I have been to this field only a handful of times, one time rented by my place of employment for our use privately. Paranoid is by far the best field/experience I have had. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. They have a small pro shop with airsmithing, gun rentals, markers, accessories/clothes, co2/hpa fills (kalibur fills no lines ;), vending, and nice restrooms. Prices are very fair and it is byop unless you want to buy their paint which is at a good price. What more could you ask in that dept?
The last time I went it was for a walk on game. Everything went really well, air fills were great, the chrono area was cool, there was a guy there (I think staff) who was showing a newb how to adjust his marker and explaining what the field speed limit was and why it is set at 300fps.
Reffing was always fair, there were no arguments. At one point someone had done something that the ref didn't deem fair and people were very cool about making sure the guy knew that whatever it was (overshooting/stabbing not sure I didn't see) wasn't ok in that game. I say in that game because bunkering is allowed as far as I know just keep it to a minimum when newbs or kids are playing.
The atmosphere there has a great vibe with a garden to walk through, several dogs running around (really friendly dogs, who from what I could see enjoyed eating paint/plastic bags lol) and music being pumped from a stereo.
The fields have tall netting and have a seating area between the airball and zipper fields where you can chill and watch as long as you don't mind the occasional hit. Otherwise you can watch from outside the nets, they have several tables with cover for staging and chairs to sit and watch.
On a side note I wanted to point out that numerous times the staff was out in the fields between games with a blower, blowing paint away from the bunkers to keep sliding clean. The bunkers looked clean and squeegeed when I arrived as well.
I love this place and I'll be going back as often as possible!
