This place is also known as El Rancho De Pas.

Cons:
No game time limits.
Splintering and half standing wooden structures and rusty nails everywhere. It was like playing in an old scrap yard.
Refs screwed around the whole time.
Players got overshot a lot because refs weren't very sharp on the call outs.
Let players, even 8 year olds, fill their own air? Are you crazy?
Only have 3000psi.
Paint was crap, even though they were robbing you for it. But that's how most fields make their money. These guys were selling mid-grade paint for $80 a case and garbage walmart paint for $55 a case. Most fields at least give you really good paint for $80, and playable paint for $50 a case. The $55 paint you could throw at a rock and it would bounce like a rubber ball.
Allow blind shooting while gun shots and arm shots don't count. WHAT?
Played about 7 games in 5 hours... horrible.
Rentals looked like they have been rotting in a muddy river for 10 years.

Pros:
Refs were polite. There's no argument there.
All of the fields (all 4 of them) were near the rec center. So you could leave your gear there and refill everything quickly.

Final Thoughts:
I can write another 2 pages of complaints but I'll save you the rant.

The field has a lot of potential and I hope they make it better. Until then, play at your own discretion.

Pros: Fun fields, nice staff, not much bull****.
Cons: Expensive paint, rentals, number of games played
I've played there several times and it's pretty fun but in like 6 hours you might get in 6-8 games and the games don't even last an hour or even a half hour like you would expect so there's a lot of waiting. Good variety of fields but a lot of the bunkers are crappy and you can get hurt pretty easily if your not care full around them. Field maintenance sucks really bad there is usually lots of random crap all over the fields and the staff doesn't do much to clean it up. Paint is $55 a case for empire custom blend that's pretty old and $10 for entry and $5 for a rental so it can get pretty pricy, and for a non- profit origination that's just ridiculous. The fields going down the ****ter they only had 2 open plays for the whole spring and they don't accept private groups as far as I know. The fields are fun but I don't think they're going to be around much longer.

Cons: No speeds ball. Paint price
Ok i have been coming here for 5 and a half almost 6 years. they have changed management and before the manager/owner wasnt the GREAATEST but was fairly decent. paint was a major con and they had some really bad bunkers. after a lot of work Jake that manager stepped down and Andy took over, since then the ranch has been nothing but amazing for non xball paintball. not really scenario games but still make up special rules to typical games that make everything interesting. Refs are great but very lacking, paint is now diablo heat and premium gold. which was what they have been using for at least 3 years at least now. premium gold breaks when lightly throwing it at a many things and heat is meh. prices suck though, 55 for heat and 70 for premium. other then lacking staff and paint prices its a great place. also almost all the staff there knows how to fix most guns. so if somethign breaks, your usually okay.

212 Paintball Overall, it's a fun field to play at. The staff were knowledgeable, and the paint was cheap. I'll be going by there the next time I'm in town, for sure.
