They only had one field when i went cause they were reseeding the other one but the field they did have was nice the prices were good and they had tents and benches and stuff the staff and people there were nice and they had good paint but the field was all dirt and sand so i give it a 9
I was traveling through Florida in May and had the bug to play paintball (as always).....as luck would have it I brought my Paintball gear with me. I went to ECE's store to ask were the closest field was. It was a Friday so not mush was going to be open. So we talked awhile about local p/b, turns out they played in the same division in Orlando as a few friends of mine. Maybe 10 minutes later they told me about their own ECE field but it's only open Sat. and Sun. What I like about these guys, they NEVER push the ECE field on me, because I made it clear that Friday was the only day I had to play. I was never up for playing in an emply field with some guy that has a fill station so I decided to wait for Sat. Thankfully I did.
This is a very young field, 2 air ball field but both are layed out very well. The grass has not grown in yet but the sand was a lot nicer then the hard rocky ground I play on in South Texas. I can't really compare pricing for you but It is Field paint only, so it will be more expensive then some other fields.
I was told more fields and shaded staging will be added. All new fields go throught this growing stage. I suggest talking to the owners and/or managers about any concerns you have. These guys really seem to be in this for the long haul......they will listen.
I do suggest you guys give this field a chance. For the rec baller go on Sat. but for Tourny player go on Sunday. I rated it a 7 only due to the "current" lack of staging. I'm sure the next time I visit it will be a 9.

To start off... there r not enough tables and that is horrible... ants everywhere... and sand sucks... the fields r outside so if it rains u r shyt out of luck... the fields r of nice size, the bunkers r nice, and so is the staff, but if u have a crappy layout than is doesnt matter how nice the field is..
You should try out chaos .. its 15 for entry and air.. and 45 or 60 for a case a paint.. and the 45 dollar paint is heat.

I felt compelled to write my own review after reading 98customFlat's ludicrous statements. I honestly have to say that I'm not sure he even knows what field he's writing about because in the time that I've been playing at ECE, I've had nothing but a positive experience.
The site consists of two sizeable airball fields which are specifically laid out to accommodate two types of players; tournament and recreational players. The tournament field has wider lanes and longer runs making it a challenging and competitive field for the serious paintballers. For new and recreational players, the second field is setup with plenty of bunkers so that new players can move around freely and experience the game at a more fun pace. The ECE staff manages both fields effectively with a minimum of two referees per field. In the 6 months that I've been playing at ECE, I've yet to see the field not being properly managed by ECE staff so I'd have to say that 98customFlat is completely off-base in his comments.
As for the costs, I'm not sure why 98customFlat paid $91 considering that all day entry is $15 and a case of paint is $65. Having played at several fields over the last 5 years, I can tell you that ECE's pricing is consistent with other fields and certainly not out of the norm. They've also start offering a new line of paint for $50 per case to help the budget conscious paintballer.
Overall, I like this field because of its proximity to my home, the attentiveness of the staff, the professionally run fields and competitive pricing.
Hey, if you have never been to ece;s field then you will be scarred becuase you do not know what you are doing. You should sit and watch the other people on the chrono and you should see how other people do it first.
once you get the hang of it you will love the field.
its a grat field, every1 is very nice, and friendly, they will answer any question you ask for them.
The field is great if i was you i would go on the field, go tot he right on in the back and go to the middle bunker its easiest.
the proces are 20.00 for 500 paintballs and free air
I've been out of the loop for about 3 years. I just got back into the game a few months ago. Since I've got back I've been playing at ECE. There friendly staff and extremely well run field has converted me into an airball junkie though I hate not having a woodsball/scenario field around. The refs are great, the staff is great, the fields are new and setup correctly, and all of the regulars are great. You have a full range of experience out there and lots of action all the time. Saturdays tend to be slower then Sundays with more walkon play and private groups, but that is fine with me and I prefer it. Sunday gets packed with teams from all over so it gets kind of hectic.
Friendly supportive staff
Clean, fair games
Excellent fields (2 right now)
Variety of experience levels
More fields (planning two hyperball fields very soon)
More paint choices (only one paint, Xball, and it's the smallest paint I ever seen)
Paint Prices (65 a case is fine, if it's worth 65, but this Xball is crap IMHO, need a choice of paint types)
Sand (mostly sand and some grass but otherwise, sand...which gets everywhere)
This business is somewhat new but they are on the right path. More field, more paint choices, and it wouldn't hurt to have things like pods and batteries and other misc items for sale on the field (the shop is 20 minutes northwest from the field, kind of inconvenient to go to the shop then to the field).

This feild was great compared to the other one that I posted above. The refs where great and so are the players. Thier is every kind of skilled player there so even if your knew or a vetren there would always be some one to hang out with. The prices werent so bad either. Also they had picknic tables under the trees but you have to get there early to grab one because the're are only a few. All of the people that worked there where great. If I had to tell you guys one sentence it would be, Go there the next time you get a chnce you wont regret it!
East Coast Extreme was the best field i have played on since october. There are two airball (X-Ball) fields, and are very well kept. the refs are fair and the teams are good. everything at the whole place is good, except the prices. you use xball paintballs, which is the best field paint i have used in a while. games go on every five minutes, and there organized. you get your paint and velocity checked every time you start a game. so overall, this field is a 10.
East coast extreme's field is awsome. It is the best i have played in south Florida with a X- ball field and a regular air ball field. the area is nice and open with alot of space to put your stuff. the people are nice and the refs are good. one thing about the field thatis not good are the prices. 65 dollars for a case of paint, but the first week it opened the field paint was not good pant but now the field paint is one of the best paint i have ever used. another thing that is bad about the proces is 10 dollars for all day air and then 10 dollars for admission. so to go for a day with buying a case of paint is about 85 dollars and if you want to buy a bag it is real expensive being at 20 dollars a bag. but the field is AWSOME.
The ECE field is new but is definitely one of the best in South Florida.....the bunkers hold up great two fields, one xball another air-ball, this field is awesome they will make 2-3 more fields in the future. But there is some bad news like every field...the fact that it is half sand half grass isn't my type but ill live with it also the prices are a little to high 65 a case isn't that bad but the fact you have to pay entree and all day air separately isn't what i expected.....but hopefully it will go down. Other wise this field is great and i recommend this place to others
