Arcades, Laser Tag, and Game Rooms Now Open

Press PLAY to start, and get your game on! We’ve rounded up the best local arcades, laser tag and game rooms for kids (or kids at heart) in the western suburbs of Chicago.

For those of you new to the options, “game room” refers to places with varying forms of entertainment, buy mainly arcade-style games. Those with tickets and prizes are called “redemption arcades” and those games tend to be low-skill games where the number of tickets awarded is somewhat random. Retro and vintage arcades tend not to have prize redemption from tickets and the games are skill-based and more challenging. They may have a few machines such as basketball and Skee-Ball that are set to unlimited free play.

This article is sponsored by The Game Show, a vintage video and pinball arcade.
