Review: First, I want to say that in the Killeen, Fort Hood, Copperas Cove area, right now this is the only outdoors field to play at (and when I went it was extremely busy), so despite my review, until a new outdoor field opens, this is the place to go, The other field in the area is the number one option.


The Fields.

The initial field you will see right in front of the store front is the woods field. It is a decent sized field that has a few good burmers and bush areas. I didn't notice any trash in the playing field. I had no problem with the field itself and enjoyed it. My problem came with the netting, The front area netting shows it signs of wear, but also shows where it has been repaired, but on the right side of the netting there is a huge tear, you could call it a hole, in the netting. This thing is about a foot in diameter or even bigger. I tried to stay away from it for obvious reasons. I've played here a few times and this thing has never been repaired. I've even seen grown men climb through it to get into the field. The big issue I have with this is the fact that there are a few benches and tables in that area for players to rest, and in every case have goggles off. You get a fire fight at the right angle and one of those paintballs come through that hole. You know whats next.

There are a few speedball courses. They only had one with a few inflatables up and it was used primarily by the children in a birthday group. I got a kick at watching them use the bunkers and push them while behind them to advance.

The main attraction to this place is "The Alamo". This is a decent sized enclosure cut out like the alamo with windows all around the bottom floor and a row of windows on the second level in the front and back. I liked that if you played defense they do give you time to set up and baracade the openings. I played both sides of this game. Defense is extremely hard as you are in this area and you can only see through these cracks to see where the advancements are. Once the other side gets to the outside walls and starts opening the window baracades, you really have to be on your toes. Playing defense is hard to win, but not impossible. Offensively, there is quite a few brushlines and wooded areas with obstacles to be used for cover and if played right you can collapse the alamo in no time. Very fun game.

There are two other fields that I did not play. The first is "the castle" which is just a bunch of dirt burmers and a tree in the middle. This is also the starting point of the alamo offense. There is also one that a few players reffered to as The Town which I did not see because from what I was told was a decent walk aways.

Staff. The guy who works the counter (not the owner) was vey friendly and was somewhat versed with paintball gear and equipment. They usually have two teenagers working the fields "reffing" if you would call it because its pretty much non-existent. A few of the adult and seasoned players found ourselves keeping the kids and first timers in check with the goggles on and barrel socks. There was a third guy who was on it, but I only saw him once and he vanished. I asked one of the ref's to get chrono'd and he had no idea what I meant and he did not know much about paintball guns. I had to explain what I was talking about. After all of that, it never happened.
