OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND... I have played in Snow and Sun on Sundays. I have drove through ice storms, snow storms and pouring rain just to buy parts. It is the only place in the area that has store and field hours all season, we just lucked out that it is so amazing.
REVIEW RATINGS...
Customer Service 5 out of 5... They fixed my SLG UL for less then I spent on lunch!!!!!!! They have bent over backwards(free tech Wednesday night) to help me learn my SLG UL and how to keep it maintained. They keep prices low and still manage to employ knowledgeable and friendly people. I find it impossible to give them anything less than perfect because they do the same for me!!!!!
Quality of Fields 4 out of 5... I wish there was a 3/4 star for the 5th star because they deserve a better rating than a 4 star. The the Fort is in need of a renovation. It was the funnest part of any game I have EVER played and it needs to stay... just needs some steps, new wood, and fresh work. The last time i played they ran out of winter paint in winter. Made the day a little harder for everyone to learn how to play without winter paint. Nobody is perfect... especially me.
Fun/Experience 5 out of 5...
They are in the top 5 days I have EVER had playing paintball. They are tied my best day of paintball ever and it is very hard to make it on the list... since I built my own private range(started it the day I got back from my first game at Pentagon!)
Value 4 out of 5... I cannot stress enough that they have the best prices in the area. I have seen places with 80$ a case paint only... Pentagon can split that almost in half. I am a business man and the simple truth is that they need to earn a profit or I would have no place play. Once again I wish they had a 3/4 star for the fifth star.

SAFETY... The Safety at this field is top notch, The safe environment that is promoted by the Staff tends to spread among the players and that means everyone helps to keep you safe!
FIELDS... 5 fields that I played were set up in a way to maximize space, objects, direction of fire, safety, and accessibility, that only years of experience can create. The fort in the woods is a absolute blast! A trail leads around it with obstacles place for attackers and defenders alike. The fort is showing its age but PLEASE don't get rid of the fort(maybe renovation?) The other fields include a "Postal field" made of postal packing crates, Urban with spools and barrels, Air ball, and the Depot field with two forts, plenty of obstacles and a village. I didn't get to play a smaller field off the pavilion that was for small 1on1 or 2 on 2 games and there were no scenario's games that Sunday.
PRICES... like any store, of any kind, pricing depends on what exact product you buy. I have found there prices on equipment are great, they carry a wide variety of paint(cheap to "top of the line"), Air/C02 is very competitive(check out the air cards... Amazing price), and accessories vary depending on trends.
RULES... Rules at this field go along with safety for the most part. They are clear, stated, spoken, and repeated for everyone. They are very fair and understanding of new players and experienced players alike. They even have a GIANT sign stating that they ARE the SAFEST field in the Tri-state area(PA/NY/OH).
SERVICES... I have the luxury of being able to machine and repair my own fleet of paintball equipment so I am unable to comment on most of their services. I can however say that FREE TECH WEDNESDAY is a very informative and an amazing service that helped me understand my new electronic marker in a whole new respect.
PRO SHOP... I can just stand and stare at all the equipment in stock for hours.. and I would still see something new the next time. I have visited the pro shop several times and am still amazed at the great staffing, service, and products that are offered.
STAFF... Their staff is polite, fun, energetic, informative, knowledgeable, fair, and the list could go on for hours Definitely a eleven out of ten!!
REFS... Amazing.
PLAYERS... To have that many players together with no problems is a very hard and they seem to handle all concerns with an attitude that promotes enjoying the sport. The players that came were all having lots of fun.
FACILITIES... Once again you can see the years of experience coming together to make a modern, enjoyable facility with prices for all types of players.
FOOD... I didn't get a chance to try out anything from the vending machines, but I hear that their BBQ is fired up occasionally and is great!! I was having so much fun I forgot to eat!!!

