Surviving in the wilderness can be challenging—especially during the zombie apocalypse. But some of Wilderness Survival's courses prepare students for just this situation, incorporating practical lessons into a simulated battle between zombies and humans, complete with optional paintball warfare. Other courses focus purely on the practical aspects of survival, such as building a shelter, finding wild edible plants, purifying water, and learning how to roundhouse kick the wings off pesky mosquitoes.
With players engaged in games on several fields, safety is of utmost importance to the staff at Capital Combat Zone. At least two referees keeps an eye on the action on the playing field, ensuring no one breaks the rules or engages in unsafe conduct, such as trying to eat the paintballs. These fields offer plenty of nooks and crannies for players to hide in, such as empty spools, castle-shaped turrets, and abandoned bunkers. Click here for hours of operation.
Encompassed by tall, spindly trees, players hunker down in wooden castles and slink along fence posts hoping the crunch of leaves underfoot doesn’t give them away.

Before taking the fields, visitors can stop by the pro shop or shake the rust from trigger fingers at the fully netted shooting range. The battlegrounds are also available for birthday parties and team-building events.

The Cooper's Cave Games & Paintball outdoor battlefield sprawls over 40 multicolored acres, giving players ample room to elude an enemy or stage a smattering ambush.

The western town field simulates the old west with wooden shacks, abandoned carriages, and grizzled prospectors, and the more martial competition fields acquaint one's inner Andrew Jackson with one's inner Jackson Pollock. Paint pelters go au natural in Cooper's wooded playing field, assaulting unsuspecting comrades from behind logs and trees, and sneaky splatterers execute sniper-style hits or gauge enemy positions from the guarded hideouts in Cooper's fort-filled field.
