Thy Tempest Friday, July 7th, 2006
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: July 6th, 2006
Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
First field played on, but have seen Excalibur in BC, and Combat Zone in Jonesville.
BC has more fields, but Ad Zone just opened in April, so I still have hope for more to come, they are already talking about more fields.
Directions
to the Field:
Going out of Coldwater on 12, it just right after the curve immediately after the Capri, drive is on the left. Obviously, from Bronson, it is just before the Capri, drive on the right.
Review: Safety- Chrono guns, safety/rules course, etc. Pretty standard, a little overprotective for me, since im used to private woodsball, but liability is liability.

Only one field , so thats kind of a downer. It was the first speedball course I had played on, and I liked it. It was a little hard to balance teams with our players, and with one the employee's playing with his Shocker to make even teams, it made it even more difficult.
The field is a nice size, and has good cover, with bricks, steamrollers, stand up cans, small boxes and a dorito side/snake side.

Hours are kinda weird, as far as I know , they arent open, at least for paintball, in the morning, so it can be quite hot if you dont dress in light clothing.

Prices were more than I was originally told, so that made me mad, but after the day, I realized its not too bad. I had to rent a gun b/c my bottomline connector is bad, so that was most of my expense. Admission is $10, with 2 rental packs at 10 and 20 dollars, paint is $45 a case for Zap Spank which shot surprisingly well.

Rules were fairly standard, lots of things to incorporate safety. Two things that bothered me, no blind shooting/Overhead snap shooting, and they have a 10 foot yield call. I was yielded on a few times, and was asked to call yield a few times, but we were there for 4 and a half hours, and only one of the yield calls was actually relevant, but this may change depending on the ref.

Service was descent, lack of enthusiasm in the beginning, but mostly due to being a new field, they seemed very excited that they had customers, and customers were coming during our session to check prices etc.

No proshop yet, but one of the refs said if they put more fields in a proshop will soon follow, if not at the same time. I would expect this by next season, or the one there after.

Staff- didnt know a thing about paintball, but the refs were very good. They knew there stuff, gave good gameplay tips, as well as affordable up's to our markers and gear.

I only played with friends, which doesnt really say much b/c I absolutely hate one of them. He wiped my paint off at least 2 times, and I hate him, just to make it clear, and not only b/c of this.

Small 1 person bathroom, but fairly well kept, has an arcade and mini golf etc, since it is a family entertainment center. Overall a great place to go for a quick paintball day, or bring a big group to split between the arcade, golf, pb etc.

We didnt eat there, and didnt see any of the food, so I cant provide any advice on this.

Overall- Pretty good, if you are still sketchy about it, wait till next season or until a new review after some of these renovations come through. Once they get a proshop, and maybe lower their non paint prices, they would get an 8.5 from me.
