Directions to the Field:
Just a short distance east of I-4 at the Downtown Disney exit then a little ways down Poinciana. Look for inflatables by the road.
First, let me say it is my privilege to review this field first. I played this same field 2 years earlier, under different owners, and it has changed for the better. The owners are great, and had remembered corresponding with me via e-mail the week before. The entire staff was very personable. I didn't need any assistance with my marker or anything, but all staff seemed knowledgable and willing to help any way they could. I believe this was their first scenario, and I believe they were expecting much bigger crowds. I asked if they had done advertising or posted invitations anywhere, but only got a vague, yes. Because it was their first scenario, things did seem a little disorganized. When the game was supposed to begin I went to receive my team assignment and got in line with a few other players. The staff handed out pods with maps, water vouchers, player cards and a dog tag with your teams corresponding color on it. Problem was, there was no where to put them because we were all set to begin. ( It was a nice bonus,but would have been nice to have before the game started ) There were pods littering the base when I got there, so I added mine to the pile. The game itself went well. There were some good objectives, and everyone played well. I didn't see alot of mis-behavior, like I've seen at other fields. The event was marred by one unfortunate incident. I was told second-hand, that a female player had been overshot and injured. The player responsible was found to have a high chrono. speed and he lowered it. They then discovered most of the players hadn't been chrono'd. at all. I know I wasn't. I had thought they were going to do it at the insertion sites, but they didn't. There was no clear area pointed out to do so, and I was told there was some mis-communication between ref's. about who was responsible for checking players. This caused things to stop for about 45 mins. They then said they were going to check everyone at their respective bases. By the time I refilled and got to the base the ref with the chrono. had left. I asked about getting chrono'd., but the base ref. didn't seem concerned and told me where he thought the other ref had gone. Well, I wasn't going after him, so I never got chrono'd..The final battle was short lived. The re-insertion rules got mixed up between ref's. and my team ended up with most of us pinned down at the re-insert site being told different rules from what we had been told originally. Considering it was there first scenario, I thought things went very well. The field itself is very lush and alot of fun to play on. I would definitely recommend it, and I plan to return. Field only paint seems to be the norm. now, and registration fees were average. Plan to pay for air also, and taxes. I've never payed tax before, anywhere, only a flat rate, but they do charge tax. Try this field though. It's really good. I haven't played there on a regular day, so I can't say what they are normally like. The regulars seem to be very loyal and were alot of fun to play with.
