Period of
Field Use:
2 years
Last There: April 20th, 2008
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Thunderbay-(closed) had more fields but the refs cheated

Florida Paintball-(Under new name and management since 06) only two fields to play on when I used to play there.

American Paintball-(been closed for years) this field was one large indoor airball field. It was nasty on the field and extremely unsafe in the rest area.

Gator- Only played scenario games here
Directions
to the Field:
There are good directions on the field site
Review: I started playing here regularly after Thunderbay closed down in 06. I played a couple times before then but I was not impressed and it was a drive compared to my regular stomping ground. In the past two years I have seen a lot of field changes in bunkers and playabilty of fields.

Safety- The safety is top notch. Regular players and refs do their best to keep it this way. Only improvement I can see is small net repair. 9/10

Fields- A hyperball (plus an extension for a bigger game), an airball, two woods fields, and a Castle for attack and defend games. The only field that I have not seen dramatically change is the hyperball field. They change the field layouts every so often to spice things up. Only improvement I can think of is a new entrance(which is being planned) so people do not have to walk the path next to hyperball when a game is going on. 8.5/10

Hours- Good hours. I wish it was open longer in the summer. 10/10

Prices- Prices are standard compared to other places when I played them except we do not pay for air. Paint is cheap compared to some places. 9.5/10

Rules- Rules are enforced rather well. The are some wannabe speedball kids that come out and shoot hot markers but they are either caught or do not last long playing there. Regular players also help to enforce rules and things usually run smoothly. The only rule I hate there is Dead Man Walking rule. This is when a person walks the field with his marker down, making himself look out when he is not. He gets behind the other team and either surrenders someone or shoots them from behind.This is a standard used in scenario games on A LOT of fields. I do not like this rule period, especially in a recreational game. Lately, I have not seen anyone do this in awhile. 8.5/10

Services- Hmmmm, well what this mean? Tech services? Well there is usually someone there that can help out whether they work there or they are a regular.

Proshop- Well, they have this and that. Tanks, masks, markers (they can order I believe), accessories. 8/10

Staff- Great people. Tom can be a smartallek. 10/10

Refs- Refs do their job to the best of their abilities most of the time. They need more of them in my opinion but with the regular players and home teams, it is kept in order. When it to summer time, I have noticed markers start spiking. When this happens or when people say there are a few people shooting hot, they make people chrono again. Works out rather well. The only time I have seen kid refs on the field is when they are helping out an adult ref. They are mainly there to learn. 99% of the time, it is an adult ref on the field. 8/10

Players- Beginners, a few tournament, and scenario players. There is a big mix. Most of the people are woodsballers and scenario players. Most everyone is friendly. Only a few grumpy looking ones. They warm up after awhile. 9/10

Facilities- There are two portolets unlike mentioned in other reviews here. They are kept as clean as possible. Unfortunately there is no electricity or running water. 7.5/10

Food- They sell cold drinks and they make a pizza order for lunch. There is a convenient store less than five minutes away. 8/10

Since starting to play here I have seen a lot of improvements to the field of play. Right now, they are in the middle of making new ones. With these changes it keeps the fields from getting boring and monotonous.
