Urban Paintball - Urban's Speedball doesn't compare. But it's a great place for rec ball.
Quest forAdventure - Best place for rec ball. Their Speedball field is great. PAG's I think is top notch though)
Well, me and my wife, went to a drop in night. The turf was great, but definately needed cleaning. Their bunkers could have used a good spray down as well. One thing I noticed, is that they finally have HEAT in there. Back when I was playing there regularily a few years ago, the place was freezing cold in winter.
As for the experience-du-jour, they were letting way too many drop-ins play. There were probably 25 on 25 which is insane for such a small field. The bunker layout was horrible. Basically laid out in such a way to create zero entry to the opposite sides without being picked off. Created a paint-wasting stalemate.
A little over a week ago, we went again, this time with a friend, and my parents. My mom loves paintball, and has come out with us a half dozen times this season. She's a natural. Great player. My dad had his rookie game. After getting tagged several times in the forehead (the rentals didn't have visors), he called it quits for good.
Aside from their rental masks needing to be replaced, we had a great time. They changed up their bunkers and their layout and this time it was much more enjoyable. We could actually move around the field, and play more aggressively without taking on too much risk
[END OF EDIT]
I haven't played there in a few years. But I'll give you my review from when I was playing there.
Great staff. Always friendly, always helpfull. Paint price is great if you and your team are practicing. I think we used to show up on Wednesday nights. Walk-in was never a problem if you weren't a team member. Just had to find a team that would let you on. That's how I got on a team in the first place. Play rec ball pretty much exclusively now.
They changed up the speedball court regularily. A change of scenery is definately an asset when you're playing such a small field (compared to rec ball).
The only main problem I had with them at that point was the same everyone else had. A lot of the bags/bunkers needed washing more often. And their sand/dirt floor was one giant puddle of muddy paint. Though I understand they've gone with turf now. I'm going to have to check it out.
The other problem I had was the constant smell of diesel or car exhaust from the car they'd park there to be paint ridden. On the days they'd move it in or out, you would have a hard time breathing. Doubt they're putting it in now that they've installed the turf though.
