16 of my friends and I went to go paintballing at BOLP. Most of us never played paintball before, but BOLP made it an amazing first time experience. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We had so much, and everyone was so pumped. The speedball was fast and intensive while the woods was suspenseful and equally intense. We all had so much and we're so glad that we went. In conclusion, BOLP rocks!

Directions to the Field:
well its really simple from dover, just go straight on 155 intill you have to go right or left go right, and its like 50 feet on the left.
well, i went the 15th for opening day, which was a good day. it was raining. it was cold, but everyone seemed to get along better as we all tryed to keep our tarp up and keep our stuff dry. immediatly when i got there i was introduced to the staff. which are all ballers and play more then they ref! the paint, INEXPENSIVE it is also a good quality. i was very surprised but i got the same amount of good shots as osg's nightmare. the paint was a little thick, i mean i got shot directly in trhe middle of the chest with no break, i called myself out on that one. other than that it is great at 55 for 2,000. at that price you can play all day. which i did on the 22nd.
the 22nd was a warm sunny day. almost as many people came. the paint shot well and we all had lots of fun, i stayed from 8-5 and had the best experience ever.
the field is amazing. it is set up perfect for 3-5 man teams. you could fit as many as 10 on a team and it probably wouldnt be that bad either,
MORE ON STAFF
i learned who everyone was within 30 minutes. it was hard because they all looked like players but they were real profecional as well. they hotfill at about 3,000 if you have a 3000 tank so i got 2.500 which was good.
the food and drinks are a good price. admission is only 5 bucks. amazing
over all the field gets a 10 because everyone is amazingly friendly, always looking for new ways to improve service and the field is a really relaxed place that has amazing action. i probably missed something...but its great.
OSG Paintball - The speedball field at OSG is nothing compared to BOLP.
Canobie Paintball - Staff isnt the best here, good fields though.
AG Paintball - Management was bad last time I went. Under New Management now.

I went to this field last weekend expecting to have a not so fun time. It was raining like crazy, and of course later switched to snow. Once I walked outback to the field my expectations immediately changed. The speedball field (2005 NXL X BALL) is huge. It is 200 x 100, and has netting 20 feet high around all sides. The staging area is right next to the snake showing lots of action if just sitting and spectating. I played the speedball field all day and had the most fun I have had in a long long time. The staff at BOLP was great, everyone asked me if I needed anything, and if I did not to hesitate to ask. BOLP has a nice trailer where you can purchase everything from paint to food, drinks, and paintball gear. There is always someone around to help you with your every needs. The paint(Hotbox) I was very skeptical about, I had heard some bad reviews about it. I was surprised to see how good it turned out. I used an All American .688 and the paint shot awesome. The paint in fact shot better than paint I have used at previous fields. I don't understand why the paint has bad reviews elsewhere, again it shot great! There was also a professional photographer at the field who took some amazing photos. He sells them up near the trailer. I recommend this field to anyone and everyone who wants to have a good time playing paintball.
