I have played extensively all over Ontario and played my first game in 1987 here in Regina.
Well I have to say this is a mixed review...
POINT ONE: it is a good field or should I say fields, lots of variety and the Refs are friendly and knowledgeable.
POINT TWO: the pro shop is barren and what they do have is grossly overpriced.
POINT THREE: they have their registration set up in such a way as to expedite you on to the field, almost no waiting around.
POINT THREE: not a single person asked me if I was going to or had chronographed. I chronoe'd after my third game and found I was shooting at 230fps
POINT FOUR: the wait at the air refill station was almost non-existent all refills were handled fast and efficiently.
POINT FIVE: I couldn't find any proof of insurance. I looked around at the pro shop and checked APL and CPL online but they are not listed as insured, look http://www.paintball.net/cplfieldslisting.asp?Province=SK
POINT SIX: EXPENSIVE PAINT!!! $140 per case. I have been used to paying 90 to 120 per case in Ontario, 140 just seems like a little too much.
POINT SEVEN: ALCOHOL... YUP a group of guys had cases and cases of beer and an assortment of hard liquor as well, this might explain the apparent lack of insurance.
POINT EIGHT: their rentals suck. 7 of the 9 guys in our group used the rentals and had nothing but problems, breaks, jams, leaks you name it.
POINT NINE: the bathroom was a pig sty, and come to think of it so was pretty much the rest of the "pro shop" I guess this is what passes for professional here in Saskatchewan but compared to places like Wasaga Beach in Ontario this place is an absolute mess.
POINT TEN: they have a free barbecue, hot dogs, ya it sounds good but if you miss the two or three packs of hot dogs they cook up cause you were playing a game too bad for you, all the money in the world couldn't but you a hot dog. I went hungry.
POINT ELEVEN: the day I played they were short a few dozen barrel plugs so there were a bunch of noobs running around in the staging area with fully loaded and ready to fire markers without and barrel plug or bag. NOPE, NOTHIN!!!! YIKES!
POINT TWELVE: I was playing a game on the Vietnam field when I tripped over an old rusted, God knows what, that was embedded into the ground. Ripped a hole in my leather boots but could have done much worse. I would have shown a Ref the danger but there wasn't one attending our game, he just sent us off to the field to play by ourselves.
Overall I can't recommend paradise paintball and basically I could overlook a lot of their short comings but the barrel plug thing and the ALCOHOL at the field I certainly cannot overlook, these type of things DO NOT BELONG AT A PAINTBALL FIELD WHERE THERE ARE CHILDREN PRESENT or adults for that matter, but both at the same time. YIKES!!!! Just what I want, a drunk carrying a fully loaded rental marker in the staging area without a barrel plug. Hmmmmm We will be trying somewhere else next time we play!!!!

Ok well 1st of all... this was in 1987.. i wasn't even born... i have lived in Regina most of my life and have been here on several locations... this review should be takin off because it is waaaaaaay out of date. it is alot better now.
It says I played my first game in Regina in 87
Paintball paradise isn't that old! Christ....
I was at Paintball Paradise just over 3 months ago when all of this happened.
And no it's not "alot better now "<sic>
ok well i dont know when u went but they always have barrel plugs and never have alcohol on the premises... i remember trying to sneek sum in and the caught me!... unless it was the end of the day or sumthin and there was nobody there except the employees then i think that would be ok but not while there are people around.. and yes it is alot better now although the rentals could be atleast a little bit better... all rentals suk so might as well get cheap ones
Listen Robert, perhaps you can't read so I'll get out the crayons for you...
I went to Paradise paintball in AUGUST OF 2004
They had run out of barrel plugs and several people were running around the staging area without a barrel plug in their markers and most of the were NOOBs with rentals, that IS A FACT.
ALSO on the day I was at paintball paradise IN AUGUST OF 2004, there were a group of guys in the staging area with alcohol, lots of alcohol. Also a FACT.
We arrived at around 12 or so and there were LOTS of people around, like 100+ and they weren't staff. Everything I said in my review is the absolute truth and 100% fact.
Dude, i agree with kangaroodent, les is retarded, because we was playin indoors, wen it was snowy outside, and me and my friend were out, so we stayed in and just randomly dryfired to make the game sound like more was goin on while my bro and my friends bro played. we'ed been in there fer like an hour withh 200 paint, and he comes in without a mask and sais times up, so we say ok, and he sais dryfiring is hard on the marker, so we get back, and we give him out markers, and the first thing he he does is dry fire each one like, six times! i dunno, but how hypocritic can u get?!
One other thing tho, altho i agree with ur review entirely, the reason he sells his r6's fer $165 instead of there value of $100, is because he gives them a lifetime warranty, which, in my book, is rele cheap fer a warranty that long!
