I copied most of the above stuff from their website mentioned earlier, so you can somewhat imagine what it is like. Check their website out for additional info, waivers, contact info etc. All credit goes to them.
Now I am going to talk about my personal impression and how it went.
You come to the parking lot, the "HQ" (sign in/rental building) is located right next to the parking lot. After you signed in, paid and enough people have arrived they give you a safety lesson; the lesson includes when/where/how to use/wear the mask. A basic lesson about your Marker+Hopper; how to use it, how to secure it (putting barrel condom on it, operating the safety button etc) and about your gas tank and its gauge. They ask you if you have questions which they answer them with great detail. After that lesson is done you go back to the "HQ" building and they give you your Marker, Mask and your Pb's in a bag. You are then asked to put the marker on the gun rack where you will load it. The ref is with the group all the time and makes sure people are being safe, people can only take their loaded marker out of the rack once everybody has put their mask on. After all that is done we head down to the neutral zone where there is another gun rack where you will be asked again to put your marker on and a couple of tables with a safety net around it (that is the place where you are allowed to take your mask off). The ref tells you about the field and the game type you will be playing, once everybody knows the rules you take your gun (while masks are on) and go out on the field where you remove the barrel condom/plug, you head to your base and once the ref says GO you start playing. I felt very safe on the field, the ref/staff really make sure people have their masks on when playing or not being in the neutral zone and they also check that people put their barrel plugs/condoms on when needed (The refs are being safe as well all the time). IMO the staff is experienced and they enforce safety very well, and they make sure everybody knows the general/safety rules. In between games you are allowed to go for gas refills and to buy additional pb's when needed. I personally recommend the field for their professional (and friendly) staff, safety standards and variety of game types/fields they have.
This is my first field review, sorry if I left anything out or it is crap. If you have any questions please ask. NOTE that the info is from when I played, it may have changed meanwhile.
Have a nice day.
Dan
