Sutton Drive-In Could be Sold
The Sutton Drive-In has been used for a number of months as a paintball field. However, AirSoft, the paintball company which has been playing games there, just announced this on their site:
“We regret to inform our customers that we have been notified by our landlord that they are exercising their option to accept a long term development deal and possible sale of the property to a non-Airsoft related business at the site in Sutton. Although we had hoped to continue our lease on the property going forward we respect their decision and wish them luck with their project.
This does mean effective immediately we are closing the Sutton location as dismantling the field and moving things will take some time. We have arranged a temporary outdoor woodland field for use for our remaining scheduled operations in 2013 and are working on a more permanent replacement for the field.
We appreciate all the support our customers have given us, and we had great plans this year for developing the Sutton site into a premier field so this is a disappointment for us.”
It’s a great shame that we’ve lost such a fun outdoor exercise opportunity in Sutton. It’s also curious, just what will happen with the drive-in location. Will it become a drive-in again? Or have we lost all hope of that?
