Period of
Field Use:
Less than a month

More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
None thus far.
to the Field:
Take I-87 and exit on Wolf road. Follow the ramp to get on Central Ave. Follow Central ave towards West. After passing their Pro-Shop, turn left on Lisha Kill Road. When stopped at the T in the road, turn right on Albany street. At the first light, turn left (Morris Road). Follow the road to the field.
Review: Hours of Operation: To my understanding, they're open from 12PM-5PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Prices: $12 for field fee, $50 for sub-par paint for case of 2000. If you wish to bring your own paint, there's a $20 cost for using them. $5 for all day air. I don't know the prices on rentals because I use my own equipments.

Rules are simple: You get shot, you're out. Their refs are not experienced, thus you'll not see much calling people out. People playing on field seems to be more integrity than not. They will call themselves out if they feel their shots. Alas, if they get shot on their gear or anywhere where you can't feel, obviously they continue to play. When the paint doesn't break, people will continue to play.

There's not much "food" at the facility. They do sell junk food, but I normally take my own food, which many others are welcome to do, to my understanding.

There are few complaints about the field
1) Their lack of air when filling tanks has been continuous problem for my gun. After two games, I gun will experience re-cocking issues. I heard their CO2 was not the best either.
2) Their X-Ball field was heavily deflated providing minimum cover from certain angles. Cleanliness was not their concern.
3) Their paint was crappy, to say the least. It would curve a lot, providing no accuracy, balls will plainly hurt like hell without them breaking, and it's $50 for a case of 2000. They do have access to their Pro-Shop, I do not understand why they won't stock verity of paints for players to chose with wide range of prices. I consider it cheaper to buy paintballs from a different vender for $30 for 2000 and paying the extra $20 to play with my paint.
4) Their woodsball field was quite small with little cover. The trees were thin, making it a bad place to hide behind. Say goodbye to sniping, because you're practically facing each other before you start, thus no time for hiding.

Praises for their field
1) Even though you're not going to have a professional ref (which I didn't expect having in the first place), their refs are really laid back. Their employees are laid back and everyone there are friendly.
2) Their village field was extremely fun. Their mount field was exciting as well.
3) Their Pro-shop carries wide range of markers and accessories for your excitement from woodsball to speedball, for novice to pros. If they don't have what you desire in stock, they'll likely have it ordered and in store within few business days. I had no issues with their shop, thus far.
4) Most of the people in Albany area seems to be novice when it comes to paintball. I enjoyed playing with people there and meeting new people. I hardly ran into people who complained about the pain and left.

All in all, I highly recommend this field for anyone who wishes to have a good weekend. I will be returning to this field every chance I get. I feel that they need few improvements for their field, but that's the nature of the business... you'll always get criticized.

Keep up the good work, guys!
