grimcath Saturday, September 27th, 2008
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Field Use:
3 years
Last There: June 26th, 2008
Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Flag Raiders, didn't like it very much, too much space between games, refs started shooting at me with a paintball gun, for no reason. When I asked him why he did it he said, No one was on the field and he was trying out a new gun he got. Of course he was lying, my friend witnessed it.
Directions
to the Field:
Google it. First link.
Review: Safety,
1.) Seen safer arenas, only since there is one ref they cannot find all the problems by them selves.
2.) Normal safety rules, such as: Mask not on in field, sit out a game, happens again sit out two, third time your done for the night. Also apples to barrel sleeves.
3.) Arena not kept the cleanest, possibility of slipping and falling, breaking your gun or hurting your self.
Prices,
1.) Half decent pricing, almost the same compared to Flag Raiders.
Food,
1.) Almost none existent, some drinks and a vending machine. Though, it is nice since it is down town so restaurants are only a 5-10 min walk there and back.
2.) Some people think they should work on this but it would only create a convenience more than anything, there are other options in the area.
Pro shop,
1.) Not sure about what I have been hearing but last time I was there they sold tanks, O-rings, Jerseys, Masks. No markers.
2.) Some word going around that they might introduce a larger, better equipped pro shop to compete with Flag Raiders.
Players,
1.) Best thing I love about this arena is on Fridays they have an age restriction, no more kids complaining about 200fps hurts to much.
2.) Having the age restriction allows the fps to be turned up, more breaks.
3.) Most people I have played with there are very nice, others are annoying little kids letting there parents handle everything. Member night I find are the best time to go, Auto-trigger allowed, so what, cheaper paint and older players out weights that I believe.
4.) A lot of people there are very nice, you would be surprised how many people you could ask to use their gun and they say, try it out!
Location,
1.) Very nice being downtown, easy to get to, easy to find good food in the area.
Refs,
1.) Most very reasonable, one game i played i hit the guy on the other team, it broke but he kept playing, I later complained to the ref and it came down to a duel between me and the guy, to determine who won the last game. Of course I won...>.>
2.) Make very fair decisions, though no ref will ever be or is perfect. People make mistakes, misjudgments but the refs decision is final.

Over all,
Nice arena, not bad pricing and very nice friendly workers. Though needs better equipped pro shop, and possibly more convenient food.

Dispute:
hmmm its odd.
Is your Review a subtle way to slam the Arena ???... cause your FACTS are bogus.

The field gets pressure washed 3 days a week and the speed ball court gets cleaned completely 2 days a week...balls cleared up and bunkers washed.

There is a FULL, Staffed Snack Bar upstairs with hot and cold food.
The snack bar is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
We advertise it LARGE.
It's staffed by the guys who run the FRAG ROOM internet gaming center for us.

This is advertised on a big display board directly over the Paint Counter.
You couldn't POSSIBLY have missed it.

I just went to the Paint Counter... yep. Sign is still there....
heres some of the items on the sign:

Chicken Pot Pie / Burritos / Lasagna / Quiche / Chili / Jumbo Muffins
Croissants / Coffee / Tea / Pop / Milk
