big pearl is the best place i have played at the air, paintballs and even the entry fee are very cheap and somtimes there is no entry fee and if u get there before 11 30 u get 2 tanks filled for free. i have played at both madison hieghts and glasgow but i mainly play at glasgow i go to almost every event and everytime i have there has always been a reff. I also have bought almost all my paintball stuff from them becuase its super cheap go to www.bigpearlpaintball.com if u want to see what they have for sell or when there events are and even pics and stats from the events
Dude below me if ur scared to get shot more than 3 times u shouldnt be playin paintball i have seen the pros on espn get shoot more than 3 times its almost impossible to control how many times ur gonna get hit epsicaly if the other guy is using auto gun
anyway i always have a good time there and its a great place to play paintball
Not realy any other good places but there is 1 other field(paintforest)
Directions to the Field:
On there site
i played in the iwo jima scenario and i rocked. i don't think there is a way to play any cheep er than this place. the refs are fair and don't yell at u if u accidentally shoot them, they under stand that if they r in the way they r guna get shot. the the scenarios wer really fun any there wer bonus objectives that u got after the game was started that wer REALLY fun! the field is really big . true woods ball. no speed ball per say but 1 plose bunker field. there is a cool tower system that just gets bigger every time i c it. and the owner is a nice guy, he will explain how just about any piece of paintball equipment works to you to help u fix it. he is a really fun guy (im not in love with him or anything)
they sponsored team (that usually refs big games but they play at regular events) r realy nice , they don't mind giving u tips and telling u the best way to attack different parts of the field. they like to c people improve so they don't mind teaching u. if u r new.

The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Field Use:
July 4th, 2006
Less than a month
Other Fields in the Area:
Painted Forest is better suited to newer players.
Please keep in mind that I played at the Madison Heights location only. I found all of the players to be very friendly and for the most part very helpful. As for the playing field I can't be so kind in my words. The area was heavily grown up with underbrush especially briars which made for poor playing conditions. The fort was little more than a pile of cut timber. Some of the senarios were interesting. Like protect the "General".
I found safety to be quite lacking since there were no Referee's. I was also peppered by a single player since there was no "three shot rule". Perhaps my opinion is somewhat clouded being a newbie to the sport, however being plastered doesn't encourage me to come out again. I was ready to leave at that point but stayed to play a few more games. It may have been better if there had been more players there (there were a total of 10). As for the prices they were very reasonable on paint and air fills (CO2 and Nitro) but you have to walk a mile from the playing field to the truck to get a refill. The field is better suited to the local folks with lots of experience than to new folks like myself. I wish them luck with their field but do not believe I will be going back.
I play a lot of woods ball all over, played a little at Splatter Mountain
Directions to the Field:
Two fields one on Possum Island Rd in Madison Heights, the other is on Rt130, just outside of Glasgow
Good fields, lot of bunkers. They make a video after every event that's usually pretty cool. They're in the processs of building some awesome forts that you can get up in and shoot out of. Not many places will let you do that because they're all scared of people falling out. They just had a tourney and I thought it went great. Pictures are also posted under http://bigpearlpaintball.com/news.html
There not really any speedball, but the Woodsball is great. They do a lot of timed scenario games. Some of the games are limited ball games, some people don't like that, but it keeps things competitive. You can't just outspend the next guy.
