Five Towns Mini Golf, Batting Range & Wild West Target Paintball offers a lively outdoor haunt where patrons contend with themselves and the laws of physics in a trinity of sphere-based recreation. A labyrinth of brick-ensconced emerald corridors puts putting proficiency to the test in each 18-hole round of mini golf, where steady strokes prevail against shaky hands. Bold contours form breaks more difficult to read than a fossilized Dostoevsky anthology. Each guest also receives five batting-cage tokens, good for 50 hardball or 80 wiffle-ball pitches taken within Five Towns' circular batting range. Automatic pitchers fire baseball facsimiles at four different speeds, topping out at 80 miles per hour, and softball swingers can knock spheroids served up in three varieties of arced pitches or a blazing fast-pitch setting. Two-dimensional denizens of frontier lore populate the Wild West Target Paintball shooting area, where sharpshooters outdraw bandana-faced outlaws and paintballs add chromatic décor to the façades of a central saloon, jailhouse, and Buffalo Bill's freshly buffed fingernails.
