Yea we might not get a lot of play time right now but on most days we get 3 hours of play.

I understand there is overhead and bills but for 24.99 +hst I assume alot of guy will just pack a van or 2 up and hit up the Tdot area for indoor
$25 is standard price for indoor action in Toronto, HST has whacked everyone.. suck it up.

I charge $20 at TTAC3 Typical sessions are 2.5 to 3 hours , this is the most people can take of the kind of close quarters action we do at TTAC3

I have found that most players have about 1.5 to 2 hours of solid play in them... after that they start to get tired.. and take long rests.

so 25 + tax is pretty standard.. and 3 hours is more play than most guys do anyway ... it's still less than $10 a hour per person .. pretty cheap entertain ment.. you pay more to go sit on your ass in a movie

Yeah, but I can understand it if it's T.O. cause of course rent is more expensive.

How big is your facility Brian? Been meaning to come up and check it out sometime.

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

Small... about 4000 square feet , but we have the advantage of being able to set up any arrangement of structures we like.. it's never the same twice.

My facility is more geared to training than play... though it is quite amazing how much fun can be had in a small space.

We have to keep groups small , 10- 14 people is perfect


Commercial rent costs for warehouse space do not differ substantially in larger urban areas ... though rent is the largest single line item .. overhead is composed of a lot of fixed costs ..

Personally I can't stand playing at indoor paintball venues... the goo is just too much , outdoor venues are bad enough .. but at least weather degrades the goo and washes it away...

Splatters in Toronto.. is simply nasty... I'm not afraid to get dirty.. but the 3 hours of gear maintenance post game is a serious detraction ..

In TO I would expect more for fees cause rent it a lot more, like renting an apartment or anything else.

I am just saying for the area that's pricey at 24.99 per head with no details

game rules would help
is it heated and if so at what temp so we know what to gear up for

you can say it will hold 50 players, but thats 50 players playing speedball, transfer that to airsoft and what does it work out to???

not saying I will not play there, just saying some details would be nice for that price

Best thing to do would be check it out, you would know in 1 visit if it was worth a return visit.
