Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
The only other fields in Pennsylvania that I've played at are Pentagon Paintball in Erie and the now defunct Fort Splat near Pittsburgh. The comparisons would be apples and oranges.
Review: The field itself is located just outside of a quaint small town. Due to the massive draw of their scenario and big games the town fills up quickly. I stayed at the Blue Ridge Motel, which is decent enough for the price. It's not much to look at but it was a place to sleep. The field also has bunkhouses you can procure for the weekend as an alternative to staying in town.

The field itself is quite amazing. They have numerous scenario and concept fields (towns, villages, the infamous Castle, etc.) We played in a private group that day and primarily played the castle (which is large enough to have a hyperball field on the inside). Our reffing was excellent, the multiple fill stations were also top notch and enabled several people to be filled at one time. The price was quite reasonable for the quality of the fields ($25). The field also had a pavillion with picnic tables for staging/set up etc. It was convenient and centrally located. At the beginning of the day we received a thorough safety briefing and the staff was conscientious about ensuring the field chrono limits were met.

The only downer to the experience was the fact that the paint was $75 a case. I don't mind paying this if only for the quality of the fields, however I would have preferred something of a higher quality than Severe Hurricane. The group I was with unanimously detested this paint. It was oblong, prone to being blown up in the barrel or loader and generally worthless. I've heard that in the 2 years since I've been there, that they've switched to Marbs, which is a much higher quality paint.

After playing, we hit town and grabbed a bite to eat at Green Gables restaurant. The food was excellent, the owner was a heck of a nice guy and the service was outstanding. The beers/food were also reasonably priced so ballers on a budget could enjoy a nice meal.
