Review: I am the Captain of my newly formed paintball team MIRAGE. Most of the players are brand new to the sport, but I have been in paintball for a good 10+ years now. I was checking again on local indoor fields because of the rain Michigan has all the time this time of year and I noticed the Livonia Mall was reopened.

I didn't realize it till we got there, but it is under new ownership and they have done a great job at remodeling the field and making it much more player friendly field. As everyone knows the old Futureball field just wasn't good. This new Killer Paintball field rocks.

There are two field there: Barrel Grounds & Speedball.

Barrel Grounds: is an "L" shaped field with a castle structure in the corner. It makes for lots of fun for scenario games and large group play. There are so many barrels and structures to hide behind but they are very well placed so that every structure can be flanked to eliminate campers. Exception: The castle structure you can camp in. Great field for noobs and large groups to have fun.

Speedball: This is a 5v5 Speedball course any more would be extremely crowded. The bunkers are setup nice and it is nice because they will let a single team run against each other to practice during open play. The course could be a little longer but that would take away from the Barrel Grounds field.

Staff: They are amazing, very helpful and knowledgeable. The staff was very friendly to give advice and let you know everything they had to offer. They also very interested in helping all my new teammates understand how to play together better.

Ref: They are young refs but did an outstanding job being in the action to check paint and were always making sure no one was cheating and that everyone had their masks on when we entered and barrel covers on when we left. They took the time to learn our names and to talk with us between games to help us out. They were great.

Field: The keep the play going quickly. We played 25+ games in 3.5 hours. That is unheard of at any field. They created games to get multiple groups playing together as well as tailored games for individual groups to play by themselves as well. They even will let people play a 1v1 games to see who is King. The refs and owners keep the place spotless or as best as can be with paintball. They have two cleaning machines to clean the playing field. Some paint residue helps with sliding but too much like at most indoor fields just gets to be disgusting. They also do not tolerate any cursing which is great because I would not mind bringing any age kids to play there.

Costs: $15 entry, Paint $37 Monster Ball, $49 Blaze, $60 Inferno
Air $1 per 1000psi $10-All Day Air or $12 for 1700psi air card.(Best deal) Because you can split the card among friends and anyone using over 10,000 psi of air themselves is just shooting too much and you have the money to spend.
Wed - BYOP (Yellow or White fill) not bad. Tues - Opening Team Practice nights soon.

Food: They offer a wide assortment of snacks and drinks for a reasonable price, there are also a few restaurants in the mall. There is not much in the mall though except a small ice cream/hot dog place on one corner $1 dogs always great for before a evening of play. The mall itself though is a little scary.

Hoping they offer a team play deal soon, so we could afford to go more often. Also wish they allowed orange fill as well for BYOP, because sometimes hard to find yellow and especially white.

Overall, this is a great field and our team is planning on returning soon to play. With all the Pros and very few Cons just minor improvements this field definitely gets a 10 out of 10. Thanks
