Boonie Rat Paintball (Denton), Fun on the Run (Ft Worth), Paintball Paradise (Rhome), Mad Ivans (Ft Worth)
- Grounds Setup; When you first pull into the parking area you can feel this is not some "thrown together field in your friend's backyard". There is a large building that houses the rental area, pro shop, concession and group activity area. You also get a to see the netted speedball field just adjacent to the the main building.
- Cover staging/pavilion area; This is a nice way to spend time in between games. It's covered and has plenty of picnic tables to hold you equipment and supplies.
- Shower area; Very nice to have especially in the summer. Assuming you ask permission it's a great way to finish off you your day there. Anyone who has been in Texas for any extended period of time can attest that nothing beats being able to shower off after running around in 100+ degree weather.
- Personable staff and players; very nice plus to this field. Everyone from the Refs down to the regulars there can off as comfortable to get along with. No one made me feel like I was some sort of outsider. I have been to some fields were it was evident the cliques that were going on from the outset, I saw none of this here.
-Price; Inexpensive can describe it. $10 field fee(full day)/ $10 paint fee (can be waved if you buy at least $10 in field paint)
-Limited staff; God bless them but there weren't enough refs to go around the day that I was there. At the biggest there were 70-75 players there and only 4 refs. They needed at least double that.
-Wait time between games; Quite possible due to the first con but there was an average of 20 mins in between games. It could be different on other days but no the day I went out there.
-Field rotation; For some reason they limited use to 4 fields- Speedball, Spools, Powerstation, and the Trench (my favorite by far). Would have loved to see some of the other fields on site.
-Advertising/Directional markers; Unless you pay close attention or have driven by you can outright miss DFW/AP. There is one small sign on Westbound Hwy 114 and no sign-age on Eastbound Hwy 114(the way I come from). Once you turn on the right road (Cleveland-Gibbs) you really can't miss it.
Conclusion: Great place to play despite the minor issues. Quite a few nicely added features. Inexpensive to play,, not a bad way to spend a day playing paintball.
