Paintball Revolution (Speedball)- Better sevice (By Far)
Ultimate Adventures Paintball (Outdoor)- Better field and service (Even better than Revolution)
Flag Raiders (Outdoor)- Best of all, but too expensive
Well, well. My original perception of this field was pretty high. I was new, I had fun, I saw, left, and came again. I didn't mind that the guy with the Autococker and Freak barrel got service before me even though I've been waiting for 5 minutes already and he just walked up. I didn't mind that that REF rudely told me off for recommending a scenario game, and that he won't give me a paint check, but the guy with the tricked out Tippmann get's one. Until I went to other fields and realized what a huge waste of time and money this place is. I expected that maybe this was normal for a early teen aged kid to get ignored and put at the end of the importance list. I was wrong. The other fields I've went ot have treated with RESPECT and care for my business; asking if I had a good time, slipping me a few extra balls, offering me a free BBQ lunch and filling my Co2 tank for free, even if little things like that happen it makes the field a hell ova' lot better, not to mention just plain more fun. Don't count on it at the Paintball Arena. Though the owner is fairly friendly, the staff ARE NOT!
Now that you know that, unless your gun is kick-ass and your a regular, you won't even be remembered not to mention get any service. Now the only part I was impressed with, the field.
The props and buildings are well designed and well put together. There ruggedness is impressive and set up even better. A few "Sniper Holes" and windows are nice and can provide some nice sneak attacks. The only part I have to complain about the actual field is that the floor is made of sand. Terrible if if gets in your gun and get's all over your shoes, it's a real pain in the ass to clean out. Besides that it is quite nice and rugged, urban-ish style that is enjoyable.
To conclude, if your starting to get into the sport then go right ahead and try this place out. If not, I'd recommend that you don't lend a visit to the Paintball Arena. You may have fun on the field, but that's were it ands. BTW, you don't get any discount if your not renting, unless you have a membership, which is also to expensive for the play your getting.
A disappointing 4 out of 10, for a below average arena.
