First of all, the most common complaint I hear about this place is how mean Allen is. I've never had a problem with him, but then I don't play paintball for snuggly-time with the field owner. He's not the most warm-fuzzy guy you'll ever meet, but he's got a nice paintball field. If you want hugs and pats on the back from the owner for playing a good game, go elsewhere. If you're that sensitive, maybe you should try quilting instead. In fact, if you'd like the option of walking around the parking lot without a barrel plug, or not having to chrono, try the Ace field up the street. Action charges $22 for 500 paintballs of varying pedigree, so come prepared.
ANYHOW...the important stuff:
This is a BIG place. 700+ acres. You can go WAY out of the way and out-flank the other team from out of nowhere. Even though the game schedule is the same every weekend, every game is different, as there's just so much room to run around. Thick woods and open fields. Nice big speedball field.
They are VERY strict about their safety rules (unlike Ace up the street), and I don't ever worry about losing an eye in the parking lot. A good place to bring newbies so they get indoctrinated about safety. My 11yo step-daughter brought 3 friends a few weeks ago and everybody looked out for them and made sure they had a good time.
Harvey was very helpful when I was having trouble w/ my son's marker. He took the time to take it completely apart and threw some new o-rings on it, then put it back together, smiled, and walked away.
I give this place an 8, and when they replace the old rusty trailer with a real check-in shop, provide HPA, lower their paint prices, and mix the games up a bit, I'll rate it a 9 or 10.
