Stacked logs, stumps, and tangled thickets make good hiding spots--or are they obstacles? Clad in camouflage and goggles, players navigate that question while stalking the woods at The Paintball Asylum. They grasp paintball guns during color-splattering rounds of the game, which resembles a grittier Capture the Flag. Extra supplies for the matches are available at The Paintball Asylum's pro shop, and the space accommodates birthday and bachelor parties, as well as corporate team-building events.
