I have been playing paintball at DMZ for more years then I care to disclose. :) I have played at all incarnations of this field but personally find this the best one.
Field - Being a staunch woodsball player, I find this field has enough variety to keep a days play interesting. Fields as follows :The Woods - A large wooded field with a central fortification and many wooden log barricades. Basic and ol'skool woods play. Attack and Defend - Large base at which a team defends, and another attacks. Intense! Shanty Town - A cool field with many single story small buildings to play in combined with a nice chunk of woods. Paint throwing here is crazy! Out front of the field is an Airball field, for those that need a break from the woods, complete with bleachers to watch from! Finally, the coolest part of DMZ, the Tactical Town. 35 buildings, a bus, wrecked cars, a sniping tower. CQB dream come true! You will NOT be disappointed playing on any of these fields.
Staff - Now on to the Staff. A salty but friendly bunch, the refs are well trained and personable, and most definitely put safety first! I well articulated safety speech is given after the waiver signing and is strictly enforced. Penalties seem harsh but when you consider the consequences of breaking the rules, it is easily understandable. I don't know about you, but I feel much better knowing the dedicated DMZ staff are watching out for my safety...and the safety of all of your kids! NOTE: Barrel Bags are a MUST on this field. Show up without one and expect to fork out 5 bucks to purchase one. Safety first folks!
Players - all around good bunch of regulars. Expect a heavy mix of newbies and regulars. DMZ staff do a good job of making it fair and frequently change up the teams to make sure everyone has a good time.
Prices - Prices are reasonable and you seem to get really good paint for your money. Look into a membership if you plan to play there lots. It is seriously worth the 75 bucks in longterm savings! It was nice to know HPA and CO2 is available free all day. They usually have minor parts available if your gun goes down and the staff is knowledgeable about a variety of guns if you need help. I had a problem with my cyclone which Jay fixed in no-time!
Pro Shop - Shop is much better now it is large. The old shop was cramped. The new one kicks butt! Jerry has a lot of variety in what you can buy right off the shelf. What he doesn't have he can order. Besides markers, look for a good variety of parts from Takamo, Ops Gear, BT, Evil Branded the list goes on. You can also pick up cammies and Speedball gear and often he has old rental markers for sale cheap. Well worth the trip.
Bonus - If you have kids that are too young for paintball, DMZ also offers LaserTag (Ultimate Firepower). I've watched them play and the kids have a blast! Safe and fun alternative for kids and adults alike!
Over all I would say DMZ is a great place to experience and learn about paintball. Am I a drivelling fanboy? Maybe lol but lets be honest, I have had a few negative experiences there, but they are far outweighed by the good. Jerry is a standup guy and really does go the extra mile to help you out. He started where we all did in 'ball and has grown as the sport has.
Give DMZ a chance, you won't regret it! See you on the field!
