Review: So a few days ago I decided to give the Paintball USA fields in Santa Clarita a try for the first time. I was a serious regular at the their field in Simi Valley before it was closed down a few years back.

Pricing-

It costs $20 for Walk on Admission, plus $10 for all day air, so $30, which seems to be pretty much standard for most places I've been. The field is BYOP for self-equipped players only, so if you're renting, you'll have to bite the bullet and deal with $65 a case.

Fields-

I went in with the mindset that the fields would be in the similar "run down" condition that they were in at the Simi Location, after all it's still the same owner. I was pleasantly surprised to see the fields were in very good condition, and could accommodate large groups without hassle.

I quickly found out that there are in fact 2 sections of this park. I split my day 50/50 to get the full experience. There is the spot at the very bottom, which has a couple large Hyperball fields, and a good sized Airball field. There may have been a few other fields down there, but I think the were closed due to mud.

If you drive up the hill (can't miss it), you'll find a much larger 2nd area. I am told this used to be Conquest, but after their stint there, PBUSA took it over. This area is naturally all large Scenario & Rec-ball fields. I played on a total of 4 fields up there, but there are more.

Those fields were:

Baghdad, a very large "urban" field with over 100 bunkers.

Dunes, a medium size square shaped field with hills of dirt as bunkers.

Trenches, (which was muddy and only half open) which is very self explanatory.

and Haystacks, a Rec-ball field similar to a Hyperball but bigger and with Haystacks for bunkers.

I'd like to add that this upper area features all the same amenities that the lower area does, such as sign in, air fill stations, and parking.

Safety & Referees

They were very on top of safety while I was there. There are naturally signs everywhere reminding players to keep their barrel sleeves on and the goggle rules were heavily enforced by both referees and other players.

The Refs seemed to be pretty good about getting games started quickly, and I never had to wait more than 10 minutes between games. They balanced the teams very nicely so that each team had the same amount of people and made sure that they were splitting up players evenly. I was very impressed by all the Refs fairness & attention to the game, responding to nearly every Paint check and calling hits when they saw them.

Conclusion-

I was very satisfied with my experience at Paintball USA and if it wasn't for the 50 mile drive I'd go there regularly. The players were all very friendly and seemed to demonstrate exceptional sportsmanship. I recommend this field to all players looking to have a good day of Paintball, be it down on the Speedball fields or in the mix up in the Scenario games.
