Went over a bachelor party weekend. Was surprised to see it connected to an amusement park. Was a little sticker shocked with paint prices but $15 for entry with your own gear wasn't bad. Field choices were some of the best I have ever seen. (didn't get to play Nuke Town, too icy ) Played 2 games on the woodsball fields than switched to airball inside. Games rotated quickly and there was a great balance of beginner player games to more advanced players.

I guess its not necessarily localized to this PBExplosion but it seemed like some of the regulars (speedball types) thought there **** smelled like roses. Not really blaming the field for that.

Overall a great place, if you are in the Chicagoland area go check this place out!

Pros: big feilds great design nuketown fun
Cons: have to use their paint
first off paintball explosion is my favorite park by far. Their customer service is great and all the staff members are really nice. The fields are amazing the have a replica field of nuketown from the game call of duty and its really great. They also have many other fields including indoor speedball. One thing that I don't like is that you have to use their paint, it is high quality biodegradable valken paint but I think you should have the option of bring your own paint and most of the paints on the market are biodegradable these days. Over all I would highly recommend taking a trip to paintball explosion.

Lets just start off with Nuketown! It was hands down total greatness playing on one of my favorite maps from Call of Duty.

The staff was great. communication was there especially when a play was hit or called themselves out the ref was letting us know the player was out.

I will be going back for sure.

Pros: A lot of themed fields. Indoor/outdoor speedball
Cons: Field paint only.
Ive been to paintball explosion once and i can say i am definitely going back again and again. Their outdoor themed fields (8 of them) are alright of you like woodsball/"town"ball. Ive only played 2 games on the outdoor fields and i realize i would much rather be playing speedball. They have 2 speedball fields, one inside and one outside. Not very many people who are inside playing speedball so you can play as many games as you want and however you want to play them, 1v1, 2v2, 4v2, and the list goes on. The rental equiptment is in okay condition, the markers are in better condition than the masks. The staff and refs are very friendly and give you tips if you want them. Overall PE is a great place to go paintballing.

I love this place. Everytime i go i end up staying all day having tons of fun. But there is a downside, it hurts my wallet bad. It is very pricey compaired to fox paintball that is closer to me and is BYOP. If they would bring the prices down a little i would go more but as of now i just go there for the big games or if my friends wanna go.
