Hells Survivors, Predator Paintball etc. I think each of the fields almost serves their own niche of players I will explain more below.
Well where to begin... First I have played before and after the new owners. I found both times to be well laid out. My biggest reason for writing this review is because I WANT to play at this field more often. Its pretty close, I am used to its layout. I like what they have done to expand the woods area, their admission pricing is in line, and they are a friendly bunch.
They seem to strictly follow safety, and encourage new players to come out. The fields have a nice variety ,I do seem to play more of the "village/woods" than any other area though. Thats mainly due to the others I play with preference however.
I especially like their new paint line up, and the paint pricing is pretty good. I somewhat disagree with the idea of the Outpost Store bought paint "cant be used at the field"... and left over field paint cant be used there again. Which actually brings me into my biggest complaint and single reason for writing this review.
There simply needs to be more games. I have been out there 5 Saturdays this summer ( I don't need to explain this but I play at other places as well). Each and every Saturday we barely got any play time in. The refs were more concerned with "hanging out" and talking than actually initiating another game. I have a lifetime membership... but when I bring new paying players (we all buy their paint of course) I really want to show them a good time. I DON'T want to have them standing around thinking paintball is a few quick games and a lot of talking.
I don't really get the idea of NOT having games every 20 minutes or even 30 minutes. It would sell more paint, and keep players coming back. The last time I went we literally walked the entire village and woods fields shooting randomly, came back stocked paint, almost decided to go home and finally a game was about to start. Literally 20 minutes later it did start and it was over in 15 minutes... We were then expected to wait another what, 1 hour to play again for 15 minutes? So at that rate in four hours you get 1 hour of playtime? I can find a better use of my time thanks.
Kevin if you ever read this I beg you to give the refs a good kick in the butt. I have some new people playing with me this weekend 09/08/07 and guess what... I wont be taking them to your field, I will be making a 1 hour drive to a field that is going to give the new players some actual play time, not talk time.
I wish this field the best and hope that some games actually start taking place there for the walkins, because right now its not happening.
I would rate the field an easy 8-9 but due to the problem above it comes in at slightly better than average for me. So I am rating it a 6/10.
