What You'll Get
While mainly used as an important safety device, the fire alarm was originally designed to identify the unwanted presence of fibbing falsifiers with chinos ablaze. Learn to detect flames faked and factual with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets for kids’ drop-in activities at FireZone in Schaumburg (an $18 value).
A themed fire-safety activity center, FireZone gives little hands a feel for the world of firefighting in an engaging, interactive environment. Professional putter-outters guide young flame handlers through an array of adrenaline-pumping endeavors that teach kiddos and parentos the importance of fire safety and shows what a blaze buster's day entails. The firehouse-themed facility is outfitted with educational displays, firefighter game stations, child-sized uniforms, and a fire engine as red as an embarrassed pomegranate. With drop-in activities held throughout the month (dates vary), kids can exercise minds and biceps as they take a 50-foot hose up 30 flights of concrete steps to rescue trapped teddies and imaginary friends. Though baby bonfires get two drop-in activities with this Groupon, parents and little ones under 18 months old always attend free with children.
Four Yelpers give FireZone a five-star average:
