Directions
to the Field:
GPS - but ONCE you get to the address, notice a sign on the left, the bottom right will have a decent sized portion of it dedicated to ALL STAR PAINTBALL, pull down the road, at the Y bare to the right and keep going. You'll get to all the warehouses, its the last one on the left as I recall.

Note: your gps will likely say you have arrived before you have done any of the previously mentioned.
Review: QUICK REVIEW: Go here.

I drove 2.5 hours to get here, and it was very worth it. Cheap paint (Red Legion Case for 54 incl tax.), great field set up, nice size, Legit video games, and good proshop, Great staff. Oh ya, real bathrooms. (his and hers)

FULL REVIEW:

---Getting there---
So, my body was in town, and we needed to find a paintball place. It was freezing and there was snow on the ground, so outdoor was not an option. But Lancaster, PA is short on indoor paintball fields. LGA south was not answering their phone, and LGA North's phone was interminably busy? I looked extensively to find an indoor field that was legit and would be open. I called All Star and they were sure they would be open and stay open in time for me to get down there.... how many times have you put in the effort and had fields that knew you were coming or close just... close and not bother calling?

Well, at All Star not only did they stay open for me and buddy, but they called me back when they missed my call..... that was cool. And, once we got there, they said they would suit up and play with us to make our near 3 hour ride, each way, worth it. Its harder and harder to find professional people who respect both their own business and their customers, so I was very appreciative.

---Pro Shop/Prices --
Entrance and Air= $25 I think.
Paint= $54 incl tax for a case of red legion, which shot very very well, and was only their mid tier paint.
ProShop= I bought Dye Pants for $60, great deal. And they were able to teach me some useful fixes on my gun, and also diagnosed a problem on my stubby.

--Staging area-- = benches that you are not afraid will crumble beneath you, video games like Time Crisis 2, and others, which could be cool for your friends who or taking a break, etc. *random thought* they have a vending machine that has an american flag cover... pretty cool*

---Playing there/Field Set Up---
The field set up = great, demands smart moves, and good bunker skills, and snap shooting. Full snake, big lay down X at the 50, dorito side, and some temples that gave angles off the X.

Field= was turf, def wear rubber cleats (no metals allowed) as you should at all fields. The field was great for sliding.

The turf = nice and sleek turf. no snags, no tripping, great for sliding. And trust me, I suck at head first sliding, so it was nice to have a good field to help me out there. I will say that good cleats are a must. No metal cleats allowed, just a reminder.

Note: they cleaned the field, and filled the bunkers, and they only had two patrons.... props to professionalism.

---Gametime---
The staff played so we had no "refs" but if one of the guys/owner got out, they would ref if needed. I.E. my buddy bunkered one of there guys in the snake, and didnt want to fire on him from about... 3 feet away, and the owner was on top of it, and called for the player to walk out. (He was a cool kid, he would have walked anyway).
The staff was good, and fun to play with, and offered some useful critiques and praise.

ps- it was about 8 degrees outside, and it was very comfortable in the field house. No cold chill indoor paintball here.

---Air station---
One 3000psi air station
Three 4500psi air stations.

note: I dont believe they have C02 fills

---Chrono---
they chrono at 270, and for big games/tournys, each player must pass chrono before entering field, and has to repass upon exiting.

---Safety---
they were cool about it and did the calm, but assertive.. "yo man.... barrel plug/mask" when appopriate, but dont mistake kindness for weakness.... I left my mask up after a one on one.... and they Let me know... I deserved it lol.

---Staff---
all around cool guys who like paintball and do their job well, and play well. Again, remember there were only two customers here because of the weather.

The owner, offered to go on the internet and find the cheapest hotel around for me and by buddy, in case the roads were too bad for us to drive all the way back. And, he did find us a good deal, but we were able to make it home just fine.

---Bathrooms--- male and female, nice sized, and clean.

Random Advice:
I would totally expect this place to be busy, because it deserves to be. Bring towels because I am sure with a lot of foot traffic that the benches will get paint on them from people coming and going-- also, if you have a change of shoes that you bring with you and dont want to get dirty, dont walk in with them, as on a busy day I would def expect the floor in the staging area to have paint on em.

---Bottom Line---
I am very much appreciative of the professionalism and generosity of All Star paintball. They let me and my friend get one last game in before we go to our respective schools, and they taught me a lot on the game.

I give it a 9/10 because there is always room for improvement, and fittingly, these guys are looking forward.

Don't listen to any flamers, if there are any. Great place to play. Period.
