Review: Overall, I would say this is the best paintball field I have ever been to.

Pros:
- Huge variety of fields, setups, game types, and scenarios.
- High quality woodsball and cool urban settings. Apparently there are speedball and indoor fields as well, but we never got to play on them.
- Incredibly kind and knowlegable staff.
- Distribution of groups based roughly on experience and gun ownership (if walk-on).
- Nice, relaxed feel. Staging area is comfortable, seats a ton of people, and is close to everything you might need.
- Free use of BBQ's for grillin' up some burgers or steak for lunch!

Cons:
- PAINT. If using a cyclone feed, be sure to have squishy paddles! Even my backup Spyder gravity fed marker chopped a ball.
- Weird that we only played each field once. For example: we played as defenders, but not attackers...?
- Only open till 5pm on most days. I could have played till it was dark!


Price: standard for Ontario. $10 for owners, $10 per 100 rounds, etc...

Fields: I'll start with the negative and get it out of the way. The wooded areas *could* be thinned of trees a bit more. I found it fine, but with the sheer size of some areas, long range kills become impossible without clipping a tree.
Otherwise, the fields are fantastic. Big, open wooded areas for woodsball, and close quarters for urban settings. Well designed smaller fields with plenty of cover incorporating many different sizes and materials.

Paint: WORST aspect of the entire field. I shoot an X7 with no significant performance enhancing modifications other than a J&J 14", and my girlfriend shoots a stock A-5. Our cyclone feeds turned to blenders after the first game. Without exaggeration, my 3rd shot was a ball break, and it only got worse after that.

There were two distinct brands being used while I was there; "premium" paint in cases of 2000 (horrible quality), or Draxxus field paint in quantities of 500 (decent to good quality). Unbeknownst to me, I bought the case of 2000 figuring that I'd have some fun and waste paint. Worst decision of the day. The staff was excellent and they changed what "premium" paint I had left for the Draxxus, but if you visit, go for the Draxxus right off the bat.

Staff: very knowlegable, kind, and helpful. I was playing with a few friends who had never played before, and seeing as I am a gun owner, the head ref asked me if I would like to move to the gun owners group to help even things out. He was very understanding that I wanted to play with my friends who were inexperienced. His only caveat was that I "go easy" on the other team; luckily I didn't need to, the teams were already well balanced.

Players: same as any other field, really. Met some very nice people. Some guys out there looked a little cocky with their hyper-expensive equipment, but they are easily avoided. In comparison to Sgt. Splatters, I found Wasaga Paintball to have a MUCH more friendly and relaxed atmosphere. People mingled together; players with players, with refs, staff, it was a sweet time.

Facilities and food: very good in regards to both. Facilities were clean and comfortable. Food was well priced and delicious.

So far, this is like the Cedar Point of paintball. Once you go here, all the other places just don't seem as good anymore.
