All in all i thought this was and excellent field, the nest I've been to so far.. Nicely set up fields good paint good employees unlike combat cave where the guys that worked there gave me and my friend dirty looks through out the day when we first went.. but any way the field as cool..needs a bigger staging area cuz the last time i went i had to use the table where the xbox's were at to set up...only thing that pissed me off about this field was that when i left one of my markers to get repaired they didnt even touch it. When i came back like 3 months later to pick it up everything was exactly as it was when i dropped it off..

Directions to the Field:
Lake Geneva behind the Showboat Movie Theater
I've been playing paintball for over 15 years now and it's good to see a field that is run on the values that old fields were run on which is respect for the player. Chad runs a great shop and an excellent field. Reffing is top notch and there is a lot of emphasis on safety and promoting a family environment. Currently there are 2 fields (1 2k7 X-Ball field and 1 rec field with assorted bunkers) and a 3rd to be added soon. All fields are outdoor which does make them susceptible to weather conditions, but you can't choose what weather you play in at tournaments, so why would you want to at a practice.
Anyway I'd highly recommend this field to anyway looking to come out and practice against a solid X-ball team on team practice days, or for the first time player who wants a good safe introduction to the sport we all love to play and see grow.
Come on out and have some fun ballin it up!

I've played on factory, Black Rain and paintball Blitz
Strengths: Extremely good costumer service
Nice Fields, with strict rules
Two different types of field with multiple options for game play.
Nice grass for sliding and good bunkers for angles and laning.
Shop inside for any products needed, or buy completely new gear.
Weaknesses: Outside fields are extremely suceptible to weather conditions.
prices are Kinda high for air, and the paint isn't very good, and its not overly exspensive, but not worth it.
9 out of 10....highly recommend playing there for a great paintball experience. well worth the money and time.
Staff there is great
Siege, stinger, Apoc, BFG, Factory paintball, Stalker & the edge
Directions to the Field:
the field is right behind the showboat movie theatre off of highway 120.
The field was amazing, the grass was thick so you could run and yet it was soft when you dove. the field was layout out almost perfectly and the staff is awesome. the hours are 10am until i guess dark. it was like $15 for admission and $55 for paint. they had an awesome proshop there as well. and they were very strick about rules too.
while not actually a field as of yet this proshop/store rocks.
I say that one reason alone;
1.Quality of service......
Most paintball stores/fields are run by quality honest people, some are not...this store falls into the first category. Work is done to the best of available ability and in a timely fashion. Overall the store is a friendly honest place where you can stop in to chat about paintball, check out the new gear and all together get a good deal, plus who else hosts greg hastings paintball tournaments?
The hours of operation allow even people with the busiest of schedules to find time to stop in and get the supplies that they need. Store is run by players for players, and sells to a multitude of experience levels - from the first time player getting into scenarios with friends to the experienced tournament player, the staff - ChaB and Jason make an honest effort to understand your paintball needs and speak with enthusiasm for the game.
Something not in stock? I have ordered several items - dye atc's, ultralite barrels, all arrive in as timely fashion as the distributor / manufacturer allow. Effort seems to be made to keep a well stocked store (even though orders can be made)- so rather than just ordering out of magazines or being unsure of how something looks you have an item that you can hold in your hands and be sure you wont be shipped the wrong size / color - the ability to purchase it on the spot. !!!!! support your local shop!! Prices are very very competitive and allow you to keep playing the game in as competative manner as your hunger for the game demands!!
overall the honest evaluation this store gets a 10/10

I've played at the Edge, Apacolypse, and Stalker. This field is badass and most other fields can not even compare.
The field and store are both well set up by a couple of guys that have been in the game for awhile. They know what they are talking about and there isnt any bs going on. The owner plays on an experienced team that does well. All tournaments and open play run smooth and prices dont really fluctuate tremendously like at most other fields. IF YOU END UP GOING TO THIS FIELD AS JASON OR CHAD ABOUT THAT POOP CHARACTER FROM JANESVILLE, that guy is crazy and has some mad skills.
The Siege - Still bitter the day the players had to setup the airball field.
Paintball Sam's - Back in my woodsballer days.
Dedicated - Small compared to PE.
Apocalypse - Has jacked prices, team practice is basically 2 or 3 teams that say you can't jump into rotation with them.
Well, sorry folks, this field isn't open to the public yet. I had the opportunity to participate in the first team practice of 2005 at Planet Extreme, and the one 5-man field they have did the job. Everything ran smooth. When they're really open, they'll have set in stone prices instead of like X amount for entry then X amount for all day air. Paint prices will be reasonable too. Keep your eyes on this field, this place has a prime location, and when it's open, it'll be all the rage between tourney and recballers alike. Also, they currently have a really nice proshop. Check out their webpage (http://www.planetextreme.net) if you don't know where it is. If they don't have what you're looking for, they can get it in a few days more than likely.

Uncle Chab is awesome, definitely go to this store and get the mad hookup with gear here! Great deals on gear and paint, Chad can get you just about anything you need, rec or tourny ball stuff! The crew that hangs out there is awesome too, funny bunch of guys, very helpful as well. Just tell Chab or Lysol that Weedbutter or Resin Ball sent you, and you'll get a phat hook up from them. They are great guys, can't wait til the field officially opens up!

The location that Greg and Michelle has for planet extreme is AWESOME. They more then enough land so that the fields can fairly large and not be right on top of each other. Since i am a hard core tourney ball player(i play NCPA College ball) this place is great, there will be two awesome air-ball fields set up at all time. with two fields people don't have to wait so damn long to get back on the field again, plus if there is a team practice there is still at least one other air ball field for the public to use. since they have the land they have the ability to either host a big tourney or even have a large scenario game. One really sweet thing that a lot of people over look, is that this field has a huge pavilion. no more having to put you stuff on the ground because there are no table left. dot have to worry about it raining and not having a covered table. this pavilion can hold hundreds of people. since this this is so big, once he really gets going, since they also have their own store, they should have a pretty sweet proshop at the field. and if they don't have what you need right there at the field, the shop is like ten minutes away. the field should be open to the public this summer(2005). since im sponsored by them my team and i get to play some air ball out there before they open to the public.
in closing, if you always have to drive an hour or more to get to apoc, or don't want to go to the siege anymore, then this summer go to Planet Extreme Paintball, you'll love it. also check out there new paintball store, the web site is not finished yet but it has there phone and address on it. their store rocks. they have a lot of good stuff there, and if they don't have it they should be able to order it. Thanks for Greg and Michelle Lake Geneva is sportin a sweet paintball field and shop. go check them out,
SUPPORT THE LOCAL SHOP.
