Review: I am in the military and have spent countless hours on a paintball field playing and training. This facility is refereed by local high school kids, which in itself is not a bad thing. My issue is that the local high school kids are biased to the regulars (kids that play every week) and the locals that obviously are out there a lot feel they run the place and do not practice etiquette. This creates an unsafe environment. I saw one local regular with a high end paintball gun bunker another kid that was completely turned away with a rental from 10 feet, firing 10 rounds in his side and his back and the young girl referee watching the action laughed and stated "Ha Ha, that wasn't right (name of kid)." Not a correction or penalty, but ha ha that was funny. A few games later I saw another of the local kids with a high end gun bunker two players yelling "Surrender" as you are supposed to inside 10 feet. The problem is that he then proceeded to unload several rounds into one players face, and several more into the back of the other player. This isn't proper etiquette or safe. One of those individuals became very upset, spoke with the management and left. I left soon after because I didnít feel the public play was safe at that point.
After witnessing this, I will be attending another facility.
To be fair, if you are planning a private party where only your guest will be playing on the fields with no regular local player involvement, you will probably be ok. The rental equipment was decent, and the prices were not bad. The facilities are decent and management and service staff were nice, but the execution of the public and private games by the referees has to be cleaned up before someone gets hurt.
