The place has hired a bunch of kids to do the job. The last time we were there the ref was very knowlwdgeable and friendly. This time a different story. We are a group of adults just out for a good time and we have a bunch of unfriendly kids just being rude. They were not very knowledgeable and really just made it a bad experience. When one of these kids got mad because we were being to loud and he wanted to speek he had accually told us to "shut the F**k up". We (a group of 16) will NOT be going back.
JohnnyG. Your group was rude and insulting.
They broke the safety rules, mask and barrel sleeves over and over and would not stop.
Your group was adults and acted childishly in their blatent disregard for The Paintball Arena's safety rules. Rules that are meant to keep you safe.
Your group treated the ref badly and ignored him when he tried to explain game rules.
It is hard for a young lad of 16 to feel good about his job when a bunch of adults treat him with zero respect.
Did you give him any respect? NO.
Did you listen to him as he gave rules? NO.
Did you ignore him laughingly when he tried to get you to follow the safety rules? YES.
Your group was also incredibly rude and profane to the 24 year old woman who was managing the counter.
There were sexual innuendos some of your groups comments to her that made her cry and leave early. I heard some of what one of your group said to her....and it was sexual harrasement.
The owner of The Paintball Arena knows the group. They are business owners and are professionals in the community.
The owner finds it hard to believe they would treat one of his family like a $20 crack whore. But they did. Shame on you. Shame. Shame.
Your group payed to play paintball, and have fun.
The Paintball Arena always tries to show everyone a good time.
Perhaps if the group had had an older male working that night, they would not have acted as they did... and would not have treated an older male like they did the teenager and the woman.
The man who told you to "shut up" was one of the senior staff members who was not working, but had stopped by to chat with the staff.
He is a very easy going guy and you people must have been OUTRAGEOUS for him to do what he did.
He saw the lack of respect for the 16 year old.
He saw the crying staff member.
Shame on you JohnnyG for these things that your group did.
I apologize for my comments to the PBreview staff. I am stating FACTS as they were given to me by the staff of The Paintball Arena.
Readers of these posts must understand that there are always two sides to every story.
I would have to agree with Pendralion on this one....the group that came in consisted of men between the ages of 30-45. They were hitting on a young woman that was 24...i dont know about you guys but it doesnt seem right that grown men need to sexually harass a young woman. Even to the extent that she cried, if i were the owner you guys would be banned from the arena, and possibly bring the police into this. The Paintball arena always treats their customers with respect, and they expect it in return, how do you expect to run a business when people are not listening to the person in charge, especially when they are 16 years old, it sounds like he was the one who was trying to make everyone have a good time, and same with the senior staff member who told you guys numerious times to listen to the instructions of the game for your safety and the safety of others. To me it sounds like you acted like a bunch of grade 3's that went on a feild trip and had to be asked to go sit back in the bus because they were misbehaving. Bravo to all of the staff at the PBA, keep up the good work. And to those of you from that group, i hope to never see you in the Arena again, im sure the young lady behind the desk would like it very much if you guys never came back....you old hairy men!
