Directions
to the Field:
Look on the site.
Review: Safety - Generally pretty adamant, there have been a few times that I haven't run my gun by the refs, but as long as you are near 250 fps they really don't care. Field is a bit of a mess but they have gotten better with cleaning it. Bring an old pair of shoes though and be prepared to slip a bit.

Fields - There is an indoor field and I believe they have put in an outdoor field, but I hve yet to see it or play on it, as it is only open on weekends and the prices are pretty brutal then. The indoor field in nice, they have cleaned it up a lot from what it used to be. They have made it into a better adapted speedball field. They have two sniper towers and a back building, used for many of the scenario games. It is still slippery though, and again I would recommend an old pair of shoes.

Hours - On the site, weeknights and weekends.

Prices - Not bad on weeknights, roughy 40 bucks should cover your admission and paint if you own, maybe 50 if you rent. BYOP on weekdays too, which is nice. However, weekends are awful. Admission is halved, but paint prices skyrocket. I believe it was 200 bucks a case when I went, thank god i smuggled some in. They will kick you out if you bring your own on weekends though, so avoid that like the plague.

Rules - Standard. They do have a lot of different and fun game types though.

Refs - Very friendly and funny refs. Easy to get along with, but they do their jobs as well.

Staff - Their one downside. The two managers are polar opposites. One is very nice and helpful, while the other is in it for the money and nothing else. Personal experience: Myself and seven others were refused entry because our waivers were not initialed in a certain place. Everything was signed and we even offered to make the proper phone calls to confirm, yet they wouldnt let us in. However, a trip to "Grandma's House," aka forging signatures and that problem was solved. However, I once booked a party their on a weekday and specifically asked and was told that I could bring my own paint. Upon arrival with twenty others this manager refused to admit us, saying that we would have been told we couldn't bring our own. He then threatened to throw us out and keep our 300 dollar deposit. It wasn't a pleasent experience.

Players - Good group of guys who go there. Almost got in a fight once but it was a once in a lifetime thing.

Food - Candy and energy drinks, thats about it.

Proshop - they have a Canadian Paintball outlet. Overpriced and unhelpful generally.

Overall - 7 simply because the field could be better, and the weekend prices/arrogant staff drag it down.
