Review: I think the March 07 review below is for the wrong field; it sounds like he is describing Paintball Adventure Park, which has a similar name, but is 20 or so miles north up by Westminster/Taneytown, MD.

About this field (Adventure Park USA):
Realize up front that the paintball here is just a small part of a fairly small amusement park. This place has a roller coaster, mini-golf, go-carts, arcade, etc., and a single, small paintball course. It is a standard outdoor speedball field with not particularly well-placed bunkers. It is completely surrounded by netting, so spectators can easily watch. The ground is covered by round gravel, but in some spots the dirt/mud below is starting to come through.

The shop supplies and services the rental equipment, sells paint, and pretty much nothing else. I didn’t see any equipment for filling tanks of any kind. The rental gun is a short-barrel pistol and uses 55 cal paint. I think the smaller paint is promoted as being “lower impact”, meaning less bruises and such to the new/young players. They are field-paint only. They will allow you to bring your own gun, so they also have some normal 68 cal paint available for sale. The paint prices seemed pretty reasonable to me, with the rental 55 cal paint, at $45/2000. The 68 cal paint was priced higher, and I would guess doesn’t get used much so is probably not very fresh.

The staff isn’t particularly knowledgeable about paintball, but they do try. If you specifically ask, they will run a paintcheck, but they also would let players fire their guns in the staging area without masks on. I never saw a chrono, and even though the rental guns were all “set at the right speed already”, some did seem to be shooting hot.

I was there midday on a Saturday, with temperatures in the 40’s. There were 15 or so people playing, all kids or young teenagers (except for me). Everyone used the rental equipment. I was worried that the CO2 on the guns or the paint would have issues with the cold, but the guns seemed to work fine and the paint broke on the target at a reasonable rate. I brought six eleven year-olds to play, only one who had played before, and they all had a good time.

Bottom line:
I would not consider this a real paintball field, but for introducing people to the sport, it does a pretty good job. If you and your friends have played for a while and have your own gear, this field is not for you. If you’ve got some friends that are interested but you don’t want to put them up against the twibs with the $1000 uber-hoser 3000 guns, this is a good field to give them a little taste. If they don’t like it, they can always go ride the go-carts.
