Badlandz Alright, I may have only been there a few times a few years ago, but the time I did go I had terrible experience. If you're there for team practice it's hard to get games in because of Aftershock...

Alright, I may have only been there a few times a few years ago, but the time I did go I had terrible experience. If you're there for team practice it's hard to get games in because of Aftershock hogging up the fields. This review is based solely on those experiences, but I am willing to try it out again.

Pros: woods ball fields, bring your own paint option
Cons: They don't care about you
Let me just start off by saying that not every field is perfect, and this isn't the exception. This field is really great because you can bring your own paint, the woods ball fields are cool, and they refs are nice. Now when I went there I kinda got the feeling like they don't care at all about the customers, only the professional team that practices there, Aftershock. This was a bit annoying to me. Also they make you cap your bps at 10.5 which is alright sometimes, but when you are playing hyper ball with a bunch of experienced players, you should be able to go to the full 12.5 ramping or uncapped semi imo. Decent place besides the fact that they don't really care about you that much.

Cons: New refs not trained well
In my opinion it's got a little bit of everything, the design of the airball fields change weekly which is nice, and the woodsball fields have natural and un-natural bunkers all over the place. The fields are very playable. The employees for not being trained do as best as they can to split up the beginners, intermediate, and advanced. Other than the refs being "GREEN" the Badlandz is one of my top choices.

Bandlandz is a great place to paintball and they have great fields but they only have one speed ball field and every time I go its oh it's team practice or its just not up although I love the snake and zipper fields it's just not the same they definitely need to get another set of bunkers so everyone can experience speedball

Most of there refs are great they are fare and easy to talk to and there very safe and aware about barrel condoms and masks but some of the refs are new to the sport and that's just crazy who hires someone that is scared to get in the way of a few balls? I know I wouldn't

The best think about this place is the price $25 for entry and air if you bring your own paint I love it just don't bring white fill or cheep Walmart paint it doesn't feel good and it's not as Eco friendly as they say do a kool add test to prove it

Thanks for reading guys
P.S. I recommend you go to this place it's my choice over any place in the area

During the summer of 2011, I was Mr. Badlandz. I played every Friday in the recreational games for fun and to shoot up my friends and then had team practice on Sunday. I spent thousands of dollars at Mr.Rennick Miller's field and i have not one bad thing to say about it. The ref staff is amazing and always looking to help kids out with gun issues and more experienced players such as myself are always around to help out as well. I spent countless time working for free and helping out from picking up garbage to reffing games. I love this field, its my home away from home and i highly encourage every paintball player to try it out. Its super easy to get too, and once you pull up the gravel road, you're in another world and your outside life dosent matter because your entire focus is shooting that guy out on one of the many Hyperball fields on the property, or chasing and elusive deer through the woods(oh wait that only happened once, but me and Jim swear it attacked us first)
This place is really amazing and the people there are great to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with. I took my fiance there and she loved it. Seriously, i cannot tell you how really amazing this place is, so go check it out for yourself.

Probably one of the best speedball places for anyone in the chicago area! its bring your own paint, staging area is wherever you park your car which could be right by the field, and they have more than one speedball field. the only bad part was some of the refs were pretty bogus to new players. i caught a new (Ref in training) swearing at the top of his lungs not even at a player to put his goggles down, but to stop shooting him or something along those lines. i understand it's a little thing, but with some pretty young rrookie players, you dont really want a ref of all people to be cussing at them. other than that little gripe, this place is top notch!
