Review: Hours: They're actually really good. If you want late night paintball on Friday and Saturday, go here. (Open untill Midnight) Durring the week they're open untill 5pm.

Field: Interesting set up. There's poles in the middle to keep the middle netting up. The other odd parts of this field are the castles at the east end of the field. To me, they seem kind of out of place. It's your standard air bunkers for mostly everything else. There are a few pipes around poles and such. The bunkers aren't held down that well. As I dove into the snake, I completely pushed one of the bunkers way out of the way.
The terrain isn't bad. It's wood chips. It's good for some sliding, but you might get splinters or some in your shoe. That's as bad as it really could be.
Overall, it's an ok layout. If the middle poles were gone, it could be better.
Staging area is ok. There are some lockers, but I'd just say use your car if you have one. They do have paper towel dispensers, but they never have paper towels.

Refs/Staff: Pretty good. There's a couple that complain (refs), but the rest are really nice and just want to make sure everyone is safe and has a good time. Honestly there's not enough refs. You could easily get away with a wipe or two here.

Prices. Not too bad. Of course the paint is a tad bit much but they have to make a profit somehow. I've seen people bring a 500 or 200 of their own paint and just buy some of Hinkles to use with theirs. The paint is pretty good too.

Players: There's a good range. There's always a few newbs on the field and sometimes some of the big guys will come play, but it's all in good fun.

Rules: Fair. The refs do their best to make sure everyone follows them. They're kind of lazy with the chrono, so I'm sure there's a few people that shoot hot. Their main chrono has been broken each time I've gone.

Proshop: Good selection of stuff. Not a lot though, just enough in case you really need something. They do have rental masks, markers, and apparel.

Building: No bathroom right next to the field. You have to go to the main building for that. Everything is clean and organized though.

Food: There's Hinkles' main building which has food and a Circle K just across the street. There's a soda vending machine in the staging area. You can get pretty much anything.

Overall, the field is good. It's not great, but it's good for the average player, or someone just looking to try paintball for the first time.
