Directions to the Field:
Use Michele Road address as the address on Plank Road will leave you at the edge of the IZOD complex a good half mile away from the field.
Safety & Staff:
The netting is brand new and special attention was paid to the field entry and exit areas so as to maintain extraordinary safety.
The staff makes sure that everyone keeps their barrel bags on before leaving the field and entering the field with goggles on. They are also very approachable and work hard at making everyone feel invited and having fun. This field does not seem to skimp on referees and staff.
They are so focused on safety that you must watch a safety video before playing in a dedicated "paintball safety theater." Very cool concept!
They chronograph every marker and check throughout the day to make sure everyone maintains the 250fps. I had never played at 250fps and I found that my marker accuracy was not affected but more importantly I didn't have that "beaten up" feeling I get every time I play other indoor paintball fields. The lower paintball speed made close quarter play much easier.
Just for the record: I detest indoor paintball places. Having said that, this field blew me away. I never thought I could enjoy indoor ball until I played at Ground Assault. This field shows us just what a great indoor experience can be. These guys are at the top of their game.
The Pistol Field will give those players looking for that swat experience everything they are looking for. With offices and bank counters, it makes for fun CQB play. It is not what I usually play but I can see how the realism and props would make this fun. Also look out for the fish eyes mirrors to look around corners.
The Large Field was incredibly well designed. For a new field it was amazing how well gel-ed it played with all sorts of exciting gameplay. This field played like it had taken years of adjustments to make it perfect. It had something for everyone from beginner to veteran, making it fun for everyone. This field was so large I forgot I was indoors.
The L Shaped field offered some interesting play but still feels a little clunky not having found itself just yet. However bear in mind that in any other place this medium field would be perfectly adequate but because the other fields raised the bar to such a high level it is natural that it felt like it had not reached it's full potential.
Did I mention the fields were constantly being cleaned between sets of matches? It is the only time i returned from an indoor place and wasn't coated in paint.
Very clean set up areas and the cleanest bathrooms in the industry.
Whether your a player, a parent or a friend, this place provides many areas to relax even for those that are not playing. Order food or use any of the vending machines.
Did I mention a very cool "tech bar" where your marker can be serviced and repaired on the spot.
They start early and are open late and are open during the week for those of us that need a midweek fix.
