Average field, reasonable pricing. reffing was ok untill i was told i was ramping when i was not (fast fingers). they have sevral fields. speedball, woodsball-ctf and center flag. ok for small parties of newer players but vetrans of paintball would look down on this field. worth a try but dont go out of the way for it when better fields are only 20 min further.
PaintballActionGames.com is a TRUE woodsball feild. It is FAR FROM AVERAGE. If you got to their website they have video testimonials and one guy is ex military and said he's played all over the world and this is the best TRUE woodsball field he's played on.
I've been playing on it for 5 years. I've played all the other local fields. I've played with friends in the woods etc... I've played at Graveyard (Now Crims) and all the others.
When I want to play speedball, there are other places to play.
But for woodsball, this field hands down is the best.
Sure there are new players and kids that don't know jack about paintball, but you get that just about anywhere. It's a great chance to show them what we as seasoned players know, and be role models for newbies on how to respect the sport.
Veterans of the sport would NOT be bored or look down on these fields. I've had large groups of STRONG players show up and they either mix in with average players or keep to themselves and I've never heard any complain either way.
It's a laid back place that on a whole treats players with respect, is bigger on safety than most here realize and WILL improve on safety as they come here to this forum and read your posts.
As for you ramping.... Maybe you were not and you got tossed due to issues of ramping that took place there this past spring. I had one guy there that was a regular shooting ropes and I complained he was ramping. The refs checked him and cleared him to play. Others took exception to his semi-auto mode and placed their guns in various states of semi as well. Eventually a more heavy handed position was taken to cut back on the overkill of paint being shot in the woods and perhaps you were caught up in the crackdown.
In the end, everyone's fun was being considered, not just one or two people. As a business, a field owner has to consider that point and factor it into their decisions.
It comes down to choices based on desire. If you want to play woodsball, this place is great. Always a lot of people, great woods, good ref's and excellent atmosphere. A good time is in store for those that want a fun afternoon of woodsball.
If you want speedball, they have it but certainly nothing like Crims or professionally laid out air-bunker fields.
That is why they make chocolate and vanilla. Sometimes you want one, sometimes the other. If you want both, then I give PaintballActionGames.com the edge because you don't have to wait for games between games, more variety and at least there is some form of speeball there. At Crims or others, the woodsball feilds are not true woods and I don't know many people that find their woodsball fields enjoyable. They are VERY narrow, you can't flank you can do anything other than straight push upfield. It's like speedball under the cover of trees. I'm not taking anything away from Crims. I like that field and I play there too. But only when I want a steady diet of speedball and hard competition.
