Colchester Paintball - doesn't compare to Advance Paintball
Tiger Stripes Paintball - fields are better then Advanced, however the prices are way higher.
Directions to the Field:
North Troy, VT. Google: "Advance Paintball VT" for the official website.
Advanced Paintball is an excellent field. The staff are very friendly and treat you with respect. The owner of the field is really nice and he actually plays every weekend with his customers and get to know them. Unlike Colchester paintball where the owners are only out to make a buck and treat you like your ignorant, and they are superior to everyone that steps onto their fields.
Advanced doesn't have a cover charge, and a case of decent paint 2,000 count is only $40. Air is around $4 to fill. Not only is it cheaper to play at Advance Paintball, the courses there are 100% better then Colchester Paintball. Advance has a really awesome castle that's two levels, and also has a bridge course that consists of 5 or 6 towers that are from 1 to 3 stories tall, they have a decent speedball course, and also have new courses and new structures going up by early 2011. The people that work on these courses also play every weekend and are extremely friendly, the few times I've played there, they have actually taken the time to show anyone the progress of the new fields that are being build and are always trying to make the exisiting fields better!
Advance Paintball gets a 9.5 out of 10 on my scale. The only reason they didn't get the .5 is because of their romote location. But don't let that stop you from having the best paintball game that you'll ever have in VT on a commercial field!! Great prices + AWESOME FIELDS + friendly staff and an owner = THE BEST FIELD IN VT!
Even though the field is located in a romote location, it doesn't stop people from frequently traveling even from the Burlington area to play! Visit their website, go play for a day, and compare everything against Colchester Paintball, and you'll see that the long drive to North Troy is worth every penny and every second of it.
