This place was pretty fun. The fields are in the woods, but it is nothing like traditional woodsball. They really did a good job designing it and coming up with the games. They do things like capture the flag and king of the hill, and some other ones. If you get shot you just have to sit out for a few minutes and then you can go back in.
It was a little expensive (25 dollars for field and air) but it was worth it. I will most likely go back again sometime.
I have just started playing this sport, but I can't imagine any field being better run than this one. The intricacies of the scenarios, the excellent placing of barriers and obstacles, and the environment all combine to make this the most fun imaginable.
Directions to the Field:
This field is located on Rt. 20, about 5 miles south of Route 3 in Locust Grove, VA.
The fields are awesome. There is no shortage of environments and scenarios available to play, and they are planning to expand a great deal more. The staff is extremely friendly, informative, and helpful, They really know thier stuff, and are always willing to help.
If I could offer one tip, it would be for the refs to pay a little bit more attention to boundary violations by players.

The layout of these fields were well designed(real scenario play).Its not just a bunch of stuff thrown in the middle of the woods.Tor and his crew are really on top of the game.if u have any problems they try they best to help.They even help u with strategy if u need it...
Everyone that i take to the field for the first time complains about the distance but once the day is over they wont want to go anywhere else.thats how good it is..and dont forget that they just opened.they still have other fields that there working on and i'm already satisfied with what they got.
Oh yeah and everything there is cheap and they rentals is bangin!!!!
Warplay is awesome. We didn't have that many people, but the way the field was designed and the five minute respawns made it seem like alot more. It is one of the most fun fields I have ever played... and it was cheap. Not only was it cheap, you got more for your money. The rental is an A5 with a response trigger (I didn't use one because I had my own, but still, that is an impressive equalizer.) A case of paint was cheap and the paint was high quality. The staff was very friendly and the refs did a good job. The fields, just like the site advertised, combined woodsball and speedball. They provided a realistic combat setting with a lot of action off the bat. The positions on the field were amazing. As someone said yesterday, "At Pevs, they nail a piece of plywood to a tree and call it the Maginoit Line." These were impressive. Combat was up close and personal. When you get hit, the absolute longest you can wait is 5 minutes. I can find nothing to complain about.

Have played at Pevs, Hogback, and Powerline. None compare to Warplay Paintball field. These themes are amazing, the land is perfectly sculpted, absolutely the best in the state.
Directions to the Field:
95 to Culpepper Virginia then Locust Grove ish area.
The safety of these fields are as good as can be, goggles on of course the standard rules, perfectly located spawn/out points. The themes and field structures are outstanding. They weren't too big nor too small. There is plenty of cover, but not too much where you just spray paint for no reason hoping to hit someone.
The refs are of a decent age, not 8 years old and immature.
The refs are aware of what's going on, and don't play favorites.
You can order lunch.
The fields are simply amazing
Family oriented style for the whole field.
**The rentals are A-5's equipped with Response Triggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**
The food is a small portion and hopefully will incorporate more options for lunch.
Kind of far away, but well worth it.
On certain themes the 4 minute spawn time rule seems quite short and you get out of breath.
Warplay Paintball is amazing, and once you try it, you will be stunned by the play.
-The fields are very well thought out.
-Fields are based on historical battles.
-Friendly Refs, and not some 10 year old kid like at Pevs who are all stuck up. They will also play with you sometimes.
-Cheap prices: $5 for lunch which includes chips, soda, and a sandwich.
$15 Entrance fee
$15 Full rental (A-5 Tippmann)
$3 for Pod rentals
-Break after every round for refills for air and paint.
-Sandwiches aren't big enough and they aren't the best.
-The fact that their other fields that are underdevelopment are not ready yet.
Looking foward for the D-Day field, based on the beaches of Normandy.
I have played at Pevs and also Hogback paintball fields. Neither of those compare to warplay paintball. They are good, but warplay is top notch
Directions to the Field:
This is the best paintball place around. Tor and his crew were in the marines, and designed this place perfectly. Every course is based on a battle in hstory, and since tor is also a history teacher, he has it mapped out perfectly. The atmosphere is so much better than everywhere else. It is relaxed here, people have a good time, but play seriously when its paintball time.
The rentals are tippmann A-5s with response triggers, better than anywhere else. They always make sure people are playing safely, and give advice on waht to do so that you can play beter. They give you suggestions and places that are good to capture.
The prices are amazing, not expensive, but a good price. The rules are like most other places, except if you get shot here, you are only out for a max of 4 minutes in a dead zone. The staff are all easy to get along with, and they make sure they do whatever they can for you to have a good time. I dont believe that I will go anywhere else again, since this field is so awesome. Most other places are just woods with some rope around it. Here, it is all put together and planned with a lot of thought.
Pevs in sterling which is an ok field but does not compare to the action at warplay.
This field is an action packed hard fight. The owner and employees are friendly and helpful. A great deal of thought has gone into the planing and construction of field. Safety like always is a major concern and refs will actually take a hit or numerous hits to protect a dead player from getting hit again. Fast action and not for that faint at heart. If you are afraid to get hit or engage the enemy don't play this field.
Had a great time here and will probably not play anywhere else. it is well worth the travel time of an hour or more to get here. Unlike other fields where if you get hit a minute into the game you are out until the end of the game, here you can re-spawn after four minutes and come back as reinforcements. I found the longest i was out was more like a minute and a half most of the time thirty seconds. Definitely get your moneys worth playing here.
The prices here are right on. Great deal. The owner and staff at Warplay are very friendly and courteous, they are there to make sure you have a fun and pleasant day.
If you like fast hard action come play here. You will not be disappointed. Hope to see you here for a great day of combat.
They have directions at http://www.warplaypaintball.com
All I can say is very impressive. Tor and his staff are very helpfull, personable and professional. Everyone there is a real pleasure to deal with and they go out of their way to make the experience enjoyable.
The field itself is a blast. It is more like a mix between speedball and woodsball. When they say go, its less that a minute when the shooting begins. They have done a great job building structures and setting up the field. Just go out to their website and check out the pictures. They currently have 3 scenarios and plans for more ... I'm looking forward to what they have in store.
Pricewise they are pretty much on spot. They are charging a fair price on paint and air refills and the 15 dollar field charge is worthy of the play.
We have gone there once, and are planning on many more trips!
