Enjoy Some Indoor Fun in Naperville

Group of friends having fun with indoor activities at a retro 70's roller disco.

Make the best of cold or rainy weather with some indoor fun. Just a short drive away from Thornberry Woods apartments, there are several entertainment venues that you may not have had a chance to check out yet. Here are a few of our favorites: 


Get a group of friends or coworkers together and try the fun new game that combines basketball, lacrosse, hockey, and bumper cars. At Whirlyball in Lombard, you can play that crazy game, as well as pool and vintage arcade games. It’s a great place to have a party or go on a date.

You won’t even need to go anywhere else to eat because they serve a variety of delicious foods. Share an appetizer like wings or egg rolls, create your own mac-n-cheese, or enjoy pizza, sandwiches, or street tacos. Wash it all down with a beer from a local brewery or split a huge fishbowl filled with Whirlypunch. You’ll feel like a kid again at Whirlyball!


It opened 60 years ago with only eight lanes, but since then, Suburbanite Bowl has expanded to 24 lanes and has been renovated several times. If you really like bowling, this is the place for you because they offer unlimited bowling for only $12. (Note: the price is $4 more after 6 pm on Friday and Saturdays). You can also play pool and arcade games. 

When you get hungry, order food from the iPads and Zazzo’s will deliver. Their specialty is pizza, but the menu has many other options like pasta, burgers, wraps, ribs, and more.  


Relive your younger days and burn lots of calories at Lombard Roller Rink. Every Monday from 7-8 pm is Adult Skating Class for $5. Skate rental is $4. Also, check out themed nights like Flashback Friday and St. Patty’s Day Skate. They also have women’s and men’s roller derby leagues.

If you’d rather dance than skate, take a Zumba class every Monday from 6-7 pm. The cost is $6 per class, and when you get a loyalty card, you can earn free classes.

If you’re looking for a new place to call home, we’d love for you to be a part of the Thornberry Woods community. Located in the western suburbs of Chicago, we are close to all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment you could ever want. Contact us for a tour of one of our beautiful apartment homes.
