Realms info and Directions.

19733 Bauer Rd, Custer Park, IL 60481-8407



Realms Of Ruin is situated on 80 acres of some of the best paintball terrain in the Midwest. Their claim to fame is the creek, which winds its way throughout the park with a network of bridges that connect many of the fields together. A game of "capture the flag" becomes extremely intense when one must cross a bridge to reach the opponentís flag. This special format is called "Cross-Creek."

Play on 11 exciting fields with names like Fury, Monk's Castle, Echo, Fear, Purgatory, Wrath, Ocularis Infernum, The Island, Amityville, Hobbís End, and No Manís Land. The fields have huge trees, thick brush, networks of connecting sand bunkers, trenches, bridges, forts, and hills.

Realms has a mostly sandy soil base, which means NO MUD! So when the torrential rains strike, itís "game on" 15 minutes later. The fields drain that quickly!

There's plenty of room for camping, tents, or campers. There is no running water or electricity, but they do provide port-a-potties. Campfires are allowed, you can buy firewood on the way to the field at one of the gas stations in town or forage for it on the property. Just be careful with fires if the weather has been dry.

Thereís a town nearby, Braidwood, Illinois, with a grocery store, McDonaldís, Ace Hardware, a burger joint, and even a Dairy Queen.

Thereís a motel in town if you donít feel like camping. The Braidwood Motel, 120 North Washington Street, Braidwood, IL, (815) 458-2321
