I've played Xdrenaline, which is comparable but smaller.
Review: The strengths of this park are that the fields are good sized and the restrooms and tables are adequate. The chief weaknesses of the park are that most fields are reached by a tractor pulling a trailer which makes the wait between games longer, and some refs are very disrespectful of players.
The owner has done a good job developing the property for playing paintball, but not as good a job in managing the people side of the operation. While most of the refs are reasonably nice, they are all young. Many of the refs would rather be goofing off than taking care of business. The goofing off can also add to the long waits between games.
Because private parties are often present, and seem to get priority treatment, regular folks again wait longer and may not get to play the field they would like. If you push the refs to get the game going, or for a paint check during a game, some refs will stack the next game against you so you get shot up. Many refs will refuse to respond to a paint check call at all unless you happen to be a friend of theirs, in which case a virtual strip search will be done looking for paint.
By way of petty torments, one ref has resorted to refusing to let a father and son who wanted to play together play on the same team. The management so far as I have seen tends to let the refs do pretty much as they please. Its sort of like the novel "Lord of the Flies" where the fifteen year olds are ruling this little island, and if you don't stay on their good side you will be made to suffer.
If you draw one of the better refs like Alex, Corey, Sam or Tinan, you'll probably have some good games. If you are less lucky, you may find yourself wondering why you spent thirty bucks to sit there at a dusty, paint smeared table all day.
