Wooded areas filled with abandoned automobiles, empty houses, and overturned barrels might evoke the set of a gritty war movie, except for one detail: they’re all covered in colorful splotches. These are some of the sights on the six unique fields at GTF Paintball, which host colorful mock battles on their expansive outdoor property. Whether participants stage urban combat on The Houses, or take to The Village to engage in fast-paced rounds, they can lose themselves in settings that simulate both real-life battle and pranks played by expressionist painters. No matter what the scenario, GTF places an emphasis on safety by chronographing markers and requiring goggles in all playing areas.
At Nassau Bowling Center, bowlers shoot for the stars—specifically, the rainbow-hued star mural that covers the wall above the pins. The scene adds an extra festive touch to the 20-lane bowling alley, where bowlers track their progress on automatic scoring systems, and kids 10 and under play with bumpers. There's fun to be had besides bowling, too. Visitors test their dexterity on the arcade's air hockey games and claw machines, and nosh on treats from the snack counter, where the specials rotate daily.
