Hearing a cacophony of three-shots burst into the air but unable to see where it's coming from, a player decides to force his foes to reveal their positions by waiting patiently in the roots of an uprooted tree. Such natural cover lies throughout the backwoods field at Valley City Paintball, where combatants traverse terrain from wooded hills to a creek bed to stacks of fallen timber. The referees maintain safe conditions for all levels of players, showing guests a safety video and leading a field briefing before supervising games such as Defend the Tree and two-team Card Collector with re-spawn. Overseen by veteran Brian Gunkelman––who served four years in the 82nd Airborne and currently continues service through the Ohio Air National Guard––Valley City's team members allow up to 28 players on the field at a time. They also encourage visitors to take advantage of the natural cover, whether by wearing ghillie suits or painting a watercolor still life during the thick of battle.
At Synergy Woods, visitors can take their fun in two forms: vertical and horizontal. The former refers to the epicenter and highest point of the property, the Summit. Towering 50 feet in the air, this ropes course might be best described as an upright obstacle course, complete with three stories' worth of planks, bridges, and beams to traverse. A 600-foot zipline tethers the Summit to Synergy Woods' horizontal elements—five paintball fields. Spread across 35 acres, the fields host marker-wielding marauders as they storm wooden structures, crawl across grassy clearings, and tiptoe through wooded areas filled with manmade obstacles, including fences and enemy fighters holding very still.
At Three Rivers Paintball in Wexford, you can indulge in the scenic views as you walk or run through the park.

Intense Paintball lives up to its moniker with two distinct battlegrounds—one indoor and one outdoor. The indoor field emulates a long-abandoned warehouse, consisting of an open floor cluttered by formations of barrels and inflatable blocks. Outdoors, trigger fingers get a workout among a 125' x 200' field populated by similar obstacles. To arm its players, Intense Paintball rents out Tippmann markers, paint, and accessories.
