Review: First of all...I was incredibly disappointed in Arkenstone! The ladies behind the counter were complete jerks! They treated me and my buddies with complete disrespect and were very rude to us. One of the ladies sold me a bag with broken paint, and before I even opened it I could see the busted ball, so I asked her to get me a new bag, and she wouldn't! Then when my brother got his air tank refilled, the guy put on a new O ring for him without asking, which is nice...right? NO!!! He chared him $1 for one O ring!!! I had a bag of O rings in my bag that I would have gladly used, but instead they charged him for an O ring without telling him until he came back to pay!!! What kind of service is that?!?!

For the most part the refs were cool, but they knew most of the regulars and are buddies with them, so they put me and my friends (which none of us had played there before) with a whole group of newbies who had never played paintball before!! And the other team was stacked with an entire team of regulars who play there every week!!! They stacked the teams on purpose! I didn't pay that much money to get absolutely dominated every single game! That really pissed me off!!! Plus the regulars are in good with the refs, so the refs were actually cheating and calling people out for them! It wasn't even fun!

Also, the prices were a little on the expensive side. I've played at many fields where I didn't spend 1/2 as much as I spent there!

And they have only one water fountain that has absolutely no pressure, so you can't even drink out of it. This practically forces you to buy their concession drinks...which are of course overpriced!!!

Lastly, the breaks between the games are entirely too long. We played 2 games, then came back up to the shop area for at least 15 minutes. I didn't pay that much to sit around and socialize with people...I paid to play paintball!

Overall, my experience was horrible at Arkenstone! I do not recommend this field to anyone!!! DO NOT GO TO ARKENSTONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I give it a 1/10

Ya I was there that day you were talking about, and just so you know, I was one of the guys on the "stacked team" and out of me and my buddies, about 5 of us, i was the only one who had played there before, and that was over a year ago, and we also knew none of the refs. Same went for about 5 other guys I talked to on our team.
