Editorial Review

This facility has 20 outdoor fields with themed environments: the graveyard, the village and the compound are just a few. The latter field gives players a hand at amphibious combat; there is a 50-foot wide stream in the middle. A speedball court is also available. Because of its proximity to Washington, this paintball site is sometimes visited by congressional staff members, FBI agents and, in one instance, the Crown Prince of Bahrain, who was a student at American University. On the first Sunday of every month, the site hosts an old-school paintball tournament, where participants are limited to only 30 balls, increasing the battle's emphasis on strategy and sniping.

As of April, 2005, the first session of the day takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with registration beginning at 9 a.m. The day's second session runs from 2 to 5 p.m. with registration beginning at 1 p.m.

Players with their own equipment can play up to two sessions per day for $15. Various packages for rental equipment are also available.
