Hollywood Sport Park Paintball
We took all our staff and any members who wanted to join to this place for a company event. This place is an absolute blast, I have to say this is one of the most fun things I’ve done since living in the US and look forward to going here again. This place was very affordable (we took our entire staff and several clients who wanted to join here on the company and didn’t break the bank) They have multiple courses with different real world battle zones replicas, urban to desert warfare you get a fairly realistic tactical experience. You can rent guns and obviously protective gear from the facility. The guns are what you would expect from equipment with a high usage rate (they jam once in a while) but do the job very nicely, and lets be honest its not life and death so the odd jam you can put down to a character building experience (A couple times I got lit up when gun jammed) If you are a serious paint baller it probably goes without saying you probably have your own gun, or if you want to be a GI Joe go buy your own (be warned they are pretty expensive)
The course is located in Bellflower just outside Orange County. There is ample parking. There isn’t much breeze out there, so be prepared for the heat, and you get a pretty heavy sweat going running away from bullets all day (At least in your head that’s how it feels).
In reality the paintballs don’t hurt to badly if they hit you, however I do recommend guys (and girls probably) wear a cup, you don’t want to get one of these in the knackers, I would say you may need someone to drive you home.
The facility has decent food and drink options and also alcoholic beverages although if you don’t want to become target practice or shoot yourself in the foot I suggest don’t have to many. A couple of our people (wont name names) could have used a few to calm the anxiety. Anyway I highly recommend this place, whether you want to take your company out for a very fun bonding experience or you want to put a few bruises on your mates, this place is local, affordable and has everything you need for a great time.
