Ive played here for 4 years. Black River had some great hyperball and speedball going about 2 years ago maybe less but now all the bunkers have holes in them and sometimes they cram 20 people on a 3 man course. other than speedball its a great field with pretty good competition. most of the time you got about 10 or so guys with axes or egos etc that know what theyre doing but theyre fields are great. my favorites are fort and ghost town and they other woodsball fields are great. The refs are pretty good. Jacob gets an attitude with some of the players. Fun to watch but not a good ref. i think prices are alright if you bring coupons. You can get free rental admission on empires website if you search free rookie pass

I personally enjoy this field, big variations in the skill of players. Always about 15-30 people using rentals when I go. Maybe 5-15 using their own guns. Most fields are good except their speed ball field. Bunkers are always half inflated. Great for a skill levels. I prefer this over Xtreme Kombat or Gotcha. Check their website for their promotional days, saves lots of money.

This is a great field if your looking for walk on play, rec, or speedball. I have never been disapointed or not had a good time... The field is a buisness that promotes fun, fair, and safe play. Three great qualities of paintball.

customer service leaves much to be desired. It seems to me the company puts making profit a top priority, and player satisfaction second. I have gone to the field, played one game and my marker jammed up on me. Instead of giving me a refund for the day, and only charging me for paint, they pretty much told me to deal with it. This 20 dollar fee is the main reason why I have not returned to the field. The staff is real hit or miss. Sometimes they are great, friendly, helpfull, and organized. Other times, I have gone to the field and pretty much started the games myself using the refs as extras.

The fields are great though there is no mistaking that. And there usually is a large enough crowd that you can play any game you want. There is diversity among the players, and usually the ref will divy up the players to make it a fair game.

The paint seems reasonable to me, and you have a large variety to choose from as well which is helpfull as well. The rental equipment I've seen is usually in clean working order and that is important new players.

I recommend this field to start at. But always be ready to look at other fields to play. Each field has something different to offer.

This field is amazing. everyone here is very fun and nice. the reffs are great, and they know how to call the game. i have no idea what the greg guy was talking about, because all of the current reffs are great at what they do, and even though they have some lean on the rules, they are not as bad as he said they were. they dont punch cards for every little thing (like dry firing in the parking lot and other minor stuff) but they do for the major stuff (wiping hits, bonus balling people alot after they have called themselfs out, not giving someone a chance to surrender at point blank range) But this field is amazing. i will admit that the prices are slightly higher than what they should be for the quality paint that they have, but it isnt outrageous. the fields have something moved around each weekend, and everytime i go there something new is there at the field. it is an amazing field. come play at black river soon.

The fill station is a bit small and crowds up at times.

Black River Paintball It's a very nice field with quality speedball bunkers, it also has a hyper ball area. It seems to have a nice crowd there who play fair and love the sport of paintball.

So I went the Fayetteville field first and the manager offered a suggestion to play at the Raleigh area field. Good call, Total players at the heart of the day was around 50+. Above the is a link to a Facebook album of today.

The building, fields, and pro shop all top notch. While I played with my own gear I noticed almost no malfunctions of the rental guns. So this goes contrary to my CON note about dimpled paint, it was not a problem through my gun either but I did make note of it when I opened the case. Talking to the manager at the end of the day he noted their system of marker maintenance.

Nice variety of fields that maintained a good flow of event. They are also have a home tourney team and a good field for them.

Overall, great enjoyment.
