A friend told me about this field before i ever went, and then we went there once. his dad apparently knew someone at work who had a position as a ref. or something. it was nice to be able to go somewhere where you pay $15 dollars and get free air all day. just that and the BYOP make it very nice. also, one of the fields, the Village, is really neat.
the times i've gone were few and far between, but i haven't been very disappointed. i'm not sure how often they change the speedball fields.
The Bad: once i was playing at the Bayou and some jerk (on my team!) thought it was funny to just take pot shots at me. this went on for about two minutes, he'd take about six shots, then stop, then take six more shots. i was already out, and when i told the ref, who was probably only as old as me, he told me to calm down! i wasn't really that excited, but he did get about five nice shots on me. then i walked off the field and he shot at me again!
Don't let that keep you from going: it is i nice place, and makes you want to quit going to people's houses. also, that was only one instance.
Another thing that they could work on is the welcome. it seems to be a rather cultish place where you feel left out because they host a lot of team practice and such. but that isn't a big deal. also, the refs are really nice. but i do think that they should switch the ROF rules: only semi on speedball and whatever you want in woodsball.
It's on Fraklin Church Road, which is in the Dillsburg area
This field is a really great social field. Everything here is great. The people, the prices, and the fields. The best things about this place is that the paint is BYOP or they sell paint for prices better than sporting goods stores. 2000 Marballizer is 60 dollars.
The second is that the people there act more like friends toward each other rather than a business trying to make money.
And while they are all very nice, they won't take your crap, or anyone else's. So I feel quite safe here.
The only thing I don't like is probably that the refs have a lunch break all at once, so you can't play for about 30 minutes at one point.
First i would like to start off saying the owner of this place (Sheldon) is super nice and always offers help with anything when needed. He is one of the reasons i always play at his fields. The refs are good too. They all have walkie talkies to communicate and always know what is going on. This place is very well organized. The refs call when the next games are going to be shipping out to a particular field. They also try to make the teams fair as possibly (Not putting a bunch of 10 year old kids with 22 year olds who have been playing for years). The fields Wanna play has to offer are awesome. 8 fields all together. Stix, The bayou, Lego land,Tombstone village, Hoochie man, and they also have 2 speedball fields X-BALL and NPPL and a Hyper ball field. They also rent better guns than alot of places around here. They rent spyder espirits, which Shoot pretty nice. The only problem with the rentals is that they have a bright yellow hopper on them and that can give you away. They always give a safety presentation and are pretty much are always reminding people to keep their masks on at all times and stressing safety in general, which is good. A big factor in making Wanna Play great, are its prices. The prices are very good. 15$ (Field fees, all day air) if you have your own equipment. 25$ For a basic rental package which includes Electronic gun rental, compressed air tank, all day air, thermal googles (Full Mask), a guppie pack (2 pods & a belt to hold em) and a hopper. The ultimate package includes everything the basic rental package has plus a camo outfit & 500 paintballs. The cases of paint range from 35 to 60 roughly. 35 for white box and they get better the more you spend. And really all i use is white box and i rarely have breaks. Wanna Play also has a pro shop which is great i have spent over 900$ at least in that place. I bought a Smart Parts Epiphany from him and i love it. Overall i love this place and this is the only field i go to now and i will continue to give "The Boss" (Sheldon) My business as long as everything that he is doing now stays the same or gets better. I strongly advise new or experienced players to check this place out, its amazing.

Outlaw Paintball-It's only indoor and is closing soon, so I cant really compare it.
Pevs @ AG Leesburg--Much more professional and with a larger selection of fields. Airball is rarely open, however.
I have been going to Outlaw for the past few months and like it a fair amount. The reffs are very friendly and easy to get along with. It is also fairly cheap ($15 for all day air and play) and they allow you to bring your own paint, which is a huge plus.
As far as the fields go, they don't really have much to offer, but what they have gets the job done. They have one Hyperball field which is pretty terrible, but they only use it for first time players, so it's not a huge deal. They also have a few woodsball fields which are alright. There are some pretty cool bunkers on a few of them. As for airball, I was quite impressed. They have an Xball field as well as an NPPL field. They are both pretty good and the only real problem with them is the lack of grass in some crucial spots (it hurts to superman into a dirt snake).
The only real gripe I have with the field is the lack of safety precausions. Safety is not prioritized as much as it should be, and players really end up having to pay attention to what's going on a lot. The reffs make sure that players have their masks on while playing, but commonly their are markers without covers in dead zones and at the parking lot. They also allow barrel plugs which are not particularly safe. I'm not saying that they do not try to be safe. Their are mandatory safety briefings and reffs make sure people know when games are starting and have masks on. I just feel like when I walk off of the airall field, I want to personally check and make sure everyone's guns are covered. With all of this said, I really do like Wannaplay. It's a good place to go if you want to spend a day playing some casual airball or woodsball.
