Help With Senior Project; Building a MOUT Facility.

Even though it is a few years down the road (two, to be precise), I would like to begin this ambitious project sooner rather than later. I plan to build an Airsoft/ Paintball MOUT (Military Operations in Urban Terrain) facility, that is, a small scale town to do battle in. An example would be the Jericho facility found via Google search. It is my hope to build this (mine, not Jericho) facility and make a profit from it, possibly turn it into a business. I know this is a major project, which is why I am asking for any advice you can give. Is there any way I can obtain cheap materials? Have any hints on buying or (hopefully) obtaining free land? Any advice at all will be appreciated.

if your going to make houses/bunkers than use ply wood because it is less expensive and more easey to build and nobody will brake the buildings if they are ok

Try looking around in houses-for-sale listings. Sometimes, they list empty lots, which can be bought in the same manner as a house. Good luck.
Make sure too keep zoning in mind. You can't start a business on a residential plot.

Hmmm, the lowest listing is 1.06 Acres for $85,000. Which brings on the next question: how many acres do I need?
I have no idea. Depends on you, pretty much.

NOTE: I'll be closing my account soon. fyi
Depends on how many "courses" you want. I've never played airsoft, but I've played paintball. A good outdoors, wooded course will be about 1/4 - 1/2 acre. I'd say buy a plot with some land next to it so there's room to expand if your endeavor becomes lucrative. Also, what makes you want to invest in recreation in this recession? You crazy, boy!

How 'bout thirty-five Acres for $2,000,000 (the highest listing on the website I looked at). :P I'll probably aim for one or two acres, depending on the cost. Thanks for the advise! How is your instrument business doing?
WOW thats alot in wny it is so much cheaper than that ; P
