Review: They are open 7 days a week and the first game starts about 9 am. There is a pretty good line to sing up and get gear (if you need) so come a little early.

The prices are pretty good if your self equiped ($20).

They do have a deal where if you bring your own paint you have to pay ($15). I don't know how much they check on this. They sell a box of 2,000 paintballs for $40, but I wouldn't recommend it. We used their paintballs twice. The first time they seemed ok. This last time they were total garbage. Reading reviews on this site I know that everyone has their opinions and favorites, and there really isn't any actual testing of anything. The house balls we used this last weekend however were really bad. My Tippman A5 kept jamming up on the balls when it was feeding them and left me exposed with a jammed gun a few times. My idea of fun is not taking my gun apart while people are shooting at me. When I would pull the paintballs out they looked like they were half full with paint. This is what caused the jams I'm sure.

Lastly the staff is very helpful and the tech is very good. As for safety I haven't seen them ever require chrono checks of anyone, but do have them available at the front and in the field for those who want their guns to be legal.
The games are 30 min long and about every 30 min or so. The bad part is that by the time you get back to the parking lot, they are calling for the new game again, and it's a pretty good walk back. Also they move you to different areas and have the teams swtich sides. This is nice, but it would be a lot nicer if they had decent signs so you could tell where your going. There are game trails all over the place and you can wander all over looking for the starting base if you don't happen to follow people that know where they are going.

The filed itself is pretty nice. Some green places, other with bare trees, and there are also bunkers here and there to hide behind. The area is pretty big so you have a lot of area to move around without everyone watching you.

The paintball field sponsers thier own team (the SF Hornets). After lunch they have whatever Hornets are there play you in what they call Beeswax. It's not bad as you play with people you have been playing against and will be playing against the rest of the day. Some of the Hornets cheat however. I read the reviews of them and the beeswax game before we went to the field and thought that people were just being poor sports. However after my daughter saw someone wipe and three months later someone I didn't know said that he saw the same guy wipe I'm more convinced. People were talking about how they would hit a Hornet up close, then the Hornet would retreat, and they would see them later during the game playing.

I shot at three people. After they got me and I was out as I was walking by two of them the guy said that I didn't hit him, and I could check. I didn't say anything like that and had to wonder why he would just blurt that out. The other guy who I shot at and was pretty sure I hit said the same thing. Funny thing was that there was one of my exploded paintballs still on his bare neck and paint around it. How do you not feel a throat shot? I showed him and he went off the field with me. I have to say that I was pretty disappointed.

Overall it's a good place and the prices are low enough that we will keep going out. I just may just have to wipe myself when we play beeswax just to keep things fair. Ok, I won't, I don't cheat, but it's a thought.
