The arena is pretty cheap to get into. The staging area is rather large and comfortable. The bathrooms are dirty and broken. They are too slow to refill the tanks and to chrono the guns. The indoor speed is also too slow. It is 250fps, paint was bouncing off people. The refs are all inexperienced cocky players - I actually saw a ref wipe one guys mask and send him back in. The guy in the front taking the money was the only nice guy. The paint they sell is horrible. It is waxy paint that is full of dimples - way to expensive for the quality.
We will not be returning to play at the arena again, at least not until they get some better quality paint and refs.
On a side note, The pizza was just nasty. It made my team sick.
No place is perfect, but you are slamming one of the most decent friendly and inexpensive fields in NY. I personally think you created this logon id just to slam this field. Let me guess? your a cousins regular. These guys don't deserve a review this bad. You left out all the positive BYOP (who doesn't like that) Most indoor are less than 300fps
come on don't be a fool do the right thing stop being a jealous
Im not sure about the bathrooms because I havent gone in there in the 30 something times Ive been there for some reason... but the pizza is pretty good, the paint is definetely overpriced, alot of the reds are idiots but the guy taking the money is pretty cool. Some of the refs are good but alot of them should really just shut up, I was there with some friends and one of my friends accidentally shot a ref since theres way too many of them (like 6 on the straight field) and the refs get all pissed next game saying they got lit up and that we think that this is a game or something (IT IS! ITS PAINTBALL) and that if we shot any more refs we would be out for the current game and the next round. Other then idiot condescending refs that have no idea what they're doing, force the players tomove up all the time, and complain when they get shot even though they deliberately dont use the shields that are provided to them as refs, The place is really good and is worth every penny (except for the paint)
HiVi indoors is BYOP too, the staff is 1000000 times more friendly than everyone at arena combined, it's the same price to get into, the refs know what they're doing and don't treat you like dirt, the players are friendly and skilled, and the place is run by a great guy named James who everyone loves.
Arena deserves the bad reviews it gets, maybe you just haven't seen enough of the negatives to feel the same way as us yet.
