Paintball Ridge is one of the best places to play paintball in southwest Missouri. I play here several times a year and have always had a good time. The prices for field fees and paintballs are fair, and the fields are in good condition. The pro shop is stocked with a decent amount of gear.

Overall, if you want to come out and have a great time with your friends, this is the place to do it.

The guy who shot him was a ref that works there, so might want to be cautious about who you are playing with. They like to jump in there and make ridiculous teams like 5 pros against 15 kids...(one of which being mine!) they are still kids... I don't see the fun in owning a bunch of 10 year olds but whatever.
