Best indoor amusement parks in Chicago and the suburbs


Safari Land Indoor Amusement Park

Kids will love: Tiger Terror is the largest indoor roller coaster in Illinois that climbs almost to the ceiling with stomach-flopping drops. My sons loved that they had a “real” Tilt-a-Whirl.

Adults will love: Atlantis Restaurant is tasty and comfortable, situated right at the front door, a great check-in point for the kids.

Mechanical rides: Tiger Terror roller coaster, Snake Pit bumper cars, Safari Speedway go-karts, Tilt-a-Whirl, MaxFlight flight simulator, mini carousel.

Other features: Animal theme offers good photo ops outside and inside. Bowling alley and pool tables, soft play area for young children. Rides are all restricted by height so take a look around to see what your children will be able to do before buying tickets or wristbands. Tons of video and ticket redemption games.

Food options: Atlantis Restaurant includes amusement park staples plus appetizers, salads, homemade pizza, spaghetti and chicken parmesan. All very reasonably priced.

Admission/attraction price: Individual rides cost between $1.50 (carousel) and $5 (flight simulator) per ride. Best bet is a wristband for $15 (non-holiday Monday-Friday) or $20 (weekends and holidays).
