I went to pay a visit to this place on the above date because it is so close to where I live and work. I came across it's location listing using the field locator on here which is quite nice. However, the Maxx Paintball facility is no more. The location and building is currently bank owned.
The Bunker in Flint
Road Challenge Paintball Arena
Killer paintball in Taylor
Directions to the Field:
in Shelby township, Oakland, MI
I met with the owner and went while it was closed to get a look at the arena. It was undergoing some renovations and was told it will be opening up again soon(contact me for updates, I'll be watching them). To be perfectly honest it wasn't as some other's I have been to but with a little work it can be one of the best reball arena's in Michigan.The field was indoors a little smaller then the bunker's indoor facility. it's perfect for a 5 man or 7 man. game.
neat stuff- COSMIC PAINTBALL!!!! black lights and glow in the dark paintballs...it's sweet. They also have a target shoot, chrono, staging area and there is food in their lobby.
Prices- the best I have seen anywhere. I'm fairly certain it's 25 a person with their own gear and it's reball so it's all you can shoot, and I think 10 more for rental gear. That's cheap compared to some other places I have been to, like the bunker was 40 bucks, and that was about an hour and a half drive away.
location-personally it's great for me, it's about half an hour away, easy to spot with thier big MAXX PLAY sign. next to a KFC. Much easier my gas tank other fields are literally hours away.
I'm giving this a 7, because it's not up there yet, but I have no doubt it will become a great place to practice and play local tourney's soon.

This field is a nice reball facility and with a little bit af work can be one of the top reball facility's in Michigan. The hours are flexible and are open in the morning as well as at night. It is relatively cheap to play ($25 for play and all day air if you have your own equipment and $35 if you don't). There is not a proshop there but there is one close by called pb authority and lone wolf. The staff is very friendly and is very cooperative and nice. The refs are one of the nicest and best refs i have ever seen and they are very sexy. The facility has a lot more than just reball and the food is great. I recommend that anyone that is in Michigan and has the chance to play reball there take the opportunity and play.
