Splatter Park, Pinnacle Woods and numerous fields in NJ, PA and NY
I only went to Paintball Village to get a fill on my HPA tank and shoot a few rounds for the fun of it in their shooting range.
I did not play here so I cannot verify how fun the field is, I can only report on what I saw when I was there.
1. The man behind the counter was not friendly and had a chip on his shoulder. As I was standing there waiting, he was helping a family of four get ready to play.
Employee: go to the briefing room to watch the video
Father of group: we already watched it the last time they played
Employee: you have to watch it every time
Father: That's new. We have played here a handful of times and only watched it once.
Employee: Well I've been here at Swings and Things 14 years and that's the way it is supposed to be done so whoever didn't make you watch it is wrong.
It was fine with him, he didn't care - he just didn't realize he had to watch it every time.
The dude behind the counter starts coping some attitude like he is Mister Swings and Things.
2. 4500 psi tank. I want it filled for when I go to my family's BBQ so I can let everyone play with the new toy I bought. After he fills it and gives it back, I look at the guage and its reading 3500.
I asked if there was something wrong and he said it was only filling to 4k. I then told him it was barely at 3500. He then grabs it from the counter, doesn't say a word, puts more air into it, only to 4k, and hands it back.
The problem I had here, as can be discerned from my two examples, was that this man had no people/customer service skills and should not be working the front counter. It was like he was pissed of at his life and did not want to be there.
3. There is no such thing as a pro shop at this place. There were all of 3 things in the display case.
The good: Like I said, I did not play here but from what I could see, the scenario field looks AWESOME. Its a little small for my liking and IMHO is only good for up to 5-10 per side, but it really is like playing in a FUBAR'd town. It definitely looked sweet. I also really liked how you could just hang out and watch the game. They should really put up some bleachers.
