Review: I was extrememely impressed with this field and I'm happy to be able to be the first to praise it in a review. I played yesterday and had a fantastic time, everything was run smoothly and the staff was very cordial and helpful.

Operating hours- 9am-4pm on weekends, rain or shine.

Pricing-<B/> Field Pricing
All day Field Use with rented equipment $40
All day Field Use with own equipment $20
Rental includes: Marker= A well kept Spyder (I'm not completely sure of all the modifications since I brought my own gun but I noticed that one had a double trigger and may have had other modifications as well), mask, harness, hopper and compressed air
tank with unlimited fills.
Rental guns must use field paint, however it won't cost you an arm and a leg like some other fields. Cases of Rec-spot, Draxxus Midnight and Bronze were all available for about 4-5$ more than you would find at a regular paintball shop
Compressed Air Fill $5 (unlimited refills)
CO2 Fills
Tank Size
9-12 oz. $4 per fill
14-20 oz. $5 per fill

Equipment Rentals

Mask $5.00
Harness $5.00
Hopper $2.00
Chest Protector $5.00
Compressed Air Tank(unlimited refills) $10.00
CO2 Tank(with 1st fill) $5.00
Coveralls(various sizes available) $7.00

Fields-<B/> Currently they have three fields (two sup-air fields with two different types of artificial turf and one hydro-field). They have room for the addition of two more sup air fields and another hydro field which they seem to be in the process of building. I'm not sure exactly where their property boundaries are so it may be that they have more room than I thought. The fields were clean and well laid out, the hydro field had a particularly intriguing and adaptable lay out and while one sup-air field had less bunkers and more open space the other was more populated with bunkers depending on how you like to play.

Safety-<B/> The field has a velocity limit of 285fps. You are required to have a barrel condom/cover, not the older fashioned barrel plug. If you need a barrel cover they have them available at their check in station for 4$. The fields are quite close to the staging area that has benches and pic-nic tables so if your feeling chlosterphobic in your mask, its a short walk to be able to take it off. They aren't psychotic and rude about safety, but are polite in reminding you to maintain the rules.

Food-<B/> I personally didn't buy anything in the form of food but it seemed like they had a reasonable assortment of beverages and energy drinks as well as hot dogs and other snacks.

Staff-<B/> The staff is by far the greatest asset to the field, they committed to getting you into any game as quickly as possible. They are even willing to do one-on-one matches if there isn't anyone else waiting. Just request to play on a certain field and they'll get you in there.

Players-<B/> There was a pretty even mix of players in both age and skill level, ranging from first-time rentals to every weekend junkies. If you feel the teams are unbalanced just ask a ref and mix up the teams for the best action possible or if you want to have a private grudge match that can be arranged as well.

As a side note they have compressed air for both 4500 psi and 3500 psi. Unlimited refills for 5$

Overall-<B/> Non stop adrenaline, there isn't a limit to the amount of games you can play and it was fun every single time I went out. A total blast for any level of player due to the great staff and easy arrangements. Go out and try this place! By far the best field around!

Fields- They have four fields now.
1 Speedsball.
1 Hyperball.
1 X-Ball.
1 Some sort of dirt field.

They are all way fun my favorite was the dirt and speedball field. The hyperball isn't too fun and it's pretty big. You can't go through the tubes to travel.

Safety- I got there and they went over safety briefing. Once you past the point you need a mask on, you can't leave any field without a barrel cover on, no dry firing in the staging area. Barrel cover ons in the staging area


Food- Some pretty ok food, bought a hot dog that was ok and a gatorade. I believe they had energy drinks also.

Staff-They are real nice and do their job real nicely, they will run over to your ass if you yell paint check, they will also check anyone that you said you hit. They ask if your ok if you get bonus balled xD, they apply the safety rules like needed. they let you do 1v1 matches :D. They even fixed my back up gun. Also they let you do scrims for teams :D


Players- The players go from noobies to pretty darn good. Ages range from like 10-30. I've seen people with Angels and people with mechanical Spyders XD


Overall-It's my favorite field I had tons of fun there is no limit to games you can play, theres no limit to what games you can play either, I've seen a 9v9 of speedsball, 5v5 xball, and 6v6 dirt field game going all at the same time and you can hop right into any of them as long as noone is like for real serious business scrimming.


Paint is BYOB or buy field paint.

3500/4500 PSI fills

Rentals go from Markers, Hoppers, Tanks, Chest Protectors, Harness, Goggles, Barrel Covers, etc.

20 Dollar Admit, 5 dollar all day air.

paint from like 40-65 per case

9-4 time
