Review: This is hands down the worst field i have ever seen. ABSOLUTELY NO REFS at all with multiple games running by themselves. SAFETY..NONE! people walking around shooting freely in the parking lot, nobody checking the chrono's. The fields are poorly managed and very dangerous with a lot of broken glass, wood and scrap metal. Field owner will only allow "field Paint" which is understandable due to insurance reasons, but the paint is Diablo and it bounces more then it splatters. more or less a waste of money.

The pro shop does have quite a bit of selection for just about any gun you have when it comes to accessories, they have rentals but they are poorly maintained as well. more or less this is not a good place if your a beginner looking to get into the sport and if your experienced then stay clear of this place, its a waste of paint and you will get pissed off at the staff..oh wait..WHAT STAFF? i found myself reffing our games more than i was playing because most of the players were noobies and really didn't know any of the basic rules to the sport.

They did not have any snacks or a cafe as they have advertised so if you don't heed my warnings and you do decide to go here, bring EVERYTHING YOU NEED/WANT YOURSELF. The bathrooms would probably be the only thing i could say was up to par...go figure.

Ok, now for the playing fields. They only had 3 somewhat playable fields. 1 was a mocked up Alamo, which wasn't to bad but could use some creativity and experience.
1 was a speedball field with inflatables. This one was set up nice, just needed some serious maintenance. Most of the inflate's were dilapidated and were poorly anchored. 1 field was a wooded field with dirt berms scattered throughout. all in all, not to bad.


Don't expect friendly customer service from the owner Dennis. He makes it very clear he's in it for the money and not the sport. It should be both with this sport! The guy is very rude across the board. I watched him argue and belittle several customers in his shop which was not necessary. Not once did he leave his shop to check on the players or fields. If there were a gaming safety commission like O.S.H.A., this would need to be the first place on the chopping block. PARENTS, DO NOT BRING YOUR KIDS HERE!!! IT IS VERY DANGEROUS!!!. No refs to check chrono checks (device used to measure the speed of the paintball in fps) or barrel bags..accident waiting to happen.

I know it may seem like im bad mouthing this establishment, but trust me, im being fair. I have over 12 years experience in this sport and have played on professionally operated fields from San Diego, L.A. and Las Vegas as well as some tournaments. My expectations are not high because of my experience. I go to every field with an open mind. This place however, does not get a passing grade! on a scale of 1-10...i give it a -2

I gave this place another try to see if i caught it on a bad weekend. The only thing that changed is Dennis (the owner) seemed to be in a better mood. As far as the managing of the fields and games...still the same. No Ref's. No chrono checks, no improvements to the fields. Once again..this place gets a FAILING GRADE!!!
