At Swings-N-Things' Paintball Village, marker-wielding warriors 10 and older sprint across a war-torn city, taking cover behind bunkers formed by burned out cars and crumbling homes. After donning protective eyewear and force fields of confidence, players fill hoppers with 200 paint-filled spheres to blast at their opponents. If ammo runs low, determined players can purchase additional paintballs from the park's on-site store in increments of 500 ($20+), 1000 ($35+), or 2,000 ($60+). Unlimited air refills keep weapons fueled and balloon animals far from malnourished. Players can keep their clothes monochromatic with an optional jumpsuit rental ($5).
Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park
Happy shouts float across Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park, whipping out of the mouths of captains ricocheting off one another in bumper boats and drivers speeding around the tracks in go karts. The satisfying clunk of colorful spheres falling into holes on the mini-golf course perks up ears in the sprawling complex of indoor and outdoor attractions. Patrons frolic across the park’s two outdoor mini-golf courses before practicing their aim in a laser shootout game, and children ages 10 and younger scramble their socked feet over slides and rides inside the Kids Korner indoor play area. Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park is easily accessible from the area's major highways.
