ON THE FUN FRONT | January 2016


This new monthly feature will highlight some pretty cool places throughout the western suburbs– the more unique, the better. After all, fun is a priority so we encourage you to LIVE. IT. UP.


Burn Calories Don’t be a hater! Be a roller skater....and burn calories while you’re at it.  Derby Lite offers exercise classes on roller skates for adventurous women 18+. No experience necessary. Derby Lite members laugh a lot as they burn a ton of calories, learn new skills, build muscle, improve balance, release endorphins and make new friends during this fun workout on wheels (energizing music included). Classes held at Lombard Roller Rink.

80'S ARCADE Play Your Old Favorites Are you ready for this? It’s quite possibly one of the coolest things to reach the ‘burbs in a long time– atleast for gamers of yesteryear, that is. At the Galloping Ghost Arcade, visitors pay $15 for unlimited playtime on 440+ classic games. No tokens required. And because we knew you’d ask, YES! Donkey Kong, Pac Man, and Q*Bert are all included. Located in Brookfield. Open ‘til 2am.

GOLFING Learn at TopGolf Wish you knew how to golf but never learned? Now’s your chance! No matter your age or skill level, Topgolf U offers golf lessons for everyone. Unlike traditional lessons on a driving range, Topgolf provides: • A fun, high energy atmosphere • Microchip technology with instant shot feedback from target • Slow motion video analysis • Covered, climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round comfort • Naperville

SKYDIVE Bucket List: Check! So you have Skydiving on your bucklist but you swear you’ll never jump out of a plane, huh? Then this place is perfect for you! They welcome flyers from 3 to 103 and if you have reasonable health and fitness you can fly. You can watch videos and find out what a typical visit to iFLY is like by visiting them online. The entire iFLY experience lasts about 1.5 hours and each flight is the equivalent of one and a half skydives. How cool is that? Located in Warrenville.
