Can't say I've used their field, just their proshop once.
As stated above, I can't say I've played at the adrenaline field, but definitely have been to their proshop. I was there with my brother because he was looking around for his first paintball marker. When I was there, first thing I noticed was the very understocked shop. It had few of a lot of things. The markers that were there, only about half were for sale, the rest were display. The person that was helping us, did not seem very educated in paintball, and was a little rude to my brother when he tested a gun out by commenting "he shoots like a girl."
I'd imagine that the Adrenaline field would have all the same safety rules as Flagswipe's field and that their refs would have at least some experience in paintball. Alas, I cannot give an accurate rating since i haven't played there, so to be generous, I'll give them a 5/10 for the field. As for the proshop, I was actually expecting the employee to be more helpful, not as rude and not pressure us into a sale to make him look good
great field! i went for about 5 or 6 walk ons and a mega game. The refs and people who attended were all great, congrats to adrenaline for hosting the first and best mega game i have ever attended. The only gripe i have is the price of paint! i know its the same price as all the other local fields ($100-2000, $35-500, $10-100). It's hard to play often when paint prices are that high... but apart from that the field is great! They also have a proshop in london which i've been to a few times, i haven't seen the new "huge" one though :( considering their proshop is the only one i've been to i cant really compare it to others but i can say that if you need something and they don't have it, they will do their best to get it for you. I would rate this field a 9 just because nothing is perfect and paintballs could be cheaper.
15 minutes from london-see webpage
Saftey-the saftey at the field is amazing, everyone regardless of experince has to particicpate in a saftey seminar. The reffs are well trained, and have tons of expereince in speedball and woodsball and can handle any situation
Fields-The wooded fields are the best i've seen, and i've played all over north america. Thick trees, great running paths, good ground cover. Fields play well, with sniper towers and many two story buldings it's great, you might even see a tank or two. A new 5 acre wooded field open summer 2009 adding even more great bush to play in.
Hours- Standard paintball opereation hours
Prices- I've found in the last few years that the field and pro shop have always had great pricing.
Rules- standard paintball opereating rules...enforced well
Proshop- The proshop grew at the end of November 2008 and is now the largest proshop in town. With a very bright and professional atmosphere it's very welcoming. The selection is incredable......you want it, they seem to have it.
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Field Use:
September 20th, 2008
More than 5 years
Other Fields in the Area:
Flagswipe Paintball- MUCH BETTER
Area 51- Smaller but a fun little field
FlagRaiders- Pretty good, lousy staff
Cameron Speedway- Also very good
Directions to the Field:
just check the website
Well I played Adrenaline's outdoor a couple of times over the last few years but moved away from them. I went back this fall to give them another shot-
The Field- is pretty good, nothing special. Flagswipe's outdoor definitely smokes them.
The staff- has never been any good. Sorry. Everytime I go the refs seem half interested and uncaring.
The paint- was good
Overall the field gets 4/10, half an effort towards customer service would go a long way here...
They also have a ProShop if you want to call it that in London. It's tiny and has like 4 guns on the wall, three of them used. They don't have much stock and the prices are a joke. Their staff is just a bunch of old guys, no certification, and of the big lines they only really carry Tippmann.
The proshop is like a 1/10 or something.
Having played paintball in and around London for 5 years now, I'd say Adrenaline is a waste of your time. I go every once in a while but have yet to be impressed.
GO TO FLAGSWIPE, THEY ARE WAY BIGGER AND WAY NICER
Flagswipe (Indoor, Outdoor)(Adrenaline is MUCH better!)
(A couple in Toronto, Barrie, Kitchener, and Niagara region.)
I have been going to this field for that past couple years, and it has been more exciting everytime I go.
Greg, and the rest of the staff are awsome. There nice, friendly, helpful, and also give hints and advice to new comers.
The layout of the field is great, they have a speedball sort of area, well as many other game types within the forest. The games in the forest of great, and the terrain is awsome.
The only thing that kinda sucks would be the prices of paint. But there prices in the store are much cheaper.
Area 51, Tilsonburg -Way better, but a little smaller.
