Beneath a tangle of ivy and vines, a giant python slithers past a giraffe and his rhinoceros chum. As youngsters rush toward the clutter of creatures, what sounds like a scene from the jungle transforms into a day of indoor amusement at Go Bananas. In addition to the miniature python-themed roller coaster and a train ride circling the giraffe and rhino, tykes defy gravity in the bounce castle, collide into other bumper car drivers, and calculate friction coefficients while pummeling down the slide. After scaling the multilevel climbing structure and navigating its tunnels and tubes, kids can return to terra firma to dispense tokens into the arcade's abundant machines, which include classics such as Centipede, skee-ball, and air hockey, and newer games such as Big Bass Wheel and Deal or no Deal.
At the snack bar below a mock thatched roof, staffers reenergize guests with treats such as pizza and Hershey's ice cream before they revisit rides with their parents, who can ride along for free.

Pickwick Theatre, home to one of the Chicago area’s largest theaters, showcases the latest Hollywood blockbusters inside a historic, registered-landmark building. Patrons flood their visual and aural receptors with the theater’s current list of films displayed on one of three screens, including an expansive main auditorium that seats 1,000 people or mannequins comically brought to life.

Blanketed in wall-to-wall trampolines, Sky High Sports delights barefoot fun-seekers with springy terrain and an exclusive court for jumpers 8 and younger. Guests can hone front flips, back flips, and belly flops during intense free-bounce sessions. Each trampoline comes equipped with a specially designed spring-loaded frame and thick, 2-inch safety pads that grant patrons a landing cushier than a corner office at a marshmallow factory. Stuffed with blocks of spongy, body-molding material, a foam pit dares treasure-seekers to fling themselves in or scour its depths for the lost contents of bygone pockets. Pintsize aerialist posses can safely practice their synchronized Salchows on 360 degrees of trampoline walls while court supervisors watch from the sidelines and award hard-earned praise with oversize scorecards.
Sky High also offers AIRobics fitness classes and monthly dodge-ball tournaments to help jumpers explore the outermost stratospheres of trampoline possibilities.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.99 value).
