Beanie Babies, Jurassic Park, Bill Clinton and Seinfeld were among the headliners in 1993— along with the introduction of WhirlyBall. Naperville moms likely remember all those trips for their teens to attend birthday parties at the entertainment mecca when it first started as a single location in Lombard.

Today WhirlyBall has grown from that single location with a couple of courts, arcade games and a concession window to a multi-story megaplexe with five locations across the Midwest, including one at 3103 Odyssey Court in Naperville.

On Sun., Jan. 15, 2023, WhirlyBall will be celebrating its first three decades by offering free rounds of WhirlyBall from 4PM to closing at all locations. Visitors will find raffle prizes including gift certificates and birthday party packages that will be given away on-site.

All locations will offer WhirlyBall free on a first-come-first-serve basis via its Eventbrite page.
