WhirlyBall is a team game, where players zoom around in go carts trying to score a ball in a basket-ball height net using lacrosse sticks. This adult arcade also has laser tag, a bowling alley, and arcade games to pair with a great craft beer selection.


The Flat Iron in Wicker Park has a game room with Multipede and a few other games.
