I have only played at the old paintball arena and their new location.
Review: I've been a member of the paintball arena for just over a year now, and because I've only played at this field and at the old location, my review might be a bit biased. However, I was asked to truthfully come onto this site and rate what I really feel about the arena, and so these will be my true opinions.

Compared to the old paintball arena field, which was full of sand, covered in layers of old disgusting paint, and smaller in size, this new location is much larger, cleaner and better for my gun and clothing. Unfortunately, the ground is a little slippery in places where there's definitely not enough gravel to cover the floor, like in the pub area and in places within Sherwood Forest, and because they are now using stones instead of sand, creeping around becomes harder to do when there's only a few people on the field and not enough gunfire to hide the sound of your movement. There is also not enough cover between the streets and no sniper holes in any of the buildings, and although the staff keeps telling me that they'll get around to putting these things in, I don't see this happening anytime soon.

I love the new pro shop at the new location since it's so much bigger than the last place and stocked up with so much more stuff. The new pro shop manager used to work at the old arena, and although I don't like his reffing style because he's a little too aggressive and mean, this guy is awesome behind the counter! He knows so much about guns and has helped me fix my weapon numerous times. You are now able to order anything from the pro shop by looking in a catelogue and asking for what you want. The manager also sticks by the arena's slogan that they service what they sell, and will definitely help you out if you need assistance!

As for the other staff members, they have a ton of new people working there who are all extremely nice! I don't know why so many people have written bad reviews about the staff here, because I have never really had a bad experience with any of them. There are only a few primary male refs now, and every one of them is awesome. Each guy plays his own set of games and makes them really enjoyable! I remember two of these refs from the old place, and they both seem to have gotten better at the new location. There are so many scenerios at this new location compared to the old place, and most of them are fun and challenging at the same time. Unfortunately, the only beef I have about the staff is that they are awesome when there are not many people in to play, but when things get hectic and lots of people come in, they all go crazy at each other. The new female manager they have here seems to get really frustrated at the other employees and I don't really like her that much because she seems a bit rude, and the refs seem to get more angry and yell more at the players when there are so many people in, especially on Saturdays. I understand that things might be hectic, but the staff doesn't seem to work well together at these times and really needs to start doing so if they want to stop these bad reviews!

So I guess overall I'd give this new field an 8 out of 10, simply because I love to play here and I love the staff, but they need to put in more gravel and more cover to make the action more exciting, and they need to be nicer during the busy hours. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
