Paintball Sportsland, Paintball Adventure Park, OA Bowie, and Anne Arundel when it was in business
Directions to the Field:
Off of Pulaski Highway in Rosedale. Batavia Farm Rd is right next to the Crazy Russian. Be careful crossing the train tracks, then stay left and follow the gravel road back until you make a right at the OA paintball sign. You continue on that road until you reach the parking lot.
800 Batavia Farm Road, Rosedale, MD 21237
Safety: Refs are on top of safety. They make sure the teams are fair and let you play whatever fields you want. They are strict about keeping your mask on, decocking/turning off/barrel bagging your marker, and making sure everyone chronos under 290fps to maintain a safe environment. There is a bunkering rule if you're under 15ft away you should offer a surrender and if you bunker them you yell "bunker, bunker, bunker" and they're out instead of shooting them.
Fields: They have one hyperball field , two urban fields, and multiple woods fields. The hyperball field is fast paced and well set up. The urban fields are made out of cut up sea containers, spools, corrugated pipe, etc. The close proximity makes the games fast and intense. All three of these fields are netted and spectator friendly. The woods fields have lots of bunkers (primarily pallets) not to mention natural cover. They're a lot of fun to play. There is a netted chrono area very close to the air/admissions and the hyberball and urban fields.
Prices: Admission is $20 w/ all day air and it's FPO. You can buy paint at their store and bring it as long as you have a receipt. There are good deals for admission and paint in one package, with four different grades of paint. Check their website for specifics.
Hours (open Sat. and Sunday): Walk ons 10-4, Rentals 11:30-3
Staff/Facilities: The staff are friendly and devoted to making sure you have a good time. The refs are fair, keep you safe, but make sure you have fun and let you choose what you play. They keep the games going to get you lots of playing time. Portapotties are on site. There are two big sea containers that are used for admission/paint and then air/rentals. There are spools to put your stuff on. The parking lot is huge and right next to the containers for admission/paint/air. It's inbetween the woods fields and the containers/hyperball and urban fields.
Food: They have free water in a cooler. They also sell soda/bottled water for pretty cheap. You can call in Domino's (they have the number) or pick up food close by (I know there's a subway).
Players: Not a high regular attendance, but the other players are friendly and fun to play with.
