Review: First it was very confusin gettin to the actually field. Its out in da sticks! But once we got there it was @ first like where are the fields? When you first make your way towards the actually office, you will see a racetrack to your left (they race gocarts and stuff there as well). Then we geared up and started to make our way toward the target range. We came as a group so we had a good discount on rentals as well as paint (60 for a case!). We chronoed then made our way towards our first field which was woodsball.

Big A$$ wooded area to play in. Very well spaced out w/ wooded bunkers and firewood stacked up for some cover. It was a 4 on 4 game so it was very quick and way to easy. My team lost.

Next we went to a ghost town. This was amazing bcuz the owner hand built this ghost from scratch. 2 sided and a well that has the flag there. There are windows and doorways that you can actually shoot out of and stairways in some of the buildings that gets you on top of the them. Awesome ghost town, simple but effective for paintball.

Last we did speedball (my favorite). Instead of the blowups, they had big wooden spools and a variety of small and big tires stacked up to create bunkers. Very clean and very well spread out.

Conclusion:
Very cool place to go paintballing! The owner was very nice and let me get away w/ full auto. Price is very fair and the chilli dogs were da bomb! Only place to go paintballing in Bellevue, so if you go there then you wont be disappointed.

I give it a 10/10.

Review: This place was cool. I went there and i was never expecting what i would see there. I knew i was going to play woodsball and stuff and some speedball but i saw ghost town and it was awsome. The refs are really great people there and the prices are decent. I would go back to this place anytime because the owner there was awsome. The owner made sure that we all chronoed and he gave us a small deal on compressed air refills. Ghost town was set up perfectly and it was really hard to play but it was fun. I will give this feild a 10 because it had freindly people there.

Review: Well, I played at this field on opening day. I met a lot of people, such as a couple players from local teams, and the owner Jim. He was very nice but was not dressed professionally. He was wearing overalls, but i guess it doesn't matter. The ref's were not very great either, they didn't seem interested in the games. I had a guy in the snake on their hyperball field, put about 5 shots on him, and he wiped all of them w/ Jim standing about 20 feet away. I proceeded to shoot him a few more times. After the game i was yelled at and told i should not overshoot, and that the first shots were plenty. Hello.....how do you notice me shooting him 4 times instead of seeing him wipe 5 hits.......just wow.

Their fields were average. The airball was not set up, i guess it is only used for the tournaments. The hyperball bunkers were very small as was the field. They consisted of a few spools and cut up tires stacked with some type of support. The woods field is very large, but has good bunkers and a fort so its nice. Cleared out a lot too so you can run through it unlike some woods where you couldn't see someone 30 ft. in front of you.
The Ghost Town field is kind of stupid. You can't cross to the other side of the town, and nobody gets out, its sort of a big waste of paint, we just sat around and taunted players from the other side. The speedball field was made of spools with a snake made of hyperball pipes. It was pretty good and i mainly played on that.

The paint is Kick'n paintballs. They have 55/case for kick'n premium, 65/case for premium plus. It's not bad, not too brittle of a shell so no breaks in low-end spyders, as well as good breakage on other players, a good medium.

Air fills are a little weird. They do not offer all day air, a shame :(
You can buy an air fill card for $20.00, and you get 17,000 psi worth of air fills. That comes out o $3.50 for a 3000psi fill, not too expensive. Co2 is the normal $0.25 / ounce.

Admission is $5.00, pretty cheap.

Overall this is a pretty good budget field for the average player. A player from Dynasty Dynamics, Cody Smjick, used to play at this field when he was growing up. There are walk-on players and tournament players, and you can pick between what skill level players you'd like to play with. If this field was run a little more proffesionally it would be an awesome place. That and if they had an airball field setup on open play days.

Review: I played at great lakes last summer in their 3-man tourny. It is a great field. The refs are great, and the fields are sweet. The only thing that is bad is the paint price. It costs $65 for 2,000 rounds, but the $5 all day air and entry fee is awesome. Their woodsball field is really fun because its huge and there are alot of sweet bunkers in it. They have a speedball course that is spools, and one that is tires and other stuff. The air field they set up for the tourny is awesome. They also have ghost town which is 2 sides and there is a flag in the middle. That one is alright but it is kinda a waste of paint. I recomend going to this field, you will have alot of fun.

