Playground is a great option if your in the Washington/Idaho area. I came over for the speed ball from Post Falls. Good experience, small group of regulars who played speed ball on a 3-4 man smaller speed ball course. Also a woods ball field that's OK kinda fun good guys out there with good attitude and willing to help. Worth the trip compared to wharts open anymore.
I have played at TriCities Paintball, and Woodsball.
Directions to the Field:
Heading west on Ahtanum Road it is 3 miles past Wiley City; 15850 Ahtanum Road-- Field's Phone# 509-901-4040
Playground Paintball is a fun recreational field with a speedball setup with air-bunkers. Many different level of players that all seem to have a good attitude toward one another. Game levels for the new players, game levels for the experienced player, and game levels for the occasional players too. The Owner operator is easy to talk to and the staff always will to help and give advice when needed. Field paint only, rentals available, and a low field/air fee makes it a relatively low price to play for the day making a day of paintball an affordable way to spend a Saturday.
Tri Cities paintball - Also a great field
The Compound-In Ellensburg- Out of business
Directions to the Field:
West on Ahtanum Rd. about 3 miles past Wiley City on the left.
Great field with a friendly staff. I would definitely recomend any ballers in central Washington come out and give Playground Paintball a try. Prices are reasonable at $5 for entry and $10 for all day compressed air, sorry no CO2 here ( if you do not have a compressed air tank don't worry Playground will probably loan you a tank for play ). Paint is extremely good Draxus field paint and at $45, a decent deal ( this is a field paint only park ).
The rec field is about 90 yards long and 60 yards wide with a house on one side and some trees. The rest is spool, plywood, hay bunkers. The Xball air field is great for up to 5 on 5, any more than that and it gets very tight. Hopefully they will be expanding to more fields later as they have more room to expand.
There are some great, competitive repeat players at Playground and allways walk on players, so there is all skill levels. They do a great job of trying to keep the teams and play fair.
To sum it up, come on out and give it a try. I have been playing paintball for over 5 years and this is a fun and safe environment to play the game we all love.
