  • Sun Aero Helicopters
    The pilots at Sun Aero Helicopters Inc. have been training pupils in the autogiro arts and transporting clients through the skies since 1991. Inside their base at Lansing Municipal Airport, aviators maintain a 12,000-square-foot hangar area and 3,000 square feet of training offices and high-speed computerized flight-planning facilities. Expert pilots impart their knowledge to up-and-coming FBI agents, police officers, emergency medical technicians, and leisure pilots during one-on-one training sessions in Robinson and Bell copters. Pilots also give landlubbers a skyscraper's view of Chicago's landmarks, such as US Cellular Field, the John Hancock building, and the Sears/Willis Tower. When they aren't transporting rally drivers, golfers, and famous wiffle ball players with private charter services, Sun Aero serves national media companies with aerial photography and land surveys.

  • British Swim School
    Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to learners aged 3 months and older, adhering to a curriculum devised by British national swimmer Rita Goldberg. The 30-minute one-on-one sessions and small-group lessons, containing six or fewer swimmers, elucidate essential techniques for water safety and the importance of speaking fluent manatee. Swimboree (ages 3 months?3 years with parents) and Young Minnows sessions (ages 1?3 years without parents) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly and little-known mountain-goat flail. Certain British Swim School classes require parents to participate in the water or to supervise from the pool deck, and adults-only lessons allow grown-ups to refine their own abilities without the supervision of a toddler.

  • Chicago Archery
    Archers line up 20 yards from their targets. They take aim, pull back on the bow, and thump, thump, thump. The arrows find their targets in quick succession. After a few lessons at Chicago Archery Academy, students can become masters in the sport fairly quickly. The studio is set up to teach students the basic techniques, and then let them come back on their own schedule with monthly open shooting passes at the indoor range. Once students conquer the 25-yard line while working with professional targets, safety light indicators, and convenient bow hangers, they can upgrade their equipment or bring in their bows for maintenance in the on-site pro shop.

  • The HUB at Berens Park
    The Hub at Berens Park invites guests of all ages with a sprawling complex dedicated to wholesome fun. Groups can seek out par across the Hub's 18-hole miniature golf course, which encircles a scenic water feature, or protect the strike zone at the batting cages, where softballs and baseballs dart over the dish at speeds ranging from 40 to 80 miles per hour. A circuit of mini geysers erupts throughout the 6,000-square-foot spray ground, where tykes can freely frolic and arm themselves with Big Squirts?refillable water toys available for purchase at the equipment window?for leverage in juice-box hostage situations. The Hub also encompasses a playground with youth- and tot-friendly equipment, an indoor facility with restrooms and a concessions stand, and a party room families can rent for birthday parties or guileless secret-society meetings.

  • Chicago Archery
    Established: 2010 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 30?60 minutes Pro Tip: Wear comfortable clothing Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Archery Tag Recommended Age Group: All Ages As the owner of Chicago Archery Academy, Casey has taught students to aim using Olympic recurve bows, traditional recurve bows, longbows, and compound bows. But the real enthusiasm at his training range stems from his latest creation, Archery Tag, which he describes as "paintball but with bows and arrows." The event takes place in an arena much like a paintball field, with areas of cover and open expanses. Unlike paintball's projectiles, though, the soft, foam-tipped arrows never leave welts, bruises, or marks. The tip of each arrow resembles nothing so much as a marshmallow, which is not known for its aerodynamics. In fact, the shafts fly through the air slowly enough that a participant who is paying attention can dodge them in helping their team claim victory.
