Paintball Explosion is a great place to go to. They have a large variety of field available for both woodsball and speedball players. The refs do a good job splitting groups to ensure games are fun and competitive at the same time. Ownership is always present at the field which shows customers that they care not only about the sport or their business, but also about customers.

The indoor speedball field is amazingly fun! they offer a special at times where you pay only 65 dollars for a case and entry but you can only play on the speedball course(which is fine for most advanced players). The outdoors field are remarkably beautiful and artistic. The use of an amusement park to play on was a first ive ever seen!

Pros: Nice indoor field, great refs
Cons: Turnaround time

Referees: Though people generally call themselves out, the refs are not afraid to run in for a closer look.
Price: PBX has the cheapest indoor practice price in the Chicagoland area. It's $55 for entry and a case of paint.
Field: The indoor field is quite nice. The bunkers are all properly inflated, and the staff keeps them relatively clean throughout the day.


Paint: The field doesn't use one particular brand of paint, meaning people are shooting different brands on the same day. This was a minor issue, as my team's community paint system didn't allow me to have a good paint-to-bore match. Some of the brands shoot better than others, so it is really just luck of the draw.
Field: Yes, I already listed this as a plus, but I did have some issues with it. The field is drenched in paint. I slid into a bunker and basically ended up in a sticky puddle of white goo. The problem is particularly bad at the back bunkers and behind the start box.
