Other Fields
in the Area:
Poco Loco - No comparison, Triage is MUCH better.
Jack Frost- Better Selection of fields, but Triage has better staff, prices, and lets you play more games.
Review: Having been a paintball player from the days when having a gun with auto-trigger was a big deal, Constant Air was a new thing, and paintball was oil based and cost 3 bucks a tube, it was absolutely refreshing to find a field that still holds true to the reasons for which paintball began: fun and excitement.
The place is relatively easy to find if you know where you are going, but as a suggestion, a sign outside the driveway would help for people who are unfamiliar with the area. When you get in, they have a fully stocked pro-shop, which is a refreshing change from other local places that run games out of the back of a trailer. The equipment is issued in the shop, and you are then bussed (2 minutes max) to the fields.
The prices: ahhh this is where the greatness of Triage starts. A measly 10 bucks is the field fee if you own your own equipment, and this gets you field use and free co2 for the day. If you need to rent, Triage uses Tippmann 98's which are exceptionally maintained (the field is relatively new though, but nonetheless they were in great condition.) One of our renter's gun started leaking during one game, and they had a new one out to him immediately, which is a testament to the quality of the staff. The paint we got was Storm (I think)... I had never heard of it (but then again, I'm not in touch with all of this new-fangled paintball gear), but it was good quality, ball breakage was kept to a minimum. The best part is that it's hardly marked up at all, it was $60 for a case of quality paint; unheard of at a commercial field. Excellent.
While I'm talking about staff, I'm generally a critic of the modern paintball player. A great thing about Triage's staff is that they are down to earth; most fields employ self-professed "professional" players who strut around with their $1500 rainbow guns and talk your ear off about how much better they are than you because you use a stock gun. Not here. Every staff member we spoke with had a great attitude, and truly seemed to enjoy being on the field, which made our experience that much better. A few staff members even played with our group (after asking permission; another thing we weren't used to) and congratulated the people who shot them out. Wow is all I can say, it made me consider going back to paintball after switching to Airsoft. Our main ref for the day was Dan, he did a phenominal job, always did paint checks when we asked for them. The Triage refs were so good at this, that they would even get on their radios to call for paintchecks across the field by other refs. We generally had 3 refs on the field for each game, which was nice (most places give you 2).
The fields are excellent, very milsim in nature with sandbags, foxholes, and structures. The attack and defend field is probably the best I've ever played, and it seems like a great deal of time went into field design and construction, because they all flow very well. More fields were being constructed while we were playing, so it will interesting to see what they do with them.
All in all, if you want to play at a great field, go to Triage. You will have FUN. The staff are great, the prices are the best I've seen, and the fields get even this often critical paintball player excited. You won't regret going to Triage. I'm giving it a 10 with just a suggestion that the refs get the players started a bit more quickly in the beginning of the day; but overall, it's arguably the best commercial field I've played.
