orbital and J.G which are completely blown out of the water with this AWESOME field
Directions to the Field:
Down Bearss and on the left before the interstate
Wow this is by far the best paintball field I have ever been too. They have 3 airball fields and plenty of reffs who actually do paintchecks. The bunkers are also checked on and inflated accordingly and are cleaned of excess paint. Ther's also a woodsball field with buildings which is pretty awesome too. The BEST part of all this is the do it urself fill it station. It's a very simple yet kick a** thing where thers 4 hoses and you flip a nob to fill up ( NO LINES!!!!!!!!!!!!) The last part which is also awesome is the cool people there who are knowlegeable and are willing to help you out. I give this field a 10/10 cus it's AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Jungle Games (Horrible), Orbital (Good), Central Florida Paintball (good - great)
Directions to the Field:
On bearss ave. between i-275 across from carmax
Easily one of the better ones servicing Tampa and the surrounding area. Jungle Games is closeby but offers nothing compared to Blitzkrieg. Orbital and CFP are quite a ways away but CFP is the only one worth comparing Blitzkrieg to. Blitzkrieg has 1 Xball field, 2 airball fields, and a woods field.
The Xball field is a very good setup and the airball fields are also very good. They are always improving the fields and expanding them. Also when NPPL Tampa comes around they will be buying an NPPL regulation field.
Woods wise they are somewhat lacking. The only games I played in the woods were attack and defend so I have no idea if they have a better woods area next to it for a real woods game. Attack and defend is played where one team starts in the woods and heads down 4 small trails to a set of hyperball bunkers and a trailer that the defenders use. The setup isn't really made for a real woodsball game like you would find at Orbital or CFP.
The customer service/staff was amazing. They have all the essentials for sale (food, drinks, parts, etc.) and were all kind. The refs were somewhat useless at times but I'm guessing they don't have previous experience and are still learning (2 out of the 4 seemed to be clueless as to how to ref). The staging area is very nice and every table is shaded by trees. Also all the facilities (front counter, air station, chrono station, etc.) were all clean unlike most other fields.
Overall this is a great alternative for Lutz/New Tampa area people that don't like the drive to CFP/Orbital but still want to play airball, xball or woodsball. Also IMO CFP has a worse airball/xball experience due to the lack of walk-ons that want to play airball and the overwhelming number of teams.
Easily get's a 9/10 only because they are still in need of improvement on the woodsball field and that's about it.
jungle games, orbital, waynes world, disaster, lake wales, gator, log cabin. other than gator, and waynes, this field is the best in town for the prices, people, and facility.
byop and they sell paint at discounts, with normal entry fees.

on bearss ave. between i-275, and nebraska/us41... CANT MISS IT! across from the carmax.
well, for new field owners they have done their homework. they are aiming to be kind and curteous to all their patrons. they emphasize fun over everything. their hours are unbeatable, from 9am til WHENEVER you feel liek going home sat and sunday, and pretty much any team practices you wanna have during the week. friday theyre open as well.
they keep changing the fields, and plan to keep things fresh and new as long as they got the cash to do so which i find impressive! their xball is up and running, they also sport 2 speedball fields (airball bunkers of course), and a nice woodsbal field. i would liken the woods field to a small section of waynes world. it has soem trails, great cover, and is nice and shady on one side, and open and sunny with tall grass on the other. the 2 speedball fields are similar yet different. one is longer and mroe rectangular, and the other is smaller and mroe square, perfect for 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 games. and by the way... THEIR FIELDS ARE ALWAYS LIT FOR NIGHT PLAY AT DUSK!
one feature i like is how they make the cars park in an actual parking lot, and you have a short walk to the desk and staging area. it keeps the paint-to-vehicle factor to a minimum. they also strictly enforce the 290 fps limit.
for the most part the people i have met that play value sportsmanship and fun over attitudes and cheating, and are all around good sports. for once there are players that yell at people who overhsoot rather than brag about it. i find the reffing staff does a decent job of keeping things moving along, and they actually LISTEN to players about what they want to play.
they pas sout suggestion cards and ACTUALLY read them. their prices are competitive, and it is byop, and buy paint there. if you run out, they have good paint at great prices. there is absolutley nothign i can complain about EXCEPT that they dont have enough places to sit. remember to bring your own camping chairs for in between games.
Hyperball, speedball, and X ball field, as well as a jungle/wooded area.
The X ball field is open as of this weekend. All day field with air is $25.00, club membership is available which entitles you to discounted prices. Paint is sold at the lowest prices around. Staff is friendly! They solicit and really listen to suggestions.
Definetly a great place to go.I just went the first saturday they were open,and I found it awsome.It has three fields(One big x-ball field is being made in a few months)The first is a huge woods ball used for scenario play,two or more people will be "snipers" and hide in the woods somewhere,then more players come and flush them out.The second field is a speedball field,and third is and air ball field.Also,the prices there are insane,only 30 dollars for entry and air.The staff is really nice,too.Overall,I give this field two thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now intead of pies for speed ball, theyre air bunkers!YAY! Plus they have the big ball field up now!I woul give it three thumbs up,if I had another thumb.
