  • Six Flags Great America
    Huge roller coaster drops, massive splash zones, and some of the biggest cartoon characters in the world. That's what you're getting at any Six Flags, and at Great America, you can add a dose of BATMAN and SUPERMAN for good measure. There are more than a dozen roller coasters, water experiences, and thrill rides at Illinois's biggest amusement park—take a look at a few of the newest and most popular: Raging Bull: This bull is 202 feet tall, 5,057 feet long, and rushes at 73 miles per hour. That makes it hands down the park's best-in-class in all the right places. Its inclined loops increase the Gs to simulate the experience of barely hanging onto the saddle, and the 20-story initial slope and 65-degree drop earned the coaster the distinction of being the world's first "hyper-coaster." JUSTICE LEAGUE – Battle for Metropolis: Fitting right in with longtime favorite attractions BATMAN: The Ride and SUPERMAN: Ultimate Flight, Great America's newest thrill ride ramps up the excitement with a 4D animated attack by THE JOKER and LEX LUTHOR. Armed with a working laser gun, riders join forces with the Justice League to zap these villains and more while the six-person car rumbles through real-life wind, fire, mist, and fog effects. Columbia Carousel: When you and your kids need a break from the excitement of Hurricane Harbor and the double-corkscrew of the Demon, hitch a ride on one of the 106 ornate chariots, horses, and magical creatures of the Columbia Carousel. The double-decker merry-go-round is one of the first things visitors see on entering the park, and dazzles riders and spectators alike with historical oil paintings and 1,000 sparkling lights.

  • Rink Side Sports & Family Entertainment Center
    Tip-toeing around black columns illuminated with rings of neon, players catch and zap friends the second they show themselves under the fluorescent light's glow. This happens every day inside Rink Side Sports' 2,000-square-foot Laser Blast arena, which accommodates up to 20 players per match. Just outside that arena, an arcade erupts in a cacophony of bells and whistles emanating from more than 100 video and redemption games. Nearby on the ice rink, ice is carved during public skating hours and kids master the triple Lutz during figure-skating programs led by experienced instructors, many of whom belong to the Professional Skaters Association. These activities all exist under one roof, as well as a 2,700-square-foot 18-hole black-light mini-golf course and a snack bar, which serves hand-tossed pizzas that can be tossed by hand into eaters’ mouths.

  • Pump It Up Party Chicago
    Pump It Up's indoor arenas are filled with huge inflatables and interactive attractions. The Super Star team supervises and entertains the kids during visits, and parents are always free and encouraged to jump, bounce, slide and play with the kids. Ask about the Glow experience—a kid favorite. The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their children will be safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.
