Review: Well this it i think my 8-9th time to barrie paintball so i thought it was about time to review this amazing feild.

Barrie paintball is where i played my first game of paintball, an i must agree, it may be the most addicting sport out there.

Safety: As with all good feilds, safety is first and formost. The standard masks on signs and constant rememinders from the Ref's and staff about barrel bags keep players safe. Also their is not smokeing outside of the "no shoot zone" due to the posibility of forest fire.

Feilds: AHHH one of the best reasions to play at barrie, on the one side of the stageing area is the "hill feilds" such as hamberger hill and vimmy ridge, these are steep hills with wood and log bunkers up and down the slopes. Im persionly not a fan unless im running DOWN the hill cuz im lazy. On the other side (and my favorite) is a junk-yard setting type feilds. These include the vally and the town. You will find cars, planes, barrels, box's, snadbags, bukers, crators, castels, trees and just about every other item that can provide cover on the feild, makes for a great urban warefare setting. And last but not leat, the air stip....clearly the best feild out there. In the middle is an old Cf-100 air plane with various building (including a control tower) around the plane. Very fun map. Its also worht mentioning that they have a NEW FEILD under ciunstruction, below the air strip. This feild is a maze like setting with high walls and an open space in the middle...if you like room clearing this is the map for you!

Hours: Open weekends and weekdays for groups of 8 or more....see website for more detailed discription of hours

Prices: Par with other feilds, 10 for owners 20 for renters, 140 for a case of 2000. They now use "Barrie: brand paint (yes it actuly says :BARRIE: on the paintballs). This means that (yea your reading this right) YOU CAN BRING BACK BARRIE BRAND PAINT, and use it again! You just need to get the reff to check the paint first to make sure its not frozen.

Rules: No full auto, no ramping, semi auto only...tippmann RT, rocking and e-grips (on semi) are allowed. Mercy rule is in effect, watch language as there are a lot of younger kids that play here, dont shoot the ref, obay the ref, only barrie brand paint.

Services: Free CO2 and HPA for players, they provide CO2 and HPA fills for non players for a small fee, they will fix any marker or other eqipment bought at the proshop for free. Clean bathrooms, running water, first aid kits, lockers and self-fill HPA station.

proshop: Good selection of common gear, lots of barrels, some markers, barrel bags, toher stuff. Overpriced but i havent found one that isint.

Staff: AMAZING staff, its family owned so the staff are friendly, polite and helpfull. If you blow an o-ring they give you one for free! My slide check broke and the guy let me borrow his tools to take it out of the line..good service.

reffs: Good ref's. They call hits and the "he is hit, let him out" wich is always appreciated if you have 4 ppl shooting at you. Ref's are fair and will help new players with gun malfunctions (such as "your gun is out of air", hey we all did it out first game)

Players: i find paintball players at all feilds (for the most part) to be a friendly bunch of people, meeting new people is a nice part of the paintball experiance. At barrie in particular, the crowd tends to be a bit younger 12-14, as it is a "family friendly park". There are people of all walks of life from speedball to mili-sim. All follow the rules and respect each other.

Facilities: Clean and tidy, washrooms, tables, lockers, change rooms.

Food: candy bars and vending machines for sale all the time, hot dogs and hambragers for 1.50 at lunch 1:00-2:00.

Overall an amazing feild, its #2 on the best feilds ive ever played on (number 1 is wassag because i LOVE blackhawk town), good feilds, nice players and amazing staff....keep up the good work guys!
