Located inside a gutted old AMF bowling ally you would be amazed as to how well it actually works. The field size is perfect and if it was not for the slippery surface it would be absolutely spectacular. It is a great time and the people there are cool. My only negative opinion about the place is slippery floors and lazy reffing. In my opinion the flooring needs to be taken care of and refs need to be physically present on the playing field while a game is being played regardless of how many people are in the game. Other than that lots of fun, decent paint prices and fees. Oh yes and the Air bunkers are full or air! not like other places I have been to where they are to lazy to fill them up. So 280paintball.

The prices are competitive and the service and competition is always great Definitely my favorite place to play in KC and one of the best fields I've ever been to, as it gets better every time I go there. If your looking to improve your game, this is the place to play.

Full sized indoor speedball field for the 10 months out of the year in KC when you'd rather be playing indoors. Fair prices, nice field, helpful employees, and good competition makes it the top field in the area. If you haven't checked it out yet then I strongly recommended you do. Saturday if your newer or Sunday for a good grind.

I hate playing at 280. Most of the players are wipers and cheaters, the refs couldn't care less about the field and the paint just sucks. I guess if you only ever wanna play speedball, you don't have too many options around KC, but if you just wanna play some fun paintball, avoid 280 at all costs.

I feel bad for the rentals, too, the refs do nothing to protect them from the experienced players and they usually just end up getting raped. Sucks to be them.

This happened in 2009 but I felt the need to write this after beating 280's team in a tourney today lol.

My friend and I just started out in speedball with low-end speed guns at the time. (Dynasty Shocker-Etek1) We get there and not a sole in sight besides 2 refs. They obviously took our money for a field fee instead of offering to hold off unless people don't show. Bored and pissed 25 mins of doing nothing, My friend and I 1v1. Right off the break I run right side and try to slow stop into a bunker. I slide about 5 feet and fall right on my elbow outside of the playing field onto TILE. This field is absolute **** when it comes to running. So slippery and no ****s given on attempting a clean.

Ok so that was already enough to never want to come back again. But this next part is why ill never go back. The 2 refs by now know we are extremely new to speedball and have seen what we've shot. They offer to 2v2 us for "fun". It was a cool gesture at first. Before we started I approached them saying "ok were kinda new so take that as you will."
"O you have nothing to worry about were no pros".
They didnt even chrono their guns. Off the break the ref hits me 4 times when i ran back left. I heard a big POP on my belt and thought WTF was that? They were shooting sooo ****ing hott he shot a HOLE in my pod from base to base. I could not even believe how hot of a shot that could even be to achieve this 40-50 yards away. Along with the pod I was lit up on the chest. But thats part of the game didnt care.

I talked to a jaegers guy the other day and he put it best. If/When refs play. They dont play/their targets for the customers. Thats well put and I dont mind them going at us but how hot they were shooting and how serious they went at a few newbies was ridiculous. Jaegers now has my money and service. 280 can rot in the bowling alley.

I've played at the field numerous times, and was once sponsored by them when Tremor was around.

Since I started playing here and now, there have been quite a few improvements. The turfs is 20x better than the carpet. A LOT better traction.

Ryan has since added some more staff members, though how involved the reffing is is iffy. But most the regulars know eachother and we honor the honor system. There's no point in cheating at practice, unless you're that low.

And to blasting new comers, it doesn't happen. I was just there the past weekend and we didn't even play a single game with them. Hell, we even took our guns off ramping to semi to cater to some of the not-so-experienced/not newcomers.

If you're looking for a fun time, I'd recommend 280. Team practices are also held time to time, but the usual turn out is pretty limited.
