Review: Okay I have visited this field 5 times, it is pretty new about a year old and it is already going down hill. Now I have went numerous times and what ive seen is the same every time.

Fields: They have a large indoor X ball field that can be combined to form two 5 man fields. Their outdoor contains a woods/fort field, a NPPL Field, and a hyper pipe that is not complete. The indoor complex also contains two bathrooms, a kitchen and a pro shop. Now the fields are horibble The indoor playing field is very dark, and it does not appear to be cleaned often. The bunkers are stained and rarley cleaned and there is literally puddles of paint that are abundant all over the place. The astro turf is uneven and is very slippery. The Woods/Fort field is not good, there are so many twigs and branches it is impossible to mark any other players unless you get into the small fort. the NPPL field is set on a mix of dirt, grass, and rocks, trust me on this one I have a 3*1 inch long gash thats pretty deep because I slid into my bunker. The air bunkers are not filled all the way (its not just one our two its almost every one) and are not properly secured. They tend to tip over and get smaller as someone hammers your bunker with paint. I rarely saw a ref fill a bunker with air or clean it.

Staff: Their desk staff is nice and will help you in the pro shop. The Refs are horrible. They do not enforce safety at all. I know because I ref at another Paintball Park regulary . I dont care if its not a tournemeant you still watch and check players at open play, which the refs dont. I had shot numerouse players with ovious hits and they would play on and it was not just one or two players it was the majority of the players. I do understand that sometimes you dont know if your hit. But When I see someone try to wipe a hit as I run by and bunker them I know The refs arent doing there jobs. When I was in the staging area I witnessed numerous players wihout Barrel Condoms on, and they were shooting not Dry Firing but Live Firing and the refs were standing next to them and said nothing. There were some new players on the field that had rentals but never were chronod and they already played a few rounds so i took them to get chronod. Some of the players were on the field without masks on, while there were players firing standing less than a foot away from them, the ref was standing less than five feet away and said nothing. And a few parents walked into the field while games were going on with no safety equitmeant on, and the refs said nothing come on refs thats common sense, just think parents see unsafe enviorment they may take their buisness elsewhere.

If this place is going to expand like it planes to I would suggest Cleaning your fields at least three or four times a day, Enforce safety rules, and clean up debree and rocks on the outdoor NPPL fields. Because if someone is injured I dont think it will make a good impression of your buisness and your staff.

While I do agree that Headrush can be somewhat dirty at times and that the outdoor fields need to be cleared of rocks, the idea that headrush is going downhill is far from the truth. The opening of the actual paintball park was merely the first step of a 15 million dollar project. Not only is the paintball park going to be expanded, but the proshop is getting 4,000 square feet added and and will soon sell a wide range of gear for many other extreme sports. An indoor skatepark will be added and an indoor motocross track is going in across the street. Headrush has also opened its outdoor bmx track. A 120 room hotel is also in tne works. I sometimes wish the park was cleaner but what paintball park isn't dirty and slimy? I do know that Headrush is cleaned fairly often though because the field was absolutely spotless for the past few tournaments I have been to. As for the staff, I find them all to be very knowledgeable and always willing to help with equipment problems. They also offer advice to help you better your game. I play at Headrush nearly every friday and I have found that the refs are very fair and experienced. I see the occasional player without their masks on before a game or a noob without their barrel cover on but more times than not they are being chased by a ref reminding them to obey the rules. A few times I have seen a player get ejected for several games for being caught with their mask up a number of times on the field. Under no circumstances have I ever seen anyone on the field during a game without safety equipment. Sometimes people forget to put down their masks but I have never seen parents or anyone else on the field during play without goggles altogether. I hope this helps to clear up any misconceptions!!

Yes it has a woodsball field. I have never seen nor played on it, but i heard it was lousy.Doesn't matter to me cuz i play speedball.As for EASfrontman, I try and go to headrush every friday. It is kinda dirty, but hey what do you expect? As for the proshop, they could do better. It gets filled every once in a while but at least they have everything i need for my ION. Except red hybrid grips. Another good thing about headrush is you can just ask Mike if he can order something for you and he'll most likely do it. Not to mention that all the people that work,hang out,or are on SK or AK are mad cool and know how to have fun.
