Each player receives admission, rental gear, a gun, and 50 paintballs. Zombie Safaris begin October 4 and run from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
During the Safari, players take to a half-mile interactive haunted trail to fight off an zombie invasion. Armed with Tippman Custom 98 paintball markers, players put their undead-slaying skills to the test across a quarter-mile of zombie-saturated landscapes. The zombie hordes lurch and lumber, but don't shoot back, so players needn't worry about dodging incoming paintballs.
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.
