im glad im not the only one who sees an abandoned building and wishes they had the money to buy it for playing. cleveland has plenty of them

on a side note, i wonder how much asbestos youd have to remove in the first place

According to the website itself:

Grossinger's is set to be completely demolished and rebuilt as a full service luxury boutique hotel with 200 rooms
At first I thought, they would not care then if it gets used for paintball... since its getting demo'd.. but the fact that its getting rebuilt means that people are investing a lot of money, and do not want the liability associated with that.

Plenty of abandoned buildings around though. Especially with the housing-market crash. Lots of stuff got started 4-5 years ago, and then ran out of money, buyers, etc.

The -absolute- best field I've ever played at was Paintball Passion in Lewiston. It was an indoor field inside of an old abandoned ENCLOSED horsetrack stadium.

It was awesome. It had 3 levels. The first was the horse stables, used for speedball. The 2nd was the stadium seats, normally used for open-play, and the 3rd was a office-spaces, used for "urban combat". The 3rd floor was lighted mostly with black-lights, strobe-lights, with fog machines, etc.

Twice a year they would have a scenerio that used all three levels. God-damn-awesome. Sorta like EMR Castle, they would usually put a handfull of the best players (usually NE Express members) on the third floor, and everyone else starting OUTSIDE. You then had to battle your way into the first floor, then second, then third.

The hardest part? Friggen stairs. No way to get up unless you freight train it. The field closed though, about 18 years ago. His liability insurance was through the roof. Shame.

HP - While I want to believe the website.... there is already a butt load of development going on down there... with nothing selling.

It's more of a prep thing on this end as I will end up reviewing some portion of that project. His other project "The Concord" is stalled (another resort redevelopment)... I think he submitted a draft EIS... but it wasn't complete... and I haven't even seen it yet.

That's awesome for an indoor compound to play in! It's a shame we can't use our abandoned Sheraton Hotel. It's been fenced off :S

There's a ton of videos on our SPbTV channel of Benny playing this very place. They even did one with zombies he had to find in the office building.
