Review: The Swamp has change a bit since i first played there. The concept field has received several updates and the speed ball fields have changed as well as the Shop. One thing that I have noticed that has not changed is the prices, which is a good thing...

The advertisements on the website claim that they have 3 woods ball fields, 2 speed ball fields and a concept field.

Of the 3 woods ball fields... The first field, also the main field, The Swamp, is a good sized field. There are plenty of bunkers and places to hide as well as a fairly open midfield for some good gunfights. The second field, The Wilderness, Is just as long as the 1st field but a lil thiner on the sides. There is however still enough space to do some flanking, it will require some ground crawling but it can be done. Over all it's a good field... The 3rd field, which is also part of the concept field, is LONG and very skinny. You have to do some running to get to the middle and meet up with the opposing forces and doesn't leave ANY room for flanking or hiding. It's a woods ball field cutout for an all out brawl short of being on a speed ball field.

Now on to the 2 speed ball fields. THERE IS ONLY ONE speed ball field, there used to be 2 but over time the wind has torn some of the netting and they were forced to cut back to one. They are doing the best they can to take care of what netting is left so they can keep the speed ball field in operation. The bunkers on the field could be taken care of a lil better as they sometimes get to deflated to use, they could also use a good changing as there are mud holes starting to develop at each of the bunkers. Over all, the speed ball field is good for some open play and to have fun on.

The Concept Field... 2 story castel, lots of bunkers, both man made and some tress and dirt put up. 2 vans, 2 campers, a boat, some fridges, and some other odd items. The Fiels is long and wide. USE IT...To me, it's the best field i have seen so far, but than again, i havn't played at a whole lot of different places....

Shop. They keep the basics stocked, Pods, pod packs, some shirts, air tanks, few guns, hoppers, over priced mask. They also have drinks and candy prices like you were in 7-11. Nothing to complain about. They also from time to time will order pizza from Domino's or Tommy will get out there and grill hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill...

Staff. Humm, I've seen a few come and go so it's a lil hard to be accurate on this but i will go based on the few that have been there and some of the new guys that are there.
The refs are 100% focused on safety and making sure that everyone has a good time. Any questions, just ask them and they will be happy to take a moment and fill you in on whatever it is you need to know. The game turnaround has gotten better over time. They are good about explaining in short detail the games that are gonna be played and on what field. ALL refs on the field can be spotted by the Orange shirts, not hard to find one and they are quick to get in the action and make a good call...
The shop and air station staff. The shop staff used to be good but now there are a few teenagers in there that don't care to much about what's going on. Last time I was in there, it took me and my 2 friends 30 mins to get in, get the field waivers signed, get the rental gear (we only rented 1 gun), and get going. The Gun tech that they have knows nothing about guns other than how to take them apart and put them back together. He claimed that the tippman 98 was better the the BL Intimidater. Now maybe that was a matter of opinion and that's ok, but a staff member should never start a debate on what gun they think is better. On the the air station staff. Usually there quick and they know what there doing, Occasionally you will find a 13 y/o with hair in there eyes and a hat pulled down over that with an ipod stuck in there ears, in there. Other than that, the shack is close to the field and always ready to go.

Field fees are good at $15.00 all day air. Paint is reasonable, starting at 16 a bag.

Overall, I give it a 9.5 out of 10. They have got it together for the most part. There is no field out there that is perfect but they are close....
