Review: Safety: Each group of rentals receive a personal and very comprehensive safety demonstration. The fields are completely surrounded by two layers of netting.

Fields: Two indoor airball fields, but the one in the back is often reserved for private parties and not open to the public. I believe the public field is a standard X-ball field but they keep the X on its side. The floor is concrete with astro turf on top. Like most indoor fields the floor is VERY slippery good for sliding but I would highly recommend cleats. I love the field it's a lot of fun and very even.

Hours: From their site
Monday and Tuesday : Noon – 8p.m.
Wednesday - Friday : Noon – 10p.m.
Saturday (Now using Summer Hours): 10a.m. – 8 p.m.
Sunday (Now using Summer Hours) : 10a.m. – 7 p.m.

Prices:
Rentals
Tippmanns
$35 for equipment and 200 rounds and $45 for equipment and 500 rounds + 10 for electric A-5.
Self Equipped: $85 for admission all day air and a case of paint.

Rules: Mask rule is very important, like all fields you cannot take your mask off on the field. They enforce this very heavily which is good for players and for the field. They have a system where players wear a ski-lift ticket with two boxes one for a warning for breaking the mask or barrel cover rule and the other a dismissal, so you get two chances before you get kicked out.

Proshop: The have a fully stocked shop with a large variety of markers, loaders and accessories. I never asked but they probably have someone on staff to fix your marker if needed.

Staff: The have a very large friendly and helpful staff always available to help.

Refs: Though they normally have two refs for every game, they tend to stay behind the netting and only on one side completely blind to the other. There is a lot of wiping and the refs often don't see this and I hardly see refs actually calling people out.

Players: A very good mix of players. They separate rentals and self-equipped players for some very even matches. Rentals can jump into self-equipped games. Self-equipped is full of some very good and intermediates players. Players with beginner markers often play with the rentals.

Facilities: They have single men's and women's bathrooms. Their staging area is full of tables which people can place their things. Personally, I would like to have a locker or some closed storage place but they claim to be watching your stuff and I have never had anything stolen from me so I guess it's safe. They have a closed chrono area where the refs check your marker and where you tweak it too.

Food: They have two always stocked vending machines with snacks and drinks. There is also some fast food and a supermarket nearby.

Critique: They need to put a ref on the other side of the field there is too much cheating and it can be very frustrating. I would also feel safer with some sort of locker for my belongings. Their prices are moderately priced but they have a lot of special deals making this place a great deal (look on their website for more details). I would also like to be able to play on the other field but I understand private groups get priority.

Overall: This is a great field, it's fun, clean and well priced. Now going to school in Boston, I'm calling this place home. I give the field a 9/10.
