This is a great field, for newbies and older players alike. Half price days are on tuesday and wednesday. To make this affordable, go with three friends on a half price day (you end up paying something around $30 for a great time) Pay for your rental/entry then split a case of paint. Pizza and burger king are just across the street and vending machines in the player's area.
You can sign up for three different classes:
Update: Feb 03/07
As the website says, you can upgrade your rental marker but this is NO LONGER TRUE. They did used to rent out Angels, but due to people disrespecting the rental gear they obviously had to stop. They got new Tippmann 98s about 2 weeks ago.
Renter - you rent all the gear (oh really?)
Owner - you have your own gun. (Renters and owner can ONLY use paint that has been purchased over their counter)
Open-class - BYOP etc.
Games usually go Renters+Owners (They split renters and renters+owners up if there's lots of people) then open-class.
Classes can "challenge" the class ahead of them, but not below them.
Safety: The safety is great. Refs ALWAYS stress that you have your barrel condom on when you're not playing, and yell at you for a while if you take off your mask on the field.
Field: The field is also great. They clear out the paintballs every few hours, so it's extremely clean. They change up their bunker arrangements every few days and claim to have over 100 different bunkers.
Staff: The staff are really friendly (unless you do something to tick them off that is)
Refs: The refs are quite nice. If you decide to break the rules, there will be negative concequences. They usually call hits, but cna miss a few here and there.
Players: The majority of players there are average. Most of the open-class players are quite good. (You'll see tons of Angels and DM6's)
Play with the owners and renters, and you'll see mostly tippmanns and spyders.
Paint: The paint isn't all that great. Pretty expensive for the grade but it's worth the price to play at the field. One ball didn't break after a 5 or so foot drop onto a concrete floor. After that, I had to hit the ball twice with my fist for it to break.
Air: 3.5-12 oz CO2 = $4
13oz+ = $6
Compressed = $1 per 1000 psi
Proshop: The proshop is PPP (Premium Paintball Products). Uhh a bit expensive, and a bit slow processing your purchase...Paint is within reason.
Bathrooms: Very clean. The only problem is the floors. After playing a game, stepping up to a urinal to do your business isn't the easiest thing...You end up sliding around on the floors.
Overall: I suggest playing here. This is probably the best place around, and can be quite fair if you invest in a membership ($200. 50% off paint, free entry, free compressed fills)

Yo man, ummm, about the owner part. If you are an owner of a gun, and you aren't renting anything there, you are aloud to bring your own paint, but it must explode either red or yellow. I was just talking to a guy who works there on the phone, and that's what he told me
For BYOP, you must pay extra, you can only play with other BYOP players (open-class) and your fill must be WHITE or YELLOW they have recently banned the use of "monster" balls because they solidify when they break.
At Next, they reserve the right to ban you from the field from 3 months if you use any fill other than white or yellow.
All this can be confirmed by phoning them at 416-284-0746
