Review: This place is ok for walk ons but for the more experienced players, it can be a drag.

The refs are not motivated to do their jobs. They do get the job done but they usually bicker like the teenagers that they are. They need to be more professional. They also need to pay attention to player hits and be more available for paint checks. Sometimes they'll just blow it off. They also cater to the private games a lot more than walk ons for fields. You can just be waiting in the hot weather in line and a private game will just keep playing game after game on the same field; not letting anyone else on until that group had their fill. The walk ons, however, only get 2 games per field and then have to leave for the next group. Very frustrating when you're in line for an hour for a field.

The fields themselves are pretty cool but the featured fields are not maintained very well. Bedlam can be outright dangerous with all the paint on the concrete sidewalks. People were slipping and taking bad spills, including myself causing deep cuts and scrapes. I'd rather put up with water on the concrete than paintball oil.

The prices are ridiculous at this place. $90 for a case of marballizers. That's almost 80% markup. And they charge you for admission on top of that. If you enter the park, buy paint and food only, you can spend almost $120 in a single day. That's expensive! And that doesn't even count rental fees if you don't have your own equipment. If they lowered their paint prices by $20, it would be worth putting up with everything else but $90 is just a ripoff.

They use Marballizers as the field paint, which is pretty good stuff. However, I don't think they store them correctly. I have a feeling they are just keeping the boxes in a room someplace that isn't climate controlled. The sizes vary quite a lot more than the retail version you can get. Their balls were a little on the oily side, too. Marbs tend to be oily in nature anyway but these could almost coat your barrels they had so much and there were no broken balls in anyone's bags. But the oil was enough to cause everyone to have problems that day.

They really need to offer better food at the concession stand. The type of food they offer is junk food and will make you sick on a hot summer day. They need something that hydrates better and sits in your stomach better. Pizza, chips, candy, and hot dogs are not the way to go, regardless if the little kiddies want them.

People kept having problems at the fill stations because of lack of maintenance. The self-fills for nitrogen sure is nice but half of them don't work properly. It would be nice if they had 4500 fill stations as well. It would mean fewer people filling up as often.

The proshop is pretty nice. They don't have the biggest selection but enough to get the job done. Also the staff is helpful and friendly.

Overall, not a bad place to go to once in a while but definitely not my favorite spot.
