None around the New York area but Hogan's Alley in Connecticut
Directions to the Field:
I forgot Use mapquest or yellowpages.
1. Facility- This shop is a good place for all your basic necessity's for paint balling all day. Paint-good grade, food, goggles, guns, barrels and accessories, rentals and all your other items for the day like C02 and air. Their indoor i've personally never played in it but I walked it and was impressed. They have a sup-air indoor field that looks to be a 3 man field that is perfect speed ball which they sometimes have the big X in the middle with some Doritos and other bunkers. In the indoor unlike other places I have been they have an amazing area to store all your equipment for the day. Picnic bench's maybe if the conditions outside arn't too good and a tent and benchs outside for a bright sunny day. In the inside they have a cool chrono also. One more thing that basically I keep on going here for is the great employees they have and the quality of the ownership on the place. The owner of this place is always inside willling to help out whenever you have a problem or need assitance. I had a problem with my air tank and the owner I talked to and let me get a tank for the day even though he said they didn't rent tanks. I personally don't know any other paintball places that the owner is willing to help you out and is working as hard as the employees to seek everyone has a great time at his place.
2. Saftey- THIS IS THE BEST PART OF HORNETS NEST. The saftey netting is always in place for spectators who wana watch not be in fear of being hit by a paintball. The barrel condom rule and goggle rule is a major saftey concern about this place. They ake sure you know to have them on at all times until it is time to test fire with masks on. Chrono is also enforced in the tournys every round to ensure no ones shooting over, I was deeply impressed. Also another thing that makes Hornets Nest the best paintball area in the world is the referees there. Unlike other places that I have been too referees have never been better. If your hit they are toughly to put themselves in danger of being hit to make sure you safely make it to the deadbox without being harmed. I was on the castle course and was out and I was walking away not caring if i got hit or whatnot but he stood right near me and told me we gotta look out for you guys.
3. Having a good time- this is one of the only places I know where if you go up here you will have a good time. It may be a little out of the way but i'll drive and hour and a half for these people. After almost every game the opposite team is right there to congratulate you or say good game. If you did something wrong they tell you and make you a better player in the game of speedball. The courses are also set up so it is a good time. Everytime ive been there they had a differant set up and they all were great with very long thought into every bunker position and angles. Also I believe every Saturday you can go up there and go over drills with the Hornets Nest paintball factory team.
All and all I would highly recomend this place. A ten rating is low for this place if i could I would give it a 100. Its a fun day and good prices, good bunkers and good woodsball.
