I've played at fields throughout the tri-state. I've played in Nashville all the way to Canton, Ohio. There aren't many to fields in the southern West Virginia are, which is unfortunate.
I've played at "grand" Scary Creek a few times (for reasons to be enclosed). The field is in your typical red neck hollar (no offense), but pretty easy to find. In the area the field is located, it is based for the more woodsball crowd. There are a couple fields, an Urban field, and an "in-progress" speedball field (kind of a joke). The Urban field, is a pretty good time. There is a building, a couple trailers, a bus, and many good obstacles that will tickle your fancy. The speedball field is 2x4's with sheets wrapped around them for doritos, unless they've made some changes since my last visit, which has been awhile.
Everyone knows that paintball is an expensive sport. Scary Creek makes paintball a rediculously expensive sport. It kind of makes me sick to be honest. The paint is decent quality, but more expensive than some of the highest quality paint there is out there. I bought some Empire paint that was freaking $75 bucks a case. They fill your co2 by the fill, which is a rip off, sense it is a very cheap gas and I understand making a profit, but they've been in business for some time. They also fill HP tanks, but only to 3000, which is still HP, but with the prices they have, they should get a booster or sell their compressor and get a 4500 one.
Some plus sides. The people that run the field are nice, especially the lady. It is also family run, which is nice to see. They are tight on rules and safety which is great, because it keeps people safe.
I love the sport, but to be honest I would love to see some competition in the southern West Virginia area. The sport is growing and this place has a monopoly on it in the area right now. Their prices are too high, and it could be upgraded with the loyal players they have. I know some guys that love it, but I know a lot more that don't. You pick which side you're on.
To be honest. If there was a good venue that put some competitoin on Scary Creek I believe it would be gone in a hurry.
