Review: Let's start with the fields, in the order I've played them in.

The woods course is damn fine for a woods player like myself. The course is pretty narrow, so fast action is pretty much guar-ron-teed. This might upset the sniper crowd, but there's not enough time for that anyway. Fox-holes are well-dug but also put in weird positions, so as not to give them too many advantages. A well-balanced and rockin' field to play.

The Speedball course is also fun as hell. I found that this course is a bit bigger that what I've seen in the past, but it was set up for newbie play, which made it instant fun for the experienced guys. The learning curve for the course is outstanding and teaches players quickly to manipulate cover to their advantage. Many of the bunkers are made out of weird shapes and thus forces the players to get creative. The field is also a near mirror, the two ends being nearly the same set-up. Another well-balanced and fun field.

The Town and River Course is my personal favorite. The Town is constantly being improved upon, and it makes it more and more fun. A bus situated in the off-center of the town is a death-wish for players who get caught in it, but if used wisely could create a choke point. The only real minus of this field is the brush areas behind the town. I can remember one game in which three of the other team's players disappeared into the brush and at the end of the game, would not move, so they ended up taking the elation from the victory when we lost two guys at the end marking them. Oh well, one can't expect PERFECT fields.

On to the shop. Rental fees are better than most places I've been to, but there is a scam afoot when it comes to renting or bringing your own marker. It costs nearly as much to field your own marker as it does to rent all of your gear. I find that it is probably less expensive in the long run to simply rent their gear and keep the wear and tear from affecting your own gear. What's an extra two bucks? Paint is where they make their killing. Paint is the most expensive I've ever seen at a field, and they won't let you use your own paint! They would sooner see your escorted off-base than to let you use your own paint. They were rather rude about checking too; it could have been done nicer. Upgrading your rental goggles to thermals is advisable, but only if you can move fast. All thermal goggles are bright, hot Pink. Still, if you can see, what's masculinity got to do with it? The Staff are very stern about following the set safety rules, and it's understandable. Anyone who complains about safety rules should get their jollies elsewhere. Other than that, the reffing is excellent, I've never witnessed refs cheating for players, but then I haven't played there that frequently.

Overall, when I leave Danger Zone, I am very satisfied with my money spent and my time used. I would recommend this park to anyone who doesn't mind paying a few extra buck for a superior experience.
