This facility is definitely one of a kind.
Hours: Open 7 days, 12 to 12, even after-hours on Fri/Sat 1am-5am? Day session is 12-6pm, Night session runs 8pm-12am. They take a cleanup break between 6pm-8pm to prep for the night session. That's a lot of paintball, anytime you virtually want. I like the weekend after-hours sessions, cause when the rest of the city is sleeping, I get a group of friends that can actually do something on the weekend rather than going home.
Prices: This facility has the same prices as the others around it, unlike some of the reviews posted. In fact, their equipment prices are lower than that of what I can find on the Internet! If you look at the value that you are getting out of this facility and compare it with other places, the prices are more than reasonable. Now, there might be a place that may offer a $5 admission around, but honestly you are not going to get the value that you get from this giant facility... you get what you pay for.
Fields: This facility has a large variety of fields, from a very well designed Hyperball field, that resembles woods playing, Speedball, two Airball fields, and of course their two indoor warehouses where some of my favorite urban games are played in.
Games: Unique games, from SWAT/Convicts, Mission Impossible, Nuclear Meltdown which is a crazy and challenging game!. They of course also play the traditional center flag played in tournaments.
Rentals: They rent compressed air T98s as rentals which are more accurate than Co2 and you can even gage when you are close to being out of air unlike Co2. Also there are other packages and upgrades available including a sniper barrel, or even the Tippmann A5, or the ION paintball gun which of course is tournament grade for some serious damage.
Tournaments: Every Wednesday Night Session, is tourney night with a prize purse for the winners. This is the cheapest priced tournament I have ever seen, with cash prizes! Can't be beat, sometimes you see some incredible talent there with many teams from all around, and many spectators. I have seen some incredible action for just the price of a normal admission. Where else do you get tournament action, for admission prices, and cash prizes?!?
FREE PIZZA Yes they even have FREE pizza for the customers. On busy times, they even have a hot foods vendor. Coke and snack machines are also on site.
SWAT Training The Orlando SWAT and some of Orlando's police force use this facility for its indoors, for their training, since it most closely resembles the situations and urban environments that they are challenged with.
Generally this is a happening facility that is very popular and well known in Orlando, and all of Florida for that matter. I have seen many facilities come and go, but this one has remained for 15 years, so they must be doing something right! They also make constant changes and improvements, so the place is always changing. The outdoor airball fields are changed weekly.
Rentals/Admission prices are for all day and night session play, so you only pay once for up to 10 hours of play per day! Now is'nt that a great deal!
Another nice thing about this facility is that there almost is, always somebody to play with, and weekends are great!
Bottom line, there is great value, this is a serious operation where they spent a lot of money on, with a great staff that are actually paid a salary in real American dollars, and not paintballs. Unlike other facilities that are built on cow pastures, or simple grass fields with inflatable bunkers, this place has a giant COSTCO building, with a good number of good sized outdoor fields.
For all of the above reasons I rate this facility: 9/10.
Dispute: Unfortunatly most of what this guy says isnt true. The prices are way to much to handle i had to pat 100 bucks and i already had my gun and air! the feilds are good i will admit to that, but the refs dont care what goes on and i paid full admition and only got to play 4 games in 4 hours, the refs do not care about that players. the people who play their is mostly noobs since this paintball feild is the most publiciesed. Also the biggest thing that kills me is that i would bet that this guy works by op or is sponcered by them
Just to dispute the dispute I played there yesterday and I thought it was a great field. It's been a while but it's still good. Headbanger, you must work for some other field in the area because you sir are not conducting yourself well.
Been playing at this field for a long time. Have to say nothing has changed. the refs dont really ref, and the prices are higher then some other places. I was very surprised they actually put the money in and made some changes to their store front. But if this place would use some money on other facets of their fields and refs then its would be a better place all around. They do have an advantage in that they offer night play very late on weekends, but honestly those who have been in the sport for years now know the rep that OP carries.
