Just to comment on a great field, that enforces the rules!! ( unlike other fields) Just this week they got 6 new huge lights!! The Airball Field is so much brighter!! I highly recommend coming and checking this out. The Refs were very freindly during my group this morning, they actually enforce the rules. The would not just stand on the sideline and call you out, the bald one would come in and pull you out. The woman behind the counter goes over the rules very well!! She was very nice to us!! One of the guys in our group had gun problems, and the owners son helped me out, and got his gun going real quick!! I am going to start coming to this field more often.. The new lights make alot of difference!!!
Splat: better pro shop by far, rent better equipment, though this is no longer a problem for me.
Well my buddy went to intense for his birthday in february cuz we didn't feel like playing on an outdoor field in the winter. We get into the pro shop/staging area, and the people were very good about hammering the rules to everyone, even those of us who had played for many years. Their prices i thought were reasonable, $20 to play for 3 hours with all day air and 500 rounds of paint (this rate came through our group) Now, when we finally got onto the field, our problems begin. First, the ground is covered in wood chips (kinda painful when you slide into the snake). The place is not well lit at all, if you're on the team who's in the near side to start and you play back, good luck finding they're back guys, cuz the far side has one light, that's it. The refs are pretty good at what they do, but they're not good at figuring out what's wrong on a 98C. They lost the sear spring on my buddy's 98C. Also, they rent out Co2 (not gonna fault them for this, it's just splat rents hpa), and their 98s that they rent shoot like they haven't been cleaned for some time. However, one thing that i did like is they provide you with spray bottles for your goggles in the staging area, and they actually have cold drinks that you can buy fairly cheaply (a 12 oz can for $.50). Overall, i give intense an eight, because their miscellanious things such as spray bottles are pretty nice to have, and they hammer saftey a lot which is very good, However, i don't like the wood chips, more lights wouldn't hurt at all, and they managed to lose one of the most important parts on a 98C (which is the one of the hardes marker to break if you ask me.)

This field is right off of the highway. There is no sign on the outside that says Intense, it just says paintball on the outside in big, red, letters.
This field is ok, not the best, jst ok, i don't like how there is no woods ball field, and how it is indoor. Also, the lighting on the inside is not the best. i cannot see ne thing w/ a little fog in my mask. The staging area is pretty nice. Also the workers there and the refs there r very friendly and they'll tell you exactly what's wrong with your gun.

Period of Field Use:
September 20th, 2005
Other Fields in the Area:
TPA - Easily the best field ever, played tournies there, not only were the refs, and mike helpful and nice, but the players were as well.
Directions to the Field:
It goes like this: The proshop.(with the indoor fields) to the left is a bowling alley (It's connected, it and the proshop basically share one giant building, there's a wall inbetween the alley, and the proshop though. Then to the left of the bowling alley is the outdoor hyberball field.
This business is I think average, safety is strictly enforced, with 2 warnings, then the player being removed from the field, until he returns his mask to his face. The refs are nice, a little on the uncommunicative side (It's almost as if they refused to verbally alert me to the fact that I was hit, they just kind of nodded, and looked at me, even though I didn't say anything). The woman there looked as if she was holding some mean remark back. She had that look of distaste on her face although she never said anything bad, and promptly granted all my requests for paint, fills etc. Their proshop is filled to the brim with upgrades, and markers hanging from the wall, and all markers were cleaned if need be. Their staging area is actually on the other side of the room from the proshop with picnic tables. The indoor airball field, and the outdoor hyperball field are almost pristine. Those 2 fields are very clean, although the mulch smells like something died. However the indoor hyperball field was coated in a layer of extremely old paint. It looked as if the indoor hyperball field was never once cleaned of paint, and the barrels had lids that went slightly into the barrel (looked like this: ___/ ) and the barrel was filled from the lid to the top of the brim with paint! I tried my best to avoid rubbing against the tubes. The prices were a little high, nothing rediculous though. Overall we had a blast except for the mean looking lady, and the paint covered indoor hyperball field (we only tried that field twice). I would definetly go back although I would only play in the indoor hyperball field if they cleaned it off.

