Review: I was getting tired of the horrible fields and reffing at Hollywood Sports Park so I tried out this field. Here are my observations and comments:

The good:
Great referees and a pretty good base of players who come by. The refs are pretty cool, good on safety and actually talk to you and give you some pointers. The aren't cocky and arrogant and they do a really thorough job to make sure everyone is having fun. They seemed to know quite a few people who were playing the day I went so I guess they have a really good group of people who frequent the field.

Also, most of the people playing were cool and easy going. Not too many cheaters, but you get a few now and then. Everyone is there to paintball so it's really friendly.

The owners of the field (the people working the concessions etc) seemed pretty nice and were good on making sure people weren't shooting in the parking lot. They read you the rules once at orientation and expect you to follow them, so you don't get an earful of the rules before each game.

They have a four different fields: one huge field named Vietnam, 2 smaller fields that are cool, and then one speedball field that has haystacks and giant spools. All around, it was a pretty good mix.

The bad:
The field is located in Sunland so it's kind of out of the way of "civilization." Not hard to get to, but they don't have real bathrooms and there are a bunch of rocks everywhere. The fields were in pretty good shape but you have to realize it's more woodsball-oriented.

The other thing is that the place is very minimalist. The shooting range is actually just a little offshoot from the main path where they have two chronographs set up. There isn't much in the way of resting areas or cover, save for a few benches and a patio. Overall though, it wasn't too bad.

Of course, the prices for the food and snacks were crazy. Bring your own. 15 bucks for a pizza just ain't right.

Really nice field overall and really good people to play with. Price for admission was $20 +$10 for air. It's BYOP but they sell paint also. They have 4500 PSI fills, but it never filled mine past 3500, but not a big deal.

I think you'll really like this paintball field. Everyone who works there is just really cool and they want to make sure you have a fun day. Here's a quick example: I'm pretty short on experience, having only played about five times over the course of six months. But I was playing with the pros on the Haystack field (quasi-speedball) and we were getting owned pretty bad. The ref told us we could go to a beginner's field and that we didn't have to stay, but we stayed anyways since it was really good practice. The refs even gave us tips on communicating and how we should play as a team.

You won't get that at Hollywood Sports.
