some indoor place in Peoria that closed down...i'm from out of state, so I mainly play at apocalypse in madison, WI, The Edge in Janesville, WI, and there are a few others in WI that I have been to
Review: Well, I had come down to sudden impact from out of state. I normally play in wisconsin, so as I was visiting relatives, I decided to check out a new field...and I looked at the website for it on here and didn't want to go initially, but the website is far outdated and they have much newer things now.

Upon arriving to the field, it looked fairly nice...a good possibility that I was going to have fun, but it was also 93 degrees...but thats not the fields fault...anyways, when we got up to the counter to pay, they didn't accept credit or debit...which is a shame, every field i've gone to does accept...so they got docked points in my book for that, and so we had to drive out to find an ATM(in which the nearest were in Mclean about 10 minutes off and both ATMs were down...so I had to bust out the spare cash and just hold back on my trigger finger a little for the day)...the field fee is very nice though...5 bucks for field fee and you get all day air included, a definite bonus, except they only fill to 3000 psi...the paint price is average...72 bux for a case of mid-low end paint...pmi premiums, not bad, but could be better...

the staging area was probably one of the better things about the field, picninc tables and spools all shaded by small tents...although the staging area was small(understandable for the small amount of traffic that comes through there) it was still very nice...with a woodchipped ground covering.

the airball field was nice...a good grassy field, nice bunker layout...but the hyperball was not...the set up was ok, but they used woodchips on the ground...I abused my elbows a little crawling in the snake, and there is not chance to superman slide or knee slide without fear of impaling yourself or ripping your pants or jersey...

they need an instructional video for all of the peopel who have never been there before, instead of having one of the refs do it himself, no offense, he did an ok job, but a rehearsed video would get people's attentions better...and they talk about no dry firing in the staging areas and whatnot...but there were people dry firing into the garbage cans and one kid had the audacity to start dry firing his imp without a barrel condom on...sure, there wasn't paint in the hopper, but he was just walking the trigger in the open...and the refs just sat by and let it happen...but they refs were very strict about keeping masks on in non-staging areas...

all around...ok field, need more speedball fields, a credit card machine, a megabooster, and some sand for their hyperball field.
