It was basically up to us to assign teams and ref our own game. Now, as someone whose played before, one team goes to one side and one team takes the other, when everyone from one team is out, you switch sides and start again. Someone (a ref normally, however, there wasnt one in this case) gives a countdown and then go. What we got was one man saying "teams ready?" and then a hail of paintballs. Another rule no one seemed to follow was if youre hit you go out, which yes, I dont expect from rental kids. So people like me, who follow normal paintball rules, would get hit and then have to run through the enemy team with my gun up to say im out to exit the arena. People then came out after getting shot, got more paint and then went back in. I was extremely confused to say the least. How were we supposed to know when the other team was eliminated? How were we supposed to get back to the other side of the field without getting shot out again? The field we were playing on, which was their scenario/woodsball field only lit from one side but I did like their setup and bunker selection. One final thing, no one really observed the 10 foot rule so that you dont break the skin of the person youre shooting. For me this was a non-factor because i play games (speedball) where there is no distance rule, but the fact that it wasnt enforced with beginners is a bad show on the fields part. Also, no one was there to cronograph the guns being used, a common practice at other establishments to make sure no one is shooting at dangerous speeds, so i could have shot 350 feet per second and really hurt someone and no one would have been the wiser as to what happened. (However, being a player of good conscience, did not do this) Anyway, the night was not over. After that "game" if you could call it that was "over" all the participants came out of the netting (Some without putting on the proper safety checks to make sure their gun didnt misfire) and were joking around, with loaded and aired up paintball guns! Even worse two gentlemen were having a standoff outside of the arena, with loaded guns, without goggle systems on, egging each other on to shoot each other. Which should never, ever happen considering if a paintball hits you in the face, worse the eye, more likely than not you will be in a great amount of pain and most likely go blind. Eventually one started firing the gun at the other IN THE STAGING AREA around people who did not have their goggles on. I was shocked and appalled (and could see this coming from a mile away, telling my girlfriend to put her goggles back on as I did as well because I knew this would not end well) these men were not banned from the field. Places like CPX, Badlandz, or Paintball Explosion have no tolerance for this behavior. It was disgusting and what gives paintball a bad name. The counter guy came by 30 seconds after the two men ran back into the arena shooting each other no goggles on and even he seemed indifferent about the situation like i could imagine him saying in his head "Is this really worth my time?" Which yes, it should be considering these grown men are acting like children with guns, however non-lethal they may be, around children who they could possibly very seriously injure. And yes, I know you have to sign a waiver but we still need to act like adults when were possessing weapons, and thats coming from a 19 year old. After that show, I was done and soon left with my girlfriend, aplogizing to her profusely. Please, please, please. As someone who plays paintball, do not frequent this field. If you want a real good paintball experience take your money and do business at places like I mentioned above (CPX, Badlandz, or Paintball Explosion) Although these places may have somewhat higher prices, but I consider it to be all worth it considering what I witnessed this friday. Also, I have no affiliation with these places only that I know that the staff there is professional and will take care of beginners unlike Fun Time Square. Will never be returning to FTS. TL;DR: No refs, bad clientel, never return
Very disappointing-Do not book any kind of party at this dump!!! Booked a party a few weeks prior for my son and his friends birthday party to play paintball. Called a few days prior to confirm my party and let them know how many people we were expecting. We had the party scheduled from 12-2, showed up before 12 and no one had any clue about our party. The place was very crowded, it took them 50 minutes to get the equipment together for the kids. The party that was supposed to start at 12 started finally at 12:55. I went to speak with the manager who was a complete idiot and looked at me like I was crazy that I was expecting to have the party ready that I booked weeks in advance. Asked me what I wanted him to do about it. Very unprofessional. The owner pulled up and I explained what happened to him. His response was we could play all day if we wanted. Well great, he told me we could play all day when I booked the party. This doesnt help when you have parents dropping their kids off at 12 and picking them up at 2. Not one person was ever supervising the paint ball field. Besides dealing with staff, a manager and owner that could absolutely care less about anything, the place was a complete dump, crap everywhere and conditions were not safe because paintballs were flying out of the playing area where little kids were sitting because the netting was not closed all the way. This place is a lawsuit waiting to happen.......
For the record, I only rated this place one star because there wasnt a lower option. We decided go paintballing at this location for my fathers birthday celebration with the family. We called ahead of time to ensure that the size of our group would be acceptable. We called again to confirm the previous call. We packed our cars (with 18 people) and made the (nowhere near short) trip to to Fun Times Square, only to be told that there "are no more paint balls." A Paintball arena with no paintballs. Like any location that failed to deliver a product that had been previously promised to the consumer, one would expect at least an apology. However, the employee that was present at the time began to raise his voice, "i said there are NO MORE paintballs!" I couldnt believe the level of disrespect and the lack of professional composure. This man refused to give his name and to allow us to speak to another employee that could help us. I really want to go back in the morning and find a manager to speak with. I will tell everyone that even thinks about going to this place not to. The staff is nowhere near professional and clearly someone forgot to restock the paintball arena with paintballs.
They have kids running this place. I paid for 3 round of golf. The course was full of leaves, branches and dirt by the 2nd hole. I asked a young girl at the counter to get someone out there to clean it. She said someone will come right away. After 5 minutes I picked up their leaf blower and cleaned 17 of 18 holes myself. By the time I got to the 5th hole I saw the young lady again and once again she told me someone is coming. No one ever came. I went up to the counter to ask for the manager she said she would go get him and still no one ever came.
