Directions to the Field:
I came to the field thinking it was a Speedball field, which it was bassicly. I was very, VERY dissapointed in the field. A couple of reasons:
1. DANGEROUS!!! When I to go get a Co2 tank (left mine) I found them outside (It was 105 degrees out!) and later that day, the referee dropped one. When he was attaching one for a kid something blew out of the tank and hit me, made me bleed!!! He didn't make anyone wear a mask and the field had glass in it!
2. It smelled horrible, there was stagnid water everywere and it made me gag.
3. You have to buy there paint, even to use in your own gun!
4. No FPS tester, they have the limit (275) but they didn't test any! Most of the guns were going way to fast and broke my skin a couple of times.
I really hate this field, I wouldn't recomend you come here...
Dispute: First, this post is completely attacking the field for unknown reasons.
The field is located in Mesquite, Texas - which is easily accessible from many areas with a 15 minute drive. The field does not have air bunkers, but permanent bunkers such as stone buildings, oil barrels, and an old airplane.
After playing at most of the fields throughout the metroplex - I can attest that each of the fields have had their positive and definitely negative issues.
I would add that for the player who is advanced and or a hard core paintball fanatic, this is not the field of choice. However, it is convenient, it is open late with a lighted field and it can be reserved for private events.... so I would say if you fit that mold then it really depends on you.
But, if your a new player, a young player, or a family... this field by far is much more accommodating to you. You will find that the place is much more suited for a young player, a dad and son, or a whole family. The facility also offers much more than any of the fields around such as rock climbing, go karts, mini golf, arcade, food, and clean restrooms.
For just $16, get a two hour field pass, use of the paintball marker and safety mask, and 100 paintballs. Not a bad deal for a first time player, or just a fun time with a group of buddys.
