Review: By far the best kept woods field on the Spacecoast. Not enough can be said about the Refs. They are consistent, and do the best job I've seen in keeping the safety rules met for everyone's safety. They are trying to replace the cover on the staging area, and it's really needed as we move into summer. The vendor, General Chester, is very reasonably priced and fair. Once our 20oz CO2 tank seemed to only last for one or two games. When we went back and explained this, they said that they had trouble with their tanks earlier, and topped our tank without any additional charge. Very fair! also, the staff does a good job in keeping the teams even in number, experience, and age (not all midgets on one single team).
Okay, the downside. No running water, port-o-lets only (so go before you go, if you know what I mean). Also, being as its a BYOP field, many people buy cheaper paint and/or do not store it correctly, and consequentially the shell doesn't break on impact. One guy shot me twice from 15 ft and they both bounced, but left an extremely nasty halo that will last several weeks. And of course, and its usually the same group, fail to call themselves out. This is what happened to my son a few times, and he got extra hits from the hard, bouncing-ball shooters. Also large welts that Mom is definitely not happy about! Hey, the refs do a great job, but can't watch everyone. You'll get these bad apples at just about any field. JUST KNOW THIS AND HAVE ADEQUATE, THICK OUTERWEAR FOR THE YOUNGER PLAYERS WITH YOU SO THAT THEY DON'T GET SERIOUSLY INJURED!!! I still highly recommend this field, just be informed and come prepared.

Overall, it is a fantastic field for woodsball beginner to intermediate levels, or for open field speedballers. Not really a scenario field except at special game events.

I rated it an 8,
if they had facilities, a shaded area, and field paint requirements it would be an 11++

the bouncing ball is just cheap paint. the more expensive stuff with break easier. im sorr your son got hit but you have to expect that in paiintball.
