There is a cousin's field. But who cares about cousin's?
Directions to the Field:
I came from NYC. Took Took sprain brook pkwy up to 84, then 84w to 10s. LEFT off the exit, down 3 miles then make a right at the sunoco. 4.6 miles down, and bear right at the fork, onto Plattekill Ardonia Rd. 2.7 miles down, make a right. You will see a sign for paintball. Down another mile, and make a left when you see the lake.
I came here for a private match yesterday with my boss, some of my friends and family. I had also come here for a walk-on day a few weeks ago. I have a new "home field".
Safety- They gave a safety speech to us. Not overbearing, but they kept on top of us. They allowed masks up until the start of the game. They were a little stricter on barrel condoms because of this. They were polite about it though.
Field- They are currently recovering from the previous owners of this field (cousin's). However, the fields they have are awesome. Something for every player. A city field. A complete woods field. A field with corrugated pipes, and a Normandy recreation. The last one may be leaving soon, as they said they were planning on scrapping and redoing that area. They also have an air-ball and x-ball field for all you speedball players.
Hours of Operation- Typical here. Walk-ons Sat and Sun, 9-5. Reservations whenever. They have speedball under the lights at some point, but I don't know when.
Prices- BYOP on open days. 45. FLAT. Enough said. But even their field paint prices are awesome. Own gear + case + all day air = 75ish. Field paint for when we played was Marbs.
Rules- The rules are really the same where ever you go. They do enforce the rules.
Services- One of, if not the best. Chris is the owner, and he's a player. So he knows what we want, and expect. And he delivers. A buddy of mine had a problem on a gun while we were there. He spent a few hours trying to get it up, fixed and tuned a number of issues, but in the end, was unable to get it back up due to a lack of materials. But the part wasn't something you would expect to find on a field. Which leads to...
Proshop- They have everything needed to play. They focus more on being a field then a proshop, so they don't have much more. But if you need something, talk to Chris, and he can order whatever you need, and work out a fair price.
Staff/Refs- One of our ref's was a no call/no show. But our ref was still great. An awesome personality, and very fair.
Players- When I went up for the walk-on day, I made a few friends, and there was really a great bunch of people.
Facilities- Pick a tree. There is also a port-a-potty. Works for me.
Food- Can order pizza, have some snacks and drinks on-hand. We brought our own stuff here.
My rating is a 10. Go they're, I'm sure most will agree. I know I'll be back. They are constantly working on their field to make sure its better and better.
They have big campaigns here as well, can't wait to check that out! Get the season pass! $150 for every walk-on day + every campaign + discounted paint? One of the best deal in paintball!!!
On-line directions or GPS will get you there with no problems.
I attended the 2010 Frozen Tundra Black Market Scenario game. This was an exceptionally well run event. Games & missions went off right on schedule. The refs were everywhere, in the thick of it, and making the calls. When the tide turned against the heavily outnumbered team, an adjustment was made and a "generous" reinsertion schedule for that team kept the action moving and prevented a shutout or masacre. I was on that outnumbered team, and ran for 5 hours straight. There was no waiting!
There are woods, villages, hyperball, and other fields available for whatever your style of play. I didn't see an airball/xball field, but I think there is one on the other side of the road. If you are considering bringing a group, Chris, the manager, will make sure you have a good time.
If you sign up for the Black Market Season Pass ($149.00), you get all of those games, plus weekend open play all season. It is a "field paint only" field, but prices weren't too bad. We used Polar Ice for the January game.
Pro shop is well stocked and helpful. CO2, 3000psi & 4500psi air all available with multiple fill stations. I never waited for air despite the large number of players.
At this event they sold snacks and water, but no meals. I think this may be different in the summer.
I put down that I have played at this field for 3 years. PSI has not been open this long. This field used to be run by a different owner/company. This was my first time here under the new owner who is working hard to make this a premier field. They are doing great so far.
I bought the pass and will be there alot this sumer.
Formerly known as Survival NY and then it was Cousin's and now is Paintball Sports NY. I have always enjoyed the field, location, atmosphere, and the functions done at the field.
Safety is one of my pet peeves and there has been no accidents to date since Paintball Sports took over the Facility. The Staff, and Referees keep this aspect first and foremost on the top of their tasks. The games comprised here is Woodsball, and some Speedball in many of their playing fields. And for those that are into "Airsoft", there are some games going on there as well. Check out the website: http://www.paintballsportsny.com and sign up to play. It's in my opinion, a great place to unwind and show teamwork while playing the sport.
I would recommend both for Teams and Company get-togethers to enjoy themselves.
