Where are we going today?

WhirlyBall combines the action and strategy of Basketball, Hockey and Lacrosse, with the fun and excitement of Bumper Cars.
Players move up and down a 4,000 sq. ft. court in electrically-powered bumper cars, and use plastic scoops to pass and shoot a plastic ball at a target on the opposing team's backboard. The cars are also used to bump the players on the other team to prevent them from getting a clear shot at the target. A referee is provided who gives instruction on how to play, calls penalties, keeps score on a large scoreboard, and does some play-by-play commentary.

    A great winter activity!! So much fun and you can either pregame beforehand or drink at their bar. Great time for birthdays or with friends over the holidays.

    Friend had a private party here, two hour package: WhirlyBall court & two bowling lanes.

    - They would only give us a wristband deal if EVERYONE purchased it including people that were not drinking.

    -Initially 1 out of our 2 bowling lanes was down and took a very long time to fix. They added the downtime back to our party package but, it didn't matter. The bowling lanes would shut down or restart sporadically during game play.

    -WhirlyBall progressively got worse. The first two games were fun for everyone. By the end of the night the Ref/Service...Read More

    Have you ever played? You need to do it at least once. Whirlyball beit for company functions or just friends having fun gives you a legitimate excuse to bump, push, and race your peers. Even if you're terrible and your team loses every round, it's a good time. I am a disadvantaged short arm person but do what I can to run some hard defensive driving. You'll be amazed at how fast your game begins and ends.

    I have had fun playing there. Friendly stuff, decent price.

    The only thing I didn't like was that the place is king of old and it needs some renewal. Nevertheless, I had a lot of fun, and that's why it's 5 stars.

    If you live in Chicago long enough you'll come here for a team building outing or birthday party. The building is located off of an industrial strip of Fullerton and is partitioned off into sections for WhirlyBall, arcade games and laser tag. The facilities leave a bit to be desired (mediocre food, dusty equipment) but the staff is very helpful and after running around you'll stop noticing the shortcomings.

-WhirlyBall progressively got worse. The first two games were fun for everyone. By the end of the night the Ref/Service Tech were pushing the bumper cars around the court because they wouldn't function properly.

-Service was poor

-Parking is a disaster

-Really nice building, nice furniture, clean,

-Go to Lombard Whirlyball instead.

Other reviews note that the place smells. This is true, it's the smell of competition... and burning electric engine parts along with burnt rubber. You kind sorta get used to it after 5 minutes but I could see how it could cause some sensitive noses some grief. This place has a bar ... they also have a kitchen but I urge you to stick to *simple* drinks at the bar. Think mid-shelf liquor XYZ and soda or stick to beer. They have a pretty good tap list. I did see that they are trying to charge "cover" on weekend nights if you're not scheduled to play. That's pretty ridiculous.
