Sorry it took so long to get a review out. I didn't see many reviews on this field so I thought I'd put my $0.02 down...

Location is great. It's just about one minute off of an I-95 Exit. I used Mapquest the first time and had no trouble at all and the directions were so simple that I easily backtracked my way back to the highway at the end of the day.
My first impression pulling into the parking lot of Monster Paintball was "Wow" just because I'm not used to seeing paintball fields in such pristine looking buildings. Even the outside of this building looked brand spanking new and it was not at all what I expected after seeing many local fields around here in old, rundown, department store buildings etc.
The pricing here is definitely competitive. It's $65 a case with entry/air for the lower quality and it's $80 a case with entry/air for the higher quality Draxxus paint. These prices are a bit cheaper than other indoor fields in the area and they are even cheaper than some outdoor fields. There is also the reball facility where you pay for the time used. There are snapcages and a drill field to practice on. And the reball fees are rather inexpensive. Overall, pricing is quite competitive.
The proshop is well stocked and very clean/new looking. The guy who does repairs their is very qualified and has a lot of experience and knowledge and can be very helpful at times. They've got just about everything you could need from ten different kinds of JT Spectra 260 Lenses to harder to find guns such as Macdev Droids.
The reball facility is immediately attractive just because of its low cost. There is a drill field and there are snapcages to practice with. I've used this facility several times. It's usually not very crowded. I recommend going with a friend on a weeknight or something when hardly anyone else or noone is there as it becomes a pretty cool place to just hang out and chill. I was pretty amazed by how much reball made me improve the fundamentals of the sport that often get looked over when playing real paintball. This is also the first reball facility in Massachusetts. And they only use top quality REBALLS, not v-balls, z-balls, ruballs, mightyballs, or any other of those low quality imitators.
The field is great. I mean the owners, Nancy and Tony, spared absolutely 0 expense when it came to putting up this field. First let's start with the field itself. It's a top quality X-Ball field, what more could we ask for? The refs work really hard to keep it clean by constantly removing paintballs from the field and cleaning paint off the bunkers to eliminate bunker rub vs. hit problems. Again, it really seems like Nancy and Tony really spared no expense, as if this is the utopia of a paintball field. They have top quality turf in both the field and reball facilities that is quite fun to play on while at the same time not being too slippery.
This is a true family business as the two owners and even their kids are always there. The staff is knowledgeable and I believe all of them play paintball at a competitive level so they are quite dedicated to their job. They do actually ref and will get down and dirty with paint checks when necessary and are surely not the infamous slacker type refs that most of us are nearly accustomed to.
I was initially drawn to this field because of it's good location and cheap pricing. This field is the utopia of a paintball field just because these guys did not let cost stop them from building a dream field. From the security system, to the proshop, to the field itself, everything is topnotch. I tried to find some negatives to list in this review but it was surprisingly hard as it is usually really easy to faults in paintball fields. Anyways, my conclusion is that Monster Paintball in Woburn, MA is up there as one of the best fields in New England and I highly recommend that anyone who hasn't seen it yet, head down there for some quality Paintball.
