Players at OSG Paintball might forget that it's all a game. While other paintball arenas litter their fields with leftovers from factories?empty spools of cable, hollow barrels, battered hamster wheels?all nine playing fields at OSG are intricately designed to immerse players into another world. At the 25,000-square-foot Empire Castle, opponents scramble around the perimeter of the enclosed town, supported by a 1/8-mile-long second story walkway. At the Pirate Cove, a ship's three masts stretch into the air, providing cover from foes hunkered down in the lighthouse or taking a nap in the lifeboat. Players tumble into deep gullies and climb into a replica scorpion tank at the HALO village, modeled after the popular video game series. Periodically throughout the year, the fields play host to massive themed games where players can pretend they're characters in their favorite video game, apocalyptic television show, or Charles Dickens novel.
O'neil Cinemas brings the magic back to watching movies, immersing film buffs and families in walls of enriching digital sound and sharp, high-definition images. Moviegoers settle into comfy seats in tiered, stadium-seating theaters before the show begins. Films in 3D bring summer blockbusters face-to-face with audience members, while D-Box-motion seats translate on-screen explosions into realistic rumbles and movements through the seat cushions.
Since moving from Portsmouth to Dover in 2008, the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire has educated and entertained more than 280,000 children and families from New England and around the world. Devoted to sharing arts, sciences, and cultural experiences with families from all walks of life, the museum houses 16 static exhibits highlighting local art and literature as well as interactive science displays. In addition to daily learning visits, the museum hosts birthday parties, and special events throughout the year teach valuable skills, such as spotting trick candles before blowing.
