Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Adventure Zone- Coldwater, MI
Directions
to the Field:
From I-69 South, take the 20 Exit (East), turn left on West Street, which is just before the circle. The building is on the left, and it is white. Their fields are off site, but they will tell you how to get to them.
Review: Safety- Pretty good, they were reasonably strict and we had a few people who didnt know much about the guns safety and barrel sleeves etc. They were fairly careful with everything.

Fields- Woodsball was pretty good. Lots of bunkers, 2 bases with the flags, a little small but keeps it from being too slow. Some really nice bunkers, some smaller, lots of trees of varying size, and quite a bit of bush/shrub cover. Very hilly, so make sure you wear good tight fitting shoes.
Speedball- not really a speedball course, more of a hyperball. Has a mix of air bunkers, wood box cover, cement barricades and corrugated pvc. I didnt play much on this field , as it is in full sun and it was 95* today. The field seems kinda small, and I liked Coldwater better. Adventure Zone only has the one field, but it is all air bunks, and provides a lot of cover, but is a little more expensive since you have to use field paint.

Hours- I had bad experience with their hours, but that was b/c I didnt have a schedule. Closed monday, open play on sunday 12~4. Proshop in downtown Angola is open Tues-Fri 11-6 and 10-3 on Saturday, Sunday before matches, 10-12 at the shop.

Prices- Very good, 10 dollars admission including all day air. You can byop, but their paint is fairly well priced $10/500 or anywhere from $40-55/2000. They had a cooler with pop, water, gatorade etc, which were all very well priced.

Rules- Pretty standard, surrenders if close, no shooting within aobut ~7 ft.

Services- Some of the usual players were cocky and annoying, but everyone affiliated with the field was nice, Cathy especially. Tony, her husband, fixes guns too, flat fee of 10 bucks plus parts. We had him fix my friends gun and did a pretty good job.

Proshop- Quite good. Tanks, hoppers, harnesses, pretty much anything, including markers and probably custom orders if you need. Just ask them for specifics.

Staff- Good, they know what they are talking about, and have been in business for 10 years now.

Refs- we had too many refs, ~10-12 players and like 8 refs. That was probably b/c we didnt have many people compared to what they usually get though. They werent afraid to do paintchecks, and did pretty well to stay out of the way. Good at letting people know you're out so you dont get spammed on.

Players- some were very cool, some of the better players with autocockers were just plain things Im not supposed to put on this site. That pretty much says it.

Facilities- Port-a-potty, not a bad one, but a pavilion or something wouldnt hurt. Overall, kinda hot, but we went on a scorching day. You'll get by.

Food- None offered as far as I know.
