Thunder Paintball
Review: Safety of the Field: Excellent. Refs and other players are very vigilant about making sure barrel bags are on outside the netted areas and goggles are on inside the netted areas. Entrances to fields are clearly posted with "Goggles On" signs and players are chronoed atleast twice a day (start of the day and then after lunch) if not more often.

Hours of Operation: Standard. 10-4 on weekends

Prices: Reasonable

Proshop: Decent. Helpful.

Refs: They do their best. I have seen much worse.

Rules: Poor. Normal rules mostly.

Paint: Terrible

The last two subjects are why I will rarely go back to the field if ever. First off, they don't count gun/hopper hits which is annoying, but that is coming from a tournement players standpoint where you rarely see more. (It's annoying to paint someones gun and hopper pink with 30 paintballs and see them continue playing. Quite a few fields don't count gun hits so I decided to let that point go) What I really want to talk about is a combination of the rules and the paint. This is the worst field paint I have ever shot. I have played in big tourneys, local tourneys, used field paint, and bought my own from the store. But I have never had paint that was so inconsistent in bore diameter, shape, and breakage. They have a rule that if you hit someone with 3 paintballs right in a row it is overshooting but they allow full auto and ramping. On multiple occasions I have seen players shoot a stream of 10 balls at a player, atleast half hit, and NONE of them break. So most players are inclined to shoot more balls, or keep shooting an exposed player until they see a break. When this happens they say the player was overshot and is still in. @#$%^&*#$%!!!! If the paint wasn't horrible I wouldn't have to shoot so much to get a break on someone. I would prefer to shoot someone once in the pack and have it break than to have to shoot someone over and over again until I got a break on them.

If they fix how they store their paint, so it is consistent, I would have no problem going back.

Paint was an issue at this park when at the time that chitown23 posted. PMI was producing a very inconsistent quality field paint at that time, what a bunch of junk!
This park has switched to procaps since then, due to procaps establishing a warehouse in Portland for the Pacific NW. Paint is very fresh now and no longer a problem.

Give them a try again chitown23.
