The hunt for an even cheaper, closer, and cooler paintball venue stops here! Fran Bar Park is expected to outperform SplatterPark and the CFC Paintball Armory in every category and CSS will be part of the action late July. The new location is friendly for those who need to rent equipment and those who already have their own---and the highlight of the area is that you can still bring your own paintballs! This will save on costs and let you be less conservative with your ammo.
Fran Bar Park is located just east of Columbus off of Broad Street towards Pataskala. There are eight different fields we can play on. The junkyard has bunkers, foxholes, and mazes. The woods has bunkers and the wilderness and the 'Haunted Hoochie' has buildings, a bridge, and towers you can hide in to name just a few fields. We will also be able to choose what games to play like: slayer, capture the flag, defend the fort, bounty hunter, zombie, rabbit, etc. There will be a lot of flexibility but since there will only be one ref, we must be mindful to keep safety first. Here are the prices:
$25: Rent their equipment which includes Tippmann pro carbine gun, a mask, and an air tank.
$10: Bring your own gear, marker (gun), mask, and paintballs.
$5: Deposit for barrel plug / armband
$3: CO2 Fills
I suggest everyone buy their paintballs at the General Merchandise store beforehand (it's right across the street at 13690 Broad Street SW).
