safety
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------ev
erybody there and most first timers were good about barrel plugs and masks. i was suprised.

fields
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
they put alot of work into their fields. tons of branch bunkers, alot of walls, spools, mounds, dugout bunkers, corigated piping, typical woodsball style. there is an amazing amount of fields. they even have 2 ok looking airball fields. when i played from 10 am - 4 pm i played on about 1/3 of their fields. i was dominating everyone with my mech spyder on the spools field, but on other fields that were larger i was a target for people more familiar with the terrain.

the players
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
there were about 30 people when i played. there were alot of scenario guys with a-5's and stocks, but there were also stil typical ion douchay's. there wasnt a real high skill level, however there were some kids with pumps. over the course of the day i shot about 2-3 people for everytime i was shot.

prices
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
55 for a case of x-ball bronz i believe
30 for half case
10 for all day air
15 field fee
20 for rental

staff
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
nice guys, didnt talk to them much. they pretty much chilled in there booth listening to 90's hard rock hits and helping people out. one had a sense of humor

refs
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------th
ere was only one ref in the group of 30. it proved to be plenty. this guy was hilarious, older lookin x-party guy. hes been reffing and playing for over 20 years.

i shot some older guy who got all b#tt-hurt about an exta 2-3 shots. after the game was over i found him to see what his issue was. the ref had allready handled the problem and made him sitout a game. i explained i hadnt seen him raise his hand. the ref said, "he needs to stop b!tching or put some makeup on" "he needs to go back to his old lady or stop b!tching"

food
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
they hook it up with the bqq, i wasnt hungry but it looked good

conclusion
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
its a wear some camo talk about hunting and fit right in kinda place. this is a woodsballers field. dont expect to play airball. i had a great time and plan to return.

highly recomended

Review: I'm torn. This field was my number one field prior to going to Oregon paintball's field in Sandy. So now it's number 2. The only reason I still come here is because Oregon paintball's field isn't open all the time like splat action is. Don't get me wrong, splat action's field is great too!

Pro's:
> Huge field - rarely the same game twice (even all day!) tons of acres!
> Consistently has lots of players, so a pickup game is easy to come by.
> Food on site if you wish to buy BBQ and such
> Decent ref's (in my experience, unlike the other posts I read...but I also played with mostly people I know who don't cheat)

Cons:
> Huge field - I say this as a con only because once you leave the entry point and head INSIDE, prepare to pack yourself FULL of paint. Basically if you don't have a harness, GET ONE...you won't want to come back up between rounds.
> It is woodsball, but almost all of the areas are cleared out, they do have tons of TREES though. However, very few of the fields they use have dense foliage and such (i love to crawl around and lay in wait for ambush). Mostly structures and such. I wish there was more foliage in the areas of actual gameplay. (personal preference)
> Crappy rentals (Spyders) and rediculously inaccurate! Although I have my own gear, just an FYI to you renters.

All in all, it's a great field and given that Oregon paintball is closed alot I would come to splat action any day!

Review: Hey well wat i have to say is that the place is awesome. Some of the ref were lame. They were some of the younger ones. And like wat kenick1 said there let alot of things go. Like the person i went with. Shot a guy in mask(not the lens) and he wiped it. My friend told the ref and the ref said "shot him again." But one ref was so nice the in the beginning after a hour or so most of the south was up eating and all we had was about 20 guys. the refs told the north to back off from our spawn. And before we restarted he was telling us how to keep the pressure on. Which we did and the rest of the south got back from eating and we won. I would Go Again.

Extremez in Vancouver, WA. Even though it's smaller and only offers indoor action, Extremez is a much safer and better run facility with good organization.

I could really care less if other people know how to get to this field or not.
Review: Just got back from the annual Civil War big game and probably will never return to this field. The day started out basically fine and the field has much to offer as far as size and options of play. Throughout the day we had issues with players (mostly the Tournament people) wiping off paint and the refs not calling it, which I was told is a usual occurrence here. However, toward the end of the day after about 3.5 hours the Refs stopped Refereeing and it basically turned into a free for all. Players who actually did call themselves out were walking back to the re-spawn areas with their makers in the air and being shot continuously as they were trying to get back to re-spawn. Where were the refs? I found them hanging out in their own little huddles ignoring the game and text messaging on their phones. When informing them of the problems on the field the refs response to me was " that's paintball" and went back to what he was doing before, nothing. Not to mention that while I was walking over to find the refs, with no maker or gear other than my mask, I was shot in the neck from a range of no more than 30 feet as I approached those refs. Other problems included, players using safety and re-spawn areas as bunkers. Also, players were being allowed to use hot guns firing way over 300fps. I mean, everyone had to crono before the action started but I was hit in the gun hard enough to tear off my reflex sight that was secured with two hex screws, another player was hit hard enough in the mask that it tore off his visor. The refs carried hand held cronos but failed to use them, ever. Basically, the poor organization and officiating made this a very unsafe place to play. I would not even dream of bringing someone who was new to paintball to this facility for their first experience. As ambassadors to our sport, the field operators should be ashamed of themselves and not one of those Referees deserves to keep their jobs after what they allowed to happen there.

Review: Geat field for Woodsball! If you like woodsball and you live in the NW go to this place. Lots of fields and lots of features (towers, bunkers, etc.). The service wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't even close to being bad. I'd say it was just above average. Paint was a little steep but not by much. I've seen much worse. There was some garbage on the fields, like empty pods, but what field doesn't have that junk laying around? Over all though, if you add everything together this place is awsome. It's big enought that if you get tired of one field there are 3 or 4 other fields you can move to. The place is big soyou could have very large teams square off against each other. If you haven't been there, go and check it out!

Review: Well..... I've played at splat for a long time now on and off. It is by far the best in the nothwest for woods and scenario ball.... they have also added an Xball field and 7man field. These are the bomb!!!! THe customer service is the best and refs are good. My only gripe is the paint is 65case for core! sometimes the paint is old so it shoots even worse. But never the less it is the only real field to go to for woods. Come check it out and play on filed 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: THis has to be the largest paintball field played on. It has so many play fields yo will need to play several times before you can play all the areas.
Hard to get bored with this field and they have a numbe of special events playing year around. Pleanty of rentals and paint for large groups of over 100.
I suggest you play at the this field at least once if not 2 or 3 times.

Review: Wow!!! that's all i have to say after playing at splat action. The field is outstanding and if your into woods ball its heaven. They don't have much for speed ball but they make up for it with their woods ball course. The teams are sometimes unfair because you choose your own, but it was still fun. Our team got stuck with quite a few newbies and we thought we were done from the beginning. But you'll be surprised what a little planning and strategy will get you. In the end we lost but out of 5 hours they only held the flag 15 minutes longer then us. A VERY CLOSE GAME!! The staff is excellent and really fair. The prices aren't the best but they aren't the worst either. I defiantly recommend this field.

Weekend Warriors NW-I didn't really like WWNW, the people were nice but i didn't like the fact that there was not very much woodsball
edit 1-27-05: i play speedball now so i would probably like it there.
Review: I've been to Splat Action a total of about 4 or 5 times. I'm really into woods ball and that's pretty much all they have there. The judges are really nice and can answer just about any question you have. The other paintballers are generally very nice also and making friends is very easy. It can get kind of hectic because there aren't any restrictions so teams can get unfair. It's a very fun overall and i would have to rate it 10/10
