Velocity-good for speedballers like me
Camp Pendelten(or whatever the spelling)- good scenario games
Hollywood sports-good tourneys and scenarios
Directions to the Field:
Lake Wolford road, by the dog park or human society
They are a somewhat smaller operation of paintball. They have one tourney field right now and its way oldschool. There airball field got popped or stolen or something. They have alot of woodsball stuff which im not all into but i hear their setup on that is pretty good. NEW NEWS- YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY THEIR CRAPPY FIELD PAINT ANYMORE, 25 DOLLARS ENTRY FOR THE SELF-EQUIPPED PLAYER AND YOU CAN BRING YOUR PAINT FROM ANYWHERE. that's about the only good news Escondido paintballers have heard in a long time. they have a new field coming in also they removed spools and it is being replaced with a regulation sized nppl level turf 5 or 7 man airbunker field to attract teams and serious ballers just they are taking a while to finish it. I recommend you try it once and if you don't like it whatever.
Velocity-good players recomend if good...
This is a pretty awesome place. But its a bit expensive... that is if you follow the rules. The rules say you gotta buy there crappy paintballs. But its a good idea to just mabey buy 500 rounds of theirs and then bring your own.
The refs are ok, kinda of funny not to profesional, but they make the game fun and exciting still.
Their fields are pretty good. The best one is probally the village. Very awesome to play 4 vs. 4 at that field.
Players arent that good. So if your really good I dont recomend going there unless you just want to own everybody... pretty boring.
All I really know about is Velocity, down in Ramona, and Camp Pendelton (or however you spell it.)
Directions to the Field:
It's hard to miss the entrance because it is hidden behind a large wall, just go slow in that area and be prepared to turn quickly.
Prices: Well, the entrance fee is around $20, if you don't come self-equipped. That includes free air, and CO2 all day except for lunch, which they don't fill the tanks anyways. Paint starts at $45 bucks on the field (but more on the paint later.) The whole list to their prices is on their site, just look it up on Google or something.
Paint: I would highly suggest that you do NOT buy paint from Mr. Paintball, wether it be the store or field. The $45 paint is older than dirt, and can make your day quite miserable. After playing for a while, my Empire Reloader B was just a paint blender. I had to completely tear it apart in order to clean it fully. And the sad thing was, I wasn't the only person having these problems! A good 5 people already sent in paint 2-3 times before me. And when I went to replace the balls, he had no other cheap paint, so I had to get the next grade up. The owner would't give me te next grade unless I payed another $5 (I had only 1500 then), and he only gave me 1000! So I would recommend getting paint at Gogged Paintball on Valley Parkway, if you are heading toward the field, it's on the right.
Refs: While they are a bit slow between games, they do get the games done. I play Intermediate, so we usually play on their Tournament style field and this one with Spools on it. They used to have a field with Air bunkers on it, but they never filled them enough, so I don't think it's used anymore.
Safety: I have never seen anyone get injured while I was there, and I have played on their potentially dangerous fields. Although, there are places that could possibly be fixed so this stays true.
Fields: There are (or have been) an assortment of fields to play on Mr. Paintball USA. For the scenario players, they have about 4-5 fields set up (or they did when I was only a newbie), and a good 3 fields for the tourny style players. It does get stale for the tourny players, but you can't lose interest while playing 5 v 5 rather than 20 v 20 o nthe same field. :)
I rated this field an 8 mostly because of the slow down times, (and long ass lunch break) and because of the crappy paint. But that doesn't stop me from going!
P.S. Forgot to mention, I don't remember the last time I went, so the date is off.

Overall I really liked it, the course says field paint only, but they dont really follow up, just bring your own paint they dont care... The staff is very nice and the refs were excellent on calling and rules, but we didnt really like him cuz he took like a 10 minutes break everytime we finished a game (we had a private party) It was a great overall field, but the previous review writer is correct, I heard it was under new management and the field seemed really slow. You had to trudge about 1/2 a mile in full gear to get to 3 of the courses from the staging area and the pizza delivery nearby was really bad... The fields they did have we're pretty awesome but my friends who went there already noticed some bulldozers and about 2 acres of freshly paved land and were pretty upset - - -
About 2-3 of the fields were paved, I dont know why, but they're gone...
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.

