Badlandz Reviews
Badlandz I started going to this field when it was almost brand new. It's responsible for most of my "favorite days of paintball" ever.

I am currently a ref at Badlandz, but before I have played there multiple times. The staff is extremely helpful, and knowledgeable. They have a very good variety of fields, any kind of paint you need. They have woodsball, hyperball, airball, airsoft. Everything you could need, plenty of room to roam, maps are set up with good boundaries, also the maps have a lot of nice bunkers etc.

Love this field. It has a ton of history and every field has had a lot of time put into it. The BYOP option is getting very rare in this day and age so its great to see places still doing so. This is also a great place for Rec players or pro's alike with a diverse range of experience there. If you get a change def. head out there for a great time.

Cons: limited airball
I've been playing on and off for years now thanks to the economy but Ive always preferred to play at the badlandz. I enjoy the atmosphere and love the pricing. I wish airball was more readily available but with fields like zipper and snake it all works out. I never beem a huge woodsballer but it always makes for a nice change of pace. I will say though..bring back the window! I was slightly saddened to play window 1 and no longer see the window. If you're in the area and like to play..doesn't matter your skill level go check out the badlandz.

Badlandz This is the place to go in the Chicagoland region. Always BYOP and cheap entry. Has the most authentic paintball feel. Not flashy at all but if you came to paintball you will leave happy.

Notice when I would play there for an open play, markers were rarely checked. Some of the refs seemed they were there for the paycheck instead of the game, which sucks. I would not recommend this field to anyone just starting off because one , no one i know wants to drive an hour, and 2 the experince would suck for them.

Big games are ok to play in, but the rules can be very confuzing if you are not paying attention.
