More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
I have played all over the U.S. , mostly in Pa . SKirmish , global paintball , jack frost.
etc . They have all been really good solid managed and funs fields , i have been playin at poco loco , for about a year , was thinkin about getting a membership , but the last 3 months i have been playin, it just keeps getting worse and worse .
Review: Upon having things set up and situated before are sat outing , we had to fill out forms
and give a credit card which one was fine. We where told over the phone that we could have are own field for are particular group , since most of us , have been playing for almost 5 years and over . We get up there and i understand each place has to have there own rules , fine , but it was to the point where they take the fun out of the game.
first off we started at 10:am , we had to get guns checked since most of us had are own
equipment , and they wanted the gun to have a rating of 280 velocity, mine was around
285 , and so was a couple of the ppl from my group , so they didnt let it pass , and they cut springs on our guns and turned it down to 260 , at this speed ,you shot a paintball ,
and it dropped after 10 ft , taking in mind we got there an hour early , everything was
very un-organized , so i missed the first 3 rounds of play time , as did the others ,
Then they told us upon arriving that kids 17 and under are 25 dollars , and 18 and over pay 30 , which we had no problem with , then the rude lady at the counter , says, the
ppl that are 17 and under have to pay a fee or tax because they are under-age, which was $7.50 . Then b4 play was to begin they gave us rules , saying that we could not charge ppl , and if we charged another person on the oppoosing team we would be asked to leave, also if we where using paint other than there would be thrown off, the premises , which is understandable, but some ppl did argue , that running around towards ppl and manoveuring is part of the game. Also during game play we couldnt do anything , but sit and wait to get shot , and shooting at other ppl was pointless as since the velocity on the gun was turned down , u could not shot anything beyond 20 ft.
most of the other places have the gun velocity tested at 290 or 300, and the only reason i see to turn down that much is to have us waste paint , so we buy more.
all day i had played 3 games , to me that is not a deal at all , nor did any of are group or other that are experienced that we played against had any type of fun.
also during the game play , the refs seemed to be on top of the hits and misses , but
3 of the refs , gave away key positions , to our team . which made things worse .
Then one of player asked for assitance on the field as the gun , we losing air and just stood there and did nothing , said nothing when help was asked for , but yet if a paintball got too close to them they would stop play for that , but not for a player in need.
we have sent an email about the quality of play and they way we where treated to the owner , and his remarks when u have ur own paintball company then say something to me kid. Also another email entails him saying sarcastically , im glad u spent ur hard earned money. The woman at the front desk displayed vulgar language to are youth.
In turn there where a couple of good fields , caslte etc, most of the others though where to rocky and no where to run . are group spent over 1000 dollars just on paint .
this was the biggest waste of money , We had no problem after leaving , but the owner kept running around asking how did ya like it , and we told him , but yet we emailed him and those where the responses we got , him being all sarcasic , and didnt really care
what the customer had to say.
