My Brother and I were in Indianapolis for a Church related competition and we had a hotel like 2 miles from Dark Armies and thought we would stop in and see what the Indiana paintball fields are like. Indiana-if all your fields are like this I'm sorry! Move to Ohio where all the real fields are!
We walked in to look around and I guess they were closed or something...you had to walk down some dark hallway and I thought I was going into a bomb shelter or something. No lights until you got downstairs. The owner (I assume he owned the place) *rudely* allowed us to walk the field and if it was nice we would come back and play the next day...we didn't go back. The prices were EXTREMELY high-if the fields here charged that I would've never played paintball! $5 for 50 shots? That's so dumb! I use 50 paintballs in less then 10 seconds with my marker.
I can play all day, get 2,000 rds., all day air, use my own gun (no charge) and field fee for $60- at any field in my area...or even my whole state. $30 if I only get 500 paintballs. If I got it @ this place it would be $100+ to play like I usually do. The costs were totally gouged, the equipment looked like it would fall apart 2 seconds into the first game, and you had to pay a lot to use it, if I brought my B2K it would cost as much as a rental...retarded. I've never seen such high prices...
The field itself was nasty, slippery, and I agree with the people that think they have a disease from going there ...I feel nausious now actually... They kind of have a cool idea with the black lights, but it's still WAY too dark to safely play. Maybe for laser tag, but not Paintball.
Playing was on pavement and they also had a rediculous 220 fps rule. If I set my gun to 220 the pb's would roll out of the barrel.
The guy that we talked to was rude, and the overall atmosphere was creepy...did anyone else feel like there was a drug deal going on in a back room? Also there was a picture board or something like that when I was there with some..."bad language"-not a place to bring the kids to play.
Overall, I give this place a triple negative ten (---10). Since I can only give it a "1" with a capital "W" for WORST, I guess that will have to do.
I hope the owners read these reviews because they won't be keeping buisness long if they don't change some things. That building has the potential to thrive as a paintball buisness but as it is now it's more like a haunted house than a paintball field.