sc village,crossfire,tombstone,and private field
Ok mr paintball usa, its located in the middle of no wear what so ever and thats what i can say bout that. This field is mostly for sceniro players and people who like to look like world war 2 morons lol. I would not recomend this field to tournement ,xball,nppl, or psp players. The ref's there are tottaly idiots they dont check fps which is very dangerous, Today we were playing a tourneyment there and i got shot in the mask and the kid was excedding speeds of 350FPS! which is dangerous .
This park is unsafe there have a crater on the side of the so called hyper ball field, they have many big rocks there which they see no reason to take out. So insteed they painted them neon green even then still dangerous. When we played last month this player called cody hite came with his friends slid into a bunker and broke his ankle so bad that they had to do some massive surgerie . They need to remove the dangerous of that horrible field . insteed of suewing them they compermised gave him a $1,000 and 7 cases of toxic .
My conclusion is that this field sucks and its horrible i give it a -100 casues its that bad even worse then that
This was my first experience with paintball (did it as a birthday thing). I thoroughly enjoyed the experience (hence my perusing these forums) and plan on doing it again very soon. It was a holiday today so I think the field may have been more crowded than normal (at least I hope so as there seemed to be a *LOT* of people playing with us) - we had anywhere from 35-45 players which on some of the fields seemed like a lot. This is my first time so I don't know if that's normal or not. The fields were all very fun (although I didn't care for the house one where five people had to defend a house from 30 people - all the others were a blast) - I especially liked the village (when there were less of us) and the one map with all the pipes. I don't know if the prices are exorbitant or not but after reading the comments on this forum I would say they are probably average (meaning some places charge you for air vs. this place charging you for paint). Everyone was extremely friendly and helped explain the rules and the game to me. The experienced folks that were there were also very happy to share their wisdom with us newbies. I didn't hear any swearing which I found refreshing and if people were hit they followed the rules and got out. The Ref we had (John) was also very nice and good at explaining things and keeping things safe for all of us.
The things I didn't like (but do not know if this is normal - this being my first time) - is the amount of time we had to spend waiting between rounds. There was such a large group of walk-ons that we would have one long round (instead of two shorter rounds) in which case if you were knocked out early you had to wait a long time and then because the round was so long the people that did stay in had to go back and get their air refilled and loaded back up on ammo. So we would ALL have to go back and wait for everyone to refill tanks and reload ammo (about 20 mins between a round). When there were less people in the early part of the morning we got two rounds in - so if you got knocked out early - you didn't have to wait long - and most everyone needed air and ammo at the end of two rounds (not so after just one round).
To finish this off - I would say that this field is a great course for beginners (I heard many comments to the same point) and if you happen to go on a day that there is not so many people - so much the better!! I also think if you can get a group of enough people together so you can get a package with your own ref and field it would be much more fun. You would not be at the mercy of the number of walk-ons that happen to arrive that day.
Thanks for a great introduction to the sport and a fun day!!
Adreneline(WHY,WHy, did it close!!!) CP, velocity.
I've been playing at this field for 2 years now, both airsoft and Paintball, and I love it. Every time I go there they leave me wanting to go back again. The refs are awesome guys, alwasy helpful and fun to joke around with. They owner is cool, I know him so he always gives me free gatorades and sometimes free admission. They are really cool with airsofters, they get a whole field to themselves.
Cons: No bunkering: GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!, I hate that bunkering is one of the most beautful things in paintball. No large air ball fields(though I hear there building them)
Not enough speedball. Other than that they are a good feild to play at so if your in the area I would definetely stop by.
I've been to this field quite a few times and I have only had a few incidents, mostly with players. One time some players cheated on the trenches and went out of bounds, shot me, I told them they were out of bounds and they refused to get out. So I had to threaten their lives. Sometimes it's cool there sometimes not. The biggest issues with me and this field is 2 things. 1. The no off field paint rule.(But no strictly enforced) and 2. The disorganization.. I go there and play advanced. I refuse to play with beginners, or intermediate. So sometimes the groups get mixed and consolidated and crap like that and they tell me we have to play with a beg. group at foxholes so it becomes 20 on 20. lol . BUT the field manager is understanding and kinda let's you take a small group of advanced players to play on your own.(with a referee of course) the prices for paint are ridiculous, the food? 6 bucks for a coke, and two slices of itty bitty pizza that the bought the whole thing for 5 bucks? come on give me a break. 1 dollar for a coke? get out of here. So I suggest you bring your own lunch and drinks. The portajohns are just that, portajohns. Other then that the ref's are cool so is the management. Sometimes the have there days just like any other field. Now for the most important part. The fields. The air bunker course is always deflated, they got a few decent courses but the best they have to offer is the foxholes. Which is a good course compared to the others at the park. If you live close to it go, if you don't mind driving go to jungle island(I hear the air bunkers are coming from adrenaline to jungle) and if you really don't care drive up north to SC Village. I give it a 6 because of crazy prices, and disorganized refs. (which turn into less playtime) Prices are ok, for addmission 35 for 1000 pb's and all day air, field fee. That's cool.
I played at camp pedalton,but Mr.Paintball is better.
One word describes Mr.Paintball.Awesome.Its a friendly field.What I mean is its a place where just about everyone gets along.Usually.....People who are usually there are people that just want to enjoy a fair game,in comparison to rich,snobby jerks with DMC's wanting to kill someone.The staff and managers are very nice,but the refs are known to slack off and not enforce the rules very well.The location is in Escondido,witch makes it about 10 degrees hotter than normal weather.Not to mention the long walks from each field to the filling station,but on the other hand it's worth it.All of the fields are pretty good,accept some of the larger fields such as Alina'sPeak and MariaVill could use about 4 or 5 more bunkers. Other than that,everything else is flawless.My favorite field is Trenches because there's no bunkering.The reason there's no bunkering is because there's no bunkers.Just trenches,rocks,and trees.Speaking of no bunkering,that's one of the only few rules the refs really enforce.If you encounter an enemy player less than 10feet you half to yell surrender,and they half to.If they don't,well they'll be sorry.The only bad things about Mr.Paintball is that the guns you rent there suck ,and you can't use your own paintballs,you half to use theirs. The portapotties smell horrible as well.Overall,Mr.Paintball is a great place for paintballers of all ages.It's a great place for hardcore players who to prove their skills and dominate,and for newbies who want to have a good time and make new friends.I give it a nine out of ten.

- Cheap Admission, and youth group friendly.
- If you want cheap paint, their current price right now is 35 per case, but you can always buy them at their store which is only couple of miles away for a much lower price, they do allow you to bring in the store paint as long as you have receipt.
- All Day air (much better than camp pendleton, which you have to pay per psi)
- Lunch is includes
- Friendly ref, especially if you tip them afteward.
- Will give you a private ref if you pay 100 buck extra.
- Trench field is pretty fun
- Don't even try sliding, except on the air field.
- not much else. If you want to play int. or adv. level of paintball, most of the time they have 2 groups of walk-on, beg. and other wise.
