Other Fields
in the Area:
Paint Ball Quest is MUCH more organized and has a lot more fields.

Advanced Alabama Adventures is about as organized (not saying much) and has a few more fields.
Review: A guy at work told me about this field. I decided to try it last Saturday (12-29-2007). First off I would like to say my son and I did have fun playing here. This field has A LOT of potential if they fix some problems.

First off the cashier did not know the pricing for the field fee and the all day air fee. According to their website (at the time) the cost was $15 field fee and $10 all day air fee. They tried to charge me another $10 for using my own paint in my own guns (The web site said nothing about this.) (EDIT 12-13-2008: The website now shows the charge for using your own paint. Below is how it looked when I 1st checked the prices)

When I questioned the charge (for using my own paint) one of the owners got “ill” with me and told me the website was wrong and I needed to pay the extra $10. I said see ya and started to leave. The 2nd owner was a lot nicer and talked me into staying (with out the extra $10 own paint fee). On the plus side the field paint was very inexpensive ($35 for 2000)…I can’t remember the brand but it looked good. The balls were very round with no dimples. They let me and my son shoot some before we left. We both had very good grouping and nothing chopped in the gun. I have a Tippmann Flatline and my son uses an Empire Twister.

There were also safety issues. NO ONE EXPLAINED THE RULES TO US. If any body had played at Paint Ball Quest (or even AAA) you know you get a lecture on all the rules and safety procedures before you play. This did not happen here. It was not just us. There were some 1st or 2nd timers playing that I had to explain some of the rules to. (They did not know they had to start the game behind the main bunker. They tried to hide out in the field. ) The Ref did not correct them...Our team had to tell them.

They need more Referees!!!!!! Several times we were just standing around look for a REF. One time I had to go find a REF after waiting of 20 Minutes for a game to start. I was told they were short handed because some of there regular Refs were playing a tournament (That’s my problem how???) The Refs they had also need more experience. One Ref took my son’s gun away (temporarily) because he thought it was full auto and wanted to turn it off. He had never herd of a response trigger.

The fields they had were GREAT and were FUN to play. The downside is there were only 4 fields open. I was told they were working on 2 new woods fields.

Don’t get me wrong both my son and I had a good time, but this field needs some time to mature and grow. I believe this time next year it should be a great place to play. I Hope there still open.
