There’s a new game in town that’s got Naperville residents whirling away with excitement.


Whirlyball is loosely described as lacrosse played in bumper cars, and you don’t need to be an athlete to play.

“We’ll teach you how to play,” said Whirlyball Vice President Adam Elias. “Your first game you’re going to learn how to drive, how to pick up the ball. But by the second and third games, you’re really going to get into it and you’re going to start having a lot of fun.”

The Naperville location is the fifth Whirlyball facility in the U.S. and fourth in the Chicagoland area.

More Fun Activities

The 41,000 square foot location also offers a restaurant called The Pivot Room and 12 lanes of bowling.

And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try Hyper Bowling, where you get multiplied points for banking it off the bumpers.

“Our job is to help people have fun and create memorable experiences,” said Elias. “That’s what we want to strive for for our guests.”
