Review: I had a very bad experience here and would not recommended this field to anyone else. The first thing I disliked about this place is the price. At other paintball places such as Twisted Paintball, the base price to play is $15. Here, I payed close to $40 for entry and a barrel sock. It would have been even higher than that if I had needed to rent equipment. On their web site, they advertise 40 acres of playing fields, but a very small portion of that is actually developed and utilized. The turnaround time between games was also very slow. Nobody seemed to know what we were waiting for, but it always took at least 15 minutes and sometimes 20 or 25 for the referees to start new games. They would often take smoking breaks between games and put little effort in to organizing players for games. After paying so much, I was really disappointed that I was only able to play 4 or 5 games (about 10 minutes each) in 3 hours. Also, there was not any good food available here as there often is at paintball places, so if you do go, and plan to stay for awhile, be prepared to make a food run.

Now I am coming to the part that finally pushed me to write this bad review on the internet. The refs and the owners are very winy and like to chew people out. Both me and my friend had a problem with this. Safety is a huge concern for me, and I always do everything I can to ensure my safety and the safety of others. The same goes for my friend. We always follow the rules, and were completely compliant with the referees in everything they asked of us. This is why it was so disappointing that they thought it would be appropriate to chew both of us out when we made a few mistakes. I was eliminated earlier in a match, and since I was planning on leaving after that match, I began to shoot in to the woods. While I was doing this, the ref yelled for me to stop, which I did immediately. After the match, the ref began to chew me out in front of everyone, saying that he needed to "make an example of me" because there were houses behind the woods. I did not argue with this, even though the houses were WELL out of range of the paintball, and there was no danger of my hitting them. After we all came back out of the woods, the ref tried to bring me over to the owner so that he could also chew me out, but I was already on my way to leave. Needless to say, when there are so many other, better places to play paintball. My friends have also had similar experiences. The refs and owners are very friendly at first, but it doesn't last long. The one good thing I can say about this place is that it does have a good woodsball course, but I didn't get to play on it very often because the refs were too busy smoking, and we were only allowed to play on a small part of it.

We take safety extremely serious. When players do not follow the safety rules and instructions of the referees to ensure the fun and safety of the other players it is understandable that said player may not have as much fun as everyone else. In the woods, we have over a mile of roadways, two large scenario bases, forts, and a host of other structures and bunkers to play on multiple fields/areas. The first three acres just inside the woods are cleared with a forestry machine, mulched and set up as three huge fields. The speedball fields consist of spools and airball. As I type we are expanding the front fields to include a PSP field, another airball field, hyperball field and more.
See everyone at the park.
