Great paintball fields around Chicago?

Anyways, in a few months my brother has a hockey tournament in Chicago. I'm planning on bringing my gear, and I'd like to know of the good fields in the Chicago area. Is famous CPX sports one of the best? Oh, and how will I be crossing the border both ways, I live in Canada, I'm not sure if thats something they would have a problem with?

I think as long as your tank is DOT sealed as well, and it's empty, I don't think you'd have a problem.
Maybe Canadians can help more than me.

Never been to PBX but my friends went once and had an awful time, the paint they got was awful and the employees would do nothing about it.
My favorite by far is Fox Paintball in millington. The woodsball is fun, the speedball is fun, and the employees are awesome. Its also BYOP and is VERY cheap in comparison to the two before. Fox Paintball is the best IMO.

FOX- never been to this field. They are outdoors and have air ball and scenario. This place is pretty popular and the paint is cheap, in a good way.
CPX- Good fields and everything. It is fun but during the winter time it gets really cold which is why i play indoors at PBE. There paint is REALLY expensive. it is $90 a case of marbalizers and there is still a fee for admission. The fields are also far away from eachother so prepare to do a lot of walking.
PBE- I personally like PBE the best because the paint is cheaper ($55 cases on saturdays 5-10 and $65 cases on thursday 4-10. Only including airball but the paint is really good too). I have only had one bad experience with PBE paint and that was because i forgot to examine before leaving the proshop. If you open the paint in the proshop and discover bad paint they will allow you to switch it out for better paint.
