ABC is an ok place if you're a beginner. It's fairly safe and the refs are strict with the chronos. There is a "surrender or die" rule that's pretty nice if the people if the players are decent enough to say it. If your getting lit up on the field the refs will let you out so don't endure being shot like crazy. The pro shop is a little slow and pretty nasty. It smells and it's dirty. The prices are great and the field paint is good and cheap. I still don't know if ABC is going to be field paint only or stay BYOP. I've heard mixed things on that subject. The speedball field is enormous and not actually speedball in my opinion but its cool. Its fairly sloped so they team on top can win easier. The woods field is awesome and huge. Theres a big selection of bunkers too. It's really muddy though and smells terrible. I was scraping mud off myself after my day there. I do like that the refs organize some scenario games like CTF and President. The picnic tables and that area are falling and the ground is littered with spilled paintballs. The walk up the hill to the woods is tough but hey, it keeps us in shape! I always heard bad stuff about ABC but its not that bad. Besides a few minor setbacks it's a good place and I'll come back. I give it a 7 only because of the mud and the proshop.
Ruckus Both very good staff at ruckus a little slow. Ruckus has 4 fields and ABC has 2 fields.Both great.With Ruckus paintball you can use your own paint.
This field is really good. The speedball field has plastic oil barrels and wood holding up white strong plastic. There is broken shells EVERYWHERE.I dont really like the speedballto much. The woodsball field is really cool. It has all kinds of barricades from tree logs to all kinds of things. The field is pretty big itself. The lady who works there can fix almost any problem with your gun and is VERY friendly. The refs are very helpful. When I played for the first time a ref stayed with me the whole time and helped me out alot. For the condition of the field,refs and staff I would give give them a 10 but since they are going to only use field paint ill give them a 8.

For a no-frills field, BYOP has been a blessing. Now they want to go FPO at $70/case.
- Convenient location (at a crossroads), not hidden away.
- 1 woods field and 1 speedball field, both rather large.
- Has been BYOP
- Friendly staff. Woman in shop is friendly, knowledgeable and can fix about anything.
- New crop of refs keep the time between games short.
- Yes, some areas have been a little wet, especially around the chrono range, but a recent delivery of woodchips is helping that.
- I have never smelled anything other than paintball paint at this field; no foul odors.
- Going FPO.
- Parking lot falling apart. Sometimes trouble finding parking (says something about it's popularity).
- No paper towels or air dryers in bathroom.
- Broken picnic benches.
- Field layouts over the past two years haven't changed.
- Hill to the woods is a killer, especially if you run out of air. You may miss a game going to the shop and back, so bring an extra tank.
- Safety netting around speedball field needs repair.
Abc, i have to say, is the best place to paintball for anyone. Beginners, in the middles, and experienced people all have fun there. I loved it since the first time i went there. The refs r great. Theyre really freindly and easy to get along with. Everything is pretty cheep there too. The speedball feild is good, even though its slanted. I dont kno much about the woods though kuz i only played there about three times. Im not a woodsball kinda guy. People say it "smells bad", but it really doesnt. Trust me, i go there every sunday. So anyways, if u live in upper nj and u havent been to abc, u should start.
OK there is alot of good things about this place such as byop(after july second it becomes fpo) there speedball course is huge and has awesome bunkers. And the woods course is probably a square mile.
Some of the bad things is the speedball is on a hill. The reffs are mean to newbs and make killer teams.( but thats how you get better). There are used paintballs everywhere... other than that this feeld rocks my sox
This has got to be my favorite field. I'm going their every week, if not every other week. A good thing about this place is they are VERY VERY VERY safe. They want ur googles on at all times (well not wen ur eating,drinking,cleaning ur gun etc.)
Great speedball course (well atleast i like it)
nice free day all nitro filling guy
little picnic area (buh ur coming to play paintball not to sit on ur butt
Pissed of owner (it seems every1 thinks that)

Ok this field is, how do I put this...quaint. It has a tiny proshop, though there main store is nice. But I'm irked because I lifted my goggle slightly in the dead zone to clean an internal mark (don't ask me how it got there :) ) and the ref said I couldn't play anymore, now I payed money and if I can't play anymore that's not fair, I signed there effin waiver why can't I just clena my gogles with my back turned!!?!?! THere my eyes it's my problem if it gets shot out! Not yours, so just play off please
Pros: Nice air filler people
Noobs and pros
mean refs who kic you out
sort of slow guy in the pro shop (i'm sure he'll get better with practice)
kind of small field
small picknick bench
dropped and broken paintballs everywere so you can't kneel down to tie your shoelaces ( there also in the picnic area and everywere)
This field is extremley safe. That has to be one of the best things about this place. They allways make you wear goggels where paint could be headed. If they catch you without wearing one you could have to sit out a few rounds or even leave if its your 2nd offense. Also they hound you about barrel plugs being at all times except when your playing (obviously). No one has ever been injured there relating to paintballs.Another great thing about here is the price. $15 bucks admission and you can bring your own paint. or buy paint from them which is at the average price. Its horrible to play when it rains or snows for three reasons. (1) when it snows the speedball field gets icy on some parts. I had 2 incedents with this. I was playing 1 on 1 and i was shooting at the other guy and i took a step back to get a better firing position and slipt and fell on my @#& then got gogged. Another time I was running off break to my bunker and slipt again and my pod cracked and there goes 144 balls and one pod. (2) No one really comes when its snowy- too cold and rainy- because too many people think they cant come when there is alittle drizzle. (3) The mud makes it smell like crap, your shoes get pulled off and if you drop your gun in the mud its a big hassel. Guys over there please do something about the ice in the winter that would be great. Another thing would to get new picnic benches there pretty crappy. All in All this is a teriffic field.

-Pissy about dry-firing

Knight Breed (good place to go if u want to go home with no eyes or angry)
Abc is an awsome place to play the first time i ever played there was in 4th grade and when i went home i was the happiest kid in the world the service was awsome all of the reffs were hailrious and ever since that day ive always gone back to abc I am also a reff now u might see the the review that says if u see the reff kevin shoot him well im that reff lol remeber u shoot me ill shoot u back j/k anyway when knight breed came into town i thought i would give it a try so i did and i left with in 2 hours i didnt find it funn when i got shot in the back in the dead zone while i was eating my lunch i dont think u would have either. if u want to go home safe and happy i recomend you go to abc.
Also abc is opeing up a new feild in chester new york this place is going to be huge there will be a variety of all kinds of feilds so if u want to have ur choice go to the new feild.
