We received complimentary passes to visit Main Event in Warrenville. We had a blast and all opinions (and silly faces!) are our own.
This past weekend, we celebrated my birthday and had an opportunity to head out to the new Main Event in Warrenville. Main Event is an all-in-one family entertainment center with bowling, laser tag, arcade games, casual dining and much more. With everything you need to have a blast under one roof, Main Event is the perfect place for fun, food and more! With five boys in tow, we hoped it would be a place to expend energy, have fun and keep everyone happy. It far exceeded our expectations!
The bigger boys tried laser tag with Jim and loved interacting with other people and this was one of their favorite activities. My highlight was definitely bowling. With options for a variety of screens, including our personal favorite YouToons, we spent so much time just enjoying the funny videos created and personalized with our faces and expressions. A glow-in-the-dark feel and bumpers available per bowler, I was extremely impressed with the layout and visual. The large oversized booths made family viewing during bowling made it comfy and cozy. Not to mention the food! We tried two appetizers and they were devoured within minutes!
The littles and I then headed to the arcade and we could easily have spent days there. Bright lights, big screens and tons of chances to win prizes, we had a blast bouncing around from the common ones (think Skee Ball) to more advanced options like Batman where you could “drive” any number of Batmobiles. The boys and I easily spent 45 minutes defeating pirates and ghosts in a sit-down ship game. It was thoroughly enjoyable! While we were there, my nephews spent some time up top on the ropes defying gravity. I loved the fact that I could see both them and the boys while they were playing in the arcade.
One of my last favorite moments of the night was when the staff and guests got together to dance to a song in the main hall. It was the perfect end to a lovely night! One of my favorite parts of Main Event was DEFINITELY the staff. They were friendly, helpful and ready to assist at a moment’s notice. They interacted with all of us wonderfully and even egged me on a bit when I was losing to my nephew in bowling (and I was using the bumpers!) All in all, it was a wonderful day and definitely something we would go back to experience!
Check out this special they have going on until November 21st:
