Fly through the air as you fire at targets, jump away from a real fireball, and even detonate an explosion! By the time you leave the Stunt Ranch you'll be ready to star in your own adventure. Although you have to make reservations for classes or camps, the paintball portion of the ranch is open to the public on the weekend. Duck behind a crashed car and aim your paintball gun at the paintball machine gun towers, then duck and roll for cover as someone tries to get you from a sniper's nest. Get ready for thrills!
