Review: I believe I played my first "real" game here. I guess I have been playing here since I started playing pb.
Oh man, where do I start?

Good: An unending list. The owners, Nathan, in particular, are awesome. They want everyone to have an awesome time, and making money is secondary. Nathan once offered to take my gun apart with me since I didn't have a clue how to at the time; I never took him up on it, but that kind of commitment to customer service is rare. The CO2 prices are standard, not cheap or expensive ($5?). The entry fee is $5!! I guess the CO2 price makes up a little where the admittance fee lacks. $5 all day playing is ripping THEM off, in my opinion. Pop prices are not bad, 50 cents a can...

I'm not a speedball player, I don't enjoy playing it much at all, so I don't have anything to say about the hyperball field, except that it isn't bad. The castle... I can't decide about that. It's a mix between speedball and scenario. It is fun to play, but I like it when a smaller # of people are playing (i.e. not a big scenario war). Woods/field: the best part of the course. It is my style of play, and I would go every weekend to play that place if I lived closer...

Improvements that would be nice: Restrooms; I'm not sure if there is running water out there or not, so this may not be possible. Note: they do have portapotties.
The castle area: the castle could use some TLC, but my main beef is that the second story walls are too short. The tunnel could have a little more head space as well...
The speedball field: Like I said, I don't play that tra$h, so I have no problems with that part of the field...
The woods/field: More cover, i.e. hay bales, in the field... A bridge across the little swamp area? Maybe some bunkers half-way in the woods...
The bridge going across the river needs some attention, but I'm sure it will be taken care of very soon... The staging area is kinda dirty (it is natural to a certain degree), so perhaps a sweeping more often, and more garbage cans...
I don't expect all of this to be done, as the owners have lives outside of pb, so they are just suggestions.

I would recommend this field to anyone; it is fun to play and the customer satisfaction is high. It also makes pb affordable for the player on a budget. I give this field a 9 out of 10, and I heard that it would be expanding permanently, so perhaps a 10 if that happens.

One final note: Ontario Paintball Challenge is NOT run or owned by Kurt Branham, owner of Aktion Zone. Aktion Zone hosts games there once in a while, but they don't own the place... that is a different story see reviews on them to see what I'm talking about.
