Review: Velocity Paintball Park is my favorite paintball park. Its fairly close to where I live, I can get in a car right now and be there in 30 minutes. So its pretty convenient for me.

It's $20 admission (with your own gear) and you can bring your own paint. And $3 air fills isnt bad. Velocity also has snacks and drinks available that you can buy.

The staff there is experienced, if you have a problem with your marker, they can fix it. They have a trailer there with spare parts, so you can buy spare parts for your marker from them if something is missing or broken. They have C02 and HPA. If they ask you, "Where did you get your gun?" say you got it at the velocity proshop in either poway or bonita. They asked my little brother that and my brother said that he bought it at another proshop (which he did, borderland btw) and the guy gave him dirty looks.

The chrono station (last time I went) was kinda bleh... there was only 2 available chronos, and one of them was broken, so all the players had to wait in line. It didnt take very long for all the players to chrono. Players went in groups of like 2-10 and it didnt take very long, but still, that one chrono wasnt working, and it wasnt working last time I went there too.

Use the porta potties only in case of emergency

They have two seperate groups, advanced and noobs. In the noobs group, there's no bunkering, and there's a surrender rule of 20 feet away. Advanced, bunkering is allowed and I believe the surrender rule is reduced to 15 ft. So noobs can have fun playing by themselves with out the intimidation of experienced players, or if they're up to a challenge they can join the advanced group. Usually in the morning, there is only a noob group, and later on in the day, when more players show up, they open up an advanced group.

There is a wide variety of fields, ranging from speedball, to woods, recball, hyperball. So you dont get bored, and the fields look different too. The first time I went, the first field I went to was woods. The bunkers were made out of sticks, the ground was dark brown dirt, it was very shady, The trees blocked the sun. The second field I played was a kind of speedball field with spools. The bunkers were spools, and the ground was kind of like sand and it was out in the open in the sun. The third field is a hyperball field, its kind of shady, and the ground is light brown. There are other fields as well, so as you can see they have nice variety.

The "system" works out like any other field, you drive there, park your car, and basically use your car like your own hut. Like if your tired and want to sit out a game, you can just sleep in your car. You can change your clothes in your car and store all your gear in there when your playing. You go to the front office place, turn in paper work, and go back to your car and with your group. You fill up pods, get your air filled, chrono, talk with your friends, eat snacks, what ever. And when your group gets called up, you go. The call 3 times, 1st call, 2nd call, and 3rd call. After 3rd call they start walking to the field.

The players there are nice and are willing to help out newer players. A lot of teams play there, (e.g. Team Velocity, etc)

If you live in the San Diego area, give this field a try.
