Review: I've taken the time to read through some of the other fields reviews, along with this one for Jungle Games and found many very entertaining. I enjoy the sport and will tell it how it is, and give the good and bad for those wanting to go. All though I haven't visited many fields, the paintball experience is what you make out of it.. so go out and have FUN :)

I've had the opportuninity to visit Jungle_Games years ago and I actually enjoyed the field setup better back around '93. It's changed quite a bit and now has 3 fields, 2 of which are mainly used on the weekends. I've been there for the past 4 weeks or so and I've had fun, but can see where some would share some negative feedback. I'll start with the positives first:

Positives:
If you live in the area, it's convenient and does have a mix of newbies and experienced players. The groups are usually divided up evenly and when a game is over the next will usually start up fairly quickly within 5-10 minutes. If you like an open speedball course, they have it made up of wooden obsticles, old planes, trucks, etc.. and the other field is more woods. They mostly play on the open speedball course but this past Saturday they played a few on the woods course which was fun and a nice change of pace. They do sell balls ($50 for a case of cheep paint, I would go to the surplus store 5 min down the road and buy better paint for the same price), order pizza for people if they want to purchase some, and the equipment they rent looks to be semi-automatic tipmans which aren't in the best shape but I used to rent pump guns way back when so giving people the option to rent semi automatics is nice regardless. The staff is friendly and they are nice to talk to. The owner kinda does his own thing, you dont hear much from him but I havent seen him be rude to anyone or heard of it.

Negatives:
Being limited to only 2 fields can get a bit boring, especially if they stay primarily on the speedball course. The refs years back were more on top of things. The ones now are nice, but there are a lot of wipes. We overheard a group of younger kids bragging about doing this which does take away from the fun of the game. Chrono on the guns aren't enforced. I've witness "HOT" guns while playing, and even though this doesn't bother me it does bother some and could see this being a potential safety issue with some of the younger or inexperienced players.

I like to have fun when there. So the experience level, hot weapons, or out numbers doesn't effect me much. If it does you, this may be something you would like to bring up prior to the match/game beginning.

Overall rating:
The field has a good mix of beginners and experienced, but would agree with some others and you do find more beginners there renting the equipment, etc.. The price for play is average ($25 all day and air), and the price for balls could come down but if you buy them prior to arriving you will be ok there. If you're wanting to go out and shoot around it's a good place, but if you have any questions about guns being chrono or field wipes, etc.. I would bring them up to the staff before the games begin and ask about their enforcements because people do tend to complain but they do it away from the staff from what I've seen.
