Other Fields
in the Area:
I've played at:
Pentagon Paintball in Fairview, great field - more speedball oriented
Hole in the wall in bangor, Michigan, - similar to Three rivers, lots of woods courses.

Playing Games in the woods and golf courses(alot of fun)
Directions
to the Field:
Not quite too sure, went up with Edinboro University's CORE, it was basically put on by our SGA, they paid for most of our trip. I'm sure you can mapquest it with the address given on the website or another review.

Directions: if you live in the cranberry/mars area, you probably know how to get there.
Review: Field opened around noon on saturday, got geared up, gassed up, got the paint.

It was an open play day, there was a birthday party for this dude that was on our team.
and a bachelor party, and a few walk in's not including our group of like 9 or 10 guys.

Before the games even started the refs addressed the main groups of people that were there at the time about general safety(barrel condoms when getting off the field, and wearing your mask when on the field, and at the chrono range, etc..)

Then the games began, there were two main teams all day, red-vs-blue. there was a game of capture the flag on one of the woods courses, which turned into elimination, but we had to end up hanging the flag anyway when the opposing blue team was dead.

then we played for about 5 hours on the various woods courses, which had tanks, castles, a fort, vans, jeeps, boats and alot of other things. which made for interesting games.

The quality of the field was nice, field upkeep was very good as well.

Price for paint was 80$ a case for 2k rounds.. which is a bit steeper than other fields I've been to, and they only had one kind of paint as well.

Their rental guns are BT-4's

I was not able to stop in their pro-shop before i left, so i'm not too sure on the prices, or selection they have, but i could tell it wasnt as expansive as pentagons shop.

The refs were fair, and stressed safety to a few players at a few points during the day(somebody took their mask off during a game and in the middle of a fire fight at that, and one was shooting his gun by a pavilion without a mask and not inside the chrono range.)

im not sure i would go back anytime soon, unless i had alot of money. Also the field was just about 2 hours away from the campus. so distance is an issue as well.

I recommend this field to anyone if you are willing to drop alot of money for a day of paintball.

This field gets an 8 because of their price on paint. Other than that, i had a great day of paintball!

Review: I have to start by saying I love this field. This field is one of the best around.

Safely is a big thing here, they make sure everyone is playing safe.

They have six woods ball field and three air ball fields but most of the time only one or two will be up. The woods ball field are great every field has differant bunkers and a differant feel to them. Like creek bed is a more open field but the field right next to it is thick brush and tall grass. One field has a fort on it. It is a good sized fort but it is so much fun to take the fort is gets really intense. The hours are good, they have open games on saturday and sunday form 12 to 5.

The pricing is alittle high ( $80 a case), but I have a membership so every time I play there I only pay $30. The rule are just the basic rules for "Woods Ball" or "Capture the Flag".

I really do not but anything from the drop shop, I buy my paintball stuff from punishers paintball ( great place have everything u need and low prices). I have looked around the pro shop and the have anything u probly would need but the prices are just a little high.

The staff is great and the refs do a great job of making sure not alot of cheating ( everyone who plays paintball wips some hits). In the break between the games the refs are always taking to the players and telling story. The players there are the most easy going players you will ever play with. No one ever gets made after the games when they get out and when you are in the break between games it is such a chilled atmosphere. The players are always a mix of great players and first times so there is always some good comption.

They only time only time I have had food there was it a scenario game. They cooked hot dogs and hamburger, I have a hamburger it was ok. You can also order food from a pizza place close by.

So if you and your friends want to just have a good fun game of paintball there is no place better then Three Rivers Paintball.

Review: I went here multiple times in the past few years and only liked it the first time back in 06'.

Prices: Good a few years ago but honestly you're better off going to Urban Assualt rental, paint, and play-fee wise.

Rules: Had some wierd rules for woodsball. Either that or the referee was improvising rules. In one area they use giant wooden spools used for coiling up obscene amounts of rope I assume. If anyone has ever seen one they you know they have a 1 foot hole in the center. For some reason other players were allowed to shoot out of the holes were the spools met like this, with them being the perioid and the /'s being the spools.( /.\ ). But for some reason when I tried shooting through the huge hole in the spool while the other team was shooting at my feet through the holes on the ground, I GOT penalized.

Ref's- The one ref I mentioned above no longer works there but for some reason every referee they hire has the attitude of the owner's son or something. Always making off-handed comments at players and generaly acting like an asshat.

Proshop- More of a shack to sign you're waiver and pay them for play fee and get CO2. I havent been there in 3 months but last time I went they were missing some basics like the rarer O rings and even shwag for presents ect ect.

Staff- Besides the one ref theres usualy some stoner in the shack to fill you're tank.

