At BattlegroundZ’s indoor paintball facility, masked-and-visored shooters safely bombard each other with reusable silicone balls while negotiating 10,000 square feet of treacherous halls and repositionable obstacles. Depending on the particular skirmish, paintballers strive to accomplish a variety of objectives, from pelting other players to capturing an opposing team’s flag to stealing all the cookies from opponents’ houses. The multihued fray rages four days per week and can be joined by children ages 10 and older. BattlegroundZ ensures that launched projectiles don’t exceed speeds of 250 feet per second, so each hit feels less like a blow to the body and more like a raspberry to the soul.
Open all week, BattlegroundZ’s 5,000-square-foot laser-tag arena pits futuristically equipped opponents against one another in timeless tussles played out within a surreal glow-in-the-dark milieu. As music resounds through the arena and weapons audibly prompt their wielders, players 5 and older try to avoid enemy fire, occasional blasts from the interactive playing field, and the ghosts of Pink Floyd while scoring points by shooting the enemy’s base.
