This is a small place. it is great if you want to play a little and just hang out, or if you want to practice for that tournament coming up. When I went their it was my first time paintballing. I thought it was big but Then i saw some other places and thought how small this place is. It has a woods ball feild wich is more bunkers than woods. It has two speedball feilds. one small one bigger than the other. the smaller one is great for one on one.
The feild has no refs,and their is uselly one person working their. you just start a game yourself. the prices are CHEAP!!!! 15 dollers for feild fees and that comes with all day air. 10 dollers per 500 paintballs, 40 for 2000.
In conclusion, if you want to go paintballing without having to worry about competion, this is the place to go.
i havent really played any other fields other than this. this was my first field and i loved it. i went there with my girlfriend and we had a blast. i also experienced my first tournament there.
Directions to the Field:
heading from NOVA area, 95south til exit 118 take a right off the exit on your right hand side before you hit route one
Though its not the top of a line field it is a good environment to learn it and have a good time and the people are really nice i have never had a problem with anyone or anything. i play there regularly and enjoi it everytime. did my first tournament there and hope to do more. 3 fields: bigger airball, smaller airball, woods. play alot of the airball. i enjoi the place and will continue to go back.
Total Eclipse is a pretty small field, 2 speedball fields and one woods type field. The bunkers there are very bad and some are made out of wood for airball! If you fill them up they will deflate after about 2 games so you have to fill them up about every 10 mins or so. The woodsfield is ok, its got alot of bunkers and houses to get in its a pretty fun time all the people that are usually down there are pretty nice and easy to get along with. Alot of the people that play speedball there are jerks and overshoot you alot but some are nice. Some people there will help you out but some will not. There arent any refs, and the staff really isnt too helpfull. There is barely any grass on the fields and there are rocks in alot of places. There is usually only one preson running the whole field because the other is usually out doin stuff and not paying attention to the field. the prices there are ok i guess, but they shouldnt really even charge entry fee because you have to do all the work your self. But as far as paint goes theres pretty good prices. If your looking to buy a gun or any other gear i WOULD NOT recommend coming here everything besides paint is way way over priced. So overall i wouldnt really recommend coming here unless you going to play woods, but as far as speedball goes its not really to good.
There are not that many fields there but the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They also have a good selection of merchandise including paint all at reasonable prices. Its aslo not very crowded when you get there, makeing a very good place to go if you just want to play with your friends. Located right off of I-95 or Rt1 it is vey easy to get to.
only in friends back yard behing red rose village, and besides chancellor gardens, off of harrison road.
The place here is about perfect size and popular for me. The folks who work here are very very friendly and will help u out. There's a little stagnent water but they are fixing it I think. The speedsball course is a little too small but I dont prefer speedsball that much and there "woods" course is really more of a wooden bunkers but I still like it. Rumors has it that the owner is trying to rent some land beside it but the person who owns that land wont let him rent it though. This is good for newbies cuz they will help u out. I liked it and they have the cheapest prices ive seen besides online. I like it. But thats my opionion so if u dont like it oh well.
Total Eclipse was alright. It didn't really impress me and didn't impress the team that i play with. There refs aren't to helpful yet they r more annoying thatn anything. They wanted to face my team and we killed them LOL. But alls they did was complain not the 2 big guys but the little short one and he didn't even play fair alls he did was wipe. That is the info.
Well, Total Eclipse is a field located about 15-20 drive south of Fredericksburg right off of Route 1. Its in the area of Thornburg, I dont know why they called it anywhere else. This field has only 3 fields on it which is kind of a drag on the weekends when the tournament teams come to practice and you can only use the 2 smaller fields. They have 2 airball fields a big one and a small one. The only thing bad about both airball fields is that their bunkers are not very tall so you pretty much have to crouch the whole game. Then, their woodsball fiels is fairly big, it is about the size of both of the airball fields combined. But, I would definately say that one side is more favored. Also, in the back of the woodsball field there is so much mud that one time I actually lost my shoe running to a bunker back there. I had to hop back over on one foot to pick it up. Total Eclipse Paintball used to be $10 for all day air, but now they only give you 2 fills for $10, and you have to pay $15 for all day air. I really only have a couple of things to say, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Why, would you up your price when you have done nothing to upgrade your fields!! They think that they are some awesome paintball field now even though it is as it has always been. Another rule that they have just instated is field paint only. I think this is very unfair seeing that they just upped their prices also. They are not even close to being a pro feild so I dont think that they should have done this. Also, I have noticed that if you are a less experienced player witha worse gun you will get lit up, because about 75% of the people who play there, have Autocokcers or above. So people like me, even when I upped my Piranha with all of the upgrade i could fit on it, I could still only get 1 person or less a game. Overall, I think that it is an advantage to me, since it is close, but I would much prefer to go to Soggie Bottom for the same price as this one.

I've played at Soggie Bottom, Savage, and Master Blasters paintball and they were good, but not the same. Soggie had to small of bunkers and feilds, plus there was no woods courses either so I got shot to easy there in speed ball and couldn't play anything else. Savage paintball was ok, but I couldn't find enough bunkers. It felt as if everytime I ran I was going to bunker someone or hang the flag. Master Blasters paintball was also ok, but it was way to muddy do to all the rain they get. Everytime I went to run I slipped everywhere and got out. It would have been fine if it hadn't happened everytime and if it wasn't against a 5 year old with a $20 gun from wal-mart.
Total Eclipse Paintball. Two great feilds, speed ball and woods, both with the space and enough bunkers. This place is most friendly when it comes to paintball. I showed up one day to check it out and I loved it. Everyone that worked there was fun to play with and talk to. If you don't know about paintball then you have to come visit them. Anyways, the woods course is one of the best I've played. It has full size bunkers and small bunkers. All with a little shelter to help protect and with full. It's at least half an acre of non-stop woods action of real life. Good for fun types of "games" u might say like protect a single person or so on....Kind of like police training, but in the woods. Then there is the speed ball course. Enough bunkers so that you don't get shot to easy, but not so many so that there is a challange. They have "full body size" bunkers and "half body sized bunkers." Basicaly it consists of a snake about 3 quaters of the feild, eagles, small and large pyramids, dirito's, taco's, and lay-downs. This is how the feild was when I last played and I'm sure they would change it if you asked them. Overall this place is the best for paintball. Great prices and deals. Great feilds. Great people. GREAT PAINTBALL!!!!!
I havent played at any other field but i have been to other fields during tournoments and i have seen the field. I have been to TMX and Soge bottom and i like Total Eclispe better. Tmx's field is to rocky as for Total eclise's feild isnt. It has a couple of little rock spots but nothing big. Soge bottom's feild is to small and it is easy to run out of bounce but Total Eclise isnt the biggest field in the worlld but i think it is just perfect.
Total Eclise is a great place to play. The owner is kind, he will help you when your gun has a problem, and he treats you with great respect. I like Total Eclispe alot. Thier prices arent the lowest but they arent the highest either. They have a great amount of guns to choose from. They range form beginner guns to tournoment guns. They always have a gun of the week too. Total Eclispe is a great place to play and if some one asked to to play for them and not Total Eclispe i probally would say no. So go to Total Eclispe and play.
Not the best field around but its still a fun place to play. Its unorganized which is fine with me because their paintball teams are awesome anyways. The refs their are really cool. They'll give you pointers and stuff to help you out. Low prices. Its free to play and I think $10 for all day air. only downfall is that only the airball field is fun. It might just be me being used to the open woods but even their woods/fort seems tiny. All in all its a fun place to spend the day with your friends.
