don't know of any other fields by it, castaic and bellflower are closest things I can think of
Sundays (will explain)
Cool people in parking lot
starting off, really cheap here. 20 dollars for all day (9:30/10-4:00), bring your own paint, then its $2 dollars for 9oz co2, $3 for 12-16, and $4 for 20. that's pretty hard to beat when most parks try to make you buy their paint and pay for all day air.
Refs and safety are great. Refs are friendly, will talk to you if you get knocked out early, and when you call for paint check, they go running. they all also use towels for their safety, but it makes them easy to spot.
And safety enforcement was great. 2 examples. 1, before a game, some kid was messing with his mask on the goggles on area. the ref just straight kicked him out of that game, sent him to another ref to explain. made an example out of him which teaches everyone around him and especially him. Also, they used walkie-talkies when they think someone is firing over the limit. they pulled some guy out and tryed to help him get it down to the 270-280 range when he as clearly firing 325-350 plus.
they have 3 fields, 1 is pretty straight foward, left to right, probably best map they have IMO, other is Vietnam, part woods-ball on one side, part straightforward on the other. Other one is also great too. Main problem with all of these is rocks. rocks everywhere, even on the way there. not a giant safety concern, but still, watch your step.
Now for me, I prefer, not an intimate game, but not a giant sized game. I've been their 2 times before, both Saturdays, and it usually starts off at around 50 on 50, which can get quite hectic. then they usually split up into basically noobs and exp, you can play with whoever you choose and then the games are usually a little better like 20 on 20 for exp. and probably 25-30 vs on noobs. But this time we went sunday, and all day, exp players had 10 on 10 games which were great because thats pretty much a private party. not too crazy where you get blasted if you're out in the open after the first 20 secs, but never to the point where you can't find the other team. at the end of the day, some people left so then it was more like 6 on 6, so we integrated with the nubs and it was like 20 on 20. So Summing this up, If you like big games, go Saturday. if you like private party games, go sunday, not too many of you though ;)
edit: turns out alot of people read reviews here. went this sunday, was a good amount more people there than last time. could just be summer time too though..
time management ws good. ref usually came by right after each game around the lot telling people 5 mins next game, 10 mins next game. and they were usually pretty accurate. not like most parks where 5 "paintball minutes" means 15 real time minutes.
The only real problem I have with this place is the port-a-pottys. I have yet to use them, but a Port-a-potty is what it is. besides that, great experience, friendly people in the parking lot, and if Im not working this sunday, will probably go again. 9/10
