So my dad recently sold his business and we now have this big ass old industrial building. Its 3 stories and we've been trying to figure out what to do with it. I said we build a paintball field. Big first floor could be a cool urban course. Middle could be speedball, and a nice proshop up top. Just wondering if anyone knows what it would cost to get this all up and running and how we get certified and all that good stuff. Also, reballs instead of normal paint? Keep it cleaner inside but how would we pick them all up and would it be cost effective? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Throw some ideas out too if you got em

Defiantly use reballs, the old indoor field that I used to go to used paint and it was horribly dirty, in the field areas you could stick your figure into a half inch of paint goop on the walls, no joke it was nasty.

Reballs would help with costs,and you can charge x amount for all day paint,which sounds awesome to consumers.The only problem is that reballs don't mark,so cheaters could have an all day play pass.The problem with opening the field is that you need permits,licenses,etc.A plus with opening an indoor field is that you don't have to worry about netting,or things getting dirty.The biggest problem,IMO,is the sticker shock of opening a new field,especially since reballs are expensive at first.I would contact the company that makes reballs and ask them if they could give you a discount because you will probably be buying 20+ cases of them.And people never seem to understand all the little things add up.If you want a guide,PM me.
