    There is a group of us who used to play Whirlyball in Ann Arbor, MI in the 1980s. We got wind of the whirlyball in Chicago when here attending a conference. We booked a court. It is just as crazy and ...  more »

    Who knew lacrosse on bumper cars could be so fun? I was here for a company event, and we had a blast! The only reason it doesn't have five stars is the drinks are priced a little high ($25 for a shot from a bottle that costs $50 off the shelf).

    Went for a privet party good price for the package. A lot more fun then I thought it was going to be! Waitstaff was. A bit slow but fantastic made sure we got the most out of our package.

    One of the best team activities in Chicago. The new location is more upscale and fancy than the old one, but the game is still the same. They also have a huge beer list and plenty of food (which was OK).

    Had a lot of fun here. Staff was friendly and really made our time great here. Would definitely recommend anyone who hasn't played WhirlyBall to give it a try.

    Free your inner child. It's insanely silly, if whirly ball didn't exist it would be necessary to invent it. Good selection of beers, relaxed staff and referees for when you get a bit antsy on the bumper car floor. Highly recommended. Great team building or circuit breaker fun. Probably not suitable for really young kids or anyone who doesn't want to make a fool of themselves.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
