Review: Safety
As always on all fields safety is paramount. If your screwing around, overshooting intentionally, ramping, full-auto in semi only games, Forgetting barrel covers, shooting outside of the game even on the field without Ref supervision gets you a one-strike warning. Second offense and you are tossed out. These guys are paid well enough to take their jobs seriously.

Fields
Clean FIELD (note Singularity), huge in comparison to the indoor courts on Long Island or the illegal court in LIC New York. Is kept relatively clean with the paint air-blown to the far ends of the fields, every 4-5 games, and then swept out at the end of the day. Walls are NOT cleaned daily including Air bunkers, only on Mondays. View Stations where spectators can watch are also cleaned every 4-5 Games, depending on how bad it gets. With a good pair of cleats you can run fairly well on the turf, yet still slick enough for long slides.

They only have One field setup at the moment, which is a full Speedball court. They cycle in games of best 2 out of 3 rounds rather quickly.

Hours of Operation
Closed Monday for Cleaning, except for Proshop.
Tuesdays through Friday are 5pm to 1am.
Sataurdays are 10am to 1am, although the Referee's will be there early, it depends on when the Owner with the Key and pass disengages the lock.
Sundays are 12pm - 6pm.

Prices
$20 Admission with Free Air, Compressed Air Only. All day, no limit. Not 6hrs, or 5hrs, or 3hrs, as long as the place is open, your playing.

$65 for a 2000ct case of paint, or $75 and $85 respectively for higher quality paint.

They rent out Planet Eclipse® ETEK 3 AM marker, Premium Proto mask Dye 09 Rotor, chest protector, podpack, and 3000 psi tank for only $30.00
Extras Include:
Chest protector & podpack rental, Mask Rental, Electronic Hopper each for $5, and Compressed Air Tank for $10 if you dont have one.

Like i said, they pay thier Employees well enough to be serious on the field, as attested by thier confidence of renting our $900 worth of equipment.

Proshop
Well stocked proshop offering apparel, protection, bags, harnesses, markers, masks, loaders, all Eclipse Sponsored or Dye related.

Staff, Refs, and Players
Knowledgeable about the lastest gear for the most part, over 5 Refs on field this satuarday with 2 on standby outside in the view stations. Offers advice and guidance to new players while on the field, and is active with paint checks and field movements. One ref at each end will have a shield and move around monitoring the players, with 1 each actively monitoring snake and Doritos, and one in the center. Ideal refs. Early in the day there are only 2 Refs to reflect the ammount of players, and as it progressed into the after noon the Ref count increased as well as the players on field, starting with 2 v 2 to 6 on 6 teams later in the afternoon. They alternate Walk-ons and Private parties, although Private Parties get more "Rounds" per game.

Players Range from 14 and up, with no excuse for "oh they have better gear". Go ahead and rent yourself a high-end marker exclusively supplies by Eclipse on the field. Up in the upper age limits you have players toting an array of higher-end markers including Bob Longs, Egos and DMs. Unless stated, all games are ran Semi-Auto as default, but there have been Full-Auto games for those that can participate.

Facilities
Clean Restrooms, drinking fountains, multiple vending machines, clean lobby and hourly maintained Staging Area. Chrono area is not monitored but if caught ramping up after your chrono is set, you are warned and then kicked for a second offense. All air fills are self-serviced, with staff providing instructions if needed. Parking is rather limited, but the general area is devoid of parked cars in the first place.

Food/
Authentic Pizza Parlor just up the block, with restaurants and fast food stops further along. The front counter also has a list of menus to order from.

Rating
Absolutely if not the best field i've gone through in my short period of time playing paintball, i enjoyed the professionalism of the Staff and Refs, as well as the well maintained staging area in a fully climate controlled facility. I give this field a 9/10.
