Review: I will start this as positive. Prices are resonable, proshop is decent, and everyone is pretty nice. And if your a woodsballer, this is probably the best in the tampabay area. Vietnam village is great, the hyperball is cool, and the trailers there allow many scenarios. We played a swat / atk/defend game that was awesome. The compressed air i think actually damaged my 2 carbon tanks. as i have a fairly new 4500 that it wouldnt get past 3300 the first time and upon going back later, got to 4000 but then mysteriously caused the stem to start leaking. My 3000 psi tank went to 3k on the first try but also began leaking.

Ok the i am pissed negative.. I really have to question the referees at this place, and while they tried to explain their position i sure have to heavily disagree. First issue my son and a fellow adult player tagged an opposing player who then was witnessed wiping. Not a ref to be found to do something about it, and when brought up to the refs they said it was too late, so i told owner and he promptly told the refs to keep an eye out. So i later found some fellow air force people who confirmed that they saw this same kid wiping paint all day.

Second issue, i got called out on what i know was blind fire shot i protested. Ref came to me after the game to fully explain what "blind fire" is, and how he was standing there and saw exactly how the person was holding there gun and everything. I have played this game since 1992 so i am all to certain what blind fire is. I said to the ref why would i expect you to do anything since he didn't do anything with the person wiping paint. Of course because my son was 12 and the "wiper" was 17+ he wanted more "witnesses" and for me to get the proof. Cant prove it once he wiped it off, other than i told him that he was going against 3 other adults, of which 2 were active military members who also witnessed him.

These 2 incidences, i can only attribute to the fact that those 2 ppl were locals and we of course were not.

Now my son is almost 12 and i am trying to teach him to play fair, but these were 2 pretty blatant issues the refs basically refused to look at. I want to go back because i love the field but i just dont know. Basically i have found that the fields geared more towards speedball have way better refs, while the woodsball places have horrible refing.. see my feedback on jungle games..
