2016 Illinois Zombie Paintball Locations!
Zombie paintball is appearing at more and more corn mazes, pumpkin patches and other Fall farm venues in Illinois. Following on the popularity of anything having to do with zombies (remember how the Canadian government even had a zombie apocalypse preparedness day?) many Halloween attractions, particularly those on farms, are having a new event called "zombie paintball".
The concept is pretty simple: typically, patrons pay a fee to be given a loaded paintball gun which is mounted on either a haywagon (which drives through the zombie field) or on a ledge (like at a shooting range) and they fire away at zombies (actors dressed to look like zombies, whose clothes and masks protect them from injury).
How to find a zombie paint ball venue?
We are continually updating and adding to our list of zombie paintball locations, farms and corn mazes that offer zombie paintball hayrides, zombie paintball trails, zombie lasertag, and indoor facilities, which is growing every day, right here, alphabetically, by county. If you know of any I've missed, please tell me about them - Click here to write to me! To see the zombie locations in this area, Just scroll down the page:

A visitor writes on August 11, 2014: "Siegel's Cottonwood farm has become a family tradition. We love to go to the farm, see the animals, have a smoked turkey leg, root beer and fresh apple pie. We have been going for 15 years now. Location is great. Parking is free and lots of parking. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We enjoy their produce and the gift store treasures. Our only complaint...it is not open 12 months of the year...but everyone needs downtime. "
A visitor writes on August 21, 2012: "This place us Awesome! I brought my Grand kids here last year and they had a blast all day. I love how they have an actually pumpkin field were the kids can learn where pumpkins are actually grown and pick them themselves. They also have so many attractions included in the admission which is great. I hate going somewhere having to pay admission but then have to pay for just about everything else that there. This is our new place to go every year in the fall. "
A visitor writes on September 26, 2010: "I visited Siegel's Cottonwood Farm for the first and only time in Fall 2009. I called first to ask about the corn maze. According to the website and a person on the phone they were open until 6:00. We got there at about 4:00 figuring that 2 hours should be plenty of time. After only 30 minutes in the maze an employ came in and asked us to leave as the maze closes an hour before the rest of the farm. The website should have said that...the woman on the phone could have told us...the woman who sold us the tickets should have told us...and the employee who let us into the maze definitely should have told us! One trip to the manager later, we were allowed back into the maze for another 20 minutes. We will go to a different maze from now on."
