Question Feedback needed on a new painball park in Southern Indiana

How would Hoosiers feel about a new paintball park in Southern Indiana. I will be completing my service in the Army in 6 months and have had the idea to start a paintball park with several speedball , woodsball, and scenario based fields. The demographics of my area are minimal and am reaching out for feedback on those willing to venture out for something different.. I am currently looking at 67 acres for this to begin. What would keep everyone coming back for more? What would you want to see and participate in? The end result is roughly 50 acres of paintball and airsoft fields as well as an open area for camping for those wanting to stay a weekend with live entertainment after tourneys, and a concession area for refreshments. Thank You for your Feedback

The more fields available to players the better. Looks like you just joined PBN so I can't send you a Private Message yet. Send me one and I'll help you out.

I guess it depends on how far south you are talking. Between Indianapolis and the assylum field might be nice for some people. There are a couple decent fields around indy so staying clear of them, unless you are ok with competing, would probably be a good idea. If you planned for an indoor field, so people don't necessarily have to drive 2 hours to the plex or 2 hours to assylum to play in the winter that might be a good thing to think about.

In French Lick is what I'm looking at. There aren't many options for paintball in the South; just a very few that have a couple fields. I am looking at several outside and have a shell built for the indoor fields. I understand it may be to far south for some but for it being the only one over four fields could draw enough attention from Louisville, Evansville, and Bloomington.

You'll be competing against Battlegroundz and Asylum and at that point i would purely focus on rec side if you want any chance of survival Between Battlegroundz Asylum White River and Paintball Plex resources are basically tapped for new fields to grow unless your ready to throw some money into it to fight with the big dogs! Good Luck to you sir!!

Don't underestimate the importance of good fair refs for sure. Also maybe a cool clubhouse for people to hang out and relax between matches. Gotta make people leave the field telling their battle stories not how lame the place was.

Good to see a new field possibly coming. But, you're going to have a bar set pretty damn high in that area if you want to make it. More like a design for failure from the start.
