davidlanzi Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: May 19th, 2007
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Paintball Club of Choctaw (only played once as well) - totally different type of play (tournament sup' air fields) so there's not a good comparison.
Review: My review of Adventure Zone is mixed.

GOOD
- I enjoyed the fields.
- The refs were friendly and did a good job being nice.
- They have a 12 acre field that is heavily wooded. Playing with anything less than 30 people on each side means you do a lot of creeping around wondering if you are walking into an ambush or a sniper position. This was the first time I can remember needing to really use my ears to play a game of paintball (listening for footsteps in the woods). It was very exciting.
- The Lost City field was pretty cool too. They built several (1/4 to 1/2 complete) cinder block buildings and positioned them well.

BAD
- Checking in. It was my first time there. I walk up to the trailer and look up into the open window. The guy inside just looks at me like "so, what the hell do you want?". I'm not a kid, I'm a 37 year old business man, so this was pretty annoying. As a customer, and someone new to the field I would have liked for someone to come up with something more than a "what do you want" look. So, customer service is not top notch, I can live with that I guess.
- Organization. Games were not well organized and communication was not good between refs who were getting players together to start a game and the players themselves.
- Waiting. 20 minutes in between games was the norm... which is too long for me.
- Fields are a little ways away from the staging area, but it's not ridiculous by any stretch of the imagination.

OVERALL
I give the place a 7 out of 10.

8 for the fields.
7 for the friendly refs.
8 for the cost (paint wasn't bad and because games were so spread out I only shot a case where I would normally shoot two).
5 for the customer service (this is what could really improve).

I would recommend playing here because the fields were decent. Just plan on supplying your own fun because they aren't going to provide it for you.

i agree with the looks and attitude some of the staff gives the players. our ref just complained all day about how he wanted to hurry up and get off work so he could get wasted at a party. the guy that runs the building waited to tell us he was out of air after we paid. they had a tourney that morning and used all the air and he would only fill our tanks to 1000 psi.
