At Combat Zone Paintball, four obstacle-spattered outdoor fields provide a cardio-packed challenge for beginner to advanced paint slingers. After staff members equip players with a full set of rental equipment and perform an inspirational interpretive dance, teams swarm the battlefield, where bunkers, sandbags, and wooden shelters provide cover from the raining barrage of paint. The facility’s large speedball field ratchets up adrenaline levels with fast-paced, simulated battles, and two scenario fields reward teamwork and superior tactical judgment. Combat Zone Paintball stocks its onsite store with equipment and extra paint for purchase, repairs paintballers’ own equipment onsite, and provides indoor bathrooms for use between games.
The sharpshooters at Pacific Archery Sales outfit hunters with the tools and skills necessary to hit the bull’s-eye of any target, be it an eight-point buck or the doorbell of a friend’s house. Inside Pacific Archery’s pro shop, open seven days a week, experts help customers select bows, arm guards, and targets, as well as additional hunting supplies such as knives and bow-fishing equipment. Students refine their aim during lessons on an indoor range boasting 20-yard lanes and mounted trophies from past hunts.
Breaking in the new Wet'n'Wild Las Vegas water park, The Soggy Jog combines healthy family fun with heat-beating, aquatic entertainment. Obstacles such as the Lazy River Shiver, Slimy Swamp, and Foam Monster break up speedy trots and drench joggers throughout the race, building up to a slip ‘n' slide that sends racers headlong toward the finish line with low-friction aplomb. After the run, guests spend the rest of the day exploring the water park, chasing thrills by hurtling down towering slides or pantsing Poseidon.
Nestled within the gated Los Prados community in the northwest corner of the Las Vegas Valley, Los Prados Golf Course challenges golfers with a track of tight fairways and desert surroundings. Designed by course architect Jeff Hardin in 1987, the course was strategically sculpted to incorporate fast-moving greens and golf carts that shape-shift into jousting steeds.
Before each demanding round, players can practice chipping and putting into the facility’s practice areas, and afterward, they can drop by the restaurant to feast on a menu of steak and seafood. Guests can also visit the pro shop to pick up a new glove or replace clubs that have signed a peace treaty with all golf balls.
A fleet of powerful Honda 250 ATVs growl in the Nevada sunlight, waiting to tear over the hills and skid through the ravines of the Valley of Fire State Park. For three hours, guests careen around 28 miles of scenery, kicking up dust and out pacing jackrabbits on their mini ATVs, before breaking for a provided picnic lunch. Professional guides ensure the safety of helmet-clad guests and sandstone cliffs ensure conversation-starting photographs long after the excursion's end.
A distinguished citizen of the golf world as both a competitor and coach, PGA Pro Mike Davis draws from his decorated career to help fellow golfers on their path to straighter drives and lower scores. A full-time contender in the PGA Tour during the mid-1970s, Mike’s playing career included appearances in three US Opens and one PGA Championship, where the world’s finest golfers compete for trophy jackets made of the finest divots.
After his time as a competitive golfer, Mike made sizeable contributions to the coaching world by publishing instructional articles in numerous publications—including Golf Magazine—and conducting groundbreaking research about the use of video analysis in golf instruction. Today, the passionate pedagogue roams the training ground at Royal Links Golf Club, smoothing out swing imbalances with the help of technological refinements such as V1 video analysis technology, TOMI putting-analysis software, and cybernetic caddies sent from the future to destroy underperforming irons.
