ICU Paintball (indoor field, made for speedball so no real comparison here), Action Jacks (old field). Action Jacks had more playable fields at the time, not sure how their new field compares.
Great little field to play on. The city field makes for some intense battles, and they are constantly improving it. My team and I have played a few games there (www.teamelitepaintball.com). They usually do a Pod Wars game once a year, lots of fun (extra pods and random prizes!) Haven't played on the woods field yet.
Staff at the field are great. Very professional, they take the safety of everyone at their field seriously and are always making sure everyone is having fun. Be sure to bring your own spare parts etc for your guns though, field doesn't carry those things if I remember correctly.
Field does have both compressed air and CO2 fill stations, so you'll be good to go with both options here. Haven't had any problems with the paint the field carries (they also allow you to bring your own paint, very uncommon for paintball fields).

Great place, 2 awsome fields.
pros- Awsome staff- CHRIS MAN YOU ROCK!!!
They let us use our own paint.
Cityscape field is so freakin sweet
Cons- CO2 fill staion wasn't working tho that may have been due to the 15 degree weather
Didn't have more that a few working rentals, tho this may have also been due to the cold.(if you have you own gun ur fine)
Best place I've been to considering that I have only been Paintballing twice. I'm not a big fan of their woodsball field but that's probably because i don't like woodsball. Love the Big course and the Superpipe field. The X-ball field wasn't up that day so i didn't get to see that. I suggest calling in advance. Prices are the Best I can find around. You get like $80 paintballs for $15/500. Free Co2 with entry.Entry is like $10-$15.Services are real nice The own can fix almost anything. Not much of a pro shop they are kind of the field to the shop ICU paintball since ICU sold their field. The staff is really nice. One owner lives on the property and the other lives in Des Moines, Iowa which happens to be one of my friends good friends. Facilities are ky-bows. From what I used but he might let you use his house. They don't sell food their so just pick some up at a gas station and you will be set. It's not like you went their to eat.
I've played at Action Jacks a lot. For speedball, I like DOA much better.
DOA is a great field. They have a city field, a woodsball field, and they own a X-Ball field too. Their X-Ball field uses the official X-Ball air bunkers. I took members from the Drake Paintball Club over there and every one of them said how awesome it is. The staff at DOA are VERY nice and helpful. There is almost always someone there that will help you with any gun problem. They aren't stuck on themselves like some field owners and employees are. DOA also has very knowledgable refs. The city field there is a blast too! Its pretty big and has some awesome bunkers.
Overall, DOA is a great field and I highly reccommend it!
This is the only field that i have played at other than my field and some of my friends.
This is an awesome place to play. I have played multiple tournaments there and have always left satisfied. The rec field is awesome and the speedball field is Sup'Air. I'de choose DOA over any field around here in a heartbeat. I have only played on the woodsball field once but it was pretty fun with bridges and stuff. The house on the Rec Field Is so awesome, Me and my cousin beat three of my friends from inside the house. Go there sometime and play in of their many tournaments You wont be sorry.
ICU indoor. both have the sup air field but doa has forest and speed ball
We go to DOA for my friends birthday every year and every year i leave staisfied. it has a great sup air field and a good regular field with a house in the middle. we like to go play capture the flag and we all hide out in the house and pick people off. i give it a nine because i havent played out of Iowa and am not good because of it.

I went there once with some friends. The field was cool and the obstacles were nice. I went there with pbreviewerX. This field had a building in the middle where 4 or so of us tried to hold off like 20 some people from killing us. It was great and i am going there May 10, 2003 for a 2 man tournament.
ACP Warfield, i liked DOA's rec ball field better than ACP's
DOA is a good field. They have a nice staff, and it is a well run field. Thier rec field has some small buildings on it which makes for an exciting game. They could have better facilities ie: bathrooms, food... Thier staging area is under a roof, and the rental equipment is adequate. They had pro-carbines and spyders.
