Safety isn't exactly a priority, but if there are any blatant violations, they take care of it. Every once in a while the chrony will be either broken, missing, or have a dead battery, but that's about as bad as it gets. And that's never a problem while I'm there, because I take my Master Chrony everywhere. I do remember one time where there was a group of guys were over shooting and generally being dicks about it, and Tony (the owner) went absolutely ballistic on their asses. But then Tony's one of those hot-headed Latin types. He fires an average of one of his employees every other week. None of them take it seriously.
The woods field really isn't woodsball. It's more like hyperball in the shade of some trees. Lots of corrugated tubing. Unless you're playing with a bunch of rentals, you're gonna want to bring something with a battery in it. On normal woods fields, I like to run a pump gun most of the time (like at Hot Shots). But playing pump on the woods fields there just isn't fun. I'd rather pump on the speedball field than the Rage woods fields. But if you like fast paced, tactically challenging games, Rage is the place for you. Those fields are NOT the kind of place where you can win by just sitting there and waiting for the other team to come to you. The field prettymuch forces you to outmaneuver your opponent or else get blindsided.
Actually, to put it into a kind of perspective, it's a bit like the plywood city that the airsofters use at Hot Shots, but with a few more places to hide between the major bunkers. It's real easy to move up a bunker and find yourself completely exposed to an opponent from an angle you didn't even see. It's not like the far woods field at Hot Shots where the whole game is prettymuch in front of you. Most of the game at Rage is to the right and left of you, with the occasional opponent hanging back taking pot shots from dead ahead. More games are won by turning the field than anything else.
The paint is pretty decent, and the fields are usually in nice condition. Just don't park too close to the speedball fields or there's a good chance your car will get shot. And bring some water and maybe a sammich, because the closest real concession is the Seven Eleven at the gas station across the street. And for God's sake, do NOT crack the seal on the Port-O-Potty. Opening that door is grounds for a serious case of gas poisoning along with a good smack to the head from anyone with powerful enough lungs to brave the stench you'll be emanating for the rest of the day.
