Potential New Field in Crystal Lake, IL

Hi Guys,

A friend who is close to the city council was telling me that someone is trying to convince the city of Crystal Lake to allow an indoor paintball field in either the old Dominics or Wal-Mart buildings. The city is pushing back due to clean-up concerns and sustainability of the industry/business.

Does anyone have any other info?

Sorry this is light on the details, but as a native of CL I'd love to help in the process. If anyone knows more about it, let me know!

I did not know about this. But I think it would be cool to have another close field.

I live in Cary but haven't heard anything about this. Those types of buildings are awesome for the space but clean up is a big concern and the sustainability + lease + Utilities might be too brutal. Indoor paintball (in the US) typically caters to the tournament crowd and most tournament players expect things for cheaper than what the rest of the paintball community pay. With the right deal and backing, they might be able to pull it off but with PBX down the road, CPX's new indoor in Melrose Park, and Brew City just north of this, the competition is stiff.

CPX and PBX have a much larger target market apart from their indoor endeavors which helps with the overall sustainability of the indoor facilities.

The one I'm trying to figure out if it's still happening is Paintball City in Gurnee right off of Delany. I drove by the other night and saw a sign that said, "Coming Soon." Lord knows how long that has been up though.

I'll try to ask my friend for more info. I was just in the ninja offices (also in Crystal lake) but forgot to ask them if they heard anything about it. Ray knows everything.
