Review: Ok so I have been playing at this field for about 2 years now, mainly because it only takes me 5 minutes to get there, and I have been very pleased with it. It's a very low-key field and is great for parties or just playing with your friends, if you're a beginner, you don't have to worry about professional players getting in there and destroying you. Anyway, heres the review:

Safety: From my experience and what I've heard, they aren't uber strict on safety like at Skirmish, which is ok, because i was called out at Skirmish for wiping sweat on my forehead, which required me to lift my goggles for a second. At Action games they pretty much let you play as long as there are no glaring safety issues, like playing with goggles off or shooting pointblank. Before you can play they check all guns, whether you bring them or they supply them to you to see if they are shooting at the correct speed and give the whole group a short speach on safety, the rules, and how they expect the games to go (time, format, how to call someone out, and advice on playing the fields). So although they aren't strict on safety, no one is getting hurt on their watch.

Fields: These are the best woodsball fields I've played on so far. I like them better than Skirmish because these fields are actually woods, not a clearing with bunkers, this is real woodsball. When I went last, we played 3 woodsball fields and one speedball. Their website says that there are 7 fields on the complex, but i have yet to see them, whether they're under construction or what, I don't know. The speedball field we played was not very good, way worse than the Graveyard, but the Graveyard is built for professional teams and experienced players so they have better speedball. Overall the fields are right in line with what you're looking for and pay for.

Pricing: 35$ for a full setup provided by the field or 10$ if you bring your own gear, which is cheap compared to the other places I play. Paintballs are 60$ for a box of 2000 which is great compared to Skirmish where I payed 100$ for 2000.

Proshop: There is none, kind of a bummer

Staff: Mainly kids and a couple adults. They know what they're doing, but again, they're kids, and they don't take the job as seriously as I expected off the field, but they act very professionally during play, are very fare and enjoy seeing everyone play, its always nice to have staff who enjoy the game.

Players: Mainly you'll see beginners and amatuers, as well as alot of parties there. Walk-on's are permitted as long as there is a party of players the same day, call them to find out. When I went there last it was me and my friends as the main group, and some guys showed up who were good. They were very helpful to me and my less expecienced friends, showing us the correct strategy for each field, and giving advice on guns and equiptment, I probably got lucky with the guys that showed up, I know there are alot of jerks who like to prey on beginners but these gus were all class.

Food: Whenever I go I bring drinks and order pizza there when we're hungry, I don't know what they offer as far as food goes, but only because I never asked, theire website will probably explain more.

In conclusion, it's a very good facility, one I enjoy and continue to go to in the summer. I reccomend it to everyone I know and they have all said they enjoy it as well.

This is total crap! You don't more woodsball them Skirmish. Those fields are NOT cleared out for anything. 100% Pennsylvania woodland. They do have a few fields that have had a few trees removed so that they could buld a couple forts, town and castle fields but the majority of their 50...YES FIFTY....fields are all woods. Some with natural creeks and streams running through them.
If you like PAG then great. But don't blatantly lie about other fields.
