This field may not exactly be one of the 100% top super best fields in the country, but it has potential. Definitely more suited to WOODSBALL PLAYERS.
You'll always hear the most important factor is location, and dam did they get a great spot. Natural cover (boulders, hills, etc.) is EXCELLENT. For a time you will never forget, get together 10-on-10 teams and play the swamp field. The fields have easy to remember names (swamp, castle, etc.) so you won't get confused about which is which. Referencing Skirmish, when you hear the name 'The Gauntlet' what do you expect? Anything! No, these guys KEEP IT SIMPLE and that is good
As for pricing, it is moderate. I believe it is $25 ( $5 less than skirmish, $5 more than Splatter) to get in, and $100 for a full case of paint. The food is a bit on the expensive side, but it tastes good. Basically you GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Reservations are not nescessary, and walk-on players are treated with equal care and respect.
The buildings are good as well. Most resemble WWII pillboxes, or castle towers and co-exist nicely with the environment. As for the CASTLE itself, dont be too hopeful. This may be their only weakness. It is small (though the addition did help alot) and dismally hard to defend.
In CONCLUSION, it is a great field for SMALLER TEAMS. Most of the field are relatively small so more than 20 people is not recomended. Overall a great field to fine-tune you game on, BUT TAKE CAUTION! The refs are serious about what they do! Any violation of the rules will not be tolerated, especially MASK REMOVAL! If you frequently get into trouble with the refs at another field then don't other coming here! Thats all.
I would also like to add that I have been reading that many people find the price of paint to be high. With Skirmish as my homefield I can safely say that their by-the-case pricing is the same. Jack Frost is only a wee bit less.
NOTE: All fields make their money through their paintball sales. Your whole $100 dollars doesn't just cover the paint. There is also insurance, referee salary, water, electricity, land tax, and numerous other things that are factored into the paint rather than the entry fee. Yes, owners could drastically lower their paint prices, but the entry fee would skyrocket as a result.
