Review: I've decided to post an up to date review of this field since the last review is from over a year back. I'll start with the actual field. The bunkers are great, high quality, and always filled. The size of the field is rather tight when playing with more than 10 players a side, but that's on a rare occasion only. The floor is a well built type of grass which makes it easy to crouch, slide, and roll, if it wasn't soaked in the paint. I'm usually almost hesitant to slide due to the fact that I'll be soaked in paint, not that I care about my clothes, but this is an extremely uncomfortable feeling. The safety of the field is 10/10, thick nets between the staging areas and the whole emphasis on the way it's built is made for safety. Between the field and staging area there is a "Middle Area" where you have the chance to take your barrel sleeve off and your mask on before getting into the field. There's also some greasy benches for those wishing to watch the game after being hit. The punishments for having a barrel sleeve off in the staging area, or a mask off on the field are harsh, and the employees will usually make you sit a game or two out. They also have a rule preventing you from shooting another player from closer than 10 feet, instead you're told to yell either MERCY or SURRENDER which is rather a pain on a field which is only about 40 feet in length as you will be fighting close range a large portion of the time. Also, attempting to surrender enemy players is a risk to yourself, as the is the chance that they will panic and you'll end up taking a paintball point blank, which isn't a pleasant experience. The rental equipment is terrible. Masks have an annoying tendency to fog often and the PCS US5s they offer curve paintballs all over the field, making it hard to hit anything. As a gun owner I don't have this problem, but renters might find it annoying. Moving onto the staff. The staff is absolutely horrible. It's a collection of middle aged men who love to assert the "I know more than you, so shut up" attitude, an some teenagers as refs which act like their being forced to work there. There's one helpful staff member, but he rarely works on the actual field. The refs are usually uneducated in the sport and on many instances call you out because you've slidden on the wet ground and been splashed with paint, which the ref mistakes for you being shot. Any complaints will usually result in you being threatened to be thrown out, or you will actually be thrown out. The pricing is terrible. They'll charge you over 100 bucks for a case of 2000 paintballs. When buying seperately, it's 10 bucks for 100 paintballs, a ridiculous price as 100 paintballs might not last you an entire 5-15 minute game.

Over all, the field itself is good, but the pricing and staff can really ruin your experience if your unlucky. I tend to enjoy myself playing at this field, but once every few trips, something bad happens, Eg: Terrible reffing, staff being annoyed that your not going easy on the new guys, or something along these lines that can completely ruin it for you. Go at your discretion fellow paintballers.
