Review: The staff is great, they try to change things around so no one gets bored. The self serve air is a great setup also, you can refill on your own tank without waiting for a staff member to do it.

This is a county owned facility, managed by the recreation department. The bathrooms need some serious attention, cleaning, painting, turn the water on in the sinks, put in some paper towels.

Safety: The park has a chronograph that they use upon request to help you set your marker. The problem is, no one is "required" to chronograph their marker before playing, it's on an honor system. Well, there are lots of players out there that have their own marker and don't have a clue what fps means and there are some players out there that just want to hurt people. I don't mind getting shot or hurt if everyone is playing by the rules, thats life and part of the game. You are going to get hurt eventually. My problem is when there is a lack of control (chronographing) or intentionally high fps setting. The last two times I played I left there bleeding and had several bruises that lasted 3 weeks. No, I'm not whining, I know what 290 fps feels like and what it will do to the body and I'm OK with it, heck I like it and I can take the pain. If an 8 year old takes one of those shots he will never want to play again. Unfortunately, I see alot of kids leave the field crying and they will never play paintball again. They are the future paintballers, if you turn them against the sport you will lose business.

My suggestion: Set up a chronograph station and require every player to follow the rules, no exceptions. If someone violates the rules by turning the marker up after chronographing, send them home. It won't take long before everyone will abide by the rules. and when every player leaves at the end of the day they will be pumped up and ready to come back next week.
