My nephew, brother-in-law, and I had a blast! The staff was real friendly, the 3 courses were fun and the refs were great by helping the new guys out with little tips and hints each time. Our experience here has turned us on to this great sport an I plan on gettin some gear now and I will visit this place each time I visit georgia.
Very professional staff! Courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful. The courses are great but the people make the experience. We had a group of about 45 people from 4 different Choi Kwang Do Martial Art schools at Carnage today and everyone left happy after our day of play. Cannot wait to return.
I had a great experience at this place. The refs are cool and they do a good job. We played on a few filelds throughout the day, I think they called them "The Swamp,"Hamburger Hill", and "The Castle." All the fields are well put together and fun to play on. Some of the bunkers are getting a little beat up and could use a little reconditioning. The prices are fair compared to other fields in the area I have been to, and you can use your own paint which arkenstone didn't allow while they were open. In conclusion, good fields, good refs, decent prices. It would be cool if they had a couple more fields but they have done a great job with what they have.
Alight well i showed up at around noon, went to the little house to sign in and pay. I brought my own paint that I had from my last outing from another field. I told the lady at the desk (didnt get her name) that I did not need air fee (running 12 grams) just byo paint fee and field fee. She informed me that it was bundled together so I would have to pay anyway. Kinda sucks that I'm getting charged for somthing that I don't need nor want.
I paid my $27 and was on my way down to the field.
Got down to the staging area, had to go down two flights of stairs and saw a bunch of tables and the little fill station and chrono station. Go to chrono my gun and it took a while because its a little dusty if you know what I mean. There were a abundance of refs i saw around 10 or so, which was good to see. Played a few games all the players seemed cool. There was a birthday party going on, they didnt want to play with anyone but their party. I played with about 8 other guys though.
Ryan the ref seemed really cool and was paint checking people like crazy, which was a major plus.
While I was chrono'in I was shooting high then low, then major low, one of the younger refs came over and asked what i was shooting at I told him its major low...220. He just said thats fine just go play. I was kinda shocked and just kept tunning till it got to 265-270 where I normally shoot at.
Another thing I didn't like is the field allowing full auto and ramping, I dont know if this is the standard now, but I wounldn't think it should be allowed for walk on play. Its one thing to be able to shoot fast another thing to just be able to hold the trigger down and blast.
pros-lots of refs, good big red chrono, fills both co2 and hpa, paint prices
cons-just a couple what seemed to be underexpirenced refs,ramping/fullauto, have to pay field and air fee regardless if you need it or not.
Overall a so-so field, I've just been once so I don't know if this weekend was just a lax weekend or what. I will probly go again but not a awesome field.

I was pleasantly surprised with the experience, that I had at this field. You won't find a better group of people, that want nothing more than for the players to have a good time.
The field is about 3/4 woods and 1/4 open. The wooded area is like a speedball field in the woods.....lots of bunkers but also alot of visability. That being said, there are areas of brush and room to move around. In the open area, they have constructed a castle, that is fun to defend. This setup is good for both the new player and the experienced. I have seen a team out there playing and watched some newbs interact with them, in a positive way. No Rambo's here.
The refs are great and really watch out for the players safety. The owners, go out of their way to help everyone......especially by keeping the prices affordable. When signing in, you can order lunch for a nominal fee (pizza or subs).
Safe place to play
Inexpensive (as far as paintball can be)
My friends and I will continue to visit this field.

i have been paintballing for a couple of years and i LOVE this field it has everything you need the castle is aswome, the refs are cool and they give you everything you need to play. me and my team practice there all the time. ask for skyler or ryan to ref you there there awsome. so go and and have fun.
When I arrived, i got the rules and chronographed, and got on the field. 3 fields- hamburger hill, creek, and castle. Castle is hard to defend. Three people on offense took out ariund 10 on defense within 30 secs without losing any players. Overall, I love this field and go there every other week. Oh yeah, and he refs always help me out, and are really nice.
Nitro/classic - nitro is better upkeep, but refs are decent. Classic is average.
Directions to the Field:
Safety is the main key there. They chrono about 280, but the rules are great for first timeys. The time I went, it just rained and slopes were very slippery, but overall a great expeirence for a veteran.No one out powers the little tikes, every ref is highly trained vets and know how to referee a course no matter the group size. Unlimited Co2/nitro varies from 15$-20$, but great ! - UNLIMITED. paint there sells decent, but bring your own. Good field for beginners, will return with my squad next weekend!
* note if your going to rent, get there when the course opens- 10 am!
Safety: The refs are concerned with safty all the time they tell you not to stand next to the entrance to the field until they are ready to go out. Having said that the "DOOR" is a space in the netting that you walk through and are immediatly on a woodsball field.
Fields: There are three fields. Two woodsball and a Castle. One woods ball field is set up so that eacvh side has a high side and a low side. The other is set up so that one side must climb the hill to attack the other. The castle is kind of a loppsided battle in favor of the attackers, they give the attackers two rockets (nerf balls) that if thrown into the center of the fort it kills everyone inside. Very hard for the defenders to win.
Prices: Alright for a day $20
Went out to play and field had a scenario day. Used all fields and all obstacles . Teams split up nicely with no team heavily outguning the others. TheyhHave built a castle that can be attacked from all fields. Lots of movement and lots of fun. Refs were great, lots of experienced players that helped. It was very very cold but had a lot of fun. Great day and will definitely go back!
