Vicious Tactics - Good fun, but not as professional, field layouts were not as good, BYOP
Operation Paintball - Decent but overpriced (due to paint price) for the quality. Fields were kind of dull
Fox Paintball - Good field layouts, BYOP, the quality of reffing and game play varies greatly every time I've gone. Usually massive groups playing open games.
CPX - Very expensive (Due to paint price), great fields.

Google maps gets it right.
Iím excited to have the first review on this place. They opened up just last month I think. Iím going to be reserved since Iíve only been here once, but if I have the same experience next time that I had this last weekend I think Iíve found my new favorite place to play paintball.
There is one particular event that I think spells out what this place is about to me. I walked in get admission and some paint. Turns out that they didnít have their credit card machine hooked up; cash only. I only have 60 on me, needed 80. Looks like Iím going to need to hop back in the car and go find and ATM right? (This did happen at another location I was at btw, guess I didnít learn my lesson) ďPut your name and phone down on this list, weíll call it an IOU.Ē I was shocked. I had just walked in here, this guy didnít know me, didnít know if I was going to come back and pay him. I knew right there I was going to love this place.
Up until this point I thought you had it one of two ways. You get a very professionally run field where they donít care who you are or what youíre paying and you play by their rules, or you get a home run place where the owner might be cool, but it misses the quality of that professional field. You feel like youíre in a back yard basically. PAP has the best of both worlds. I only hope that they can keep it up as they will certainly be growing and fast. Get out to this place before its overrun.
The staff; I loved these guys. They hung out with us and joked around the whole time. Made sure we were playing as many games as we could handle, playing the way we wanted to play and providing some cool game scenarios and tips.
The group of guys I play with are all new to this. We love it, but weíre not excellent players by any stretch. Still, I hate being looked down upon by paintball ďveteransĒ. Iím sure we looked ridiculous to these guys at times, poor strategy, sticking out heads out to get shot off, but I never once felt like these guys were judging us. They loved paintball, plain and simple, and if you like paintball youíre one of theirs.
Criticisms? Admission price is excellent. Paint is very reasonably priced, but I would like to see a little more selection. I like my premium paint and Iím willing to pay for it. I would even be willing to pay them a little extra per case to bring the paint I want to the field.
The fields they had were all great and theyíre expanding. I would like to see some of my favorite types from CPX and Fox show up: More urban environments.
Put this high on your list of fields to visit. You will not be disappointed.
