Review: To start off, WOW. I played here first for the first yesterday and was really impressed. I was worried if the players were going to be too agressive. Seeing I brought my nephew for the first time, who is 10 years old. We walked up, signed our waivers and proceeded towards the window to pay. We were greeted by the owner right away. (I think his name was Randy) He asked if we needed any rental gear which I declined seeing I brought some for my nephew. (But they have everything, guns,masks,chest protectors for rent). Seeing we got there a little early (8:30am, they don't open till 9am) I asked them when people started showing up, he said usually 9:00-9:30 possibly later. Which was no problem because I wanted to walk the field and show my nephew a few things. I asked the owner if I could walk the field, he said that was fine; as long as we had a mask on. Which to me shows they are very conerned about safety, even if no one was else was on field with a gun.

9 oclock rolls around and people start trickling in, and then BAM! 9:30-10ish everyone rushed it. We got air and proceeded chrono, which is 285FPS. Once everyone was close to ready, the ref did orientation (which explains the rules) Here are some rules I liked most, that other field don't have.

1. NO bunkering/close shooting.-They require a minimum of 20 feer OR more before you can shoot someone. I liked this rule seeing it was my nephews first time.

2. Gun hits don't can't- This rule is great for the new players, so they don't get out too fast. And are able to get the hang of it faster.

3. 285FPS(Feet Per Second)- Most field are 300FPS, but 15 FPS does make a difference on sting factor. The Ref also mentioned if anyone get caught shooting over 285 during play, they had to sit 3 games. This is done by a hand held chrono.

After orientation we got divided on teams, which were switched up during the day by the Ref to keep the teams fair. And started playing. Through out the day we played a bunch of different fields and games. Such as elimination, capture the flag etc. Around noon time they yell out to everyone if they wanted to order pizza. Which we did and it was like $8 for a large, and was really good pizza. They also had drinks for sale like water,powerade, and soda. Reasonanbly priced also, but you can also bring your own drinks and food if you want.

After 6 hours and lots of games we were finally wore out and packed up. As we started walking to the car is seemed like everyone who worked there said thanks for coming up, which is rare now a days haha. We also picked up punch cards, which are like those old subway punch cards. 5 entries and you get one free. And they punched it for that day too, so I only got 4 more to go!

All in all we had a blast, and now my nephew is hooked. It was awesome playing with people who were out there to have fun and be safe. (A lot of families playing together, which is cool)

I hope to be back soon.
