Review:
OVERALL= A
The Siege doesn't look like much when you first pull up to it, but the staff, players and some great indoor and outdoor courses make this my new favorite paintball park in Southeastern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois. I apologize for being long winded in advance, but I hope my information helps you out.

STAFF AND PLANNING= A+
I used to be an avid paintballer in the early and mid-90's but had played only once (BFG) in nearly 10 years. So when it came time to plan my brother-in-law's bachelor party, I figured it was the perfect time to get back into it. With less than a week to plan it I called around to nearly a dozen fields and they all either didn't call back, rubbed me the wrong way or didn't have room for a private party of 10.

Then I called The Siege, and right away the guys there went out of their way to make it a great experience. When we arrived the staff had everything laid out and ready to go for us so that we were ready to start playing right at our 1 p.m. reservation without wasting any time (not so at BFG where we wasted the first 45 minutes of a three hour block waiting for equipment and our ref).

The entire staff was fun and courteous and showed us a great time. They were very flexible and worked with us, providing pointers and tips to the newbies in our group to help them pick up the game.

OUTDOOR FIELDS=A
The siege has 5 outdoor fields. When we were there the outdoor sup Air field was down, and we didn't try the woods field, but the three we did play on were a blast. The tires and pipes courses had a great mix of bunkers and were a lot of fun.

Then we made our way over to the Boat field (so named because there is an old boat perched up on pallets in the middle of the course). This field is much much larger than it look like at first. The course is made up of spool and pallet bunkers and of course the famous boat. Great firing lines. Suggestion if you play there...make sure to send a flyer to the boat on the break....makes a world of difference.

In addition to the fields, The Siege has a field trailer to cover air and paint needs without having to travel back up to the indoor fields.

INDOOR FIELDS= B
The Siege has two indoor fields both built inside an old barn. The upstairs is home to the sup-Air field and was a blast. We spent a lot of time in that one.

The second course is in the basement of the barn and is a street style course. We only played one game on this one, and although it has a great layout, is currently a waste of time. First off the floor is like a skating rink (wet and covered in paint). The bigger problem is that it is WAY to dark. In the entire layout there are maybe 3 light bulbs. If they could fix these two issues it could be a great course.

PRICES=A
Price for our private party was $30 per person (admission, mask, Tippmann 98 Marker, unlimited air and 500 rounds of paint). There was also a $15 per hour ref fee. Can't complain when you can play in a private party for less than $40 a person.

Paint prices were very reasonable too. Like most fields, you have to use their paint, but unlike most, The Siege doesn't gouge the crap out of you for it. I think a case was $35-40 compared to $70 at BFG.

PLAYERS=A+
When we first arrived I was a bit concerned because the place was packed with teenage players, which has been a problem at other fields I have played at. But the kids there were awsome, they joked around with us old guys. When we spotted a kid with a full out tactical replica of a SWAT AR15, he saw us looking at walked over to talk to us and let us check out his setup.

On our way down to the outdoor fields, we hit a muddy puddle in our truck, spraying a group that was walking down. They easily could have yelled or peppered us with paintballs, but instead when we stopped to apologize, they were laughing and having a good time with it.

The atmosphere at this place is great.
