WhirlyDome brings the sport of WhirlyBall to Orlando, along with the latest games, activities and the new Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery – Orlando’s new local hangout.

The WhirlyDome, Orlando’s newest and perhaps most unique attraction located in the heart of International Drive, is set to open its doors in and will introduce Orlando to the world’s first totally mechanized team sport – WhirlyBall.

WhirlyBall is best described as a combination of bumper cars, basketball, Jai-alai and hockey. The game is typically played 5-on-5, with players piloting WhirlyBugs (high tech bumper cars) as they use a scoop to pass and shoot a plastic ball at their opponent’s goal while bumping and blocking their way around the court. Games have a referee to enforce the rules, keep score and make sure all players have a great time. The game requires no prior experience – and absolutely no athletic skills at all! Already popular in Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta and other cities, WhirlyBall Orlando is sure to be a winner with two courts available for play.

WhirlyDome visitors can also experience the sights, sound and adrenaline rush of what it’s like to drive a Formula One race car. The WhirlyDome is home to the new Formula One racing simulator from Evotek Engineering – the first of its kind in the U.S. Created in Italy, this simulator is modeled after the F1 simulators used by professional racing teams.

WhirlyDome also offers Lazer Frenzy, where players navigate a maze of laser beams, haze and mirrors, as well as the latest in Laser Tag. Guests will also find pool tables and a variety of arcade games.

WhirlyDome isn’t just a place to play, it’s also a place to relax and unwind while enjoying a drink, lunch or dinner at Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery. Bloodhound Brew is a casual pub featuring local specialty craft beers and a full menu made from scratch with both indoor and outdoor seating.

WhirlyDome has multiple party rooms with complete AV capabilities and is ready to provide the food and fun for large corporate functions, family reunions and everything in between.

There is no admission charge at the WhirlyDome. Visitors pay only for activities that they take part in.

  • So I will be honest on not knowing how fun it is for a regular guest, but if you have a group of 10 or more - WhirlyDome is crazy fun!! I took my management team there for an outing and what a blast!!...  more »
  • Stopped by with a group of 4 adults. Bought a package deal for 3 games per person. First, we did the whirly ball and it is a hoot. We had never done anything like it-sort of a mix of bumper cars, lacr...  more »
  • Pros: WhirlyBall, Laser tag, and the car simulation. We also enjoyed the Dance Revolution and Basketball Arcade games. Staff was very nice! Cons: Easy to overspend because of the card system. The menu...  more »

  • Lots of games to play. People are great employees and guest. When we arrived a lady gave is cards for the kids (free games. When we left we gave ours away as well. A nice tradition). The service was excellent.
  • Come for the Whirly Ball or not at all! It was a blast, even with the place nearly empty due to a credit card issue they had that night. The employees were awesome and offered to fill in the extra slots for our game! Avoid the laser maze, as it is the size of a large closet. The arcade was pitifully small and contained few interesting games. We ended up leaving before trying laser tag.
  • One of my favorite activities in Orlando. Next to the major attractions this is the most fun. $8 per game most days. Sundays and Thursdays are all you can play from 6-10, $25 for Whirleyball and laser tag. Great deal, and a great time! Don't know what Whireyball is? Don't worry, most people don't. Bumper cars, got it. Basketball/ lacrosse team game, good. Smash them together, Awesome!!! I've brought a bunch of different groups to play, who had never heard of it before, and loved it by the time we left. The staff is nice, they all seem to enjoy what they do, they're involved and facilitate the fun. Bartender/waiter is quite good, drink specials are a fun mix to the events. The food is also pretty good - wraps, burgers, nachos and more. The kitchen does take a while though. Overall, I could not recommend this place enough- wish I could go every week
  • Been here twice now. It is a truly amazing, fun place. Whirly ball is awesome. Plus, the food here is great and the bartenders are friendly. If I lived in Orlando, I'd come to this place weekly.
  • It is fun if you go in a group to hangout. If you go alone they have some arcade games but it's better if you go in a group and play laser tag or bumper cars.
