I think that Battle Zone is great. No other field compares with Battle Zone. The field layout here is awesome.
This was my first time playing here and I will never go anywhere else to play unless I have a tournament to play. I have only played speedball a few times and the staff helped me to improve my game. Also they have one heck of a woodsball course it is challenging yet it is a lot of fun. Since the weather was a little bit cold i didn't get to play on the airball field but as soon as it warms up and the air bunkers and ready I will be on a very regular basis.
i went to this field the first time about 5 months ago, and it is still my favorite field. the refs there are awesome, and everyone there is really friendly. the speed ball field is the best ive ever played in. gravel for slidin. the woodsball field is also really good. its a long course, so a lot of the paintballs you will fire wont even make it to the end. a tree fell onto one of the castles recently, so its currently out of service. overall I would reccomend going there. the fields are very nice, and so are the refs
Mohawk, 68 Calliber, Splatterpark and many more in Ohio.
Battlezone Paintball Park in Mansfield, Ohio is one of the best I have ever visited. One of the quality's that makes this one so unique is the "hometown" atmosphere. When you go to Battlezone, the people there make you feel at home. Not only by the service that they give you but the chili-dogs. Not only are they free with your visit to Battlezone, they are also very good, by far some of the best I have ever had. With their amazing speed ball court and their almost five acre's of wooded play area, Battlezone Paintball Park is one of the best in Ohio. When you visit Battlezone, you will receive one of the most enjoyable and memorable paintball experiences of your life, I know I did, and they will make you feel at home and that they really care about you visit to their facility. I recommend very much putting this park at the top of your list to visit.
Battle Zone is great! They are sincere people and only want to help. Every time I go, i talk with many of the employees and have a great time. If you are within .45min of this field i would suggest using it. Once the weather starts getting warmer again i will be there once a week. Great Owner, works on the field constantly and is improving the field all the time. Great speedball, and woods play. Soon they will have a hyperball field installed and ready along with a urban assult village scenario field.
Try it out! I give it an A+ Highly recommended.
This is a great field the speedball field is nice needs work but still nice (new bunkers) and i do not really care for the gravel on the speedball field it tears your pads up. the netting is safe. the woods is really nice.
speed ball field is alright
woods is nice
they sell low end paint for a high price
i would also suggest not playing a tourney there because there ussually is no prizes and they have no problem selling u 30 dollar cryptic for 55
i would also suggest not making BZ a place to have a big group outing they will make any deal with u on the phone but when u get there they will change it

Splatter Park is more expensive but offers a little better experience. But Battle Zone is still a must for paintball players. The experience is amazing and is only eclipsed because of "The Village" being a one sided game.
I have been planning paintball outings for approximately 3 years. When you plan a paintball activity you always run into problems with the park you are attending. Not with this one. The only problem I ran into was a feeling of guilt because of a bad turnout of players.
We reserved the park for DeMolay, a non-profit organization that seeks to make young men into leaders and generally have a good time (see www.DeMolay.org). Throughout the process of the planning we encountered few problems. They were willing to help in anyway they could and gave great group rates.
I had told them to expect between 100 and 150 people. They did. They chronoed the guns for us before we got there and were completely prepared. They got extra rentals and purchased 150 cases of paint just in case we had a lot of people. They created an agenda of games so that they flowed smoothly. They had enough refs present to control the group. They put up their end of the bargain.
We, on the other hand, did not reach the expected crowd. We only had 34 players. One would think that when you expect 100 and only have 30 that they would be upset. They were not. They simply were disappointed and continued with game play.
"The Village" was a little disappointing. I thought the "houses" would actually be houses with rooms. I thought it would be set up more like a town. In truth it was still a good field. The layout favored the team in the bunkers but still left just enough opportunity for the attackers to get in and give a great fight.
"Speedball" was awesome. One of the best courses I have ever encountered. Inflatable barricades on gravel gave the ultimate opportunity for sliding around to avoid shots. It was especially fun in a one-on-one experience that I was able to partake in. Nothing has come close to beating the rush of running through enemy fire only to slide to safety while taking out a foe in the process.
"Fort-to-fort" was very good as well. An uphill battle for one team. Going up against a two story fortress. Plenty of protection on the way and just enough space between the barricades for that adrenaline rush to come. Was truly an even match between sides. Both ends had winners and both ends had losers. Advance, Advance, Advance. A very long course where those first few shots won't even make it to the other end.
A great time-
I recently played on this field with my team (Shadow Company) we play strictly scenario ball, and this field had every type of structure to accommodate us. They have a town in the woods perfect for tactical training. A field with two castles and bunkers spread across the field. The refs, were laid back and let us play what we wanted, how we wanted. But they still made sure that safety was strictly enforced. The prices were good for their rentals, and their paint price was reasonable. Their rental packages were well maintained and in perfect working order, so there were no issues with broken gear on the field. They have a nice staging area were you can lock up any thing you don't want to carry onto the field with you, and a place were you can clean your goggles after you get them covered with paint. All and all the field was very nice, and I plan on making monthly trips out to it with as many people as I can.

Splatterpark, Action Sport Indoor, Field of Fun(gone), Paintball Precinct(I miss it) and anywhere I can
*****New Update! 10/31/04*****
I like 68 Caliber, mostly because it has that oh so beautiful allowance to BYOP. This is awesome not only because you can bring the paint you like to shoot to the field, but because it saves money.
NOW! Battlezone has BYOP!!!!! It's a $10 field fee to do it, but that's it. A great price! And unlike 68 Caliber, Battlezone offers a far superior woodsball experience. Now if they could just get more players to check it out, I mean Sunday's are deserted! For all you speedballers, BYOP is like a godsend, and the speedball arena, a fairly nice one, is not being used on Sunday. Come on, play 68 Caliber Saturday, then Battlezone Sunday. They both have great prices on paint, but you can bring your own if you like!
And yes, they have Comp Air, $1 per 1000psi, or $10 all day air. It's friendly, fun and closer to civilization and I-71 than 68 Caliber.
I say this because this is my favorite field, and it has just made the BYOP provision. Now it is superior! IT JUST NEEDS MORE PLAYERS!!!!
CHECK IT OUT!!!!
*****End 10/31/04 update *****
This is now my regular field, even though it's pretty far away, (i'm in Columbus). The prices are great! And the players here are rec ballers with the normal assortment of guns.
You won't be outmatched by Angels here like an indoor place, and you won't have to walk forever to get to a field like SplatterPark.
The beauty of this field is it's simplicity, just two fields and a speedball arena, but you get to play many more games per day than SplatterPark and I think the field reminds me of the way paintball used to be.
Sure they have forts, and the deep woods field has added house/bunkers which make for a cool counter-terrorist feel when clearing buildings. But they also have jockeying for position and beginners learning the sport in a un-intimidating way.
Give it a try, you'll see. It's a pretty cool field to know about.

i have been to battle zone for two years now. I find it to be on of the best fields i have ever played at. everyone there is extremely nice.they have one of the best woods fields.
speed ball is on the small side but it gets the job done.The park sells almost everything you would need if something wer to break on your gun. If you rent a gun from them they are very well maintained.They now have a new village course.The village has tons of bunkers and hiding spots. In the woods course there is a castle with two floors.It's great for attack and defend.they also host speed ball tournaments and a woods tournament. They also have a night war every last Saturday of every month.I recommend that anyone go to Battle Zone because it is one of the best park that i have ever been to.
I've been playing at battlezone for about 2 years now and i have had a blast every time. all the other ones that i played at dont even come close to battlezone. The refs and staff there are very frendly and treat you like famly. I suggest that every one should come and try it out its the best!