other then playing at GLPB, been playng here for 5 years
Review: I've known both JImmy Sr. and JImmy Jr. for about 5 years and have been playng at their field for that long too. THe field is great! they have a huge 8 acre woods area with numerous bunkers set up inside. Games in the woods usually consists of Elimnation, Center-Flag, team flag, spy, phantom, capture the fort (they have a 15x10 fort in the back of the field the opposing team must get to and touch 2 win the game, its about 7 ft high and has a front swinging door and back door entrance.exit) typically u just camp around it cuz if u stay inside, ur liable to get shot in the head, lol, it hurts. SO the woods is a great place, the summertime attrracts the moquitos, but bug repellent works well, great thing about the woods too is it has SOO many bunkers, theres never a spot u cant find to hide, and its so BIG, lotta fun sneakin up the right side when ur in the front. Ok, the speedball course is awesome too, they use severeal different size spools which actually came form Cedar Point, wires and whatnot is what these used to hold up, the spools were thrown out so they used em. SOme are 4 ft in height, others r smaller, some are bwteen 5-6ft in height. i've played speedball with 15 one time on each team, and it worked fine for me, alot of room, just dont try to do more then 2 at a bunker, ur all rdy butt rubbin with the dude next 2 u, 3 would be weird, lol. the hyperbal field is awesome, they used old tires, cuz them into circles that are about an inch thick, and stacked them up and used a wire to hold them tog2ther. the field is about 50 ft in width and maybe 150-200 ft in lenghth, its a awesome field, games dont take too long. the Sup-Air field...which is usused strictly or tourney usage is nice too, but i've only seen that once, man those balls sound like thunder hittn that:-)...the ghost town is alot of fun too, although u use quit a bit amount of paint, its alot of fun, its set up with a open road, and on each side of the road, u have the front of buildings, with rooms in them, and a porch, all connected down the line on each side of the road, fun stuff. The paint prices are good. he rents out the field to private usage too any day during the week, all u have to do is guarantee u have a minimum of 10 people show...u put a deposit of 100 dollars down, and at the end of the day all 10 people show, u get the money back.. ina ll, good prices, good owners, friendly inviroment, i been gong there since i was 13, and love it everytime i go out, a 10!

There are 2 other fields in my area and this one (Great Lakes) well aint worth the money
Review: Last week me and my buddy went to Great Lakes to try it out. We always got are CO2 from there so we figured we'd go there once. BIG MISTAKE!! The guy that runs the store is well i cant say,and he rips off kids. First the price of there paint is rediculous. Second the guy dosent tell u info about the rules and equipment need to play there until you pay 65 bucks for 2000 paintballs and another 4 to fill the CO2. You have to have there barrel cover which costs 7 bucks. so after i spent $70 dollars the guy wouldnt let me play until i spent another 7 on the barrel sleave, by this time i was broke, so i asked for my money back.(more like argue) So i ended up wastin my whole day .

BOTTOM LINE, Great Lakes paintball is a RIPOFF!!!!!!!!

Review: This fields awesome i go there with Buddy's and they have everything and it is so fun you play for all day on Sunday for just 5 bucks and the paint is so cheap and good. Its really fun when you go with a group. they have speed ball hyper ball woods and ghost town i like ghost town cuz its one of the hardest ones i mean you have to run out into the middle and get the flag(center flag)with no coverage at all but if you team puts a nuf coverage fire then your good. i know one kid that just goes out there with nothing and just runs for the flag and gets it. Defend the fort is my fav. game in the woods cuz you can just charge the fort with every thing you got. speed ball is fun but i went there one day and this guy had a mini black magic with a e blade trigger frame on it and he was was really good a speed ball. That day there was like 20 speed ball players there. I recommend this field to everyone that loves paintball it is the best.

Review: The paint is kind of rip off, 67 $ for a case. The admission is only 5 $ though, for about 5-6 hours of paintball, that's not bad. The speedball field (consists of spools, and tubes), was actually a really cool field, except that it was a 12 VS 12 person match, which just made everything an unstrategic, unorganized, partly-lucky battle. The woods field is Huge, and has alot of convenient sturdy cover. Capture the fort, and elimination is alot of fun. The GHOST TOWN which consists of on uncrossable middle grass area, with a system of buildings on each side is not much fun. It's just all shooting, with no strategy, and you'll use up all your paint in a flash. Also, air is a little pricey, 2.00 per 2000 psi, and 4$ for a 20 ounce Co2, not too bad, not too good. Other than that i don't have much to say about the field itself. Jim , and Jim Senior, are ok guys. Jim senior, (the ref) seemed like he did a pretty good job reffing, but since he was the only one, alot went without being seen. It's a fun field that can be a little pricey, but i recommend it to whoever is in the area, and just wants to have a good time. (they fixed my gun once, and it broke the same day, from the same problem they just fixed it from, which wasn't my fault)

Review: How can I put this,I first played at greatlakes paintball,I was dressed in camo and only would play the woods,and let me tell you those are some awesome woods,They had a mine shaft a real airplane (in a couple of pieces) but it was real,Big forts made of real timber,awesome coverage.We would have many battles in them woods,lasting all day and for a $5.00 field fee,paint was also cheap.

He also has a spindle speedball course (awesome) first one I had ever played on

Also he has a Hyper ball field the bunkers are small so its a fast pace game (watch out for people in the snake)

His Sup Air field is really cool,loved that no words can describe it.

I know the last time we played there he had a ghost town built where it was like the old west,you could go from building to building shooting across the alley in between,awesome
