Adventure Zone (only played one time as well) - this is a woodsball field and caters to a totally different type of player, so there is no good comparison.
Though I am not really an airball (sup' air / xball / whatever they call it) type of player, I really enjoyed my day at this field.
- Level of competition (woodsballers and newbies may put this in the bad category). If you are looking to improve your tournament play, or meet tournament players, I guess this is the place to go in OKC. I am normally a woodsball player, but I have a speedball gun and don't mind throwing a lot of paint at very small targets. I went knowing I would be one of the least experienced players there. Because they were good, I never got really lit up even when totally exposed. Just one clean shot was all it took. It could have been ugly.
- Camaraderie. I was alone and from out of town and the players there were more than happy to help me out and were very friendly.
- Big bunkers. The air bunkers were nice and big... easy to hide behind.
- They do have a woodsball/hybrid type field with tires, spools, and steel drums. We only played a couple games when some army guys showed up, but I was in my element out there and the poor army guys didn't stand a chance even though we only played hopper-ball.
- Customer service was very good. Even though the place was run out of a POD type storage container, the staff was pretty nice. They even took back a case of paint I felt didn't perform well and allowed me to trade it in for something else. Thanks!
- The field is 20 yards from the shaded staging area. You won't get tired from walking.
- I did go through three cases. I actually don't consider that bad because I love to shoot, but those on a budget may not be happy. Many of the tournament players out there are shooting free paint, so they aren't really restricted either.
- Games started when players were ready to play, so sometimes this was 20 minutes or so after the last game ended.
- We didn't have a ref, BUT people were good about calling themselves out (I assume). There was a sense of honor among most of the players as they played in tournaments.
- Only one field was set up (plus the permanent hybrid field). I found it exciting enough for me that I didn't need more, but if you go there often it may get lame.?.?
I give this place an 9 out of 10 (I rounded up)
9 for my overall feeling of how my day playing paintball went (very important). 9 for the camaraderie and friendly competition. 8 for the customer service and staff (remember, no ref). 8 for the fields (only one airball, but I loved the hybrid field since we owned the army guys).
I would recommend playing here if you want to improve your speedball play. You may even find yourself a team here. This is not a field for woodsball players or somewhere to bring your 10 year old son for his first paintball experience!
