Splat Action. Large outdoor field complex. No comparison really.
Review: First of all, I play at this field a lot and I think it's great. Yes it's expensive(ugh). Yes its dirty (it's paintball, you're going to get dirty). And yes, it's dark in there. But if you like to work the shadows and sneak up on people, then this is the field for you. Once you become familiar with the field layout and learn the angles, you can sneak around in the shadows and wreak havoc on everyone else. The down side is that people can cheat because it's so dark. But most people are pretty honest and call their own hits.

The field layout is pretty cool. It's an indoor field approximately 60'x80'. Each corner of the field has buildings with three of the building having towers. The center are is a hyper-ball layout made of plastic culvert pipe and plastic barrels with some plywood "x"s mixed in. They play music during the games and use the music to signal the start of the game(Tip; you don't want to be standing in the open when the music starts. If I see you, you're going to get shot.). The lighting is low, so you can move around in the shadows and keep the other team guessing. The floor is covered with wood chips and can get pretty messy so dress accordingly. Also the walls are covered with paint so try not to lean on the walls.

The staff are very friendly knowledgeable and do their best to make sure everyone has a fun and safe experience. They try to keep the teams fair by making sure that the more experience players are divided evenly between the two teams.

The pro shop is well stocked and the prices are reasonable and comparable to what you might find online.

Most people complain about the price of paint. I too wish the paint was less expensive. I would play a lot more and I think more people would get into the sport. But when you compare the total cost with other fields it balances out. PP paint cost 80 bucks for a case where other field might charge 60. But PP only charges 5 bucks for all day air when other fields might charge 10. The field fee is 15 bucks where other field might charge more.

Overall I think PP is a fun place to play at and would recommend it to anyone. Once you become familiar with field and learn how to use what other people might consider weakness to your advantage, it becomes a challenging game of strategy and lots of fun.
And it sure beats playing in the rain.
