Review: This is a fun paintball field to play at. When I was there, and it was only January, they must have had about 60 players near the end. Which is really nice because then the scenarios are just that much tougher. Rentals are 10 dollars until the middle of March, after that they are 15 dollars until the middle of October. Rental guns are Tippmanns which are awesome guns. Overall though this field failed to meet my expectations. They only have one field which is by the way an awesome field! But they would need much more variety to keep me coming back again and again. This one field those is quite unreal. They have two large mountains, or sniper towers. Which are great for playing capture the flag, defend the base, or just all out killing. The paintballs were no name paint when me and my three buddies bought 2000 between four of us we were expecting better paint for 150 bux Canadian. The way they operate the CO2 fills is quite weird. Instead of filling up your tank they give you a tank which you must return at the end of the day. I prefer to use my own tank, since their tanks were using shot o-rings. The safety is also quite good. They give a very good speech at the start of the day and ensure all players always follow these guidelines. If they do not, then say good bye. Also I found that many experienced players attend this field as do many rookies which makes for fun and ensures that you will get better by playing at this field. Although they do have a big red chrony it is not enforced, and I am sure that some players were shooting very hot. They're paintballs were curving like all hell and I know for a fact that they were shooting hot. To make this field a better field they need to make more fields for variety, enforce the safe shooting speed of under 300fps, and get better paint for such a price. If you live on the north shore then Im sure you will only go to this field, but since im from Burnaby, I will now only go to either ambush in Surrey, panther in Langley, or maple ridge paintball. North shore was fun, but not up to snuff.

They woudn't let you use your own tank??? I've never heard of that and I play there every sunday for the past year...(well not in December of course) And they do enforce that chrony thing it's just that after players had them chronoed by staff, they turn them up again when no one's looking. They can't check every single person every single game. They have an honor system when it comes to regulars and newcomers that once chronoed, it stays that way but people don't always have that honor.

1. there is only one field yes, but they set up boundaries for smaller games (back field center flag push you cant use the hill)
2.the paint is not no name paint it is all a variety of nel splat. if it wasn't shooting good then you can always ask Andy to take a look at it and he might change it for you if there is a problem with it, he takes great pride in that paint because it is one of the best paint brands on the market. it could have been the cold or the moisture in the air or any number of things
3.they don't fill your tank because they don't have co2 cylinders there, so they let you use the tanks for FREE, and if is a crap oring then ask for a new one.
4. I KNOW FOR A FACT that there are no regulars stupid enough to shoot over 300, and if they did it was because velocity changes with temperature , especially in the winter months with it being so cold out. just because there balls were curving like hell doesn't mean they were hot, moisture, wet paint, and chopping also cause balls to curve.


Please don't flame a field because you had a bad experience this ONE time, go back in the summer or when all the vegetation has grown back and you will see how good the field is and how much variety this field has when summer is in full tilt
