I have played at this field dozens of times because of my proximity to it. I only wish it were closer to a larger population so more people would be able to experience how a field should be run.

The staff is always helpful and friendly. The prices for paint are fair and you get a choice as opposed to other fields that only have one "choice." Or you can bring your own paint.

They offer a wide variety of fields from woods, to hyperball, to pro tournament setups that allow for all skill levels.

I have not played in a few summers but plan on visiting them again very soon.

Pros: BYOP and Friendly Atmosphere
Cons: Refing can be lax and field can be VERY muddy
I've been coming to Fox since 04 and it's become my field of choice. The reffing sometimes isn't the greatest, the fields are not as good as some of the places around town such as CPX, and the fields here can get REALLY muddy(I've almost lost a shoe to a sinkhole here once!) But with all that said the friendly environment here is unbeatable. It just feels like the player base that comes to fox is overall friendly than at many of the fields around Chicago. Also the 1 day scenario games at fox are simply too awesome to miss! If you haven't come to the Halloween scenario game I HIGHLY suggest it.

Tailgating is one of the best parts about fox too! I can come, set up a canopy and some chairs, get my grill going, and then play some games and not worry about anything getting screwed with or stolen.

The people are friendly and willing to help with anything. The senarios are always well thought out and fun. They also have many give aways at these senarios. Overall, great field to play at

Its rather hit and miss with fox, when its dry its a great field and lots of fun. Great refs, staff, and paint. The facilities could use a refresh, to show there has been some care to them since they were put up. But if it rains the week before look out. The river either floods or they have huge puddles and mud everywhere. For the facilities I would say it can be a little pricey, because you can go to other fields for a better value.

Pros: BYOP, many fields, woods and tourney
Cons: doesn't recover quickly from rain
Quick disclosure, my team is sponsored by Fox. That isn't an accident, but keep it in mind when you read my review. I will be honest, though.

Fox Paintball in Millington, IL is a huge paintball field with (I think) 17 woodsball and tourney fields, both airball and hyperpipe. Air fills are 4500/3000 all day, with 6 4500 fill stations and 3 3000 fill stations. Rentals are Tippmann A5 and AGD Automags. You can bring your own paint or buy paint from the on-site proshop. They also stock many other paintball gear incase anything breaks or you want to upgrade while you are there. The refs are well trained and work hard, and open game turnaround is quick, usually only about 10-15 minutes.

Ray, the field manager, puts a lot of effort into improving the field constantly. Fox's sponsored teams volunteer hours to the field every spring to clean it up and fix or build bunkers, which helps clean the place up after the winter carnage. Most areas of the field have tall trees with high branches coupled with tall grass and undergrowth, so you can shoot far but still be sneaky-sneaky. Some parts have more dense trees, others have no grass, so you get a good mix of cover.

However, as I said I was going to be honest, there are some warts. Because it is on a flood plain of hte Fox River, they are limited in some of the facilities they are allowed to have, such as indoor flushing toilets. You;ll have to deal with porta-potties. They also cannot serve hot food to the public. They do have lots of food like chips and pop and candy bars, but no more hotdogs or burgers.

And finally, as has been mentioned, it takes a while for the fields to dry after a heavy rain or spring thaw. During the summer, it can take a day or two for the fields to completely dry, and some low areas can have puddles for longer. Generally the water is easy to avoid, but once in a while you will get wet.

Pros: Refs and Safety
Cons: Speedball Fields
I go to this field about once or twice a month. Its a great field with outstanding refs and safety is always a priority. There woodsball fields are great but there speedball fields are lacking. Most of the time 2 of the 4 speedball fields are down because there under water. The airball field is almost always under team practice so you barely get to use it. While the last one is a great, its been down for repair the last 2 or 3 times ive gone. But other then that, i love how the parking lot is right in the middle of all the action. They have a lot of options for paint from 35 to 65 dollar paint. Overall its a great field to spend a day to have some fun.

Pros: Economical, BYOP, Great Staff & Reffs, & Ray
Cons: Gets muddy, & has no indoor plumming
First let me start by saying that Fox is my home field. But not just because it is 30-40 minutes from my house but because it is the most ECONOMICAL field I have ever had the pleasure of playing at. Its biggest attributing reason being its BRING YOU OWN PAINT policy. Another reason would be its low cost admission fee of $30 for non-members and $15 for members. In addition, they have a very knowledgeable STAFF and great REFFS to manage speedball/woodsball games (I personally know a lot of the refs and they’re really great guys). Another thing worth mentioning is Fox’s field variety, it has something like 4 speedball fields, 1 hybrid field, and probably over 8 woodsball fields, and they’re always doing something new every year. And if they are any problems, Fox’s field manager RAY (PYROMAN) is a really easygoing guy and would probably help/work with you in anyway possible....
