Like many others I've really enjoyed playing here because of the fields, refs and pro shop staff.

Unfortunately there techs are bottom grade. I've used them twice and been very dissatisfied both times. The second time I used them i brought my board in for them to simply re-attach a LED. without my knowledge they sent it out for repair (could have done that myself), lost my board, gave me and someone else the same ticket number and took 3 months to right everything.(the short story) For my troubles they offered me 25 bucks off on a new gun, tank and barrel back combo. GARBAGE! do not use their techs. absolutely horrible.

But def play there.

PBE is a fun place because of its variety of fields, and how one has a MG. Now i know that I put workers in Pros and Cons and I did that because the workers like staff inside were friendly and chill. The refs are different, some just don't care and do whatever. They don't watch that often so if you hit someone, expect them to wipe and refs won't even see. Now some refs pay attention, chill, and funny.

Their inside store is a bit expensive, I can find things cheaper. I bought a exalt swab and it was around $150 I'm pretty sure. I can find a good one for $5 but i needed one so I bought it. Somethings were well priced while others were a nightmare. Their food was pretty cheap and good.

Even though the cons, PBE is a really fun place and if you go with you kids, there is Santa village which is alittle amusement park. Pretty cool how its together. So if your looking for a wide variety of fields, playing style and good/funny refs than you should check this place out! :0

Pros: Indoor speedball, well lit, and ref on field.
Cons: distance
I had a great time as a first time to the place. Lights are great inside. There was a ref getting games ran through quick and making calls on people trying to play on. Only con was the pricing but that is still nit picking because it is not that bad for everything you get compared to other locations so that is not even a con. Personal con is the distance since it is kind of out there for me.

Paintball Explosion is a great place to go to. They have a large variety of field available for both woodsball and speedball players. The refs do a good job splitting groups to ensure games are fun and competitive at the same time. Ownership is always present at the field which shows customers that they care not only about the sport or their business, but also about customers.