This place is great the hyperball field is well mantained and has a nice layout the airball field is alot of fun too. They have a large proshop and rentals are very nice too. They are very nice to kids that have never played before. The paint there is good too. It is very cheap. They have indoor and outdoor courses. The indoor course is great for winter because theyre the only place open. The refs are good they come over when they think you are hit or call a paintcheck to make sure youre hit or if it bounced. Everthing there is affordable and its a great time. The owner there is realy nice i bought my first gun there and he was very helpful his son did a lot of work on my nerve and it is shooting great now he put new ball detents on,adjusted the trigger, put a volumizer on and a new ASA, he helped me figure out how to program my board. Its the best place for a person that has never played to go there. The reason is because there is a no bunkering rule and most of the more expericed players play airball and they new players can play hyperball. The chrono limit is lower so it wont hurt as much. They have a large room with table and chairs you can put your stuff on. They have drinks and other snacks you can purchase there. These are the store hours
Tuesday ............... 5:00pm to 8:30pm
Friday .................. 5:00pm to 10:00pm
Saturday .............. 4:00pm to 10:00pm
Sunday ................ 2:00pm to 7:00pm
They are also Smart Parts Authorized Tech Support. So they are very helpful with smart part guns.
They have or other 10/10 for having great staff,great prices and great fields, and a friendly owner, for always being open and being smart parts authorized

Other Fields in the Area:
splat at canal fulton- way better
ok, so my impression first driving up.
Right off alliance exit, easy to get to.
The owner, Dan, was very friendly, but his wife leaves me feeling unwanted at the field.
Me and my buddy go up, we're both 17. He lies and says he's 18 so he can sign for himself and I. She gives us dirty looks and says "I know, he's not 18, and I don't appreciate a bunch of liars coming in hear and lying to my face". Granted we were blatantly lying to her. But she had no right to call us liars, how does she know he's not 18? We're her customers, paying to play there. She should at least be cool the waivers were signed, suppose i get stabbed by a big piece of mulch right thru my neck. Would she be in trouble? No. My waiver was signed by someone who claimed to be 18. Not her problem. So she explains the rules, and informs me of the no bunkering rule. We have to yell surrender within 15ft of the person. Because "this is rec play, not tourneys" Ok. I ask her if we have to surrender or if we can shoot the person. Again except with more attitude she reminds me "this is rec play, not tourneys". So she rings me up for my entry, asks me if i want all day air, and then charges me for 1/2 case. Dosen't ask if I want more. So w/e. I paid my $42. Got my stuff ready, and went to chrono in, they chrono at 260. The hyperball field is fairly long, so there is not point in laning because everyball will bounce. The field smells HORRIBLE. This mulch they had covering the floor was soggy with paint, sweat and god knows what else. Dark as night, and unsymettrical. (sp?)
Maybe it was just the day I went, but it was me and my buddy against all noobs either with rentals or with shockers...weird...
Refs leave something to be desired. I was shot right in the mouth, I yell across the field if I was hit and the ref said "no". Did he come to look? No. The refs have to stand on the 2 sides of the field because of the weird design of the field. Not their fault. But I can't tell you how many times I ask if I was hit, and the ref would nod or shake their head. I couldn't see this nod or shake because they didn't really move their head much, so i'd have to ask 3-4 times before they'd answer me verbally. They didn't really enforce the surrender rule, I myself went to yell surrender at seperate people and was answered with a cap being busted on me. No problem. But if I can't do it, they shouldn't be able to either. Whenever I ask if I was within 15 ft of a player they'd reply "uhhhh...I dunno". Great, just great. Masks rule was enforced. It was a safe field.
Staff was ok, only problem I had was with the lady being VERY rude.
Bottom line- Field's dark
Tons of noobs
Low chrono limit
unsymettrical hyperball field
I guess it'll have to do for now, until the spring time when splat opens up.
