Wow! The first time I went to Arkenstone was with my church. We played Castle first and I was amazed! The castle itself is huge and there are lots of bunkers for the attacking team to use. P.O.W. was the next level played, it is just plain tight. But none compare to speedball. Although its not an airball field...it was my favorite.
About everything else:
Refs: 10/10-They respect you and are always paying attention...they'll even give you a little cover sometimes...
Rentals:7/10-Model 98s and Pro/Carbine's...not bad....free air w/rental...also have two impulses you can rent for more...but thats all
Staging:9/10-Nice staging area...all together with plenty of picnic tables right next to the target range...about half is covered
Prices:6/10-Bag of field paint is $17.50...Case of Evil is about $100
Playing time:8/10-12:30-5:00...play 2 15 minute games at each field with a 5-10 minute break between fields
Fields:10/10-There are 14 fields and all of them are incredible!
Overall I recommend Arkenstone to Newbies and pros(don't worry...they split up groups Newbs/pro)
