Whirlyball is a truly unique offering. Whoever thought of combining bumper cars, basketball, those whiffle ball tossing gloves, and booze was a genius.
Whirlyball is a 5v5 game involving driving bumper cars around a court trying to throw a ball into a small circle on a backboard. It sounds confusing but it's a blast.
The new location is incredible - bowling, laser tag, more whirlyball courts and a TON of open seating, couches, food and drink options. Huge improvement over the last place which was clearly very old.
Definitely worth going to for the games, not if you're just looking for a bar.
I have to admit that I thought you would be somewhat cheesy and "not my cup o' tea" upon entering your high sensory space but you proved me otherwise. Yes, you were cheesy, but in the best of ways. Plus, what better way to get to know your coworkers than some friendly competition via bowling and whirlyball? I was also pretty impressed by your American-style bar eats. Special shout out to the beer cheese and pretzels and wings. I really did a number on those bad boys...
For those who are unfamiliar with Whirlyball: it's a combo of bumper cars/basketball and lacrosse (said the sports-challenged lady). It's ridiculously fun, exciting and sweaty. Dress accordingly, my friend. They have 3 or 4 Whirlyball rooms/courts that can be rented as well as 10 lanes for bowling, tvs a'plenty and liquor license to loosen up your whirly throwing arms.
Great spot for team bonding with coworkers, birthday parties, group dates, you name it.
I love WhirlyBall. I literally was yelling and going crazy trying to get the ball, absolutely making a fool of myself! However, I will be hosting my next birthday here so I'll be allowed to be as ridiculous as I want with limited consequences since it's my birthday.
Overall, i had a blast. This game would be awesome with a group and some cocktails. It has bowling, whirly ball courts and best of all, a bar. This place reminds me of paradise!
I had such an amazing time at whirlyball! A friend and I went to the grand opening and we got to try amazing cocktails and food. My favorite was the Berries in a barrel. It was so strong.
I had an absolute blast playing laser tag. I felt like a kid again! I didn't have a chance to bowl but I loved how there were couches behind the lanes. I loved how you could relax on the couches while also bowling. There were plenty of TVs with all the games on. I am definitely having my next Birthday at whirlyball!
I had such an amazing time at whirlyball!
Whirlyball is the best! I'm in a touring musical and when other casts are in town, we always have a whirlyball challenge! So when Mormon, 1st Wives, Beauty and the Beast and Peter and the Starcatcher all converged on Chicago, we had to play! With a group of about 70, the staff was able to get drinks and food out within a reasonable amount of time and they were great about making sure we had everything we needed! They have plenty of space to make things comfortable and we will definitely be back!
Awesome work event. So fun to see the competitive side of your colleagues especially at a "sport" they are not good at! Food is good and full bar. Andre was our server and he was great! Will come again for sure. Highly recommended.
Whirlyball was great! I celebrated my birthday here and I had a blast.. The new facility is amazing, plus the staff is very friendly! Our referee was great, really enthusiast and very accommodating, however the cars did tend to stop at times, but our referee did her best to get us new cars. Also, the food was fantastic. The burgers and the buffalo wings were great! Everything was fresh. They have a variety of cocktails. Definitely will be returning to Whirlyball!
