Speedball Review( Dont care about 1/2 price days or anything else)
We went in on a sunday chopshop and synergy were scrimin.
Even though open class did not start untill 6 they let our team get in.
This place is huge. Some ppl get mad about the house's they arnt there on byop nights.
They have NPPL Bunkers good shape hold air well
Turff is great
lots of staging area 2nd floor stagin can watch the whole field.
They fill air for you.
Great place will go back again.
On a Final Note if your going to a new place dont just show up and expect them to roll out the carpet for you and your O so great speedball team.
Call a head get details ask what nights and times are best to come play make sure its byop and air inc.
The prices are alittle expensive unless you go on a have price night. $ 10 to have unlimited air refills will you play and $ 6 for every Co2 fill over 12 ounces i think which sucks cuz most fields are free. the ref stands in a little rectangle for the entire game and has no vision of 75 % of the field maybe even 90% so there is a lot of wiping. the games are a short 5 minutes and you only play one then you have to wait for 20 minutes till your next game. the games are set up into class renters will play renters for 5 minutes or a game then owners will play owners. then open will play open , then party will play party so for me i was playing open and are games lasted on average 2 minutes then we had to wait 15 - 20 minutes to play again which is stupid.
overall it was ok, i will be going back. but now i know what to expect.
Wow is all i have to say after a truly dissatisfying time at this field. The staff seem to be a little bit slacked and the manager was on edge the whole time. When we got there something was wrong and we couldnt play, 2 hours past opening time and the bunkers werent inflated yet. The air fills were expensive, and i was later kicked out of the field for something my friend did.
Every time i go there im a dissapointed with the staff. I went today (came from whitby) and when i got there i waited half an hour in line and then once i got up tp the counter i was told that open class cant play until 6 o 'clock (it was 1:00, was that posted on their website...no). Every time i go they make you feel like it is a hastle to do what they are payed to do ... help you. This is not the first time this happened, one other time i went and we had to beg them to let us play. Now i know the proshop is not assosiated with Next but i dont like the way it is run either. My buddy had his tank come in from being re-hydro tested and when we walked into next at 6:00 the lights turned out and they wouldnt let him get his tank even though he already payed for the testing.
Conclusion- I dont ike this place but its not there is many other options for speedball arean's that are as nice (nice as in the facility is nice) as this one. Another thing i dont like is that they dont let you play with anyone other than your groups (Open class, renters and owners) at guerilla they let you play with whoever and if parties wanted to you to go on with you then you could at next it doesnt mater if they want you to or not they just wont let you.
Safety: Pretty Strict with regards to barrel covers and mask. I've never seen anything that would be classified as unsafe. Refs are fair and will give warnings to unsafe players.
Field: This place is Huge. New setups weekly. As cleans as you would expect any paintball field to be.
Hours of Operation: 12 to 12 everyday
Prices: Half Price Tuesdays and Wednesdays, All the prices seem to be on par with other play fields i have looked at.
Rules: Standard rules apply. Barrels covers and mask etc
Pro shop: Great service, Fair prices, knowledgeable staff, Wide variety of products. Monday-Friday: 12noon to 9pm
Saturday: 11am to 6pm
Sunday: 11am to 6pm
Staff: Good People, Good service
Refs: Pretty strict, good guys easy to talk to (don't do paint checks, can't blame them)
Players: There are three classes of play
Renters: Obviously rent equipment from Next
Owners: Must buy paint from next, not too competitive
Open Class: Owners who bring there own paint and are far more competitive
Facilities: Pretty clean and very big
Mondays: League Night ($100 for 14 weeks)
Tuesdays: Half Price day (speed ball set up)
Wednesdays: Half Price Day (houses are set up)
Sunday: Renters and owners during the day and open class during the evening

Looking it up your self
The worst paintball experience of my 4 years of playing.
The setup is geared totally to renters. If you own - go somewhere else.
I arrive, fill out the waiver. Told I have to purchase a open class or rent. Open class means I can use my own paint . . . . I don't have any . . . they won't sell me any at the counter, but they say I can purchase from the pro shop. Costs me $28 plus $4 tank fill.
Purchase paint from pro shop - $16 for 2 x 140 pods (I'm a pump player, don't shoot that much). Enter field. FIre off a couple of test rounds. Oooh, sir your using pink paint. You can't use pink paint on the field. WTF. I purchased it from your pro shop . . . were not associated with the pro shop I'm told.
Ask for a refund and leave. Never to come back. In the 4 years of playing have never had a place were 1) they won't sell you any paint unless your a renter 2) were the pro shop would sell you paint you can't even us on the field in the same building.
i came all the way from trenton to play at this field. i was not impressed. i came in and and paid and whatnot, then checked out the field. im a speedball player and lets just say the set up was not fitting my needs. there were blow up houses. not just one or two, i think i counted 6. the field was really messy, the staff was not nice or helpfull at all, and im pretty sure the women who was working there, filling up my tank, was stonned out of her tree. Paint is ultra expensive and not very good.
wasaga beach paint ball, awsome but it a out door so cant put them on the same compareision.
area 51, one thing and its a big one way to drity. your covered in paint be for u start playing
stg spatters, to dark and the sand get in every thing.( way to drity )
Directions to the Field:
it just off the 401 at whites road. just go west of whites on to hwy 2 then at the next light turn left in the the spots store parking lot it just right behind the the small shops.
this is my main feild that i play on. I have to say i love it here. lots of fun.
Safety- Very good
feild - is clean and they change up the setup for time too time so u dont get bord with it
ref.- very good always willing to help and do there best to keep the games safe and teams fare
pro shop - is awsome got my gear there i think there pro shop prices are as good as others that i have been to.
i would recomend that every one shold try this place out at lest once to see that it s is a fun place to come to.
