Other Fields
in the Area:
Paintball Atlanta.. no comparison, this field wins hands down on staff and prices alone.
Review: My friends and I drove over from Birmingham one day to play here. We walked on with no problem at all, and ended up having a BLAST.

Good groups of players, solid crowds, good ref's, and the staff at the pro-shop was first rate.

Good Points:

1- PRICES... This place is aces at $21 including taxes for field/air fees, and you can bring on your own paint. With fees this cheap, however, I'll probably just buy paint from them next time, its worth it to encourage field owners to charge reasonable fees and keep us coming out more often! I can't stand price gouging places that overcharge for field, air, or rail you on paint... not the problem here!
2- STAFF... Refs were all top notch, and enforced safety rules very well. The staff at the pro-shop were very nice. I even met one who has the same last name as me and we had a great little chat.. she was a real sweetheart :) My friend's tank had a problem, and one of the pro's spent about 15-20 minutes diagnosing and fixing, and he didn't even charge us for the repair (just parts). I rarely buy stuff when I go to the field, but was happy enough with them and their prices, that I picked up a sweatshirt I thought was rad...
3- FOOD.... I never eat onsite, but my bud picked up hamburgers for each of us.. surprisingly they were very good (cooked on a gas BBG grille)
4- Competition.... We played against some really good players, and most of the time there was a nice balance of folks. The refs mad sure that teams were imbalanced.
5- Fields: Airball and speedball fields were all great. The city field was great as well, very big, but be warned about paint/air consumption. The field is big, cover is tough to root people out, and the games are LONG. I shot over 900 rounds on one game (25bps ramp mode.. stupid me, I set it back to 10-15 for later games). If you shoot a lot, or get into a tough bunker shootout (which I did, finally broken by an animal willing to get turbo-ramped by storming the bunker), you had better air up and paint up before even thinking about stepping onto this field. I recommend that people use a slow ramp mode, or just go semi for this field, or you will eat some @#$N paint up.

Negatives:

1- My truck got hit with a stray paintball... from where who knows, but some of the nets have holes in a few spots and curtains didn't cover a few spots. In all actuality, I think someone shot into the air which can't really be stopped. I hesitate even mentioning this, but believe that if you don't find at least one thing wrong, people don't believe all the good stuff you said :)


No question, we'll go back.. I live in Birmingham, and if we put a group of folks in one car, this fields fees make it worth it to even DRIVE over for the day if you need a change of pace from the local field.
