Going east over the Port Man Bridge, take the second exit (50), hang a quick left than a right onto 160th and follow it all the way down past Fleetwood Park.
A bunch of us have recently gotten into paintball and have been making rounds at various local fields to see what we like and what we don't. Ambush would be our second trial run (first was Sniperz).
Overall, Ambush was good, unfortunately we didn't think and went on Mother's Day and the games were very limited; there was 9 people active at the most.
The rentals were decently priced, $25 for marker, mask, air, and 100 balls, with $10 an additional 100, $45 for 500. The markers were Tippman 98's, a pleasant surprise - these guns kick ass compared to every other rental I have tried, accurate and didn't jam.
The bushball field was one of the better ones I've seen, but it could be kept a little neater. A lot of branches and roots made accuracy and running a little strained. Overall plenty of bushes, bunkers and covers, with combinations of manmade and natural obstacles.
One thing I didn't like was the reffing, pretty much kids who just said go then walked off the field. The safety speech at the beginning was a little half-assed too, we had two newcomers that I had to lecture a bit more myself.
The speedball looked sweet but we didn't get a chance to check ti out too much because it was closed off for practices.
Overall this place is worth checking out. It only lost points with me due to shoddy reffing and the need for some grooming. ( 7 of 10)

I've always wanted to go around too the lower mainland fields to check what field is the best. Now you're doing my job for me. Are you going to be going to North Shore and Twassen as well? I'm very excited for more of your reviews.
