I haven't tried any other fields yet, i heard edge is the best and it's closest to my house
- The fields are great with multiple styles of play. I like the attitude of most of the players everyone is really helpful to the new guys. Plus, very few throw tantrums if they get marked
- Saftey guidelines are excellent, everyone is required to have their masks down when in a playing field and to have their plugs in when in the main area.
- There could be a ref or so watching the chronograph because somebody will try to get by and shoot 310 fps while all the honest players are shooting at 285 or lower.(285 max)
- All in all, the field is great everything is all cool there if you are reading this go to the edge and play some paintball now!
I have not played in other paintball fields, just the woods out by the ArKansas w/ my friends.
This field is awesome. The refs should try to use a little bit more control, but otherwise the facilities are excellent and well maintained. Saftey is their #1 priority. They should have a few more refs too. A lot of fields including speedball, towns, and fort. There needs to be more than one ref ina game of speedball w/ 30 people.
the edge has improved on the courses a Little. the air ball is back up it is okay. hyper ball is better at least that is what i thank. there were a few new bunkers in the fort. there have been a lot of people lately so it has been Bessy. prices for paint has gone down. you can use you own paint in there guns now to.
I deleted my last review and felt that it needed to be upgraded. I feel "The Edge" in a whole lot better than it was when I wrote my last review.
The ref was excellent during the last Saturday I played with a large group. The safety meeting before playing was very good. The paint prices have been reduced and now one can use their own paint. The ref let us play what we wanted to as long as that field was open. I was quite impressed on how good he was.
Our group didn't play any speed ball. The games we played were very good:
Our high school group had an excellent time. I was one of the sponsors and I know that everyone had an excellent time. The staff was very friendly also. I really like it now that "The Edge" lets you use your own paint as long as you use your own gun.
My friends and I went to play at the Edge and we had a blast. They have great fields. I have to go to a class room to another that is farther away than any of the distances to any of the fields. There is shade along the outer area of the parking lot/ staging area. The last game of the day that we played the refs set up the bridge, the fort, and chaos together where one team starts at the bridge the other team at chaos and you run and get to the fort as fast as you or your team can, to take control over it. Who ever holds it for an amount of time wins. Then we switched sides. It was a blast.
I have played on Virginia paintball fields (Hogback Mountain), and also a Colorado Springs field.
The courses themselves are good.
The cost of playing at the Edge is good.
The ref's and players bring the field down.
It's is a good field none the less. Represents the area of Wichita best. Other fields I have played at however are more professional about their work. And the paintball staff at The Edge can improve.

I have only played 1 field and that was hyperball "Played a tourney" The event went ok if you dont mind limited paint and 2000 psi fills. The reffing was biased if you practice there it seems all the call will go your way. If not your SOL.
I walked around the other fields, WOW I could build a big better built field in my back yard.
The ref's are to young and have no control, also the recent hot gun incident has turned me away...
I've played paintball for about 4 years off an on. The first time I played at the edge was a few years back. It was a smaller field then but they had good safty for all the players checking the guns every game. And all round fun.
Since then the field has grown in size and there are quite a bit more players out there now as well. I played a few weeks ago and all I can say is that I had a blast. But there was one thing that bothered me. They never check any ones FPS. Well in my group at lest. And when I was up there adjusting my gun to 285 FPS other people had theres above 310 FPS.
So for my review of this field is that Its a great place to play at, loads of fun. Paint prices are fair you can bring your own paint but for a small price. But they need to check every ones gun even if its just when they arived on the feild.
the refs at this field do not have the authority to deal with these situations, because the owner does not back them up, the kid with hot gun should have been booted, 2 of his 3 team mates were shooting in the 310-320fps range after being chronographed. I understand that accidents happen, however this behavior goes on too much there. it is true safety has been stepped up since the accident, however it will go back to normal in 6-8 weeks, it is sad that the owner reacts to the problem only after 2-3 weeks of defending actions of all involved on his side, instead of trying to fix the problem directly. it seems that the rule of thumb was see if it is a problem, how it will hurt my income, and then if yes i will react to it. the fields problems are solely the owners, if you feel the managment at field is weak and all know this then it is the owners failure to hire good responsible employees and management, a proper business owner would accept this and work on fixing it. the edge has been open since 1995 and the owner has blamed all problems on employees since 1995, he needs to accept responiblity for his failures, with a good staff this could be a great field(NOTE FIELD HAS 285FPS RULE).
