I've been coming to this park since the day it first opened. In its first year, this was an amazing park. There were so many fields and games were always going on. The refs were fantastic as they were actual ballers that played the game and respected you as a fellow paintballer. That mentality has changed. The refs there now are pathetic. They now just hire anybody and they are incredibly disrespectful to the customers. If you don't use an ego/rotor combo your not considered a good player by the staff. They spend alot of time goofing off and hardly make and good calls. They used to have(I dont know if he still works there) a ref named Brandon G who was suppose to watch a game of first timers vs some amateur tourney players, but he much rather flirt with one of his female co-workers. I had to intervene after the kids were getting bonus balled like nothing else and I gave Brandon H***. Its a shame, this place was heaven when it first opened. It had everything to be a great place that was accepting of both first timers and seasoned players, but poor choices of employees have brought this field down.

Great park in the Chicagoland area. The owners are always present, either greeting people in the pro shop, walking the grounds talking with patrons, or even on the field exchanging fire. They usually break up the open players into beginner and advanced to allow the beginners to still have fun while not getting over shot or taken advantage of by more experienced players. My only concern lately is some of the refs lacking experience on the field, mid game. Walking in the line of fire, failing to use hand signals, and starting one side later than the other at the beginning of the game makes for a frustrating outting. Key word is SOME. It's early summer so I'm sure they will get the hang of it.

Really nice indoor field I havent played outside yet as Ive only started playing there this winter but from what I saw between practice the outdoor fields look super fun. Also this field has to have the most attractive staff I have ever seen at a field, props for hiring the ladies.
