After going over some of the reviews, I have read some mixed feelings regarding RUSH. I must admit, I too experienced mixed emotions about this facility. My first impression of RUSH was not all that great. I have an issue with the prices. After paying up for field fees, all-day air, and paint balls, my total exceeded that of the cost of renting their equipment. Just my personal opinion, this seems a bit backwards. RUSH also insists that players purchase paint only offered at their facility. I have no problem at all with this as most fields require the same. However I was a little disappointed with the fact that maybe 70% of the balls I purchased were flat-spotted. This made any type of accurate shooting nearly impossible. This was just my first impression. I’ll now comment on the fields. The ‘Vietnam’ course, though smaller in size, was actually pretty cool. I must admit, I enjoyed playing through the various obstacles. Rush also features ‘speedball/hyperball’ courses, as well as a hill course featuring a fortress on top of the hill. This course was also exciting. During a brief pause, I was able to dine on free hotdogs. I noticed that some previous players commented negatively on the fact that you must cook them yourself. Again, I had zero problems with cooking my own FREE food. Now for the staff, I feel the Refs, although nice, were a little unfair at times. By this, I mean on more than one occasion, I saw refs giving away players positions by casually pointing out the opposition. Personally, I don’t agree with these tactics. During my final game of the day, on the ‘Vietnam’ course, I again experienced this unfairness. A player from the opposing team was walking the side of the course. He appeared as if he had been shot and called out. As it turns out, the player was not out. As he approached two of my teammates positioned ahead of me, he fired rapidly point blank on them. After firing on them, he shot me. The paint that grazed my jacket didn’t break. My two teammates and I were then called out. I realize that technically, no rules were broken. I feel however, this is not fair play. The ref, by the way, thought this was hilarious. Myself, and most of my team, did not.
So, in conclusion, I’ll go over my personal pros and cons for RUSH. Here are the pros; decent courses that offer a variety of play, and free food. Here are the cons; pricey playing fees for those with their own equipment, less than quality paint, refs, and unfair play. I’ll let you, the reader; decide for yourself if this is the right course for you. As I have read, most of you enjoy RUSH paintball and have had a positive experience there. My personal experience though says this is not the course for me. I feel, the cons out-weigh the pros. As for myself, and the seven friends that accompanied me to RUSH, this was our first visit, and will also be our last.
Dispute: hey i just wanted to get on and say thanks for your views.....but please allow me to clear a few things up for you... the refs might casually point out a position but but it might not be as one sided as you think they just simply do it to help speed up a game... they help out who ever is closest to them... and what that guy did was simply walk down the field....his gun wasn't up and there was no sign he was out.... and you might not of got shot but if i remember corectly you called out then noticed that it wasn't broke so u wanted back in... but yeah please come back man......the paint will hopefully be getting better here soon.
