Orlando Paintball-Good Fields, But they are expensive
Review: Als paintball is a good place to paintball. I come here every week and have played here for over 2 months straight. There are 3 fields, an Airball, X-ball and wooden-prop ball.(With wooden crates and oil cans as props) Here are the pros and cons

Pros
Cheap Prices!
$5.00 to play with own equipment, $10.00 to rent
$29.99 for 2000, but that was low quality paint, it works ok (They might not have it anymore)
$39.99 for high quality field paint



Cons
You have to buy field paint (But it is still cheap)
A team of about 10yr old kids with 98 Customs who come every week and cheat (I shot one in the hopper, mask and leg when he was running to bunker me and said it was from the last game and the ref beleived him)

Key-Side#1-South Side of course, Side#2-North side
Field Reviews
Field#1 -Airball
This is a very good field, infact it is my favorite. They sometimes use this one for CTF and Medic. Well to explain this field, one side (Side#1) starts off with 2 big baloons (Half-Moons) on their side. To the right is a pretty long snake, about 15ft long. Both teams can use it to their advantage. In the middle of the field is a row of "bricks" rectangle structures about 4ft high. There are about 5 of them in one row moving to their side. Then to the left of the field is a row of Triangles "Doritos" and there are 2 rows, about 5 of them in each row moving to Side#2. After the Doritos and Bricks end is their side, with 2 Half-Moons on the left and right.
Field Rating-10/10

Field#2-X-ball
My 2nd favorite field, have only played on it once, so I forgot part of it.it is a form of X-ball. So to all noobs that means each side is symetrical. Well in the 50 there is a huge rocket and two bricks on each side. The fields are symetrical, except reversed. On Side#1, there is a Snake on the right side and on Side#2 it is on the left. So keep that in mind when I write the review for the field, so I dont have to do each side. On Side#1, there is one half moon in the middle with a snake to the right and brick to the left. There is another half moon to the left. Now this is where I forgot the field. Once I play there again, I will finish this.
Field rating-9/10

Field#3-Wooden props ball
I like this field, but no one else does so no one plays on it. That means I cant really like it if no one plays it. Well I do alot of 1V1 here. On side#1 to the right is a prop of 3 crates stacked on top of each other, the base is to crates and in the middle is another. Then there is a tree to hide behind about 5 feet to the right. To the left is two crates in an upside down L form. Then in front of it is an oil can pyramid, like the crate one. 2 side by side an one in the middle. That is the 50. To the right of that is another wood crate pyramid. Then on the right side of the field is the Snake, with wooden crates and oil cans. If you are coming from Side#1, there is an upside down L prop at the end. This is the Start of Side 2. Coming from side 1, there is a pyramid to the left of you and an upside down L all the way to the left. Then at the end-left is another pyramid. All the way at the end-right of Side#2, is a patch of small trees (about 3) It is a good place to hide in with a dark gun, The tree in front splits, into 2 branches, so you can put your barrel there and shoot.
Field Rating-9 (Would be an 8 but no one plays there




Overall a good place to play. Good refs, Has three good courses and cheap prices. Tournaments are coming soon in January and February. I will answer questions if anyone posts a comment.

Rating-9/10

Ok, here it goes. Paint price great, in store service great. refs lazy, horrible, make bad calls, never call games, and rarely think for themselves. now that is not all of them some are great, but for gods sake their getting paid! then u have the cheaters, o yah call me a noob, even though i have been playing for 6yrs. there are wipers and the refs dont even care, the refs will sit on the tape and coach the gun the the messed up thing they call a snake, or tell the guy he is not hit when he has a paint on his hand or foot. the refs dont look hard they just glance, and then go back to their daily concerns about when they get food or their break. also the fields... wow they never change, or get mowed. but i guess u get what u pay for $5 admission $10 for a $12 fill card $50 for a case of paint horrible reffing priceless. it wouldnt be so bad if the bunkers would stay inflated more than 30 minutes, management finds good refs, and cheaters get penalized, but this will all happen when the second layer of hell freezes over. or pigs fly. what ever floats ur boat. i will gladly change my opions and repost if these things change for the better, but well shall see. 2/10 only because of the paint and the indoor service. the rest is mainly the refs, the fields, and the hard core cheaters.
