The field is also host to a lot of charitible games, and they do have quite the selection of field types. The bunkers are the airsoft teams favorite areas, same with the hill. The forests and swamps are really nice.
Everyone has to keep a barrel condom on there rifle at all times outside field limits, everyone does a good job of enforcing this and there is never any sort of problems.
Food and water and drinks can be found, there is no litter in the field and the field is kept as clean as possible. The only exceptions is the odd tree down here or there every once in awhile, but when it gets bad usually the regular players go and clean it up.
Definately a very nice field and is well worth the trip!
Fairly easy to find,
Cross White Bridge, and go straight, around the sharp corner
and when the road straightens it is to your right shortly after.
A friend got my brother into paintball then my brother got me into it. Midway is a great field whether you're a pro or just beginning, whenever possible they split groups based on ability so the less skilled players aren't being completley destroyed.
The staff members are great too, always fair, and willing to help, they are eger to give pointers and are easy to talk to.
Prices arent bad, $15 field fee, and $30 for a 500 round bag of paint, and Midway uses EKG paint. I'm not sure what rental costs are though.
They have cool fields too, a ghost town, 2 forest fields, a tire pit, car yard and a favourite, hamburger hill. they have tons of room to expand and I'm looking forward to years to come
I haven't played at many but i have played at a few non commercial fields with friends
Midway is awesome the staff are great and they have lots of fields. Their saftey talk before each match is great and funny. Although they usually dont let people play harder games like fox and hound unles requested but still playing the originals is always fun.
ZThey rent top of the line tippman 98 customs and even the begginers have fun. The refs are always fun and let you and your group choose where to go and what to play.
One of their best features is they supply a hotdog with each rental package.lol. I would by far rate this field top on the island and possibly B.C. ;)
there are not any fields to close to midway, the closest being in Victoria, about an hour and bit away. I think Midway is by far the best field on the Island.
Directions to the Field:
i'm to lazy to type so here's an address
Midway is one of the best fields in B.C. in my opinion. when you first arrive at midway it looks like a bit of a junk yard, but after 3 minutes out of your car you know this place is going to be around for years to come. midway rents out tippmann 98 customs with all the fixings (mask, CO2....). The staff at midway are helpful, easy to talk to, funny (mostly full of some lame jokes but that's ok) and generally very nice. prices are not bad at midway, more expensive then Walmart and other stores, but what field isn't? midway has many fields now that they have been adding on and they will have a few more withen the next few years. the refs are fair and helpful and seem to be happy with what they are doing. midway has good hours of operation that will fit in with most peoples schedule. midway has CO2 refills and compressed air, for those among us with compressed air as far as i know its low pressure only... the food is good, the staff can make a pretty good hot dog, which comes free with rentals. if you want to have a good time, or your just starting to paintball, or even if you have been playing paintball since the dawn of time, midway is definitely the best field on the island.
Midway moved from Crofton to Duncan, Making its new home on the Old Indian River Paintball Field. Midway has built a Ghost Town and Few Bush Ball fields, and has a Speed ball field.
I enjoy the attitude of the staff at Midway. Laid Back and very Helpful.
The field is currently continuing construction adding new fields and the cleaning up of debris left after the original field in that location closed i think is almost complete. In 1 more years time I think it will be a really nice field for anyone to play at.
The Field is like 100 acres so it looks like they have a lot of work cut out for them.
