Other Fields
in the Area:
Barrie Paintball [more forest and very large but very expensive]
Georgina Paintball [very limited in fields and the ground is flat without slopes or hills like a speedball field]
Review: I've visited WBP more than 10 times and I tell you... It's a good place for beginners up to advanced players.

I would recommended players who would consider playing WBP for the first time to read this specific review of the place cause it's like a heads up basics/rules at the field.

Entry fee:It's recommended to pay entry fee as a gun owner[$10]. [Rentals are fairly expensive on normal days]

Waiver Forms:

Rental equipment: Tippmann 98 customs[very-used due to paint chipping and have seen better days], a helmet, barrel plug and 100 rounds seem to be a good start for first-time players.

Service: It's done quickly in a convenient way [when not too busy], most employees are young part-time workers and very nice to talk to for such[air refills, ammo, etc.

Paintballs: The bigger the quantity the better the price[recommended only for long players] other than that 500 rounds make a good start for first timers. $10 for 100 up to 140 for 2000 [members get em for cheap]

Membership: if you're a player who occasionally or frequently plays at WBP then 200 dollars for a year membership for free entry and one free case of Paintballs would be worth it [and 6 cents a ball regardless of how many bought]

Proshop: Most of the paintball markers and marker [accessories] are fairly expensive loaded with Tippmann/Kingmans as well with a few angel/ion accessories[from E-triggers to bolts to decals to ops gear accessories to oils to etc.] CO2/HPA tanks are pretty expensive to purchase. as for thermal goggles and placing orders I haven't tried that. [they even got a neat catalog book for opsgear mods for Tippmann A-5's] Barrel plugs are so-so but a few bucks expensive [the people there hate losing rental barrel plugs so they sell em]. I would recommend that if you want to buy something there try haggling or negotiating [heck the spare money saved could be used on more ammo for more play-time and for example I went to buy Ops gear G36 equipment for my Tippmann A-5 for 410 dollars but haggled it down to 345 dollars.]

Air tank refills: It's nice that it's for free [HPA/CO2] than in some places where you have to pay 5 bucks per fill.

Bathroom: Small with one urinal and one toilet [mens side since i'm a guy] with a sink not dirty and is rarely smelly. Think of it as a average bathroom. They could probably get more customers if they had a shower.

Waiting field: On the summer times it's best recommended to find a bench where the sun ain't beaming down on you and they have lockers which are 5 dollars for a lock and they return the 5 dollars after returning the lock. when waiting to play it's nice to socialize with first-timers to very experienced players. They have a fairly small chrono adjusting zone which is used always by gun owners and a firing range to help give the player a nice practice of hitting randomly placed targets. On some occasions BBQ is available for 2-3 dollars recommended to those who didn't bring their own lunch or is hungry and got some cash to spare.

Fields: The fields played are selected by the refs and are usually randomly picked. The players are then split into two teams with one group wearing orange armbands while the others are labelled as non-armbands. The referee explains the type of game played on the selected field and what to do to win. After the two teams are placed in their starting zones the referee yell out on their walkie-talkees "Alright guys! Game of [whatever field played] starts in 3,2,1 GO!GO!GO!"

Safety: I find the safety in this field is very good due to the strictness of the refs and some vigilant players, some might temporary kick a player [my dad for example] for removing his helmet when coming close to returning to the safe zone [better safe than sorry] although he wanted to catch a breath. They instantly remind you to put on a barrel plug when returning back to the safe zone after the end of a round.

Referees: When they stand in the field there's usually 2-3 refs observing the field for cheaters and to help to push give self-esteem to players to stir things up like for example: "What's going on? I see no one trying to advance push people!!!"

Firing modes: They will kick you from the field for full-auto and three-shot if caught [they find automatic firing is a newbie thing who can't exercise their fingers] until you can set it to semi or auto-response.

Negative Consequences for the poorly behaved: They warn you the first time the second warning they make you lose a round till next game and third they kick you off the field. [they kick you off the field instantly for ppl having non-field rounds no exceptions].

Mercy rule is in effect within 10 feet in distance. [Referees have low tolerances for point-blank shooting without the player warning the opponent to surrender].

Fair play: I find the people who play here have never cheated and very few would ever wipe the paint off. Makes this field have a good name.

Schedules: If they had a [ton] of big games I would visit WBP non-stop for example Operation Halo. [The owner couldn't stop smiling at the flood of 800+ customers.]

My personal recommendation for them to get a nearly perfect rating for a paintball field: A shower room, more proshop items, and more big games.

Conclusion: After some visits to the field for the first year I would not recommended this game to ppl on a tight budget but to people who want to have fun or to people who are curious of playing paintball.

It's two urinals and two toilets in the Men's room. Don't know which room you were in....