Flagswipe, Aylmer- AMAZING FIELD- HIGHLY RECOMEND
Flagswipe, London Great for speedball, or winter paintball
Sgt. Splatters, TO -Try it out if your in the area!
Directions to the Field:
See their site- directions are included.
Safety- This field had many safety rules just like all other paintball fields.
Unfortunately, the referees seemed to be untrained the day I went, but no one was hurt, and thats all that matters.
Hours of Operation- Anytime you would like to play a game
Deposit required, like all other fields.
Prices- A little more expensive than other fields in the area
I also found the paint quality to be horrible in my gun (2K3 Cocker, USP Sidearm)
Rules- Well run through (the guy who read them seemed to know what he was doing- I wish he was on the field to watch the other refs
Refs- I don't know if they were new, but they seemed to miss alot.
They were all friendly though.
Players- Alot of younger ones the day I went.
Facilities- Staging area is good, and pretty close to fields that we used.
I had a chance to ref on this field during one of their first few games and I certainly looked like a good field from my point of view though I haven't yet had a chance to play on it. The field had some good ideas to make interesting fields and the Saving Private Ryan boat is definately a good experiance.
That said, much of the field seems oriented towards the fast paced, speedball type play and I am a little biased because I preferr to slog through the woods and choose my shots carefully.
Prices are good, refs are experianced, and the fields provide some interesting games.
I had a chance to play at Adrenaline recently. I was very impressed with the field layout, both the staff and owner were very professional, and ran a helpful, informative safety briefing before the start of the day. The field itself was very nicely laid out, and a ring road running to ALL the fields was a great idea. It was less than a 5 minute walk from the ammo/registration shack, to the ones at the back. There was no Mt Everest to climb when we were done playing like the other local field. The town they had set up was a blast, and the towers added some elevation to the game. I have played other fields in the area, but was ALWAYS treated with attitude from both staff and other players. I was very glad to see that the Adrenaline guys actually wanted my group to have a good time and a fun day. Other fields gave the impression that we were interupting thier precious day by playing there, and were only interested in our MONEY! Adrenaline was a Refreshing change for the better. Good Job Guys........WE WILL BE BACK AGAIN!

I was out to the new field on Sunday afternoon for the walk-on day. The new field is AWESOME.
Built on the sandy soil of Melbourne, Ontario, the new Adrenaline field has great drainage, this translates into a nice, dry field. The field off Elginfield Rd. was a mudhole for days after a rainfall, but this should no longer be a problem on the sand. Having spent many of my growing-up days at my grandparents farm in Mt. Brydges, I can attest that the soil is mostly dried out within 12 hours of a hard rain. YAY! No more black muck! (Well...almost none. I stepped out of my shoes in a small gully on the beachhead scenario. I should have known enough to wear my boots.) There is also plenty of underbrush, so that ghilly hat/suit you have been dying to try out will actually be useful. I got pegged three times by people I never even saw, and I almost stepped on one guy. Very cool. On the downside, bring some bugspray. The mosquitos (read 'little pricks') love the underbrush and were pretty aggressive. This is, of course, normal for a wooded area, but the mosquito population should die down soon, as Greg had the field treated to disrupt the mosquito's larval stages. Give it a week or so and there should hardly be any little blood suckers.
The scenario setups are pretty slick. There are several smaller fields set-up, with some of my favourites being the Urban Field, the Tank Capture Field and the "Saving PVT. Bryan" Field (beachhead), although, I would like to see it renamed "Juno Beach" in honour of the Canadian Veterans who helped liberate Normandy (Today, of course being the 61st anniversary of D-Day). Even given the fact that I am not a fan of speedball, the tournament-grade air bunkers are very nice.
The rental markers (Titans) are in very good shape, and they even have a few with double triggers. Of the 600 Balls I went through, I only chopped 3, and I'm pretty sure that those were from holding the marker at a poor angle.
They do not have debit or CC at the field yet, but I am told that they will when their office trailer is all setup. For now, just hit the ATM on your way out to the field.
Overall, I am very impressed with the new field. Kudos to Greg and Tom for making the move.
