if any of you locals can remember the old amusement park, Santas Village.. the rumors are true.

PB explosion, a store located in Skokie, has made arrangements to operate a paintball park inside the former amusement park located on Route 25, South of route 72.

the soft opening is expected to be in November, but will swing into full operation around March.

i will be making it out there within the next day or two to do an exclusive interview, which will hopefully get aired on PBlive (still waiting on LJ to get back to me on that)

General questions such as: Rates, FPO/BYOP, field type, what made them want to operate out of the facility, and what kind of events they would plan on having are some questions i will be asking..
if there is anything anyone wants to know, let me know!

Here is some data from a Sept press release...

Paintball Explosion

, one of Chicagoland’s premier paintball retailers located in Skokie, IL has plans to create the Midwest’s foremost paintball complex consisting of five oversized fields set amongst woods, ravines and structures on eight acres of land at the south side of the Santa’s Village property. The realistic settings will be based on many of today’s most popular video games and will include recreations of a U.S. military base, an amusement park, and scenery from a major Hollywood motion picture recently filmed in Chicago. In addition, a state-of-the-art, tournament-style air-ball field will be available for advanced players & teams. Paintball Explosion will also offer a wide array of paintball equipment and accessories for sale, making it Chicagoland’s best one-stop shop for both beginner and advanced paintball enthusiasts. Scheduled to open Spring 2011. For more information on Paintball Explosion, please call Romeo Kapudija at 312-296-2966.

Santa’s Village is located at 601 Dundee Road in East Dundee, Illinois. From Chicago, take the IL-25 exit off I-90. Follow IL-25 North for approximately 1-1/2 miles. The entrance is marked by the large vintage Santa’s Village sign.

Looks like they are really investing in this place. Hopefully places like this put us more on the paintball map.

Hey Thumper, and D monster: A few of us midwestern Tiberius owners have been talking about a game. I posted a link to your youtube PBExxplosion vids and there has been some interest in the new park. No times are set, but it's looking like maybe February-ish. Come on over and let us know. I go by Probie on the Tiberius forums.
