been to Santa Clara PB, Los Gatos PB, Davis PB and PB Jungle in Nor Cal. Also been to fields in Sol Cal but it says to only compare this to the ones near to it.
Directions to the Field:
search on google or on the field web site
first time coming to this place, wasn't a long drive for me from SF, about a 35 - 45 min drive. a lot closer than the field that i am used to going to in Davis. the first thing that i saw when i got to this place and was really happy about was that they had shades. you could park under the tree shades all day and not have to worry about scorching heat during lunch or afraid your paint might swell or melt.
Location - the location of the field is great, right behind a resident area, 2 mins away from the field there is a 7 eleven, and maybe about half a mile away there are basically all the kinds of restaurants or supermarkets. Great location i would say.
Service - The service at the front desk is like all others, friendly and answers questions you ask. i think their proshop is right beside the place where you sign in. my friend had problems with his marker a couple times, and the person at the proshop spent a great deal of time in the trying to fix it. i wouldnt say they seemed like a expert at fixing markers, but basically did what people would do to check for problems. at first didnt know what the problem was but after a while we figured out the problem. one more thing is they will tell you about the raffle tickets and how to win and stuff like that if you get them.
pricing - i'm not a rental player, so i will do a non-rental player pricing pricing first. there is a $20 admission fee and $10 dollar all day air and $15 fee if you dont buy paint from them. their 40 dollar paint is actually ok in my opinion, but seems like a smaller caliber.
equipment - For Rental players its much too expensive in my opinion. most people rent tippmann 98's that are customized in to Mac 10 ozzies. never shot it before so dont know about the accuracy of the markers cause of the changed barrels, but the original 98 shoots well i think. the face masks seem decent and clean.
Referee - the referees are nice people, and try and answer questions that they can. but sometimes they have bad communication problems. for example sometimes one side starts first or one might say the game is over, but actually there are still one or two players still in the game. the ref do come and check the person if requested and would call out players who are hit. the only problem i had was that the ref didnt fully explain the boundaries and the objective of that game. they have many different types of games, there is capture the flag, elimination, 2 flags, etc.. BE SURE TO ASK THE REF OR OTHER PLAYERS IF YOU DONT KNOW, OR YOU'LL JUST BE WALKING AROUND AND BE SHOT OUT.
players - there are mostly experienced players who play on the main fields and noobs who play of the side small fields. people are friendly, and would play on the small fields if you ask them to play. people usually dont cheat, they just dont know that their hit usually, especially the noobs. if your experienced dont blaim them, just call the ref.
food - like i said , restaurants within 1 or 2 mile. hot dog stand on site and ice cream truck.
safety - i was there late so i didnt hear any safety speech. didnt need to chrono markers, but should do so on ur own. same mask and plug rule enforced well.
fields - only played in the zulu field and corcket field, they were pretty big for a group of i would say 30 + people. the bunkers were made of stacks of logs, the forts were alright sized, i think you could fit about 15 people in them, im not sure if there were 2 floors for the fort though.
Raffle tickets - you get raffle tickets i think if you buy paint or rent gears from them, also if you finish objectives in games like capture the flag and some other stuff. the time of the raffle is during noon about 1: 00 - 1:30. the gifts arent much, but i would say its better than nothing.
had a good day there, would go back often.
