I have nothing but great things to say about FAP. The owner Logan, which I have met is a great guy and a great field owner, is into his job and enjoys it, and it shows. He is about the player, you and I, having a great time.
I have played at alot of fields in the lower 48. The field I compare everything too is Fox Brothers Paintball in VA beach were I was last stationed. I watch that field start out with pallet bunkers and stumps to sit on in the staging area to becoming one of the best fields in VA. And with in 3 years time.
FAP is just like that, Logan cares about his field and he is into making it better. I say this because as I understand it FAP is a new field. There is currently no food vendors but Logan covers that aspect by ordering pizza on request. The facilities are air conditioned porto-potties, and they are actually clean. He has a 3000 and 4500 fill station and I think CO2, dont recall cause I use HPA. However I do not think Logan would not forget such a major detail.
As far as his staff at the field and his store are great. There is this one guy who is rather annoying and I refer to him as the barrel condom Nazi. But this is a great thing because FAP staffs refs that are safety conscious.
FAP is a growing field in both respects to player base and field quality. FAP is and will be the place to play in Phoenix and surrounding areas.
23BPS (off the Loop 101 and McDowell)
Cowtown Paintball (Carefree Highway)
Directions to the Field:
Take the Loop 101 to 35th.
Take 35th to Pinnacle Peak.
Go down Pinnacle Peak until you reach Wet 'n Wild (the waterpark) on your left, and turn towards Wet 'n Wild, as if you were going there.
Go past the Wet 'n Wild entrance and take the first right main street. You'll pass a rodeo place on your right, then take another right where the sign for Fort Adobe Complex is. Just follow that through the gate and you're there.
Fort Adobe Complex is a combination of both the speed style and rec style of play.
Where 23BPS is more speedball oriented, and Cowtown is more rec oriented, Fort Adobe caters to both styles of play.
They have a neatly built rec field that is suitable for any style of play from 'Defend the Fort' to just a regular elimination game.
The speedball fields, as well, are usually always set up, and change up every time, though they're sometimes built for specific styles, like 3-man, 5-man, or 7-man.
The turf, a replacement for grass, is great to slide on, but when the temperature starts going up, it gets hot to stand on, even with thick boots.
The air compressor is set up with 2 stations. One for 3000psi, and the other for 4500psi, and they both fill up to what they're said to, every time.
The portapotties are quite possibly the best ever in the state of Arizona. Air-conditioned and clean.
The staging areas, as well, are incredibly clean and shaded.
The downside is there's no food vendors or food sold at the field, something that would help it's revenue stream, but ordering pizza and getting a discount with it is a plus.
For those that find the $25 entry fee steep, all you have to do is buy a case of paint from Arizona Paintball Depot, and you get a $5 off coupon with the case. A great way to make sales, and a great way to save money.
Hey paintballers fort adobe was the best time i had in my life. it was fun exciting.
the refs were great if you are by yourself with no one to play with the refs will actually
play with you how cool is that. I recommened this field to people with thier own guns
because a lot of professanals come there and just really good players. Not a smart idea to rent a gun. the people there are so nice they helped me out a lot.
there is no food there like vending machines, but there is water and you could order pizza. But your having the time of your life you dont think of hunger.
ATTENTION: Bring your own Gun its the smartest thing to do. And its really cheap 500 balls = $13
rental: tippman, co2, mask, no chest pad, 500 balls, shake hopper.
Food: no food there but you could order some pizza
People : great
there is 3 fields airball, psp field , and woodsball
25 dollars with own equipment its just a great time higly recommended
