Review: It is a pretty small facility in its present state. There appears to be additional room for growth to the east.

At the time of my last visit, there was one "woods" field, 2 speedball fields, and another that I can not quite classify.

For the size of the facility, the ref'ing is surprisingly good. They seem to be in control and care how things are going. Games are sometimes slow to start, in part due to the refs trying to get a concensus on the type of game the players would like next (ctf, elimination, etc). The speedball fields are pretty much case of whomever is ready and willing, go ahead.

I have not noticed any blatant cheating.

My greatest complaint is with CO2 fills. While all-day air is included in the cost of admission, CO2 fills are done without the aid of a scale. Therefore, you may get a good fill, partial fill, or over fill. At my last visit, they over filled my 12oz tank, which blew the burst disc after about 10 minutes (never seen that happen in 10 years of paintball). I took it back, expained what happened, and the operator replaced the disc and again over filled it. Ten minutes later that burst disc popped, too. For the life of me, I do not understand why they do by hand instead of using a scale, which might cost $40 if you bought a nice one.

Bottom line: If you live between Simi Valley and west Ventura County, it is the best at the time of this writing. Anyway, it is much better than Urban Quest.

Edit 06Jul2004:

I went to Paintball USA: Simi a couple of weeks ago, hence the update. They have a new admin building and they are now using a scale for CO2 fills.

Yeah, I just went there about 2 weeks ago and noticed that they are using a scale now.

Overall, the new admin building and fields make it quite a bit better than it was just two months ago.
