Review: A couple of friends and I walked on this past Saturday afternoon and these are my ratings and comparisons to the other area fields I've played.

Safety: They never gave a safety speech when we arrived, but as I said, we walked on in the afternoon and are all clearly past our teenage years. So it's possible some of the younger kids got the speech at another time. They did repeatedly ask people to put on their barrel socks in the staging area and masks on in the field, so safety was a priority for the refs.

Fields: The fields were pretty standard fare. There were two barrel fields and two lego fields, all of which were about 30 yards by 50 yards. Real basic setup. They had a fort that was fun to play, a small structure on top of a hill rising 10 feet above the surrounding field, with the two teams approaching the centrally located fort from either side. More interesting cross-fire opportunities. Overall, though, not nearly as good as either Forney or Grapevine, both of which have larger and more interesting scenario fields.

Pricing: Only $20 for admission and all day air for walk-ons. Very cheap. They were charging $15 for 500 rounds of paint, which is pretty steep, but you can bring your own.

Facilities: The staging area was all right. There were several picnic tables scattered around outside of the check-in counter and equipment storage area. The air was self-serve, which was convenient. Not as nice as Forney but not as crowded as Grapevine.

Refs: Contrary to previous reviews I've seen here, I thought the refs were pretty good. They got walk-on games started fairly quickly with only 5-10 minute breaks in between games. They were quick to investigate "paint check" calls and called the games fairly. High marks for them.


I went out, had a fun time for a cheap price, and got well ref'ed games. I give it 6 out of 10 stars. Good place, but nothing spectacular. Still, I won't hesitate to play there again.
