I absolutely love this place! There are 6 different fields there that are really fun. There is tires, town, tubes, bunkers, nam, and speedball. The paint is always DXS unless you get the low grade stuff. Refs are awesome, easy tank refills, big area to wait before your game, and they have Gatorade and Powerade. They also have bathrooms there unlike some places. My absolute favorite is town! so many buildings and barriers. Sometimes the speedball field isn't set up but it depends on the day. They also have tournaments there. The next one is June 4th.
Entry/air fee - $15
Rental package (gun, hopper, tank, mask) - $5
Drinks - $2
Paint (500) - Around $15 for DXS and $13 for low grade
Paint (2000) - $50 for DXS and around $40 for low grade
Great prices if you tell me.

Haven't played at most of the local fields, I have, however played at the Bunker in NE Oklahoma. The Bunker leans more toward my preference currently.
Directions to the Field:
Go South on US 71/i540/62, exit onto South 48 ST, turn onto West 412, turn Northwest onto County Road 58, Turn onto Taylor Road and you will see the sign eventually. Street address is 14179 Taylor Road, Springdale, Arkansas.
I give this one an 8/10, here is my reasoning:
Pro's: Friendly refs, great paint (I didn't have a single chop), fair rental guns, good maintenence on fields, a general good feeling about the environment there.
Con's: There was no food or water when I went there, can't get on 2nd story of buildings, some fields feel unbalanced (refering to available cover near or in the vicinity of the deploy zones).
really nice safety, i,ve not seen any mishaps there EVER! The fields are kept nicely and the staff are really helpful> prices are decent facilities kept clean but no food or etc... whatever that means... But all the guys down there really help and its a clean enviroment for family and friends where stories are told and morals are passed around.jk
I have gone to wild world 3 times, because it is the closest field to my home.
It is a safety regulated environment. you can actually be punished for not having a barrel plug in a certain number of times. and they wont fill up the air tank or fix a gun that is not working right without a plug in.
The refs are very nice and honest.
and the fields are maintained very well.
Last time i went (Nov 15th 2008) there were 6 courses.
***Nam- Good woodsball. there is a fort that is fun and made of tubes and wood boards. i wish there was more cover though. but dont let that stop you from playing the course.
***Tires- Brilliant. Some huge tires turned on their sides and an array of items in the middle. GREAT course.
***Town- Good, but could be better. Fun to play with large groups. But the far side of the course has a better set up than the close side
***Trenches- Good woodsball. wish the trenches ran through the whole field and some of the thorny bushes were cut down. but good course.
***Barrels and Barricades- worst course but still decent. fun for small matches but not for large groups. max is maybe a 4 V 4.
***Xball- This field is newer and they have nice grass and keep the inflatables in good shape. I love this field.
Everything is very reasonably priced. the group rates are really nice too. they have great paint too. they use different paint in winter ( i got busted for using "summer paint" i had brought in that i had purchased last time i went.) that has a thicker shell so it wont jam the guns. **i have rented every time. They used to have tippmann 98c as the rentals, which were pretty decent. but now they have tac 5s and i dont like it at all.
but i have my own gun now.**
i give it an 8 because the new rental guns are only ok. (fine for new players tho) and sometimes you have to bug the refs b4 they actually ref a game.
This is a great field for all types of play. They have GREAT speedball field with perfect grass and well cleaned bunkers. They also have a very fun scenario courses from the heavily wooded Nam. course, to the exciting Town course. This place is awesome. They also have excellent paint. They use fluid hydro, which always breaks on impact, and has a very bright fill. My final praise of this field is the management. All of the refs are great guys, and are willing to help you with almost any problem.
All in all, this has become a great field, and the best run field that i have ever seen in my local area in the time that I've been in the sport.
I give this field a 9/10 because although it is the best recreational field in NWA, or anywhere, for that matter, that i have ever been to, nothing's perfect, and as with any field, it could always be improved upon.
What can I say about Wild World? Its a great place with a great staff and even better... great courses! If you live in NWA this is the place to be! The town course is a bit small but still very addictive. Speedball has greatly improved and the tire course is fast and awesome. The refs are very laid back unless you start getting out of hand and that is the way they should be. I am a big fan of how they let you use multiple fields at once as one big playing course. Last time I was there they opened the speedball, town, and nam course for one big CTF match. Awesome! Last time I went, the field paint was of great quality. Always broke on contact! Perfect. All Smiles here. Peace.
Overall I give it a 9 out of 10 because nothings perfect. :)
point blank - had a regulation size X-Ball field and an ok woods ball field until it closed down.
ground zero - it had a nice town with crass and 2 small speed ball fields. it was the least expensive until they "closed down". (you have to have a party of 30+ in order for them to open).
Wild World used to be a horrible place to go paint balling, but they have done a total 360 in their customer service and in their fields. They are finally upgrading their gravel hyper-ball field to a grass sup-air field this spring. They also added a new "mini course" (it what me and my friends call it) that consists of some barrels, spools and what i think used to be the hood of a car. Another improvement they made/are making is that they added 2 new buildings to their town and are improving the second stories so you can actually go on them. The other three courses that wont be changed any time soon are their tires field, their Vietnam and their trenches course.
The only thing that i can think of that is bad about Wild World is that they are relatively expensive, (in order from ending up like Ground Zero and Point Blank) and that they don't really cater to the speed ball crowd.
Wild World recently got a new X-Ball field with grass!!! also, the owners are working very hard to improve all of their courses, from Nam to speedball
I am giving it an 8 because it is above average with the wide number of courses the park has and how great their customer service is with their course improvements but isn't great due to the lack of good speed ball.

