Review: Well, after at least seven trips to Jungle Games to play on a huge field filled with barriers, bunkers, and other sharp, rusting objects uprooted from the depths of an old Vietnam battlefield, and playing against at least fifty smelly, hairy, sweaty people of all ages, I was getting tired of the same old thing, so we took a trip to PB Review to see if any other fields struck our fancy, and sure enough, here was Orbital. A nice change we all thought, and it was. BUT, not the change we expected...

The site advertised at least seven different fields, little did we know that it was all just one big field divided into seven different sections by moving the boundary tape. But, it was still good, seeing as how they let one of the castle games slide into their so called "busy schedule". It took at least thirty minutes after every game to get another one started, ridiculous! They had to of had at least ten refs there that day! But, time went on and the fun still remained present in our minds as we continued to trudge a seventh of the field...

The real threat to their business is their blatant disrespect for field safety. Kids were literally taking off their goggles before leaving the castle game, WHILE IT WAS STILL GOING!!! And where was the ref? OUTSIDE!!! Thank god for the paintball community being as brotherly as possible or someone could of lost an eye out there; maybe something else too. And out in the parking lot; you wouldn't even be able tell where the paintball field was because there was so much dry-firing going on to know who was really in a game! And barrel bags, WHAT BARREL BAGS? I've seen no barrel bags on that field, have you? Let me answer that for you: NO! Because you just got shot in both your eyes by a six-year-old running through the lot on full-auto supposedly dry-firing...

Don't get me wrong though, it was a great field, and I sure all the little kinks in their system was just because of the Sunday blues. Overall, I would definitely come back, but not without leaving the safety of my car...

I have gone to Orbital recently and the saftey issues have been addressed. The refs and everyone else are really strict about the goggles. The barrel condoms are also inforced they even took my friends gun away until he bought one for it after loseing it in the field. As for the dry firing there is alot of it but except for a few cases its only dry. Lastly the reason why there is no seperation is becuase sometimes they use all the speedball courses as one which is great.
