Review: I'm really a casual player so this review might just help newbies and rec ballers but please read on. I've been to this field several times in the last year.

Fields:
they have 2 on site. Typically I only get to play on the larger field since they give the smaller one to private parties. But I have played on both fields and have to say that they're not too bad for speedball. With that said, they don't have the traditional capture the flag game or base defense. You get your standard balloon bunkers and a few support pillars for cover. They keep reconfiguring the bunkers each time I've been there so that can be a plus. Both fields are on the small side but makes for very fast games in terms of pace.

Rentals:
They have PMI piranhas which aren't horrible but still are rentals. The masks are all scratched up and the chest protectors could really use some replacing. You have to return the marker after each game so you might not get to hold on to the gun you just got use to. They have limited guns vs people and a good idea to keep them in the staging area for safety reasons ("You'll shoot your eye out...").

Price:
Paint isn't too bad. $65 for a case which varies in brand each time I've been there. But they haven't blown up in my marker in any negative way after using 3 cases of paint from them. Entry is $25. They only use nitro/compressed air by the way so leave your CO2 tank at home.

Refs: pretty cool guys. They're good on the safety aspect of things and violations do get stern warnings (thus you do get a chance to correct your evil ways). I got to play with the guys who typically ref there and I have to admit that they don't go in there to murder folk. So there is a good sense of sportsmanship overall but there were many examples of whiney types but I'm not 100% if they are refs but I do know that they are regulars ie. a noob took out some dude with a DM8 and just kept crying about how they didn't get hit yet you could obviously see a big splat mark on the side of their mask ... I've got a whole bunch of examples but won't run through them all.

Wait time: this is really hit or miss. Each time I've been there, I've done walk on and depending on the groups, you might be able to play on some private games or have to sit on your rear for quite some time until the next game. I guess the staff do what they can but this should be noted.

Misc: Air is included in the entry fee. They have lockers which use standard locks. No pro shop but you can buy little things like barrel sleeves (oh yeah...they won't let you use barrel plugs) and little things like that. The field gets pretty slicked up so unless you want to play on a giant slip and slide wear some good shoes with some decent grip on them. It can get pretty warm in there especially during the hot season.

K...'nuff said.
