Some students might be totally content just quietly bumming around campus all day. But sometimes it’s nice to get up, go out and be a little destructive.
If you’re looking for something a little more exciting than a lazy day in Milton, check out some extreme possibilities in the Greater Boston area.
Boston Paintball in Chelsea, Mass., is a great way to blow off some steam. I’ve been playing paintball for years, and there’s no better way to relieve stress than playing paintball with a bunch of friends. They offer marker (gun) and equipment rentals, and have a variety of indoor and outdoor fields to play on. They also have an insane pro shop and the fields are awesome.
If the sting of battle doesn’t suit you, or you’re looking for something closer to campus, then maybe defying gravity is your cup of tea. Skyzone indoor trampolines, right down the street in the Reedville neighborhood of Boston, might be perfect for you. They offer a unique array of different playing courts for trampoline basketball and regular trampoline sections for the average jumper. They even have trampolines on the wall to bounce from!
The only downside is that you need to fill out a waiver, as do most places with high-risk involvement. Don’t let that stop you, though…this place looks like a blast. And what’s the worst thing that could happen with a trampoline?
So, get off campus and find some extreme fun. You never know where your next great adrenaline rush will come from.
