Review: I planned a party and it went well with some bumps in the road. Do not do business with them over the phone. I talked to them twice and they still did not reserve my party. I found out later that i was supposed to make my deposit over the phone but no one asked me to make the payment then. One guy actually told me it was no big deal and I could pay it later. They were nice enough to double book. This place fits a lot of action in such a small place. There are several extra long picnic tables all along the front so that there is enough room for your entire group. There were several mishaps with the rental guns but they were fixed or replaced quickly. We were aloud to bring our own food and drinks but we had to buy our paint there. You can have food delivered just tell them ahead of time. 10 people went through 3 boxes of paint in 2 hours at about 50 dollars a box. We were assigned our own ref who was very helpful. He organized our games, reserved our fields, managed our time, got us additional paint and let us have fun. I kind of wanted him to call people out for getting hit (including me) but he could see we were having fun as noobs and just let us do our thing. It kind of sucked because everyone would get hit trying to leave the field. We got a chance to try out any course that we wanted and did not wait for a field. The more modern and smaller fields with the blow-up bunkers fill up fas so we did not bother with them. The largest field in the back is less of a problem because they will split the field so that two games can be played. If you want to save money then go as a group. If you get tired of the rental masks then buy the JT Flex 8 in the shop. It is about the same price as Academy and it doesn't smell like an armpit. This is a good, fast paced and crowded paint ball field with many choices. We had a blast and now everyone is hooked on paint ball.

Parking is a bit of a problem. Carpool if you can. Do not park in front of the convenient store next door. I almost got into a fist fight with the owner of the store. I would suggest not buying anything from that place unless you have to. He will charge you for parking if he doesn't harass you instead. You can park at the gas pumps because that guy doesn't even sell gas. Supposedly, you can park on the street without getting ticketed. I would double check with the field. There is another lot on the south-west side of the field facing the street. If you are driving south go past the field do a U-turn and you will see the extra parking lot.

Bottom line: Don't expect them to tell you anything because you will have to ask for all of the specifics. They may not be the most organized but they do aim to please. If you have a problem they will try to fix it. You will save more money if you plan a group visit and probably get more attention from the staff. Show up early. I do not know about other fields but there is a lot of unbroken pant spilled all over the place. If they clean it up then there maybe less early in the day. I want to try other fields but this one was worth revisiting.

Thank you for the input. I will have a talk with the staff on the phone issues. Normally Becky is our reservations guru and is very informative. Thanks again and see you on the field.
