Red Fox Paintball- Planet Paintball beats this field just by the friendly staff and amazing prices
Alamo/Upstate/PBC (one and the same now)- Planet Paintballs prices are about 20 to 30% lower than PBC, Planets hyperball fields are still up and running, as opposed to pbc, and planets friendly staff and ever so helpful techs blow away the competition.
Directions to the Field:
Interstate 85 to Exit 63, heading towards Moore (If you were heading North, thats a right off the exit, south would be a left off the exit). Its EXACTLY 5 miles down the road so watch your odometer, and take a right on Blackwood Store road. Maybe a mile down that road, you'll see a sign on your right, and DIRECTLY AFTER that sign is the entrance so be sure to slow down.
I came to Planet Paintball not knowing what to expect. I found a brotherhood of ballers just like myself, wanting to bring fun back into paintball, and practice up on our tournament experience at the same time.
Their staff members and refs are amazing, they are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your day of play. The outlook for the future of Planet Paintball is going to be a good one, as that they are planning to expand, and from what I've heard, its gonna be sick.
Their staging area is somewhat shaded by trees so it doesnt get extremely hot when you are readying your gear. The players I have came across so far are very friendly, and everyone dropped the "agg" attitude when we left our cars. Parking, at the moment, is limited.
They are open, as far as I know, from 8 or 9 in the morning, till its long past dark every Saturday and Sunday.
And their prices....Man, these are a life saver. I used to blow a hundred bucks easy on field fee, air and a case at PBC, which is why my attendance declined. But at around 60 for my first case and all my fees out of the way, that made playing every weekend enjoyable to my state of mind and my wallet again. Also, they allow you to bring your own paint, but it is a $10 surcharge for it. So if you feel the need to buy cheaper or more expensive paint, they aren't going to nazi you out of your favorite paint. But from my experience, their white box shoots pretty nicely, and they carry Heat and Nightmare, which shoots amazingly accurate.
If you are feeling like the prices of your current field have you one foot in the ground financially, or if the attitudes of your current field players and staff have you second guessing paintball, or even if you are just looking for something a little different, come check out Planet Paintball.
