Area 52 is dedicated to concentrating on the fun and enjoyment of paintball. We have games geared towards new players while the fields make it enjoyable for the most experienced. We want our players to have fun, to enjoy the game, and to want to come back.
Send us pics of you in your Area 52 gear and we will post it online.
Area 52 is owned and operated by the Morgan family, Larry is always at the shop with advice and a smile.  Area 52 is nestled between Peoria and Bloomington in the village of Mackinaw, IL.  It is Central Illinois' premier paintball field, with three fields to choose from, a fully stocked Pro Shop, excellent staging areas (indoor and out), and bathrooms; it has everything you would need to enjoy a day of paintball.  If you get hungry or need to quench your thirst, there is a fully stocked refrigerator with sports and energy drinks, and for those hunger pains after hours of hard playing, you can get a hot pizza.
If you need to take a break from playing, head over to the pro shop. Area 52's pro shop contains all of the parts needed to upgrade and tech your gun.  Area 52 stocks parts and markers from Smart Parts, Dye, and Tippmann, just to name a few.  Do you want the latest mask, jersey, or hopper?  You name it, they have it.  If you canít find it at the shop, Area 52 can order anything you want no matter how obscure.  At Area 52 Larry gives you the flexibility to try it before you buy; take it on the field and see if it is actually as good as the reviews in the magazines.  Area 52 will also price matche and advertised prices and will accept trade-ins if you are looking to upgrade your equipment.
