Founded by a professional player and made up of four fields, Route 40 Paintball Park is the perfect place to get serious about the sport. The referees kickoff every splatter session with a safety orientation to ensure everyone is playing fair and by the rules. Once the competition begins, the ref makes judgment calls when necessary. And players can look the part, too, by renting camouflage jumpsuits to help them better blend in while they duck behind barricades. Of course, the primary objective here is fun, so the facility welcomes first-time shooters, and encourages guests to bring snacks.
Across Paintball Adventure Park's 36 acres and 8 fields, adrenaline-packed moments occur every Saturday and Sunday. Their three woodsball fields present a jungle-warfare-like environment, whereas the Village centers around a two-story wooden castle with elevated bridges, watchtowers, and paint-breathing dragons. Other battlegrounds challenge players' tactical skills as they maneuver through obstacles to flank the opposition and take the hill, or slip through the tight quarters of the six airball fields. Before battles, paintballers can also gear up at the shop with everything from paintball markers to protective gear.
Warriors duck and weave through rainbow-colored obstacles, huge wooden spools, and thickets of trees, all to evade opposing players shooting at them with high-powered paint markers. The farm grounds transform into Torrid Paintball Sports' battlefield, where players engage in scenario games and tournaments with the latest markers and gear.
Before entering the fray, players at Tactical Airsoft Arena need to suit up. They don chest protectors, full face masks, and padded gloves?all necessary shields against BBs flying from replica weapons. Inside the 3,600-square-foot arena, plywood walls create nine different rooms and multiple hallways, a network of hiding places and ambush zones. These walls are modular, and every season the staff rearranges them so that players stay on their toes and the resident minotaur doesn't escape.
At Allstar Family Amusement Complex, Go-karts race around a circular track or hug the twists and turns of a grand prix?style course. Lasers zip throughout a 4,000-square-foot black-lit laser-tag arena, and blips and bleeps sound from an arcade complete with a potpourri of video and redemption games. Towering windmills don't obstruct holes in one on Allstar Family Amusement Complex's two 18-hole miniature golf courses. Instead, babbling brooks and verdant trees surround natural obstacles such as sharp turns and rock patterns. Mini golf is one of many attractions encompassed on the year-round fun park.
