Review: Orbital paintball field is a pretty decent field. I'll start out with what I liked about the field:

Pros:

1. The players seem to be pretty cool there. There is a wide variety from young to older and the people seem to be very nice.
2. The refs get games going in a decent amount of time so you don't sit and wait all day to play 3 games.
3. The air line seems to go fairly quickly.
4. Seems like a good amount of people show up, there were around 20 people to a team when I was there.
5. The Airball field seemed pretty well set up though we never actually got the chance to play on it as there were teams practicing.
6. The castle field was great. I think they need to setup a few more bunkers on the woods side of it, but other than that, it's really pretty well setup.

Cons:

1. The woods field isn't set up very well. There really is a large lack of places to hide. The bunkers just aren't really there and the trees are too small to really make for effective hiding especially with such large teams.
2. The speedball fields were a little bit small for the amount of people per team and they seemed to use the spool field and the hyper ball field together in order to alleviate the population problems though I'm not sure if it helped much, but honestly this could be in pros or cons because it was still a fun time, though I do think they need to setup the bunkers a little bit more evenly as the spool side has much more options and their ability to move up is far superior due to the amount of places to hide.
3. The sand on these fields is pretty outta control, you really have to be careful where you put your gun if you do for some reason have to lay it down during a game.
4. They only had 2 refs working at the time and most of the time they were standing near each other which really didn't seem to help much, they seemed to leave it more to the players to enforce the rules though when they did see someone get hit they called them out right away which was good.
5. If you called for a paintcheck they really didn't do anything but stand there so that kinda sucked.
6. I'm not sure if this is a standard down here or not, but there were no tables or chairs or anything, you pretty much set up out of your vehicle or whatever items you may have brought with you. While I don't really expect chairs, I do at least expect to have some tables, though to serve the amount of people they get I suppose they would need a lot of tables.

All in all I would definitely go back to play though I can't say it's my favorite field I've ever played though I'm mostly used to the fields up in New England and the woods fields up there can't really be compared to the ones here....the woods just aren't that great in Florida I guess. I do plan on visiting more fields in the area.
