Review: I will have to agree, the field did have some bad days and big problems last month. but they finally got things rolling again.

I was talking to one of the older guys there, Erik and hes been working there awhile and he told me that thins are never as disorganized as they were for those 2 or 3 weeks. Some of it due to two new staff members that were hired during that time period.

They redid the some of the fields, especially one called gauntlet, the base was entirely redone and the attacking side was done up very well, there is not "crappy side" to be on that you get on some other attack and defend games ive played at other fields. it is now ALOT of fun.

I am not sure what problems you see on the way there safety at the field. During my bothers birthday party that we had there, the ref gave a through speech on safety and did not leave anything out. He made sure that every fired and tested there weapons near the chrono behind a blue trailer in a designated area. And all of the rentals that were handed out had barrel plugs and made sure they were used in staging area and were required to pay 3 dollars to replace it if it was lost. The ref was great and in fact i think my dad gave him a $25 tip because ever thing ran so smoothly.

All i can say is that everyone has their good days and their bad days. what you guys probably witnessed was one of their bad days, especially if it was a busy one, all they need is to have one simple problem hold them back and everything can get messed up.
and one reason the serive may be slow compared to other fields is because Paintball Adventures ALWAYS has more people playing than other fields, other fields service is better because they don't have as many people there. Plus, you cannot complain about the prices there either, 10 dollars field fee (as usual) $15 for a 50 round bag of blaze, and $52 for a case of blaze, (also have $14 bags, adn $48 cases.) plus all day Co2 is only $7! and All day Compressed air is only $5. You get a rental for $26 but technically are only paying $9, considering that it includes you $10 field fee, and $7 all day c02 for the guns rental tank that comes with it. so if u break it down

$26 (total)
_____
-$10 (field fee)
_____
-$7 (A/D C02)
_____
=$9


I would definitely recommend this field. If you have had a bad experience with this field i would say come back and give them a second chance, I overheard some of the employees talking about some nice plans they are about to start with the fields and a sweet upcoming scenario with lots of cool scenario props. I have played at Wild Bills and was impressed at first, mostly because it was just so different, but I soon found out that the total of 3 fields just wasn't enough to satisfy my paint balling appetite. I became bored with the field, and it has begun loosing business rapidly, unlike paintball adventures, even though there are some ppl like these two guys that have problems, there has always been people there, and they way i see it. as long as paintball still exists in Jacksonville, they will always have business there.

im out
happy shooting
