This place is combined with a shooting range and I'd have to say it should just stick to being a shooting range.

They have one decent CQB field, but thats about all there is good to say about this place.

No Field side fill stations. You have to walk all the way back to the main shop to get air and they don't even let you fill yourself so it takes forever.

The biggest con about this place I'd have to say is safety. People walk around on the fields with no mask on and no barrel covers on. At one point a game was going and people were taking their mask off while coming off the field and people were still shooting!

In conclusion, I'll never go back there if it were the last field for 100 miles.

This place is mainly a shooting range with paintball as an after thought. Played there a whole Saturday and never saw a single staff member leave the shop and check out what was happening on the field. people taking off masks on the urban field as they walked off was a normal occurrence, and it was left to more experienced players who were there to have fun to keep on eye on everyone. There is no one enforcing chrono limits, so you'll have no idea what you are getting shot at with. I'd say whoever owns this place just keeps the field going for an extra buck on the weekends. Its a real shame because it has potential to be a great family oriented paintball ppark

PS, they charge $9 per hpa tank fill if you just go there to get your tank filled so go elsewhere. They don't even fill past 3500psi. What a rip off. Go play somewhere that the owner actually cares about the sport, I know that I won't be going back unless they make major improvements.

I am very disappointed in this field and I dont think I will return. There was a total lack of safety and the refs didnt seem to care one bit. In the staging area no one used any sort of protection, everyone was walking around with no barrel condom on or using devices that shouldnt have been used. I at one point I even had to grab some dudes barrel because he was pointing a loaded aired up gun right at a 5 month old baby. On the field we saw pretty much everyone take their masks off, even in the middle of a big firefight in the city, refs were doing it as well. I only got shot out twice yesterday but got shot probably 25 times leaving the field with my hand and gun in the air walking through areas where there was no fire fights, I would say something to the refs and they would just shrug. My brother got shot in the face because of some overshooting cheap shot.

The back field was pretty bad and a completely unfair walk and not nearly as much cover. It didnt work out well for a scenario at all. This field would make a fun rec ball field but I would not go back for a big game, there was a complete lack of safety
