Review: I really do not know where to start about this review of Paradise. I hate to even call it that because it was about the worst experience I have ever had of the game. I play about every weekend at silver spur splat and I decided that I would change up the scenery today and I have to say that I will probably never go back to this field.

Safety- Overall I think the safety was pretty good. I never saw anyone out there that was governing it. But most of the people that I ran across out there had their plugs and barrel covers on when needed and same with goggles.

Fields- The alamo field was decent. Could have stood a few changes but pretty decent. Barrel field was set up nice. Air ball field was awful. That really doesnt describe it at all. If you consider lanes to be field wide then it would be nice for you to play at. A few of the blowups werent anchored down and half of them were deflated.

Hours- They could stand a couple of extra hours in the morning and afternoon both. 9-4 isnt really a whole lot. I think if youre going to run the field and want people to be there then expand the hours. Even if you open at 8 and closed at 6. Between 9-4 its so hot. Most people like playing more when its not in the hottest part of the day. If you wait to play at like 2 you dont get youre moneys worth on field fee and its still smoking hot out.

Prices- All day air price isnt bad. The paint was about average price...could stand to get better paint though(ex. Evil, Marballizer, etc.). Did notice the price on the Ion body kits being $27. Thats $12 cheaper than any other place Ive seen those same ones at. Field fee is godawful at $10. I would suggest doing something like Silver Spur. Pops at SSS does a lot to cut back on that. If you buy a case of paint Ive always gotten free field and all day air. At paradise you buy mid grade paint and get 5 bucks knocked off of your field fee. Big deal.

Staff- The dark headed guy with the mustache was probably about the rudest person Ive noticed at a place of business. The whole time he was yelling and being smart to his daughter I guess is who it was. Just overall the service was piss poor. Terrible wait just to get registered because they didnt know their stuff behind the counter. Being the only person there in line registering and it taking like 15 mins was kinda ridiculous. I will give it to Tiffany, she knew her stuff better than anyone behind that counter and was getting ridiculed by her father the whole time because he thought she was doing things wrong and wasnt. They know absolutely nothing about paintball, markers, equipment or supplies. If you have gun problems you might as well buy one of their ions or just go home. I dont understand how you can run a field and not know anything from low maintenance on a gun to totally stripping them down and trouble shoot problems and be able to fix those problems.

Refs- Wont even comment on them. They stayed at the 50 on the netting the whole entire time. Never paint checked anyone. Overall they might as well not even be there.

Players- Not really my type of people I guess you could say. Being right around newburgh (higher class town) most of the players there were young kids to young adults that had at least $1,000 to $2,000 set ups that you know couldnt pay for themselves. Not saying they're not good people but just seemed a little cocky or arrogant...and that goes as far as saying that was about everyone that I ran into out there. Also played against a few of their field sponsored players the "pimps". I dont even know what to say about it. When the refs asked if both sides were ready, then started his count they were already on the move. Didnt wait for the full count. between the ref saying 3.....2, they were alreay gone. Several times their hoppers or guns would be sticking out being splattered and would go back behind the bunker and then magicly come back out without bright orange paint on them. I do not like playing against people that cheat like that. They cheat and then have the nerve to come into the pro shop and brag like they are the most skilled people that have walked out on the field. If you cant play clean at as high of a level as they think they are, they have no reason to be out on the field. They are probably about the cockiest bunch of kids that I have ever seen but they lack on the skill level. I have played only a fraction of the time that they have and know that I can out gun any of those guys 1 on 1. Anyways, on with the rest of the review....

Facilities- Will say that the place looked nice. The netting system was probably top notch but I dont think that it makes up for anything at all that contributed to this experience.

Food- Didnt really price anything. A 16oz mountain dew was $1.25....not awful but not real great. Other than that, food wise I didnt pay any attention to it.

Overall- You can try the place out for yourself, but as far as myself I wont ever be back. If youre looking for a place to play at around this area I would suggest silver spur up in princeton IN. Very nice place to play, everyone is real down to earth and not stuck up. Plus, the people behind the counter there know a ton about all different kinds of guns. If you ever have a problem there you can pretty much guarantee you wont have to set out or go home. Pops and Shawn are awesome at working on markers and are CERTIFIED on many different types.

Just my two cents!

No sir. I have a fully modded ion.... how do you not know your guns well enough to say that your buddy lit someone up in the chest that either had an indian creek bko, a tippmann a5, or a spyder electra....even from a far distance those guns dont even resemble each other?

And just for your FYI....no it isnt about how i can out gun people. If you actually read the review, I gave the field a well structured review with positive criticism. Trying to help you guys make some improvements on your field. I didnt come out on this site and totally bash the field. Just because you didnt like what you hear doesnt mean you have to start disputing reviews. Thanks for showing everyone a brief view on a few of the things I was talking about in my review about some of the people that play at paradise.

Dysfunctional is right, you'll never catch me at Paradise, SSS is the best around.

Dude I totally agree with u about how the pimps cheat. I went there once and the only reason they won is because they cheated. Personally I thought they kinda sucked.

Normally I dont post comments on here, but to be honest...you all need to stop worrying about the fields home team and more on the field in general. I know that they do make an impact on how the field looks to outsiders, but a good group of players worry more about the way a field functions than about the people that play there. Take this from a person who has played at almost evey field in Indiana. That includes playing CTS and just recreation play. This field is a good place to play. End of Story
