Directions
to the Field:
Wow, get off the I-10 on Houghton road, um, gee, if your heading in town, you'll make a right onto houghton, and if your going out of town, you'll make a left. Its about amile from the free way, on the right side, its a little road that goes off to the right.

Just go to their site.....
Review: Ok, So I just played there with my church, (me and about 20 other people), and there were already about 30 or 40 people there, so it was a lot of people. The field was really nice, lots of bunkers, tons of stuff to hide behind. Basically they have gathered up anything that you can hide behind, and put it on the field, this includes old tires, spools, oil drums, ply wood, and spools. And for some reason about a dozen of those little drums that you see on farms that have milk in them, the little two foot high things made out of steel. They dont really do much though, lol.

Lets see, the entire place is on ten acres, I believe the most they have ever used was seven acres. The other three comprise a parking lot the shop and a little "staging area" Just a couple tables under a aluminum cover.

They had about maybe five acres open that day, so it was pretty big. They have a couple beat up chop top cars to run you onto the field, unless you feel like a little warm up walk of about a quarter mile to the field.

The refs were ok, not over bearing, not-not paying attention.

Thye usually had about half hour games. They either had a capture the flag game, you know, go get the flag at the middle of the field and dont get shot doing it. and a two flag game, where you had to raise a flag at both ends of the field to win. The single flag game was usually more fun because all the fighting was concentrated into one area around the flag, and flanking was just useless.

The "flag" was a ratty old bath towel looking thing that had bright tape tied around it at several places.


The shop had the necassary stuff, paint, CO2, and very very basic spare parts, like o-rings and stuff. They sold a couple used guns, but that was it. If your line broke, they weren't gunna have it. They have an awesome sign at the shop though, "NO SNIVELING!" HA! TAKE THAT YOU LIBERALS!!! lol. The guy who ran the shop was a fair kinda guy.

THEY DONT ALLOW OFF FIELD PAINT!!!! AGH!!!!!!!!! That is really the only draw back that I can see, besides a 20 OZ Co2 fill costing you five bucks. They sell Kickin' Paintballs there, the sell the rec, metalix, and premium. I would buy the Metalix, which run 60 bucks a case (way over priced, should be more like 45 a case) its actually pretty good paint, but beware, the bright purple fill will stain your clothes if you don't wash them within 24 hours.

They rent Tippmann Pro Carbines with HPA's, but they're only what looks like 42 CI 1500 PSI tanks, so your running low after about 180 shots, which really really sucks. But thankfully they have free air all day for their rentals. Truthfully I hate their rentals, maintly because they can chop, and then the already sucky accuracy gets worse.

$25 gets you a pro carbine with 200 paintballs
$35 gets you a pro carbine with 500 paintballs
and a $10 upgrade to any of those gets you an A-5 with HPA, not a half way bad gun.

If you Plan on renting, just get the A-5, or bring your own gun. All the rental masks they have are really really scratched up inside, which blows.

They rent Camo and stuff there wich is cool.


Safety is a priority there, if you haven't played there before (or even if you have) you get a little ten minute speach about safety "never take off you goggles" "don't shoot some one point blank" "if you see a snake, either run away screaming like a girl, or shoot it in the head a dozen times" stuff like that.

Their hours are fairly ok, When school is in, they are only open on the weekends, from nine, till usually about 4:30, when ever most of the people leave or the refs get hungry and cranky enough. But during summer and spring break and big holidays (christmas mainly) they open during the week.

Rules are pretty straight forward, no full auto, and no shooting some one from paint blank, no hitting, cussing (that rule doesn't work very well) no fighting or anything. Basically they wan't you to have a fun enjoyable experience, not some day down in the dust, fighting with other players (some of which deserve to die)

My worst story for the players there is this one kid on my team got in a bunker, (I was out) and a vet from the other team saw him, and shot him about ten times, and yelled " YOUR HIT!!" so he looks, and looks, for about half a minutes, and CANNOT find a break on him. so he yells back "I'm not hit!" (I checked him, he wasn't hit) so the other kid just empties litterally about 80 paintballs on this poor guy (the first time he's played paintball) and says "YOUR HIT NOW!!" which ofcourse he was.
And when your out, you either go to the "main bunker" and sit there, or go to the nearest edge, where ofcourse, you still get hit with paintballs, not fun.

they don't have any food there, they have a poweraid maching and a soda machine, a water fountain and thats it.

They have the main field and what looks like a small scenario field. The latter of which I could not see inside.

All in all, its a pretty fun place to play, prices for paint are a little high, but its good paint.

Its the only field close to vail, so its not like there is another choice.

I would go there, the field fee is seven bucks last time I checked, and thats the only real fee you have to pay, besides paint.
