We have such a great time every time we visit! Fun for the whole family. The staff is amazing and makes every child feel special. We also attended the family game night and had a blast!


Had a great time on opening day with my nephew who’s 7. He didn’t want to leave because there’s so much to do. We were there 5 hours. Parents don’t worry, there’s a great spectators section with comfy chairs to relax in. Tons of interactive fun from making your own mascot to learning how to perform on video - just so much to mention. A must do if you have little kids or you just love mascots yourself as an adult.


Fun place!!! Who knew about the history of mascots - pretty cool. Also interactive and a blast for younger kids. Summer would be fun as you can walk to the lakefront which is also beautiful with an amazing skyline view of Chicago.
