Battle Creek in Decatur IL. - decent field but to many pot heads running the place.
Xtreme Paintball Park in Millstadt IL. - parts of fields where good but the refs didnt know all the rules of the game and would drive a golf cart right thru a fire fight.
Directions to the Field:
I typed in the address on the website in to my tom tom ang got to the stop light to the west of the field and just kept driving a few hundred yards and found it. it would help if they put a few more signs around with directions.
Safety - the field was very strict on goggles and barrel condoms and I saw they treated the airsoft guys the same way too.
Fields - Awsome fields, they have 3 woods ball fields a vietnam field, a frontier field with log cabins, and a tank field with 4 foot tanks as bunkers and the grass and weeds were very overgrown. Also they had 5 speedball fields. 2 fields of big spools, 1 inflatable field, 1 field with concrete bunkers, and another field with spools and barrels.
Hours - 10am - 5pm. I loved the hours we live 61 miles away and we got to sleep and still get there at opening and we stayed all day till closing
Prices - I thought were very good I spent $60 and played all day. I brought my own gear.
$15 field fee and allday air
$45 for a case of Heat and I loved the paint. yes its more that walmart but you can tell the difference by the first shot.
Rules - Simple 1 hit any where on the body or gun and your out.
Services - N/A but I wish they would build a bathroom and get running water.
Proshop - they had a few things for sale but they have bigger shop in town there in edwardsville that I haven't checked out yet.
Staff / Refs - We got there went it to the trailer and was greeted with a warm smile and quickly got supplies and signed waivers and was introduced to our ref. Then we had the same ref all day, he told us what fields were open and we got to choose played a game on both sides of the field then we got to pick the next field and it was like that all day. AWSOME.
Players - i played with a couple of guys that have played for 5+ years and 5 people that have never played before and we all had a blast.
Facilites - like i said before the shop was an old trailer WITH AC. 1 portapotty. They don't have running water, it would be nice to build a bathroom and have a water spicket for people to fill up there camel backs.
Food - I didn't eat but they had $1 bottles of water and they ordered Dominos for $2 a slice.
All-in-all it was the BEST paintball experince I have had at a field in the 10 years that I have played paintball. and I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND this field to anyone wanting to try paintball or airsoft for the first time or even the guys like me that have played most of there life.
Xtreme, ok field but nothing special
Whacky Warriors, sorry guys but this place wasn't very good.
Directions to the Field:
Alright so I went here today for the first time and it was amazing. The refs were sweet the people were sweet the fields were sweet, everything was sweet!
Pricing was $20 for rental (tippman custom 98 great condition) add another $10 for a fourth case. $10 for entrance 5 more for all day air. (rental includes entrance and all day air)
They currently have four fields up:
Vietnam- they have hand dug bunkers all over the place, trails that go throughout the field and it was all hand built by the owner...awesomeness!
Frontier-we named this "little house on the prairie" but more forest and less a little house and more big houses some are two stories and there are also trails, just less used.
Cement- I forgot the formal name of it but its hyperball with concrete tubing and little hills all over, i love this as well as the other two.
Air/Speedball- Sorry but im not a big fan of speedball so I didn't play this, but i do know they have all the coliseum's courses and when i went there that was good so just wait a bit and they will most likely air the rest up.
They also have this gigantic dirt mound that they are turning into and assault course and they have probably 20 acres left and said they were going to make much more woodsball.
I was an Xtreme fan but when i came here this is obviously better. GO THERE!!!
