Review: To start off, Wanna Play is my favorite field in my area hands down. I started going here last spring and have only gone to other fields when the weather does not allow me to go here. They are open on Saturdays and Sundays and i believe you can rent out the field with a large enough party on weekdays. It is also a byop (Bring your own paint) field so you can bring any kind of paint you like to the field. They also sell paint at the field and at the store at decent prices. The most expensive is marbalizer for $55 a case. The also sell premium for $48 a case, evil and some lower quality paint at lower prices. The entry fee for all day is $15 which includes unlimited C02 or HPA fills. During the spring, summer and fall they have two airball fields set up and a hyperball field. All of these fields have netting around them. They also have 5-6 woods ball fields. Some of these are fairly large and can play games on them with 30vs30 and run smoothly. During the winter months the airball is taken down and the hyperball can not be played because they take the netting down from it. The refs have always been very serious at this field and do there job well. Safety is a major concern for this field and players are constantly reminded about barrel covers and masks staying on. A unique rule they have at WPP is that everyone must lay there guns on the ground before the players are allowed take there masks off after a game. For some this may seem odd but i think it is a good idea. The refs are strict but are also nice and always willing to help if you need it.
Before you are allowed to go out and start playing you have to attend a mandatory safety briefing. These are held throughout the day for people that show up late. If you have your own marker you must go and chrono before you play. The chrono speed is set at 280 fps max. Ramping, full auto or any other kind of modes (except for semi auto) are not allowed when playing woodsball. This helps keep the games friendly and helps to avoid overshooting. The games usually have a 15 min time limit on them but do not usually last this long. If the games get to the 10 min mark the refs will call 2 mins left to get the players moving. If nobody moves they usually call the game over after another 3-4 mins. The players that come here usually come every weekend or every other weekend and everyone gets to know each other. Most of weekends i play there are younger kids and a dozen or so first timers.
I only have a few complaints about this field. The first one is that they only run the compressors for the HPA fills for the first hour or so of the day. So for the rest of the day you get lower and lower fill pressures. At the end of the day you are lucky if you can get a 2800psi fill for your 4500psi tank. My second complaint is that they do not serve food at the field. They did up until last November or so. I'm not sure if they will start again in the spring or not. This is not a big problem because about 5 mins down the road is a mcdonalds and wendys. My last complaint is that the refs don't always split up the teams fairly. If a group of very experienced players is playing with the group of walk on woods ball players i don't believe it's fair to put all of the experienced players on one team and put all of the walk ons on the other and call it fair after giving the experienced players a few walk ons so the teams have even numbers. This wasn't a big problem because they always change it if one team does a lot better than the other and they always ask the players if they are alright with the teams.
In conclusion, Wanna Play Paintball is a very good field (my favorite). The refs do a good job keeping things safe, the fields are nice and the prices on paint are good. If you don't like the prices on paint you can always bring your own. BYOP! I would strongly suggest that you try WPP at least once.
