For some reason I couldn't post this in News

per their Facebook page


CPX Sports
The end of an era…

It is with mixed emotion that we announce CPX Sports has entered into a contract to sell it’s property located in Joliet, IL, and will not reopen in 2018. We are proud to have served the paintball community over the past 18 years, showing hundreds of thousands of players the warm hospitality that we have become globally known for. The land will be used to build a bridge that will ensure the continued economic growth of Joliet and Will County that provides so many families and individuals with the jobs and stability that they deserve.

The spirit of CPX will live on through our traveling CPX Events series as it makes it’s way around the country. We would like to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication to excellence. Without them, we could never have reached the level of prestige that we have become synonymous with. They can look back on their time at CPX and count it as a job well done. We would also like to thank our friends, peers, and partners in the paintball industry for their support through thick and thin. Without it, we wouldn’t have made it to the finish line. And finally, to the players, whom we always looked at more as family than as customers - thank you for being a part of the legend of CPX Sports.

While the iconic park located at 2903 Schweitzer Rd will rest easy in it’s place in paintball history, as this chapter closes, a new chapter begins that we are excited to see unfold. We look forward to a bright future in paintball and hope to see you on the field….

Veni, Vidi, Vici

This sucks. I always wanted to play there.

This seriously blows. I remember reading through when they declared LLXI to be moved because of construction, and hearing that there was a potential for an imminent domain claim, but I never thought it would actually happen. I was REALLY hoping for Legends to come back to CPX, now all I can hope is that it doesn't stay at Hell Survivors

Combined these all into one thread to keep it neat.

Thankyou YHWA and Yashoah for letting Forest Brown open a Paintball, BMX, Skateboard, and Mountain bike Extreme park on Joliet IL in 2000 AD.
Without it, thousands would not have been able to be introduced to the sport of paintball.
