Thumbs down Don't waste your time

Zero Stars!

A group and I paid to do their Zombie Safari Hunt at their East Dundee location in Santa's Village. The concept is an excellent idea, but it was poorly executed and a huge rip off. They gave us a minimal 50 paint balls in the gun (After what I had witnessed I'm not even sure if it was 50). Anyways, the staff urges and pressures you making you think you have to buy extra (150 paint balls for $15). Then they go and short everybody on the amount they purchase by more than 20 per a canister (we had time to count while standing in the lengthy line while the staff annoyingly blasted us with the megaphones from only a few feet away).

Once on the field, we had to stay on a path, the zombies stayed far away and with the poor lighting and junk masks that you couldn't see out of combined with the serverly weakened guns, it was unclear where our paint balls were going or if they were even reaching the target. The staff kept rushing us through the checkpoints (I think there was a total of 3 of them) only being allowed to fire for about 30 seconds at a time. The staff also failed to provide us with any kind of warning that we were about to reach the end of it, just "turn in your masks and guns and get out".

If you have paint balls left over, it's tough luck for you. There isn't anything set up to dump the rest of them on. You are forced in to 1 of 3 options, though, they only provided 2 of them to us.
1. You have to purchase another pass to go again so you can use what you have left.
2. Take them home with you (which they didn't even mention as an option until somebody had asked. It's just too bad they asked after most of the people had already turned in their things and exited)
3. Turn them in with the gun (which they then turn around and resell to some other schmuck).

I'm highly displeased with the whole ordeal, huge rip off! The owners/management and staff should be ashamed of taking advantage of the customers like they do.

It is a poor business model that only concerns itself to maximize profits and deceive the clientele.

Maybe there is a disconnect between the ownership and management. However, if the ownership truly has no idea with how their business is being ran, then they are still to blame and need to be more involved. If they are in fact well aware, then hopefully people catch on and the place is forced to close it's doors due to lack of revenue.

I don't work for the field, but I know that they do a top notch job.
This is like a lot of things in life, if you build an unrealistic expectation around something then you will always be disappointed.
You have to remember that they were real people that people are shooting at and while they get paid to be hit, they don't get paid to be abused.
If you want to play paintball, then go play paintball.

I am going to take a wild guess that you probably posted this just to hate on this field. People don't just create PBNation accounts out of the blue.
Non-paintballers don't even know this site exists.
Half of paintballers don't even post on this site.
You could have at least had the balls to use your real account.

You have most likely called it like it is on this. So far the zombie hunt, as I hear has been a success for the field. Not to mention it's one of the few actually run by a real paintball field so they know where to give you your value at.

I also heard it was a success, I'd like to see what the owner has to say about this. I've only played at pbx for team practice so I havnt really had much experience dealing with staff.

Other than creating your profile the day this was posted (this being the only thing you've posted), I'd say you're just someone looking to stir up trouble.
