First time paintballer, enjoyed the field and appreciated the focus on safety. Nobody was hurt, everybody had a good time. Some of the assistants joined our game and were really cool about it, being far more experienced they took it easy on us. We take a weeks vacation in Northern Minnesota every year and changed our routine to give paintball a go. If you have a group that is looking for a fun and challenging outing that you will talk about for weeks to come, this is it.
We did not actually play at their field. They brought all the equipment to our farm and we played here.
I liked the emphasis on safety. Games were fun and varied. We were playing at our farm and had a diverse group of players, from age ten through adult, and everyone enjoyed the day. I especially liked that ATP was willing to let the kids play and still made it fun for everyone. Even the teenagers were okay with playing with the smaller kids.
ATP was very sensitive to the fact that we were playing on our farm and they deferred to us often. I never felt like the day was getting out of our control, and yet it was obvious to everyone that ATP was in charge and they set the rules. Altogether, they made it a fun and challenging day that the men, women, teenagers and kids enjoyed. We're having All-Terrain Paintball back for our second annual paintball day.
Have not played on ATP's offical flied. Always have them come to our place and run the Games. They have great refing and alway changing thing up giving each time in the field a new twist. I highly recommend going to thier field. Also the opperator know the equipment very well and will help you in any way needed.
I was just there today a few hours ago with my youth group, this has been my second time playing at this course and it has been extremely fun both times. There are 3 different courses, the woods(fun to play capture the flag and such on) speed ball(good if you want to shoot lots of people/ use your paint) and the corn maze( not sure , drought made corn to short so we didn't get to use it, but what they told us of it it sounds like a blast). They inforce safety which is good just for the sake of the players well being, prices are good too. From my experiences playing at A.T.P i would highly recommend trying it out, chances are you will find out you like it and want to go back.

East of Frazee, MN. on Hwy 87. Mile marker 18 is just before driveway.
I own a limousine bus and took a birthday group up to play. Contact with the owner prior to the trip was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the game and had ideas for the group. I had two experienced people on the bus out of 16. All the others, like myself had never played.
The staff had rule, safety orientation. Very strict rules for weapons and play. This was good since I had teenagers and adults with. Rules were simple, easy to follow and geared towards safe fun. Equipment was in excellent working order and clean. Everything you needed was available if you asked. (well except the owners fancy gun that the kids were eyeing!!)
We played woods play, capture the flag, speedball, speedball capture the flag and lastly all out- no hold barred total innialation round. I tell you, this game was so fun, it could make friends out of enimies!!!
Courses were good. Forest was natural, with well groomed trails and LOTS of trees and ground cover. Everything was well marked. No one got LOST! Made hiding and ambushes easier and made the game more fun. Everyone was competeing to see who could hide the best! Rules of engagement were followed and having the refs follow around keeping a watchful eye really helped. (they even gave helpful pointers to players to help them out with strategies- no cheating though.)
Every one liked the speedball course. Very large area with tons of bunkers, wooded areas. The staff even got involved after some pressure from us. Boy did the kids go through paint!!
I liked the fact that after every game, the staff had us go to the safe area for breaks and drinks. More importantly, they talked with everyone in groups or individually and listened to how the games went. They gave constructive pointers, hints, feedback, ideas and encouragement to all and really stressed FUN!! There was NO arguing, fighting, bad mouthing from any of the players. They all worked as teams and helped each other on and off the field. It was that, that made the biggest difference in everyones experience!!
I liked it so much, I put All- terrain Paint Ball on my website for people to see and get ideas for their bus trips!
In the end, when the $ was paid...we were all surprised how relatively innexpensive it was for all the time we played (4-5 hours). Dinner at Applebees for just me was more than it cost to do this all day, even with extra purchaese of paint balls.
I found the course to be both physically and mentally challenging after a day worth, but well worth it! It was fun to hear all of the group on the return trip braging about the day. Everyone left unharmed, no accidents, and BIG SMILES!! They are already talking about returning next spring.
Thanks Bob and Lori for the great day!! I liked the picnic/ BBQ Ideas, nextime we need more people and more food!
I have played this course twice now but usually just played in other woods and friends places.
Directions to the Field:
Just take highway 87 north out of Frazee, MN... Then take that to mile marker 18 and take a right. Very easy to find!!
This was an awesome bachelor party setup. All the equipment was in great working order and the paint was relatively cheap. Safety is stressed so that everyone has a great time while still be safe. The woods play is extremely fun and the speed ball course is great!! All in all, All-terrain paintball is a great place for beginners as well as more experienced players. The staff is awesome and very knowledgeable about the game. Thanks for the great time!!
A great field to play on .thick woods open areas, trails are well defined, natural cover to crawl and play in. speedball field is good , good cover and and bunkers, played a few times when they travel to different areas.played with the national guard a couple of times that was ran good too.
safety is very important to them. the reffing is good ( Troy, Craig, Bob ,Jon )
This was the first time I have actualy played at a feild here in MN
back in July we had a bachaler part out there and we had a lot of fun, The field was well laid out with good cover and open areas that helped to make it fun, as well as chalenging. The group I was with played several game in the woods and then moved on to the speed ball course we had a blast and personaly the hole experiance was one of the best playing times I have ever had.

Great course setup. There were 3 courses, of which we played on 2. The forest course was nice for capture the flag and other more tactical games. The speedball course was great with plenty of space and bunkers. The best part of the whole experience was the service! Free water and few breaks made it a great time. The only negative that comes to mind (which is a very small one) is couple of balls breaking in the hopper. This could have been a result of a fall, or from not using the highest end paint (though, that would have made the cost go up!!). Very inexpensive good time!
All Terrain Paintball is a great course to play at wether you are a veteran or a noob at the game of paintball. They stress safety which is extremely important and they also stress FUN, which is what the game is basically about. They have forest paintball which is like the vietnam war, or thats wat it seemed like to me, and a speedball course. This course is good if you like close non stop firing, unlike forest ball which is won by the team with the best strategy about 90% of the time. The prices here are EXTREMELY cheap, so dont worry about costs because it would be more expensive just to buy paintballs to play in your back yard. So if you want a good course to play at that isn't expensive and is great fun, All Terrain Paintball is the place to go!!
