Paintball Action Games' 18,000-square-foot facility accommodates players aged 10 and older, who shield themselves in coveralls and goggles for indoor games. Participants race across the tournament field, dodging paintballs as they crouch behind inflatables and aim their semi-auto markers at unsuspecting opponents. In between bouts, a pro shop with certified techs helps visitors stock up on markers, apparel, and accessories such as the same pellets Michelangelo used to paint the Sistine Chapel. Meanwhile, the picnic area hosts guests after their contests, where they can grill up on a feast on barbecues.

Each armed with his or her own phaser, players aged 6 and up swarm the smoke-filled Laser City indoor playing field on the prowl for victims. They also hide behind narrow, glow-painted pillars and black-lit partitions, trying to avoid the wrong end of a laser ambush or wet-willy attack themselves. Such is the scene inside Laser City every Thursday through Sunday, when players strap on an LED vest and accept their mission.
Teams at Sniper Paintball would do well to consider their tactics before heading onto the fields, as each comes with its own set of strategic difficulties and opportunities. Take, for instance, Tyranny Castle, a 15,000-square-foot stronghold surrounded by a towering outer wall. To storm the front would end in a definite splattering, as the entrance forms a chokepoint directly in the crosshairs of those hiding in the castle’s sniper tower. However, the field is surrounded on all sides by trenches and bunkers that, if properly used, could turn the seemingly impenetrable fortress into a pressure cooker for the defenders. This strategic importance extends to the sparse shacks and cars of Peasantville, the close-quarters hallways of the indoor field, and the geometric cover and giant spools on the speedball field.
Hockez Edge transforms hockey players into experienced players by having them master skating, shooting, passing, and stick-handling fundamentals, all without stepping onto the ice. Well, at least not traditional ice. The facility actually utilizes a special synthetic ice that offers more resistance than real ice and is designed to make hockey players work harder to skate fast or complete a crisp pass. That way, those tasks should seem easier when they take to the rink.
Training incorporates a radar gun and a stick-handling lane to develop hands that are quick enough to replace a moving puck with a jelly donut without anyone noticing. Hockez Edge also features a special treadmill equipped with moving synthetic ice.
Allied Paintball is a rare type of field—watching the combat is almost as fun as participating. That's thanks to the cinematic style of the arena with themed zones designed so thoughtfully that they almost look like movie sets. In some, you'll find real school buses; in others, sinister graveyards, or life-like military tanks that players can duck behind. The combat takes on an added touch of realism thanks to every player's militaristic, ultra-safe, head-to-toe combat gear, and the arsenal of cutting-edge paintball guns.