Not really a superfun time, but it is paintball.
This place is pretty awesome. I only played indoors. The staff there is nice and the prices are great, only $48 a case. Only bad thing I can say is that it is a little smelly and the airball field is a bit small but it didn't really matter. Would recomment this field to anybody who has a chance to go.
This paintball field has to be one of the best i've ever been at. Heres the breakdown...
Location- This is located in the Alliance exit, right off the highway in Canton. THis was an easy to acces area, only problem for me it's just too far away.
Staff- The proshop staff is very knowledable. They know their stuff, and if you have a problem, they can help you with it.
Field- They have two fields, one large hyperball field, and a smaller air ball field (5 man)
The interior is a bit dark, i wore smoke lenses when i went, so remeber to bring clear lenses. THe hyperball is is a bit messy to my taste. The pipes set up is great, but when you tuck in and get a little too close to the pipes, you get a good amount of paint on yourself. The airball field is much cleaner, the bunkrs are wiped down after a set of two or three games. The terrain here is truly preference. It is a mixture of dirt, paint shells, and what nots. For some, its too muddy and slippery. For me, yeah it's all that, but it's awsome to slide in and crawl. There is a slight stench, this has to be from the paint that is there, and the mixture of terrain used. But, yuo'll get used to it quick.
Refs-These guys are the workforce here. Fully staffed and do there job to the fullest. You want a paint check, you get the paintcheck quick. You are a rental who doesnt know squat, they'll help you. A FPS of 265 is heavily forced. It's indoors, theres no need to be shooting at 300 FPS. THere is a 15-feet no bunkering rule. THis is if you are within clear shot of another player, you must tell the player to surrender. If he doesn't well, go have it you way. Another very well enforced rule is the goggles on rule. First time its a warning, second time, its a game sat out, third and lastly, well, you're kicked out. It's your saftey not theirs....These guys are there and do a great job. Don't make it harder for them, if you're out, then get out., and play safe.
Atmosphere- I find this place to have a diverse players. You have rentals consisting of 98's, the ion crowd, and the more experienced players. They mix up the teams every time, so its always a challenge. Everybody is knowledgable and are ready to have a great time playing
Pricing- Of course, the prices. Well, put it this way, this place is cheap. I am after all comparing it to my other field pinnacle woods. PW charges a $35 entery, $10 for all day air, and $78 a case of paint. At intense, its $10 ($5 for me, special), $7 all day air, and $48 a case. Such a huge difference. The paint is good too. For $48 you get Diablo heat. Shoots stright and performs great. This field uses field only paint, but I'm not complaining. Also, everyday paintball parts are very well priced. Gloves, swabs, tank covers, etc, it makes other stores look bad.
Enjoyment factor- yes, there is a factor for this too. For a total of 5 hours i was there, i played at least 30 games, consisting of speedball and hyperball. Games are always up and running. The staff is very helpful to new players, and yet, still caters to the other crowd. Games are always different and never the same. For the $60 i payed, i played a ton of games, got a large amount of paint, unlimited air fills. Got so many out, and had many memorable moves. This is just a phonomenal place to play.
Bottom line- Great place to play, its winter, so ball indoors don't put your stuff away. If you;re going to be in there area, and is up for a challenge, i'd hit this place up. It's trully one of a kind, and heck it's paintball, its fun.
I've played at this field a few times and I've got nothing bad to state about them. They give you good quality paint and the rentals are kept in good shape( usually tippman 98 customs). There refs are fair and nice and they always give you good deals on merchandise. The fields also are awesome except that the indoor ones are pretty dark. i recommend this field to anyone looking for a place to play.
This was an ok field, except it was Dark and Small. The airball was nice, but i didnt like the setup. The hyperball was big, but too dark for me to see. When the opened up both fields, it was too dark and big, so i didnt like that. If we would have played airball all day, it would have been better. I hear they have an outdoor field, but we didnt play on that so I dont know.
