Paintball in Ventura

Backed by a landscape of rolling green hills, paintballers navigate a maze of trenches, only peering above ground with their be-goggled eyes for a careful survey. With 14 battlefields to choose from, paintballing combatants test their mettle while fostering team-building and strategization skills. Players fire off rounds from Tippmann or Kingman air guns while ducking behind rusted, paint-splattered oil drums, stacks of large tires, or the big yellow dump truck left behind by Godzilla's toddler. Each battleground presents a different challenge—the turf airball course is populated by inflatable obstacles, and the woodsball field forces teams to traverse forested grounds made hazardous by wetlands and overgrowth. After a grueling match, players can take refuge in the shaded picnic areas to rest, refuel, or brush up on Sun Tzu's lesser-known text, The War of Art.

In the 1998 remake of Godzilla, a mutant lizard famously destroyed Manhattan—and at Hollywood Sports, visitors can do the same. The 23-acre sports center's paintball fields are each designed to mimic sets from classic movies, ranging from Godzilla to Saving Private Ryan; as they battle with their rented markers, paintball players live out their own twist on those film's battle scenes. Matches occur day and night thanks to the fields' stadium-style lights, which also ensure no one finds themselves in a shootout with a really aggressive bat. In addition to paintball, the park hosts other sports—rock-climbing walls, beach volleyball courts, and BMX racing tracks complement the movie-themed battlefields.

A modern cowboy steps through the swinging doors of the saloon, eyes narrowed, searching for any sign of movement. Though the saloon stands amongst similar wood-hewn structures, this is no Old West town—just a very realistic simulation on one of Stryker Paintball & Airsoft's six paintball fields. Players also compete at airsoft here, on a field populated by bunkers and sheds in an urban militarized zone. While the park welcomes players for open play, it's set up well for parties too, with a clubhouse and private areas that can host up to 300 guests.

Charging through fields of giant spools, over stacks of hay bales, and through winding trenches is a daily occurrence at Ambush Paintball & Airsoft Park. Six scenario theme fields and a tournament-grade turf arena field spread over 40 acres give players of all skills levels a variety of combat zones on which to wage simulated warfare. The City pits players in an unforgiving, paint-or-be-painted war zone consisting of 32 buildings over 40,000 square feet without a protected crosswalk in sight. History serves as the inspiration of the World War I field, where players begin their match inside a WWI–style trench, and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by either successfully defending their base or charging the field to overrun their opponent's trenches. Players of the Arena can practice their tournament skills on a field littered with inflated obstacles seen in professional competitions. Ambush Paintball & Airsoft Park's professional staff is on hand to help players with equipment and technical issues.
