Period of
Field Use:
6 months
Last There: December 10th, 2006
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Outlaw Paintball-It's only indoor and is closing soon, so I cant really compare it.
Pevs @ AG Leesburg--Much more professional and with a larger selection of fields. Airball is rarely open, however.
Review: I have been going to Outlaw for the past few months and like it a fair amount. The reffs are very friendly and easy to get along with. It is also fairly cheap ($15 for all day air and play) and they allow you to bring your own paint, which is a huge plus.

As far as the fields go, they don't really have much to offer, but what they have gets the job done. They have one Hyperball field which is pretty terrible, but they only use it for first time players, so it's not a huge deal. They also have a few woodsball fields which are alright. There are some pretty cool bunkers on a few of them. As for airball, I was quite impressed. They have an Xball field as well as an NPPL field. They are both pretty good and the only real problem with them is the lack of grass in some crucial spots (it hurts to superman into a dirt snake).

The only real gripe I have with the field is the lack of safety precausions. Safety is not prioritized as much as it should be, and players really end up having to pay attention to what's going on a lot. The reffs make sure that players have their masks on while playing, but commonly their are markers without covers in dead zones and at the parking lot. They also allow barrel plugs which are not particularly safe. I'm not saying that they do not try to be safe. Their are mandatory safety briefings and reffs make sure people know when games are starting and have masks on. I just feel like when I walk off of the airall field, I want to personally check and make sure everyone's guns are covered. With all of this said, I really do like Wannaplay. It's a good place to go if you want to spend a day playing some casual airball or woodsball.

I disagree, WPP has always been very saftey conscience in my opinion. All masks are kept on after games, untill all markers are plugged AND on the ground. I've never felt in danger there at all.

As a referee for the field, I do understand some of the problems mentioned here. As far as safety precautions go, some of the newer refs are still getting out of their shell. All the veteran refs are doing their best to manage humongous groups of people by themselves and sometimes things slip by them.

If you see someone with a problem, address it to them in a kind manner. If they refuse, do not press the issue. Let a ref know and they will enforce the rule. If that player doesn't listen to the ref, they will be sent a-packin' and you won't have to worry about it.

Thanks for enjoying Wanna Play Paintball. And remember, if you have any concerns or questions, don't be afraid to ask one of the older refs or Sheldon himself. We're always glad to help.

i very strongly disagree with your last comment safety at wpp is expressed very highly giveing every player a safety presentation even if you have played their before and almost never allow players to walk into the parking lot or the dead box without a barrel plug
