Review: To start off I am born and raised in Buffalo, NY the birthplace of indoor. I have played all across the country and have played for over a decade. I went to OP with my girlfriend and her brother. Both of them have little and I stress little experience in paintball. First impression of OP is definately friendly atmosphere. The overall apperance of the fascility is better than most I have seen. Parking is something to be desired but they use every inch of space very well. Pricing, overall was fair. I did spend well over 120 but thats to be expected with 3 people, Paint was on the high side but thats expected with inflation. They are there to help but they also have to make money to stay in business.
I definately give the staff credit, I was there on one busy day. They did their jobs, since I was not from around there I expected not be treated like one of their own. But they were overall friendly and helpful. The fields were above standard, only downfall was they are geared towards the newer players to try and find everyone's preferances. I am an avid tourny player, I love speedball (Xball is my bread and butter). The way they broke everyone down into groups was a little different from what I am used to. That bothered me some. I didn't like how we had to follow a "group" and play the same people over and over again. The different styles of games definately did its job. My girlfriend now plays with me often, (I had to buy her a gun for christmas the following year...thanks guys). To show the variety of what they offer, I enjoy the airball fields outdoors and she like'd the scenario style games of gold rush and the ring toss game we played inside.
From what I saw there was not many tournement players there. On a funny note, Once I arrived and got ready to play I did get a few head turns. I even had a younger kid follow me around for awhile asking me all sorts of questions regarding who I was and where I played. Im not a "pro" player by any means. Im amatuer plus at best. On the overall player aspect, I did get yelled at by some other players that I was to experienced to play against. For a player in my shoes you will always find that in open play. No matter what state you play in that will always happen. Id recommend you get used to that happening.
In closing, the overall facility I gave a 7 rating. Its definately a good solid field but there are room for improvement in the operation of games. I'd recommened to OP if they decided to want to grab more tournement style players, allow them to play on fields that they choose. Example the outdoor airball fields. Overall I had a great time just playing rec ball. I was there to have fun and I did, OP keep up the great job and you should have no problem staying open for another 20 years........
