Wildcat Paintball Park
Wacky Warriors East / West
I played paintball for my very first time at Bushwackers 3 years ago. I've taken on paintball as a pretty serious hobby. I've played at different fields in the Metro area with different groups of people. Some open play and some with a group of 26-50 year old men that have gotten together. The group decided to return to Bushwackers for a reserve game. We all have equipment of different levels.
First, we arrived way ahead of the reserve time. We seemed to get pushed back until someone could find some time to do our pre game introduction to the park. At no time did anyone mention the fact that we had to use house paint. I stood there in the introduction with a chromed/anodized gun and 2 cases of paint at my feet. So were lots of our group members. Yes, there seemed to be a price reduction from what it used to be but at $80 a case it needed a reduction. It's better now but the paint rules are goofy. Use your own paint and gun in open play, use house paint in your own gun for reserve groups?
Once we got into the staging area and was assigned a ref, we had to wait another 10 - 15 minutes to find a field that didn't have a group of kids. If it was a situation where the park is busy. Shorten up the game times and get some turn around time going. Nobody likes an elimination game with 10 year olds hiding at each end of the field waiting for the other.
We had two different refs in the course of the day. One little to no energy, the other seemed pretty good and had some interest in keeping watch for paint checks or gun problems.
The person behind the counter came off arrogant and was a jerk. Say what you want about Illinois fields, but the people there care and have some enthusiasm. Something you don't see at the Missouri fields especially this one. The feeling I got there was that nobody cared that I was spending my money and time there along with the rest of my group (all 16 of us) instead of another field.
The fields are ok, but definetly worn. Build another staging area with all your paint profits. There was nowhere to put our stuff to prevent younger players from stepping on guns, hoppers, masks, etc.
This is definetly a beginners field where mom and dad pay just to get rid of the kids for the day. Experienced paintballers beware. They don't want to work for your business, and it is a business no matter how well off the owners are or are not. Hobby or not it's got to be run professionally.
I will not return to this field nor promote this field. Go to Illinois where your business is appreciated and the game is still fun.
