Review: The most important aspect of any field is the safety, so that’s the first thing to talk about. The refs gave a safety briefing before any games, chronographed all the players at 260, and were diligent throughout the day reminding players about barrel covers and masks when necessary. Also, dead zones could be found near each field, protected with netting. It would seem like this is common sense, but you’d be surprised (think NJ Paintball Club’s “dead zones”). Also, there were at least two refs present at all times. A lot of places only have one ref with each game, which just doesn’t cut it sometimes. There were two here, and others came and went from the staging area over the course of the day. Two thumbs up for safety.

Now on to the fields. I didn’t get to see all of them, since I had to leave early in the afternoon, but the couple I got to play on were quite fun. One featured a small fortress type structure with surrounding woods and bunkers, which made for interesting games, as well as the possibility of attack-and-defend type scenarios. Another was based around structures and features very close engagements, also very fun. Well not as flashy or rigidly designed as fields elsewhere (On Target comes to mind), they were very fun, and seemed to be well maintained. I’ll have more to add when I see the other fields after another trip or two, but they have at least one speedball course and at least one woodsball course that I missed out on, having left early.

The price: to put it briefly, great value. Here’s how it works: admission is $15. You can bring your own paint. An all-day air pass is $15, air or CO2. HOWEVER, if you buy paint from the field (good paint, too) at $15 a bag or $45 a case, the air pass is included. I normally play pump, so a bag is more than enough to last me a whole day (I rarely go through more than a bag even playing semi), so for $30, you get everything you need for the day. That’s a sweet deal. Have leftover paint? Bring it next time, buy a bag instead of a case, and for another $30 you’re set.

As for the miscellaneous stuff, the owner and other staff members were all very polite, very personable, and helpful. The field is a bit removed from where you sign in, but they have a bus that ferries players to and from the fields, which is a cool little system. A somewhat unique feature is that, being located next to an airport with a skydiving school, you’ll periodically see the sky full of parachutes over the course of the day. My only complaint is that for a couple of games, the regulars and off-duty refs teamed up against the walk-ons, which wasn’t really fair, considering the proportion of first-timers/renters on one team, but after two games, it was switched around. It seems like that happens almost everywhere, but that doesn’t excuse it. The players were all courteous, though, which was refreshing, and along those same lines, a posted rule forbids swearing, which is something you don’t see everywhere, and something I immediately liked.

The short version, if you didn’t feel like reading all that, or just want to review, is that Accurate is a safe, fun place to play, with an excellent staff, at a great price. I’ll be back as soon as my schedule permits. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. 9/10
