Review: I think the March 07 review below is for the wrong field; it sounds like he is describing Paintball Adventure Park, which has a similar name, but is 20 or so miles north up by Westminster/Taneytown, MD.

About this field (Adventure Park USA):
Realize up front that the paintball here is just a small part of a fairly small amusement park. This place has a roller coaster, mini-golf, go-carts, arcade, etc., and a single, small paintball course. It is a standard outdoor speedball field with not particularly well-placed bunkers. It is completely surrounded by netting, so spectators can easily watch. The ground is covered by round gravel, but in some spots the dirt/mud below is starting to come through.

The shop supplies and services the rental equipment, sells paint, and pretty much nothing else. I didn’t see any equipment for filling tanks of any kind. The rental gun is a short-barrel pistol and uses 55 cal paint. I think the smaller paint is promoted as being “lower impact”, meaning less bruises and such to the new/young players. They are field-paint only. They will allow you to bring your own gun, so they also have some normal 68 cal paint available for sale. The paint prices seemed pretty reasonable to me, with the rental 55 cal paint, at $45/2000. The 68 cal paint was priced higher, and I would guess doesn’t get used much so is probably not very fresh.

The staff isn’t particularly knowledgeable about paintball, but they do try. If you specifically ask, they will run a paintcheck, but they also would let players fire their guns in the staging area without masks on. I never saw a chrono, and even though the rental guns were all “set at the right speed already”, some did seem to be shooting hot.

I was there midday on a Saturday, with temperatures in the 40’s. There were 15 or so people playing, all kids or young teenagers (except for me). Everyone used the rental equipment. I was worried that the CO2 on the guns or the paint would have issues with the cold, but the guns seemed to work fine and the paint broke on the target at a reasonable rate. I brought six eleven year-olds to play, only one who had played before, and they all had a good time.

Bottom line:
I would not consider this a real paintball field, but for introducing people to the sport, it does a pretty good job. If you and your friends have played for a while and have your own gear, this field is not for you. If you’ve got some friends that are interested but you don’t want to put them up against the twibs with the $1000 uber-hoser 3000 guns, this is a good field to give them a little taste. If they don’t like it, they can always go ride the go-carts.

Review: I went in March of 2007, and I think that they've changed things, because I really enjoyed playing at this field. They were very safety conscious, always reminding people to put their barrel plugs in and wearing masks on the field. They did not require you to use their paint, and had paint to buy. $15 plays all day, with free air or CO2 (the air you fill yourself). They have an airball field where guys with high-end guns were shooting it out all day, and two woodsball fields. However, the one woodsball field I played one side won every single game, so I think that they may need to re-organize they way the bunkers are set up. Games go pretty quick, and there is not too much waiting around for a new game or walking miles to play.

My only complaint is that there were no snacks to buy there, and their shop was sparse.

Review: Don't come unless you've never played before or you completely suck. Sorry to say it that way but that's what it is. I wouldn't even call it a field. There is little to no safety (people shoot their guns in the staging area with no masks on), the one field is made completely out of wood and small bunkers, prices are high, you must buy their expensive paint, proshop has litterly nothing (no refills, only paint, rental guns and camo suits) refs don't do anything except watch the game (no paintchecks), you start out wherever you want on the field, there are a million little kids who don't want to get out and have never played before, and they all completely suck. And I've never even played there before, just watched a couple of games and then left. If you go and you've played even once before or if you own your own equipment then you will embarrass yourself. The owner knows nothing about paintball and is only concerned about making money. That's why he allows full-auto because if anyone brings their own guns, he figures they will use more paint. I think I've made it clear in my run-on sentance that I do not reccommend this place to any player even if new. It's cheaper and a better experience to take the young players to an actual paintball field where they can learn the game. TERRIBLE FIELD.

Review: This place is very strict, you cant use your own paint or anything. this is not a good place to play unless you are a beginner and would like to take your kids to have some fun. The paint selection is very small and the course is not great. Bad selection of bunkers, and its not a place for the big guy or the skilled player. Recreation players only
