This field is the only one worth going to that far north.
Directions to the Field:
^ They're better than I am.
I had an overall excellent experience at this field. Lets start with the Rates, shall we?
For 4 hours, owners don't get charged too much. It costs 10$ for entry ( I believe) and 10$ for 100 paintballs. With the entry, you get free unlimited CO2/Air fill ups! Whoo!.
If you are renting, I believe it costs 25$ dollars, which is a STEAL for what they give you. With 25$ you get: Tippman model 98, Proto Switch EL mask, 50 free paintballs, and an air tank! (Don't know what brand, all the stickers are removed).
The staff here were simply amazing. Expect friendly staff and unbeatable service. Tech support know exactly what they are doing, they fixed my buddies BT in a matter of minutes, for free. The refs are well marked (orange ref jerseys) and they ACTUALLY REF! In other fields (Sgt Splatters) the ref does nothing, and actually sometimes leaves in the middle of the game. These refs were fair, and weren't afraid to get into the action to make a paint check.
With 70 acres and 14 maps to play on, you bet your A** that you'll have a good time. Owners and renters are organized into groups (i.e Group X) and sent to a field via PA system, escorted by refs. I personally played 5 different maps. Every single one of them was clean, thoughtfully layed out, and fun! Mansion Impossible was a small attack and defend map, and layed out kind of like a speedball field, while Ridge Runner was a large, slower paced, woodsball field. Some maps are so far away, they take you out on a tractor!
The Pro shop here is pretty small, but it boasts a surprising amount of parts to choose from. They have many markers, barrels, and air tanks to choose from, as well as smaller parts, like bolts and X chambers. I actually never bought anything, but from what I saw, the prices were very reasonable.
The bathrooms here were practically spotless (think restaurant). The staging area was outdoors, with lockers, TONS of picnic tables, and shade structures. It was big enough to comfortably fit AT LEAST 150 people.
The players who went to this field were all EXTREMELY cool people. You actually work as a team on these fields. When I was playing, almost always a stranger would come up to the bunker I was behind and we'd communicate enemy positions. There's a good mix of owners and renters, so its friendly to Pros and New people alike.
Because these fields are huge, the velocity is 280 fps. To some that may seem high, but I thought it was just right. If you're scared, don't worry, you can get a free camo pullover!
Whew! That took a while! What else can I say? This field was good, fun, and safe. I would recommend it to anyone, especially big groups (think birthday). I give this field a solid 10/10. Wasaga paintball, you rock!
