The website has a good mab, but Lange Rd is small and easy to miss. Look for Lange Rd and the black No Limits sign between the Blind Children Center and Mcdonalds.
Review: I'm a long time pbreview reader, and this is my first review. Sorry if I ramble, but I want to put as much info in as possible and share my experiences. My friends and I started playing outdoor at Hell Survivors, then played a lot of indoor at Atomix, then didn't play for over a year. Recently we've gotten back in to paintball. Again we started at Hells, then found out Atomix was closed so went to Killer (until mall closed). Some players we met at Killer mentioned No Limits to us. Now No Limits is our favorite field.

The Facts:
Hours & Prices: There website explains everything, but let me provide some details. Gate opens at 10am. Games get started around 11 and go till 4pm. $25 Entry fee or $15 w/ purchase of field paint. Field paint is $35 for white box, $45 for Stinger, and $55 for XO V1. Better buy a case since a half case is not half price, more like 1 bag is half the price of a case. Even if 1 person pays for 2 people + a case of field paint, 1 of the entry fees is $25. They accept credit cards, but add a 4% transaction fee. Air is free.

Facilities: Picnic tables under a pavillion, 1 port-a-potty, 1 chrono station, 1 air station, and a trailer for registration.

My Impressions:
Hours & Prices: No Limits is the best "Bang for your Buck". $15 for a 5 hour session and a $35-$55 choice of field paint is awesome. I also like that they average more that 2 games per hour.

Facilities: Great, but Saturdays are a lot busier than Sundays. On Saturdays the pavillion is crowded, games organize slower, and the line to register and chrono gets long so the result is usually 11 games in 5 hrs. Less people on Sundays results in as much as 14 games in 5 hrs. I always bring my own food, drink, and insect repellant (important!), but they are also available at their trailer. I think Gatorade is $2. I don't think there is a proshop at the field, but many players there are willing to help if you're having gun problems. You're better off getting parts you need at Action Paintball (their store in Livonia) before going to the field.

Fields: 6 great fields with my favorites being hyperball (drainage tube bunkers), The Hill (out flank opponents around a hill) and The Island (defend/capture a 2 story fort on an island w/ 2 bridges to it). Watch out for poison ivy, groundhog holes to twist ankles in, and the tall grass on the Urban field. With around 40 people on Saturdays, the fields are too small. Teams go out to the field and play 2 games before returning to the pavillion, so pack enough ammo and stay filled.

Refs & Rules: I've played there 4 times now, and like most places the number of refs and consistancy of rules could use improvement. On Saturdays, getting a paint check is difficult with 40 people and only 2-4 refs watching from the sidelines. Majority of the games finish without any disputes, but here are two notable experiences I've had with the refs and rules:

Shooting through cracks: On The Island the corners of the fort have a space about 2" wide that a player was shooting through. Many players complained that he can shoot us, but we can't shoot him. The ref agreed with us, but just yelled at the offending player from accross the bridge, and didn't approach the player or reinforce "no shooting through cracks" to the group later. Another time a different ref said shooting through the cracks on the Urban field was ok. They should block the spaces or explain the rule better.

Paint Check: Some fields say to stop firing and wait for a ref to check you or your opponent, but at No Limits they say to continue playing. This guy had a clear shot on my friend, but didn't shoot him because he called paint check. He was really mad when my friend shot him later. It just needs to be explained better during the orientation/safety talk or have more refs watching.

No Limits deserves a 9/10 rating since it just needs more refs and the ability to handle large groups. Overall the fields are fun, staff and players are friendly, and the prices are reasonable. I recommend this field to everyone and we will be going back a lot.

I can agree with you on the refs but like ya said all fields need that. I have been playing there for years on and off when i have time (and moeny) They have fixed the problem with the fort on the island where you can shoot through the cracks and now are takeing out smaller groups at a time to make it easyer to manage
