omg i dont wanna do this again check out my review for proving gorunds if u rly wanna know
ok first things first this is an awesome field lets get that straight, all the fields are great and they dont suck . now onto the refs yes they are young they are lazy but they do care about safety and they trust u to not be a-holes and let u chrono ur gun on ur own but however, if u r shooting hot depending how u will be asked to chrono again or if rly high u will be kicked off teh field and i hear about people complaining about how the quest team wipes yes well they used to they kicked a bunch of people off teh team cuz they were cheaters and since then they have been rly strict about wiping and dont say they havent changed because my good friedn and his dad are on the team and they are very honest people. also when the quest team get hit sumtimes and the ref wipes it that is because depending on how big the other team is they give them 1-5 reincarnations and if u dont hear that when they say tit then i would be suprised too that they stayed in but ask the refs whats happening if u dont understand they will be nice if ur not an a-hole to them. also it is the best lunch u will ever get for $5. this field is just awesome i cant explain it it just is go here and respect staff and they will respect
I would not recommend playing at this field for the following reasons in order of importance:
1- The Ref's allow team Urban Quest to cheat and wipe paint ALL the time, like it's expected. I have personally seen it happen over 10 times, some instances include the referee wiping the paint off the player, after he gets hit and walks off the field, then allowing him back in the game. PaLEASE!!
2- It's expensive, every time I go to the owner to pay for entry its like im doing him a favor. He is a greedy jerk and doesn't care about running a good business.
$20.00 to get on
$7.00 for air
$5.00 for lunch if you want it. (it's worth it thou)
=$32.00 to pay with a bunch of whippers wearing Jerseys!!
3- The fields are poorly designed (too skinny right next to a dirt road) and one side always has an advantage over the other.
4- The team guys are shoot HOT (first they always walk away from the crono with it beeping and then go right into a game) then they OVERSHOOT all the newbies.
I've played there on and off for years, the only field that they had worth playing on they took down. They used too have an indoor field that was small but very playable. If ur looken for a quick fix i would maybe try it out.
PS. Bring ur own paint, they charge up the wazoo for paint, air fills are $7 for all day.
Pretty easy to get to field that you've got to drive thru a strawberry patch to get to (the smell was GREAT during the season, unlike the cow sh!t smell out at SC Village).
- Great lunch at a great price... the last time i was there, $5 bucks got a tri-tip/chicken bbq with all the fixins
- lots of fields
- competant airsmith
- the weather during the summer is ~20-30 degrees cooler than all the other places in the Los Angeles area
- most of the fields are really narrow
- the refs werent all that excited to be there
I played here for my first year of paintballing, and liked it because i didn't go anywhere else. They never chrono the guns, i saw people shooting at 350!! They have people shooting frozen paintballs sometimes. Lots of people wipe, and one of the refs is like 12 years old. They have good shade and some of the guys are pretty cool. You just have to watch out for when the urban quest team plays with the walk-ons and newbs cause they will bunker at least half the team!
This field is very good but could use a little improvement. Theres 7 fields right now with 3 being speedball forms and 4 being other. As far as the people working there being mean and whatever eles thats very false. The people joke around a little, thats it. I don't understand all these people saying they act stupid and whatnot when they don't. The enviroment is OK. They could use some netting around the fields. They have good techs at the field which is a plus. And i don't know why that guy said they don't fill passed 3000PSI when they fill me up at 4000 PSI all the time. Even if i have 2000 left. Overall i love the fields and the people are great. Also the food is insanley good.
California Paintball Park (wasn't too great but way better than urban quest)
The only good things I can think of was that the pizza we had was good and it was fun shooting all the guys who thought they were all that. not that I am all that but just that they aren't. I was using red paint and wasn't enlightened on why fields don't allow red paint at the time but I used it all day and they never said anything, I got there a little late and never had to chrono my gun, I later did it just cause I didn't wanna shoot through somebody and found out I was shooting 312, I turned it down but nobody knew, I coulda cranked it as high as I want, but I didn't. it just tells you a little something about their concern for safety...The fields were alright, we played 4 different fields, a couple of really stupid ones, long and skinny, I hated em. we also played a woodlands one, that was pretty fun, and a good speedball one that was the best. After we had lunch I ended up shooting another guy who was on the team when they finally said something about red paintballs, after one of the refs had used up about 15 of my paintballs, no joke, he finally determined I was using red (says something about intelligence). so I was told I couldn't use em anymore I went and asked the head guy why or to find out if I could exchange em, cuz thats all I had, I ended up getting chewed out. so I stole some of my friend's paint and played a game or two when we all just decided to leave. I didn't pay that day and I'll never go back to that field if I have to pay.
This is a field with a lot of potential, but some things are going to have to change. The main thing is the attitude of the employees. There are several posts that talk about that already and I agree with them. Their refs seem like they would rather be somewhere else. Seems like if you are not one of the locals that hangs out there, you are not part of the "in" crowd.
I have been there several times with groups and on one occaision we had a group of about 20 guys for a party and lunch was included in our package. Once lunch time came around we were told that lunch was NOT included in our package. (Our package was purchased elsewhere). We had all been served except for one of my friends. So there we were, nineteen of us eating and one not. The guy behind the counter absolutely refused to serve one more lunch to our group. This was a mix up between the store where we bought the group package and Urban Quest, but as you can see, customer service was not their priority. We all ended up sharing our lunches with the last guy.
As far as the fields, they seem to be maintained very little. Most of the barricades have seen better days. Last time I was there, you couldn't enter the rooms in the village area because there was a danger that the walls could fall - that's what one of their refs told us.
My advice? Dump the attitude. Better customer service. A little paint, safety netting, and a few nails once in a while.
