Safety: I didn't see anyone waving their markers around without barrel socks but neither did I see anyone/anything but a sign enforcing them.
Fields: I played the closest field to the staging area which includes many large spindles, 2-3 buildings with square holes cut in them, a downed plane (fuselage and cockpit were all I saw, no wings), some plastic pallets, and numerous hills to hide behind.
I also played at their Tires Field, where we played 2 rounds of what I might call siege. There were lots of tires of varying sizes and a few pipes next to them.
Hours of Operation:Saturday 9 A.M. to 5 P.M., Sunday 11 A.M. to 5 P.M.
Prices: I believe it was $25.00 for all day play including a rental of 1 marker, 1 mask and 100 paintballs. It came with a tank and a hopper, also a barrel sock. That came with all day air. Their price for paint was pretty steep though, they wanted $25.00 for 500 rounds... Kind of p*ssed me off
Services: They had a fridge containing different kinds of soft drinks and a working vending machine. There's also at least 1 restroom.
Staff: The guy behind the counter seemed kind of flustered, always busy but eh who can blame him. What confused me a bit was half staff was like 14 or 15 years old. Kind of weird imo.
Refs: I think their refs were friends with some of the players and were biased when it came to rules. We were specifically told while preparing to play a game of siege that players would be coming around to our left, which was some woody brush, to our front, which had several tire bunkers and wooden constructions for players to hide in/shoot from, and some more woody brush to our right. This meant , to me, that we were pretty much screwed if they pushed.
Another player and I decided, after failing to "defend the fort", that we would sneak around, through the woods to the left of the defenders and surprise them. Well, when we finally got into position and I shot the first player I saw, the ref nearest to him told my teammate and I that we were both out and we weren't allowed to go through the woods.
We were like wtf?? They told us we could just 15 minutes ago and there was even evidence of people going through the woods before, such as a crushed Dr. Pepper can and several paths leading through to the defenders' left flank.
We both just went back to our original side of the field and kept playing like we knew we should lol, that was a load of bs. That's pretty much my only complaint though.
Since this was my first time I went paintballing, I don't really know how it would compare to other fields.
I gave it a 9/10, my only 2 complainst being the refs were a bit biased, and their paint prices were varying from the amount you buy and pretty high. Good field, go check it out!
