#1 Paintball - Willowchase
#1 Paintball - Grant Rd Park
Urban War Zone
In short, this field is one of the BEST for small kids up to 16. And it is WORST for adults, unless you accompany your children.
Why? Because there is too much many safety restrictions that are a god must-have for kids but a nonesence for adults with common sence.
Example? All markers have to be winded down to less than 260fps (when 300fps tops is the worldwide standard). "Field-only paint" rule is heavily enforced. I have tried to mix my premium paint with the field cheepos. And they did not let me in because of that. The paint prices are too high. $23 for 500 round. But they take advantage of us like that at most places, unless it is a BYOP (Bring Your Own Paint).
So adults - no. Kids - a definite yes.
SAFETY: Very strict on safety, 260 fps rule, instructions for everyone with emphasis on mask at all times, etc etc. Kids are being watched to make sure they don't hurt themself and others. Markers are ought to be carried with barrels up, which is ridiculous for me as an adult but whatever - as long as it keeps children safe.
FIELDS: A huge plot of land of 200 x 600 feet. A total of around 6 fields, which are mostly woods except for one for speedball.
FIELD HOURS: Actual start and gather-up time is around 11am on Saturday and Sunday.
PRICES: High prices. OK for first time, but not good for frequent players. Not friendly for BYOP and owned markers. Only good for occasional games with children.
RULES: Most games are total elimination. Strictly enforced on safety.
STAFF: The staff is well trained and professional.
REFS: The refs are OK.
PLAYERS: about 80% of the players are playing for their first or second time.
80% of the players are 6-14 years old.
the remaining 20% are their parents (LOL)
FACILITIES: The club has a very good recreational area with nice chairs, wind chimes and tables. It looks more like a meditation area at some point. :)
I will repeat, that this field is one of the BEST for small kids up to 16. And it is WORST for adults, unless you accompany your children.
