  • Burr Oak Bowl
    Unlike most activities, bowling rewards you for knocking things over. Guests knock things over nightly at these indoor recreation centers in the south suburbs and DeKalb. Bowling lanes at all three locations facilitate relaxed family nights with automatic scoring and bumper options for groups playing with small children. Friday and Saturday nights, the lights dim for more glamorous glow bowling. Fog machines billow mist across the ground as laser and disco lights cast colorful patterns through the air. Every night after close, Kegel Kustodian machines brush over each lane to ensure consistent conditions for the next day of playing. Each spot also keeps famished players satisfied with sandwiches, pizzas, and appetizers served at an onsite restaurant. The Burr Oak location entertains numerous galas at a 100-guest banquet hall, and in Oak Forest, the goods times move outdoors for summertime volleyball and bean-bag tossing at The Park.

    Go-karts roar across the racetrack, bumper boats collide, and the cracking sound of confined home runs rings out from batting cages. This multisensory symphony fills the landscaped grounds of Fun Time Square, where attraction after attraction beckons visitors of all ages to kiddie train rides, 18 holes of mini golf, and the blinking lights of pinball machines in the onsite arcade. More intense thrills unfold at a paintball field, where abandoned cars, inflated cover, and war-torn art teachers guard players from enemy paint.

  • The Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn
    After health, the most important thing parents want for their children is a good education, and that means learning inside the classroom and out. But if learning becomes simply memorizing facts in a textbook, it quickly turns into a chore, leading kids to lives of mindless entertainment and ignoring the last 12 mystery ingredients on junk-food labels. To combat this, The Children?s Museum in Oak Lawn introduces children to the arts, sciences, and industry with a series of engaging exhibits that uphold the standards set by the Illinois State Board of Education. These exhibits occupy every inch of their two-story facility, giving kids hands-on experience with concepts such as cause and effect, gravity, and motion. Painting and dress-up theaters cultivate healthy imaginations, and the infant tummy-time zone allows even the tiniest guests to flex their neck muscles and reach stuffed-animal friends. In addition to daily visitors, The Children?s Museum in Oak Lawn welcomes school field trips and family birthday parties.

  • Brunswick Arena Lanes
    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).
