across a large indoor and eight outdoor paintball fields. Indoors, technicolor orbs splatter across wood walls as players hide behind shelter and try to covertly vacuum the drapes. Outdoor fields such as the Barnyard surround paint slingers in open fields and wooded terrain; abandoned vehicles and empty barrels sprinkle the ground at the aptly named Nuke Town field. To round out the battleground offerings, a speedball field offers solid cover instead of the more commonly seen inflatable air bunkers. The friendly staff equips players with Draxxus paint, which uses vegetable-based ingredients that are friendly to the environment. They also host outdoor paintball, indoor re-ball, airsoft, mini-paintball, and nerf parties and World War II reenactments.

As half of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” duo Brooks & Dunn, Ronnie Dunn has played everywhere from the arena to the rodeo, beer joints to casinos. His Texas twang and electric guitar chronicle 20 years of wide-ranging exploits on his self-titled debut solo album. After he and Kix Brooks played their last show together in 2010, Dunn set to work as the new album's sole producer and main songwriter. "This time around, I baked it,” he said. “I baked it and cooked it, and cooked it again.” His signature rowdy honky-tonk kicks through in the single “Let the Cowboy Rock,” and the poignant ballad of forgiveness, “Bleed Red," urges listeners to “turn the anger into water / let it slip through our hands.”

When the Regina Pats slid out onto the ice in 1917, their sweaters read “The Patricias,” in honor of Princess Patricia of Connaught, and they had little tolerance for opponents who dared giggle at the name. Of the original teams in that early era, the Pats have had the last laugh, as they are the only ones still standing, making them North America’s oldest Junior Hockey franchise. Since the days of horse-drawn zambonis, the Pats have taken several championships. They won the Memorial Cup in 1925, 1930, and 1974, and also took the Western Hockey League Championship in 1974 and 1980. In addition to preparing more than 100 players for careers in the NHL, the Pats have also sent the most athletes to play for Canada in the World Junior Hockey Championships.

Flashing lights and whirring sounds fill the 5,000-square-foot arcade floor at Wonderland Entertainment Centre, setting a whimsical background as guests engage in classic gaming staples. The facility eschews traditional coin or token based arcade play, instead using an hourly, all-you-can-play rate. A retro arcade experience, including early favorites, driving, and dancing games await thumbs and feet. For a more classic mode of recreation, players can flaunt their cue skills on one of three pool tables, shoot skeeball, basketball, or even "Silver Ball" pinball.

The bowling centre, which touts itself as Regina’s largest, hosts five-pin bowling in a festive setting. Along with bumper rails that keep the ball in play for kids, new bowlers, and physicists studying bounce effects, the centre sports glow-in-the-dark lanes for nighttime bowling battles. Bowling shoes, dubbed this year’s up-and-coming accessory at Paris Fashion and Anaerobic Exercise Week, are included with this Groupon for up to six people (adults $2 per pair, kids $1). Spend an hour at Nortown taunting your friends and taking out frustrations on a group of hapless pinheads. Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battling, bowling has zero barriers to entry and a shallow learning curve.

At Circus Gatti, exotic animals, hilarious showmen, and thrilling daredevils delight families in an outrageous three-ring spectacle. During the two-hour show, elephants Tika and Patti stomp to Bollywood choreography, and the Liberty Ponies knock their synchronized hooves under the deft direction of Miss Genevieve, who conducts with a baton made of sugar cubes. The Great Oscar soars through the heavens with nothing but an oversize rope and bones infused with helium, with The Queen Bee delivering further aerial thrills while fluttering beside her hive in an atmospheric ballet. Pipin and Poppy elicit laughs with their comedy routine, and Miss Elizabeth induces awe with a contortion and balancing act in which she fires an arrow with her legs and feet while hanging upside down. After the show, those who opted for the meet and greet will brush elbows with the circus stars, snapping photos and asking questions regarding their skill, bravery, and how to construct a Q-tip big enough to clean an elephant's ear.
