Review: After reading the other reviews of this site i decided to post my own because their seems to be an awful lot of negative things to say about PAG. I'm not a paintball expert by any means, i've gone about 3 times before. As a beginner i'll tell you about my experience here.

Safety: At the initial "briefing" about the rules and what not they were very strict about googles and gun plugs, but after that it was kind of hit or miss. The refs didn't seem to pay much attention to it, but i was part of a good group that played responsibly, so we had no problems here. I can see however, that if a bunch of immature teenagers ran loose things could get bad. But i have no complaints. The chronograph area is shot at 2 targets. Yes it is setup near the staging area and behind the speedball area, but not once did i ever feel in remote danger while i was in either. You'd have to be purposely shooting somewhere else for anyone to be in danger.

Fields: The woodsball fields all were great. Although i didn't get to play on all of the fields, the ones we played on were great. I didn't have any problems with bugs, but it is November afterall. Only problem i had was thorn bushes, and lots of them, lol.

Hours: We arrived at 12:45 and got started at 1:30. It did take a little time to get organized and ready to go, but part of that problem was part of our team arriving late, can't blame them for that. Signing in, payment, and picking up/dropping off rentals was very smooth and easy.

Prices: $35 to rent you equipment, $10 if bring your own. Not bad at all really. But you can't bring your own paint and have to buy theres. I suppose that's not a big deal, but for those of us on tighter budgets it would have been nice. Although i'm not sure about what a great price is for a case of paint, they charged $60 for 2000 rounds. I split that with 3 other guys and we all ended up with 700 rounds for the afternoon. We ran out before the last game was fully done, but it wasnt by much. So if you can share it cuts your cost down alot. The only thing i don't understand about the prices is the "group rate" They said you needed 15 people to get the group rate which we had, but we still paid the same as walk on's, so i'm not sure about that. I suppose i'll look into it for next time.

Service: They use Tippman Custom 98's (yea i had to look that up) and they seemed to be everything i'd expect from a rental; tough and reliable, but not of the best quality. Accuracy wasn't very good, but now i'm more inclined to get my own marker and become more involved in paintball, so maybe it was a good thing? I was having some trouble with my rental and the owner cleaned out my barrel and checked my CO2 and got me back on track. All of the guys in the "shop" seemed very friendly and willing to help out us beginners. I talked to the owner briefly about the setup and hours/prices/dates for future engagements and he answered all my questions.

Staff/Refs: Staff was very nice and the Refs did a fine job. They weren't the most organized by any means. (somehow i don't think it's a good idea to use ""go in 5 seconds"" as a round starter) We ended up coming back to the start several times because we weren't sure if we were live or not. That was kinda annoying, but once the game was on, everything was fine.

Facilities: Basic describes it pretty well. But basic is all i need really. My only complaint about "basic" is the muddy road to get there. Some of those holes are big enough to swallow cars and getting stuck wouldn't have been hard to do. They should fill some of that in/get gravel or something. Anyway, a bunch of picnic tables and the wooden shop plus a portapotty. Next time i go (which won't be long since i had so much fun) i may bring some tailgating gear and rest some more. And 75 cents for a soda can is NOT something to cry about. Jeez, that's cheap guys, go to hershey park and then you'll see what extortion is.

In conclusion, my group of 16 people had an absolute blast here. It wasn't very crowded, the courses were fine, the equipment did it's job; as long as you play safe and fair you'll have a good time. I'm looking forward to my next round. Just have to let all my bruises heal first, some of those guys are brutal!
