Always a good time — paintball is a great activity for parents and children over the age of eight. Nemacolin offers target paintball for $40 per person where you can perfect your aim of shooting at stationary targets and practicing your sniper skills. Four hundred rounds of paint are included with your gun rental. Having too much fun? Don’t worry. Additional paintballs can be purchased.

Once you have mastered your skills, take it to the woods for our outdoor combat paintball. Organized by The Peak staff, this thrilling combat atmosphere will have you on the edge of your toes the entire time as your team fights to dress the other team in a canvas of colored paint. On that note, be sure to leave your favorite white clothes behind as the paint may stain clothing. Games are $100 per person and last for two hours. A 24-hour advanced reservation and a minimum of four people are required per team. 

Wildlife Adventures

Take a walk on the wild side and explore the wildlife adventures offered across the resort. Bringing together animals from all corners of the world, Wildlife Adventures provides interactive education and live animal programs. 

Forget the zoo! Hop in your car, bike, or walk the trails, and visit the Wildlife Habitats which feature Billy Goat Mountain, Iranian red sheep, buffalo, tigers, lions, wolves, and more. Nemacolin is home to smaller exotic and domestic animals such as a kinkajou, silver foxes, a striped skunk, rabbits, and reptiles, just to name a few.

Level up your adventurous side with an animal encounter, trail ride, safari tour, or meet-and-greet experience. Be sure to check out the Big Cat Encounter which features Bengal tigers, African lions, and a mountain lion. Each of our big cats was born in captivity, and many of them are rescues who once lived in other places — they are wild animals that our trained keepers work closely with to make sure they are happy in their habitat. 

During your encounter, you will learn about the various behavioral, intellectual, and enrichment training we share with the cats. You’ll hear insider information about their personalities, and you’ll be able to observe the carnal nature of these creatures during a feeding. The Big Cat Encounter lasts 45-60 minutes and costs $156 per person. Please wear appropriate attire and no open-toed shoes. Guests under 18 years old must be accompanied by a guardian.

Climbing Wall

Face your fear of heights, gain confidence, and conquer this three-sided structure which offers a range of route options to suit all skill levels. The climbing wall costs $19.50 per person which includes taxes and gratuity — and a helmet for safety.

Kids Indoor Pool

Need a break from the great outdoors? Open all year round, the Kids Indoor Pool offers swimming fun for the whole family in a 3’ deep pool. Conveniently located in the Kids Club area near PJ’s Ice Cream Parlor, your kids can splash around and then enjoy an after-swim treat.
