I have played at Three rivers paintball and mvp. Both are more organized with better woodsball fields.
Well I'll start with safety The field owner doesn't enforce barrel blocking devices. If you missplaced or lost yours there is no shop to buy one, the field owner should at least carry barrel socks in case you cant find yours. I had an SP8 shoot right past me in the staging area.
Next I dont play speedball but I have seen speedball fields and this one is on a 45 degree
incline, I think that would make for pretty poor play conditions. The woodsball field is part sink hole and part ravine seriosly. Half the field is seperated by a creek that has a ravine on one side that you have to take a path from your base to go up once your up there its only about eight feet to the boundary on your right and the cliff on your left there is no way down till you go all the way to the other side about a half mile. The other half of the field is log bunkers that let plenty of paint through and mud sink holes that take your leg up to your knee and keep your shoe.
Woodsball is only on sunday. I don't know what time they say the games start but believe me, both times I went it didn't get started till 12 and ended around 4 so you barely sqeeze 3 games because everyone takes a 30 to 40 minuet break between games.
The prices are good 10 dollers for admission and all day air
35 for a case of the worst paint made, It has no color in the fill and is very thin almost water like.
there are never any rules anounced like at other parks. they don't have a truce system its very laid back like all the other reviews say.
No services or proshop no staff other than the guy who takes your money, a sponsored player takes you in the woods, seperates you into 2 teams and says wait for the horn.
Some of the players there are alright but most of the sponsored players think they own the place and try to push the noobs around making a very shady atmosphere like there not part of the group.
They have a portajohn for a restroom and a colemen cooler in a barn they operate out of with drinks. no joking. I have opted in to private fields on specialops that were way way nicer and funner than splatterzone

Sorry to hear you both had a bad day of Paintball at SPLATTERZONE. Every player has had a bad experience one time or another. I'm just sorry it had to be you guys. By the way me & my team allways play at SPLATTERZONE and we love the place. They have great prices the people are real nice. The fields right now are a work in progress. SPLATTERZONE has big plans for the future. Several more outdoor fields and a Tournament Complex are in the works. Well, back to your comments, #1) Barrel bags are available all you need to do is ask for one. #2) As for the Airball field being on a slope. As noted on their web-site this is a temporary location. #3) The way you have explained the Woodsball field makes me want to start playing woodsball again. I used to love that stuff!.....Hills, creeks, ravine, Mud, Huge field sounds like everything you need to make a awesome Woodsball field. Doesn't sound like you guys like Woodsball that much maybe you should have been playing airball with us. #4) As noted on their web-site Team play starts at 10AM & Rec/ woodsball starts at noon.
#5) As for the Paintballs: they start at $35 a case with the option to purchase better paintballs at a higher price. But, O'well you seam to have your mind made up about SPLATTERZONE so I suggest you don't come back. Go play OUTLAW PAINTBALL where they use the truce system!
Sounds like he has some high standards and is either a bad judge of character and distance or tends to exaggerate. 1/2 mile is about 2600 feet the max length of the woods filed is probably more like 800 feet. an error of roughly 70%
I would consider the entirety of the review to be exaggerated by the same 70%
