I had to get lost 5 times before I could drive there without a problem. If you are comming from the city (Manhattan), your best bet is to get onto the L.I.E and drive all the way to exit 49S. When you get of the highway you will cross one road and then you will have to cross route 110. After you cross 110 you will drive about 30 seconds further until you come to another road which is called PineLawn. Just make a right on that and keep driving down, eventually you will cross a set of train tracks. You will need to eventually make a left on Patton Avenue. Only a tiny little sign displays the name so you need to really drive slowly and keep looking left as you approach some stores/gas stations. I believe it is the first offshoot from Pine Lawn RD (first left), after you find Patton avenue just drive all the way down and you will see the paintball arena.
I went to this field because I could not afford to go to anyother fields like cusions or make the trip to upsate NY.
The staging area works out well, plenty of room for all of your gear. The on hand shop has saved me a couple of times. Not too expensive considering what paintball products go for.
You get every player imaginable, from humble newbies all the way to actual team players. Each day of sessions generally has its own crowd, tuesdays for example is the team night practice - so they are certainly going to be a challenging bunch to play.
Personally I feel that the staff is mixed and varied. Most are decent to very good people in general and do what they need to do, but there have been a couple cases where I have run into the arrogant and rude personas. Nothing anyone can do about that.
The bunker arrangement on the field is always different each time you play.
By going to their "sister" supply store you can generally get some buy one get one free admission tickets as well as free play tickets to be used at the arena.
Techs working behind the equipment counters have no problem giving me new O-rings for my co2 upon request as well as usage of certain tools and the like. A very nice gesture on their part I think.
I personally believe that playing in the woods was more fun but now I can say that playing indoors and playing outdoors are two different kinds of fun. I enjoy comming here with my friends and having a great time. Without this establishment, I would not be as big of a paintball fan as I am today.