Swat Extreme Paintball (Bella Vista)-It had turf and a speed ball field. Very nice.
Ground Zero Paintball (Siloam Springs)-Closed down now. It had grass and a nice town field. Very cheap.
Wild World used to be a cruddy field that only a few people played at. Now it is nicer and their businuess has taken off. The staff is pretty catious about saftey. They enforce the barrel condom rule and always make sure you have your mask on while you are on the playing field. They have five fields. The fields are hyperball, town, vietnam, trenches, and tires. The hyperball field is on rocky ground so it is extremely painfull to slide, but it is a pretty good field. I'm not much of a rec or woodsballer so I don't play their other fields very much, but I do play them from time to time. The town field is okay. One side has some woods on it. This side is good to go up on and flank people. The actually town part of the field is not all that great. Wild World's Vietnam field isn't that great either, but it is pretty fun to play on. The field is arranged in a circle around a dried up pond. If you go through the middle you can get behind the other team, but you run a big risk of getting shot. There aren't many bunkers in Nam. There trenches field is HORRIBLE. One team gets to start at the top of a hill and the other team has to start at the bottom of the hill. The team on top can just rain paint down on the bottom and the bottom team can't even get their paint halfway up the hill. There are trenches that run up and down the hill. One of the better fields there is tires. The bunkers are huge tractor tires. The field has great angles. The prices here are also pretty good. It is $14 for the entry fee and all day air and $50 for a case of paint. Their hours are 10-5 on saturday and 1-5 on Sunday. They really don't close until the last person leaves. The staff is all right. They might help you if you have a problem. Pretty much all the do is sit in a shack and shoot each other with airsoft guns. Pretty fun guys to hang out with. The only thing they do a good job of is reffing. They don't sell food, but they do sell water. I give this field an 8 because of it's staff.
Ground Zero, Point Blank, Paint Games Plus, Paintball Ridge, Springfield Paintball, Badboys In Rogers (closed now) The Underground and random others that couldn't outlast Wildworld
Directions to the Field:
take the old highway (i believe hwy 68) off of 412 toward siloam springs and then just follow the signs left....very easy to find
I used to play this field back in the day when the owners stopped taking care of it and just let it go to crap for some reason i have yet to figure out. Now it has been taken over by a great group of guys and is by far the best place to play anywhere close to NWA.
The have 5 fields right now that fit everyone's style of play so it keeps everyone happy and the staff is always willing to help with anything anyone needs. As for groups and just rec ballers it is very laid back (as long as you follow the safety rules) and can basically pick and choose what field you want to play whenever. You can stay with just your group or just pick up in a general recreational group depending on what you want. The workers have also just picked up new airball fields and weather permitting those will be up asap which will give two woodsball fields, two rec speedball fields, the town, and two new airball fields which should keep everyone happy.
This whole field and staff is there to please the customer and keep everyone happy and having a good time.
As for the fields right now there are two woodsball fields (Vietnam and the trenches) and then three more along the lines of speedball or at least smaller fields (tires, speedball, and the town). The owners are working very hard to get everything back up and running compared to how the last owners left it but as for now it is by far the best field in the area. Also at night they have the town lit up to play which is extremely exciting due to the shadows the buildings cause and being able to go through the woods and catch the other team off guard (hint).
Pricing is very reasonable, especially if you bring groups and the workers there are the best around. You won't find better refs no matter where you go as their main concern is your own safety and the same for you kids. Parents are more than welcome to come watch and or play so all in all this is the place to be if you live in the area or even come for a drive down even if you don't play in the area.
I have been playing this field for over a decade and its getting better fast so by all means just come one weekend and check it out and see if you like it and i know they will all be happy to help you with any questions or tech work you need done.
COME TO WILD WORLD ITS THE BEST!!!!

Point Blank.... if you like driving in the middle of nowhere in farmington.........and playing the same field( they only have one the other is always deflated)...... and playing the only the owners....and maybe one other person who hasn't yet played in Tonittown......its alright
Directions to the Field:
From 540..... go east on 412 for 6 miles, shortly after the lewis construction company make a right on to old hwy 68(county rd 58), 1/4 mile up the rd there will be a sign on the left that turns down a dirt rd, take it and follow the signs to wild world.
Wild World recently has gone under new ownership and it shows.......plus with ground zero closed they get alot of buisness..... which makes for VERY intense matches........... they got real quality people working...... the refs actually get envolved..... they help you on and off the feild.... its not geared towards the devide( its woodsball and speedballer friendly) the best thing about it the field is the variety of fields to play.... the tire field in the past was down.... but they've installed new poles for better netting.... the town is in the process of getting a face lift and adding some new buildings..... "Nam" is strait woods ball.... its one of the best ctf courses I have played..... and trenchs is plain awesome....... The hyper ball is a great setup..... most of the bunkers are cleared of rocks..... thats the only thing about the hyperball field that is bad, its a hard surface.... not the greatest for sliding but you can still do it...... all in all this is by far one of the best fields in this area....... the paint isnt expensive.... the owners are about having fun and making the field better constanly...... if you havent been out there recently check it out..... this field has done a complete 180 from my first encounter here..... now its the only field ill play at....... they are also clearing land for 2 more fields.....and they have got a few electro tippmans.not bad at all for a rental......check it out
