Paintball Explosion began when a group of paintball fanatics decided to make their dreams a reality and set about designing eight different fields of movie-set quality. Located just a 40-minute drive outside of Chicago, the real-life fantasy land they created includes the sci-fi-inspired, concrete environs of Code Black Field as well as the abandoned amusement-park setting of Biohazard Field.

The expansive facility also sports indoor and outdoor speedball fields for adrenaline-fueled fastness. Between matches, gamers can prepare at heated buildings with locker rooms and showers. With an onsite sports bar and grill, Paintball Explosion makes the paintball haven a place where enthusiasts can discuss the forces of velocity, wind resistance, and the physics of splatter.

At Brew City Paintball, paint slingers of all skill levels wage war over 44,000 square feet of indoor battlegrounds or 17,000 sq. ft. outdoor field peppered with inflatable fortifications. The indoor facility includes two fields, with one stretching 110'x130' and another 85'x125'. During paintball games, each player loads up with a Tippmann A5 Response Trigger full auto gun, protective vest, antifog mask, and unlimited air refills to take the fight to enemy teams and spotless clothing on multiple all-turf playing fields. Referees monitor each match for signs of foul play, and Brew City organizes games according to player skill so rookies can hone their skills without being sniped by a pro. As paint flies between bunkers and teams vie for control of the field, parents, friends, and war photographers observe the action from plush leather couches in Brew City's air-conditioned viewing room, complete with WiFi and five flat-screen TVs.

A family walks down a lane cut into a sprawling field of corn, striding confidently until they reach a fork. After a debate, they turn left, and eventually left again. A wooden bridge leapfrogs them to a new path, lined with rows of eerily similar corn stalks. Luckily, it's a balmy day, the blue sky striated with wispy clouds, and they're not in a hurry to emerge from the green ocean of corn.

From an observation deck nearby, the 28-acre cornfield looks like a postage stamp inside the 450-acre farm, which grows soybeans, corn, and more than 50,000 Christmas trees. Homesteaded in 1840, the land is now owned and worked by a third generation of Richardsons. The family wanted to welcome visitors to the farm to enjoy the rural, outdoorsy fun that could only fit on such a sprawling space. They planted the corn maze?among the world's largest?and devised other attractions such as a zipline and paintball gallery. Visitors can also cheer on racing pigs, pet animals in an interactive zoo, and participate in different maze games. In autumn families come to pick pumpkins and in winter they cut their own Christmas trees.