SPECS... Sunday Open play is Semi Automatic mode for Electronic guns, 300fps max (chronograph at entrance to field), Field Paint Only, Store Hours Wed - Fri 2-9 PM Sat - Sun 11-5 PM

Pros:

Store - Pentagon has a nice store with all kinds of equipment. They have beginners gear, high end gear they have it all. If they don't have, they can order it for you and it always get there quickly. They always have a great deal of items in stock. They have high end $1300 guns as well as spyders, tippmans, etc. They have all the best gear and all the best deals on anything you could possibly want/need for your paintball experience.

Fields - Pentagon has 6 fields for all varieties of players. It is basically half speedball half woodsball. The have a huge fort field where you can run through the woods and attack or defend a fort. The have an airball field for the serious/tournament players. They also have 2 more speedball fiedls (Postal and Arena) and 2 more Woodsball/scenarion type fields )Urban and Depot). There is a once a year field fee which is $15 but that is great! Most fields cost $20 every day of play. This is only once a year!

Players - Pentagon has a wide variety of players any where from the newb, to the players with 5+ years of experience and then the weekend rec ballers as well. Every week new players come and every week players are there no matter how good or bad the weather is.

Staff - The staff are extremely nice. They always have great deals and it is a family run buisiness so they are kind to all customers and treat you like family. The techs are nice. If you have any problems at all they will try to help you as quick as possible because they know you want to get back on the field and play. They are nice and work quickly and efficiently.


Not really any cons about Pentagon except for the fact that there are a lot of players that like the scenario fields and I am a speedball player so I would rather play more speedball. It would also be nice to have an indoor field, but its good to get fresh air.

Overall Pentagon is a great field to play at. I play there almost every weekend so this basically sums up what you should expect when you go there to play. If you don't believe me, go there and see for yourself. They will help you with anything you need.

Proshop: The proshop is open often enough for it to never be an issue. You can get stuff during the week, get stuff fixed, and whatever you need. They also have a good bit of stuff in stock

The only cons are the marker selection, they dont have many other top performing guns other than PE, although they can get it if you want it. They choose to stock only what they know they can sell, cant knock that. The pricing is fair, and once shipping is considered, even their items that are slightly high in price meet or beat online retailers.

Fields: They have a bunch of fields to play, and you can play all day and never get bored. They have a very nice woods/fort style field, and it is very enjoyable with 40-50 players or more per side.

The only real cons are the lack of tournament players, but the area doesnt have enough people at that level. There are drill/practice sessions held every sunday, so there is a focus on it. If the support for more is there, the field seems willing to change.

Refs/Other: Never an issue. Follow the rules like everywhere else.

I've played at Pentagon intermittently for the last 10 years. I have family that lives in the Erie area and I'll bring my gear home on occasion when I visit.

Even though the interior of their store has changed on several occasions, the operation of the field hasn't. Their customer service is some of the best I've seen or experienced. The staff has always been friendly, helpful and engaging. This is clearly a flow down from the owners who have been very accomodating and helpful during every one of my visits. I'm impressed that they buy and grill burgers/hot dogs for the players on a regular basis. Their operation is smooth and consistent...exactly what you'd expect from a high quality operation.

Their major issue is real estate. Unlike other fields, they only have so much property to construct fields and play on. This inhibits their ability to construct new or diverse fields. Most of the fields are similar to those we played on in 2002. The layouts, while challenging, are predictable.

The costs to play and for paint are about average relative to other fields in the US. Their "free" days on Sunday are a unique aspect of their field. This is more of a recball than a tournament ball scene and that leads to a better player base IMO. The majority of players are considerate, don't cheat or engage in dishonest behavior. The sportsmanship has generally been good. The last time I was there (in December 2011) I was a little dismayed by the amount of players on the sidelines encouraging the refs to make questionable calls for the benefit of their friends on the other side of the field. The reffing, while generally good and consistent, was a little bit off that day.

A consistent operation with a bright future, Pentagon Paintball is a great operation for the Erie area.