Players- Best aspect of the place. Referee cut my velocity spring down to 180 bps because he thought he "Knew" my gun. Thought I was going to have to rent a marker but then some random player walks over with 2 free springs. Also you probably won't find more relaxed woodsballers(Not taking the game too serious.) But at the same time they will willingly work with walk-ins and other groups inside the team.

Facilities- Gravel parking lot, cubical like "Pro Shop", 3-4 woods ball areas, and a speedball course thats almost always deflated. I went in april 07' and they were still saying 65-75 was too cold for the bunkers.

Review: I have played at this field off and on for about 3 years now. I participated in many of their open play, scenario, and tournament events and I have to say TRP has definitely gone down the hole. About 3 years ago they were putting out better prepared and more frequent tournaments and scenarios. Now they have no tournaments and poor events. Their prices have also gone up to extreme rates. It costs about $120 with paint, entry, and air just to play for a few hours of open play during a weekend. They only have one ref moving and controlling open play games that can consist of over 25 people, which is way understaffed. Not to mention the turn around rate for games is extremely slow. You end up sitting around waiting about 4x longer than you do playing the games.

On the plus side they do have decent woodsball fields, which are fun and well maintained. They also usually have a good number of players showing up during the weekends which makes some fun games. However, these advantages certainly do not outweigh the reffing, turnaround times, price, and event problems. This field deserves a 4/10, but with simple improvements such as better staffing, reffing, and cheaper prices, they could go up as many as 3-4 more points in my book.

Review: This field overall was great. The Fields were very well set up, the refs were very professional and fair, but the only problem I had was the paint Prices. I understand that it costs alot to build a paintball park, and that the field bunker sets are expensive, but the owners should be building the field for the love of paintball, not to make a good profit. I know that almost all fields make you use FOP, but if TR had a BYOP day, or at least had a day where they cut the price in half, they would have so much for business. But, still great field.. just a little too pricy.

Review: I didn't like here because the ref was rushing the games and making fun of people. The ref was being mean to me cause maybe i was the only girl. There was only one ref on the field there and it looked like he didn't want to be there at all and there were about 20 of us on the field....he didn't care to much. At Paintball Extreme there is aleast 3 to 4 refs on the fields and that it looks like they want to be there! One time I went to Paintball Extreme and one of the refs was sick and he didn't call off because and wanted to go ref!!! Three Rivers is not like that...the refs are boring....they don't talk to you....they got attitude problems.This place is really pricey, they should lower some of they're prices!! And the fields were smashed together and stuff. I didn't like this place at all!!! They should change some stuff.

Review: I must say, this field is excellent! The first time I went there, the first thing I immediately noticed was the excellent environment. Unlike some other fields, its a good environment, with many people who are there for the same reason, to enjoy paintball.

One thing that I find is very important, is that they have good rules, and they ENFORCE them. I cannot emphasize how awesome that is. At Urban Assault, I noticed that there is only one referee, and he basically just chills there. There are guys ramping 23+ bps, and people are getting bonus balled like crazy, and the 15 ft rule is violated. BUT, at Three Rivers, there are multiple refs out on the field, enforcing every rule. There is the "no ramping" rule at Three Rivers. It really keeps the games from getting out of hand. And yes, they enforce it. I had my Ion, the first time I went, and I turned it on ramping 20 bps for one game, just to "show off", and they caught me within 15 seconds. I got a warning, and was called out, and if I was caught ramping again, I would be kicked out of the field for the rest of the day.

Three Rivers has I think 9-10 woods fields, which are all very fun to play at, excluding the tire field. The tire field is vietnam style, and nobody moves.... so its just sitting there. But all of the other fields have helicopters, houses, bridges, tanks, vans, and more. They are all fun fields to play on. There is also a hyperball field, which is nicely setup.

Overall, this field is excellent.

Review: Great !!! refs are fair field is nice, the large scenario games play through nicely with few problems. i loved how the proshop advised the players on what gear would work better in the wet weather ( Resident Evil GD). but the employees were nice and friendly to all players. I am a woodsball, Scenario, and new speedball player, and threerivers takes care of all the players from all walks of the sport.

Review: We visited this field on Customer Appreciation Day, with free admission and food. This was the weekend immediately after the Halo scenario, so some of the props were still around. Taken in whole, the field is amazing, however, they had it chopped up into several very short, narrow fields, which boiled it down to a day of speedball in the woods. If you were using the whole field, it would be a lot of fun; as it played this day, it wasn't really my cup of tea. Safety was very well controlled, in fact, the best I've seen. Service on air and paint was good, but the pro shop was slow. The paint in use was as good as any field paint I've used, but it was $80 a case which is a little pricey compared to what I pay at Battlefront. Overall the field has great potential, it just wasn't used the day I was there.
