The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of Field Use:
Less than a month
March 21st, 2010
More than 5 years
Other Fields in the Area:
Pretty much every field within an hour and a half of the dfw area.
Directions to the Field:
I gave this field a 2 instead of a one because the doors opened and there were places you could shoot paintballs. Other than that is was the worste experience I have ever had playing paintball and I have played a lot of paintball.
Price: 3/10 (would be a 1 if it wasn't indoor) Ungodly expensive, sure entry is 20$ but with a case of paint and tax it's like 90$ a person. You must shoot their over priced paint because it's indoor which I expected, and I knew what it cost before I went. It was raining so I paid it thinking it could be worth it.
Fields: 1/10 The 'main' field is tiny good for maybe 3 v 3. It was busy because it rained and they were running like 20+ people on it. If you know what a 'can' is picture one layed on it's side with 4 people stacked behind it. Thats what your going to be playing.
Not very clean (greasyt paint residue left on everything) the turf was so slick it was like running on greased up marbles. I don't think they clean the bunkers very well either.
Refs: -1/10 Worste refs ever. I don't expect much from a walk on ref. I don't expect them to paint check every time someone yells that they shot everyone on the field at once. Maybe a check or two a game if that, it's not a tourny who cares. A walk on refs job is to make sure no one dies, and I don't think they even could meet this requirement.
They don't care at all. They didn't make anyone chrono. I did, and I think I was about the only one shooting the 260 we were suppose to be at on this tiny field. They let people use retardedly obvious ramping, some people were using like psp/nxl uncapped.... This really doesn't bug me, I can still shoot them and they just waste all their paint. I saw a lot of people get over shot pretty bad, the refs did nothing.
So get ready to bleed and then have a ref shrug at you if you aren't good enough to avoid getting shot all day. Which brings me to my next point.
Players: -5/10 Normaly even if the res suck you can expect some level of decency from the other players, no one attempted to follow the rules.
If your looking for any sort of competition don't go here. The only reason the 'good' players can stay in for more than 30 seconds is they cheat constantly and blatantly and the refs don't do anything. After you gog them like 10 times they might go out. It doesn't really matter though because they will probably never hit you if you have any level of skill.
Over all this place is god aweful. Get ready to be shot will 300+ fps on a 260fps field. If the horrible players/ 10 year olds with rich parents can even hit you. Then when your on the ground with a concussion the refs with probably be too lazy to call you an ambulance.

Dispute: This review is highly inaccurate, and actually false.
Firstly, the price of the field is pretty much average all across the board. $20 for entry/air, $65 for a case of paint. Paint prices have been increased for all fields, so there's not really much to compare to.
The field. The "main field" is actually almost NPPL regulation size. Super 7 NPPL regulation = 180 x 100. Main field = 150x90. So a 3 yard difference on each side means they have to cut it down to "3 v. 3"?
The refs. Now, every time I've been there, which is quite a bit, they have always chronographed players, and it's actually been made a big deal of. I don't think anyone has played with a gun over 285fps without anyone knowing anything about it. As far as ramping goes, there is a sign RIGHT NEXT to the door that lead to the field that specifically says "Semi Capped - 15bps, Ramping capped - 10bps". It's always been enforced as well.
Players. I'm not even going to comment. You're going to rate the players a -5/10 which has nothing to do with how the field is ran? This is a personal attack on your part.
Overall, your review is skewed beyond all belief in a negative direction with poorly laid out facts. I think next time you have a complaint like this, just try talking to the management at the counter. They've always helped me out, and I'm sure they'll do the same for you.
(By the way, I know of three employees on staff that are CPR/Professional Rescuer certified.)
