When Mike "Pev" Peverill?s teamed up with his brother Todd to build Pev's Paintball from the ground up, his driving force was to grant guests the chance to test their sense of strategy and adventure. This goal is achieved each day on his park's 48 acres of land boasting 12 different themed playing fields dappled with huts, log stacks, and other obstacles. The park is open to paintballers of all skill levels, and all customers receive an orderly safety briefing before they begin play, much like the gentlemanly crumpet and tea parties that prefaced each battle in the Revolutionary War.
Additionally, to ensure that grumbling stomachs don?t give hiding spots during paint-slinging battles, Pev?s offers a fully stocked and licensed onsite concession offers sustenance for battle-weary players.
The SoVA Wine Trail lets groups experience its 12 participating wineries through food and wine tasting events, aiming to introduce visitors to the finest vintages crafted by local residents. The events provide the opportunity to chat personally with winemakers and vineyard owners, pairing their bottled beverages with bites from local restaurants. On the east side, wine lovers stop at Molliver Vineyards, which is located on a property that dates back to the 1700s, and Bright Meadows Farm, a winery that operates out of a 117-year-old barn. On the west side, the Brooks Mill Winery doles out fruit wines, and the White Oak Mountain Meadery lets visitors taste the drink our ancient ancestors preferred to drink when they ran out of Mountain Dew.
Whether the end result is a colorfully painted canvas or a glass-fusion art piece, Clay Cafe gives visitors the tools and materials they need to express their creativity. Customers can beautify all kinds of bisque pottery shapes with their choice of non-toxic, food-safe glazes, before turning them over to the staff to finish and fire within about a week. Clay Cafe also offers opportunities to create a mosaic out of fused glass or adorn a canvas or t-shirt with an original design in paint.

Every Halloween, the thick woods and playing fields at Pev's Paintball Park suffer an unholy infestation. Zombies, ghosts, and demonic clowns pop out from behind every tree, and these new inhabitants know the area by one name: Terrorville. Trespassers brush the hay from their jeans as they disembark from wagons, unaware of the dangers that await them on Walk of Terror. Insane criminals and cursed spirits cry out from the shadows, warning of the torments that lie ahead. The dead pop free from their caskets, ghouls rattle chain link fences, and gross cobwebs get in everyone's mouths.
Others may choose to fight back, readying paintball markers to dispense with the undead hordes at the Zombie Paintball Shoot. The kid-friendly Monster Encounter tasks players to zap as many hiding monsters as they can with laser-tag guns, and the Zombie Rumble tests visitors to protect their flag belts from cold, grasping hands.
