More than 15 themed courts at CPX Sports play host to fearless teams of Chicagoland paintballers, and a macabre Halloween makeover results in zombie-ridden death fields and chilling haunted forests. After arriving at CPX and signing a waiver, hunters of the undead will trek through a pitch-black forest, staying alert for ghoulish apparitions or squirrels donning tiny bed sheets cut with ghostly holes. Once they've traversed haunted paintball fields that include The Jungle of Doom, Armageddon, and The Town of Bedlam, ghostbusting temps will receive goggles, a paintball gun, and 200 paintballs in time to board the tram of terror. On the hair-raising ride, they’ll use their paintball skills to decimate relentless undead hordes, taking advantage of the fact that paintballs are the best lethal weapon against the living dead, other than traitor zombies craving the brain jerky of their kinsmen.

CPX Sports

A hailstorm of paint projectiles rains down upon CPX Sports' more than one dozen fields, each of which poses different challenges and requires specialized tactics. The crown jewel of the park is the Town of Bedlam, a massive maze of small-town 1950s buildings that jut out between streets dotted by paint-splattered cars and streetlights. There, snipers poke their heads out of the central city hall's tower as the opposing team hides out or checks for abandoned shampoo samples inside the post office. The Jungle of Doom drops teams into a heavily wooded field to vie for control of a central temple, and chromatic combatants weave between desiccated cars in the Wastelands, attempting to collect the most gas cans. A full pro shop outfits players with markers, protective gear, and Sesame Street coloring books for target practice.

In the newly-built indoor paintball facility, meanwhile, combatants can compete on an over 35,000 square-foot field no matter how bad the weather outside is. The location also features private rooms for birthday parties, or corporate outings for effective team-building exercises that don’t involve gluing the marketing staff to people in sales.