GnR, Outlaw, Revo............. GNR is nice, WPP is well run
WPP is nice, I like to play there whenever I can. The only thing I have a problem with was when the Punisher Punks were there and were allowed to take their masks off down at the field and when we did it, we got kicked out. Other than that it's all good. Refs arnt too bad, but dont seem to be real enthusiastic.
the field is about 3 miles south of Dillsburg on Rt 15
the field is easy to find and everthing there is kept up with and there is plenty of parking and the staging area is near the fields. The have it all there for the speed ballers and the woods players. all the fields have always been kept up with when I been there and there prices can't be beat and there a byob field the staff is good and they do seem to do a good job. They have table there to eat or place equipment and they do have air and co2. The only real problem I ever had there is fill my 4500psi tank full but other then that it's a great place to play
WPP, run by the Boss, AKA Sheldon, is definetely is competition for one of the best fields around, with maybe EMR taking first. It has both woodsball and speedball: A Chronic field, an X-ball, hyperball, and 5 woodsball fields.
The refs are very saftey concious, and put a good effort into making fair calls. If you call paintcheck, they will not walk, but run, and probably slide in to check you. That's the way it should be done.
The paint is very fairly priced. At times, it may have a few dimples on it, but that rarely seems to cause any problems. Besides, with a paint like Evil for $45, you can't go wrong. Now, everytime I'm there, they seem to have different paints, so if you get real attached to one, call before coming, and see if there is any left. If not, you can BYOP. Admission is the standard $15, and they have HPA and Co2.
Great field, I recommend it to all.

Linglestown Paintball - horrible field
Ski Round Top Revolution - alright field, but lacking when compared to WPP
I've played at WPP about 6 times, and counting. They have 2 airball fields (a chronic field and an x-ball field) and many woodsball courses.
I really only have one problem with WPP. On sunday's their X-Ball field is permanently taken up by the punisher punks -- that's fine and I completely understand. However, on Saturdays (the only time the field is open to rec ballers) the field isn't blown up in a reasonable amount of time. I often show up at 10:30ish and when I get tired and have had enough for the day (around 3:30ish) their x-ball field is still not ready for play.
If they could prepare the field earlier, then this place would be absolutely perfect for speeballers.
Pretty much everything else is good. Their prices are GREAT. $33 for a case of 2,000 paintballs (that will usually last me 2 full days of playing). At first I thought to myself "I wonder what's wrong with these..." but they shoot great and the only break I've ever had with them was because of my own fault. The field fee is $15. About average.
I love their setup -- I hate fields that make you haul your gear to some staging area where it's not safe. At WPP I'm able to keep everything I own in the trunk of my car. Theft was a huge problem at Linglestown Paintball (aka Foxhole Paintball) however I have no fear of that happening at WPP.
Their chronic field is nice and they change the bunkers around from weekend to weekend. Their hyperball field is pretty intense as well. For woodsball, they have various courses, all of which have their own unique play style.
The Refs are all really nice guys. They're not disrespectful and they're willing to help out people. The field is very safe. They enforce barrel plug and mask safety strongly. Obey the rules, and you'll be fine. There is a 10 foot surrender rule when playing with newer players in a woodballs setting -- however -- this rule is usually tossed aside when playing airball (if everyone agrees.)
The players seem to be nicer down there too. I like speedball, but I hate cocky little kids who think they're the best in the world. WPP does not have many of these guys, and if I find I'm not having a fun time with speedball I can always hop over to the woodsball games.
Overall I'm giving this a 9/10. Their refs, fields, and prices are all awesome. The only suggestion I have to the WPP staff is to air up the X-Ball field earlier on Saturdays.
Go to WPP - you'll love it no matter what you play.
Hello, My name is Sheldon Danley owner of Wanna-Play Paintball. I do not usually post here but I feel it is necessary to give my side of the story pertaining to the last 3 posts.
1) At WPP we give "Safety Presentations" throughout the day. This is announced over the PA system. It is the players responsibility to attend.
2) When the group of young men in question arrived they expressed that they were going to practice with another team "Punisher Punks" . In this situation most teams ref themselves and are responsible.
3)After the Punks left the group continued to play by themselves and never requested to join in with the Recreational Players who are ALWAYS reffed, nor did they ask for someone to ref their games.
4) One of my lead referees came to me and said he had to confront them about wearing their goggles to which some of them made some smart comments. We have a Zero Tolerance rule for not wearing goggles but he cut them some slack and gave them a second chance.
5) About an hour or so later another referee came to me and said not only were they not wearing their goggles but that they were shooting into the air with no eye protection on.
6) Only then did I approach them in a not so friendly manner and told them they were packing up and heading out. I may not have directed my frustration at the correct individuals ( To those players I apologize) But my point was that regardless what one fields rules are does not mean that it applies to all fields (ie. WPP) The ages of the players had no bearing on my reaction. Be it 15 or 51 if your not going to be safe then you will be asked to leave.
7) Some of what they said is true. Our netting is in bad shape due to winter and the NEW netting is coming Wed. Our fields are well taken care of and our staff takes a lot of pride in what they bring to the customers.
8) Finally I would like to let each one of these individuals know I have no hard feelings towards them and wish them well in our Young Guns tournament this weekend. I just ask that they as well as every other player "PLAY SAFE" or it will lead to the end of Paintball for everybody.
