This place SUCKS!!!! dont go here they over price everything they charged me 7 bucks for an allen wrench set that i had to buy because they "didnt lend out tools to players" it was around 35 bucks for 2 hours which is outragous all the staffworkers basically hate their job besides the one Asian guy, hes cool, but the refs dont do anything all they do is briefly explain the game then stand there and wave their flash lights around, their rentals suck and are over priced they charge like 12 bucks to rent (which i had to do becuase i couldnt use my gun) and its around 10 dollars if you bring your own gun the paint prices oh my gosh 5 dollars for 50 rounds of paint that explodes grey that you cant even see. the guy at the front desk is a total *** hole and doesnt chrono right he lifts up the chrono away from the barrel like 5 inches away and NO HEAD SHOTS!!! thats the most exposed part of the body, the only thing that i will remember 5 years from now is that this place sucks and to keep your mask down and sock your gun.
a little bit about the field: i like the idea of using an abandoned city that is all messed up with the car wreck scene but you cannot see at all you can see is the orange or the yellow vests of the teams which makes this game feel even more like laser tag then anything else, also its extremely easy to cheat there due to the lighting you cant see any paint explosions!!! and if you ever go there you basically have to crawl to get around or your gonna bust your head on the ground by how slippery it is. it also gets so humid in there that after you walk in there for 5 minutes you will fog up your goggles like it was raining in there even to thermal goggles it just takes a little longer
Employees: like i said before they're not very excited to be there they talk down to players like your retarded and they're mostly a bunch of 20 year old druggies that have a hangover from the night before. they also know absolutly nothing.
Field Regulations: ok i understand the keep your mask down and your gun socked out side of the field but it is very unneccessary when you get out to run down that 40 yard hallway and tap the counter and run back in only to get shot right when you go in, and no head shots!!!! you have to be kidding me!!!! another is the 220 FPS that is definetly not for safety because you have to be like sitting on top of the other player and let the ball roll out of the barrel and land on them or your not going to get them out that has to be so you have to pay extra money to use their equptment which is worth a whole 5 cents.
Rentals: Worst rental prices ever you have a choice to use a pump gun with no accuracy, a semi auto gun (tippmann pro carbine), or a semi auto gun with a little flash light on the side that you dont really get to use because you cant have it on for any longer than a second or your disqualified.
Conclusion: basically dont go here take the time to go down to anderson where i guess white river paintball is at. this place was not made for the love of the game it was to scam people of their money dont go here i'd give this place a triple negative 10 if i could but it gets the honor to be a one
DARK ARMIES IS A RIP OFF, MY SON WENT THERE WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS.
WAS ONLY THERE 15 MIN WALKED OUT INTO THE NEUTRAL HALLWAY AND COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING FOR THE PAINT ON HIS MASK, HE LIFTED HIS MASK TO SEE WHERE HE WAS WALKING, AND THEY SAID IT WAS A SAFETY ISSUE AND KICKED HIM OUT OF THE GAME, WHERE I PAID 37.00 IN UPGRADES THAT HE DIDNT EVEN GET TO USE, HE DIDNT EVEN GET THRU THE 1ST 50 PAINTBALLS,
ARE THEY SAYING IT IS SAFE TO WALK THRU HALLWAYS WITH A PAINT COVERED MASK ON, EVEN WHEN YOUR NOT IN THE PLAYING AREA? HOW STUPID IS THAT, I TELL YOU THEY ARE NOTHING BUT HUNG OVER 20 YR OLDS TRYING TO MAKE A BUCK OFF OF UPGRADES AND RULES JUST TO KICK KIDS OUT OF THE GAME,
I UNDERSTAND IF SOMEONE BROKE POLICY,AND WAS KICKED OUT OF THE GAME FOR SAFETY REASONS, BUT IF YOUR WALKING THRU A HALL AND CANT SEE, AND NOT EVEN IN THE AREA, I DONT THINK THAT IS SAFE , I THINK THEY ARE JUST WAITING TO REVOKE PLAYING TIME FROM YOUNG KIDS, AND IF SO ISNT THAT PUNISHMENT ENOUGH TO TAKE AWAY THEIR PLAYING , WHAT DOES KEEPING THEIR PARENTS MONEY FROM ALL THE UPGRADES HAVE TO DO WITH SAFETY PROCEDURES, I CALLED AND SAID YOU TOOK MY KID OUT OF THE GAME, THATS FINE, I JUST WANT REFUNDED ALL THE UPGRADES I PAID FOR THAT HE DIDNT GET TO USE, I WAS TOLD THAT WAS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN IT WAS PART OF THE LESSON TO BE LEARNED FOR BREAKING THE RULE, I SAID SHOULDNT KICKING THEM OUT OF THE GAME AND KEEPING ADMISSION FEE BE ENOUGH? WHY WOULD YOU KEEP ALL THE MONEY FOR EXTRA PAINT BALLS AND GUN UPGRADES WHEN THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE USING THEM? LIKE I SAID , HE TOLD ME IT WAS PART OF THE PUNISHMENT,
MY SON WAS THERE WITH A GROUP OF YOUNG KIDS, AND THIS PLACE KICKED SEVERAL OF THEM OUT OF THE GAME FOR THAT SAME REASON FOR LIFTING UP THERE HELMET WHILE WALKING THRU THE HALL SO THAT THEY COULD SEE, AND THEY WERE NOT EVEN IN THE PLAYING ARENA. THIS PLACE SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN AND PUT OUT OF BUSINESS NOW, THEY DID NOT TELL THE KIDS HEY YOU HAVE TO WALK THRU THE NEUTRAL HALLS AND BUMP IN TO WALLS ALL THE WAY TO THE COUNTER OR NEXT TIME YOU WILL BE KICKED OUT!, NO, THEY JUST REMOVED THEM AFTER NOT EVEN MINUTES!- AND KEPT ALL THE MONEY THEY COLLECTED FROM THE PARENTS ON THE UPGRADES, HIS ADMISSION WAS 24# AND THE UPGRADES WAS 37.00, THATS 61.00 FOR JUST ONE CHILD,
and these kids never been paintballiing before either, so after the 15min they were kicked out, they were sitting on a bench for the next 3 hrs all by them self ,
including the birthday boy who's mom paid for all admissions,
beware not to pay for multiple admiss for the kids may not even get to play and no body will get your money's worth except the 20yrs olds behind the counter waiting to kick each kid out, and move in the next batch of unexpecting teens and parents with wallets.
