I would recommend bringing your gear... There are tons of paintball fields in the area, including Fox Paintball, Patriot Paintball, Friendly Fire, etc... but most are just that paintball fields...
If you are looking for something different, I would consider playing at Challenge Park Extreme or Badlandz..
Challenge Park is the disneyland of paintball, and is very different then most paintball fields.. with a fully designed town and several other fields... take a look at www.challenegpark.com
Badlandz is the home of the NPPL Chicago Open, so it has some cool fields like their three 10man hyperball fields, including the new "Zipper" field. If you go to badlandz, I would recommend going on a Saturday as all the teams will be practicing on Sunday, and the open game does not get to play hyperball when teams are practicing... you can check them out at www.buyshocktech.com
Hope this helps...
