23BPS (off the Loop 101 and McDowell)
Cowtown Paintball (Carefree Highway)
Directions to the Field:
Take the Loop 101 to 35th.
Take 35th to Pinnacle Peak.
Go down Pinnacle Peak until you reach Wet 'n Wild (the waterpark) on your left, and turn towards Wet 'n Wild, as if you were going there.
Go past the Wet 'n Wild entrance and take the first right main street. You'll pass a rodeo place on your right, then take another right where the sign for Fort Adobe Complex is. Just follow that through the gate and you're there.
Fort Adobe Complex is a combination of both the speed style and rec style of play.
Where 23BPS is more speedball oriented, and Cowtown is more rec oriented, Fort Adobe caters to both styles of play.
They have a neatly built rec field that is suitable for any style of play from 'Defend the Fort' to just a regular elimination game.
The speedball fields, as well, are usually always set up, and change up every time, though they're sometimes built for specific styles, like 3-man, 5-man, or 7-man.
The turf, a replacement for grass, is great to slide on, but when the temperature starts going up, it gets hot to stand on, even with thick boots.
The air compressor is set up with 2 stations. One for 3000psi, and the other for 4500psi, and they both fill up to what they're said to, every time.
The portapotties are quite possibly the best ever in the state of Arizona. Air-conditioned and clean.
The staging areas, as well, are incredibly clean and shaded.
The downside is there's no food vendors or food sold at the field, something that would help it's revenue stream, but ordering pizza and getting a discount with it is a plus.
For those that find the $25 entry fee steep, all you have to do is buy a case of paint from Arizona Paintball Depot, and you get a $5 off coupon with the case. A great way to make sales, and a great way to save money.
