About WhirlyBall Lombard
In 1993, Sam Elias, our founder, moved from Florida to Chicago to bring the people what they always wanted: 4,000 square feet to bump cars, cross check, slam dunk, and embarrass themselves without getting arrested. And as it happened...this was an extremely good idea.
Another location opened near downtown Chicago as well as Vernon Hills. Then, to the delight of daredevils and adrenaline junkies everywhere, we added laser tag facilities and climbing walls!
