Review: The thing that annoys me the most is the "house paint only" rule. I don't much care for their choice of paint. i understand they have to make a buck, but c'mon. They sell Evil ($55ish), Rampage ($50ish) and SC paint ($35 or $39, i can't remember) any paint with a red or orange florescent fill is not allowed.

I have played both with a private party and as a walk-on. If you're in a private party youll have much more fun. you get you're own private ref that stays with you throughout the day. we got Tim who's pretty cool, hes a skinny white guy that wore a mirrored mask. He made sure everybody was safe, but wasnt all up in your kool aid if you didn't have house paint. He split our group of 30 and made sure we had fun. Now on the other hand, as a walk on you're in a group of 100 or so people and you get 3 refs. They take their time getting to the feild and make the players wait. They're pretty fair and dependable for the most part. There was one douchey guy there though. I didn't see his name tag but he's a short hispanic teen that appeared to be on a powertrip. he asked a group of three to move to the other team but they said that they'd rather stay on the team they were already on. The ref should have moved on and asked other people to switch sides, but he didnt. he persisted with these guys and it one of them ended up leaving the feild.

The feilds themselves are pretty good. Very diffrent from SC village where most of the feilds are long range firefight. HSP has alot of close range areas on their feilds including mazes on 2 feilds. There is 1 speedball feild that i have not tried so ill refrain from commenting on it. many parts on their feilds have been taped off due to bees or unsecure structures.

They dont have an airsmith to help you with your gun and most of their rental people are inexperinced so if your high end marker happens to break down you better know how to fix it and have the tools to do it. I have not tried their rentals but its the usual tippmann 98 with the grip thing on the barrel.

There pro-shop sells the usual stuff but last time i went they were out of 9-volts. they dont have free O-rings so bring your own. you can't fire the gun unless you're on the feild or in the chrono station. meaning if youre gonna fire the leftover air in your gun in order to take off the tank you're gonna have to do it in the chrono station or youll have to wait in line at the pro shop to get a new o-ring.

There are lockers ($5) and benches overpriced slices of pizza and overpriced vending machines, but its not in the middle of nowhere so you can go to a drive thru.

25 bucks for admission
10 bucks for all day air
5 bucks for a locker
35/50/55 bucks for paint

SC village is better but this place is average. more fun if you go in a private group.
