This is a very nice and cheap field to play upon. The place was born on August 7th, 2004 and is still working some aspects of their business. Visual Appeal: The field is in it's early stages and visual appeal is (in my opinion) not that great. Their office is not in service yet so you have to pay for everything outside from a fold-up table. The prep area is also quite dirty with torn up chair so it's hard to keep your marker/paintballs clean. My friends and I happened to go their a day after a hard rain so there was mud and puddles everywhere. However, I spoke with the owners and they are working on getting their office up really soon. I would expect within 5-6 months, the place's visual appeal will be elevated quite a few notches. Staff: Wild Planet Paintball is family owned with a few outside-the-family employees. These folks are extremely nice and are really motivated to make you happy. As far as I can tell, they are in the business for the game more than the money. They are highly organized and they make sure you have a quality experience. Fields: When we went there, three fields were up and running with a fourth field in the works. Two of the fields are air bunker fields, one is a plywood-bunker field, and the in-construction field being a barrel-field. The Diablo Field (Air Bunker) is a very nice field meant mainly for speedball. The bunkers are very large and there is plenty of cover. The second air bunker field is much tougher. The bunkers are much smaller and thus making you hit the dirt. The plywood field is my favorite. It is nearly four times larger than the air bunker fields and made for almost any type of game. Plenty of cover and lots of room to run around. Remember, we are near Casa Grande so no trees folks, just man-made structures and a few bushes. Prices: Extremely affordable prices compared to some other places in AZ. It costs $10 to get into the field for (if you go from open to close) 9-10 hours of play. $10 for a marker/mask/air tank rental and $10 for unlimited air refills. A downside is that you have to purchase their paint. They have 5 different kinds of paints available in cases of 2000. The basic paint costs $35 and is NOT WORTH IT! Apparently they are uneven balls of different sizes. They told me it was meant for kids just wanting to mess around. The next step up is the $45 Zap Paintball. For $55, $65, and $75 you can purchase various types of Worr Paintballs. This stuff gets expensive quick. Their rental markers don't seem too bad either. They gave my friend a Bruiser (sp?) I believe. Gameplay We played three types of games: Speedball, Capture the Flag, and Double Elimination. It was extremely fun because everyone was a good sport and the refs know what they are doing. It also happened to be a nice, overcast day so we weren't playing in the normal 110 degree weather. Max speed is 285 fps (and this is STRICTLY enforced).
All in all I recommend playing at this field. The staff is set on making the game fun and the price-quality ratio definitely favors quality.
