Review: Lets start at the top...

My wife won a FREE party worth over $400 for up to 30 people. I had 26 people show up, they charged me $10 each for the 4 people that didn't show up. Tippmann pump carbines are the standard set at (I'm guessing) 230fps. Upgrade to a semi auto for $25. Upgrade again for $10 more for a semi auto with a laser site and a flashlight. $6 for 50 crap paintballs (unused paintballs turned in for credit [like I'll ever be back]). More "upgrades" like rental gloves(79 cent Jersey gloves) for $3, Used rental painter paper coveralls for $8, They do sell cups (that's one of the few good things). They even charge you $3 to rent a lock for your locker (you can't bring your own). Here's the good one you can bring you own gun for a $25 Chrono fee, any mods make it not useable (then you have to pay there fees for a gun). So, after an average of about $50 per person for a FREE TWO hour party, we spent the first 30 minutes watching a safety film on 2 ancient, failing TVs that looked like it was made in the 80s. I feel safety is important, but you can only say "keep your masks down on the field" and "Keep your guns socked off the field" so many times.
Then we entered the "Control room" they spent 15-20 minutes on more instruction and handing out the guns. We all enter the field. The only thing I can liken it to is wearing dress shoes on ice. SO SO SLICK. We had a player fall and break both lower bones in her arm. The 25 minutes it took to get the ambulance there ( we performed first aid while they stood there and looked stupid. We made a splint from a clipboard and boot laces.) the time counted toward our 2 hours. So real play time was next to none. Everyone had extra paint and have vouchers we'll never use. We played capture the flag twice and then an team elimination that turned into an everyone for themselves as everyone goes through another door to turn in all the rental stuff. One of the few good things is the layout of the "underground city", its a good concept, but there is fish oil seeping out of the hot wood making it extremely slick. It smells too.
We all received vouchers for $7 fee on a Sunday, I used it to use my paint I had. It was just as bad. I was hoping for better experience, I was WRONG. When I returned, they were getting ready to open a haunted house, so only half the lights worked. It was DARK AND SLICK, great combo.
Don't bother complaining either, they don't care.

Save your money, save your time, save your body.
