They are very good about safety on and off the fields, nice place to take kids for first out doors play that's not an hour away. They just finished adding a new part to house to make the field more playable. just made price change's, but if you own gear and like to play you need to get the years pass for $150 and with that you can save on paint. refs are great about playing any game you want. others players are nice about trying to help with tec problems as well as staff. this field is about 20min away for me, it's nice to have a field this close to home.
465 and Raymond St on Indy's east side. Take 465 to Southeastern Ave exit, go toward Indianapolis. Turn Right at the first light. Turn right at the first light again (on to Raymond St). Take Raymond over 465 it is over the bridge on the right. You can see it from the interstate.
They have 6 fields to choose from...
Two Woodsball-one small and good for 5v5 etc, the large one for under 10v10 etc. Good bunkering. the bunkers are a little uneven side vs side but switch sides every game and you are ok.
One Huge Woodsball (20+ people only)-big open good to go.
Speedball-I like it, its different than all other speedball fields with a giant wooden "i" in t he center.
Spool/speedball-Huge electrical wire spools set up in a "speedball" fashion.
"The House"-Assault the house from a cornfield. My favorite game field. Mounds of dirt with overgroth, small trees, corn, a few cars thrown in to make it fun. and a House with 2 bedrooms a bathroom, kitchen etc. They are very lax about moving things in the house to provide cover.
Great Staff, friendly, appreciative, and go the extra mile. They make you feel like you are actually important to them. Refs are very flexible too, they work together with other groups to coordinate field use with other groups.
Proshop is a little small, it is literally the main room of a farm house. It is lacking in the refreshment department, but you can bring your own.
Staging area is directly in the sun, aside from that it is roomy with plenty of tables and chairs. It's in between all of the fields.
Price is what brought me here a year ago. Parties of 10 $300. $40 walk on both with 500 paintballs per person. $60/case of balls and BYOP Fridays. $15 field fee if you have your own equipment, plus balls, of course.
Players have always been very friendly and want to play together. More people, more fun.
This field is way better than dark armies lower prices nicer staff better fields. They dont alot of food. If you are a new paintball player you will have fun. They let you use your own gun or there rental.
The rental guns are Bt or Piranha markers. The pro shop is a little to small. They have six fields. Every friday they have an event called byop witch means bring your own paint. I had alot of fun and ill be going back.

First impression of the field was a bit sketchy at first, since it appeared as though it was run out of some guy's house, with a barn. The entrance to the pro shop is literally through the backdoor of the house.
The pro shop seemed a bit small, and can be a bit crowded with anymore than ten people in it at any one time. There is however seating available, should you have to wait.
Rental markers break the de facto standard of Tippmann 98's, and instead they use BT-4's, and Piranha GTI+'s. Harness/pack and pods aren't included in the standard rental package, but the staff is nice enough to add it should you ask for it at no extra cost.
With equipment you bring your own, they do things a little bit different that no other fields I've been to check; saftey. Specifically, they check your air tank's hydro date, and give your mask a quick visual check. They also attach a blaze orange zip tie to your tank to designate it as your own, and safe to use.
Air is supplied in either CO2, or 3K HPA. The HPA self-serve station is there in the pro-shop, which can be a little inconvenient since the pro shop is a good walk from the staging area. The compressor is also right next to the self-serve station, which can make it pretty loud while it's recharging.
The staging area itself is half-shaded by trees, and the rest are all large wire spools with table umbrellas in them. By about middle of the afternoon, the whole staging area is effectively in the sun. Two fields - the wooden speedball, and woodsball field - have benches set up for spectators, and are better shaded than the rest of the staging area. The chrono station is located about half-way between the pro-shop and the staging area, behind a maze of field netting. I nearly walked onto a field, rather than the chrono station with the way it's laid out. Also, with I-465 not but a stone's throw away from the field, it can be hard to hear people at times.
The staff and refs are very social, and attentive to saftey, almost to a fault. There was a little accident during one game on the woodsball field. Someone tripped and sprained their ankle. The refs killed the game, and got everyone to plug their markers. There was yelling back and forth between the field and the pro-shop, and an ATV flatbed came out to pick the guy up. A few minutes later, a fire truck was out to check on the guy, saying an ambulance was on the way, but cancelled it. Likely a bit of miscommunication due to it all being yelled back at the pro-shop. A simple radio system wouldn't go amiss considering the size of the place.
The fields consisted of your usual inflatible speedball, a hardwood speedball field with a large I (instead of an X) on the 50, a woodsball field (as well as another one called "The Back 40" we didn't play on, since they recommend that each team have 20 players), and one field simply called "The House", which is literally that, in the middle of a cornfield. Makes for a very interesting game, since the attacking team only has soft cover all the way up to the house.
The field is both FPO, and BYOP (BYOP at an extra $15 fee, except on Fridays). For recycling paint, you can return an unopened bag of 500 to get a credit back. i.e.: you buy a case of paint, and shoot 800 rounds. You can return the two unopened bags of 500, but not the remaining 200. Next time you visit, tell the staff you've got a paint credit, and they'll hand you two fresh bags of 500.
Overall, the field has a lot of potential. There's a lot of room for improvement for how they run their operation, but it's not anything horrible. Already, there's signs of expansion, and with the fun time I had, I'll definitely be coming back.
