NYC Paintball - LI City
Cousins - Plattelkill
This place is OK, moderate prices, good fields for rec ball. However some of the staff and possibly owners are not very nice at all, at least from my experience. They only want to cater to newbs, experience players not need go unless you want to play with walk-ons or private have your own group of 20 or more. Protect your gear, even if one of their staff breaks your stuff, they won't take responsibility. I do feel bad for that one ref, and he told me the owner said it's his responsibility to replace the hopper he accidently stepped on. The refs are getting better, try to do a good job by calling players out when they should. There isn't much for speedball there. If you like occasional recball, great place to be! Paint prices could be better, maybe if they offered two types of paint, one at $70 and one at $45/35. They don't have much inflated bunkers for speedball - that photo on their site isn't accurate. Over all the field is good, we bring big groups there two to three times a year. Frank is a good guy....

hey man good review i work at LPG and we do have an airball field but we took it down for the winter and we are still figuring out where we are going to put it up because we are building a new field where the current speedball field is and the old airball field was and it is an X ball field but hopefully we should have the airball set up
Hey air ball is back, but we do have to move it soon for a new field. As far as playing with Walk ons, that is called paintball. We have a large variety of players. They vary in their abilities. For the past several weeks, on most days we have had a beginner and advanced walk on game. it certainly makes it better. The more experienced players that come make it easier. Check out the new big game format for July 29th. We are going back to two teams for larger battles. A new start in a smaller area. We have real scenarios like save the general before they blow up and more. Finally as far as the paint prices, who would buy the $70 case if we offered the cheap stuff. We could never stay open if we made $20 on a case. remember we are always improving our facilities.
The website is out of date. We have a all new format, we have two teams only for bigger battles. they will be real close in a charging position to start. Real scenarios like save the general from blowing up. That involves combination locks. carry the Liberty Minuet Man head for points and more. We have added a command vechile to drop you behind enemy lines and much more. be there at 8 am or be prepared for a line.
