NY Yankeez Saturday, January 12th, 2008
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: January 12th, 2008
Paintball
Experience:
1 year
Review: Avoid Fort Paint ball if at all possible.

Pro's:
1. Cheap
2. Multiple choice of fields
3. Self-service air is convenient

Con's:
1. Absolutely no safety meeting letting the children and inexperienced know the rules which is very discomforting considering paint ball guns are EXTREMELY dangerous. There was two occasions where actual refs were walking through the resting area with a full tank and loaded hopper with no barrel plug/bag. There was absolutely no regard for safety from ANYONE.

2. Road leading to field is extremely bumpy. If you do not have an SUV or a truck I would recommend finding a ride with someone who does.

3. The "staff", if you can call them that, were, for the most part, young, rude, and unhelpful teenagers. The young man behind the register exchanging money was the only "staff" member that bothered to do anything.

4. The "staff" thought it would be a good idea to burn excess card board in a barrel in the middle of the "resting area" which was extremely annoying. Thick black smoke coupled with a terrible burning smell isn't the best atmosphere.

5. My small group of 4 was 100% disregarded for a half hour or more and given the run-a-round by three or for different "staff" members trying to find a ref who would either put us in a group or start a group to ref us. We were sent back and forth from the fields twice so the "staff" members could do as little work as possible. When we finally got a game started the ref stood on the side the entire time not moving or enforcing any rules what-so-ever. There was a point where a player was angry at the end of a match for being shot and he took off his mask and began shooting at the opposing team. The ref was oblivious of the entire incident.



Bottom Line:
This place is cheap and you will understand why after you have been there for about 15 minutes. There is a multitude of fields and they are maintained but they don't come even close to making up for the monumental problems with this field.

I don't know, you do have to sign a waiver that mentions the danger and safety. So it's more of a you should know safety rules prior to playing. A lot of paintball safety is just plain common sense. Wear a mask, barrel sock and all that jazz.
