Review: For those who want a quick summary of gateway here it is:

Bads: The prices are a little pricey, long air lines(sometimes). They still dont have a proper place to rent out guns/equipment(It's basically a large wooden box[Used to be a trailer]) No foods or drinks! I drank all my water one day, and they didnt have any more, it was kind of depressing. But I had my friend drive down to the QT down the road and it was all good.

Goods: diverse fields, (but they took their sup air field down, im guessing temporarily, but i dont know), they have hyperball, mounds, a village type field, and 3 other woodsball fields. Also they enforce the safety, when the match is over the ref stands at the gate and makes sure barrel plugs are on, and when going on to the field, makes sure goggles are on. 7/8 of the refs i played with were nice, Im guessing that one other guy was having a bad day or something.

The miniscule annoying things: There are only really small roofed areas, if it were to rain, your equipment would get totally soaked. Now, there are picnic tables, which is an improvement to before, but there are only about 4-5, and if lots of players come, confusion could ensue. Also between the mounds and hyperball fields, theres no net, so often a noob could shoot you from the other field, which is extremely annoying.

So all in all, I give gateway a 8 out of 10, The field is good, but it could be improved.

EDIT: Gave more specific directions. =D

Thanks for the review. We appreciate all customer feedback. To address your complaints, we dont have a "building" because the city won't allow us to build one. Its not a matter of being "cheap" as for the picnic tables, we had more but they get stolen as fast as we make them, sorry. Our airball was down because someone put regular gas in the leaf blower causing it to break. As far as pricing goes, If you look around we are on par if not lower than most places. And finally, when there are a lot of people, you will have lines. Thanks for the input.
