Dragonfire, Wasaga Beach, Paintball City, Sgt Splatter, Area 51, Vaughn, etc.
VERY CLEAN - Even more than dragonfire, I must say - walking into the lobby you wouldn't even know it was a paintball place (the lobby is separated from the field)
- The field is cleaned weekly, which is pretty good, considering the fact that the floor is turf and gravel, and the bunkers are wood. DF cleans daily but they have just a speedball field and no sand.
- Pretty good tactical Proshop
- Nice field- they have smoke, lighting and SFX, as well as the big paintball cannon
- Nice staff
- Fair pricing
- Pro shop staff aren't the friendliest, but nice enough
- The field is very dark and worse if you have a cheap mask
- The building is pretty slimy (lol)
- The field sometimes gets reserved so you go and end up getting stuck in the lobby; you can't even watch them play.

Area 51 - Dirty, ripoff prices, terrible refs.
Sgt. Splatters - All of above and then some.
Safety - Barrel bags mandatory (obviously). The refs enforce the rules but are nice about it. Very safe environment to say the least.
Field - Interesting. Its a scenario field, but its set up somewhat like a speedball field. It allows you to work on both skills. Great for people like me who play speedball AND scenario.
Prices - Prices are ok. 15 entrance and 11.50 per hundred balls for owners. Paint prices are the same for renters. renter entrance is 25 on weekends. But weekdays are where the field truly rules: 15 bucks entrance + 10 if ur renting. then its 25 bucks a case. (or 40 if you want the hot box). The white box is pretty good though. Always breaks on impact, and never chopped once in my tippmann (or any other gun there for that matter).
Refs - The refs kick some serious ass. They are really creative with the game types. Also, they actually ref unlike some other fields. Instead of leaving you to get bonus balled on your way out they call "player out" or "player hit, watch your fire". Excellent refs. They are also just really nice.
Staff - Great. They treat you great. You can strike up a conversation and they wont be all akward or "I have to help this customer". Any question you have they can help you with.
A final note: They dont fill Co2. However, you can rent an air tank (47/30) for all day for only 4 bucks. Also, no matter what, air fills are free (3000 or 4500 psi).
Overall this is the best indoor in ontario without question. I honestly cant find anything wrong.
One suggestion to the staff: if possible, add a second floor to the attack defend building. Its great as is, but a second floor would add some pretty sweet possibilities.
Bristol & Hurontario. Go up 10, turn right on Courtney Park. pass 7 set of lights, make a right on Ordan Drive, 6200 is on the right hand side, dont get confused with the one across the street
Well, it was my first time there, and i have to say, it was quite an experience, alot of things wer good there, but theres too much to list, i would of prefered if there was a 2 story building, because it would of had more adrenaline to it. Everyone who was there, wer very helpful, and got me right on track, I personally say that even thought there are two trucks, the one in the far end, should of been brought up more onto the field, besides that, i enjoyed myself, if anyone remembered me, i was the one who had the Spyder Sonix 05' and my friend who i was with had the Spyder Xtra(dressed in all camo). I will most likely come back again.
For a rating, i would give it a 9. because nothing is perfect in life, and each field has their own differences.

ok....10 out of 10 for obvious reasons
-cheap (15 bucks BYOP; no1 can top that)
- 25 for case of whitebox n 40 for hotbox cant top that either
-field is good; however no bunkers
-good refs (refs u can communicate...wit the fat ref is humorous)
-different games to eliminate boredom
-snack machines for PIGS
-o make sure i dont forget CHEAP
First off in regard to the last review, the hostess is HOT! I will not argue with that one.
But the staff there are really friendly and good to talk to. The one thing that I was happy about was the unlimited refills and you dont have to pay extra for it. Its all included in the admission.
First impression was WOW! The staging area is cleaned during every game, the players there were courteous to your personal belongings. The only thing I had to adjust to was how dark the field seemed when I entered the playing area. After a couple games I took off the top shield to my mask and the light got better.
The BYOP and their prices Monday to Thursday is just great! $25 for whitebox, $40 for hotbox and I believe $60 for the Menace balls. Most of the players used whitebox and those balls hardly ever break on ya, so make sure you get a paintcheck when you get hit. I walked off 3 times thinking the ball broke but it didnt. My recommendation would be to at least get the hotbox when playing there.
I liked the range of games they have lined up to play, President, Elimination, Capture the flag. The only thing I did not like was they did not switch sides for the teams to play both sides of a genre of game (or at least I didnt get to participate in that).
Overall, I would definitely recommend playing here. Worth while to at least go down and check it out, you be the judge.
This place rocks! Super Clean, great prices and they have BYOP Mon to Thurs. Who can do that.
The refs are friendly, Big guy is really cool, helpful and knowledgable. No Attitude. Great atmosphere.
All other indoor paintball fields don't stand a chance. If your in search of a great place where players respect the game, this is it.
FYI the hot hostess is enough reason to keep coming back!
I give this field 10/10.
I went to this field after a hockey party and loved it. I'm gonna break up the review into a couple fo sections.
Easy to navigate, clean, not really much to say. The host at the counter, whoever it is is always nice and will answer any, and I mean any question about paintball there. You get great prices here, I was lucky enough to score 32 free entry cards (don't ask how) so i don't have to pay the 10 buck entry fee until June 3rd. Three grades of paintballs ou can buy from them. Whitebox, Hot box and Tournament grade, cheap prices did I mention?
Located just around the front desk is a scenario shop, looks great but scenario markers are my cup of tea. The guys at the pro shop are knowledgeable and will talk paintball with you, or bf2 if you catch the guy playing it.
The Staging Area:
Clean. This is an amazing staging area because you can see everything, and is never crowded. So there are little thefts that happen there except for cheap asses who steal the rentals. It has bathrooms in which you can look at your welts :). They have a chronograph, where testing your gun is a must with he refs.
Awesome layout. It's fair on both sides but I favor the one closest to the staging area. Every bunker has a spot where you have an advantage and disadvantage which is great. When the ref sets up a scenario game using the building it is so fun, get the briefcase, attack and defend, predator, the games are endless, but I love playing elimination on this field. It's clean with a gravel/turf combo, which I mean turf in the middle and gravel along the outside.
The refs are by far the best, they ave a sense of humor. When the ref was explaining to the newbie where the field was I just had to blurt out "your a field" to the ref, which people take offense to a lot but this guy laughed and then burned me hard while giving out instructions for a game. Called me a woman. But the refs are amazing they are knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The front desk guys I mentioned are also great.
The only thing I dock points for is not having the whole field with turf. Look for me, I'm the kid who is always taunting "Helmet" and regulars, you know what I mean.
