I played a scenario game that was produced by the field team “Port City Militia” which was the best game that I have attended to date. The field was excellent with good structures and layout. The refs were Port City Militia and was by far the fairest game I have attended. I played scenario games at Low Country Paintball, EMR, and Splat Brothers as well as played open play at Paintball Charleston, Big Pearl, Painted Forest, and Combat Zone Paintball Park. If you have the chance to catch the game that Port City Militia produces next year, I highly recommend it.
When I arrived I was warmly greeted by owner Kevin. Rental packages are tipp 98's and were well maintained. Goggles are hit-or-miss, I went through 3 before I found a set that wasn't too heavily scratched.
Clientele ranges from middle school boys through league players. Staff did a great job splitting up teams fairly. Good variety of field areas and bunkers. Games moved along well and there was plenty of action. Bases creatively constructed - abandoned trucks, large tire fields - not just pallets. Tippman town was my personal favorite - being 6'5 doesn't make crawling through the woods much fun.
My only negative was the access road. Easy to find, however after two days of rain it was a swamp. My FWD car had a heck of a time navigating it. Won't hold it against them, just be warned for the future!
Ok, i have played paintball along time now, goin on 13 years. I also am a head ref at Fox Piantball in va beach, va. and i play for Seek And Destroy. The most notable fields i have played at are EMR and paintball charleston. These are my favorite cause they play so well. Adventure beach PLAYS JUST LIKE THEM. This is an awesome well ran field. And as i said i am a ref and can recognize good reffing. ABP has outstanding refs that opperate with a sence of excellence and pride. This is a great field.

This field rocks! The city is great for CQB battles, their are lots of wooded areas to sneak around in, and an A/C'd pro shop. The staff is friendly and helpful. The pro shop has most of the essentials. I've been to 2 big games as a player and had a great time.
I would really recommend this field to anyone, we've had people come from as far away as TN, VA, DC, GA, FL, SC, WVA, and AL just to play here. That should tell you something.

Black River - The farm = Adventure beach is way better then this field, not even in the same league
Paintball Charleston - Adventure beach is next in line to this field
Directions to the Field:
its kind of hard to find, out in the middle of no where. Look for the blue pipes!
Start off by saying this field has come a long way. The refs and staff are so friendly. Dont be afraid to talk to them they are great people, very helpful. They don't have the best stocked proshop, but they are working on it and have the basics. Never had to wait long for CO2 of HPA. They are good about making people chrono, safety first. At all the big games I have been to they have provided great food, hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ! The field is the best part about this place though. They have a well built city thats great for some CQB combat, And a great woodsball field. They have a variety of different terrains, and forts. Very good field and they seem to be building all the time. Every experience I have had at this field has been good and getting better every time.

Right now the fields are a mess. I play for a team sponsored buy Adventure Beach so I know why they are the way they are so I am going to enlighten everybody on the situation.
The ownership of Adventure Beach got changed to Cecil Rodgers of Ground Zero Paintball and they haven't had a chance at getting everything together field wise and store wise. But with the completion of the NPPL and other major tournaments expect to see a lot of changes around Adventure Beach especially the fields.
Their is a slight smell on the field that comes from the water in the ground. The water has sulphur in it so.
Coastal paintball is a drive away, but it's the closest to this field i've been to.

Don't ask me! lol.
I took a jolly trip down to tabor city to play in the CBPL finals, and arrived to a dead field. The field's werent up, the chrony wasent out, and the place was a wreck. As soon as i got out of the truck, a wave of smelly-hot air washed over me.
This field is by FAR the WORST smelling field i have EVER played at. It literally smelled like raw sewage everywhere. It was the most vile smell. One guy on the Gotcha Boys 5man squad actually vomited one time as he was entering the field over one of the sludge pools. On top of that, the refs had no hand-held crony's. Velocity cheating was all over the place. I have a scar on my jawline to proove that. :pissed:
The refs themselves were nice guys tho. I will give them that. If you were nice to them, they were nice back. Pretty standard. And the staff in the proshop was nice also. Some of the girls helped get my bloody nasty jaw wound patched up :tup:
For this tournament, they had only one, count em, ONE field up, and it was a crappy x-ball field. This is a ACTS tourny, and now all of a sudden we're playing a run-down NXL field. Greaaaat. :grumpy:
The smell was my biggest gripe. If the envoirnment is not pleasant, then it's not a field for me. People wise, it was nice, but not the actual fields, which matter alot to me.
Sorry adventure. Yall are good folks, but your field is not.

This field was awesome, the city rocks and the woods end of it was set up nice. Cannot say enough good stuff. The owner was great with emails for getting our group ready to go. The staff was great, and the home team shadow group was on top of their game. We felt welcome right off the bat. Thanks again.
