Review: Ok well Went to action paintball today with about 5 of my buddies, and all the negative reviews in this fourm about this place are true. First as soon as you get there you can see the attitude the refs have by the way they act, even one of my buddies who works for the state noticed one of the guys that was a ref had prison tats and made a funny comment, since the guys walked around like he owned the place being a whole buck 25. Anyways we chrono our guns and ask the ref guys for tape, and since we didnt use his name and or ref and called hey man can we get some ribbons for our guys this guy proceeds to give us the shaft and says when you learn my name you can get some ribbon. well my buddy who noticed his prison tat made a comment to the guy and about being rude and next thing we know he's in our face threating to kick off the field. Well they picked with the wrong crowd my friend proceeds to call him a dick&*^%. so the owner some 50 something overweight jerk gets everyones attention and lets them know that we've been warned because we've disrespected the staff so one more thing they are going to kick us off the field. Well that would of been really funny to see with a staff that coulnd't amount to about kicking a mouse off that field. So we decided to calm down and just play. Well around after the first game my buddy deciedes to confront the owner and ask him is it policy for his refs to give attitude to people for little things. The owner asked what happened and he explains hes the one who could his guy a dickhead for being disrespect full to him. The guy gets all quite and tell us they have to be that way becuase of the amount of issue they get with customers. My friends lets him know that it ain't the customers its his refs with god like attitude. He lets the onwer know he's lucky he didn't knock his ref out, since he's 200 lbs and the ref is 125lb and a big head on his shoulders.

First off the rounds are way to quick. 15 mins for the size of field they have is too little.
There stuff is so over priced it nuts, a bag of walmart paintballs for 65.00
I dont know who they have as an insurance company but they are getting ripped off their rules are just plain stupid my buddy had to rent a gun from them and he removed a tank form the rental gun to get it filled and they almost killed his first born with the way they acted about it.
Hire guys who haven't been in prison who weigh and buck 25 that act like they are 50 cents.
Start games quicker i was their for a total of 4 hrs and played 4 15mins rounds wtf!
Start treating the customers like customers, they pay your paycheck. dont jump down their throats or cuss at them becuase you have no other way to communicate with the human race.


My review for this place is awful and the whole management(ex cons) need to take a chill pill and figure out that it takes people to make there business. But i will say the place was packed, but you could see that everyone one out there was affriad of the staff, and didnt say crap to offend them or do anything to make their jobs harder.

Once again another person who has only posted only this one review and has done nothing else with their profile on this site but attempt to smear or discredit our field.

This guy's story is a twisted and distorted account of what happened to him at our field. Either I wasn't there on this particular day (unlikely) or the story, as he told it, didn't happen that way at all. If i'm remembering this guy correctly, things ended way differently from how he tells it ..

We have problems with customers every weekend just like any other field ranging from violating safety rules, arguing with other customers, damaging rentals, or purposely disobeying the referees. We always give our patrons plenty of warning and the opporunity to fix the problem before we fix it for them. Those few customers that don't want to cooperate with us end up getting kicked off of the field.

"one of my buddies who works for the state noticed one of the guys that was a ref had prison tats and made a funny comment, since the guys walked around like he owned the place being a whole buck 25." -salespop75

So just because you don't approve of how our staff walks or that he has tattoos, you think it's acceptable to make a "funny comment" about him?

"Anyways we chrono our guns and ask the ref guys for tape, and since we didnt use his name and or ref and called hey man can we get some ribbons for our guys this guy proceeds to give us the shaft and says when you learn my name you can get some ribbon. well my buddy who noticed his prison tat made a comment to the guy and about being rude and next thing we know he's in our face threating to kick off the field. Well they picked with the wrong crowd my friend proceeds to call him a dick&*^%." -salespop75

The way you describe it happening is twisted. You demanded that you be given some tape, which we have people tie to their hoppers to show what team they're on. The teams would have been uneven, so the ref said no.

So you complained at the ref who told you to deal with his decision or leave. Your friend then calls him a dickh**d. You and your friends sound completely mature..

"so the owner some 50 something overweight jerk gets everyones attention and lets them know that we've been warned because we've disrespected the staff so one more thing they are going to kick us off the field. Well that would of been really funny to see with a staff that coulnd't amount to about kicking a mouse off that field. So we decided to calm down and just play. Well around after the first game my buddy deciedes to confront the owner and ask him is it policy for his refs to give attitude to people for little things." -salespop75

So it sounds like after you called the ref a dickh**d he did what all our refs are expected to do and got the boss involved rather than arguing with you.

The boss gave you a warning and informed the other players that they should let us know if there were any problems with you. After the first game you couldn't let it go and got on the bosses case. He told you to get over it.

I'm not sure if this whole situation occured in some alternate reality or not. Maybe you made it up. As far as I can tell your story never happened.

Of course it does sound an awful lot like that time that we kicked a bunch of a**holes off of our field, which happens every now and then.

I think that I was here that day.... this story seems familiar.
Note: The guy who wrote this seemed stoned at the time

"even one of my buddies who works for the state noticed one of the guys that was a ref had prison tats and made a funny comment"

Disrespect for the win!

" Anyways we chrono our guns and ask the ref guys for tape, and since we didnt use his name and or ref and called hey man can we get some ribbons for our guys this guy proceeds to give us the shaft and says when you learn my name you can get some ribbon"

The tape is purely for marking teams. If you don't need it to mark your team, why ask for it?

"Well they picked with the wrong crowd my friend proceeds to call him a dick&*^%. so the owner some 50 something overweight jerk gets everyones attention and lets them know that we've been warned because we've disrespected the staff so one more thing they are going to kick us off the field"

I don't see why you are complaining about that. You called the staff member a dickhead, why wouldn't you be warned?

"My friends lets him know that it ain't the customers its his refs with god like attitude. He lets the onwer know he's lucky he didn't knock his ref out, since he's 200 lbs and the ref is 125lb and a big head on his shoulders."

Im pretty sure that is called assault. Your lucky he didn't press charges for mental anguish and a whole bunch of crap against YOU.

"First off the rounds are way to quick. 15 mins for the size of field they have is too little"

400 something acres isn't big enough for you?

"There stuff is so over priced it nuts, a bag of walmart paintballs for 65.00"

I declare fabrication. it is rec quality paint and it is $15 a bag.

"I dont know who they have as an insurance company but they are getting ripped off their rules are just plain stupid my buddy had to rent a gun from them and he removed a tank form the rental gun to get it filled and they almost killed his first born with the way they acted about it."

They ask that you bring the whole marker to them instead of taking the tank off yourself. Is it that big of a deal?

"Hire guys who haven't been in prison who weigh and buck 25 that act like they are 50 cents."

Thats just disrespect. Just because he was in prison doesn't mean that he is a bad dude.

"My review for this place is awful and the whole management(ex cons) "

Fabrication

"but you could see that everyone one out there was affriad of the staff"

I was there that day and I wasn't afraid. Nor anybody with me. Nor anybody that I could see there.

"and didnt say crap to offend them "

woah woah woah woah..... what about the whole dickhead thing?
