Phantom Paintball - Good thing that place closed down. Not only was it a safety hazard to then players, but also to anyone walking past the front door.
Well, I'll start with the good. Les is smart and can fix anybody's paintball gun (except for his own rental markers it would seem, but more on that later). Also there is a large variety of fields...as long as you want to play in trees, trenches, and castles. Oh ya, I forgot about the mud pit that has stacks of old tires laying around that's supposed to be a "Tire Town". Well that's the positive.
The first time I played at this place I got sprayed with more paint out of my own gun than I did by any other person. It would have been more effective to just take the paint out of my gun and throw it at the people. At one point CO2 started spraying out of my gun and covered my goggles so I couldn't see. Not that I could see anyways. My goggles fogged up so bad I got lost just walking to the field.
But you won't have to worry about any of these problems because chances are you'll either get lost trying to find the place, or if you do find it you'll probably just lose your car in the mud trying to get there. Last year my friend was driving us out there and as we were driving the car was slowly sinking more and more into the mud. I was afraid we were going to simply sink right under the "road" and never be found again.
But how about that registration building? It was really nice of Les to put up 4 boards of wood to shield people from the wind. Because that's about all it is. Oh ya, and there's also a bowl of water to sh*t in that he calls a toilet. But how can it be a toilet if it doesn't flush? He also tried making it more homely by putting a couch in there. That thing would fetch a good price on the Antiques Road Show if you could ever find it under the pile of cans and bottles that are covering it.
And last but not least I would give you a warning. Get your tetanus shot before you go out there. There's more rusty metal laying around out there than at the IPSCO factory. I once ripped a fender off a rusty car that was laying out there and used it as a shield to storm the castle. Unfortunately that didn't work because I tripped over another piece of rusty metal that was laying in my way. Quite the field...
