Tanks, Paintball Zone, Adventure Village, Black Mountain, Survival Games of Texas
I must say that my initial impression when I drove up with some friends was not real positive. We were are first concerned due to the number of mouthy kids that were present. I realise that I am older than most players on any given saturday (40ish) and can hold my own very well. After we got situated my impression started to improve as Mike, the owner, made sure that we were well recieved by the refs and placed on a team for a good woodball game.
As the day progressed I noted that the players who frequented this place pretty well followed the rules and the refs kept it fair and were involved in the play.
We played woodball pretty much all day and had a total blast. The field was well kept and groomed. We played the white house - the field is a good size, not too small and not too big. We also played on the small tower field. This field was a little small for the number of players but was well ref'd.
For the type of play we were involved in, woodball, it was the best field I had been to in a long time. The hyperball field looked about like anyother good thought out field. It is hard to screw up a hyperball field if you just pay attention to what you are doing and it was obvious the fields owners had. I understand from Mike that they are in the process of putting in an airball field. It was already marked and the size looked to be tourney type. Nicely laid out. Much better than Black Mountain and on par with Tanks.
Safety was an obvious concern and that was a plus as my ten year old was playing. As was my best friend and his ten year old. They were both accepted by the other players and the refs kept a good watch on the game. The other players were well behaved as well.
About the only real complaint at the time was that the Co2 tanks did not seem to get filled and they emptied very fast, one game. My HPA tank was only getting about 2k to 2.5k instead of 3k. After it was brought to Mikes attention, it was explained that the fields shipment had not come in due to the holidays made sense and we did not have a problem with that . It happens.
Overall, it turned out to be a very good day. We really enjoyed the fields and folks were polite and willing to help out. Mike, the owner, was present and he wanted to make sure that we had a good time. When the owner is polite and personable, the fields are good, and the weather holds..... that is a good combo. We will most assuredly come back to this field!
