Review: Paintball Charleston is a great field if you enjoy playing in the woodsball spectrum. Serivce was excellent from start to finish, and attendence at the field was great. The refs do the best they can, though much of the woodsballing is done on the honor system.

Speedball was almost noexistant here. They do have 2 decent speedball fields, but the day I was there they were barred from recreational use for team practices. Being an avid speedballer (but without my team) I was kind of upset that I couldn't play, or that they didn't leave one field to practice and the other to rec players.

Scenario field: Their scenario field is pretty nice. It has a large 2 story castle in the center, a small village, a road complete with an 18 wheeler, and a woods all in one field. That made for an excellent, fast paced, and out and out fun game with house to house firefighting and lots of ambushes and sniper action. They even through in realistic events like airstrikes in certain areas of the field, at the player's request.

Staff: The staff consisted of a few adult refferees (Probably also the field's owners) that seemed to genuinely love the sport of paintball. They were anal about safety, which is a very good thing, and even spent some time hanging out and talking with groups of players. The rest of the staff were younger kids that didn't do quite such a good job, some seemed like they wanted to play more than ref, but all in all the service was very good.

On site food: Yes! Burger stand on site, great for grabbing some lunch mid day.

Prices: This field was fairly expensive, but still managable. Entry was $20 a person, but paint ran $50 for a case of ZAP paintballs, which I felt was a bit over the top. They also did not provide all day air, so every time I needed to get my 68/45 refilled, I was outed $4. Their on-site repair equipment was fairly expensive ($5 for an elbow) and their store staff was fair unknolegable about how to repair a broken gun.

My rating: I give this field an 8/10, mostly because of its lack of speedballing, and somewhat steep prices. However, what it lacked in speedballing it made up for in scenarioballing, and at least matched toe to toe with most other woodsball fields I've been to. If I head down that way again I will certainly stop by and play.
