As mentioned in the pros, the staff and regulars here are *immensely* friendly and helpful. They are very heavily a woodsball field, but do have one semi-speedball, which is used mainly to warm up the new guys at the beginning of the day, or a quick match on the way back from the Village course. They have 6 fields in total, each one being wildly different than the other.
"Village" is a short walk from the staging area, and is probably the most played course. It is setup, as the name suggests, like a small village. It has three single story buildings, and two two story buildings, with various cover scattered in between. There is a respectable creek that runs the entire length of the northern side of the field, which is used as a boundary, and is great for flanking, if you know what you are doing. The main gametypes played on this course are CtF, Team Elimination, and Bomb Diffusal.
"Castle" is the aforementioned speedball-esque course. There's not much to say about it, besides the games are over crazy fast, no matter if it's pros or complete beginners playing, hence the warm-up matches. Pretty much the only game type played here is Team Elimination.
"The Island" is on the other side of the creek that runs alongside "Village", and the creek actually does split around it, making it a true island, with a decent sized creek/gully (depending on the weather) surrounding it. On the island is the largest structure at Triggertyme, a multi-story fort. The main game types for this are Attack/Defend, Infiltrate, and depending on the group size, it is sometimes put into play as part of "Village".
"Bunker Hill" is a very simple one story structure, with raised towers overlooking a crazy steep hill, with a creek at the bottom. Pretty much the only game type played here is "Infiltrate", and you need some serious strategy to do so, considering the terrain.
"Tower" consists of a simple two story tower, smack in the middle of a small island, with a small ditch/moat (depending on the weather), and heavy woods surrounding that. This course is used for either Attack/Defend, or an objective based game, where you need to get three barrels off of the island, without getting shot.
"Airport" is 30 yards of dense woods on all sides, surrounding an open area with scattered cover, a single tower on the edge, and an airplane crashed right in the middle, hence the name. It is Triggertyme's second most played field, and is one *hell* of a hike, but not too bad. There are many ways to play this map, including sneaking around the edges, capturing the tower, playing like a speedball course, and straight up charging up the middle. Gametypes played here are either Team Elimination, Single Flag CtF, or Multiflag CtF.
Regarding some of the negative reviews, I agree, they did used to be pretty bad about safety, and the hpa service wasn't too great, but they have had some major reformations since then. They are extremely strict about safety, but not to the point of being a**holes about it, and the though the hpa only fills to 3000, it is super fast, and always up.
To sum it all up, I've been playing paintball for 7 years at many different places, including all of my friend's houses, and have never had more fun than at Triggertyme. If you come, ask one of the regulars for Luke, or "The Captain". I'm there almost every weekend, and love to help anyone love the sport of paintball.
