ESG paintball is overall just as good, but each place has it's ups and downs.
I like Young Guns because it has a lot of good things about it, but I find it really inconvenient.The have a good variaty of fields to play on. My personal favourites are "Vimy ridge","Main Street","Desert Storm" and I dont' mind "Snakes and Ladders". They have pretty good rental equipment and overall good reffs. The prices are ok, 100 paintballs costs $10 and a basic package with a marker (I don't remember what brand), coveralls (I have my own, but the ones they have are ok), mask, and 200 paintballs is about $32. Now i have to warn you about a couple things if your considering going there. They have a good approach to safety, but they make you watch a 15 minute safety video which gives you a laugh or two but is still very boring if you already know the rules. my problem wih the safety video is that I think that they show it to you during your 3 hours of time that you pay for. The other problem with the time is that unlike some other places, Young Guns reffs don't put a time limit on the games, they tell you that you only have one game left just as your having the most fun. I also don't like driving to Stony Plain from Sherwood Park (45mins to an hour), but I guess that doesn't matter if you live closer to it. Overall this place is great if you're being paired up or have your own group.I'm giving it a 7 but it's actually more of a 7.5.
Dispute: I have played at Young Guns many times and every time that you rent you are asked to show up half an hour before so that you can sign in, get coveralls, and watch the safety video. It does not cut into your playing time. Also the video is only ten minutes long. Quite frankly I don't know why anyone would get mad at a field for being safety conscious..
