Top Gun Paintball. The field is wonderful and so are the people.
Review: I was incredibly disappointed with Northern Lights Paintball. I'd heard many good things about the field and the people alike, so when I went, I was pumped. The fields looked good (and they were decent to play on).

First thing the guys there said to my group was "Just so you guys know, we close at two today, because we have a practice." That's odd, I could've sworn that over the phone they told me we could play "until the paint runs out". But, whatever.

The ball prices were decent, decreasing in order of quantity. They were also willing to loan me a pair of coveralls, no charge. I thought "hey, that's cool." It wasn't. All their coveralls were wet. I moved on past that, because I wasn't exactly wearing good clothes, so it wasn't a big deal, albeit a little annoying.

Most fields have refs of some kind, if only to start and finish games, and keep an eye on the people using their field. There was one guy sitting at a picnic table watching the four ten year olds, and no one watching us. When the ten year olds were done, the guy left to go mow and/or do other stuff. We spent over three hours there completely unsupervised. On the other hand, when we did go to ask if we could stay past two, since they could only use one field at a time to practice on, and no one was watching us anyway, they did say yes.

All in all, the impression I got from Northern Lights Paintball was that they really didn't give a crap whether we were there or not. My group spent over $300 on paintballs, not to mention the field rental fee, and they did not care at all. It was downright unprofessional, and I will not be going back there.
