i always have a really great time out at this field. yeah, the owner can be a bit much, but it's always about safety. he yells if you dont have your goggles on or if youre shooting people up for no reason. they are just kids, man, lighten up!
6 years ive been going there, and they have changed there fields a lot of times throughtout the years. theyve got an awesome speedball field with a helicopter and awesome props; the wooded fields is still open enough to see what's going on, but still keeps you in the shade, and i like the feel it has to it. the best thing is that no matter where you go, it is the dryest field in tampa bay. they are packed on weekends that are rainy becuase evey other field is soaking wet- some have even had to shut down because of it.
the refs are a bit much to handle, but i've seen a lot of the come and go. i give a hand out there when i can, sometimes they need an experienced player.
the prices are average. you get $10 air ALL DAY, and $10 field fee. you can bring your own paint which is great, but i dont think $60 is too much for a case.
there is a safety area that is netted off, which is very much just that, safe. you aren't allowed to shoot in the parking lot at all, so yeah, they yell at you like crazy out there. barrelplugs inat the parking lot too, you dont want to get your eye shot out, now do you?
the owner, whose name is NOT lenord, but warren, (aka buck) is a tough one. he's been doing this for almost 15 years and is the most safety conscious guy i know. he makes a lot of money out there, it's been atleast 60 people there, sometimes 80, and he's not going to jepordize his business for some punk kids that think they know everything. if you cant keep your mask on, these other review are right, dont go there. it was the first field in florida- i think he's very protective of the new player.
so yes, if you want to get shot up with big guns, go somewhere else, but jungle games is a place to take the kids. but dont bother going out there if you cant keep your mask on and obey a surrneder rule.

Buck does jeapordize his bussiness for some punk kids who think they know everything. They are his refs. This is not the dryest field in the area cuase if you havent noticed it is covered in layers of WET paintballs. Yes Buck makes a lot of money out there and thats all he cares about is his money. This is not a place to take the kids. I managed to get behind the other team and eliminated them all except 2 little kids that were so small they couldnt see over the top of the bunker. I tried shooting next to them to scare them into surrendering so I wouldnt have to hurt them. When the kids gave signs of giving up Buck began to tell yell at them to stay in the game even though we had the kids surrounded. All of us held our fire to not hurt them and no matter where these kids went they did not have cover. So when they decided giving up and dealing with bucks screaming was worse than getting shot we had no choice but to give them the scare of thier lives and then surrender them point blank. These kids are probably terrified now and its all becuase buck wanted them not to surrender when they had no chance. He obviously wanted to see some poor little child get lit.
